    It seems expensive, but you can actually change things with this, not just read things.

    It gives you the option of clearing any fault codes that may appear, along with the following as a few quick examples:
    • Activate DRLs for either front, or front and rear
    • Change auto-close settings for windows
    • Activate alarm bleeps for open and/or close
    • Make necessary changes for upgrades, eg when fitting sat-nav or footwell lighting
    • Activate the emergency brake flash (when you brake hard, the hazard lights turn on)
    and absolutely loads of other options to play with.
    I actually have a brand new one of these (Rosstech Micro-Can interface and licensed software) for sale

    pm me if you are interested

    It's the third brake light isn't it?

    Has anyone actually seen this yet? I did a test on it with my missus but nothing happened. I can only assume it works when the ABS kicks in as it could easily just use the ABS signal to activate it.
