Im tired of fighting with Strauss and Autozone, i haven't tried Pepboys, to try to get them to read my codes specially since they charge 80 bucks just to read them. so im planning to buy my own obd 2 to read my codes.

Woud this be a good one.

those are about the same price as the OBD2 scanner i just bought... lowest one was 39.99 but i bet with shipping it'll be about 50 or so.

I've got a carpc in my milly ( check my older posts for details) and am using ELmSCAN USB with Palmer Performance software..

They , Palmer Performance, (resold at scantool.net as well) have just released some major updates to their software...

I use their dashcommand sw for integration in my frontend , that had a major update...but the big news, especially for me is that they now have support for Mazda Enhanced PIDS, including ABS and transmission!

It doesn't come cheap the sw alone (ScanXL + Mazda PIDS) cost around $180, plus you need about $100 for a usb scan tool.

I serioulsly doubt those cheap ebay scan tools do enhanced pids for mazda...double and triple check...if they do ,let me know...

I'll be updating my carpc post with more info and pics ....I'm playing around with the demo of ScanXL...It has our milly's listed , and it can read a total of 167 pids!

I have this one. It worked well on my early '94 production 1995 model and also works well on my 1999 model even though both cars use different communication protocols. It does most everything you need it to and requires no external power source or batteries. Even if you later end up getting a USB to OBDII interface cable and some software, it's a good idea to keep one of these in the car for those times when you just need to clear a code...like when checking the air filter and forgetting to reconnect the MAF sensor, or running low on fuel and getting a P0725 or P1455 code, or clearing an evap code from a loose gas cap.
