    Not gonna happen. The OBDI scanner has many different connectors for different makes and they are all expensive. I think the shop I worked at paid like 2k for the scanner and like $200 for each connector. We only had like 5 connectors and non of them ever were right for what i was doing.

    The paper clip is the scanner. You "jump" the female connector and the dash lights up telling you the codes.

    On every car built after 96, OBD2 was used and most, if not all use the same connector to pull/scan the codes. For the Audi, I use a VAG-COM normally or if I'm in a rush and want to take the longer but easier route, I use the regluar "pocket scanner" type deals

    our shop has an OBD 1 scanner. Its about a bazillion dollars (actually like 2 grand) has 20 or 30 connectors and then chips for every car...its fuckin rediculous. by the time you find the connector and the chip for the car youre working on, youve already got the O2 sensor replaced and your car is running like a bat outa hell.
