    Default $0281 error when clearing DTCs - fixed

    Finally I tracked this one down.

    The VPW command for clearing DTC's was incorrectly falling through a switch statement and generating a CAN message. That meant FlashScan was trying to send the "Clear DTCs" command as a CAN message instead of a VPW message. Will be fixed in the next update.

    Before asking for help, please read this.
