Ok, so I love my Elm Scan with the ScanXL software but, when I pull DTC's I though it also would be able to "guide you thru" some things that could be the problem. Insted of being a parts changer. Well, to no avail I was not able to find what I call a "Diagnostic Guide" so I searched the net and found this

 http://www.aa1car.com/carleyware/scantool_companion.htm

It looks like a great tool to have just incase you are in need of some direction because, to me just a generic code of say P0420 Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold will not cut it in some cases.

So, with that has anyone used this software or is something similar already on ScanXL?Huh

Thanks for those websites Hansie.  They are a useful resource.  There are some areas that do need some expansion in the software such as a more complete guide to walk people through the program.  We will see what we can do about expanding the information on trouble codes depending on the demand.

That was just a random code that I had to deal with in the past, I am not having an issue with it at this moment.

But the last link that you posted I had already read and saved to my jump drive. But if you look at the link that I posted it is to the same website just to the scantool companion. This is a good sight and they have alot of useful information. I think it would be very adventagous to have this type of information in ScanXL. Say, like when you pull a DTC and it gives you the code, then you would be able to click on the code itself and it would take you to a diagnostics guide to help solve the problem, insted of having to stop what you are doing go inside and use the internet to help trace down the problem. (I dont have wireless internet on my laptop.)  It would really cut down on my running around and searching.

Yes, thank you for posting those links. They both have VERY valuable information on tracing down the problem.
