Obd Scanner

Post by Larz »

I'm looking at buying an obd Scanner to check and hopefully reset some lights after I've got a urea/Nox sensor issue.
I'm thinking of getting the TopDon artidiag 800
Would that do the job of reprogramming the ECU to tell it that parts have been replaced?

Mainly looking at this one as the didn't want to pay over £500.
Thanks, any help would be appreciated.

Resetting it won't do anything. You need to fix the underlying issue with the deNox system.

Citroen use Diagbox with a VCI interface that can be bought for about £130 for a decent full chip one, but you will need a dedicated laptop to run it.

Thanks for the fast reply. Cool I'll look into the diagbox thing.
If I replace the sensor is the TopDon 800bt able to tell my van that it's been replaced?

I can't tell you that - you'll have to ask the manufacturer - I only deal with Diagbox as it's what the dealers use.

I recommend you listen to "Marc" and buy a VCI with the appropriate software from
https://www.easydiagnostics.co.uk/
to buy.
The software version and the required laptop (operating system) must be selected depending on the year of manufacture of your vehicle.

I don't know of any diagnostic device that is capable of providing sufficient results for PSA vehicles - even expensive dealer devices have their limits.
Only the recommended DIAGBOX can run all offline versions.
