Your car’s OBD-II (on-board diagnostics) system lets you check the status of various vehicle functions. You can check your emissions, engine temperature, mileage, airflow rate, coolant temperature, and more. Some of the most common error codes you may come across are related to the O2 sensor, which is a usual suspect in the case of the dreaded “check engine” light. Your vehicle may throw off error codes you don’t understand. You can visit a mechanic, who will hook up their expensive scanning equipment to your OBD-II port for a fee. You can also purchase your own scanning tools that range in price and function.

The Adoter OBD-II scanner tool can read and clear error codes for your car. It can perform an oxygen sensor test, which is important when you take your vehicle in for inspection. Simply plug it into your OBD-II port and turn on the ignition. It draws power from your car so there’s no need to recharge or replace the batteries. The display shows and deciphers detected error codes and provides a definition from a built-in library. You can print out a report and take it to your mechanic.

The Adoter diagnostic tool comes with free online updates for life, giving you the latest bug fixes and newly added data parameters.

For Prime Day, the Adoter scanner’s $59.99 list price is down to $22.94.

Optimal Prime

Amazon Prime Day first started in 2015 and has become an annual celebration of consumption. Critics say the sale is the equivalent of the retail juggernaut cleaning out the closet on a massive scale. High-budget concerts are organized to promote the event and during the inaugural Prime Day four years ago, Amazon put out a release touting its own success.

“Prime Day peak order rates have already surpassed 2014 Black Friday,” then-Prime Vice President Greg Greeley said.

We don’t see Prime Day going away anytime soon. Do your research and have a list of things you need ready. If you go in blind you may end up filling your cart with stuff you will never use. Shop smart!
