I also meant to add that I didn't lose any custom settings that I know of - the radio seemed to have all my favorites, my phone still connected, and the info display seemed to be the same.

Great info, cbrenthus !

Do you know what reader most members are using ? Is that the same as a TazerJL ?

The TazerJL does a lot more than read / reset codes - it can do things like change the tire size for the speedo, diabsle ESS, and many, many more...

However, there are basic code readers that are just OBDII scanners. These will read the code and let you reset it, that's it. They can be found starting around $30, and are a great tool if you are doing any of your own work in a garage. I believe that is what a few people have reset the code with. If no one confirms this, I can check later to make sure mine will do it. This is similar to the one I have (mine is quite old, 10 years give or take).

One other note is that I think many auto parts stores will read and reset codes for you for free. ;)

This Forum is the BEST.
Great info....For me I will need to do more than just reset codes....Definitely a good option for someone just looking for the OBDII scanner for codes.

Does the TazerJL need to stay plugged in full time or is it just plugged in when making adjustments/clearing codes ?

As was answered already, any OBDII scanner can clear codes but the superchips, etc will also read and clear codes too. I used my superchips flashcal to clear my codes but as it was stated already, that tool will also do things like change tire sizes and all that. I believe most those tuners will read/clear codes in addition to what they also do as well.
