I have questions about the BlueDriver adapter, for OBD2 functionality, code reads, reset, etc: https://www.amazon.com/BlueDriver-B...gateway&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&smid=AD7D9D1JAFECP

I presently have an OBD2 scan tool that links to smartphone, but it is not as advanced as the BlueDriver. https://www.amazon.com/BAFX-Product...+obd2+scanner&qid=1555345484&s=gateway&sr=8-3

What brought this on is that my P80 car has had the light next to the Service light, I believe it is either an ABS or SRS light, on for quite awhile. Other lights come on, but sure enough, only when I am not in the car. :eek::confused: It's back in service now, and doing very well, however, I feel very accomplished, and want to learn more about these non-OBD2 systems that always seem to stay on, no matter how clear the system that sets or does not set the Check Engine Light is.

I see BlueDriver supports Mode6, and lists as compatible with my model.

So! Begin the questions. What is Mode 6? Is BlueDriver any good? Anyone use it? My adapter I have now works well, but it is a one-trick pony.. unless Torque Lite or Torque Pro can also access these same systems, in which case, I will learn that too.

Yeah. You wouldn't believe it but runs pretty well. Lowkey pretty good for the price.

It comes with ONE free, and you choose what one you want free. And yes it finally works with 32 bit operating system thing.. lol i harassed the company about it for about a week they got in touch with the developers in china and within a month it was fixed.

Customer service is in point with them too.

Oh, nice.

I ended up getting an Autel HT-209 ? A $20 unit from Walmart. Said to have the functionality of a $200 unit. I am not a fan of paying for subscriptions etc (the way we go through phones etc) so. I will give that one a shot.

The CEL set so..
