New to me 2010 crd tourer. What code reader is everyone using?

Hi just a quick question, my newly acquired crd touring seems a bit slow to fire on cold morning, spin over quite a bit before catching, once started and warm - fine 😀
Just wondered what code reader is cheap n chearfull and will let me see if any heater plug codes are listed etc

I use the TorquePro App on my Android phone, in conjunction with the OBDLinkLX Bluetooth module. This will identify any glowplug and glowplug module faults, to which the CRD seems to be somewhat prone. There are plenty of cheap ELM327 modules around, but you tend to get what you pay for.

Mine isn't a CRD, but I have the same OBDLinkLX that he has. A great little Bluetooth OBD2 adaptor.
It also works incredibly well with some of the PC based code reading software for PC's like AppCar DiagFCA that can even tell you when a speaker in the car has been disconnected.
It will also allow you to make changes to some settings.

Some of the less expensive OBD2 bluetooth adaptors are not very accurate when it comes to showing things like the vehicle's voltage. so do yourself a favor and spend money on a good one.
I've seen cheap ones show 12.5 volts coming in from a running engine with a good alternator and battery, when the voltage was really 14.5. That 2 volts could make you buy a new alternator and battery that you did not need to buy.

Please come back and tell us what the solution to your problem was, so that others coming here can learn from it.

Cheers, think I've found torque pro on Google play, £2.99 and the Bluetooth adapter on eBay, about £60 depending, some from China cheaper but long delivery times. Car starts just seems to start better if I count to 5 after glow plug light has gone out.
Ta 😀

I was able to buy my OBDLinkLX on Amazon which was offering a £20 cashback at the time - so a good buy. It is fast and reliable and guaranteed to work with TorquePro. I started off with a cheap adaptor fom China, but it was slow and kept reporting comms errors. Starting problems are not uncommon with the CRD, even with good glowplugs. Also, pre-heating doesn't necessarily stop when the warning light extinguishes, but can continue for some time even after the engine has started. Just to play safe, I always wait for all the warning lights to extinguish before cranking.

I've read several positive comments regarding the APPCA-DIAGFCA software. Being new to computer software instead of hand held unit, what else besides a recommended OBD2 adapter, computer and the $49.95 software is needed?

Obdlink ordered, hopefully here this week, have downloaded torque pro 'lite' off Google play as it was free, see how it goes, then might upgrade to paid torquepro .

You need internet access. At least for the first use. Have not tried it without access to the internet since installing it.
You can get codes that are stored but not triggering the check engine light.
You can actually do some diagnostics.
And according to the info on their web page, they will soon be releasing a new version that supposedly will allow people to program keys.

New features:
Still in beta testing

FOB / Key programming for most of 2005-2013* models / some models up to 2018*
PIN Code Reading (needed eg. for keys programming) for most of 2005-2013* models / some models up to 2018*
Advanced Diagnostic Routines, eg. HVAC Actuator Calibration, ABS Initialization, PCM Replace, etc. *

Clearing DTC codes in all modules in one click
Vehicle Configuration Report - it's a report that shows all vehicle configuration settings in one document.
Faster connection process


Software updates once you buy it are free.

Got adapter today, tried the torque lite app, connected to each ok, checked for codes, no stored, no historic, could deliver data for boost etc, so it looking like could be car battery as it was showing 11.5v at ign on and slowly dropping and around 10v when cranking. BUT car is not being used at moment as waiting for DVLA to extract a digit from their bum and get the v5 to me so I can tax it, need v5 as currently on disabled rate and changing bro normal for me.
Thank you all for yet help, much appreciated :-)
