T4 Diagnostic UK map

#1 Post by Johnny 216GSi » Thu Jul 30, 2020 10:52 pm

This has probably been posted before, but the folks over the on 75 Owner's Club website have compiled and continue to maintain a T4 Testbook map, basically locations in the UK (former dealers, MG Rover support companies, enthusiasts, etc.) that have in their possession a Rover T4 Test Book (electronic diagnostic and engine set-up/calibration tool) should your car need any of the procedures that involve its use.

I know there are several OBD readers and key fob programmers out there - even these days MEMS to USB leads that plug directly into Android phones if your phone supports OTG (and last count at least 3 Android diagnostic apps). Test Book was in addition about set-up and calibration procedures relating to servicing and a broader range of diagnostic procedures that, although based on sensor readings (that other tools will display for you), involved adjustments to the engine and its ancillaries until there was a pass/fail outcome, with a wider diagnosis of misbehaving components.

Just worth bearing in mind in case there's a car out there with a fault that cannot be found. Just ask and find out how far your chosen T4-equipped dealer is prepared to go with the testing and what they can do for you:

Here's the thread on the 75/ZT owner's club website that discusses the map:

https://the75andztclub.co.uk/forum/show ... p?t=287276

I expect it's a matter of identifying who posted the map link on the thread (user "stevestrat" - first post on the thread?) and PM-ing them through the website. Can't imagine you're not a member already... :laughing2

:blink ok


They deleted my message, even after someone thanked it.

Maybe because I mentioned I had the dreaded Pscan as well.

Ah well, their loss.
