    Default 2.0 dti can bus or not?

    Im looking for a code reader/diagnostic tool for my 2003 vectra 2.0dti. Is this Can bus compatible or not?. Also is http://search.ebay.co.uk/search/sear...e=vectra+c+can suitable for my car. Does any one have a diagnostic scanner, if so is it stand alone or laptop based?
    I have VagCom for my VW Bora, the OBDII lead cost me a tenner and the software was free.
    Is any thing similar available for the vectra?

    Vagcom is an excellent bit of kit.. Only thing comparable function/feature wise is Vaux-com. Theres only one supplier of it over here... You definitely wont find it as free software thats for sure! Your looking just at the wrong side of £500 including the plugin unit.. Although i did hear a whisper you can source the plugin unit they use elsewhere and then maybe find some other free type of software?

    Op-Com does about half what vaux-com can do. No idea on where to get the plugin unit for vaux-com just i heard you could get it seperately whilst trawling the web searching for something.. As with the free software it'd be a matter of hunting for it i guess. There was a link similar to www.freeobdsoftware.com or such where they had free legal programs to use..
