Have a 2006 Ford F250 Diesel. New to Diesel's, so was reading different blogs on the subject, Scan Gauge II, was suggested for monitoring almost all of the vehicle's operation. They stated "Don't Scrimp on cost" Buy the best. I did so, and am satisfied with my purchase. Simple to install and set up. I have a lot to learn, but am looking forward to the experience.

The ScanGauge 2 does almost everything thing that you need it to do. You can program gauges in it for you specific vehicle. I am able to have programed gauges for both of my trucks, 7.3 powerstroke and the 6.0 powerstroke. It is the perfect size to be able to fit almost anywhere without looking out of place.

Bought the first unit based on a longer warrenty and USA made. Installed on a 2006 5.4 L F250 supercab; worked great. Switched to 2003 3.0 L Taurus (different protocal); Worked great. Compact size makes for neat installation, plug on back and another on end helps placement, very well thought out and intuitive software and four gauges (out of a couple of dozen available) is about all I can deal with at one time when driving

Came in a timely fashion. Hooked up in seconds and started working. Easy to follow directions for programming additional gauges. Easy to unplug and store out of site when not in use.

I recently bought an older car to use as a daily driver. I want to stay on top of its condition, and idiot lights don't tell that there's a problem until it's too late. The ScanGauge allows me to see actual numbers and trends, so I can tell if there's a problem before it becomes a crisis. The X-Gauge features allow me to program additional gauges for my car, for even more info. Great product!

Well when I first received it.It DID NOT WORK.I called Scan Guage and explained my problem.They send me another unit.I installed the new unit and I really did not have a chance to really try all the modes as of yet.This unit did connect,so I hope it will be alright.Other than the additional wait,to get new unit.I hope I have no further problems.

I bought this product to keep an eye on my trans temp while towing, it does a great job. I love the real time of the digital readout. I just wish i could get engine oil pressure. anyway, easy to use and a lot faster than buying a single gauge,finding a place for the sending unit etc. X gauge is awesome.

How well will the scan gauge work for a 2002 Toyota Prius ? Will I need additional software ? Will it diagnose and clear codes ? Is it easy to use ? Does it work easily right out of the box ? I also have a 2003 Ford F150 Harley Davidson edition 5.4 supercharged truck, will the scan gauge work on this as well ? I guess my ? Is will the scan gauge work on multiple vehicles equally well ? For a novice mechanic is it easy to use ?

Hi, OBDII is OBDII whether you have a Toyota, Ford, Honda, Nissan, Dodge or pretty much anything else sold in the USA after 1997. You can easily read a clear trouble codes right out of the box with it.flag Accept Answer

Does this gauge show engine oil and transmission oil temperature when installed in a 2002 Toyota Tacoma?
Answered by Nathan S. — Nov 09, 2012 10:17 AM
Hi, Sorry, no. You would have to add trans and oil temp gauges with their sending units as your truck doesnt have the sensors from the factory to read those temps. http://www.autoanything.com/gauges/65A4129A0A0.aspxflag Accept Answer

I know DTC means diagnostic trouble code, but what it that?
Answered by Elizabeth C. — Jun 28, 2012 11:03 AM
DTC stands for Diagnostic Trouble Codes. When your vehicle has a problem and shows the check engine light, the onboard computer has a code for it. The programmer will show you the code so you can fix the problem, and then it’ll clear the code (saving you an expensive trip to the dealership). And, if the repair is beyond your scope of ability, at least you know what the problem is before you head to the mechanic.flag Accept Answer
