recomended sub $200 OBD2 reader
 
I couldn't find a thread via search on this subject so my apologies if I missed it.

Basically looking to purchase an OBD 2 reader but not so badly that I'm willing to spend more than $200. While I own all the shop manuals for my vehicles (2002 Odyssey / 2009 Accord / 2002 F-150) I make no assumptions that I'll recognize the codes so guides or equivalents easily accessible on the net would be worth while.

Thanks,

-robert

What is it that you are wanting the reader to do? Depending on that, you may not be able to get one that is going to do what you want and cost less then $200

Since you have in your profile an 1986 vehicle, that actually is an OBD-I type and those I wouldn't even bother with a reader for. Unless you had an 89 on up Ford as those had more options then the earlier ones (live stream of data etc, but that was just on some).

Now, since you said OBDII, I would imagine that it's for a different vehicle then the one listed in your profile. Depending on what that is, I go back to my first question.
