Fault codes in ISTA

Hi, I downloaded Rheingold (ISTA) and ran it today to see if there was a fault code about the number of microphones, after I coded Enhanced Bluetooth (using Esys). Surprisingly I saw all the faults in the pictures shown attached.

Strangest thing is it shows them all at 115 miles yet I've only done 71 miles (picked the car up just before lockdown!)

I couldn't see the fault I was looking for, is this because there's a maximum 20 faults recorded?

I didn't clear the faults until I asked you guys what they could mean?

Any help/advice welcome.

If you coded enhanced bluetooth you will have error of not having the other microphone as enhanced bluetooth has.

There is no such things as maximum 20 errors stored, you can read as many as the car has. What does your ecu tree say? Looks like a discommunication with ZGW at some point. What verision of ISTA+ do you have?

Just go ahead and clear the faults

As you can see that particular error is not there though.

OK good, just when it said 20/20 I wondered.

I didn't pay much attention to the ECU tree, what would I be looking for? What is the ZGW and why would there be a discommunication, is it anything to worry about? Annoyingly it doesn't give a date but why would it give a mileage I haven't even reached (unless it's actually in Km?)?

Looks like version 4.10.15.15600 if that makes sense?

4.10 is dated for your new car , current version is 4.22 so it might not diplay the codes for your car. On tree you should see if some ECU is having trouble communicating, but its most likely due to older ISTA version. Clear the faults and read again.

OK thanks, can I update the version or else where can I get the updated version?
I'll try again and look at the ECU Tree then clear the faults and see what happens.

OK so I had another go and paid attention to the ECU tree this time...they were all red. So ISTA is seeing the car and filling in the vehicle details, reads the ECU's present but is unable to communicate with any of them. This is probably causing the Fault Codes (?). ISTA displays all these fault codes as shown in the post above but it won't clear them.
When I try to clear them it shows the dialogue attached telling me to turn off the ignition and remove the key but then after that it just sits there. Does nothing and the only option is Cancel, after which the Fault Codes remain.
So assuming this is all related to the version of ISTA????
If so does anyone have links to a more recent version please?

Thanks, but I have it now and it is working correctly now. All those faults from before are gone so it must have been the version. I have a few other faults. Strangest thing though, the thing about the mileage. it still shows faults at mileages I've not reached so I think that the "mileage" is actually in Kilometres. Would that be correct?
