Hi all!

Could someone please tell me how to work this Digitek thing? There is a cable in there with 2 connectors - 1 goes to the diagnostic terminal (under seat towards rear of bike). Where does the other one connect to? Please advise.

What year is your GTS300? Is there nothing in the manual for the tool as to where the plug is? Strange! If'it's 32bit ecu model then it should plug in to the diagnostic plug under the seat on the exhaust side of the bike. But check with your dealer first where your particular plug is.

I have a 2012 GTS 300. The lead cable from the scanner separates into 2 plugs. One of them I plugged into the port that you suggested. But there is another connector that I can't seem to figure out.

My issue is that the tool is just not showing anything on the display. I turned the bike on and started the ignition. Still nothing on the display

Are you connecting that Red cable to the positive cable on the battery?

Nope, I was only connecting to the diagnostic port on the Vespa (see picture). Is this the correct setup (second picture)? Do I connect the leads to the battery terminals, or positive to battery and negative to the metal ground?

And how is the unit supposed to get 12v power?

The user manual shown in your photo must provide connection details? If it would help, maybe scan or photograph the relevant page(s) of that manual and we can help interpret the details?

And remember, this will only read generic EBDII codes. It will not read Piaggio's proprietary codes.

there's an old thread on the equipment http://modernvespa.com/forum/topic144701

Possibly the user who posted it could help you: mizzotch

The battery clips attached properly to the battery (connect red clamp first, then black) provide power to scanner as in your 2nd pic.
This older post regarding a DYI scanner may be useful
