Members With Obdii/obd2 Code Readers

46 posts in this topic

I am "borrowing" this idea from another club I use.

As you know from time to time peoples cars can go wrong and throw a CEL/EML. (thats the engine management light coming on..

The light looks like this....

When this happens members come on here and ask what is wrong with their car only to be told they need to go to a garage to get the fault codes read. If we had a list of members and their locations of who had a code reader we could arrange a meet and get the codes read without the need for a garage, then the fault can be found and info on how to fix it can be sought in more detail.

I'll start the list...

Davy, perhaps we could pin it somewhere at the top of the boards. I have one and have already helped a member out over at the other club. Infact, I think I'm the only one registered as having one in Wales there!!! (It is bigger than you think, just in case anyone thinks I'm only a stone's throw from Cardiff!). I even sorted my Father-in-Laws Volvo T5 a couple of weeks ago!!

Anyhow, pop me down:

I'm up for this.

I've literally just bought one after my RAV4 developed a fault last night.

I'm in South Leicestershire.

Seems it may be my turbo. Fault code p1251. Typically no Haynes manual available til next month. Oh well it's by the seat of my pants then again.

As stated by someone earlier. You use it at your own risk. I won't be responsible for any errors caused by mis-reading the meter or other loss resulting from using it.

Mine cost me £50.00 which has paid for itself at first use as it would cost that the get it connected up at a garage / particularly a dealer.

And yes I can bodge quite well when needed. Again at own risk.

Malc. :rolleyes:

Hi great idea - I am a garage owner but I'm pleased to offer this assistance as club members have been really helpful with problems i've had.

We are based in Midlands, near Coventry - we have brand new Hanatech Multiscan - one of the best Asian tools on the market - call Mark on 024 7664 3030 and I will try my best to assist.
