Hey guys,

No good deed goes unpunished I guess. I passed HU from my part car to friend and volunteered to install it. While doing that I was lazy (read stupid) enough not to disconnect the battery and disconnected AC module. Well it caused SRS light and working on display ..
Would I be able to read and erase this code with MTE softloader/diagnostic tool? The one that comes with IPD/MTE tool..

thx

No you need a VIDA DICE or your dealer

Actually the answer to this is YES ABSOLUTELY. I did the same dumb thing of powering on the car with the HU removed. When I got my MTE softloader from IPD I did not expect it to be able to. Loading the tune cleared my airbag code! Thank God for that! IPD even claims that the device can do so without changing tunes but I don't know how to do so.

I do not know if reverting to stock tune will bring it back but I suppose it will not.

Then I stand corrected
However, I'm not sure why and how you can!

$307? You can just hit refund and all his money will be returned to him, they don't take the percentage away for a refund

I think he is referring to the $7 it will cost to ship. I don't blame him for offering a partial refund.

Update.

I tried my softloader without luck. It looked like diagnostic was running , but code wasn't displayed on laptop, in fact nothing showed up after test was completed , just empty screen. Clicking "Erase errors" did nothing as well.

So I'm back to square one, waiting for a DICE.

re-writing tunes (open ecu) does the same thing on my sti swap, it'll clear any code when a new tune is placed on. probably re-writes that particular area of memory.
