As a vehicle owner, it is a good idea to have a tool box in your car or garage. Apart of standard tools like spanner or screwdriver, one of the essential tools that you should have is the OBD2 scanner tool.
There are two basic categories of OBD-II scanners: 1. Code readers ; 2. Scan Tools;
OBD-II code readers are typically inexpensive, no-frills devices that can read and clear codes from any vehicle that is equipped with OBD-II. These devices have a few inherent limitations in that they typically lack any information on manufacturer-specific codes and offer limited (or no) access to other data.
OBD-II scan tools are more expensive, and they can offer a variety of different features. Scan tools may provide more access to or information about manufacturer-specific codes, provide extensive, customizable access to live and recorded data, and offer advanced troubleshooting information.
