Have seen sporadic posts on diagnostic code readers BUT what models compatible with diffrent years & models Pics

It would be good if pic owners could post what model code reader they have (where purchased if possible) & the model Picasso they have used it on.

I ask this question because from what I understand there appears to be a problem with getting a code reader to work with the model 30 (03 reg cars)
I would like to purchase one at reasonable cost Knowing it is going to work with my model 30 hdi.

I can start the ball rolling by informing you that the cheap Rac one that Argos sells does NOT work with 03 HDI

I bought a "V1.3 Auto scanner OBDII EOBD Auto Code reader OBD2" from 3goshopping08" on eBay.
It's based on ELM327 v1.3a.
It connects to a Picasso Xsara 2004 1.6Hdi using ISO14230-4 KWP(fast, 10.4).
But the software is not good:
ScanTool.net is not true Windows and gives "Interface not found"
ScanMaster.ELM is a demo version and so does not give the last digit of the fault codes but seems the best.
EasyOBDII v2.2.0 is a demo version but does give the whole fault code.
OBD2Spy 2.05 is a demo version.
OBD2Crazy v1.5.0 is a demo version and didn't work.
It was also a big nuisance to get a spare PC, big monitor, etc. down stairs, into the garden and build a hide to see the screen on a bright sunny day.

I think its fair to warn that these Code Readers aren't 'Magic Boxes' and resetting warning lights doesn't actually fix the problem, a warning light is usually set off for a reason and this type of tool only goes some way to identifying the fault by giving the user a code, you then have to find out what the code is for and then investigate further the cause. :huh:

I fear some people may simply reset and carry on which could cause much more problems. :(

We need to point out the following: If you do not know what you are doing then leave it to someone who does! :rolleyes:

Does anybody know whether ScanTool (www.scantool.net) would work provided I build my own ELM327 based (USB) interface?

Has anyone used one of the bluetooth ODB2 readers that are listed on eBay on a 2002 HDi? I want to buy one, but I've heard that they don't all work with the earlier HDis. What sort of ODB2 device do I need?

Thanks

Al

Hi. I use a free program called torx in conjunction with a Bluetooth adapter for the diagnostic socket (£10ish) and my Smartphone, it works well, reads codes and can reset the management light and much more.

I believe you need obd2 compliant cars for it to work which I think is 2000 onwards for petrol’s and 2004 onwards for diesels.

The great thing about this program is once it has read the code the phone then connects to the internet and gives an explanation of the code along with possible fixes.

I have one of these and cannot get it to work with an 03 HDi (built Sept 03). The tool works fine on an 04 Honda Accord so it seems to be that Citroen have not fully implemented the interface on 03 cars. May be something to do with the multiplex wiring, which was updated on this model if it works on 02 variants. Diesels only had to comply from 04 onwards.

Hello,
Could anyone help with a recommendation of a reasonably priced code reader that will work on my 2005 Xsara Picasso (2.0 16V), 

I contacted Clarke via email about the Clarke CEOBDPRO EOBD/OBD II Engine Fault Code Reader & they said it will work on my car as it works on all cars after 1996 !! I wasn't convinced as many claim that. So has anyone had experience of this one ?

There's fairly inexpensive ones on Ebay that claim to be suitable, has anyone tried one of these ? (Or one of the many other inexpensive ones on Ebay?)
http://www.ebay.co.u...r-/221709468938


I don't know if this'll help anyone but I checked out my Diagnostic OBD2 Port on my Picasso (with my flexi camera/bore-scope) & made a note of which of the terminals were present... Maybe this may be of use to someone ?
Connectors:
Black half:     #1-YES   #2-NO      #3-NO       #4-YES      #5-YES     #6-NO      #7-YES     #6-NO
Green half:   #9-NO    #10-NO    #11-YES    #12-YES    #13-NO    #14-NO    #15-YES   #16-YES

I bought a U480 off ebay last year for my 56 plate HDi.

It seems to read and reset the codes OK. Like this one here:
