Thinking of buying Peugeot Planet but not got much idea what it's benefit is going to be. Other than reading and clearing fault codes, what else can it do?

If I were to buy it, what's the cost likely to be and is that for just software, just hardware, or both?

Cheers.

Hi Viking,
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...:)
Ron.

This is what it can do....

Read identification
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.

Measured Values
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
Actuator test activates particular actuator (e.g. turn on fuel pump, lock/unlock wheel, lock/unlock doors, cut off fuel, etc..)

Programming functions/Adaptation
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?

Also, any idea how much I should be paying?

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.

watch this space ;)

They give you instructions but they must be translating them because you would think they left bits out, got mine loaded but at the minute won`t talk to my car , think it`s easier to load lexia first then pp, never thought it would drive me this mad.:eek:

Are you still running it on windows 7?

If so have you tried putting the app into XP compatibility mode?

What was the total cost for the hardware and software. Please post link of the ebay seller.

Also with lexia and planet on xp will it be possible to code car keys and radios.If this is possible I think it will be worthwhile buying it.
