OBD 2 tester.

Looking to get something.

I see little boxes to wifi to my iPhone, as well as the standard little orange box with the cord.

What say you teamtalk?

I bought a cheap one from Amazon for $12 or something. I use the torque app on my phone to connect via bluetooth.

Easy and affordable for small stuff.

Additional info - not looking to get super high tech, just be able to read codes and stuff. I can google it from there.
The phone apps seem to have a lot lore info than I need. Not sure if the communication factor is worth it i guess (wifi or Bluetooth).

Most of these cheap obd testers, will only read engine and srt codes with basic parameters. If your looking for airbag, at, abs, etc. these will not work.

What does it take to get abs codes?

There are some abs specific testers readily available aftermarket but they are closer to $100 or more.

I needed one that would read ABS and a friend in the industry suggested an OTC 311PRO. Around $200, but it isolated my bad right rear speed sensor for me. You didn't say how advanced of a reader you are looking for?
