Where can I find a complete guide to using an obd2 scanner

I have an actron scanner but don't understand all the cryptic codes which describe the functions being tested

That my friend is the knowledge of being a tech. There is no magic download of experience. What you are using is not a scanner in any way, shape or form.

Every manufacturer uses different abbreviations and has different names for what they call their data and supply different scan tool data. Your generic DIY code reader also supplies far different info than a professional scan tool.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.
