Obd codes with no laptop


Recommended Posts

  • Gold FFM

Hi all.  I have a check engine light on the dash and need to read the code from it.  I have seen the obd tool listed on the forum but unfortunately I don’t own a laptop, only an iPad.  Does anyone know of a code reader that will do everything needed whilst owning the car?

 

i have a generic ELM 327 wifi dongle but I can’t even get it to connect.  I’m using the obd socket in the boot.

 

ive read through the free tool and even if I got a laptop I’m not sure I could actually figure out how it works

Hi @Mightymetro as well as the software on a laptop I have one of these that reads codes but also displays various outputs in real-time, volts, boost, temp etc. and it’s neat enough to sit in the cons

Does the generic thing work in another car ?? The one I bought went straight in the skip as I could never get it to work.

pop me a pm - I’m sure I’ve got the diagnostics software on the pc 

Only here once

not too bad for less than £50.
