RE: OBD II Software: Anyone using it at home?
Autozone, etc. will read and reset your codes for free if necessary. You also don't need a code reader to reset the service reminders. That being said, I have an OBDII reader that plugs into the port under the dash. My guess is that it reads maybe 5% of the available codes which I think is typical. If you really want to do it right, you need to get the code reader that reads off of the 38 pin connector under the hood. That reads every code from every system, assuming you have the appropriate software. Problem is the 38 pin connector unit with the software runs into five digits as far as I can tell. The under dash plug in can be had for about $100.
