Dear Membership,

Having made the decision to invest in one of these, imagine my surprise to see how many different makes, models, and prices there are out there. For simple diagnosis and resetting, is there a concensus among the membership as to which model is best?

Thanks!

I bought the lowest-priced unit I could find at Kragen's ($60), a simple read-and-reset, and it worked great.

I agree that the cheapies are as good as the higher priced unit for Maserati purposes since all you can do anyways is read the engine codes and reset the light.

The difference then is whether you go with a handheld unit or one that interfaces to a computer.

p.s. - if anyone is interested in a Duramatric pc based scanner for Porsche let me know - it's going on ebay shortly.

I'm very happy with the Actron unit I purchased. I use it about once every 6-8 weeks resetting the many innocuous codes that my Italian lady throws every once in a whie...

Follow-Up Question.....

Will these "universal" code reader/scanners clear other "idiot" lights? For example, after detailing my engine recently, the system threw the airbag light. Are these circuit specific, or part of the greater OBD2 system?

Thanks!
