Ive just bought a new laptop, what do I need(leads+software) to use it as a 'fault code reader'?

I already have a scangauge, would a laptop be better?

Cheers.

Just to read the codes I would have thought a scangauge would be just as good.

You could have some interesting info on the laptop screen from the OBD2 port though if you have some decent softwear.

Thats what I thought.

Just wondering what software and leads people are using.

OBD2 or OBDII

You can get it all through eBay.

IIRC the scangauge end of its own lead is a USB plug.
