    Default diagnostic port

    Hi everyone, i have a memoscan diagnostic reader that i have used on many cars and is known to be working correctly but it will not pair with my 52plate vectra c (2.0 dti ls) the car is running fine with no warning lights, is this to be expected of this car or is there a fault somewhere? im also curious that IF this is due to the car/vauxhall does this mean that the car would not be able to be remapped via the port? Many thanks for any assistance in this matter.

    Looking on ebay at the memoscan U581 it covers the following cars: All Petrol cars sold in Europe from 2001, All Diesel cars sold in Europe from 2004. So looks like your diesel may be too old.

    This is the same problem I have with my 2003 2.2 DTi. As far as I have been able to find out, you either need software such as Vauxcom or a more expensive fault code reader as these work with pre-2004 diesels.

    Gendan do both of these - Vauxcom is their own software and they also sell the Sealey VS8650 fault code reader (also available elsewhere as the Autel EU702).

    Perhaps one of these will meet your requirements and budget.

    Also I don't think there are many remaps for the DTi's
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I've been in talks with a remap company lately and although they could not do the remap due the car having a hybrid ECU (as pretty much all remap places will say for the DTI engines)they went away done some research and have come back to me saying that they now have the ability to remap the hybrid ECU of the DTI engines.

    I'm booked in for the afternoon on the 4th Sept, will provide feedback of my experience then. If I can get figures too I will. Alternatively I'll chip in on the next rolling road meet if I feel there has been a considerable performance gain with the remap. They have stated it should give 25 to 30 BHP with a bit more torque too.

    We'll wait and see.

    Mitch, before I start giving out loads of wrong information etc I'm going to wait till after my car has been in and they have done the remap before I sing their praises and 'Tell All About It'.

    As said I'm booked in for the 4th Sept and I'll give full write up about my experience with full Names, Location, Tel No's, Service recieved, Work conducted and most importantly the cost and the results!! I'll disclose the cost at time of write up but it is very modest and even cheap as far as remaps go.

    I like all DTI owners are probably sick of being told the DTI cannot be remapped so this tuning garage was no different, but as posted earlier they went away done thier homework and now say they can do it. So it's a bit of wait and see just now but my fingers are crossed.
