I have an Innova which works with OBDII and CAN, the 2205 model is pre OBDII for SSangyong evidently.

Okay how deep do you want to be able to go into the system or just looking for

engine and transmission system and how much do you want to pay.

Could yo not read with the Innova any systems

I want to be able to get faults e.g.. coolant temp sensor and clear check engine errors etc for engine and auto. In terms of cost enough to get the job done nothing exotic. I'm not a professional motor mech.

Hi Greg,
not wishing to ignore your advice but what I don't want to do is buy a unit ( it's not the cost here as the ELM is very inexpensive ) and then spend a long time with it not working. On eBay this unit ELM327 is listed as not compatible with the 2005 Rexton 2.7XDi. I've checked all of the obvious ones already. Most code readers seem to be OBDII or later and the 2005 isn't one of those.

Hi Greg, well I've ordered an ELM327 USB code reader. We'll see what happens. Regards Dave

Will get back to you tomorrow and set you up with a scan tool for your car . But will be around the 100 point mark but worth it and if you have another make you can add to your scan system

Here is a down load of a scan tool with free OBD II reader and for an extra

fee you can download Ssangyong software .

I've looked at this site. Looks interesting. The ELM327 is not compatible with SSangyong and I would need a MPM-COM interface for this software for a SSangyong. I think.
Expert:  indy-tech replied 1 month ago.

Yes you will need the MPN-COM.

I've been using the OBDII with the ELM327 works very good .
