    Default U380 code readers - question?

    Hi folks as title says i bought one of these from ebay as i thought it was cheep enough and value for money to clear fault codes. Every time i plug it in i get 'linking error' have tried everything but thats all i get. I've emailed seller to refund but i would prefer to get this working if i can. Does this work with the vectra c 2003 1.8 my understanding is that they work with almost any car after 1996. anybody any input into this one? many thanks lads.

    I think the one that i bought off of ebay is the next one up (u480) and works fine on my 2004 GSi. Plug it in first, then turn the ignition on after about 20 seconds then push enter button, if you done that and still happening then it must be a faulty reader.
    Don't you know anyone with one that you can test as well.

    Don't know anyone with the kind of reader but will take it into work and try couple of the lads cars to see if it indeed the reader itself or something to do with car etc. have tried plugging it in, the the screen comes up with all the various programms so definatley getting a voltage from the car. just always points to the 'linking error'. which is a shame as i'd been looking forward to getting rid of that flashing warning light. ah well will figure something out.
