Is Lexia 3 with Diagbox good choice for Citroen DIY?

Hi, Joy,

I have a Citroen C4. It seems there is something wrong with my C4 recently and now I need a simple diagnostic tool to pull codes. A friend told me that Lexia3 scanner with Diagbox software is a good choice. Is this true? How does it work on C4? Do you have any feedback on it? Please reply as soon as possible. Thanks a lot.


Dear Leon,

Yes, Lexia3 V48 /PP2000 V25 with Diagbox V7.53 is one of the best Citroen diagnostic tool on our shop. More than 700 Lexia3 diagnostic tools are sold in EOBD2 in 2014 and most of the buyers are happy with it. Below are some reviews from C4 owners:

1.    My Lexia 3 China has been used successfully on my XM2.1TD and C4 2.0HDI. The C4 OBD connection has been temperamental but gets there with patience.

2.    I personally have had no issues over the past 5 years on my XM. Initially i had a connectivity problem soon resolved by EOBD2 technicians. It is use has been primarily as a maintenance tool 2 or 3 times a year and only on 3 occasions in that time, in all cases was accurate.

3.    I bought a Leixa 3 V48 in October and have no problem connecting it to my C4 and Peugeot 107 with that Diagbox V7.53.

Hope this would be helpful for you.

Best regards,

Peugeot BSI programmed by SVDI PSA goes into boot mode, how to fix?

Last week a customer sent me an email, telling me that his BSI in Peugeot 207 BSI was damaged, no horn or light after connected to SVDI PSA Commander to do programming. There was no problem when the tool built connection with the car, but the BSI would not response when programming. He was wondering is there anything wrong with the SVDI PSA?

I chatted with EOBD2.FR technicians about the issue and they found out the reason to the yesterday.

According to EOBD2 technicians, it was not the SVDI PSA scanner but the way he operated the tool. The BSI would not response because the programming took more time than he expected. One of our technicians used the battery of the non-starting Peugeot on another car to start the donor-car and then he was able to connect to the “dead” BSI and revive it by switching off the economy / boot mode.

Here is the correct way to program BSI with SVDI PSA:

1.    Remove the fuse wiper and street lamp;
2.    Hook up the SVDI PSA to the car
3.    Start odometer correction procedure
There will be no problem programming the BSI then.

If you have meet the same error when using SVDI PSA, hope this write up will help. If you have any questions about the tool, please contact our customer service at: .
