    Just to make sure, it's the scart on the drivers side just under the dash area?

    Hi all, I tried to do this and ended up shorting a couple of fuses so be careful and it reset my central locking which I was lucky to find how to fix .
    The cheapest and best way I did it was to buy an OBDII lead I think for about 15 and this gave me all my codes I needed with the basic software too. A friend bought the bluetooth version which is great with certain apps on android (cough Torque) especially for those who want to view their performance stats and stuff on the go etc.
    There are loads of great free software for these devices as well.

    If you had blown fuses after doing this then you have done it wrong.

    Easy to do if you are unsure and seeking advice in the first place though, just letting people know to be a little bit careful.

    Any right minded person would do sufficient research before just probing in to any old socket...

    That's what she said after i'd been the doctors! Just giving some advice about what happened to me and I've seen people posting problems with the pins etc being messed....

    I wouldn't try it again but if it is a tried and tested method that works everyone is entitled to do it and the post is helpful as most are, I followed the instructions last year and it caused some problems for me.
