    Default Delphi Diag Tool

    Alright! Thanks to DmCurtayne for the recommendation I purchased one of these on Ebay.

    https://www.cardiagnosticsa.co.za/pr...ruck-adapters/

    But I couldn't get it to connect on my Windoze 10 laptop. Looked it up on the Googlebox and a lot of people said it doesn't work on 10.
    Contacted the seller and they said it only works on XP or 7. Damn! So I went out and bought a beater laptop for $75 with 8.1 installed. That didn't work either!
    Then David said his works fine on 10 after you install the patches supplied on the disc.
    I found an application in a folder called 'Redis' , installed that and hey presto, she works easily on 10 using Bluetooth or cable.
    So I contacted the seller again and informed them of what they should have told me in the first place which would have saved me a day out and an unneeded purchase. It was a nice day though, driving over to Brunswick Heads through Stokers Siding, and having fish'n'chips by the river from the most expensive fish'n'chip shop in the Southern Hemisphere maybe. [$34 for two, ouch.]
    Anyway guys , I believe every home should have one of these diag tools for all sorts of reasons. It won't put the shop out of biz cause you'll still be asking questions.
    I have two.
    1. Is the 'Engine Speed Sensor the same as the Crank Angle Sensor?
    2. Where the hell is the coolant temp sensor on the 2006 307HDI 1.6 engine? I guess Mister Google will tell me if you can't.
    One thing that looks highly useful on this tool is the 'Flight Recorder' function.
    You plug the tool into the car without the laptop , press the record button and take it for a drive. If a fault occurs you quickly flick the record button which installs a line across the graph at that point making it easier to track the fault. When you get home you download the recording to yer laptop and have a good look at it.
    Seems pretty sensible to me.
    Cheers.

    Thanks David.
    The vin is VF3319HZC84472521
    After about 30K's of running sweetly it suddenly misses a beat, like it cuts out for a moment. This happens thereafter intermittently seemingly unrelated to revs.
    I think the engine speed sensor is probably the culprit. What do you say?
    The temp gauge also has an intermittent fault where it suddenly says the temp is way high and the STOP sign illuminates on the dash.
    This then corrects back to normal after a few seconds. So there it would seem is the faulty Coolant Temp Sensor.

    Yes sounds like the sensor ,failing that the connector on the sensor.
    Some of these have problems with the connector on the fuel pressure sensor but crank sensor sounds more likely
    You will need a coolant temp sensor this is number 2
    Fuel pressure is number 14
    And crank is number 6

    That piece of gear looks a treat.

    Far too advanced for me.

    I've been using a $20.00 Chinese cheapie for my needs. I wanted a device that would erase turbo 'limp' mode. It wasn't until I replaced the three rear sensors, (located under the intake manifold), that the 'limp' mode issue ceased. I need to use it to erase codes after my SA459 clean.

    Check it out:

    I saw Ed China using one recently, however the episode was six years old!

    Are there any units that connect to Apple Macs?

    No because apple doesn’t like pirate software
    And all diagnostic tools are written for pc

    If you can code, the pyOBD library runs on Macs using Python. You'll also need something like the ELM-UBD hardware adapter.

    The pre-compiled downloadable stuff for this library is also Windows only.

    I use an "old" mac laptop - circa 2009.

    I've partitioned it with Boot Camp and run a Win7 32 bit version on it.

    Works well with all these diagnostic programs.
