For petrol motors try Diacom software or handheld tool at Rinda.com.

Don't know about diesels if that is what you need. Maybe they can give you a lead.

RIBase
It's not available outside of the dealer network as far as I know

It's a shame the manufacturers aren't forced to have standardised OBD ports like on cars.

Being able to read fault codes on our cars saves a whole lot of diagnosis time.

On the KAD series, the system will show a fault code by flashing a pattern on a led at the helm station. The user handbook identifies the fault from a table. I realise things move on and change but it may be worth checking out if you haven't already done so.
