I am pre empting trouble and building up tools for DIY,
What would the best and/or cheapest way to read codes?
The new iphone OBC II looks good, but I guess I would need an adapter.
Anyone use this? Thanks.
Have loaded Carsoft 6.5.06 on a Toshiba lappy WinXP and Chinese cable. All functioning nicely. Cleared a few codes and 540iA runs fine except that now idle is high 700-800 rpm. Any thoughts why this would occur?
I used Carsoft on Saturady afternoon. Last night on the way home, behold idle dropped to normal. And has remained at 500rpm this morning. I can only assume Skynet infiltrated BMW's around 13 years ago. We now know any weird happenings are a result of that.
