Frequently asked questions 

Q. Can you recommend an inexpensive fault code reader that will work on most popular makes and models?

A. Most cheap fault code readers tend to be very generic and only read the engine management system but not on all makes or all models so there isn’t one that I could recommend. One that might show a certain make will perhaps only work with a certain few models. They also tend to be very limited in what they show and can sometime confuse the user as they do not differentiate between memory (i.e. old codes) and new codes. Most registered garages will perform a comprehensive code read for you and give you the print out for a minimal fee which would show any faults.
