Federico Pereyra Lucena: Im going for scan tomorrow because of that airbag light, i hope is nothing and it can be fixed easily.

Carlos Speroni: donde enchufo Obd2 Elm327 palio Bluetooth fiat palio td 

Kevin Ayres: Iv a alfa romeo 147 2003 with the same issue would the same method work?

Mitch Warburton: Thank you so much! This worked!! 

PercyLongProng1: Hi, I have the same airbag intermittent fault on my 04 punto sporting (1.4 16v) I have the software, just waiting for delivery of the vagcom cable and the red adaptor. Do you know if I can connect by choosing the Punto 03 1.4 16v option on the software, as there isn't an 04 choice.

Heshan Ekanayake: How can I find this software? I have the same punto you have and same problem 

Francisco Santos: Hello my name is francisco I live in Sintra Portugal Can you help me, I bought the KKL cable / with. to turn in my car fiat doblo 2006 but I can not connect to fiatecuscan program. ja sa istalei drives the cable but the cable priate care and realize at the end of the test to take the test cable, announces that the time has expired. Do I need another adapter cable. my email is franciscosantos54@gmail.com appreciate your help best regards Francisco Santos

Simon Loveridge: How do I find out what airbag is in my 2000 punto thank u

jasbir grewal: i have bought kkl vag leads and connected everthing up but in the bottom left hand side it is saying that it is not connected

Keld Hansen: I have experienced problems with connecting an ELM327 OBDII to USB interface, to my 1999 FIAT Punto 1,2 8V, even if the computer COM port is configured correctly and this is verified by the interface test in the Multiecuscan software. It appears that the ELM 327 interface simply doesn´t connect to the cars interface. Can anyone help me ? Is my car not compatible with OBDII or does the cars interface only run 9600 bps ? Any other idea ? Thanks in advance

Chris D: Can u do vedios on how to change shocks both rear and front please. 

Neil Skelding: Hi mate my air bag light is on it a fiat punto 1.2 03 plate. What leads are best to get for ecu? Thanks

henriettagib: Nwould this work on the grande punto 

Voughne2: I bought cable from ebay, with a switch on it so you dont need adaptor but it is not working. I am stuck on connecting to ECU (in video 2:00) . MES is detecting KKL VAG cable, when i click on test in settings it works without errors, it just cant connect to ECU, airbaig, to nothing ... I have latest CDM driver for cable, settings of COM port is the same as in "How to use" ... any idea what is wrong? (I guess the cable is wrong, maybe 64bit Windows 8 is a problem ?)

Liam McDermott: will this work on the mk1 year 1998?

mmattster: OK, i fixed the problem, i fitted a second hand module with the same part number which put the amber light on when the ignition was switched on, it then flashed and stayed on, so i re connected my laptop which now recognizes the module so i could put the light out JOB DONE total cost for leads and module was £48. I have since taken the old module apart and found a burnt out component on the pcb under the inertia sensor but without a schematic i don't know what the component is.................

mmattster: i forgot to mention that the yellow airbag isolator light on the dash never comes on ever even when i first switch the ignition on.......

ashbeck888: Note: The software does not reset the "01-Control Unit Fault" light for a Punto mk2. Any ideas on how this can be reset ? Thanks in advance.

PuntoHowto: No sorry ELM327 won't connect with the airbag ECU you need the VAG-Com lead either modified or with the red adaptor

PuntoHowto: Hi Donna, the software and cable should work with your model of car but to be sure its best to check the website as there is a comprehensive list of what cars are covered

Voughne2: Well china guy is going to refund me, so I will buy a new cable from link under the video, maybe first I will try to take a look at that china cable what is wrong with it ... I could remove switch and connect it directly to airbag ECU use only according to the scheme on MSU website

PuntoHowto: if the control unit is faulty it will need to be replaced unfortunately, look for an identical unit in scrap yards rather than paying the silly prices that fiat will charge

PuntoHowto: you can try just be aware you can cause damage easily if you get the connections wrong, hope you get it all sorted out

9m2sh: Can this gadget work on the Alfa Romeo 156 2.5 Auto, please?

PuntoHowto: if you can't find the airbag module then you may have a more serious problem that needs professional attention. if you don't have the amber passenger side airbag light, then you don't have a passenger airbag.

PuntoHowto: If its a switched cable then the obvious answer if connecting to the airbag ecu is if the cable is switched correctly? Many of these cables are very cheaply made Ian's quality is poor, you really need to some how confirm that the cable actually works, that's why we suggest a normal cable with adapters

mmattster: Hi i can scan find and connect to the engine with the green pin-out lead But when i connect the red lead and scan it doesnt find any airbag module. So is this the red pin-out lead, the module or somthing else HELP......

PuntoHowto: you can try them all, if you get the wrong one you're likely to see "ISO ERROR' however if its a 1.2 8v its probably the same as the one in the video as its the more basic option. our HGT uses a different module to deal with the curtain and side impact airbags built into the roof and the front seats.

GaffyTube: hi, will this tool allow me to reset the engine management light and the abs light? if so could you let me know by message how to do this process and what cables will i require thanks

THEIRONMAN9: hi, ive got a punto 2004 reg, the airbag light has been extinguished many times but keeps coming back, ive been told its a problem with an isolator switch that needs replacing near the passenger door, does this sound right and if so roughly how much do you think it would cost at a garage to have replaced? cheers

Donna Bergin: hi,will this cable work on a fiat multipla 05 model? Airbag light came on and has not gone off. Unsure what cable to order. Just want to turn off light.

lennonpolo: what's that light flashing @ 2:38? Thanks.

byson88: Hi there, how do i find out what airbag control module is on my car? or can i try each one? its a 2004(54) fiat punto 1.2 8v active, 2 door (if that matters). Thanks

PuntoHowto: have you connected up ECU scan and checked to see what faults are being recorded by the ECU

Andy Southard: Worked a treat, thanks for the video, saved me taking it to the main dealer

plainlazy90: Hi, I own a 2003 MK2 Punto 1.2 Active (5million edition) and the airbag light is always on. I have tried the fix you have in this video (I've got the leads and software etc) but the light still stays on. The error I have comes up as: '09 - Passenger squib circuit | Open circuit | Intermittent/Present | 40' Do you have any ideas on a fix for this error? Many thanks.

PuntoHowto: If you buy the cabled linked in the video description and download MultiECUScan then you can do most things including accessing the engine ECU to find out why your EML is on for ABS you may need a fully paid up and licensed version of the software

PuntoHowto: Hi James, wI use Windows 7 also, can you explain more about the problem you are having? have you tried installing it on a different machine to ensure its not the PC, i seem to think way back when I first installed the lead on my laptop it was essentially plug and play

PuntoHowto: this suggests an actual fault with the airbag or wiring to that airbag on the passenger side, in all seriousness its probably best to let a garage deal with a potentially faulty airbag otherwise it can result in accidental deployment and likely injury

MikeRelvasR8: Does it work on the 188 version?

PuntoHowto: that's the passenger airbag warning light the flashing suggests all is working and the airbag is active.

PuntoHowto: hi thanks for the comment, this was the exact problem I had with my 2004 punto, you need to see our other video which covers how we fixed the fault and what was needed, go to our channel page and look for the video titled "Fiat Punto II Airbag isolation switch fault and its fix"

Adnan Fiaz: Hi I got prob in mine fiat punto 1.2 8v 2001 basically my car is running on two cylinders 2&3. I have changed ciols and ht lead still same prob I been told there is prob in ecu It will cost me fortune, is it anything u can help me to solve this prob via ecuscan as I already got leads thnx

MikeRelvasR8: I asked because this one is different than mine, I thought it was another version but it's just a facelift. Mine has the same problem, the Air-Bag light is on and the mechanic said that the steering wheel with that problem on my car is a time bomb :-S He said the Air-Bag could pop out anytime now. And I have another problem but I think that one cannot be fixed with software: it's the typical Punto power steering problem. I think I have to buy a new power steering motor...

PuntoHowto: the '188' version is the versions featured in the video 1999-2006 (up to 2012 for classic versions)

PuntoHowto: older puntos have a different diagnostic port which is three pin it can be done using similar equipment but I don't have knowledge to tell you what you need or how to go about it

byson88: Also i noticed that when testing the interface that the latency timing was no where near the times it should have been. it says it allows for ~5ms but some of them were out by around 100ms or just timed out completely

Michael Mac: Hi there, can this be used with the ELM327 Bluetooth interface instead of a laptop? Thanks!
