Code Reader Tool (ODB II)

Looking for a decent OBD II tool....not for my truck but for our other vehicles, though I assume it would work on any OBD II equipped vehicle. If you need to know makes and model for the tool, the primary ones would be a.

2005 Chevy Trailblazer
2002 Dodge Ram 1500
others as I need to work on them...

Thanks,
Neel

Cant he just get the AE without the enhanced packages? will this not allow him to scan vehicle for general things?


walmart sells cheap scanners alonge with harbor freight, autozone and others.. you are spending money for something that can be rear for free at a place like autozone vs going with a AE that will pay for its self if you do your own repairs..

If you buy AE from ITP IIRC he is $50 cheaper than direct from AE

A "Generic OBD II" tool will be just that, Generic. It will do only the most basic of scanning, will give no "vehicle specific" data and will not be money well spent in the long run. The first time you need a tool that can delve into the brand specific sensors or tests, the generic tool becomes a let down.

I'm not aware of another tool that will give you the level of access the AE Domestic Bundle does with Ford/GM/Chrysler vehicles for that price. I realize it's steep for those on a budget, but what do the diag fees at your local dealership/shop run if you have to take the vehicle to them and how quickly might it pay for itself if you can do those scans on your own.
