    Paperclip test on astra x18xe1 (simtec 70) ???

    I saw on the internet instructions for the paperclip test, for simtec 56,5 I think, but I can't find anywhere guide on how to do it on simtec 70.
    Does anyone know where I could find that?

    Information on self display of engine diagnostics for X18XE1 is vague, to say the least. Simtec 70 is set up for EOBD/OBD2 diagnostics but the ECU disables this on X18XE1 for the UK market, it may be different in other markets.

    I've seen references to flash codes for X18XE1 (Simtec 70), similar to Simtec 56.5, but only if pin 6 is present in the diagnostic socket. The process is the same but the code meanings are different. I've also seen reference to "damage" being caused to the ECU by use of paper clip and pin 6.
