I ordered this tool after getting CEL and being locked out of Dynamic, etc.

I cleared the code on my own (scanner not here yet), by disconnecting my battery, cleaning the terminals and reattaching after five minutes. I found this info on the forum from my car before I even got home. I was so pissed that I needed info ASAP.

Thanks for posting the exact model. It's comforting to see 4C listed as a supported vehicle.

Are you pleased with your Foxwell scanner Philster?

I also have the same Foxwell reader....works great for me too. It is car specific so when you get it make sure it is the one for the 4C. You can add additional cars for about $60 each up to around 6 total cars. I added my Ford van and sooner or later will add my wife's GMC Acadia Denali. I also have Torque Pro on my Android cell phone and with an inexpensive Blue Tooth OBDII reader you can do a lot also....I used it to clear a code once before I had the Foxwell. But the Foxwell has a lot of ALFA 4C specific things it can read.

I cannot seem to find the Foxwell NT510 for Alfa Romeo on Amazon anymore. There is one with description for BMW, or a 301 model that is “universal”, and a few versions of NT630 Plus (that look different from oneanother for some reason), but I’m not sure if any of these will address our car as well as the one mentioned in this thread.

My Innova one reads the codes, and erased two of the three codes but will not clear the last one. Disconnecting the battery only resulted in losing the radio stations - no joy on the code on my ability to clear that last one (they were all the same code, too!).

Going to try myOBDLink but not expecting much from that...

Input welcome.

Thanks.

OBDLiink shows me way more detail - I hadn’t delved into this tool before, but it’s really cool.

However, it tells me that the one code which will not be erased is “permanent”.
Not sure what that means to me, but it appears that I’ve turned the MIL off for now. We’ll see what happens. The bigger hope is that the codes don’t come back (highly likely they will).

Meanwhile, I suspect I will have to get the dealership to clear the one code.

An interesting thread, and prompted by tibby’s post and that I have an ELM327 Wi-fi dongle I download free versions of Multiecuscan for my iPhone and Windows 10 laptop. The iPhone version recognises all the ECUs mentioned above by tibby and scans engine and transmission ECUs for trouble codes, though a £50 payment is required for the paid-for version which unlocks the ability to reset the codes or make config changes - I don’t know what’s available to change, there is a simulation mode available but I didn’t use it. It might interrogate other ECUs but these require different connectors which I didn’t have to hand.
The Windows trial version is a bit more of a faff to use, connect to the dongle’s Wi-fi and then select which ECU to connect to. Again, it recognises many/all of the ECUs but functionality is limited to viewing the ECU serial number and such like. It’s not possible to read or reset codes without buying the £50 (I think) version.
On a positive note, it connects easily enough to the ELM327 Wi-fi dongle and appears to recognise many or perhaps all of the ECUs.
Don’t forget to select your dongle type in the app settings before trying to connect.

Tibby, have you purchased the full version and does it recognise all ECUs and read and reset the error codes?
Cheers
