or you can just get one like this.


https://www.amazon.com/OBD2-Scanner-...s=obd2+scanner


I have several scanners both handheld and software. This one was my first and gets the job done with no fuss. once you get the code just search for it on the internet to see what the problem is.

You can pay a small amount to unlock manufacturer specific PIDs (parameters).


Forgot about that app. For the record the adapter I linked to above also works with DashCommand. I also tested it with Carista and that works too. Carista lets you change dealer set options like disabling the annoying seatbelt warning because a wet leaf blew in the window or disable DRLs, change the volume of the keyless entry and stuff like that.

I agree - keep it economical and simple.

Removed the dash. It wasn't horrible. I was expecting worse. I'll be chasing electrical and smaller items for the next while. I'm going to see about removing the Evap core.






Edit: I'm looking at removing the Evap core because I did the AC delete. I'd like to try and finish the job. I looked at it briefly tonight but saw no easy of doing this. I'll do more research.

Well itís nearly twice the price with less function. Simple in functions but not necessarily in usage. Iíve had a basic scanner for 15 years but these days I donít even bother with it and instead just use the BT adapter. Actually I just leave it plugged in most of the time. If I ever want to monitor something I just run the app on my phone while Iím in route and up come a bunch of gauges without even plugging in a cable. I donít even need to be in the car crouched under the dash with a 6in cable trying to read the screen.

^I leave mine in all the time too. It came flying out at track once so it's zip tied now.

While you have that apart, see if you can figure out what would be buzzing in the upper left corner of the dash, at almost any speed, so I'm sure it's not vibration related. It stops buzzing with any pressure on the gas pedal.

I'm pretty sure I know the one you're talking about. Just smack it with an open palm!

It's large! But it's not my garage...It's a corner I've been allotted at my workplace.

I was kidding. There's buzzing, creaks and various noises all over when gutted.


I'll bet it's something vibrating. I had that under the keyless entry box on the read deck. I got really lucky finding it.
