Like above i got mine from ebay and it works fine...
Remember clearing fault code wont fix the problem(s) but will steer you in the right direction...I'm still learning myself...
This is what it can do....
Displays complete identification of control unit, e.g. part number, software/hardware version, manufacturer, etc...
Read fault codes
Displays all stored and pending fault codes with complete description (e.g. "Rail pressure - too low pressure").
Program supports report printing or copy to clipboard.
Clear fault codes
This function clears all stored fault codes and other diagnostic information.
Auto-scan ( Complete car scan / test )
Detects all ECU's (electronic control units) installed in car and reads all diagnostic fault codes.
Program displays live Data like Engine Speed, Battery voltage, Oxygen Sensor, Coolant Temperature, etc. Values can be displayed in graph, 9 values at once, or full listing (all measured values). Logging to file is also supported, which allows offline analysis.
Actuator test activates particular actuator (e.g. turn on fuel pump, lock/unlock wheel, lock/unlock doors, cut off fuel, etc..)
This feature is of great importance in all vehicles because systems like Engine control units, Immobilizers, Airbags, Alarms, Body Control Units, and some others, require you to perform reset or programming procedures after car repair is done, or even configuration after replacing broken Control Unit.
Hardware and Software requirements
Software requires at least Intel Celeron/Pentium III 400 MHz, 128 MB RAM, 50MB free HDD space and USB 1.1 port (USB 2.0 recommended) and Microsoft Windows 98 SR2/2000/XP with the latest service pack installed
So it's something akin to VCDS (Vag Com) which is VW/Audi based, and gives basically the full dealer capabilities on a laptop. Don't suppose it reads down as far as security coding for keys, transponders, and remote coding does it?
I have a cunning plan to bypass this and provide a Planet compatible system for about £50. I'm off work for quite a spell on the sick from the end of this month, and I'll be using the time to work further on this.

I've bought a cruise control stalk from AliExpress, as well as the diagnostic interface. I've installed Diagbox and succeeded to change the parameters in the BSI, but when I try to change the parameters in the Engine ECU it doesn't work.
The option is there, but if I click in "Present"...
What is the best way to clean my engine bay and underside of bonnet, I don’t have a pressure washer. What kind of cleaning products are best, and what areas if any should I cover to avoid water getting in?
This is for a 2004 307 cc 2.0 automatic.
When I clean the car, I just about always end up with water spots, until I got my 508SW, it didn't really matter as you couldn't see them as it was a silver car. But now I have the 508, it's black, so every little water mark shows.
I know it's hard water where I live, so was wondering what you...
