"The first time I used this reader it did read out the trouble code. However the next time I tried it to see if the code cleared it just blinked several Icons and indicated a yellow light which may or may not mean a possible problem. I tried it on another vehicle which it is supposed to work on and it did the same yellow light with blinking icons trick. I loaded the included software on my laptop to see if it would connect to the reader. My laptop said it was connected but the program just sat there and did nothing. I read the extremely short directions with the reader and on the CD included. Both are no help at all, I went to the readers website, again no help at all. So if you want a reader which may or may not readout an OBD code so you can do a search on the internet to find out what it means this is the reader for you."
Pros: It did read out the OBD Code once
Cons: Software and Directions are a Joke

"I'm impressed with unit. My mech has a unit that cost over $1000 dollars. This unit does almost as much, for a whole lot less."
