Diagbox is a dealer diagnostic software for Peugeot and Citroen cars. It allows you to perform various tests, coding, programming and calibration on your vehicle. Diagbox V6 01 is the latest version of the software, released in 2012. However, it requires a patch to work with clone interfaces and to avoid online updates that can deactivate the software.
In this article, we will show you how to install and use patch V6 for Diagbox V6 01. This patch works with Windows XP only and is compatible with most clone interfaces such as PSA XS Evolution and Lexia3. You will need the following files:
Diagbox V6 01.iso (1.03 GB)
patchV6.exe (7.5 KB)
Diagbox Update V6 01 to V6 19.exe (195.27 MB)
You can download these files from various sources on the internet, such as MHH AUTO forum or torrent sites. Make sure you scan them for viruses before using them.
Step 1: Install Diagbox V6 01
Mount the Diagbox V6 01.iso file on a DVD or a virtual drive using a software such as Daemon Tools or PowerISO. Run the setup.exe file and follow the instructions on the screen. You will need to enter a serial number during the installation. You can use any random number such as 1234567.
Step 2: Apply patch V6
Copy the patchV6.exe file to C:\\AWRoot\\bin\\fi\\cache\\ folder. Run it and you should see a success message. This will modify some files in the Diagbox folder to make it work with clone interfaces and to disable online updates.
Step 3: Update Diagbox to V6 19
Run the Diagbox Update V6 01 to V6 19.exe file and enter the password scary01 when prompted. This will update your Diagbox software to the latest version available. You will need to activate it again after the update.
Step 4: Activate Diagbox
Run Diagbox from your desktop shortcut and click on activation (the finger with the hand icon). You will see two fields on the screen. In the first one, enter 12345678901234567890123456789011 and in the second one enter 02FFFFFFF. Click OK and you should see a message that your tokens are installed and PP2000 and Lexia are activated.
Step 5: Connect your interface and use Diagbox
Connect your clone interface to your computer via USB port and wait for the drivers to be installed automatically. You can also use PSA Interface Checker software to change the firmware of your interface if needed. Run Diagbox again and select your vehicle model and type. You can now perform various functions on your car using Diagbox.
Note: If your interface does not see your car or just identifies the VIN, you may need to use PSA Interface Checker software to change the firmware of your interface. You can also use TLCD utility by vadimus_ca (idea by mudrec1980) to disable the code request for telecoding.
Step 6: Troubleshoot common problems
Some common problems that you may encounter while using Diagbox are:
The software does not start or crashes. This may be due to a corrupted installation or a conflict with other software on your computer. Try to reinstall Diagbox or run it in compatibility mode for Windows XP SP3.
The software asks for online updates or activation. This may be due to a wrong patch or an accidental click on the update button. Do not update Diagbox online or it will deactivate your software. Use patch V6 again to fix the problem.
The interface does not communicate with the car or shows errors. This may be due to a faulty interface, a bad connection, a wrong firmware or a wrong protocol. Check your interface with PSA Interface Checker software and change the firmware if needed. Make sure your interface is connected properly and use the correct protocol for your car (CAN or VAN).
Step 7: Enjoy Diagbox
Diagbox is a powerful and versatile software that can help you diagnose and repair your Peugeot and Citroen cars. It can also perform coding, programming and calibration functions that are not available in other software such as PP2000 and Lexia. With patch V6, you can use Diagbox with clone interfaces and avoid online updates that can ruin your software. Follow the steps above to install and use Diagbox V6 01 with patch V6 and enjoy your software.
