    I have bought an obd2 wifi reader, don't work with any app.

    Van has an obd port but is it obd2 compatible? Or is it obd1?

    Its compatible but it might not like the kit your using, some cars are funny with diagnostics and only work with certain machines.

    Book a slot with a garage that specialises in Bosch diagnostics.....they'll have a number of machines that will be able to communicate with yours......much better than chancing your own purchases, I think. (I've found that to my cost :eek: - bought a scanner that 'must work'......does it hell.)
    They'll also have contacts or the knowledge to clone your spare key and provide you with a replacement.

    You dont know really, most cars are fine but some are fussy. A dedicated vauxhall tool may be your only option, they are available for little money these days.
