Thank's for the reply Kink, seems that's the long & short of things, heard the same from a few now regarding the V2 OBD kits not reading things right, so seems I am stuck with the bridge method

Is this what you need?
TBH I have no clue Dr broom, hence the ask, but looks like it.
Do you by chance know if it's just the 5 pin part the diagnostic needs to read? or the 2 pin as well?? I ask as I know you have to bridge the 2 pin one for the engine (flash readout hack)
Thank you so much for taking the time
I really do hope someone can assist me as I am having problems locating what I need.
So not a single garage near me has the socket for their diagnostic scanner to plug in to my 98 aerodeck, it's the standard 5 + 2 pin one you find under the glovebox show in the included photo.
So my plan was to buy the correct one for my local mechanic, he has the below 2 diagnostic scanners, I would ideally like to get it for the Autel -
Autel Maxiflash VCMI
Alternatively he also has this one -
Angry Jester Jesdigit
Any help really would be greatly appreciated.
You guys rock! thanks so much, I try my best but I know my limitations, sadly mechanics & electrics fall far from the areas I excell in, now I know what to look for I've picked up a copy of the Haynes manual thanks, noted they are not what they used to be, but then nothings made like it used to be thats why we're all driving 90's Hondas init guys =)
Need to get it fixed, been running it 3 years like this & never forgot, then did it again today so twice in a week, what are the odds, then had a break pipe sprink a leak tonight, I hate these days! will get the brake pipe sorted tomorrow & see if I can't get this light buzzer under wraps asap, then just one rear arch to get some welding done & she should be back to speed.
Thanks for your help as ever Broon =)
Yes the interior light comes on when the door is opened just not the buzzer, this sure take me a step closer to tracking the fault & I really appreciate the images you sent over for me.
On a side note - been looking for a Haynes manual for years for these & never seen one, I had thought they never actually issued one for these, but I will now keep hunting, thanks so much
So did the unthinkable today & came back to a dead car, the as I like to call it idiot switch is not working on my MB3 Deck, you know the sound that goes off when you open the door with the lights still on.
I presume it's a relay somwhere as fuses are fine, but have now asked my honda guy & also the guy I get my honda parts from & also my local garage & none of them know & none have ever heard to one having this problem before, I'm not very mechanically minded myself TBH, I do what I can but I'm far from a natural, so was hoping someone here may know what I am looking for to rectify this issue ??
Turned a nice day in to a right mare it did, stranded at the a*s end of nowhere for a while, knew it was coming at some point though, procratination & all that, so time I get this sorted before I do the b****r again.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks for all the kind words guys, you are a caring bunch on here which is a refreshing change =)
Well plans scuppered for another day, the pipe from the power steering top up tank just sprung a leak yesterday, so the funds have been diverted to that 1st, also a bush at the back needs replacing, can't grumble the good old girl never lets me down mechanically & luckily I also have the 1.5 aerodeck as an emergency back up.
I had been suggested I replace the dizzy, but had a sneaking suspicion it was not that, so the O2 sensor will get done 1st,if the problem persists it'll be the dizy thats next on the cards.
Not got the engine management light coming on when I get the problem BTW.
Bloody hell a heart attack just last week,I hope you are taking it easy Dave.
I'd not want a new car myself TBH Gel, I would not change the VTI for anything even if I had money to throw at vehicles endlessly, if that were the case I'd get this on stripped to the bear bones & rebuilt from scratch, well maybe with the addition of a P30 & a little toying with the power lol, but I have a bike if I feel like going a little crazy, not that I do that often now I'm getting on a bit.
Will get this bush & power steering pipe sorted & then the o2 sensor will be getting sorted.
I'll report back when done to confirm if it's sorted the issue.
Hello guys, I have to make a huge & sincere apology, I have not been back on to respond to the topic due to some serious health issues that had me thinking about other things than cars for several month, very very sorry about not getting back sooner, as I always reply to my posts on any forum, I hope you can forgive my tardiness.
I really do appreciate the input & will be looking at getting a replacement O2 sensor sorted asap, as the standing water bit sounds like the same issue dr broon fingers crossed that'll sort the old girl out, just had all the underside welded & reinforced, so she should keep on going for a good few more years =)
Hello all, I hope someone can help me.
Have had this ongoing intermittent problem for over a year & it's getting worse / more frequent, I have had several mechanics have a look & no one has been able to lock down exactly what the issue is as it could be so many things,but hoping someone else on here may do.
Usually it starts spluttering loosing power mid revs but has done in all rev ranges over time, now I get most times when I re fill the tank (but not always) which makes me think it's a fuel issue (injectors partially blocked etc) but have been told it could well be the distributor.
It tends to go if you change gear & sometimes also clears when you give it some welly, but not always, tends to only last a few miles & then drives normal, but it's been becoming very frequent to the point of most times it's driven, so i really want to tackle the issue before it leaves me stranded.
Lambda has been checked, not prefect put working within acceptable tolerances
O2 sensor was checked & seemed to be working fine
HT leads been out one by one at night on the engine to check for one arching
New fuel filter fitted.
Iridium spark plugs fitted
I just don't want to spend a fortune on this that & the other in the elimination process if I can help it as I am on quite a low budget being no longer capable of work due to injuries from an RTA, but I love this car & want to keep it in good order mechanical.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Standard replacement springs for aerodeck?
in SOS! Help!!
So I have been trying to find a full set of replacement shocker springs for my 1.5 deck & seem to be coming up short finding a full set at a fair price & hope some of you may have already been there/done that & can point me in the right direction?.
i just need standard springs/can't go with lowering springs due to where I am located.
I did look at the MG ZS route but had no more luck finding those than I did standard ones.
I'd greatly appreciate any help any of you could offer.
I've found a few sets of lowering springs (set of 4) starting from 100 quid to my door, was sort of hoping I could find standards around the same figure.
