    op-com

    heard this mentioned alot since ive joined the forum, now ive gathered its some kind of diagnostic software or something, just wondering how much it costs and how do you use it i.e. download to laptop and connect laptop to car somehow, a guide would be great, alyn.

    you can get them on ebay for around £15-£20 roughly, comes with the software all you do is install on a computer (laptop is better fir in the car obviously ) then connect the device to your diagnostic port in the car and the usb to ur laptop and start the software

    also if its a mk4 astra or zaf A the port is under the trim panel beneath your handbrake

    Chances are a member near you might have one, could save you some cash if there is.

    Program/erase immobiliser chips, read/erase fault codes, show live readings from sensors, reset service warnings, test guages etc.
