    Do you have the Ross tech? Do a scan and throw it up if you do and we'll have a look.

    What lead did you get? You have to check the power saver mode, latency rate and set the comms port. If you google them three the tutorial should tell you how to check them, it'd be quicker than me waffling.

    Couldn't vouch for the lead. Be careful about the aftermarket radio thing. Read about it on Ross techs website and gendan as they mention it. Have a read about it and pull the fuse for the radio if you are concerned about damaging anything.

    Take it you have the radio security code before you do that.

    As in you don't have the code or it doesn't need one?
