OBD2 Scanner
 
Hi, anybody have a OBD2 code scanner willing to help me read a couple codes? Treat u a case of beer for your trouble! :concentrate: I am in Richmond but I can travel around if need be.

Can reach me by sms at 778-881-9199

For which vehicle is this for?

If it's for one of your BMWs, an OBD2 scanner will only show you anything that is emissions related. It will not show you any BMW factory fault codes that are stored.

Yah its for my E92, would I need one of these instead to check for fault codes?

i had a friend messing around with an app for his andriod and thru bluetooth it was showing him everything. idle, rpm, temp, vacuum and speed. there was also an option on it to check for codes but he didnt have any so we couldnt check.. something to look into maybe?

Alright I'll give that a try, I borrowed a wifi OBD dongle. If not guess I'll have to get one of those BAV TECH software + cable.

I mentioned an andriod app BMWhat that can read codes and do coding

http://www.revscene.net/forums/68102...-coding-2.html

let me know if it works

Bmwhat works for codes. Its coding side is limited compared to ncsexpert. Torque can also pull codes.

However DIS found more codes that both apps didn't show

If you still need a ob2 scanner let me know

My setup is just like what snails says. Torque app pro using a bluetooth ob2 reader but I run mine off my andriod headunit and my phone
