Stand-Alone OBD-2 Analyser

Interpret 'trouble codes' without PC

Stand-Alone OBD-2 Analyser
This handy analyser makes a simple job of rummaging through the information stored by the client–accessible part of your car’s computer. It works with all current OBD-2 protocols and can read and erase trouble codes stored in the vehicle and reset the MIL display. All this without the help of a PC or a visit to a service station.
