scantool

I picked one up at autozone for $150. I looked around on the net and didn't find anything cheaper.

so that would be about $250cdn.

i know it reads engine management codes. but does it read the antilock brake system (abs) as well?

Hey Joe Villa,

The scanners we have at my work are made by OTC, they are the best profesional series scanners you can buy. However they are very expensive! Thousands of dollars, especially in Canada.

They work great!!!! I play with them all the time. One of the perks of working at a auto service garage.

no thanks red. must be nice to play around with it though. but all i want is just a little hand held device that you plug in my truck's com port.

i've been looking around and the cheapest one i found is $266cdn... about $160us. i could still find something cheaper.

I don't think the scanner that I have can do abs. I just looked in the book that it came with and didn't see anything about it. The book also didn't have any abs codes in it either.:dunno:
