Hi New Spacetourer owner looking for help on the lexia front

Post by Flann90 »

Hi people here for some help I’ve had a 68 Spacetourer for two months and noticed that the head lamps have all the bulbs sidelights and day running bulbs but none work which I’m guessing are just switched off at the ecu or somewhere is there anyone in the northwest I’m from Blackburn with lexia that could help or if anyone could help me find what I need to look for in lexia gear to do it myself thanks ahead for any help

I would have thought that DRL's would have been a legal requirement on a vehicle this age??
Is this vehicle not still under warranty? if it is id take it into the dealers to sort.

Agreed - anything like that get it sorted under your 3 year warranty before it expires.

Has the DRL been switched off like i can do with my 2010 C5 X7 in the comfort settings via the steering wheel ?
Not sure if it can be done on a vehicle that the OP has

There is a menu on the 'Define Vehicle Parameters' section of the system configuration screen where DRLs can be turned on, along with the parking assistance options, mood lighting, Guide Me Home Lighting etc., so check that section out first (section 9.52 of the owner's hand book).

There's no guarantee that there is an option to activate it using Diagbox, so be aware.

You'll need a later version of Diagbox (V9.6* or later) for this model I suspect to work with a vehicle of this year.

There are many suppliers, but many here use Easydiagnostics for their kit as they are UK based and provide support. A discount is available for members, although we are not affiliated, details in the link:

I think Marc was referring to the Vehicle Parameters Screen within the car it should be accessed by the controls on the steering wheel.
As for the Lexia i think there is a menu for the pre delivery or something similar, you may be able to set the customer preferences in that

First, make sure to have a pen and paper to hand if you intend to make any changes using the Lexia (as once a change has been made the system will not remember the previous setting). That way if you make a mistake you should be able to go back to the previous setting. Second, before making any changes make CERTAIN you know exactly what it is that you are changing (as it is possible to cause unexpected issues if you just change settings hoping they will fix an issue). Third, make sure that any instructions you are following are correct for the version of DiagBox you are running (Marc advised me on a setting change based on his version of DiagBox, but I have an earlier version (no criticism is implied, Marc); however, I was able to make the changes with the information he provided even thought it was through a different menu).

You may well find that some changes (not all, just some) require a code to allow them to be saved. There are two codes; one is the vehicle security code and the other is the engineer code. The security code should have been provided with your vehicle on a couple of cards with a security scratch panel (and is most commonly used for dealing with the keys), while the engineer code is for other things (mainly BSi stuff).

I seem to have gotten onto the config part but it doesn’t allow changing of values they seem to be locked the curser flashes next to the text but I can’t delete or change the value to yes all the videos online show the older version of diagbox I’ll have to contact easy diagnostics tomorrow to see if I’m missing something which is most likely

Next time you are in the config menu see if (when you have highlighted an adjustable setting) an icon appears with the word "configuration". If it does (it may also have an F number, such as F1) click on it, and you may then be able to make the adjustment.
