Equus Testing & OBD Tools

Equus builds automotive testing equipment. Many testing tools are intended to help do-it-yourselfers repair their vehicles, rather than a professional. Quality and innovation are the hallmarks of the Equus line of diagnostic testing tools. They include electronic and mechanical testing equipment from timing lights and compression testers to digital multi-meters and OBD tools. Equus on board diagnostics code readers and diagnostic tools are sold in several versions, the best includes severaal time saving and helpful features.

Check engine lights are fantastic because they let you know that something is wrong. However, without a tester, you can't get a clear picture. Equus OBD 1 and OBD 2 (also written: OBD II) code readers and diagnostic tools help you trouble shoot on board diagnostic codes. This can save you some money by avoiding scan charges at your professional garage. Many people try to guess what is wrong with the vehicle and start changing parts, hoping that it fixes the code. In the end, that can lead to a lot of wasted time and money as well. The answer is Equus OBD tools.

OBD is split into 2 groups of vehicles. OBD 1 covers vehicles from 1981 to 1995. OBD 2 is found in vehicles that are 1996 or newer. If you have a 1993 Mustang, you would need an on-board diagnostic tool for OBD 1 vehicles. OBD 1 tools are code readers to let you know what needs fixed. Each Equus OBD 1 reader is manufacturer specific. OBD 2 was a great leap forward. OBD 2 ports are universal and usually found under the dash. A universal port is extremely better because one code reader will work on virtually any OBD 2 equipped car. Some Equus equipment will work on both OBD 1 and OBD 2 equipped vehicles. Adapters are included to fit each manufacturer on OBD 1 vehicles.
