    Are these any good (tech 2)

    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?

    This is what you want:

    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.
    Cleanest car awarded 'Fast Show' 2006 & 2007

    Total Vauxhall featured Sept 2007

    COUPE NOW SOLD

    Any OBD2 reader should be 'internationally compatible' since it is an ISO standard communications method/protocol

    There have been different protocols/languages used in the past but any car made after 2003 In Europe or USA will be OBD2 compliant. Any car sold in EU/USA after Jan2007 must be CANbus compatible too (all vauxhalls are).

    Lots here: http://search.ebay.co.uk/obd2_W0QQca...Q2d1QQsbrsrtZl

    They won't all work, but you should be able to 'guess' which ones will.

    Vauxhall has been using ISO14230 protocol since 1996/97. And CANbus since 2005/06 IIRC. (both OBD2 compliant)
