That same wire your trying to tap into is the same wire as the one on the plug under the drivers side panel near the brake pedal ( i believe its another diagnosis plug for factory use) tap into it there it's the same colour wire much much easier than trying to get your hands down there and less chance of covering your seats in blood. Lol

Ive had two code readers and ended up sending them back as they did not work, a launch CPR129 and the latest one which the company stated would definately work on the generation 2, doesnt. It didnt even pick up my Land Rover Discovery 2 which was in the menu on the reader so thats had to be sent back
Any ideas as i need to clear an Air Bag fault on mine, by the way even the £1500 snap on diagnostic readers wont clear the fault

Snap on are rubbish on Coupes. FTDI cable adaptor to USB and then Cascade emulator and Hyundai Hi-Scan on a laptop work well.
