Handheld tools comparison

Handheld Tools at a glance...

The following tools are user-friendly, handheld diagnostic tools. They enable the user to access fault codes within seconds of plugging in. Most of the tools are for use with EOBD / OBD2 compliant cars, and will read and clear engine related fault codes. The exceptions are the VW/Audi/Seat/Skoda Code Readers - these are also compatible with many earlier cars and can access more systems, e.g. airbag.

If you are unsure whether the EOBD tools will work with your car, please look at the requirements listed below. Click here to find out which protocol your car uses.
