    For everyone's info:

    Software and leads from http://www.ross-tech.com/

    or it works out slightly cheaper to buy leads only from ebay http://cgi6.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... =3&rows=50 and then download & register s/w from ross-tech - although to be honest I'd be inclined to buy the whole package from ross-tech...

    I have VAG-COM and a 16 pin connection lead.

    I will help anybody in the Manchester area with a reading.

    Cheers

    Does that mean that G60 Fuel/Ignition fault codes cannot be read at all, or is it just VAG-COM that can't read them?

    Can they be read by the old VAG1551, or by using a diode/test lamp circuit?

    Laptop with VAG-COM

    I have the lead with 2*2 connector that fits VR6 Corrados up to 1994.

    Will help anyone out within the Manchester / Bolton Area

    It's not just as simple as "doing a copy" - even if it were legal :-)

    The copy protection in VAG-COM once it's registered means that it will only run on the PC that it was installed on... :-(

    Nope, sorry.

    Only the VR6 reports engine data. It's a *fully* managed engine. i.e. it's timed and injected electronically and the ECU is fully OBD1 compliant. 16Vs are mechanically injected and timed with a distributor. There are no crank or cam phase sensors and therefore nothing to actually report in that respect.

    I guess the 16V could report on O2 levels etc but the brain doesn't have that facility, AFAIK.

    I think some people have managed to talk to a G60 digifant ECU using some obscure hybrid protocol but it's a hit and miss affair.
