    Hi All,

    Just need a quick bit of advice, I wanted a code reader and bought an Autel multi scan MS309 off Fleabay.

    Sadly it does not connect properly to my van, wondered if I had a faulty reader (what can you expect for a tenner) but it works perfectly on one of our cars.

    I know people use the the same reader on the 2.3 130bhp and Euro 5 engine but possibly mine is older technology.

    Has any one got an early 2.2 100bhp engine and a code reader that works.

    Sadly people on fleabay know naff all about items they are selling.

    Your assistance would be appreciated.

    Paul

    In which way does it not connect - physically or electronically ?

    Is the OBD reader / scanner OBD II ( 2 ) ?

    What year is your car ?

    Your 2008 MH could well be Euro 4 emissions

    The car is 6 months old, and works instantly no problem even reads vin number.

    Reader plugs in to van ok, followed instructions ignition off/plug in/turn on ignition and came up with linking error after long time followed instructions turning everything off to reset.

    In the end managed to get it to connect by having engine running and after linking error message pressed enter again and it came up with pwm protocol and sat for ages with me occasionally pressing enter and then it connected but said no codes recorded even though my engine management light was on

    The van has gone back under warranty as tick over also a bit erratic but would be good to have a reader in the glovebox that works on my van.

    As @Techno states, & I agree, any decent OBDII reader should work.
    Odd that it works on your newer car but not the MH.

    The cheap readers are tremendous value for money and the Torque pro app is cheap too. They work fine and have always allowed me to reset throttle valve and EGR fault codes once the issues were fixed.

    The Reader I have is OBD II and my suspicion is the earlier Ducato 2.3 and 3 litre were fully OBD II but I am not sure the 2.2 is which in actual fact is a ford lump refered to as Puma I think. So presumably Euro 4?

    Diesel cars in Europe from 2004 had to be compliant with OBD II by law as I understand but have sneaky suspicion this was not quite the case with commercial vehicles.

    So I think I need an older style reader.

    Hi Andy,

    No black smoke and engine pulls like an absolute train considering least powerful. Impressive onboard display using phone but notice you have 3 litre which I think may be more up to date than mine.

    Regards Paul

    The excellent 2.2 Ford Puma engine was fitted to some MK3 Mondeo's, Land Rovers, & Jaguars amongst others & can be Euro 3 or 4 or 5 & maybe even 6 emissions rated dependent on the year of the vehicle ( My old 05 plate Mondeo 2.2 ST TDCi with the same engine was Euro 3 & OBDII compliant )

    @Techno 's engine is a Fiat - yours is a Ford engine.

    Mine is Iveco. Fiat don't use fiat engines in Ducato but not relevant anyway as they're all OBDII

    The engines are Iveco made not Fiat and have the name cast on the head.
    If Fiat made it it would be more problems :LOL:

    Also used in Peugeot Boxers so is it then a Peugeot engine :LOL:
