    Default Anyone got a Code Reader?

    Hi, wondering if anyone local to me has a code reader ?

    I have a poorly 2.2 vectra b to fix, but didn't realise you can't use the good old paperclip test to read the codes

    it's a 2001 model.

    Can anyone help ?

    Thanks :beer:

    Not sure, It's my dads. management light on. I'd suspect o2 sensor as i recently put a new exhaust on it. seems very gutless above 3k rpm.

    @JagRigger - This method doesn't seem to work on the b

    Another idea, i already have an obd2 - usb interface which i had for my old car pc install, would anyone be able to send me some opel specific software for code reading ? lol

    there isnt a lot of opel specific software out there for your run of the mill obd scan tools only 1s i know of are opel tech 2 but any obd software should run and read the codes on a b some software will only read generic codes and some do both generic codes and
    manufacturers specific codes still think your best bet is op-com
