    ODB2 Compliant?

    Hi again
    Anyone know what ODB2 is? Is my Mk4 1998 Astra-G ODB2 compliant
    Would you have a look at the below ebay item and tell me if you think they are any good. Does anyone have any feedback, experience or know of potential problems with any of them. Which is the best to go for. Hope you can help.

    Thanks

    as far as i know yours is OBD1 and as its a 98 model then the normal fault code reader (as in ur other post) will do the job. Halfords/Gunsons or the ones on ebay.

    saying that - the one for £50 looks tempting if it can do what it claims to do!

    OBD1/2 are "On Board Diagnostic" version 1 or 2 which apply to North American vehicles, ie US and Canada.

    EOBD is "European On Board Diagnostic" is the European implementation of OBD2 but came in much later, being compulsory for petrol engines from 1st Jan 2001 and 1st Jan 2004 for diesels.

    Vauxhall delayed EOBD implementation on petrol engines until the latest date although other manufacturers introduced it earlier.

    Astra G '98-'00 petrols are NOT EOBD/OBD2 compliant. The diagnostic socket is the same format and the ECU is EOBD-capable but the software blocks EOBD access. Tech2 compatible processors are the only way in.

    Astra G '01-on petrols, (built after 1st Sept 2000), are EOBD/OBD2 compliant, like other Vauxhalls from that date - these are the Z----- engines

    You'd be better off trying the paper clip.

    Paper clip will work on a MY99, won't work on a MY01 or later.

    Err paper clip ?
    Is that to get a bink/flash code.
    Will this reset the Light.
    My manual said this can only be done with the diagnostic equipment.
    Do you know the procedure to carry this out.
    thanks.

    Yes to get the flash codes.
    No you can't use it to reset the warning light but disconnect the battery for 30 mins or wait for 20 ignition on sequences, both assuming you've cured the fault!
