OBD2 reader Ebay

Hi guys

I picked up a $15 OBD2 reader off EBAY from China. Comes with software and USB interface. Plugs into the OBD2 port
that is behind a little door beside the trunk release button.. I configured it and plugged it and it shows live engine
diagnostic data, codes and the ability to erase codes. The app I used had 8 pages of data you could view.
I had a U1139 - error which is not really a code at all and I erased it. No other codes reported and I figured
thats since the beast runs like a top. Its a pretty cool tool for $15 plus your laptop.

Cheers !

For $15 you can't go wrong. And if it works that's even better! Thanks for sharing.
