I thought I had a bad unit with LINK ERROR on two different cars. You will never see the MAXISCAN MS300 display on the LCD, as described in the manual. Here are the real steps to follow:

1. With the ignition off plug it in. I immediately saw CAN OBD2 on the LCD.
2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. This is the position just before you crank the starter. Do not start the vehicle.
3. Then press the ENTER button on the reader which starts the scan.
4. Use the SCROLL button on the reader to view the results.

This is a handy tool, but almost any auto parts store will do a free code scan for you (Auto Zone, O'Reilly, Champion...), so that might be a cheaper way to go if you don't expect to use it much. An auto repair shop can charge you $100 or more to do the same, depending on where you are in the country.

The manufacturers website [...] and manual appear to be done by a novice "Chinese to English" transalator, so can be cryptic as best and totally misleading at worst.

Note that just resetting the code will not let you pass inspection. The sensors have to return a ready/OK code for the emissions test. It takes driving several miles for the sensors to retest and get back to the ready/OK status.

I bought this to investigate the occasional engine light codes on our family's two cars ('99 BMW 323i and 2005 Toyota Corolla). Considering I've used it about a half dozen times so far, it's already paid for itself and then some. All of the problems so far have been simple and easy to fix myself- loose gas cap, dirty MAF sensor, bad spark plugs, etc. I would have paid thousands of dollars for a mechanic to diagnose and repair these problems if I didn't have this reader. I've also used this on my friends' 2004 Accord and '98 Protege, again saving them hundreds of dollars. This is the secret auto mechanics don't want you to know. The $100 they are charging you to "read" or "diagnose" your engine light literally involves 5 minutes of labor and an OBD reader that is fundamentally no different than this one. They would like to keep everyone in the dark and pay their exorbitant fees, but fortunately you don't have to be a victim. Even if you never own a single wrench, this is the best investment you can possibly make to maintain your vehicle and will save you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in labor charges alone.

Most of the features have been covered extensively in the ~180 reviews here, so I won't reiterate them here. I will say that despite only having two buttons, it's easy to navigate the menus once you play with it for a few minutes. This unit is powered by the OBD-II port itself, so you don't have to worry about batteries. It does allow you to reset your 'check engine' light. As far as the CD is concerned, I knew it would be a POS so I automatically threw it out. All you need is to write down the code(s) it generates, and then type them into Google and you will have you answer (and often the solution!). You can also go to a vehicle forum specific for your make (e.g.

Unfortunately for me, it doesn't work on my 2008 Hyundai Accent. I used this before on my 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan and it seemed to worked, but on my Accent, it said "NO CODES". I knew this wasn't correct, since the "Check Engine" light was on and the car was running rough. I took it to an auto parts store and they read the codes and told me there was a misfire on cylinder no. 3. When I got home, I tried it again, with no success. Unfortunately for me, it's out of warranty. Based on the reviews, I suppose I'm just one of the few unlucky ones. Maybe it just doesn't work on a 2008 Hyundai Accent.

The marketing hype says it works with all the vehicles after made after 1996, apparently it is not true.

Bought the unit in 2011 but had been sitting in our garage until my wife's 2007 odyssey got a check engine light on. it just does NOT work! Tried all different ways, including engine on /off, all in vain with the "link error" msg. Too much time wasted on this... Had to go to Autozone for the test and paid more than double the price to buy another different model from another company they carry.

However it does work on/connect to our 2005 Camery, which has not problems at all (comparing to our endlessly troubled Honda...)

I bought this because I had two vehicles with the Check engine Light on. It says it scans both generic and vehicle specific codes. IT scanned my Toyota Tacoma fine and gave me the code and I was able to fix the problem.
When I scanned my 2009 Mini Cooper though, it is another story. It recognizes that there is a code, but when you go to see what the code actually is, it says N/A
This does not help me at all. It basically became as helpful as the check engine light itself. It recognizes there is a problem but does nothing to help me figure out what it is.
When I called Autel I learned there are two divisions, an American division and a Chinese division. He said he couldn't help me because that was ordered off of Amazon and it came from the Chinese division. He said it was Chinese crap and that I should return it.
