Re: I got bored of ENGINE symbol! (xenophobic)

You need to buy one of these. It fixed my problem, couldn't be happier.<p><A HREF="http://www.actron.com/product_detail.php?pid=16298" TARGET="_blank">http://www.actron.com/product_detail.php?pid=16298</A><p>I got mine off Amazon for about $60, well worth it. <p>Do not get the other brand, blue color i forgot the name (Equus i think) it will not work with modern cars, had to return mine.<p>Watch that Volvo i hope it came with two armed bodyguards, or it may get trucked deeper into the Middle East:)

how that fixed your problem? it only resets the code right? you still have to diagnose and find someone to fix the problem (if there is one).<p>

The great thing about these is that you can change the colors to suit your mood. ie red for anger or green for envy.
