Low Cost Scanner does a great job
I ordered this to figure out what was causing the engine light to come on my minivan. Followed the directions, and it worked great. The book tells you the short answer, however, with the code in hand you can search on the internet for a very detailed description of what is causing your problem. The price was right, and it worked as advertised. I would recommend this device to anyone seeking a low cost scanner.
Easy to use!
Easy to use and works wonderfully with my Acura RSX. I have been seeing my check engine light come on and off and after going to AutoZone and finding out they don't have a checker for it, I decided to just go get my own. For such a cheap price, it's definitely a great investment that you can use for a lifetime (as long as you own a car).
This does not give you a description of why the engine light is on, but rather gives you a code. The code is so easy to look up. As long as you have a computer, you can easily just look up online and fix or bring your car into the shop without them charging you an arm and a leg just to tell you what the problem is and trying to rip you off by telling you other things are wrong with your car.
Definitely a good purchase and I would highly recommend it to those who like to fix up their car, or would like to know what's wrong with their car if they ever see the check engine light on.
A good (more than) basic scanner!
Communicates with ecu slower than my $60 scanner but does the job. For only $15 it not only erases codes but also shows I/M (emission) readiness. Truly exceeds my expectations! A good scanner for people who start doing their own car maintenance and repairs. Beware that shipping will take a long time: ordered 12/22/15, arrived 01/11/16.
