But don't know which system the codes refer to. I assume it must be for my 16v as I keep getting code 43!

The link from the first post is unnavailable?

Anyone has the PDF?

Anyone knows the procedure to do the check without having a diagnosis machine?

I've re-uploaded the file for you, shouldn't get lost again.

There are instructions to manually read the fault codes on bx16v forum

http://www.bx16v.co.uk/phpBB3/viewtopic ... a6fcb8e744

Its worth noting that on many if not all later cars only one side of the diagnostic connector under bonnet is actually connected to anything due to a fault in the wiring!
