The Alfa Mito ECU's/Nodes are all CAN Bus units. The KKL diagnostic cable you have will not work.

You need and ELM or OBDLink diagnostic cable.

A word of personal experience: be wary of the entirely blue KKL cables. I got mine in the mail today, and the USB connector was some bootleg shit, and the contacts were recessed way too much into the phelonic white spacer thing, and one of the pins had broken in the connector. I had to do a transplant and solder in a new USB cable to the OBD side to make it work.

You make a valid point post regarding KKL / ELM / other devices available for use with MES. This is my personal view regarding MES and required hardware.

MES is exceptional value for the money. In addition MES / Yani has taken the time and trouble to provide a list of recommended suppliers of MES and hardware that WILL work and if you have problems will provide support. Yes these recommended suppliers are not the cheapest, neither are they well over priced. What one gets is and all round, good value, hassle free solution which IMHO is crucial when it comes to vehicle diagnostics, especially when altering vehicle configurations and programming.

Salve a tutti, avete riscontrato problemi con cavo kkl su punto GT???
In pratica si collega in ECU ma dopo pochi secondi si disconnette....
