Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I normally log in after 3 pm central. Please make sure to let me know exactly what is needed from me so I can provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service. Can you teach me how to use a J2534. No I can not, that would require face to face and a bunch of broken vehicles to experience every different scenario. For a new dealer tech it often takes about 3 months to get confident and comfortable using this tool to its full availability without experiencing a hiccup. You can purchase all the parts needed here. http://obd2.com/J2534/ It all depends on how you want to use the tool and on what and all the stuff you would like to do with it, to determine all the cables and and subscriptions to purchase. The software comes with all the instructions to follow for setup. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------On your screen at the top you should see a rating 1-5 stars and a green submit button. Please make sure to select one and press submit. I am not compensated by the website unless a customer rates. Rating only pays me from the deposit you have already made, it does not charge you more, nor close the post. Also all follow ups are free and welcome.Thanks Chris
