Can you recommend a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) reader?

Postby Jim Walker » Mon Jul 31, 2006 7:28 pm

I have and am happy with a couple of your products (ADC212-100 and TC-08?). I also recently purchased an English automobile (2001 Jaguar XJ8) and am hoping that you might have some suggestions for a DTC (OBDC2) reader. I would prefer one that will work through a laptop as this should provide more versatility for the money. I am concerned about two issues that seem to be seldomly discussed. One is bidirectional data flow so that solenoids, relays, etc. can be exercised. The other is the many different controllers and busses that may need to be diagnosed.

Any comments will be appreciated.

Thanks for your reply. I checked the web site and indeed that product appeared to be very capable and would be very nice to have. No price was listed so I gave them a call. $10,500 is somewhat beyond my budget.
Actually before receiving your reply, I had just placed an order with AutoEnginuity for their $250 unit which when used with a Pico scope, etc. should be fairly effective.

Jim,

Good luck to you sir. I hope that AE provides you with what you want to do with your Jaguar.

Hi Jim,
Might try this tool if the A/E does not give you what you want.

Then acquire the OEM jaguar software, Think it wioll cover just about anything on your model
