      nope, it's not one of those... i don't know if it's 1598A or 1598/14 or 1598/3... so on and so on

      supposedly, it's a tool that was used to set the timing on corrados... properly.

      eyeballs and a timing light? its just a matter of lining things up and then following the procedures in the bentley

      Try here then... every variant of the 1598 test box and various plugs. Basically plugs in in place of the ecu and used to test various functions of the efi system, abs, etc.

      the ecu can do that itself though. it plugs into the various parts and runs the software you want.

      I thought about building a set of diagnostic chips. each one would force a sensor to behave nominal to determine the failure.

      I have an ecu here that has bad ram or blown dac portion where the ecu thinks the blue cts is always cold. I just coded the ecu to say its always 195F which makes cold starts suck ballz but runs fine otherwise for its purpose.

      Theory was that if you put the chip in and the car acted no different you could rule out that sensor.

      i wanted to make an ecu that held all of the modules but i think that if one person had jacked up wiring they would torch that ecu and then $$ would be lost as ecu's are no longer $50 on ebay/classifieds any more. those were the days.

      I know it's an old post but to update on the price $3370.64 and it's out of stock from my source.


      Ignition and injection systems like multi-point injection and Bosch Motronic with miniature contacts (diameter approx. 1.3 mm) can no longer be checked with conventional testers. The following has to be considered:
      - The contacts in the connectors can become damaged.
      - It is difficult to get at connectors and the numbering on the inside is difficult to read.
      - The time spent fault finding on increasingly complex systems must not get out of proportion.
      - For positive fault identification, components such as the Hall sender and knock sensors must be checked dynamically.
      The test box V.A.G 1598A fulfills the demands for a modern and workshop orientated appliance. It can be used with current fault finding systems. The plug sockets on the test box are designed to accommodate the multi-pin connectors of the ignition and injection systems
      All future fault finding programs will be developed and current systems will be gradually converted for use with the test box.

      Design and features

      Test box with impact resistant plastic casing, resistant to fuel and oil.
      Precision CuZn stamped contacts, 0.8 µm range. The rest are gold plated.
