hi Mike my engine is the 1.9 diesel the scanner is a PRO SCAN V500 VAG scanner from uk diagnostics, for volkswagen sharan, ford galaxy, abs.air bag, engine obd, obd2. to be honest i haven't tried anything yet i bought the scanner to give me a place to start.
the car has failed to start a couple of times in the past after being left for a few minuets, i thought maybe just flooding, it always started after a little while then run ok. This time the car stopped whilst driving, I checked the oil leve it was on the lower level of the mark, after about 15 minuets and topping oil up the car started, the car stopped again going down the on ramp to to the dual cariageway after leaving for few minuets it started,
Then i drove 2 miles down the road and it would not start untill left for a short while, the car started yesterday morning but not the rest of the day While the car is running the scanner works ok but when the car not running it reads link error on the engine but reads air bag etc ok i think it is a problem with the ecm the car wont start at all this morning. thanks mick
I said car would not start this morning, tried it again with the same result it would not start. I locked car then unlocked it it and it started fine, I tried it 6 more times an d it started ok, the scanner is reading
