I got back home last night picked up the parcel with Scangauge2 and followed the little quick-start guide. What a fantastic device.
I started just thinking of it as a tool, not especially interested in the gauges.
I found code P0719 and P0000, cleared them.
Test drove to fill up and use the "First Fill" calibration, tested the cruise control that now worked again. A little confused, I decided to abort, since you need to keep it in car for all trips anyway, which I'm not just yet.
Wife drove to work with it, no problem, but near end of trip on way back, the code came back, after stopped no code, taking off slowly with traffic it came on.
Now I'm off to look for a thread/link with the applicable OBDII diagnostic trouble codes, and service manual for troubleshooting flows.
We just went for a drive out to dinner and back, cleared the code first, and no problem (must be my driving ;)
PS: between ECU resets and clearing codes, no differences in running or performance problems experienced... but intent on solving the problem, don't need a moody temperamental family car =P
