I got a cheap elm OBD2 and gonna try via bluetooth and my cell. However if that doesn't work it's not worth the price of a battery, in shop time just to have the battery registered.... even if the battery lasts three years instead of six.... I come out even... and then I probably won't even own the car still.

But it's still good advice
