OBD2 communication problem

Post by Hayden1470 »

Hey guys,

In my GTi I currently have an engine management light on, an airbag light and my Aircon seems to turn itself on and off whenever it wants. I can't scan anything other than abs on the car to find faults as all I get is "link error". When I try to scan I can hear what sounds like the headlight levelers adjusting. I have checked fuses and all seem ok. And have tried unplugging and cleaning up the Aircon control unit and the clocks. Is there anything simple I should check first before going through wiring?

Mot is Thursday and want to get it sorted before then.

What are you using as a scan tool ?

Very unusual to be able to read ABS codes and not the standard OBD codes......
