Hi C3CAR, if managed to find the data in Lexia. What Im havin problems with now is how to Erase Faults, its not letting me erase them? When at that point it speaks about zones, asks the milage, after that it tellserasing cant be done. Can you tell me how to erase the faults, seems somethin to do with these recorded zones?

Permanent faults won't erase, because the actual fault is still present, for example, if you disconnect the MAF, you get a MAF fault. You can't erase that fault until the MAF is reconnected, which then becomes a Temporary fault which can be erased.

It forces the garage/you to fix the problem that has brought up the fault code.

You seem to need to create a zone for each batch of erasing, this stores information about which garage did the erasing, the fault code and at which mileage. Its just some sort of auditing tool. There is a maximum of 50 zones, but I don't know what happens after you reach the 50 mark.

Thanks C3CAR, I'll have a look at it again, probably all permanent faults I have then. There were faults with two of the injectors, shorts if I remember. Car otherwise seems fine.

Probably glow plug/pre heat relay faults.

If you can attach some screen shots (ALT+PRT Sc, paste into paint), that would be good.
