Hows this?

The Actron ones that Autozone and the like sell seem to be pretty decent, and not too much $. I've had my truck scanned there a couple times and it worked pretty well.

I have this one:

http://www.partsamerica.com/ProductD...egoryCode=3389
http://www.actron.com/product_detail.php?pid=16318

It's a decent scanner for a decent price, and it's pretty much idiot proof to use.

Advance has it on sale in the stores now too.

Don't know if you have a harbor freight near your house but this is what I bought a couple months ago and it works great.

i've owned/played with a few different scan tools. the first thing you need to do is determine what you want out of it? if you just need a scanner or to shut off a check engine light, get the cheapest one you can find. if you want a real tool for data logging and measuring performance, i'd recommend an autoenginuity. imho, they're best bang for the buck at around $200.

then just get the cheapest one that supports your vehicle(s). you should be able to find one for under $50.

^ My Snap-On guy has the Modis on the truck sometimes and OMG is it SWEET. It will walk you through diagnosing ANY problem in any vehicle in it's database, like how to check if a sensor is working correctly or not. It also has its own set of probes/leads to test stuff with. Without even hooking it to my truck, I was able to look up my problem and figure out how to rectify it. And yes the Solus is pretty effin sweet too. My buudy used to have the older model. They are just so comprehensive in the amount of info they give you.
