Can anyone tell me or suggest an ODBII scan tool for 2003 nissan 350z?

Probably just the bluetooth one, as I bought a full scantool, assured its correct - but isn't :(

The cheap and cheerful eBay scan adapters work

I do believe some 350z's have an OBD plug but actually use Consult communications - that is a problem

I'd be keen to find one also. I bought a bluetooth one off eBay to find that it didn't read anything off my 03 Zed. It works fine in my dad's Mazda, my mates Lancer and and another friends Kia, but 0 results in the Zed.

So if you have an early model that won't talk true OBDII then you need:

1) A dumb ODBII to USB adaptor - USB KKL VAG-COM 409.1

These are available on eBay and from the following links:

2) Nissan DataScanII software ($69 USD)

From 2005 or 2006 on wards it should be standard ODBII protocol

My personal favorite for general ODBII scanning is the OBDLink (LX or MX) bluetooth adaptor - it has really fast communication and is usable for real time monitoring

Hi folks. First post and you probably all know this already but that nissandatascan is available in the andriod app store for 10 bucks under the name ndsii and works with those bluetooth obd2 plug in things - i havent played with it much because ive just been using it to clear some codes (p0345 grrrr) but i noticed rpm, water temp, airflow etc were all working. Theres a free version with ads too for you to have a looksee. Hope this helps - oh and mine is an 03 with the consult only obd port too.

      Hey there Z'dsters. So after reading all the comments about rim size and style, im now hesitant to change them. Its a lot of money out laid for something that could go horribly wrong. Firstly im not a lover of my 2012 rims... hence the reason for change. To be honest with you all, im now confused as hell and don't really no which way to turn. I find that im varying from the 19" because of the other styles and makes of rim that i like but are not made in a 19" . This Z'd is my first real nice car that is my baby as all of my vehicles have been high powered motorcycles so the Z'd relm is a learning curve to me. Ozzy tyres has two rims i'm considering, 1. is a 20" x 8.5 gloss black rim called ( pro drag PD1 ) now its a 8.5 inch width, which after researching can accomadate a tyre width from 225mm to 255mm. The 2nd rim im considering is a Vertini drift 19" x 8.5. colour to be decided. So after reading everyone's input i really am confused as to which way i should go and colour really. My Z'd is a 2012 Montery blue, and she is stock as a rock. Her shoe size's are.... Front: 245/40 x 19.    Rear: 275/35x19. They are Achilles tyres and i do not recommend, i find they are hopeless in the wet, crappy handling and helps the car understeer even more, and milage was lame and quite noisy........ Anyway................. So wheel and tyre package is needed for my baby girl...... So in your opinion guyz do you think the 20" rims a waste of money for the Z'ds. And would you consider 17 / 18" deep dish rims and why. would it cause complications being a smaller wheel etc etc. if you guys and gals don't mind.......... Some proper education on this matter would be seriously appreciated. Thanks Z'dsters. Dman.

      Hey fellaz, forgot about this thread.   My install is complete finally! Lets just say this is not a real RHD kit. I am pretty dissapointed in AAM claiming it is RHD.   Don't get me wrong the quality of the kit is excellent, but the amount of modifications/fab work it needed to fit our RHD car was insane! My install bill was huge because of it! Same with the other 2 AAM RHD kits i know of that was installed around Australia and UK.   Save yourself the cash, and buy a RevZone TT kit for 16K installed and tuned. The amount I spent to get the AAM kit fitted is enough to build a forged engine! I kind of lost respect for AAM now for telling us it is a RHD kit. 😠

      Wasn't quite looking for used wheels, to be honest. However, PM me some details please, I might consider. You never know...

      Mine has been replaced by Nissan previously, found a sticker after I bought the car.

      Personally, I would try the "banging on it and yanking the fuse" trick, that way you'll never have issues in the future. Basically just hit roughly where the steering lock unit is, and get it to turn to ACC, then go pull the fuse while it's still unlocked (either On or in ACC).
