OBD: On Board Diagnostic tool


Recommended Posts

November 29, 2022

Can someone please recommend a good OnBoardDiagnostic tool for 2005 LS430 so that I can read the error code and what seems to be wrong with the car before deciding if I should get it fixed or not, and where to go for repair.

I am hoping I would be able to buy it at Amazon.

Thank you.

Here's a good comparison article about scanners. There are many really cheap ones out there that are not included in this list, but I don't think I would trust them for anything but a quick code read.

You can also check to see if your neighborhood auto parts store allows you to borrow a reader. I've seen store employees go out and read the codes for the customer, who can then write them down.
