Re: Diagnostics


That will allow u to read fault codes/reset your ecu and do live data logs
But you still need a laptop to plug it into.

Yeah these are good but if it is an EOBD fault code reader you dont always get the manufacturer specific fault codes out of the ECU. There are various tools out there some cheaper than others.
