    Help! Loads of error codes

    Came out to the car to go to shops and decided to check fuel trims

    Plugged the i930 in and all of a sudden all of the error codes under the sun popped up

    The car won't start, keeps telling me loads of codes are valid and I can hear a really weird almost gurgling noise from under the bonnet on the passengers side

    The csr eventually did start, but won't go into gear

    Have I duffed the battery somehow by plugging the i930!?

    Doubt it. Sounds like a flat battery.

    Yeah just weird that the car was running fine, plugged the obd in and then all of the warnings came up one after one on the dash!!

    Maybe shorted it temporarily?

    Its fine now and got to the shops and back with no issues!

    Dont forget that icarsoft has no power supply of its own, this could mean that when you connected it. You used the last of the available spare voltage.

    This then mean that you would start throwing up lots of codes.

    Which would suggest the battery is on last legs?

    I'm sure that I looked at the battery stats on the i930 and it was at full voltage though

    Weird, went out again, car was on this time, no problems

    Plugged the obd in, it stayed on for about a minute then powered off and loads of error codes came up on the dash agaon!!!

    Battery must be on its last legs if just powering the obd stresses it or am I doing something wrong!?

    Try it when the car is running, but on mine i can keep on working on the car for around half an hour.

    So I would suspect your battery

    Well got battery tested and it was only outputting about 60pc of the power

    So hopefully that was my problem!

    Bought new battery from the shop and will change over later

    Take it for the s type its as simple as negative off, positive off and refit new one the other way round?

    If I want my fuel trims to reset, this will mean that will happen too?

    Charge the new battery before you put it. Make sure you have the radio code. Don't know about the fuel trims but why do you want them to reset?

    Just so that since I have fixed my air intake hose now then I will get an accurate fuel trim reading so I know what the car is doing with fuel air ratio?
