Fault code reader

Post by Allan Brown » Fri Jun 05, 2009 9:17 pm

Has anyone got a fault code reader that I can use?
The engine management light has come on in my Peugeot 406 HDI. It was ticking over a bit rough but is now running OK. I am assuming it was a tempory error but the light is still on.
I called the RAC out but his reader wouldn't comunicate with my car and Peugeot want £75 to read the code.

Thanks

Allan

This is the only way I could work out how to add photos.
Is this OBD II?
My car is V reg 2000 and from what I can understand they didn't standardise the connector or communication until 2004 for diesels.

I understood cars from 2000 onwards were OBD2, but I assume that is fresh new cars made after 2000, as my MY2000 Accord doesn't have an OBD2 port that I have found yet as it's original manufacture year was 1998.

OBD2 ports are often found under the steering wheel column.

Hi Matt,
Is it possible for you to bring your code reader to Abingdon so we can try and clear the fault?

Many thanks

Allan
