I've no experience using a Mac platform and as far as I know only Windows works.

Previous versions of Lexia/Diagbox would only run under 32-bit windows, this may have changed with later versions. Check though, you can waste hours trying to get something to run that never does.

I've always run the software in a Windows XP virtual machine. My old laptop was Windows 7 64-bit professional so virtual machine was the only way for me.

Don't be put off with getting the software running, it's well worth it when you get 'inside' your car with Lexia.
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence and pretend you never tried :lol:

I would suggest you use Lexia to clear all the faults, start the car and then see which faults return.

When I first connected Lexia to our C3 there was a long list of historic faults, many had been corrected but the codes not cleared. On restart just one code came up, for the faulty injector which I was looking for.

Great job with you software install, can you share with us software and version you are running and what platform it's installed on?

Hi,

I installed in onto a notebook running xp but had problems with resolution size and not being able to fully see Lexis screen so had to increase resolution above its capabilities but it works good. Offcial firmware v4.3.3 - Rev C - PSA Evolution Driver
Free other softwares include: Lexia v48 + PP2000 v25 + other useful tools. That's description of the lexia I bought. I'v been into each section that contains faults but it still shows them up

Is there a way to clear all faults at once? The low voltage within the airbag what could cause this?
