Code Reader for LLY

At what price do the good Code Readers start for the LLY engine.....??? Not a cheapo code reader, and not the top shelf code reader.......but a good reliable code reader.

Most Auto Parts Stores will read codes for you if you ask or can rent or loan a code reader to you.

Is there some kind of mechanic shop close by that you can check with about reading codes?

Edit; beat me to it...

Remoteness of the OP might prove difficult in accessing a local Auto Parts....especially with the truck not running properly.

Other than seeing posts about not all devices will read all codes, I've always used my V2, so don't have a clue on quality with readers.
I know lots of 'em seem to be relatively inexpensive while others run into the hundred$.

If you have a smart phone you can download an app called Torque Pro and order an ELM327 to plug into the DLC connector and you should be able to read and clear codes

Looks like I CAN"T edit on this forum........I wanted to add, that the stores I called in Anchorage, Alaska said their code readers Don't read LLY engine, they would be happy to order a code reader that will work, if I pay up front.


They explained the ones they use at the store are low end basic readers.

I don't have a smart phone.......I don't even have a stupid phone.......I have no Cell Phone.


I do have a landline phone that comes in by microwave......so it is often garbled or simply does not work.
