How to read Check Engine OBDII codes and diagnostics?
Posted 13 August 2003 - 12:19 PM
Are these options so expensive that it may be easier even in the long run to have one of the auto parts store chains read the codes for me?
My Check Engine light came on last week, although the car still runs like nothing is offbeat.

as far as the hardware readers, be prepared to spend at least $200 for a basic model, $400 and up for more advanced.
your best bet may be to go to some of the auto stores (such as autozone) which scan codes for free...

I'm in Canada and one of the auto chain stores recently had a sale on a generic OBDII reader ($250 reduced to $150 Canadian). I picked one up. I haven't even taken it out of the package yet. I don't think they get much lower than that as the prior post indicates.
