    ok, so i understand that a genric lead isnt going to be any cop, but im getting responce from certain modules and can access faults
    but them others stating no response from controller

    depending on what im doing i get seprate errors, or like i say it works

    compatibility test, states this althou i can get in to modules like the instrumentation and alarm system

    the port test is fine low latency but its a cheap cable so expected

    Klima does that for some reason, seems to be a fairly difficult module to talk to.

    You can adjust the latency by tweaking the settings in the system control panel for the USB serial driver, it defaults to 16ms, dropping it to 2ms or 4ms will improve things.

    The cable clearly works as you can talk to the instruments. ABS issue is probably because your ABS ECU is broken, i'm sure i've said this before to you, if you've got three beeps and a big (!) as soon as you power the ignition on the ABS ECU is faulty, and you wont be able to communicate with it.

    The engine is odd, could be a broken wire somewhere, or someones been hacking with the immobiliser wiring. You'll have to trace the wiring, i'd be looking behind the clocks for anything unusual patched in.
