So you posted a deal then pointed out it can be bought cheaper.

Original Poster

No, it's cheaper now than previous expired post hence reposted...not sure if we can we unexpire deals

Regards, one of these scanners can save you big bucks if you own a post 2002 car. Garages charge anything up to £50 to read and reset codes - it takes 30 seconds with one of these. Saved me a fortune over the last year or so with temperamental 52 plate merc.
I paid £13 for mine, so < £12 is a good price. Heat!

Got this same one it's great but it's only for diesel after 2004,even though connection same.

It saved me a fortune on my last 2 cars with faults, u can get code up, tinker and change part, reset fault and then see of it comes back. It can't go deep deep into the diagnosis but it can get the error code and reset it which Is worth it alone as you save the initial £50 fee usually charged

ramiuk1 do you know what scanner will work for a 2002 diesel Passat.
cheers

Apparently all the autel maxiscans on amazon are fakes, but at this price it's still a useful bargain.

Cue the it will blow your car up brigade .
Mine has worked on audi 01 plate , nissan 04 plate .

are these the same ones on ebay for £8 with free postage ?

am really in need of a code reader but cant find one cheap thats original autel

i want to reset abs and service /eroor codes can any1 recommend a cheap one under £30

Does this specific unit only work on diesel's? Have a 3 yr old petrol touran that it might be worth buying for.

Sorry to be asking specifics but I have a 2003 Merc 180 Classic Kompressor, I only do about 3000 a year and refuse to pay for a full service just because its 12 months since the last service so I want to reset the service message that is on permanently, would this do the job.. I hope so thanks

This isnt that good get the one with the built in manual for £2.50 more far better value

you don`t need anything..JUST:

1) Turn the electronic Key in the starter switch to position 2
2) Call up the Trip ODO screen using the two lower left buttons on the steering wheel
3) Use the two upper left buttons, navigate the the FFS indicator screen [Wrench icon]
4) Press the RESET knob on the instrument cluster for 4 seconds
5)The multifunction display will read "Do You Want To Reset Service Interval? - Confirm By Pressing R"
6) Press the RESET knob on the instrument cluster again for 4 seconds until the BEEP sounds.
7) Done. The new interval will show

If you prefer to have a genuine Autel unit, the UK distributor sells the AL301 on ebay for £19.99 + £5.75 P&P.

See my post above for a genuine Autel unit. It won't reset ABS though and you don't need it to reset service lights.

Can anyone help as I have a 2002 dci clio. If this doesn't work what will?

I found that other one just as I was going to order the first one, so the only difference is the slightly more expensive one has built on Manual is that all ??

Plus the second unit does not list the car manufactures it works with like the first

Could I correct the mileage with this, had a new engine fitted and mileage is a little off?

I used to do Diagnostics as part of my job, with scanners costing thousands of pounds, ABS codes can be reset, but they reset themselves if the fault isn't present. 9/10 ABS codes are down to wheel speed sensors, normally a bump up a curb knackers them, if you have a code reader that does ABS, it will at least tell you which one is knackered.

Great, ive got a 2006 type r, nothing wrong with it but you never know. Hondas dont break anyway.

When the "spanner" light appeared permanently on my dashboard I took my Vauxhall Zafira (B) diesel to my main dealer. They said DPF Filter and Glowplugs needed changing and it would be £300. Being an engineer myself (but now just too lazy to service my own cars) I knew this to be untrue. After giving the car a good run on the motorway I borrowed one of these devices from a mate, plugged it in, and it showed "No faults". I used the device to turn the spanner light off. Saved me £300.

Just a word of warning as I bought one of these recently and it doesn't read on my friends Vauxhall Insignia (59 plate) or my friends BMW 330d (56 Plate)

It's works fine on my 60 plate Octavia VRS

Yes - that's a lovely bit of community advice in action. Nice to see. :-)

OR.... get a Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner that connects to your Android phone and have fun with loads of OBD2 Apps on Google Play Store :

To everyone asking what cars are compatible with this, ALL modern cars in the UK are compatible.

The EU made it mandatory that petrol cars from 2001 onwards, and diesel cars from 2004 onwards, are OBD2 compatible. In the US it was 1996 (i think), so some manufacturers used the standard way back then. Look for a well concealed port about 1.5" wide hidden away under your steering wheel or dashboard somewhere.

It works by checking things that your ECU has recorded (not just fault codes), and newer cars have more things recorded. This means older cars with OBD2 will only read out limited information, but newer cars can provide a LOT more info.

You can also get bluletooth OBD2 adapters for about the same price as this on eBay, they connect to your mobile phone (Android is best for this, forget iphones because they block the bluetooth), if you get a bluetooth one and use it on an Android phone, you can download an app called Torque Pro that reads all sorts out of your ECU, and it will reset fault codes like this tool will too. To be honest though, it's a bit of a novelty and you will hardly use it after the first few times.

If you have an Android device, I'd get a bluetooth one from ebay, but if you have an iphone, this is your next best option.

ok, complete noob question - but would this show up any error codes or highlight any issues, even if my engine management light is not on ?

to you folk in the know...much for an abs, srs read and resetting unit ?
links please :-)
