OBD II Trouble Codes & AutoZone

AutoZone CAN read the code and reset the check engine light (CEL) for free, but you have to tell them the magic words "OBD two" because for some reason they always think that they cannot read MB codes. Every time I have gone there they end up reading out just fine. The connector is above the driver's feet below the steering wheel on most cars (since 1996). Also, last time the guy thought that the code wouldn't reset but when he disconnected the scan tool it had reset the CEL. I bought a code reader for $140 they also sell them at AZone and Advanced for $150.

here is a link to the Actron site this is the one they sell at the Zone; it also has a link to generic OBD codes (this info comes with the code reader too).

Spaces in sig so as not to screw up the SEARCH; every time someone searches for that MB they don't want my sig!
