I recently had the (dis)pleasure of seeing that damned little CEL light on again.

Hooked up the OBDII reader which worked perfectly last time, and it connected fine, but gave no code at all (just 00). I can't remember the model of the reader as I borrrowed it from a neighbour, but it is quite a good one so I was surprised not to get the code or any indication of a problem.

It did, however, reset the CEL when I asked to to clear the codes anyway.

Has anyone else had this problem or could you provide an explanation?

(oh, and 250km later the CEL is now back on again so I guess I get a second try at it, but neighbour and reader are 200km away so it might be a while ;)

Thx :D

Texasforester,

thanks, although I don't think there are any Autozones in Canada.. at least not that I know of.

perhaps I'll post in the Canadian forum and see if anyone knows of an equivalent company in the Toronto area that will read the code for free (most want to be well paid for such a simple task!)

the other option I am considering is hooking up an old laptop to one of the new ELM327 based readers.... cheap and chearful but ought to cover everything

:D
