I'm a bit stuck with this one, although not in the usual way!
Customer complaint was that the ABS MIL had been on a couple of times but it was off when I had it in and the ABS does kick in. So, I thought, plug in my KTS an see what DTC's are logged. BUT no communication with anything, anything at all.It has a normal 16 pin OBD socket but it appears to be wired up in a strange way (which the KTS is supposed to be able to sort out for itself!) and the only wiring diagram I have is AutoData which is about as much use as they normally are.
The socket has earth to pins 4 & 5 with a permanent + on pin 16, which is all fine and normal and the KTS unit powers up but the only other pins wired up are 7, 8 & 9. That pin 9 especially puzzles me. It's a blue wire and as well as being pinned into to the OBD socket it is spurred off to a loose 10 pin socket nearby but that spur is the only pin in that socket.
I do have an OBD break-out box but does anyone have any ideas what pin does what, with what module?
I hope I've explained it all correctly!

KTS has the pin numbers on the screen if you select it, its on the screen for model selection. Hope that helps.

you will need the K-line and L-line

K is normally on pin7

L is normally on pin 15 but mitsu put it to pin 1

pin 9 is just above pin 1 so it may have been removed and put in just above.

i have always been able to get full comms pinning out, hopefully its just your L-line missing for diag for all systems

good luck

Thank you both, I'll get it back and try those suggestions. I should have tried the wiring diagrams on KTS but I was running out of time and, generally, the 540 box sorts out any differences in pin layouts itself. I haven't had to use the breakout box for ages!
But what still puzzles me is why that blue wire to pin 9 also goes to a nearby 10 pin socket but with only that one pin fitted (it is a male pin by the way). I suspect that isn't factory fitted but I have no idea what it's for or why it was done. The wiring splice is taped up, not a factory look if you see what I mean.
