Hi guys error code readers which one do i use i have galaxy ghia 2003 which has,allegedly, one the registration doc Variant ASZ1.
i have just bought a hand held EOBO/OBD11 reader suitable for all cars? my question is, is this correct, as I have read that the VW version, which I believe this one is, is VAG.
Now having asked that would the reader i have be any use? or how can i adapt this to read VAG error codes.
thanks in advance, oh by the way in need this to find the problems on the parking aids back and front.

What you have there is a generic code reader, it's only suitable for reading engine fault codes, what you really need for these cars is a lead from ebay and using a laptop connect to all the cars modules, have a read through the link below.

2009 Kia Sedona GS In Black 2.9CRDI 183PS. 5 Speed Manual WAV.
2003 MK2 Galaxy Ghia In Solid Black 1.9 TDI 115PS. 5 Speed Automatic.

Upgraded Eberspächer booster heater  to independent heating with 7 day timer.

With VCDS lite (full version) need a code clearing or want to scan for faults in the north kent area, PM me.
All for a pint of Strongbow.
