Question HDS Diagnostics

Need to reset abs/vsa lights on 11 plate type s gt (11 plate).
Will the HDS Software do this?

If so does anybody have a link to the right one?

Cheers guys 😄

HDS would definitely read these codes.

But - in case you didn't know - you'll also need the Honda Interface Module. This is the unit that connects to your car via the OBD2 connector and then also connects (via an RS-232 connection) to the PC running the HDS software.

Have you tried this... http://www.civinfo.com/forum/how/704...ial-tools.html

Not recommending this one in particular but lots on eBay, e.g... Universal Honda/Acura Diagnostic CAN BUS System HDS KIT | eBay

cheers for that, it says in the listing

"HDS(Honda & Acura Diagnostic System)is the latest diagnostic equipment for Honda vehicles. Diagnostic functions available for vehicles of HONDA/ACURA from year 1992 to2009."

will this work on my car as it was built in 2011?

Good question, but I don't know. But I would guess it'll work if you have an i-CTDi engine, as they all had the same Bosch EDC16 ECU. But, in that case, I haven't got aq clue why they only say it's OK for Hondas up to 2009!

Others don't mention what age vehicles they'll work with, e.g...HONDA Acura CAN BUS Diagnostic System HDS HIM Kit | eBay

I guess you could ask the sellers?

Ok, thats similar to the one i have, although i got mine secondhand from someone in Germany with an old laptop included. As far as i know, the HIM should work on all 8th gen Civics, although it does apparently not work with 9th gen Civis because they need HDS Version 3, which does not work together with HIM. You would need SPX-MVCI für HDS Version 3.

Just ask the seller, he should know, and check the return policy.
