156JTS 2002 model, OBD Code-Reader required...
Hi, I am looking to buy an OBD Code-Reader, hoping that it will let me diagnose maladies such as the MCSF error my car has right now. :-( Can anyone recommend a seller/make&model please? I see that one shows on eBay, but it is in Hong-Kong, and I have my suspicions about quality and effectiveness. And then I see what seem to be cables, that would hook-up to my laptop, as they are OBD one end, and USB the other. Ohhh-Great. I've had my Windows8 lappie for about a year now, and it's not the most friendly or logical device to hook up with things. Connecting to an Epsom printer took some WEEKS before it would work - and I'm not a Luddite, for sure.
Even with a Reader or a cable connecting, do I also need a CD-rom or download of the 156's error-codes? Again, please can you point me towards a reliable source, and tell me which version I need?
