Whats out there for a decent priced code reader for these newer units to read
and clear codes?? Or even one that would work on say the early 90's cars too.
I used to work as a tech in a garage but left in 1996. Back then the shop had
expensive Snap ON scan tools. I don't want nothing that pricy. I've seen some
code readers etc. at auto stores for $200 bucks.
I've found two popular one's that I can get locally. The Innova 3100 or the OTC
3769 both are about the same price. Though I may be able to go through a friend
who works at dealer to get a better price. Anyone have one of these units?

I'm using an Auto X-Ray code reader purchased at the local Kragen auto
parts. So far it has done just what I needed to do to read out trouble
codes on my '96 Volvo and a friends '97 Ford Explorer. I haven't had cause
to plug it into the '02 Olds yet ....
If you got a PDA or are thinking of getting one look into scantool
attatchments for those. Not only will they read codes and clear them
(minus abs and srs) but they will also graph a number of sensors. And
when you're not using it as a scantool it can do a number of other
things as well.
