    Default GSI 3.2 Code Reader Question...

    Hi folks,

    I've had a fair search on this subject, and don't really feel i'm clear on what works and what doesn't...

    So, apart from going crazy and purchasing a Tech 2, is there a plug in code reader / data viewer available for my 52 gsi...???

    Any help, as always, would be much appreciated...

    Thanks,

    Ian B

    Hi there Ian, I have the Opelscanner Advanced, Canbus edition, and it lists the 3.2 so I'd be pretty sure that it'll work on your car.

    The only thing is that it needs a laptop to work.

    I also know that Vaux-Com would work, it's a very advanced piece of kit if you can afford it.

    the answer is there's LOADS of kit that will read the engine codes...

    body/gearbox/electrical etc etc codes are a no -no for many code readers.. if you want to access the rest of the car apart from the engine then i can't reccommend Ilexa's VAUXCOM enough to you.. yes, it's a big lump of wedge at £500 BUT it's got free updates for life ( and there have been 10 in the last year) to enable it to do more and more...

    as TECH2 is £4.5K , i think that £500 is an utter bargain..

    as you're quite local i'd be happy to demonstrate it on your own car..
