Finally recieved my Factory Service Manual in the mail this weekend and I'm quite pleased with the amount of infomation it has. One thing I noticed was that the manual had thousands of occaions in which it instructed me to use the DRB III or a DRB scan tool. Are these the same piece of equipment? If so, are the OBD II scan tools that they offer at the parts houses comparable?
I also noticed that there aren't any Diagnostic Trouble Codes(DTC's) listed in the manual. I'm guessing that they are listed in the Powertrain Diagnostic Manual that I don't have. I guess what I'm getting at is , can I use the OBD II scan tool that they sell at the parts store instead of the DRB III? Based on the price of the service manual, I can imagine that the DRB III would cost me my first born. If I can use an OBD II scan tool, Would it benefit me to get the Powertrain Diagnostic Manual? I hope someone out there has got an answer, that way I can focus on the Powertrain Control Module(PCM) and figure out what the hell it is and what the hell it doesn't control:loopyeye:
