Just got myself an '97 MGF VVC, very quickly followed by a pscan for the persistent and annoying SRS light on the dash.

Plugged it in got a whole bunch of unknown codes for the SRS which I cleared, but one won't clear.....1209 Unknown error code.

Anyone experienced the same? Any ideas how to fix it?

Have done all the usual stuff unplugged, cleaned, replugged every connector linked to the SRS system without any success. The SRS light is illuminated constantly.

Thanks in advance!

On viewtopic.php?f=144&t=148081 there is mention of code 120y being a problem with the ecu, which someone had.
I know that when I had a serious error on the ecu in the zs, pscan would not talk to it at all.

We need to reverse engineer the code out of our T4 and then update pscan to understand it.
Give us a few days and it should be done.

Unfortunately my T4 will not connect to an MGF / MPI Mini SRS ECU at all.

It asks for the "grey" cable but then refuses to see that it's actually there.

The same "grey" cable works fine with Landrover software on my wife's Freelander so I don't really understand what's wrong, or how an official dealer would read codes on an MGF.

This may take a longer than I said (a lot longer). I will have to find another way to do this such as another tool or find a working T4 from someone else.

The other thing I have noticed is that often the error codes are related on the first three digits, so 120Y will probably relate to something similar as 1209 because the first three digits are the same.
