Question Auterra Scan Tool

Has anyone used or have one of these adapters. As I already have a Palm PDA thought it might be a worth while addition.

Re: Auterra Scan Tool

I'm actually looking into one now.... something to go into the BA.

I'd certainly like to have a play, but AU$500 is a bit pricey!

Falcon Killer (if you believe what Ford Service Departments have to say about me)
AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...

Re: Auterra Scan Tool

seems as though it is for overseas cars and not Aussie ones. Otherwise it would have been great

Re: Auterra Scan Tool

You have to be careful that the codes used are the same codes as used in Australia, probably not. Otherwise a good idea.

You also have to be careful to check if your system is OBD1 or OBD2. That looks like an OBD2 system which is only on the lastest vehicle models. Like my NF might be EEC V but still has OBD1 diagnostics. Very confusing.
