SSM code reader for 98 WRX


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, still trying to get access to my error codes on my 1998 WRX. I understand this is the change over year for the code system, tried all sorts of scanners including an older full on workshop scanner. No go.

I downloaded the freessm program to try but need recommendations for cable, my car has the OBD2 plug but doesn't appear to use that code.

So recommendations for cable to access the system?


Cheers Dave

I used a KKL 409.1 VAG-COM Cable successfully with FreeSSM and my '05 Legacy.


Been ages, but I remember trying to get the drivers working was a gigantic f***-around.


I'd probably skip the scanner and work out how to get the dash diagnostic codes to read properly.

Thanks mate, yea read the code and found it was icv, checked and cleaned that and couldn't find any issues. Just wanted the scanner to see if there were any other issues. The freessm software looks good so wanted to have a play.....


Cheers for the reply.

      Afternoon team,
      im new to the group first time posting. Im hoping some body can help me get my launch control all dialled in on my link g4x. Ive had the computer and car all tuned from chris at prestige awesome knowlegable guy super happy with the results but now im wanting to get my launch/anti lag all dialled in. Ive been reading multiple different forums etc all with different conflicking information which has made me nervious with what do i listen to this or that if you get what i mean. Now ive started to make myself familiar with my PClink software etc the past few weeks and im eager to learn how to do minor setups or tweaks etc so im not relieing on my tuner so much and obviously saving myself abit hurt in the back pocket. 
      Now back to the question at hand.... Im wondering if theres and one who could please share there knowledge and wisdom with setting all my values, timing, fuel etc when i have launch control armed and engaged, or even a launch tune file they can possibly send me to load onto my tune. Ive figured out the setup of my digital inputs turning launch control on etc and its obvisously on its pre set factory settings. It engages but doesnt sound the greatest or as angry as it should i feel. Hence reaching out to you good buggers. 
      Cheers in advance for any info and help yous maybe able to give me.
      Cheers Shaun
