Default XC60 ODB codes

Hi,

Iíve just invested in a Bluetooth OBD dongle and the car scanner app on my iPhone. It all worked first time, the data looks interesting and one of the parameters of DPF soot which is what I was after being able to access.

The code reader however shows about 6 error codes - but I canít find an easy reference list to decipher them. Is there a definitive list anywhere, or should I just post them up and hope someone will take pity and decipher them for me?

I havenít reset the codes as yet, it comes up with a warning about doing it with the engine running or not - any thoughts?

Thanks - Rob

sometimes it is best leaving the codes , they can't be important unless you get a message in the dash with the general warning light on ..

I'm impressed that you were able to access the DPF loading value via OBD2, what app are you using please?

I didn't think that iPhones connected to dongles via Bluetooth?

Itís the Viecar Bluetooth 4 LE dongle - from Amazon, it was £19.99. The app is the car scanner app from the App Store. This is the 2nd dongle I bought, I couldnít get the eBay one to work so sent it back and got a refund & bought this one. Iím using an iPhone 7 with latest iOS.
