    Which Hand held scanner

    Hi, I have a Fiat Bravo 1.4 1998 and I want to read ECU, I dont know what protocol it is.
    But I know its a 3 pin connector, I have recently purchased an adapter lead for it 3 pin to 16 pin OBD .Can you recommend a palm scanner that will work with my car, I want to spend about a 100. But I would also like the scanner to cover all OBDs and protocols on most other cars including vag for vw and audi. Any info please would be most appreciated.
    Thanks
    kevin

    Kevin,

    16-pin OBD connector is a prerequisite for OBD-II compliance. If your car doesn't have one, unfortunately you cannot use an OBD-II scan tool to get information from the vehicle.
