    Nice piece of equipment from Peake.
    Except the manual has no listings for diesel fault codes.
    Rather useless here I think.

    Hi again p2psmurf,

    Maybe you are looking at the US version of the manual?

    The European version listed the diesel fault codes

    hello,

    ok.. i know im a bit late, but have just started gettin in2 this as Im lookin to fit my car out.. and im lookin at this obd ii stuff...

    so im from australia,, have a 97 323 with no obd plug under the dash..

    how ever.. i have the 20pin round plug under the bonnet.. I work at a car yard and we have a snap on computer that cost about 18grand for diagnosing many MANY cars.. when I connect this computer 2 my car using the round 20 pin connector.. i gives me information like the following....

    coolant temp
    oil temp
    oil pressure
    throttle position
    co2 intake
    etc etc

    so.. i would have 2 say something like http://www.mo-co-so.com/ProductDetai...A-LNK&CartID=5 with the adapter plug will work.. i see no reason why it would not work.

    Gary, the reason it doesn't work is because the communication method used by the interface is not supported by the ecu. Not on your '97 323 ans most certainly not by a 1995 diesel. It's not required by law, so BMW didn't add the support.
    Look at this way: the car's engine ecu only speaks German and the OBD2 interface is asking questions in English. You won't get an answer that way.
    Your Snap-on talks German to your car, that's why you can see the data.
