Hi there,

I'm sure this topic was already covered on here multiple times, however I couldn't anything recent. I have just bought a used 2014 Honda Civic 1.8 I-VTEC I was wondering if there are recommendations for an ODB2 reader at all?

I looking to read fault codes and clear them, obviously I'm not willing to spend hundreds of pounds on one of these.

Your help is appreciated.

what are you wanting to read
if its just basic engine codes then £10 from ebay gets you all you need
if you want more as in abs /airbags and such then your looking round £100
can get them from around £80 upwards but the more common ones start around the £100 mark

Just basic engine codes for now and to be able to clear them, would be nice to read ABS and Air Bag error codes but this means I would have spend more as you have quoted above. Can you recommend anything from the cheap ones at all there is so many out there I'm not sure which one to chose. I have read on here the ELM327 with Torque seems to be a good combination.

I have also looked at this one but not sure if it's any good:

@scaramanga

Appreciate the help I might as well get the Foxwell NT414 Pro just in case other car gremlins will pop up along the way. I take it it can be used on other cars too so it's a bonus.

some of the Autel ones are good but ive not really any personal experience with them
some foxwell are brand locked ie honda or ford but can be added on for a fee
but my nt630 covers a big range and can be updated
