MEFI 5 reader Can you help?

I have an x-45 with a check engine light on. I need a reader to determine cause. Anyone with an MEFI 5 code reader in the San Francisco - San Jose area willing to help?...thanks

Sorry- I thought MEFI would be related to OBD-2, but it's not even close. I was going to offer you my OBD-2 scanner, but I guess that won't help.
I did search- those MEFI-5 software sets are bucks!
Good luck to you!

Yup, about 700 bucks for the software, cable and CAN adaptor for MEFI 5. For me, the closest dealer is 3 hours away so I just bought the Diacom system.

I found this one for $350, but it may take at least a week to get here. I may have to drive 2hrs to the nearest dealer.

I believe that system is put out by Arizona speed and marine. You mght want to call them directly and see if you can get a better price and confirm ehat you get/need.

Thanks G!

Do you know of any marine mechanics in the bay area? Closest NorCal Mastercraft service department is 2 hours away. They closed their Pleasanton location...ugh

Thanks Cumminscj.

CantRepeat I'm looking at the Diacom system so I can also diagnose my pontoons outboard. Did you get the basic system or the deluxe? I'm trying to workout which connectors I need + future proof myself going forward
