Yes I do think he means DIY. I also think it's a great idea.

It's a great idea. Many, many people come here looking for something exactly like this. This is a very valuable resource for not only self-service help, but somewhere we can point to when questions arise.

I would like to see it as a stand-alone section. You've posted this in the GT sub-section, and I think DIY is a complete all-inclusive subject. I'm hoping you pull the trigger on this!

i completely agree with having a DIY section. i am surprised that there wasn't one before. but i also agree to keep it sub-divided into the specific car/model. project will vary greatly depending on the model etc. so keep it separate for GT's.

unfortunately, you need a special (expensive) tool for this. but if anyone else has discovered a "hack", please share!

1. Take it to your local AutoZone
2. Say that you've a check engine light and need some help. A rep will come out to the parking lot with a OBD scanner
3. This OBD scanner is like another, so it can also delete error codes
4. tell the AutoZone guy you'll pay him $10 for him to delete it. he will
5. done deal

it's better and faster than going to a mechanic and paying more than 10 bucks. ppl at autozone arent supposed to delete codes but they can, and do, do it

hey mobile. i actually own an OBD II scanner. but i can not remove the code. it requires a special tool that only maserati and ferrari dealers have. unless the autozone one has the tool that i am not aware of. have you actually done this?
