Yes but even the basic scanners communicate using many of the common protocols CAN, VPW, PMW, ISO & KWP2000. A basic scanner should at least "talk to" the EOBD equipment and read the generic codes as long as it meets the standards. We are talking about total failure to communicate here, not failure to communicate with some of the modules.

I think Chrysler use the ISO 9141 Standard which is the same as most European manufacturers but not sure about this.

I've just had an email back from my ebay seller who has told me that the U480 scanner doesn't have the right protocol for Chrysler 300C's so has offered me a refund.

Its odd though because it was this thread that prompted me to buy the U480 http://www.300cforums.com/forums/eur...er-needed.html

It is odd as I used my U480 to get my 02 sensor fault codes and clear them on my 300 and others have used them too. What I have noticed is both of the cars on here that it hasn't worked on are 2007's. Others have used them on 2006 and 2008's with no problems.

My U480 ebay reader works on my 2007. Also got a USB adapter for the laptop and that seems to talk to it ok. I've tried it on BMW and Chev all ok. Strange, still sounds like you've got an iffy one.

I don't think it's a "iffy" one because it's worked fine on 3 other cars but the seller on eBay has emailed me saying that it's not the correct protocol for Chrysler 300C's and has offered a refund so it's gone back in the post now.
I will now look for an alternative scanner/code reader.

Strange, I guess the only way to be sure is find somewhere you can try before you buy. Most of these things are ebay/web based but there must be some shops selling them.
