Default WANTED: temp use of a OBDII scanner

I do not have money for my Aeroforce gauge yet, but I need to pull some codes.

I can't drive my car to Autozone as its not legal

I was wondering if anyone could send me their scanner for 1 day of use, and I will send it right back. Jim comes to mind

I guess I could buy a reader at Wal-mart and return it right away

Yep buy a code reader and return it when you are done unless you get a super deal.

no laptop. If you are offering me free diagnostic software, PM me

turns out my Advance does not loan out code readers..

however, my Autozone did, for a $160 deposit

I found my code, o2 sensor not plugged in, all better now

thanks Hans!

Hey, My parents have a internet useless laptop (ethernet port busted and too much to fix) If I downloaded the software and burned it to a cd and installed in the laptop, then got the right cable, I'd have a scanner for my car? If so Pm me with info!
