    Reading codes/pedal test on pre 2001 car?

    Is it possible to read codes or do the pedal test on a pre 2001 car?

    My wifes Astra has the ABS and TC control light coming on (1999 1.8 Sport)

    It wont do ABS and TC lights though, you need to plug this into a computer to get these errors.

    I thought the Zlet only made the TC light come on

    You know the cars going to have a faulty hub sensor though
