I hope to be collecting a Pug DIAG2000 in the near future. It's a fair trek for me (up to Brum - unless it can be relayed down) but it means I can swing across and pester.... I mean visit citrojim again. 8)

I'm quite looking forward to embarassing him by parking my Vauxhall Ashtray among his fleet of immaculately serviced xants. :P

great dose it come with the harrness tester and its breakout box, one of my two i bought came on a metal troley the other the troley looks like a plastic or resin, the later of the two has the harrness tester but the first one dose not,

if yours dose come with the harrness tester you wont be able to make use of it unless you have the breakout box with all its cables,

im still waitting for the pug dealer to finnish with there old style breakout box which goes with my DIAG, as the manager told me i can have it then

I believe that on some of those early Xantias the mixture can be adjusted with a Lexia or even some generic diagnostic tools such as the Sykes ACR4.

Hi Malcolm,

I thought I was getting "All the cables..." as advertised but I didn't. Instead, I got a random bunch of boxes and connectors on wires - some are obvious, such as ABS etc but others aren't. I've also got what seems to be multiples of the same probe sets although the part numbers aren't necessarily the same. I'm thinking of selling some off so I can recoup some of the cost if I can get myself organised.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to figure out what exactly I do need and what they look like! Pictures and pinouts and connector identification most gratefully recieved.

This is one of the probe cables that, unlike the others, has the 12V power connector. There's a label that reads "MTF4; P 102904300 C; 46/96"

The other probe cables all use a D-type 15pin Female connector as per last pic. They are labelled
SONDE BP P 103823
SONDE BP P 103823 A
SONDE P 103824 (which are normal [non-switch] probes)
Sorry for the poor contrast.

I'd think anything to do with "SONDE" will be related to testing Lambda (oxygen) sensors Mike.

If im not very much mistaken are you also at the helm of the BX Club and helping Ciaran out on the XM site with no name soooo, this being a truely exellent idea from KP could this post be rolled out as a sticky across the three sites? it would possibly bring more Lexia owners out of the woodwork and reach more citroen owners, after all we all have the same basic cars, what do you think? is it possible??

Its is the one of the best to all of leaxia around the city?

Hi Jim, yes they are probes for such jobs, you take a reading (ie resistance) and the DIAG records it while showing details of what the real value(s) should be. I expect it can probe far more than just oxygen sensors.

As for the 4-pin plug, it's the same as 12V power socket on the DIAG so I could sacrifice it to make my own portable power cord - which wasn't included in my kit either.

Meanwhile, I'm currently trying to rebuild the corrupt hard drive that came with the machine but getting back to the Lexia v35.20 software I've got installed, I notice that it asks for previous CD's whenever I want to reference car-specific data. This seems very inconvenient and not least because I don't have them. :roll:

On the subject of Lexia, I notice my install, in the config menu it states "Automatic Testing Harness" is missing. Any idea what this means exactly?

I've contacted Actia asking about replacement cables/connectors and have been put in touch with their sales team. Assuming they still hold them in stock, I expect Actia will still ask for silly money even though the kit is now considered obsolete. In the meantime, if anyone can source the main cable and three adapaters for me, I'd be ever-so grateful! Software also gratefully received.
