Thought it would be handy to be able to run diagnostics on the engine after long trips, etc. There is a package available on EBAY. What are people's thoughts:

Andrew, search the forum for the diagnostic software. There is a link to a free version you can download. Then just buy the cable from you etec dealer.

Just search for the link, and it has been deleated..

his ebay user name is the same as a guy we had a problem with on this site so I had to remove him. I received a bunch of pm's from people stating the site it sent you to was full of problems. when I tried to talk to him about it he was mad at me because people were not running with any protection on there PC's. After a few go arounds he had to go.

Ok well this arrived a few days ago. It came with two disks, the main install disk and a disk for the update. The install was a snap the only unfortunate thing is the upgrade disk was completely blank. A quick email to the sender and he is sending me out a new one. He apologized for the mistake and said he would send the update out right away.

While I am waiting for the update I tried the cable and original software on my 2012 90hp E-TEC and it works as advertised. No issues.

Hope this helps. I will give an updat when I get the new software version disk and have installed it.

Seemed to work fine without the update. Maybe it might effect something I wasn't looking for but really I just want the information to keep an eye on how she's running and performing. Still waiting for the update disk.

You can get the outdated software from BRP for about $50.00 The most updated disc from BRP is about $300.00 and even this is not the most current.
