Our 2004 CR-V EX began displaying a service warning. The dealership told us the diagnostic computer died and would cost about $1,000 to replace with OEM.

Have you had good experience with any aftermarket devices that connect to the diagnostic port? I am not a mechanic and know very little about auto mechanics issues. I hope to find a device that will connect (wirelessly) to an app to tell me if anything is wrong with our car. Otherwise, it will be restricted to local commuting or sold.

Thanks.

Died?????
I’m incredulous.
If you have a check emgine light, Go to an auto parts store ask them to read the code.

i’ve not had the best success with wireless obd2 readers. Wired ones seem more reliable. Cheap ones are under $50

Wireless OBD2 things work fine here. Make sure they are ELM327 compliant.


I use OBDAutoDoctor because it works on wired, wifi and bluetooth, and laptop or phone.

Or if you don't want to bother with any of that, go to the local car parts places and have them scan the OBD2 system for free.

Like rocky, I too find it hard to believe the diagnostic computer died.
