    Default ODB2 - Help!

    I am trying to find out if my Vecta C is compatible with ODB2 diagnostic readers (handheld type) and no one seems to know!
    My car is a 53 plate Diesel, registered in Jan 2004 .... this seems to be the switchover point from non-compatible to compatible cars!
    Does anyone know what or what I can check in order to find this out?

    Many thanks

    Default ODB2 - Help!

    Thanks Big_Sig ... what what I've been reading it's been EU law that all petrol cars since 1996 and all diesel cars since 2004 should have ODB2 diagnostic ports (and since 2008 they must all use the CAN protocol) ... but as my car was registered Jan 2004 I'm not sure if it's going to have the ODB2 or not .... I've got the port behind the ashtray .... but as far as I'm aware that could be either VAUXTECH or ODB2 .... but I'm not sure! Help .... confused :-D
