Afternoon all, I got a cheap OBD reader from eBay and plugged it in, as soon as I plug it in I get code 68 on dash as well as power steering and traction control lights with service light.

the moment I unplug it and restart engine it’s all back to normal?

weird one but not sure whether it’s the reader of it’s because my battery is too poor to handle the extra power load.

Any thoughts?

Try another fault code reader and see if it still happens.

However, Code 68 relates to a power steering fault. As your car runs electronic power steering, a week car battery is a common culprit.

I take it the alternator is charging the battery?
