Just codes or codes & descriptions
« on: October 17, 2011, 03:01:49 PM »
Does the UG only give the error/trouble code (I'm assuming it's an abbreviation or number?) or does it give the code & description?

The reason I ask is if I get a code do I go to the auto parts and say, "I've got this code. What does it mean in English/human terms" or will the code be self explanatory?

Thanks in advance,
Allen

Only the code is given.  You'll have to look up the specific vehicle code on the internet.  I use http://www.obd-codes.com/ to look up any codes.  :D

Thank you both for very informative information. I was hoping it gave more info but understand why it doesn't. I think I'll still order one anyway because it looks great and is a great price!

Again thank you both.
