    I bought one two days ago after my service engine soon light came on. I have to figure out where to plug it in. I guess it's underneath the dash somewhere. Hopefully it's easier to reach and operate than installing the Roe clutch mod (that was a back killer.)

    I went with one from Roe. A little more money ($54 I think), but I felt more secure knowing it would work for my car. The plug is on the drivers side kick panel just about where you would expect to find a hood release if we had one. Easy to find once you look.

    Might be, but try calling Harbor Freight to help with any tech issues.

    I purchased mine from Roe, actually, and its identical to the one from Harbor Freight. I do completely agree with supporting Roe, but I don't think he's going to miss the $15 from this sale. As far as tech support, what tech support do you require for a OBDII reader? :cool:

    There are codes in the back of the Service manual, page 25-3 thru 25-11. If you don't have a manual, get one. It is absolutely invaluable :2tu:

    Well, if one loses the code book for example.

    I'm betting Sean would help out in some way.
