I'm looking for an OBDII reader.
The ones I've seen so far are pretty expensive.

Isn't there one that I can run on my PocketPC or Palm that just gives me the code(s) ?
I can look up the codes on the web.....

Any suggestions ?

Rob.

So far I found this:

and this:
http://www.obdmeter.com/index.html

BTW, can't you reset the CEL by disconnecting the battery, pumping the brake a couple times and leaving it for 30 mins ? I know it resets the ECU, not 100% sure if it will erase faultcodes though...

I bought a reader for about $129. It pays for itself in 2 uses (if you had to take it to a shop). Also Autozone reads them for free...............

Have a look at this. Software for your palm that gives you more than just codes. I've got a former version of it and am very satisfied.
If things have'nt changed, Dan Harrison will promptly answer all your questions.

Second that. With the beta software (v2.3) you will even read A/F sensor in newer Subs (2000+).
Need a laptop of course...
