help! does anyone have an ob2 reader i can borrow!
hey!! i need to pass my emission in 5 days, so i was wondering if anyone has an ob2 reader that i can use to clear a code with. i used the paper clip method to check my code which was a p0141, so i replaced the o2 sensor but the code is still showing up...much help would be appreciated!!
thanks in advance!!

when u clear the codes,u gotta perform the drive cycle also, what kind of car

Its an 00 s2000. I'm lost right now as to what to do, if I clear the code and perform the drive cycle the code should come back if I didn't fix the problem correct?

or disconnect your battery or EFI fuse for a couple minutes, that should reset it as well... but you have to complete a drive cycle in order for your readiness monitors and self diagnostics to be complete...

you are allowed to have ONE readiness monitor incomplete with no check engine light or codes to pass aircare...

so i bought myself an obd2 reader and cleared the light a couple days ago. after it was cleared it gave me a yellow light which meant pending trouble (drive cycle required). today i checked and everything is green and good to go. *thumbs up

if anyone needs to borrow an obd2 sensor, give me a shout and ill read your code for you. save yourself money from going to shops and getting charge 60 bux.

narfy 04-22-2012 09:57 PM

My engine malfunction light came on for my 2003 V6 Honda Accord. Am a complete n00b, could somebody help me read the code? Live in East Van.

^ Where abouts in E. Van? I might be around renfrew/29th tomorrow night.

If you're not in a rush, just buy one of these:
It's a great price. The device is simple, cheap, but it works.

I have the same one, I think I paid $30

you can buy an obd2 attachment with bluetooth or wired cored to connect to your phone and download one of the obd apps from apps store and save yourself money from buying the actual thing.
