    Does multiple things in diagnosing check engine light problems. I don't use their software because you have to pay to get code meanings. Go online and find those for free.

    This product works quickly...just plug it in, turn the key to "On" (don't start engine!), and the Equus 3030 will have all your car computer's data. Then you just take it to your computer, plug it into your USB port, and it will open the software (you must install it from CD) that shows you what the numeric codes mean. For instant detailed instructions on how to fix it, it costs US$14.99 (a bit more than the videos and info available "before my purchase" had said). You can use the software for up to 3 cars you register into their system, and use it up to 6 times per month for free. You can use this device to clear your "Check Engine" light once the problem is fixed, and if the problem reappears, you'll know you still have the problem (sometimes it takes several days for the light to come back on).

    You don't need to be a mechanic to save money with this. I'm no mechanic and I saved money. I had been thinking about getting one because I bought my kid an old chevy s10. Thought I might try to do some things myself to save some money (which remains to be seen). But... my 2006 Toyota automatic started shifting really hard. I thought I would have to have the transmission replaced. I order this online from Walmart, I think Sunday evening, and had it hand by Thursday. (The shipping must have been a mistake because it was almost nothing and shipped right to my house. But I digress.) I immediately stuck this scanner on my Toyota and got the code, which turned out to be some solenoid in the engine oil pan area, inside of course. I kept searching for the code and “hard shift” etc, on the internet until found an issue with the Toyota PCM/ECM module (whichever it is). It turns out that that the code from the scanner along with the hard shift issue was in a Toyota bulletin and they were replacing this module up to 96 months under warranty because it had to do with emissions and the gov’t was involved I believe (I don’t think they would do it for free otherwise. I saved myself several hundred dollars, I betting well over 500 bucks because the knock-offs online were going for $300, just for the part. This is why I say everyone should have one. Oh, not to mention that Toyota charges $89 just to “diagnose” the problem, which took all of 3 minutes to get the code. Any scanner tool would give me the code, but for the price and the features (which includes internet firmware upgrade via the supplied USB cable), you can’t go wrong with this model. I put it on my kid’s “new” s10 and it told me I have an issue with an air intake temperature thingy, which I have located. and will be replacing. It also lit the red LED saying this car will not pass emissions testing. Nice to know before going to get tested. There is a freeze frame feature that I am going to try on my kid’s truck and see what I can figure out. Seems to have a lot of features for the price.

    This OBDII code reader did everything it was promissing. Its very affordable and worked with no setup or modification. Plugging the unit into your computer the software will already know your vehicle make and model so the solution comes up automatically with no code input on the keyboard in fact I didnt have to type anything. The software also helped in narrowing the problem down to a specific part. Which if you take to your mechanic its a printout showing everything including voltages that the part is reporting, temperatures, status. One downside is it does try to upsell you more detailed information at a cost. The free information is enough though to help solve the problem and even when two parts make up the problem it was able to narrow it to the left side part which in this case saved me $40. It will not change any programs but will allow you to zero out trouble codes. It works and its very easy to use.

    • A. Yes, it will turn off the check engine light either before or after you make repairs just hit erase codes and hit yes. But if you dont fix the problem it will come back.

    • A. Yes. If you only want to clear the codes, you can disconnet your battery overnight and it will clear the codes. If you have a car radio that requires a code after losing it's memory, you should make sure you have that code first.

    • A. yes, it will clear codes but the codes will return after your obdII cycles while driving if repairs were not made, and you will not be able to pass a state vehicle inspection if your obdII hasnt cycled completely when inspected. It usually takes 40 to 60 miles to cycle.

    • A. Yes, it will clear the code using the button on the left. The code will come back if the problem has not been fixed. How soon it comes back is dependent on the vehicle and the problem. Also it will prioritize the problem codes from the most urgent to the least urgent if there are more than one.

    • A. Yes, you simply press the red button to clear all your codes. If the problem still exists, your "Check Engine" light will eventually come back on again. Sometimes it takes several days, as the computer has a program that usually includes several "cycles" that the engine must go through before it decides there is a problem.

    • A. Under the driver's dash,right above your knees,is the OBD II connection.It plugs right in to that.

    • A. It plugs into your computer port usually under the steering wheel or to the right or left of it. Looks like a flat about 2 inch long data port. You cannot insert the plug wrongly as its one way only. It gets power from your car. You turn the key to on BUT DONOT START THE CAR as the documentation warns. The reader gets the code which you will not understand at first like P001 I then erased the check engine warning and took the unit to my computer install the software and plug the reader into the usb port then software will read the code and VIN stored in the reader so it knows your car down to the engine model and year. It then looks on the internet for the problem solution and comes back with what P001 means in laymens terms. It even tells you voltages and other things valuable for narrowing the problem in my case it was an O2 sensor one of 4 and they can cost $40 or more per unit so when it said it was the left sensor after the cat on the exhaust I was able to buy the unit at a parts store and fix it myself saving hundreds. Im not sure if it will help you pass emissions but it will help you find out why your failing.

    • A. Their is a plug under your dash, usually around the base of the steering wheel. It is as easy to plug up as a printer cord or a USB connector. You will have to pay the comapny additional money to get the report of what the codes mean or go online and Google them to see if you can find the answers.

    • A. It just plugs into the socket under the dash on the drivers side of the car. Plug it in with the key off. Once it is plugged in, turn the key on but do not start the car. The reader will connect in a few seconds and display the codes on the screen. read the manual for more details. It is very easy to use.

    • A. Really easy. Somewhere under the dash in your post 1995 vehicle, usually on the drivers side, there is a port for the unit. You simply connect the plug - and it is keyed so you can't install it incorrectly - turn the key on (don't start the car) and it provides the codes

    • A. Very easy to use once you locate the plug for it and to find out what the codes mean you use the cd that comes with it and you can also get info, on how to fix it yourself. and for a fee $9.99 you can get expert advice.
