This is weird. From perusing the forums, it is obvious that UK Copens indeed have OBD2 functionality. But connecting a code reader to my 2003 Australian Copen gets me nowhere. Nothing happens. I need to know from some of the other Aussie owners whether OBD2 works or not. And if not, why not? They would have to produce a special batch of ECUs with all the OBD code missing. Why would they do that? I have a 2003 Sirion also, and it, too, has a non-functioning OBD connector. Now, my question is, if I obtained an ECU module from someone in the UK, and fitted it to my car, would it then have OBD2? Or would you have to change all the ECU modules, since there is a fair chance that they all talk among themselves, and a foreigner wouldn't be tolerated. I came across a YouTube clip by some guy in the UK, who used a 260 megabyte 1080p video clip just to explain that you can program a new key for your Copen just by shorting out pins 4 and 13 of the OBD connector, inserting your black master key in the ignition, turning it on, turning it off, inserting your new blank key within ten seconds, turning it on and off. And your blank key is programmed. Well, I tried this, and it didn't work. When I tried the new "programmed" key, the engine turned over, but didn't fire. That means it is still blank. I bought the blank keys on Ebay; I assume they are the correct type. Can anybody shed any light on this mystery? Or is it just another aspect of the non-functional OBD2 in Australian Copens?
