Hey guys

Im battling to find the right cable here in sunny sa (kkl i think) and was wandering if anyone could tell me this diagnostic cable would be the right one to use on a 2003 alfa 147 2.0TS.

Buy Parts & Accessories - Diagnostics cable for cars -VW, SEAT and AUDI must see!!!! ONLY R499!!!! - Cape Town - South Africa

I assume i would need to to the mod described by Smaky mentioned here :http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-147-156-and-gt/117886-tech-tip-have-obd2-alfadiag-but-cant-reset-airbag-light.html

Any Help would be appreciated, Thanks in advance

That looks like the right sort of cable ... but are you sure you've got a twin spark? I thought Alfa were only doing JTS's in 2003??? It might be different in SA though :confused: ... (and alfadiag doesn't support JTS's)

Buy two cables.

Leave one alone, engine ECU

on the other, switch pin 7 to pin 3.

Job done.

Just making you aware of other £££ options.

As long as the switch is properly integrated, you should have no problems.

Rarebears one allows one cable with a switch to control either the ECU or the airbag.



Me, I went for two cos I didn't fancy my soldering skills in fitting a switch small enough to be convenient.
