I bought the ML329 last year and connected it to my 2010 Kia Rio, and the only code I got was the one that means MIL fault. MIL stands for Malfunction Indicator Light. So, if my car's MIL is faulty, does that mean that any other faults won't be shown until I fix this issue, or only that the actual MIL light is faulty and not necessarily anything else? I've been having weird knocking issues with my engine during idle, which I'd think would throw another code, but none are showing up on the OBD2 scanner.

Btw, what could be causing that knock? The engine calls for regular octane fuel which is what I'm filling with.

O2 sensor? Fuel filter or pump? Fuel injectors? Plugs? Plug cables? Coils? Valves? MAF sensor? PCV? Too-tight belts? Something else?

Seems like a great price compared to what these used to go for, but nowadays I've seen a lot more of the small, bluetooth scanners that attach to your phone or laptop and run $10-20. I think many of the bluetooth ones allow you yo continuously monitor on your phone while driving. Does anyone know more about how these styles compared?
I use both (but a wired setup on the laptop vs wireless). I have had this actual model for many years now, and also a far more robust setup with my laptop.
Something like this is great for quick and dirty stuff...like want a quick look at what code tripped your CEL, reset the light, check emissions readiness, or quick look at live sensor output, etc...this is quick and easy. No fumbling around with pairing or apps etc. Just plug it in, and within a few button presses you have what you want. It's all most people would need.
What it CANT do is all the manufacturer specific stuff like codes beyond OBD2, the myraid of test routines newer cars are capable of, chart sensor output, ABS and airbag related stuff, etc, which you would need something far more robust (and expensive) for.

Got one. Had a generic Bluetooth scanner that worked well with Torque app but I gifted to a friend. Hopefully this doesn't disappoint.

Are there "apps" that allow you to do with with a decent BT OBD2 dongle--including bleeding ABS units, which you generally need a very expensive specialized computer to do? Or is the data to do this so proprietary, hidden and encrypted that it's all but impossible to reverse-engineer it?

Really the most cost effective way to have the most functionality is to figure out what hardware is used for the particular vehicle brand then researching what the better clones are (since the proper interfaces could run hundreds of dollars), see if there is any powerful widely used free software like vcds/vagcom for VW group, forscan for ford/mazda, etc(I wanted to say open source, but I dont think a lot of them are actually open source), and there is always the option of using the actual manufacturer/dealer software for most brands (less than proper or prob even legal, and usually at a cost but reasonable). To get a proper 3rd party setup that will do the vast majority of things across numerous makes/models will run you upwards towards $1k and beyond.

should work the same as anything else. These are only good for OBD2 stuff. I think the literature might mention reading vehicle specific codes, but it's been my experience NONE of these lower end ones actually do. I've had a couple VW's. VCDS is what you want. Software is free (unless thats changed in the last couple years), but proper cable will run you a couple hundred. I do remember seeing significantly cheaper clones, but a lot of people having problems with them. It's been a few years since I messed with VW stuff so maybe the cheap clones have gotten better, who knows. I had the real cable. Def worth the money if you like VW group vehicles and are a DIY'er

You'll need to be careful about having an OBDII scanner plugged in during all times of vehicle operation. Those devices have been known to throw out random error codes, which your vehicle is not producing on its own, and can cause issues if they do. ODBII is meant to specifically check when error codes pop up and to check in on vehicle stats, not be a constant stream of info (as great as that would be).
Interesting. I've had a ScanGauge II plugged into my vehicle for the last 4 years, and it's paid for itself multiple times by allowing me to monitor and diagnose vehicle condition, not to mention fuel consumption. Not a single issue to date.
