If you have a laptop computer, or are willing to drag a desktop to the garage, you can buy EASE Diagnostics or other software systems for a few hundred dollars. At $85 a pop, you won't have to draw very many DTC's to get your money back.
I wish I could line up as many cars down the road as I could to keep the que full awaiting my drawing a trouble code for them at $85 a pop. I would be retired in the Bahamas in about six months.
Have a great day,
I heard of the ODBII for reading code, What is needed and how and where do you connect the laptop on the car, also where I can get the software..thanks 98 w210
