ABS Diagnostic Tools
For the 94 model year LH bodies with the Mark Teves IV ABS system, is it only the DRBII scanner that can be used to retreive the codes? Or does OBDI work.
Secondly are there any software applications along with a specific wire that can be used to turn a laptop into a diagnostic tool?
Finally as far as bleeding the Mark Teves IV ABS system, is it only the DRBII that can do it?
I find it highway robbery at $100 per scan at the mechanic. I know the scanners cost a lot, but that is highway robbery as well considering they use fairly simplistic software that requires little by the way of processing power. It could easily be performed by a Laptop or PDA computer with the right adaptor and software. Maybe $100.00 for the software and $20-$50 max for the adaptor. But, I guess the dealers like the fact that they can make their money off reading codes to diagnose before doing any actual repairs.
