    iPhone App to get EML error codes - Download it now while its free

    Just a quick post to let you know (some of you may already have this) if you download an iPhone app called:

    'Car Trouble'

    in the top right hand corner there is a button that says:

    'ODB-II Codes'

    As you know error codes on engines are pratically standard across car makes i.e. the same error code on say an astra will mean the same problem on a focus.

    So you can do the pedal test, note the code it gives you, fire up the application and entre it and it will say something like:

    0170 is your code this means 'Fuel Trim Malfunction (Bank1)' <----- taken straight from the app

    Not sure if you can get this on Andorid (if you can't tough ) but you can get it on the iPhone/iPod/iPad!!!

    why is is long?

    If I do it on the pc i would have to do:

    1) pedal test
    2) write down the code
    3) go back in the house
    4) turn on pc
    5) connect to internet
    6) go to google
    7) search for wedsite (while also beign displayed other incorect info)
    8 ) look through list of code till I find my code

    Or do it on the iphone

    1) do pedal test
    2) open app
    3) type in code
    4) read it off the screen
