    buy a genuine code reader s the ones you buy from ebay are fakes/copies of genuine software and may not be complete - so could do irreprable damage to your car - there is a self test mode without the use of a code reader -

    which would be the quickest way to obtain a fault code which would allow someone on here to help you sooner - rather than purchaing pirated software which this site does not approve of or condone

    Doesn't work on the DTi Dez, been there done that. Not alot of cheap code readers work on the DTi either (they are a funny breed).

    I'm on the lookout for one for the DTi as I get limp home mode when towing the caravan and need to check codes

    Fraid not, the only posts I can find are about people who are either looking for a DTi code reader or have bought one and it doesn't work
