Recommended Budget OBD2 Reader?

Post by Dazbaby »

Good Afternoon,

I just wondered if anyone could recommend a good OBD2 reader at up say £100 for use on my Wife's 2004 1.4 C3 and my Xsara Picasso 1.6hdi.

Got an EML light on on the C3 after a cold damp early morning start - the car went into limp mode but returned to normal albeit with the light still showing and the Picasso is showing a failed ABS sensor so these are the type of things it will used to diagnose.

Any help / knowledge much appreciated.

Cheers

Darren

For PSA vehicles, you should consider getting a Lexia Kit, which is as near dealer-level as you can get. They can do a lot more than read and clear fault codes, but you'll really need a dedicated laptop to run the software as it is a messy installation.

Many members here including myself have purchased their kits from a UK supplier, with UK support:

There is a member discount scheme too, details here:

Hello Marc,

That's great Marc, thanks for the recommendation - much better than buyer something not fit for purpose.

Cheers
