Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

There are diagnostic steps for these codes which i have and can share but I want to make sure that is something you feel like you can even do. Does your tool do more than just read codes, can it monitor readings?
