Fault Code Reader
Anyone recommend one for a B9?

I did search the forum but the only results were for the older models, Do they still work with the B9?
16 Plate Berlingo Multispace XTR
Diagbox with the interface cable.
2001 1.9D Multispace.
Diagbox diagnostics in Northumberland.
Or an app like Torque on smart phone connected via bluetooth dongle.
2010 Berlingo Multispace HDi 110 with FAP.  Persamos green.

A fault code reader is a generic device, that reads the Eobd data that has to be available from all cars after a certain date. You can use one on a Bugatti Veyron of a Ferrari.
This information is purely emission related, and will not necessarily enable you to find out specific engine faults, or other issues with the car.
For example, Renault are good at hiding their information away from eobd readers & even some fairly sophisticated garage diagnostic software.
Nothing will ever be as good as the manufacturers equipment, because it was specific for each model they make.
To successfully diagnose a B9 Berlingo, you must use Diagbox, even Lexia is not up to the job as it is too old.
However a simple Eobd reader will often get the basic engine codes from an ecu, which with the help of google will be an aid to repair.

Was just going to say the same thing, I have tried a couple of generic readers in the past on various cars and most of the time don't show any fault.

Just had a quick look on Amazon and the cheapest is about £15, next ones up seem to be £25-35. I paid £50 for my diagbox software with all the leads, if you have a laptop and a bit of basic computing skills you should be able to get it running.

This is what I purchased.
