It’s the only one I could get hold of,I’ve spent bloody ages finding it.
I just need a tidy diagnostic tool for the HV side,my snapon will only do the normal OBD.

VCX Nano along with GM GDS2 from AliExpress works well for me.

The battery coolant is done with some sort of special vacuum device, my dealers one was (is?) broken so Bellingers have done the required 5year service. Requires the valves sequencing with the service tool as well I think. If you have to do the battery coolant I'd give them a bell.

The Volts (same car) in the US are rated at 150,000 miles I believe for the coolant change.

I need it to do the battery coolant chsnge.

I think that's the one I got, or very similar. The names are a bit confusing (at least they were for me before I figured this all out), the vxdiag but does not imply vauxhall. The device is manufactured by Shenzhen allscanner (or something similar) and can be licensed/programmed to replicate the genuine manufacturers hardware device. The vcxnano can be programmed to work with about 20 OEM software packages. So what I'm getting at is, it's important to buy one that is setup to work with gds2.

Nothing 'special' about it. It is just a standard way to refill coolant in modern cars to avoid air bubbles in complex engine block designs.

Shocked that they only have one, and that they haven't replaced it within hours.

There is so little professionalism left in this country.
