yes, dump connect (very old technology, no map updates etc) and get something like Seicane :

If you're not fixated on connect look-alike, there are lots of 2din models available of course ;)

t I did have a fully working system , albeit with slow technology.I have exhausted the manual and cannot find a way out.
The screen just stays grey and sometimes switches off and now doesn't after ign off.

Is there anyone out there, that might explain this please.
Do you also have a blinking odometer ?
If yes, you have a CAN bus problem, which could be the connect having a problem communicating.
If so, you could try a "Proxy Alignment" , either via dealer or DIY if you have MultiEcuScan

No blinking odemeter, just boots to a grey screen then shuts down , honestly when I got the car it has had so many flat batteries and junp starts , even when I have owned it in the last month , then flat again at MOT and jump started again , that I have put in a new battery, No fault of its own I suppose.
I tried Multiscan but it says I have the wrong lead so will not connect (pun)! to connect + or body computer perhaps someone can direct me to proper lead.

Proxy alignment ?
Many thanks for helping , I really dont want to spend 300 pounds as apart from sticky buttons it SEEMED to work!

If you look under the following, you can see the required leads for your car/module (note page loads a bit slow initialy) :

That's good thanks , should have known that , would I be able to sort the Proxy with normal Registered version or maybe worth it to go up a level.
I am getting a loan of a ELM CABLE tomorrow , if it doesn't connect then Ill buy the cable suggested.

.....
? There is no level up from the registered version ??
And yes, with the registered version you can perform a proxy alignment.

Multiplexed is the same tool, just a different fysical interface allowing you to do without the elm interface and adapter cables.....
