Re: OBD II location

Behind the fuse cover (which is the thing held in by two screws on the right of the steering column) and the OBD port can then be found just beneath the fuses.

If it does work I bet that it only reads codes, I doubt very much that it will clear them too, it's just seems too cheap.

Re: OBD II location

I spent £22 on this:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...84.m1439.l2649

It reads faults on my Panda Multijet and clears them.

No, sorry I don't. Due to me being the 'family mechanic' over the years and working on a few different makes/models of vehicles, I've been looking into buying a system that would clear codes etc, it's a complete nightmare.
Even the system that my local MOT garage uses can't reset the service reminder on my wife's 2006 Panda, that cost them a couple of grand too,.....far more than I can afford.

Yes and possibly yes (not tried service reset on the Panda) I've the registered version and it's great IMO. Lots of other members will confirm this also (Stilo section).

If I knew for sure about the service reset, I would be more tempted to buy this system, including the interface device, how much are we talking then?

Hmm, sorry but it's about has clear as mud to me. Can't see a total price any where, the interface info is patchy at best, which one is guaranteed to do the job/work with which make/model of car.

Can you only buy these interfaces via the link to those dealers then? So I'm looking at at least £46.74 for the one below (assuming it's going to work with Pandas) and I guess 49.95 Euros for the software??

Still a minefield isn't it then.

Re: OBD II location

You'll need different ones for different functions. All can be purchased cheaply from ebay
