OBD Recommendation

I am looking for a cheaper OBD device to use on my 2015 D4. I do not need the full capability of an iiD tool, I only need fairly basic operation to include the ability to reset the battery management system and reset keys etc. There are loads on Flee bay and Amazon. In particular I have seen recommended somewhere else on this site the Autel AP200 on Amazon for £75. They also do a cheaper one at £59.99. Any advice suggestions, on this or any other makes would be very much appreciated. Bow down

The 2020, (white), version of the AP200 has been replaced by 3 alternative, (red), versions.
Unfortunately these are being sold on a subscription model with an annual fee for the comparable M version of about £16 after the first year.
The 2020 version comes with a lifetime free subscription for cars from a chosen manufacturer and looks like it might offer a superior capability regarding ABS brakes.

autelstore.co.uk are currently still offering the original white version at £46 but will despatch from China, having run out of UK stock.

I would recommend trying to get a white version immediately.

Edit autelstore suggest that the white version cannot program keys but several members have recently reported programming their Discos for new keys and I suspect that the caution may only apply to some other manufacturers vehicles.

I’d deffinately recommend the white Autel, can do keys amongst other things and can be used across all vehicles within a manufacturer. Does the usual code finding / deletion and the below as part of its service menu





Prices seem to be climbing though, was £45-£60 now I can’t see one under £69

This is the one I purchased:

https://www.autelstore.co.uk/wholesale/aut...anner.html

and seems a great bit of kit for £46 Thumbs Up

Download the software (need to download 2 apps) to your phone, pair with Reader via bluetooth, select LandRover and it will read the codes for any LandRover as a free subscription Thumbs Up

It was shipped from China, so does take a few days to arrive.

Are you able to tell me if the AP200 (white) can give the cylinder balance readings for the injectors?

Hi

Wished to say even though I’ve got an iid just ordered one as I think it will be perfect to keep in the glove box

Many thanks for the link and heads up ref other models / subscriptions as didn’t realise that

See they also say that u must exit the program before removing , as I thought I’d it could have been left in situ but if I’m reading it right it can’t , no big deal, was just curious

Is most Appreciated , indeed was still £45.00 Thumbs Up

Hi Pete

Certainly getting very popular , See there quoting 2-3 days with the one I’ve just ordered , won’t hold my breath Laughing

A: To UK local address, normally take about 2-3 working days. to other European country will take about 5-7 working days, this all depends on the address is close or remote.

Also just found the manual

https://www.autelstore.co.uk/upload/pro/au...manual.pdf

Set up guide which I hope will be handy , maybe they can be linked into the Autel thread for future reference

https://www.autelstore.co.uk/upload/pro/au...-guide.pdf

As a side note, found the key programming section

Also interesting as it looks like it can also do the brake bleed , plus haven’t heard that before about it putting the pads on and off for bedding in, alas maybe its just for the EPB section

EPB service

This function has a multitude of usages to maintain the electronic braking system safely and effectively. The applications include deactivating and activating the brake control system, assisting with brake fluid control, opening and closing brake pads, and setting brakes after disc or pad replacement, etc.

Hi Pete

Hopefully it will turn up in the next few days , know in the past when I’ve ordered bits from China it’s taken around 6-8 weeks

Also wonder if that ship that got stuck in the suez has caused a large knock on effect with deliveries

Ordered it from here

https://www.autelstore.co.uk/wholesale/aut...anner.html

Always annoying when they don’t reply after submitting a help ticket ,maybe they got more than average messages because of the bank holiday etc and haven’t seen urs yet

Wonder if u can cancel it and order one from the link above , still only £45.00

Hope it arrives soon Pete

Also didn’t realise they sell the red AP200 @ £38.00 , but from reading the title its a simplified version of the white ap200

Plus I’m convinced the notice below wasn’t on the site ref the white AP200

Notice: Can Not Support Injector Coding and Key Programming, Mileage Correction Functions. Mainly for Fault Code Read and Erase!!!
