Hello I have a 2001 GEN III automatic 4 speed
and the engine light come on a week ago and i want to scan for the error code
but i do not have a scanner
can some one tell me which scanner would work on my car and i dont want an expensive one if someone already has one that works can he please give me its name so i can be sure it works before i buy it.
short terminals 5 & 6 ( the 2 on the top right of conector), turn ignition on and count flashes.
Bridging pins 5&6 won't work.
It's hard to know if that scanner will work or not, I bought a similar one that works for some live data but will not read fault codes. Here is one like I bought:U585 VAG & CAN OBDII CODE SCANNER READER MEMO SCAN OBD2 - eBay Other, Tools, Car Parts, Accessories, Cars, Bikes, Boats. (end time 31-Mar-10 23:11:51 AEDST)
The only thing that will work that I know of is EFI Live but it is a little more expensive than these scanners. There is an EFI Live forum that will give you information.http://forum.efilive.com/
The oil pressure sender is a common problem on the LS1 and also the PCV hoses, the rubber parts perish.
