That’s actually very hard to do with a multimeter set to read voltage!!! But I guess it does show power is getting through!!

I am very surprised that happened. How did you manage to short the 12 Volt?

I don't know about your car but Peugeot used to have a set of spare fuses and a removal tool on the back of the fuse box cover.

It sounds like most of the connections to the OBD connector are okay.

One other thing I just remembered - I found if the BSI was asleep the Lexia 3 didn't wake it when I tried to read the VIN.

On my car I can tell if the BSI is awake when the odometer trip meter are displayed. I just open the drivers door to wake it.

My software came on disc with the Lexia 3 so i can't recommend a download site.

Are you still trying to use Diagbox 9.68? It may sound odd but 9.68 may not be suitable for your car. For example my car was built before Peugeot introduced Diagbox and my car wasn't supported in the early versions Diagbox. When it was added it used an imbedded version of the earlier diagnostic software Peugeot Planet (PP2000).

What software was supplied with your first Lexia 3?

Yes that's worth a try. The disc I got installed 7.02. The disc that came with Lexia 3 had 7.02 but also had some patches. I only install the first patch which took me to 7.57 but 7.02 is likely to be okay for your car.

Just of a matter on interest when you run Diagbox 9.68 what version of the 207 are you selecting? If you click 207 on the list of Peugeots there 3 to chose.

I don't know which one to select. I have tryed all of them.

BTW yesterday I tyred with versio 7.02 and still no success. What versio off firmaware I should have? 4.2.2? And are you running 32bit windows

It does sound odd that you have two faulty Lexia 3 interfaces but apparently some of these clones don’t work. However, I think the important thing is that your first unit worked once. When you bent your OBD connector was there a chance you broke a wire in your Lexia 3 cable’s OBD connector?

I am not sure which is the right version of your car you should be selecting. Except I know you have a CAN bus so you should not use 207 VAN. I suspect 207 CAN is the correct selection. The reason I asked is my 307 uses VAN and if I select CAN it can’t read the car’s VIN.

I have Diagbox V7.57 installed on a Windows 10 64 bit machine without virtual machine and also on a Windows XP 32 bit machine. Both can read the car’s VIN but the 64 bit machine can’t run the imbedded version of PP2000.

I don’t think it’s worth the cost/trouble of sending your cables back but you could contact the seller for advice. With AliExpress I suspect you will have trouble claiming after you accepted the delivery. They give you some time to decide to accept the item or open a dispute.

This is where I bought mine: Lexia-3 PP2000 for Peugeot and Citroen with DIAGBOX V7.83. Unfortunately, they are out of stock but they specialise in this sort of equipment so it might be worth emailing them as they have other version of Lexia 3. I bought this one because I wanted be sure it worked on a 307. It is worth watching this video:
I would look for a full chip version see: Lexia-3 PP2000 Full Chip VS Lexia3 Normal Version by lexia-3 on DeviantArt

Just one last idea - is there any chance that one of the pins on the Lexia 3 connector isn't making proper contact with the pins in the car's OBDII connector? It would be worth looking at the Lexia connector and comparing it with the ELM's connector to see if there is a slight difference -e.g. thicker pins that would make a better contact. If the connector is not mating properly the weight of the Lexia's cable could be enough to cause a damaged pin to break contact.

Looking at your photos pin 16 (bottom green) of the car's OBD connector doesn't look quite right (possible squashed in) if you compare it to pin 14. It could just be the angle of the photo but given the connector was strained before it's worth looking.

My Lexia 3 has:
Chip set 921815C
Firmware V4.3.2
Going by your interface check your new Lexia 3 has the same 921815C chip set as mine but with a slightly newer firmware version.

I had a closer look at your photo of your car's OBD connector and the two ground pins (5 and 6) look damaged to me, they may make contact with some connectors but not others. As I mentioned before pin 16 also looks a bit odd. I would imagine ELM device needs those connections and surprised it worked.

BTW I remember you tried your new Lexia 3 on your father's 307. Some Lexia 3's had problems with the 307 but I think your chip set and firmware should have worked. What was year of manufacture of the 307. If it's pre 2005 it's probably 307 VAN and after that it is 307 CAN. My 307 uses VAN diagnostics and I have found that the Odometer/trip meter display needs to be on before I try to get Diagbox to read the VIN. For some reason the older version of the 307 (VAN diagnostics) was not included in Diagbox 7.02 it only has the newer 307 with CAN diagnostics. It was added to later versions of Diagbox.
