    How much is a 12V, 10,000,000 candlepower spotlight to put in the back window so you can hit high-beam-forgetter-drivers back?

    The code scanner looks okay for CEL diagnostics, but I want one that can read the SRS ECU, ABS ECU, BCM, etc. A neighbor scanned my daughter’s Forte Koup this weekend, using a Snap-on Modis Edge scanner, to see why the SRS light was on, and picked up B1515 (Buckle Switch Driver Defect). He cleared the code, and I sprayed tons of contact cleaner into the buckle. We’ll see if the light stays off – if it comes back on, I’ll be buying a new buckle assembly (around $65).

    The Modis Edge? It’s discontinued, but you can find used ones on eBay for $2300 or so – ouch. Man, it’s nice. Live data, and SureTrack, that tells you what other techs did that resolved the same codes on similar vehicles.

      Man… that sure sounds nice! $2300 is a little more than just a shade tree mechanic’s tool but it sure is nice.

      There are hand held consumer grade that can read live data and codes for other modules. Many have different levels so depending on how much you spend you can access more and more modules.

      A professional level option that is affordable for the serious DIY’er is AutoEnginuity Like the consumer level tools you get more features for more money. They have it set up that you buy the base which gets you access to most modules and packs for enhanced access for specific brands or group of brands that replicates the vast majority if not all of that brand’s Factory scan tool. For example you can program transponder keys, do bidirectional control, or things like change between the different factory tire sizes and/or axle ratios, turn on/off options like DRLs ect.

      The other options are the bluetooth/wifi dongles and a good program often times brand specific.

      I use a OBDLink unit, the software that comes with it is good for the basic powertrain but for extra money you can get extra functionality. I haven’t looked into the specifics of it as I use FORScan which is a ford specific program that gives you essentially full IDS (Ford’s factory tool) capability. For example on the MKZ I just purchased it took about a minute to enable the ability to enter an address into the Nav while the vehicle is in motion. I’ve seen some other mfg specific apps for Android. Don’t know if their is a H/K one or not, but worth looking into.

    This site is awkward to use now because Amazon has plugged into it.

    This is a paid add by Amazon.

    So much for the TRUTH.

    If TTAC’s owners want to generate cash ensure the software is compatible and always ensure like this article it is clearly spelt out that its an advertisement.

      Its really not so bad, all auto related stuff. I am guessing this site would cease to exist if it had to rely on donations from readers to keep the lights on. Necessary evil, plus, I may just buy that power inverter.

      Besides, was reading Jalopnik over the weekend and they were plugging 50% off Adam and Eve $ex toys in an actual article devoted to the subject. I think TTAC wins this round of the journalistic integrity awards.

    The Gooloo listing is worth looking at if only to see what their definition of a yacht is.
