Diacom is that you need made by rinda technologies but a scan tool doesn't just fix your issue it just points u in the correct direction if you know how to use the program

ya for some reason im resisting to pay the dealership 130-260 bucks just to diagnose the problem... if i can scan it and find out why the check engine light came on that would be alot of help instead of paying them to "play around with it"

You can read codes by jumping A&B pins on the DLC but I would suggest getting the $50 Rinda code reader. It makes it pretty simple to read codes.

John, if you ever get down to Portland, I'll scan it for you. Hopefully it's just a low voltage that we can clear. Not going to lie, 2007 has a few check engine gremlins.

That works on MEFI-1-4 (I've done it) but don't do that on a MEFI-5 engine. Somewhere on this forum I read that jumping A&B on MEFI-5 will damage it.

Not sure what year MEFI-5 started but my '07 is MEFI-5.

MEFI 5 does not have a DLC it has a OBD-M and takes an ICAN connector.

Might want to take a look at this thread. Seems there was a split in ECMs.
