I was hoping someone could recommend me a good Diagnostic tool for my Focus mk2 1.8 petrol.

Have something to contribute?

First I tried this:

 

http://www.ebay.co.u...-/220905726641?

 

But it did not read fault codes from the abs etc..

 

 

 

Then I bought this type to use with the laptop:

It reads the abs fault codes.

I have a generic bluetooth adapter, which reads the codes with Torque Pro, I also have the FSuper and the modified ELM cable.

there is a thread here on how to do it, however one of the chaps on the board made it up for me, and I just paid him for parts and labour.

 

If you are handy with a soldering iron, give it a go, look at the Focus Guides section for modified ELM 327 cable and program.

I'm absolutely rubbish at anything like this to be honest mate. Could you let me know who done yours and how much it all was.

Cheers

If you pop over to that thread, and just ask if someone would be able to help you, otherwise in the buy and sell section, there was a chap who was selling some of these so you may see one there.

 

Rather than give you their details, I would rather contact them and provide them this link so that if they are able to assist you they may do so.
