this isn't strictly mirco related but i figured one of you guys should know *something*
my brother recently bought a 1999 alfa 156 and after some Mass Air Flow sensor trouble (fixed now) he decided that *I* should figure out how to plug his computer into the car for diagnostic info.
as far as i have found out the obd standard is pretty well established and supports multiple communication protocols. i think the alfa uses OSI standard which requires an ELM232 chip to perform some data conversion and a cable from standard rs232 to j1962.
if anyone has done this sort of thing before (not necessarily for an alfa, i just put that in 'cos EVERYONE loves alfa) please help
