Default What's the deal with the Lexia3 clip cable?

As the title says:

What's the deal with the Lexia3 clip cable?

Is it just to measure battery voltage?

How does it work with PP/diagbox?

Can you hook it up to other components to get an oscilloscope/multimeter type reading?

Does anybody actually use it?

There's a severe lack of instructions for Lexia diagnostics out there, except to 'how to install', and that one 'guide' that doesn't really tell you anything.

It seems that most people just experiment and blunder on through 'till they figure out how to use it..

Unless there's an awesome guide somewhere I haven't found?

All of the other cables are for pre-OBD cars.

The leads allow for connections to older style diag sockets and to power unit direct from battery as most older diag sockets were data only with no power supply

Nice one. Might as well throw them up into the attic so then. I suppose I could make a set of multimeter clips from them, but might as well hold on to it just in case.. :-)

Lol.. I might reconsider so then, see what I can Macgyver out of it! I suppose there's probably not many cars left that'd use them anyhow?

I have a new multimeter arriving in the mail soon, so I might make one or two clips for them from the old leads..
