    Are you located in the US? If you are and the vehicle was manufactured in 1996 or later you will be able to use a low cost OBD scantool.

    There are a number of manufacturers, I make one also that is available at

    OBDPros

    This kit includes all the cables and software that you need to get basic info from the vehicle.

    For advanced software you have additional options to get comercial software such as Digimoto OBDII Vehicle Diagnostic Software

    Thanks

        Hi Dimo,

        Correct, I am assuming you are looking at getting basic OBD II data like Speed, RPM, cooland temp etc? and also fault codes.

        All that will be accessible via the USB/Serial scantools
