Q: I have three questions on DS708:
1). The one I can remember at the moment is a 2008 Peugeot 407 1.6HDi, it would say, 'no communication with tester and vehicle' when I tried to reset the particle filter and then give a list of things to do e.g. check wiring between the tester and the vehicle, check if ignition was etc... But those conditions had been met already, otherwise it would say that all the time and not just for certain part of systems.
2). Just used it today on a 2004 peugeot 307 1.6HDi, it list the resetting of the airbag but it says that it can not communicate with ecu and to make sure the ignition is on and the wiring is ok. Everything is ok but it won't communicate.
3).I tried to update the system and it wouldn't, so I registered it and tried again, still nothing. I made sure I had a good power supply and internet connection. Still it came up with messages about unable to write to sd card and the sd card was in the machine properly. Please advice
1) you say DS708 fail to reset the particle filter and reset the airbag.
DS708 not support resetting the particle filter and not support resetting of the airbag. DS708 mainly support: read and erase codes, ECU information, live data, custom list, active test, coding and adaptation.
2) As for DS708 register and update: A) please open DS708 user manual and turn to page 19, it lists 3 ways to register and step-by-step shows how to register. And refer this file on how to update DS708.
