But those conditions had been met already, otherwise it would say that all the time and not just for certain part of systems.
Just used it today on a 2004 peugeot 307 1.6HDi, it list the resetting of the airbag, but it says that it cannot communicate with ecuand to make sure the ignition is on and thewiring is ok.Everything is ok but it won't communicate.
I tried to update the system and it wouldn't, so I registered it and tried again, still nothing. I made sure I had a good power supply and internet connection. Still it came up with messages about unable to write to sd card and the sd card was in the machine properly. Please advice
