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.
