Hi guys, I am new here so be gentle. I am obviously not an idiot because I have read the idiots guide to INPA and have no idea what it's all about. It appears to me I need to buy a lead, some software, possibly a 16 to 20 pin adapter and an old laptop to get an 232 port. Now I might be wrong but this sounds a tad expensive and also with so many bits from different sources no one will offer help as they will all blame some other part of the system not supplied by them,
Now to my question ! Is there available a simple code reader/ reset tool that works for all the cars systems? If so where do I get one and at what cost? I only want to be able to diagnose faults before sending the car to the garage, reset service stuff, and turn off things like the airbag light which I seem to have acquired recently. Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks, Bob.
