Default Diagnostic/Scan tool for new Ignis

Assuming the scan port on the new Ignis is OBD2 type, is there any diag/scan tool system to buy ?

Preferably using a pc software and preferably not cracked but any original for getting the updates also.

Does my OBD2 Hex-Can cable (from Ross-Tech) from my 2009 Octavia fit or the pins differ from one car manufct to another?

I would strongly like to be able to change various settings also in the modules too and save in memories.

Thanks a lot.

OBD is a standard configuration so the OBD2 socket on all vehicle will be identical. The plug on your cable will fit the socket and you can use a hand held scanner or use proprietary software on a laptop. As well as generic fault codes - the system can generate Suzuki specific codes. There are lots of sites on the internet which detail the specific codes.

I don't think that there are any issues on the Ignis but there are issues on many cars where it's possible to extract / change various codes via the OBD socket. Some Fords are very simple to steal in this way! There are a myriad of OBD port locks on sale.

Just remembered I bought one at Aldi 9 months ago but haven't taken it out of the packet yet!

Out of interest what settings do you intend to change?

Well the Aldi one worked - https://www.aldi.co.uk/auto-xs-vehic...86756235912300 - except it wouldn't give the VIN.

No error codes detected.

However you can't adjust settings with it

Scanning devices don't allow you to change settings. At best you can reset the engine light, extract fault codes and pending codes (some faults need to occur several times before a fault is flagged). More sophisticated scanners can also extract ABS, steering and airbag fault codes.
Updating software, remapping or modifying ECU parameters is a different ballgame requiring different equipment and access to software. Unlike diesel engines or turbocharged petrols - there's very little to be gained in remapping a normally aspirated engine and any gain in one parameter would be a tradeoff against a deterioration in another.

Car manufacturers update software from time to time and a TSB would flag up to dealers what needs to be done when a particular vehicle is presented for servicing.

and the best bit is......you need a Suzuki factory security "dongle" for the factory scan tool to be able to access any "critical" functions that are adjustable, and to do firmware updates. These cost (a lot), are available to authorised dealer service agents only and only last a year.

This means sensor mappings are not user adjustable with over the counter pc software. You can change a few minor things and the "smarter" tools can allow you to code keys etc but not to adjust engine performance items. You can certainly change things like disabling the ESP but you can't save that "disabled" state to memory.

Suzuki seem to have a better security setup on their ECU's than the likes of Subaru and Nissan, probably because Suzuki have never been a real "performance" engine and the hackers haven't bothered to crack it.
