    Default Help with U581 diagnostics....

    i've just bought the u581 diagnostic kit to trouble shoot the traction control light on my vectra as well as parking sensor issue on the pug. Went for this one as it says will do both cars. However, after the scan, it says there are no trouble codes picked up. Even though on the pug i can see in the alert log an alert about the parking sensors and on the vectra the tc light is on!!!

    any ides what i'm doing wrong? Followed instructions:
    plug in
    switch kit on, wait til tells you to switch ignition on
    switch ignition on
    collects data

    but no codes brought up!!!

    any ideas??

    Most will only read engine codes. The Tc and parking sensor issues are not engine faults so I doubt it will read them, they are generated by different control modules.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I've got that code reader also mate and It only reads engine codes as far as I can tell.
