Handheld Electronic Car Diagnostics Tester - Reset Check Engine Light
OBD-II stands for second-generation on board diagnostics. OBD-II is a system developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) to reduce engine emission and standardize automative electronic diagnosis. Beginning with models manufactured from 1996 onwards, all domestic and import cars and light trucks sold in the USA and Canada must be fully OBD-II compliant.
If your car's Check Engine Light is on, you'll be grateful for this device. This neat car diagnostic scanner allows all car-owners, DIY customers and even professional technicians to read OBD II diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) from the on-board computers of 1996 and newer vehicles. With this smart reader, you are able to immediately self-troubleshoot the cause of the "Check Engine" light at any moment, wherever you are. The Engine Code Reader will also enable the user to erase trouble codes and shut off (reset) the check-engine light. The OBD2 scanner can read the data stream of the engine, including engine speed, calculated load value, engine coolant temperature, throttle open state, etc.

Will This Code Reader Work with My Car?
This OBD II Code Reader is specially designed to work with all OBD II compliant vehicles. It is required by EPA that All 1996 and newer vehicles (cars and light trucks) sold in the United States must be OBD II compliant and this includes all Domestic, Asian and European vehicles.
A small number of 1994 and 1995 model year gasoline vehicles are OBD II compliant. To verify if a 1994 or 1995 vehicle is OBD II compliant, check the Vehicle Emissions Control Information (VECI) Label which is located under the hood or by the radiator of most vehicles. If the vehicle is OBD II compliant, the label will designate OBD II Certified. Additionally, Government regulations mandate that all OBD II compliant vehicles must have a common sixteen-pin Data Link Connector (DLC).
For your vehicle to be OBD II compliant, it must have a 16 pin DLC (Data Link Connector) under the dash and the Vehicle Emission Control Information Label must state that the vehicle is OBD II compliant. This label is located on the inside of the hood on most vehicles.
