A colleague of mine bought a code-reader from E-bay. OB2D compliant. It is not a basic one. He paid $150 after shopping around. I have lost the actual brand/model numbers. It looks a lot like a graphing calculator with 4 control buttons. The plug fitted on to my socket near the driver's door.
When it was connected to my 1998 Peugeut 406 V6 - D8 it went through 60% of the connection process and then indicated a "Link Failed" report.
When it was connected to his 2005 BMW M5 fwd it read everything without problem. (not that his car had any problems!)
I have had a two dash lights on concurrently for a little while now. They are the red "brake" light and the yellow "ABS" light. Actually the brakes work perfectly. I was hoping to get a diagnosis. It's not happening withmy car.
Can anyone explain what the problem might be?*
