    Ok, I guess that's the problem. I'm still trying to figure out how to use this and wish there was better documentation. I've found it to be lacking for the WiFi version. It seems like everything pushes back to windows (registration and adding the VIN for example). I'll keep trying to figure out how to do things with this. Thanks for jumping in.

    If in doubt, start with an Auto-Scan.
    This will give you a list of everything that responds so you know what's fitted to the car.

    If you save the scan it's also a reference for your current coding values, should you change anything incorrectly and need to change it back.
    Apparently I should put something witty or profound in here.....

    Thanks for that! I've done an auto-scan but I had no idea what it meant. I'll save that. Really appreciate the help.

    ALWAYS, ALWAYS, Always, always do a full autoscan before anything else.

    After you fiddle with something, or screw it up, or lose the ABS coding etc... you have something to refer to.

    Doing an autoscan before just removing the instrument cluster can be a lifesaver in some cars.

    I then email them to my online mail account, and usually post them on here somewhere too - in case it helps someone out one day.
