Default What a cool toy!

Just tried out my new Actron 9110 scanner and I gotta say it is a neat toy. Impressive to see things like what my transmission temparature was like (about or just under 160 degree on the highway on a cool night). Idle air temps, rpms. All kinds of cool stuff.
Kudos to Slug for a great job on the cable! Oh, and the connector was right where you said it would be.
Now I just gotta start figuring out what it all means.
Oh, and no codes!

Glad it worked!

It'* really the "Buttermore" cable, but assembled by me. Bonnie94ssei did some "shaking out" of my prototype cable for me resulting in a much more "robust" cable.

By the way, Bonnie94ssei will be at your meet and can give you some tips. I'm sure Boosty probably knows it well too.

Have fun!

Thanks!
I am sure I will get lots of great advice from the guys.
BTW, one of these is highly recommended to all.

I just got one too and it works on all my cars. I hooked it up to my 06 Taurus and it even shows cat temps! WOW!!

Works well on my Bonny with the cord that came with it. Shows all the info I really need.
