Thought I would move this topic over to this thread too. I was recently cleaning up my garage here in Los Angles and found my Zytec ECU scan tool that I bought from Jaguar/Zytec back in the early 2000’s so that I could work on a couple of my customers XJRS’ at the time. Figured that it’s probably one of the last if not the last still around as it was pretty rare back then and someone out there might be looking for one.
I honestly don’t know how much it’s worth, has anyone on here ever seen one or does anyone out there still have one or know a place that still has one? It’s laptop based, I’ll post some pictures of it later. I would honestly love a chance at trying to use it again but I haven’t seen an XJRS in years
I’d ask for $1k. That seems to be roughly what a PDU or an IDS set up seems to go for on eBay (although my setups were WAY WAY WAYYYYYY cheaper). This assumes you still have the software available, and even better, the ancient laptop it runs on. The XJR-S scanner is a much rarer item, but much smaller audience. You can always drop the price if it goes unsold, or if the offers are lame, keep it.
Any PC with a genuine serial port should be able to run the software. All that is happening is that the software being used addresses the hardware directly as either ser1 or ser2 and that’s not the same as a software mapping of a USB port.
