    Hi, can anyone advise if my car is OBD2 and EOBD compliant. The car is on a V plate (Dec 1999). I understand that all cars should be compliant from 2002/3 onwards?
    There is a 16 pin socket under the dash and also a 20 pin socket under the bonnet. I have had it scanned 2 months ago via the 16 pin connector.
    Also, does anyone know where I can get a cheap reader from that is compliant with my car?

    If you have the 20 pin port in the engine bay, then that is what you should use. The 16 pin under the dash is limited in connectivity and will not scan the whole car. Have a look at a Peake tool
