Previous hot deal now with lower price, thought I would repost! This is pretty much standard equipment for diagnosis nowadays.

Which cable is that?
What is this please?
My brother has something similar to this. This tells u the fault code when its connected- I believe(sorry if Im wrong , I'm a women) Lol.
*connected somewhere in the car, I think.
Can anybody point me to a good and hopefully free android app that works with this pls?
i have this and it works fine, focus 2002 and a audi a3 2010, used it a few times before I got bored, and used it once to clear a fault code on my car when I forgot to tighten the air in take pipe properly. fair price, actually paid £4 for mine years ago.

OBD II-ELM327 App on Google Play Store is OK not brilliant, play.google.com/sto…7en But there is a Torque Lite version for free which is also OK play.google.com/sto…ree But if I was you I would spend the 2.95 and get the full fat version of Torque play.google.com/sto…que as it will pay for itself the first time you use it, I've had it for two and a half years and its excellent the guy regularly updates it for new data for vehicles and for new versions of Android.
world fine with honda and torque app
Used something similar on a skoda octavia vrs.. They work fine, will allow you to read and clear fault codes, gives you real time engine information too, very useful bits of kit.. Mine has saved me quite a lot of money in diagnosing issues with my car, and family members cars, VAG group, Renault, BMW.. Most cars have an obd port, just google your car and obd to find where it is, and use android torque as it's by far the best..
Must be noted that these work for basic codes but certain codes require different software like Vagcom for example. I've got one of these and also a cable and have vagcom on my laptop.
Can I use this to clear a fault?

I bought one last year. Didn't work with my 2005 Vauxhall Signum despite it apparently being ODBII compliant. Contacted the sellers and got a refund (of item, not postage from China).
It may have been a fault with the unit. I checked some of the feedback on Amazon (where I bought from) and googled the unit, and some have had issues. I managed to connect Bluetooth but unit didn't send any data.
I then bought a different ODBII scanner with cable rather than Bluetooth and that one has been excellent - got me out of a scrape or two.

I don't know about your make / model, but mine clears faults (using Torque app) on a 2004 car, so you should be fine

My mechanic friend who has a fancier one than this couldn't clear my DPF fault code on a diesel Ts2

Had to get reset from main dealer. Robbery. Check the Mazda Owner forum for info.

works flawlessly with my Smart Car & with my Mondeo - Torque is the free android app I use. Bought the device from e-bay for similar price a year ago. Not sure if it was the cause or not - but had a flat battery after car was standing for a fortnight - so I remove it from the ODB2 socket when not in use now.

And sell it off ? (_;)
I recommend everyone has one of these in their household. Paired with an Android device and the Torque app it's what the garages charge hundreds for in diagnosis
I bought this aswell as the WiFi version as iOS uses 'Engine Link' app what works great @£3.99. Cleared faults on a Audi 2.0 tdi 2008,Focus 2001,Honda Civic Type R. But didn't work on a Golf 2.0 tdi 2004,BMW 530d 2002 so will need to check with seller so you can atleast get a refund ;-)
as most have said above. good for reading faults , clearing dtc's. works with my Vauxhall. these are clones of the elm327 hence cheap price but most do the job fine. with torque you can read most ECU data I.e turbo,egr status, power, braking etc. not to be used for ECU configuration/flashing. have a wired version for flashing ECU's with Vauxhall s/w.
Got one used it on a Rover75 turbo diesel, 2003 plate. Gives lots of info using Torque free app.
Had no engine warnings so cant comment on clearing those.
Had airbag fault but torque didnt recognise that, maybe just engine faults?
Info is dependant on the car its reading, id imagine newer cars give out more diagnostic info than older cars.
Tested these on:
BMW 3 series (E46)
BMW 5 series (E39)
Jaguar XJR (X350)
Land Rover freelander (2010)
and a friend uses his with a Vauxhall Signum 1.9 diesel (same engine used in vectras, saabs etc)

Exactly..
Used a similar one to clear a oil sensor light on a 57 plate Honda Civic. For some reason the garage couldn't do it .
Is it completely different to this one on Amazon - amazon.co.uk/gp/…-21

Fix the oil sensor or related issue then the light won't reappear.

Akways baffles me why individuals and garages clear faults then consider it fixed. Fix the damn fault thats causing the fault code to generate, then its fixed.

Then theres peeps that buy cheapo crappy cars give em a quick clean make them run, clear fault codes and slap it on side of a road for quick profit to an unsuspecting victim.
any recommendations for the wired variant please
Has anyone used one with an iphone or laptop, and if so what program/app did you use? I got one last time and have struggled to do anything useful with it
Got this last time it was posted same seller but came from China. Arrived quite fast, Works on my tdci 04 mondeo but won't read the abs!
I prefer the smaller ones on eBay from a UK seller for a few quid more. Get it much sooner. Even HK or China eBay sellers seem to be about a week quicker than DX these days for me.

If these stop working it's usually because the bluetooth module is only soldered on by 4 pads on one side, instead of all pins both sides. The vibration can cause it to come off.

The case on the smaller ones is a bitch to open but soldering the other pins (if you can solder surface mount) or adding some glue might help it to last.
Had one of these very models for over 3 years, works brilliantly.
I have one of these and the Torque Pro app - I have used it on my Range Rover and other cars including Vauxhall Signum and couple of work trucks all fine - should come with the car these are so useful
Same item can be bought cheaper on eBay. Currently £4.90 delivered there.
Have the cable and Bluetooth version. Brill on Mazda but reading on merc not as precise with diagnostic.
anything for mercedes?
This is fantastic. I leave it connected to my 2005 astra to get live data via "torque" (android)

I have cleared numerous fault codes and narrowed down on intermittent faults saving me hundreds of pounds in garage fees.

£5 is a steal
