Dealextreme has it on stock too I guess.

I bought mine from ebay for $49 while it was on sale(now its $69) from a US seller because I needed it quickly and didn't want to wait for shipping.
Could you give the ebay seller you bought from, please?

okay, i had some time to finally upload some screen shots. Here you go.

1 - ZCS/FA coding - Options that my car has.
2 - program/all software functions available and errors
3 - different day with more errors
4 - DME erro details
5 - SRS (i triggered the airbag light and forgot which option(s) triggered it! under the OPTIONS colum) Maybe someone can look at see which one they have checked or not checked?

6 - SRS (this is the main error that it keeps giving me)

2E [046]Seat-Backrest locking, Driver The other one has been cleared already.

You PM'd me and the system will not allow me to PM you back!

NO... Do not take it apart! The newer versions have the modification already done... So they say... Mine worked fine.


And to answer your PM... I don't recall if I received the CD.... But I did download the software from their site so it doesn't matter anyway!

I just bought one for $36 free shipping by simply using GOOGLE SEARCH. It is not rocket science.

Couldn't wait for xcar360 huh?


Yes it works in virtual environment on a mac.
I am running it on xp 32 bit on parallels.
Couldn't get it working on 64 bit windows 7, well didn't try much lets say.

But yes it does work on virtual environment, Once you have XP running, you just install the drivers and software with the steps given in this thread, just like you do in a PC.

Just to clarify this for the 33rd time, the only cable that works with PA Soft is the one you have to order from xcar 360 or some of the other vendors. It's the one with the black box on the end.

Sorry if I pissed anyone off, but if you read at least one page into the thread it's answered...multiple times. Reading is fundamental!
