Frank, keep in mind that the more you want from the tool the more expensive it gets, and often in large monetary jumps. I suggest visiting a few of the sites and reading up on the capabilities each offers. Then come back here and ask more questions as you have them.

Here'* a good thread to read:

The ABS codes will require one of the fancier scanners, like maybe the Autoenginuity talked about here:

Frank... Looking at your sig. This is going to be a tough purchase.

Currently you've got the OBD1 (older bonne) and the OBD Hybrid 1.5 (95 bonne).

The Autotap is strictly OBD2 only and is not backwards compatible. Many have picked up an Actron scanner, 9110 I believe is the number...with a special cable to make it read the hybrid. That would most likely cover your current two vehicles from your sig.

Thanks for the info on the search Echo SSEI.


I'm going to read up on those link'* either tonight or tomorrow night lash. thanks.

The 95 SSEi as soon as I can safety and get an emisions test will replace the 90 SSE. Therfore the 90 isn't an issue. My next vehical (when the time comes) will be a newer Bonne. As for the chev.....that'* old school no scan tool needed for that...........that'* right up my alley. With that said........what'* my best choice now BillBoost37?

Sorry...no idea. I have not had the need to research any scan tools for those years or your expected years.

I'd say hang in a little and others should chime in.

Now, you're gonna have to spend some money. Until you know for sure you're getting an OBD2, you'll want something that will read everything. I am very happy with my AutoXray EZScan 5000. It will read anything with OBD (so long as you use the right cable). But, it wasn't cheap... $429.00 through partsamerica.com (The PartsAmerica.com team includes Advance Auto Parts, Checker Auto Parts, Schuck’* Auto Supply and Kragen Auto Parts. )
