Can anyone suggest a good code scanner that they use on a VW, mine is a 1996 VR6 Passat with OBD2.
I already understand the the superior capabilities of the VAG com but unfortunately i don't own my my laptop (got a company one). And buying a laptop just for a VAG com at this point in time is to expensive. And I am only a hobby mechanic.
I would really appreciate it if someone could recommend a good hand held code scanner for VW and would really be grateful if they have tested it on a 1996 VR6 Passat.
Also I am thinking of buying a MaxiScan VAG405... any comments???
I want you to know I am in no way advertising the product above, i MUST mention i am a hobby mechanic with a limited budget and have finally bought the scanner and it works great for simple error code diagnostics. If you have any questions I will be happy to answer them. I Have used the tool so far on Passats and Golfs.
Best regards to all the ppl helping each other on this site!
