    Default Lexia diagnostic tool

    An acquaintance and I purchased a Chinese Lexia/Diag box a couple of years' ago which is a disaster to install and to use. Cost was $340 which I consider is a reasonable outlay. Has anyone purchased a recent version which is easy to install and to use. I guess we only need the software as the plug-in device is somewhat universal.

    From memory our Diagbox is version 6.0 if that means anything.

    Tried here? http://tinyurl.com/krn5bz2 for the iso.

    There's also the odd torrent, and Usenet, though the latter are old posts, so long retention will be needed.

    Mine is on an old laptop with the XP operating system. Nothing else on the laptop and so, it works fine.

    Does it recognise at 1995 Xantia VSX? My friends Lexia doesn't recognise it, either via the VIN or typing in year/model. I think 1995 was the changeover from the older BX system to the newer Lexia friendly system.

    Quite a lot of cars like yours, have problems with the 30 pin diagnostic adapter in the Chinese kit. I personally believe the simplest approach overall, is to wire in a 16 pin plug like on a later Xantia.

    My electrical skills are such that I would probably completely stuff it up.

    When I had trouble with the idling of the Xantia, we ended up replacing most of the components and cleaning the injectors. It worked. Maybe only one component needed changing and maybe that could have been picked up by Lexia and end up being a bit cheaper.
