*I have tried it on a Ford Mondeo 09, VW Touran 04, Toyota Proace 15 and a Skoda Octavia 06, works just fine for engien codes.
*It works properly on my jaguar x type 2003, it’s easy to use and easy to read and a low price which made it well worth the purchase, I highly recommend this product for your car needs.
*Check engine light appeared on my 03 CRV, read the code with the Scanner, looked up location in service manual and change out sensor. Problem solved.
*Needed this for my 1998 Ford Explorer. It is easy to use and can save you a little money finding a problem in your vehicle. Help you save a ton of money.
*Autophix OM123 can read the check engine light (MIL) codes. It is able to read any existing codes or codes that are pending. Once you retrieve the code you can use the scanner to clear the code.
*One main advantage of the Autophix OM123 is that it shows the emission readiness.
Both items are so cheap (OM123-$35, T49-$38.99) that is affordable for most customers, their functions are almost same with each other. AUTOPHIX OM123 Code Scan Tool is verified to work well on 2000 or later US, European OBD2 Protocol Vehicles. While T49 works on all 1996 and newer vehicles in US, 2000 in EU countries, sounds a wider range of cars, however, purchases should depend on specific vehicle model. Hope this blog helps you!
