    Votre anglais est très bon. L'article de scangauge devrait fonctionner avec votre voiture. Car il était manufacturé après 2001 et votre moteur a une signification de préfixe de Y que c'est une conception postérieure de moteur, vous devriez avoir un port OBD2.

    Your English is very good.

    The scangauge item should work with your car. As it was manufactured after 2001 and your engine has a Y prefix meaning it is a later engine design, you should have an OBD2 port.

    Thank you, your French is very good too...
    I'm ok with the fact that my car had an OBD2 port but the Scangauge that I already have didn't work. It stays on home screen with "connecting..." displayed and I've tryed all possible modes.

    Merci, votre Francais est trèsbon également.
    Je suis ok sur le fait que ma voiture a un port OBD2 mais le scangauge que j'ai déjà ne foctionne pas. Il reste sur l'écran d'accueil avec "connecting..." écrit et j'ai essayé tous les modes possibles.

    It definately should work - the diesels got OBD2 from model year 02 (anything built after June/July 2001 in other words.

    I just ask to believe you...

    Maybe someone who have scangauge on diesel car can tell me what mode use?
    And also tell me the version of their scangauge if it can change something.

    I just want to be sure before send back the item to get another, to not ask money after....

    I set mine on Dieselb with my 1.7CDTi, no problems at all. Make sure the cables are securely in place, and maybe try the other plug on the scangauge since there are 2.

    I try the 2 plugs...

    It works on yours but you've got a cdti, which is a new kind of engine, mine is 1.7DTI...

    The seller is ok to refund me, so I will sen back the scangauge, but I really want to find other way to "talk with my car".
