Brilliant, that saves a journey at least & the flywheel code might be something & nothing too
Was just thinking about that, my VCI isn't full chip anyway so would've needed to use yours even if you hadn't found the laptop! Hope it turns up & you can get to the bottom of the issue, you're experiencing the same feeling (should've done this months ago) as I was when our GTi180 decided to throw it's throttle body wobbler.
Between finding all the wires, diagnosing & repairing the VCI, getting the software to play nicely on the 7.57 laptop and finally deciding to use the 7.02 XP machine, a job which should have taken all of an hour at worst ended up dragging on for the best part of 3 days! Needless to say, I'll be keeping closer tabs on where I store my diagnostics kit from now on!
