Thanks for your info! About buying a scanner,I had planned to buy a new one for all my cars,but I wanted to be sure if this 96 Accord had the OBD2 set up and not the OBD 1.5.
I was an auto mechanic years ago,and left the business,so I sold alot of stuff I did not need anymore.I never worked on Imports tho,all GM,so as time has gone by,I want to get a new scanner to help me if I ever need it for my imports and etc.
I also dont want just a code reader,I want a scanner with real time data..It would take too long to explain,but when I was fixing cars and using my snap on scanner,I was able to diagnose a random misfire using real time data,to track it down to a single cylinder,which a simple code reading scanner cannot do.
