    Talking Good Fault Code Reader

    Just thought I would give you lot the low down on a Code Reader I just got.

    http://www.gendan.co.uk/product_POCKETSCAN.html

    Nice little bit of kit and doesnt need batterys, plug and go.

    It will read / clear stored codes
    reset the EML and turn it off
    lists part codes stored (not enough to bring on the EML)

    really happy with it but the best bet is you can get it alot cheaper than £94.95

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...4507421&rd=1,1

    I cant see any listed at the moment but it only took 2 weeks to get here but I put that down to Christmas post. They even left me feedback stright after payment which doesnt happen alot lol

    it total delivered to my door I only paid £32.65 massive saving over Gendan list price.

    hi there mate
    did you actually have a eml light on and then remove it, its just a few of these will give you other details but not actually turn off the light, if it did then nice one its about time theres one around that works!
    just incase anyone is thinking of getting one the elm323 with software works on lots of other cars but not the vauxhall coupe turbo.
    thanks
    steve
