    That's a re-badged one of these - and I can tell from experience that it doesn't work on the DTi. The only genuine code reader I know of for the DTi that costs below £600 is VauxCheck.

    Your best bet is to contact Gendan to see exactly what codes it will and won't read on your car. They often add functionality to allow it to talk to more modules. This way you won't buy it and then find it won't do what you want.

    The version I have installed at the moment (upgrades are usually free or pretty cheap) will read some ABS modules (not had an ABS fault yet to see if it will read mine) but not Airbags.

    You will need a laptop - VauxCheck is PC software (and an ELM327 USB cable).
