OBD2 scanner for Vito 638

Hi all,

Can someone please recommend an OBD2 scanner that reads and erases fault codes on a 2002 Vito 638 2.2 CDI. My current scanner will only erase fault codes, so i have no idea what the actual fault is. Would the iCarsoft MB V1.0 work??
Thanks in advance!

I think you need MB Star for that job.

Thanks for the reply morpheusRO

I ended up buying the iCarsoft MB V1.0 and it works great on the Vito, it reads a heap of functions like rail pressure, (which was my issue, faulty hp pump), oil, fuel, air intake temps, injector firing time in m/sec, injector voltage, scan and clear codes and also has an on-board library to look up what the actual fault code is, the list goes on. It`s an amazing piece of kit at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend it!

Nice! Do you know if it works on old vitos as well? Like the 38 PIN ones?
And can you share the link with the iCarsoft MB ?

Not sure if it will work on the older Vitos with the 38 pins, there may be an adapter available.

Here is a link for anyone interested..... https://www.icarsoft.com/Product/s-2...oft_MB_V1.html

G'day, do you know if that scanner can reset the SRS light on the 2002 Vito?

To answer my own question: yes it does.

I bought the same scanner off eBay. Make sure you get online and update the scanner firmware first, then it talks to the SRS module just fine.
