Yes, it should be fine for a 2004.

cheers again fella, just really wanted to make sure this would pick up the sensodrive fault(s), also, the seller(s) say these work ok with Vista, just hoping they're not just saying it to get a sale, lol

put it in flappy paddle mode and it seems to be alright, driven it round the block a few times (private estate of course), not risking driving it in auto mode!

i haven't yet, i have a pretty hectic holiday period, and have been starting the Plu regularly and this is when this happened, so was hoping to get a head start on any assumption someone may know if they have come across this before, just seems odd it will do it one day, then not again :shock:

deciding wether to just get it booked in and get it there and plugged in on the garage stuff, i know the seller had said that it drove fine using the flappy paddles, but i know he has already lied before
