I use a $22 bluetooth scanner from Amazon and a $4 app. Reads and resets fault codes on everything I've plugged it into so far.

Found #8 coil pack on my motorhome was bad.


Have you used it on a diesel?


No, I have not. I don't have the manual handy (in the motorhome) but I believe it works on all OBDII vehicles.

I have a cheap Wifi OBD dongle that works but then I upgraded to an OBDLink MX for use with AlfaOBD.
It is a more expensive option but the AlfaOBD app allows feature upgrades to most FCA vehicles that are otherwise not available from a dealer.

I might spring for the OBDlink Mx+ IF alphaobd will enable fogs with high beams.
Haven’t found a hack for that yet on the new Charger!
Good feedback gents, thanks.

I have an OBDlink MX BT in my truck. I think it was well worth the money and so far almost two YO has been very reliable.

With the Forscan software on my Surface tablet it reads just about from any system in the truck and I use it daily with a droid phone with a paid Torque app. No issues.

What Bluetooth code scanners do y’all have?
Is it worth getting a Bluedriver or OBDlink MX for around $100 or do the $30 range ones get it done effectively?
Don’t care about real time info while driving and some of the other “features”, just want something that will reliably read and clear ALL codes. IOS compatible.
It’s hard to see which of the cheap ones you’re on the hook for an expensive app to make it work and some don’t readily have apps in the App Store.
Reccomendations?


Just scan common OBDII codes and reset? Or scan, reset, and program modules?

Some reasonable cost professional bi-directional tools can found at VX Diag:

Some of their products are on Amazon, too. I like the Nano Pro series.

These tools do require a windows laptop and some knowledge of hd partitions and layered software installs- OS requirements vary depending on the VX Diag products.
