FAULT CODE REDER, WHICH?
#1
Hello!

I have a Citroen Berlingo Multispace 1,4 petrol from year 2000 and would like to buy a Fault Code Reader, eraser.

The engine went into limp home mode, revolutions not going over 2000rpm.
Left the battery unplugged over night and it worked normally in the morning again til 1 km driven, so, the fault must be there still. Have changed the idle positioning sensor and cleaned out the idle control valve. Done that it started working for about a month and now it is totally back in Limp Home Mode again.

So, I want to try the Code reader but I am not sure which one to get because in the Net they say many things I can not make much sense of.

I will try to attach a pic with the available pins on the connector, maybe someone here knows what reader will be able to read that Berlingos codes?

Any code reader will fit the plug as it is a standard fitting, its the software that matters, there are universal ones which might or might not read the fault codes.
Hunt for one that says its for Peugeot/Citron

As Brodfather said, get one for PSA cars. I have DiagBox installed on a laptop for when I'm parked in the garage and use an Android App called Torque on my phone and that is linked to a blue tooth dongle that attaches directly to the plug on the car (behind the plastic cover under the steering wheel). That works well for monitoring a plethora of values in real time like temps, turbo boost, etc. There are many on the market.

Is there a way to determine on which software the car runs to have it possible to buy the correct tool and not to guess and hope that the readers meant for Berlingoes may do the job. Have red that the readers nowadays on the marked mostly do not support the earlier models, mostly 2004 and onwards, i am not sure though.

Hi3rensho
Do you have at hand the make/model of the Bluetooth dongle you use with 'Torque' please?

Hi,
I have an Autel MaxiScan MS509 which can read & clear fault codes. It can do a lot more but our 2002 1.4 Multispace has a very limited computer output. The Citroen one is Lexia which can do more.

I use this one and have had no problems. There are many other models available.

2000 model with Gasoline engine?

I went for Lexia.
Unless the connector output has changed a lot from the 1999 model, it's not really OBD II compliant.
The connector is the same, but from what I understand, the pin-out is different.

Also, Lexia allows you to do a lot of useful stuff such as 'exercising' relays and injectors.
(you can actually hear the injectors if they're activated when the engine isn't turning over. )
You can also see a lot of what happens...

(.MOV video recorded with an action-cam. It's supposed to show the screen of my netBook running LEXIA3 as I do a couple of starts.)

(Also LEXIA3, this time showing info about injectors during a start)

Take a look at the list of compatible vehicles at the bottom of the ad...

The Berlingo is NOT listed.
(The only Citroën listed is the 2004 C3)

A lot of these kind of adapters and tools are listed with random car names in the title...
