Hi everyone, hope everyone is enjoying there holidays! just a quick question, what is the cheapest tool to read and clear codes?
I know the BMS CanTool is a good deal

also looking for something with mac support

thanks in advance !

Hey Hisam.
Many cables fail. Thats why everyone goes with the sure fire $85 cable thats mentioned and linked in many threads here. A quick search should yield plenty of results. They may look the same but its the internal board/chip that makes it higher quality.
