Tips: change parameters in BSI and Engine ECU with Diagbox

Car model and year:
Brazilian 308 1.6, EC5 "flex" engine
Device I bought and use:
  • Cruise control stalk
  • PP2000 diagnostic interface
I bought lexia 3 PP2000 with diagbox V7.57 from
My purpose:
To Change parameters in the Engine BSI and ECU
I've installed Diagbox V7.57 and succeeded to change the parameters in the BSI, but when I try to change the parameters in the Engine ECU it doesn't work.
The option is there, but if I click in "Present" nothing happens, and the choose box still shows "Missing".
Solution and Tips:
The ECU & BSI have to be enabled in the correct order. If the wrong order is used you end up in the situation you are in.
Try disabling cruise in the BSI, Setting the ECU option to present then go back to the BSI and re-enable it.

Peugeot Reading Codes by Lexia 3 PP2000

Here is the instruction on how to do Peugeot codes reading with Lexia-3 PP2000.
Device to use:
Lexia 3 Interface lexia 3 pp2000-peugeot 307
  1. Connect a switched jumper to wire 17 of connector M720 which is the green 2 pin connector. Connect the other terminal of the switched jumper to a good ground source.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the "RUN" (ON) position.
  3. Close the switched jumper for 3 seconds. The "CHECK ENGINE"
indicator will come on. Open the "switched jumper" and the "CHECK ENGINE" indicator will:
  1. Blink once for: 1__ (tens)
  2. Remain off for: 1.5 seconds
  3. Blink twice for: __2 (units)
Thus, a code 12 which indicates the beginning of the "TEST" sequence has been displayed.
  1. Wait for the "CHECK ENGINE" light to come on continuously.
  2. Close the switched jumper for 3 seconds. The "CHECK ENGINE"
indicator will come on. Open the "switched jumper" and the "CHECK ENGINE" indicator will:
  1. Blink (tens)
  2. Remain off for: 1.5 seconds
  3. Blink (units)
Remember the first set of flash codes is the (tens) and the second set of flash codes is the (units). The combination of the (tens)+(units) is the displayed fault code. Take note of all the stored codes.
  1. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until a code 11 is displayed. Up to 5 codes may be stored in the fault memory. Code 11 signals the end of the test sequence and there are no other codes stored. Refer to the fault code chart.
  2. Repair the indicated faults or repeat the test. Be sure to disconnect the "switched jumper" and turn the ignition switch to the "OFF" position before attempting repairs. Disconnecting components and wiring harness connectors with the ignition switch in the "RUN" (ON) position may set additional codes and cause permanent damage to the Motronic system.
  3. To erase the fault code memory turn the ignition switch to the "RUN" (ON) position.
    1. Perform a test sequence up to a code 11
    2. Depress the switched jumper for more than 10 seconds
The "CHECK ENGINE" indicator should be "ON" and all fault codes should have been cleared.

Lexia 3 PP2000 ECU Fault Code P0299 P1351 P1164 P2562(solved)

Here is the solution for fault codes P0299 P1351 P1164 P2562 read by auto scanner Lexia-3 pp2000. Hope it helps you also.
Device I use:
Lexia 3 interface
Current situation:
The ECU faults are, loss of turbo boost under load and intermittent problems with starting. I've changed the glow plugs but not yet tested to see if the heater relay is working.
Checked my DPF load and it says 65% with last regen ~650km's ago. Additive levels are good.
Seems the turbo boost issue is something to do with the boost solenoid?
Once I get these issues sorted, I can de-fap it.
PS. I've sorted the clutch and brake switch issues.
The planet screenshots:
lexia 3 pp2000 faults -1 lexia 3 pp2000 faults -2 lexia 3 pp2000 faults -3 lexia 3 pp2000 faults -4 lexia 3 pp2000 faults -5
Cleared the codes and ran it up the dual carriageway to get the fault.
The clutch one is from turning the car off/on while moving when the cruise control was on.
Got the P2562 and a EGR one (p0490).
Car also did a regen recently and is currently at 5% load, at least I know that system is working.
