    Default Code Reader

    Does anyone have experience of these code readers?

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/UNIVERSAL-OBD2...d=p3286.c0.m14

    I need it to fit a 2003 53 V6 CDTI Auto.

    Im fairly sure this will do the job, just be good to hear from someone who has had experience with one of these.

    Thanks

    The 'U480 code readers' work perfectly well on the half-canbus systems on cars like our pre-facelift V6 cdti's.I should know..I've got one.

    mate i have that reader for my Full canbus system and to be honest i think its rubbish, i got the spanner light and it went off (this should store a fault) but the reader showed nothing and yet wen i selected to delete codes, it did delete it??

    it wouldn't benefit me selling you it mate that's a good price on eBay.
    try it and see how you get on and if it doesn't work good send it back!
    but if you want my opinion, don't get it.
