If you are interested in the technology of your Opel, you have probably thought about reading error codes on Opel. There is a lot to read about reading error codes on the internet. But what is suitable Opel diagnostic equipment for you? Any universal diagnostic device is suitable as an Opel code reader to read and erase engine fault codes. However, the possibilities are often limited to only read and erase those engine error codes, unless it concerns professional equipment. The OBD equipment offered can be roughly divided into 2 types; brand specific Opel equipment, or universal equipment. If you're wondering what's right for you, we'll go into more detail at the bottom of the page. Of course you can also contact us for personal advice.
Opel with OBD1 and OBD2 plug
Universal OBD equipment, such as that from Autel, is often only suitable for reading engine error codes. (Semi) professional equipment goes a step further, but that is also reflected in the price. Universal OBD equipment for engine management is also referred to as OBD2 code. In addition to OBD2, there are also Opels with OBD1. The OBD1 protocol has been used up to 2001 on Opel petrol engines and up to 2004 on diesel engines. You can read your Opel, equipped with OBD1, with brand-specific equipment. This equipment has been specially developed for Opel. An example is the iCarsoft OP V1.0 Opel. This can also read all systems present in younger Opels, with OBD2.
Your Opel's airbag light is on?
A common problem with Opels is the airbag light coming on. A bad contact in a plug, or a broken cable, is often the problem. Our diagnostic computers help you find the cause of the problem. After solving the problem, the airbag error code can also be cleared again. Would you like more information about solving airbag problems in your Opel? Then contact us for the right advice!
Opel fault codes
In addition to error codes in the engine or airbag module, there are many other systems in which an error code can occur. For example, the ABS module and gearboxes (Easytronic) are also systems that cause problems. With the right equipment you can make a complete and reliable diagnosis on your Opel Astra, Meriva, Corsa or any other model.
