Engine Management Light ? I have OBD software :)

Offer only open to 480 club members and good mates of members. I know the 480's dont have ODB ( they were cooler ad had they're own diag tool :) )

I have an OBD2 reader linked to a laptop with some very comprehensive software - covers most post 1999 cars.
Talks fine to my strange X plate Hyundai Elantra and can clear fault codes etc

If anyone needs codes read in the SE london area they can pop round and I'll see if I can read/ clear them.

I got it to help diagnose a problem on the Hyundai's ABS - it even showed real time data for the abs sensors.

Laters guys
