Ok hope someone can help.

Connected Lexia to car and would not automatically reconise the vehicle, so inputted the vin manually.

Went to read fault could but when could through the tests would just be saying "NO DIALOGUE" tried quit a few time and the disaster while rerunning a test the red warning light came on dash saying "ENGINE FAULT STOP THE VEHICLE".

Now the car wont start and Lexia will not communicate with the car.

Any Help Greatly appreciated.

Originally joined the forum way back with a C4 VTS and then a DS4, the car im having the problem with is my DS5.

The DS5 is probably too new for lexia. What happens if you use diagbox?

Whenever I've had a problem with DiagBox and my C4 not behaving I've just disconnected the battery for a couple of minutes (following the correct procedure which is detailed somewhere on this site), then once hooked back up they generally cooperate (sometimes it automatically picks up the VIN, other times I have to put it in manually. Yay for consistency!).

Since you posted this a week ago and haven't popped back yet, I'm hoping you got it all sorted!
