Having bought what was supposed to be a Lexia 3 rev C cable some time ago, I finally got round to trying it out today on my (approx 4 yr old) Partner Tepee.

It seems both PP2000 and DiagBox are talking to the USB hardware, and the menus seem to change slightly depending on whether the engine is running or not so something is definitely happening. I didn't want to start any service operations, but I thought I could at least unintrusively check some sensors, but it kept saying there were none (and I tried quite a few).

There was a choice over the exact software version to install (DVDs came with a couple of versions), I chose one less than the latest, (PP2000 V24.21) this was is for a 4 yr old Partner Tepee, so I assumed that would be OK. VIN code and the other manufacturing code were both accepted. Registration seemed to work fine.

On startup I was asked a bunch of questions about name, dealer address so I just gave random answers.

Also was asked if a have a 16-way central connector and said 'yes'. Assumed that means the OBDII, but it seemed a funny question.

I'm running Windows XP as a virtual machine under Linux (KVM), instructing Qemu to pass through the USB device. All seemed well when I installed and activated the PP software. I actually installed everything including Lexia (Citroen), PP2000 and Diagbox. Everything activated OK following one of the youtube videos, although there were some small differences with what happened for me but everything looked good.

What I did notice was that the OBD connector felt a little loose. Wasn't a very positive connection.

Can anyone tell me a part of the PP2000 software which is guaranteed to be available regardless of vehicle, so I can check that? I'd just like to see some data going back and forth. If I understand correctly there are some standard codes that are always available to any OBDII devices, but I've no idea how I'd hit them using this software.

many thanks,
Simon.

I couldn't get PP2000 to work on linux at all :eek:

To be honest, I've never seen or heard of PP2000 or Diagbox asking for the reg. It all goes by VIN and DAM number.

If you're installing PP2000 AND Diagbox, you can expect some issues as there is a version of PP2000 built in to Diagbox, and the 2 seperate installations will conflict and throw a wobbly.

But, if you're on Linux, you may somehow avoid the conflict.

The menus should remain the same, regardless of whether the engine is running or not.

I definitely heard of people using it under virtual machines on Windows (because they had a later version of Windows than XP), I just assumed it would work the same on a virtual machine under Linux.

Sorry, yeah, that's what it asked for. I was assuming it actually did something with that info, like tell you if your vehicle was not compatible. I'm hoping that means my vehicle is compatible because it didn't complain.

I'm following the youtube guide below.
