    Question Signum 3.2V6 question

    Hi guys/girls

    I'm a happy owner of a Signum (2004/10) V6 3.2

    However the car still has 1 year warranty, I'm think of buying a 'code reader' to prepare for the future and would like to ask for your help...

    a, The car has a CAN-Bus system, has it?
    b, Is there a specific brand/type with that you have positive experiences (e.g.: U581, GS400 etc.)
    c, Are these 'readers' able to read other data apart from engine specific details?

    thanks in advance!

    As far as I know only fancy Tech2 gadgets (3-4K) do tricks, other cheap ones only read codes

    Yes, the signum has CANBUS. What other data did you think it would read? As far as I know the units available to the public will only read fault codes.

    If you want a tool that does more than just read engine codes, You need Ilexa's 'Vauxcom' software and interface...it reads ALL codes on the car, drives modules, programmes all modules and comes in at a rather cheap £520 inc UK taxes..

    How do I know??.... Because Plasma and I have one each.....
