Their have been a few web threads regarding the use of OBD-II scanners on a Ferrari 360.

Has anyone tried to pull Engine Check Codes with a scanner (Actron, Equus,....)?

If yes, do the Ferrari Error Code Maps match up, or are there proprietary codes?

I know the OBD-II regulations. Can't say that I know for sure how they apply to your car. The regulation sepcifies a standardized 16-pin connector that must be easily visible to a "crouching technician" and that it must be located within three feet of the driver. In your car there is probably no place that isn't within three feet of the driver, but it would typically be under the dash somewhere.

There are three different communication protocols allowed, and not all scan tools are compatible with all three. Almost all European cars use the ISO 9141 protocol, so you probably need a scan tool that is compatible with it.

The regulation speicifies standardized Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) for emissions related problems. Most of these codes start with the letter "P" (for Powertrain)and are the same for any OBD-II compliant vehicle. For instance, P0122 is Throttle Position Sensor - Low Voltage. The manufacturer can also have proprietary codes for problems not specified in the regulation, and for non-emissions related problems, or sub-codes for more specific problems.

So, the odds are good that you can pull DTCs and interpret them using an ISO 9141 compatible scan tool. As with any car, it's mighty handy to have a Service Manual available. It's always the first accessory I buy for any car that I own.

I use a standard OBD2 code reader on the Stradale and it works fine. You can't get into the different systems like you could with an SD2, but for pulling codes it will work fine.

silly question---> my 2001 Modena CEL went on after driving a short distance. I turned the knob (off and on) in the trunk and CEL disappeared. Can the technician retrieve whatever code went off that day? Are these codes permanently recorded e.g. smog violation, etc...

More than likely you cleared the codes and they are not retrievable.
