Right

Thought I should ask my questions in a new thread rather than lengthen the sticky.

I have now installed diagbox 7.16
I have got the file from Cyril and now interface checker reports a rev C/ (will donate, not got round to it yet, but what a star)

All hooked up to the car and, arrgh !

I think I have cable problems. Most of the time it cant find any ECU but I have managed to get the BSI recognised and have even turned the sidelights on and off !

Anyone had similar problems, and how was it resolved. The round molded plugs look difficult to open. I could get a new cable, but if its between the box and the male round plug that could be a pain.

Strangely, this is exactly what happened when I got 6.01 running despite the box being at rev B/. Is this 6.01 version able to run on rev B/'s

Might order a new cable.

Advice to anyone, get your lexia kit from the seller recommended on here (Easydiagnostics I think), trying to cut corners seems to lead to nightmares.

Did you try restarting diagbox as it may need to update interface firmware this often requires two updates from diagbox with a restart in between. You can also use interface checker to see firmware version on interface and update if needed


The rubber boots do come off quite easily on the round connectors if you take a bit of care. Some CAN communication issues are down to poor crimp connections.

Try twisting, wiggling plug to see if any improvement. You can also try contact cleaner but it can make it difficult to solder the crimps at a later date to improve contact if the switch cleaner get into the pins .

I think Only v5 works on the B. Get it flashed to rev C then use diagbox 7
Yep, have flashed it to rev C and its a fresh install of 7.16 on my XP machine which had never had it on before (got it working !).

I have restared diagbox a couple of times, and have seen the BSI and the injectors recognised twice, but most times it throws up no communication. Did seem to work after a wiggle of the round plugs so I think its wiring. I will try the short USB cable as that has been used for all the reflashing, though I don't think its a PC to Box comms issue.

However I was C&I craftsman for 7 years and know what a nightmare finding bad connections can be :(

The cable from the box to the round plug looks a pain to remake any connections on and the round connections look moulded rather than rubber so may need cutting. Pin to Pin check of the long cable is on the cards next (wife is starting to get fed up that I seem to be spending all my DIY time on it ;) )

Not sure if its the same as yours but worth a try.
I have had it on a 406 where I had to unplug the usb when it said cant communicate and put it back in then it worked.
Appears to be a USB glitch :rolleyes:

I give up !

7.16 running on dp, with interface flashed to rev c.

But it won't read the car !

Very occasionally gets the vin, and I have seen it identify the bsi and injectors, but almost all the time it comes up with no dialogue in diagbox or ECU has not responded in pp.

Tried the short USB cable and the long, no different. Might be the lead, or the unit.

Fed up :(

Putting his location in his profile would answer that question and save you having to ask :)

That is the best option though means you can try swapping bits to see what bit is actually the issue.

If you have wireless on laptop try turning it off before running Diagbox. I have read somewhere that some version try to update interface via internet and this hangs interface.

Well, finally I did give up and the 407 is off the road now as it's replacement arrived.

However, I sent the lexia back and got a refund and a cdp+ interface.

Nowhere as good as a lexia by the looks, but it does work and has diagnosed the abs fault and does work on all my cars so it's cheap and it works.

Now I know which sensor to replace I think I will fix it and see if I can get an mot done. Then it's got to be worth a few hundred quid to someone ?
