    306 ECU info

    Was wondering if anyone can help me with the type of ECU the 6 has... is it a Bosch?

    Also, does an ECU reset entail disconnecting the battery for a while, and running the car at idle for a specified time?

    I believe it has a Magneti-Marelli 1AP10 ECU. I haven't seen any official Peugeot spec-sheets confirming this, though.

    wouldn't have the first clue! I would guess something like that would do it.

    Talking about ECUs, there is an ODBII connector on the fuse panel that's underneath the steering column. Apparently you can get a bit of diagnostic info from them, with the appropriate cable. (I saw Matthew Moyle-Croft's post on the 206 GTi board about them, and decided to take a peek under the 306 to see if it had one as well..)

    Thanks guys!

    ooh Magneti Marelli, sounds swish

    Hmm that OBDII cable Rek, do you reckon it's a matter of getting an appropriate cable and software for the notebook?

    Would be interesting to check what goes on.

    not sure. the scan tools that connect to a PDA cost US$200-300. Maybe with the added power of a laptop PC, some of the signals could be processed in software instead.

    This link gives some insight into the idea..
    really long and annoying URL
