I would like to purchase one of these but I'm reluctant due to what I've experienced with the knock off units in the past. Basically, I've found that the coverage holes are different with each model year car. Not particularly a big deal until you rely on it to program your NCR. I saw Ratarossa had good luck on his 360 using the X431. I have an Autel that gives very accurate reads and on my 2005 but has coverage holes on the 2002 and 2007 F1 cars.
Has anyone had experience on the 2005 with F1 parameter setting using the X431?
That is my concern too Erik. That is why I was waiting to try the harbor freight one before buying it. I looked at the Autel too but my friends that are mechanics are way out of state so I can't drive there to see it's limits.
The OBD-Star will let you reset service lights on GT / QPV and QPVI / Levante
Other devices will let you read data from some of the other sub systems. The validity of those values is often called into question. Further trying to write those values can be, well, expensive
