Hi All,

I bought the above unit from amazon. I have managed to connect it to my torque app on my phone but for some reason it cannot detect any fault codes. I know there are faults as these are being flashed flashed on small dashboard. I have tried another obd2 device and getting the same issue. Why would that be?

I got gearbox fault and faults with rear tail light which keeps on flashing. I know the cause of the lights fault but was interested in the issues with the gearbox .

OBD2 won't connect to the gearbox ECU or even the BSI/BSM (lights).

For those faults you need to use Lexia diag tool
