No scanner is needed; Just following the manuals procedure, pushing buttons on your car, is all that's required to reset things.

I see (thanks to this forum) that this is indeed an option. I will likely still acquire a scanner as I do all my own work on our cars and the XE will not be under warranty forever.

Be sure the scanner you pick works with your model. The ICarsoft i930 I bought won't read the ECU on my 2004 XJ8--their tech support has never gotten back to me after multiple tries.

Default iCarsoft LR V2.0 scanner

I looked thru this whole Thread and found no mention of this scanner. Plenty about the iCarsoft i930 but I need to be able to chase an airbag problem which really cuts out a lot of scanners. This one at $145 on ebay seems to be a good deal, ($250 i think on the corporate website) as it does so much more than the i930. My only problem is that no one has mentioned it and I was hoping to get some feedback from someone who has used one. For the record I have a 2002 XKR convertible.

the icarsoft i930 i have resets the drivers air bag light on my 07 xj8 vdp.
It goes on for a while, i clear it several times, then it stops a while.
Will pass E Chech with it on as long as smog readings on scanner pass.
Then the battery can be disconnected, so it can be looked at.
Hoping its just a dirty clock spring connector, & cleaning it will keep the light from coming back on.
For an inexpensive scanner it works well.

Thanks for your reply, I have a code 44 which is the airbag impact sensor. I did change the sensor for a used one which looks good but still have the code. Someone said I may need to clear that old code which I have yet to do as I do not have a scanner. I wanted to be able to look at airbag codes in case it is not just a simple code clearing that is required. Plus as the car is 16 years old and who knows what has happened to it over those years however I do know it sat for about 2 years before I got it and that is never good for low voltage electrical connections so I expect other codes from all over the car and want to be able to see as many of them as possible without spending a fortune on a scanner.

Does your i930 read the ECU on your 2004 XJ8? I have the same model as you, but my i930 will not read the ECU. It reads everything else and will clear anything it finds. However, I don't know what tests I am missing due to the ECU read failure. Their tech support has never responded to my complaint even though the woman who answers their phone promises otherwise.

The scanner tells me what seems more info on the 07 than the 04.
But the issue for the air bag light is on the 07.
The scanner has more info or functions than i can make full use of, at the present time.
ECU may be what i read about the early XJ8's, as not being as readable as the later models are.
Hoping to avoid any serious issues more than normal wear & tear on a (hopefully) somewhat pampered luxury car, with a hundred thousand miles on the clock.
Not worth the price to fix, so trade it off while it still rides,runs well, & looks great.
The appearance of what it is still jumps out at you if in decent shape, a major selling point i'm sure..
