Anyone live in the Allentown PA area that can help?

I just got a service engine light on my dash, I do not have an engine code reader. Is there any fellow 4g Eclipse owners that can lend a hand and maybe let me borrow their reader? I'm trying to save money before I need to take it to Jack Williams. (I live the the lehigh Valley in PA)

Here’s a basic cheap one for generic codes, this can do anything any of the auto parts stores would be able to pull for you

You should absolutely not consider driving an older OBD2 car like these without owning a scan tool or code reader

If you want to do more advanced things and read more modules, there’s more expensive versions

If you wanna save money, Consider parts store like (O'Reilly's, advance auto, AutoZone) if you can. They let you use theirs for FREE if you ask nicely.

Yeah you can do this if you want
But $35 to buy that first one that does the sane thing and without the hassle of going to an auto parts store may be worth it, it is in my opinion

Anybody driving an OBD2 car out of warranty should have one
