View Full Version : Anyone have an OBD2 scan tool?

27-12-2012, 11:03 AM
Hey, not exactly a car forum but here's hoping!

I have a check engine light up on my 07 Subaru Liberty GT which came up yesterday. Car drives fine, no problems. Before I drive back to the stealership to get it checked for $100, would anyone have a Subaru compatible OBD2 scan tool I could swing past and check how sinister the code is?

Im Fremantle way but don't mind driving as the stealership is ages away.

Thanks for your time!

$40 on Ebay (well, one for an I30 diesel was...)

I have one on the way, just trying to sort something before I go back to work. Thanks anyway!

I've got an OBD2 tool in Balcatta, which I'd assume is Subaru compatible. Today's pretty busy, but should be around home tomorrow.
