Hi ambrozie,

Also I never tried, it is said that lexia does only work with the french versions of the imiev (c-zero and ion). For the imiev you would need at MUT III interface, the software and a laptop with an older Windows version.

Best,

tom

Are you sure ?

Although the VIN number on a C-Zero/Ion is detected automatically by Diagbox you have to enter a valid RPO number manually, which is not actually printed on the car. (I looked mine up on Puegeot service box)

Diagbox has a database of vehicle VIN numbers built into the software that lists exactly what ECU is present in every supported car sold by Peugeot/Citroen. So the VIN number of the vehicle is used to look up this database and build a list of ECU's to search for and query.

If i-Miev VIN numbers are not in this database it won't know what ECU's it should be looking for and will say that it is an unsupported car.

So although I have not tried it, I suspect it will not work. I have a Lexia 3 with Diagbox that works on my Ion but I don't know anybody nearby who has an i-Miev to test it on.

I upgraded my diagbox to expecting do some codings to my miev, so was no problem to connect thru peugeot or lexia, the biggest probelm, I did not found what I was looking for, it is more less same as easy diag, but it works for shure, connects to modules, and etc..
I have some fault related to missing can signals, from keyless module, and others, but the car does not have these, so I thought maybe possible to do some coding as you can do in vag cars, but could not find any, only adatation for lights, mirrors, and some other..

I can do key coding for my Ion with Diagbox 7.xx. It is after all the same tool that Citroen/Peugeot use to code new replacement keys they supply for the car. I have also used it successfully to unlock the radio code lockout and discover the PIN code for the radio as the previous owner lost it.

As I said, because it won't recognize the VIN number of the car it won't know which ECU's are installed so you may not have all options available to you or it tries to query ECU's that aren't present in the car. I'm surprised it worked at all!

can you check on your, is it possible to make adjustments what modules are installed in the car, example keyless module, if you able to do, I should give up, and tell that on miev diagbox does not work:)

First tell me what you mean by "keyless module" ? ;)

I assume you mean something to do with the fob/remote - but on an Ion/C-Zero it is not keyless, it has a normal blade key, an RFID imobiliser chip and a two button remote lock/unlock remote. It does not have passive keyless entry.

in cluster i got U1116, KOS CAN timeout /not equiped. As I understand it is missing signal of keyles system, looks like it thinks there is KOS..
