What diag interface for Citroen Picasso 2011?

My Issue:
I just bought a Citroen c4 grand picasso 1.6 hdi fap and 2011 EGS6 and therefore I want a diag tool. I also saw that there was different cable in my family there are 2014 c3 806, 206, 5008 …

I understand nothing between lexia, PPS2000, xs Evolution diagobox …
Can you explain to me so that I understand better between hardware and software. After the issue or buy it at the best price / quality and we have sure it works

Answer from one experienced technician:
Simply explain, lexia is the old Citroen diag software. PP2000 is the old Peugeot diag software, diagbox and it is the common diag program PSA for 2 or 3 years.
Diagbox also included the two programs and PP2000 lexia.
XS is changing the name of the diag interface PSA. You can find
The site you advised one interface is € 67 (sold out) apparently supports 307
and another interface is 47 €, which one to take?

It takes very often (if not always) as the flasher.
the interface 67 € is better.

There are different posts or talking to flash the interface according to the version of diagobox, should I do this manipulation?

There is a very strong chance. But it will not be enough to overcome your fear, it’s not complicated.

Difference between V47 Lexia 3 and V48 Lexia 3

As the latest V48 Lexia 3 PP2000 V25 diagnostic tool released to the market recently, mechanics that own an old Lexia 3 are wondering what the difference is between the new Lexia 3 and the last V47 version. To find out the answer, keep on reading and you will see.


Lexia 3 has won great popularity among Citroen and Peugeot car owners, especially those in France. The developers have obviously noticed this and have improved the tool to cater to French mechanics and drivers.

The biggest improvement of the tool is that it expands its support for more vehicles. The new Lexia 3 is totally compatible with Citroen cars except C5. It can work on C1, C2, C3, C4, C6, C8, C-CROSSER, NEMO, BERLINGO, JUMPY, JUMPER, AX, SAXO, BX and so on. I said it is not compatible with C5 does not mean it cannot work on C5. It is just the tool is not that good at diagnosing C5 new models. Also, it is compatible with most Peugeot cars from 1995.

Besides, the tool boasts better stability and performance than its predecessor. The new EOBD2 Lexia 3 may look just the same as the old version, but you will find it runs faster and smoother once you use it.
