Tried my cheap OBD2 ebay jobby on the port in the glovebox, couldn’t even get it to fit on! Is there any way I can get to the fault codes without resorting to spending big bucks on a garage?

Leighton Buzzard, in Bedfordshire.

My plans of a bluetooth sender with Torque have gone out of the window then

Well, I’m 40 miles away and will stick it on the Lexia for you down here near Reading, I’m not sure when I’m passing up the M1, there’s likely someone nearer who will give you a quick Lexia session for the price of half a can of cider or whatever the forum standard price is these days

Have a look on the old Lexia map here and ask nicely..

I’m sure one of us can help you out..

Closest in Monkyfeet.

Is it worth buying a cheap chinese Lexia off ebay?

It’s definitely in the glovebox on the C5.

I was trying the right way around, checked several times!! Just got a linking error (which is the same message I got on my old petrol 306)

Happily the little yellow plastic piece has come out of the OBD2 port now as well and is stuck in the plug on the code reader! Will get some needle nosed pliers on the case!

Would love to get torque, but no point spending if it isn’t going to work.

Am in contact with CitroJim, who is getting back to me with times I can come see him and get a reading from him!

UPDATE! After a very helpful trip to see CitroJim, his Lexia pointed towards the MAF sensor! He then very kindly showed me where it was!!

So will be off to Citroen to source a new sensor on Monday!
