    I have a U480 an works perfectly fine, although, now I have OP-Com it has proved that although the U480 does remove fault codes from view, the car does retain some of the stored faults which only OP-Com or Tech2 can see. HTH

    Same here.

    My U480 arrived today. Works really well. Needed to remove some codes after I fixed my MAF and replaced the thermostat and coolant temp sensor.

    And it works on lots of other cars too.

    Not a bad bit of kit for £23.

    Vehicle : Vectra C Hatchback Facelift

    Trim : Club

    Engine : Z18XE

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 100085

    Default

    Bought a U480 Fault code reader last year for our 55 reg Facelift Club with the Z18XE petrol engine, but seem to remember it might not be suitable for the diesel Vectra C's registered before 2004...someone on here might confirm or deny this to be the case....
    Members experiences with this reader are posted on here.. try Search section for Fault Code Readers....

    Cheers
