    98-02 Honda/Acura owners - which obd-ii tool worked for you ?

    I have a '99 Accord and '01 MDX. Just want to see if there are any Honda/Acura owners of 1998 to 2002 (6th gen) year model cars, and what OBD-II tools they have been using successfully.
    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Honda use the ISO protocol, so you should be OK with a tool which support this....

    Hope this helps,

    its not as simple as that. Theoritically its true. It "should" work, but it doesn't.

    As a supplier of OBD2/EOBD tools I do realise that it is not as "simple" as that, there are a number of factors which you can check however.

    Have a look at the pins that are present, do these fit in with the ISO protocol (http://www.ukobd.co.uk/forum/forum_p...p?TID=15&PN=1), you can also check that you have power and a good earth on the appropriate pins.

    The power and earthing pins are longer on the DLC connector, so you need to ensure it is fully located. We have also experienced issues with regard to when in its "boot-up" sequence the ECU is able to accept a connection from the OBD2 port - this can be 15/30 seconds after the ignition comes on - if you are using a multi-protocol scantool this part is essential, so try experimenting with plugging the tool it different points and see what happens.

    I hope this helps
