Scanning tool

Recommended Posts

Looking for and inexpensive scanning tool / OBD for a 16 valve.

I have a bluetooth OBD2 for my newer cars, do the adapters work or might it be more reliable doing the key on off thing?

Thanks for any suggestions

For your TC, the key on-off-0n-off-ON is the simplest. Then let us know what codes you get. Having been a Chrysler Repair Shop Operator for 22 years and a Dealer Tech since 1960, I have found that the Snap-On 2500 scanner will give you all the readings you need including live and record mode. If you can find someone with one of those, you'll have it made.

The key dance will give you fault codes and for most purposes it will be all you need. The two digit codes are general but if you need more detail you need to get the POXXX codes. IF your bluetooth supports ODD1 then you should be able to get the PO codes. Below is the key dance...

As always thanks for your help, I'll keep an eye out for a 2500 down the road, right now I'm drained after Christmas.

In a couple weeks I'll be resuming my troubleshooting and repair of my TC and I'm sure I'll be looking for some of your expertise.

Happy New Year
