Customer Question

I have a Zafira `A' 2000 W 1.8 petrol automatic with only 7 sockets wired in the 16 hole diagnostic port. I have so far tried four code readers and none will register. The last of these was a ALBABKC CAN OBD2/EOBD `VAUXHALL' fault code reader. All 4 register on other cars. The fault sign is on together with lumpy idling/stalling. Checked most sensors apart from O2 sensors. ?????

Hi Ian,

Does any of the scan tools power up, or blank screen won't turn on?

Hi Ian,

I somehow knew you would say that.

So the 12v and ground is ok, but the serial data bus is down.

Can you communicate with any module or not?
