So other night i did few hard braking and abs light is now on and no abs. Wheels do lock up

 

i have link g4 on my 1998 r34 gtt which has usb interface but i think that only replaces the ecu as I still have consult port

 

what I am not sure is if consult os reading and accessing ecu through the old ecu

so i bought consult and tried both consultz and nissan data scan 1 and neighbours can access the ecu or any other ecu as hicas was also removed

 

so i googled ans jumped pin 4 and 8 and still no flashing on abs light indicating what the problem is

 

read the link ecu and had no error and it is locked by tuner so can't access it

 

what are my options here to read abs fault and fix it?

Mechanic will have same tools as me

No. Take it to a mechanic who has a PROPER scan tool. Made by Snap-On, or any of the other $10000+ workshop grade scan tools that will connect to and read from EVERY make and model (with the appropriate licenses, of course).

Consultz and Nissdatascan etc are NOT proper scan tools. They are a valiant effort by talented amateurs.

right but where is the joy of fixing it yourself?

Link ECU replaces the main ecu as it is plug in so my question was does consult port uses the standard ecu to connect to hicas and abs etc / in another word, were you able to only access them throuugh standard ecu even though they were different ecus?

 

has anyone read abs module codes on nissan skyline and if so what software and port have you used

The joy is in getting the problem identified, because you cannot do it yourself unless you have drug money.

All CUs are on the same Consult bus. Access to the others is not mediated by the ECU.

I already told you - there is nothing out there. You need a workshop grade scan tool. This is a large handheld device that comes in a blow-mould case with a bunch of different cables that allows you to hook it up to diag ports on Nissans, Hondas, Toyos, BMWs......get the theme here? Or, you need an actual Nissan Consult tool. Same thing, just limited to Nissan only and more guaranteed to have the correct protocols and lookups for every Nissan.

There is only one diag port on your car. The Consult port.
