In the most basic terms any of the obd2 readers will talk to it at least in part. They are dirt cheap and available everywhere. You can expect to see fault codes and a few simple parameters like rpm and temps and even some of the fuel parameters etc, everything that is obliged under the obd2 protocol. Once you start putting more money into one you can see more live data and also freeze frames to help you find intermittent issues you can also start to see things like abs and srs systems but you are going towards garage level equipment and associated costs and even thereafter there's some information that is proprietary to Suzuki and their factory systems.

I don't claim to have any significant understanding of this beyond plugging in and looking up a code on Google. There is others in here that are way more familiar than I am.

I have an autool x50 hard wired to mine and it is good. I also have a Draper expert wired reader for other cars. Neither were more than about 25 quid.

I'm using this one www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0721DC46Y/ref=cm_sw...t_dp_U_J1O5CbKHEJZSN

seems to work well with the SZ Viewer A1 app written for suzuki vehicles. I've had a few email exchanges with the developer and he updated it last week

Got a deal and a half today. Local car boot sale and mooching about I spotted a bench top drill press. Guy wanted 35z quid i walked away with it for 20. It's a late 90s era Nu Tool ch10 made in great Britain. Gets it home and lo and behold it only works, needs a new belt as the old one is really tired. Gave it a clean up and lube and good to go. Looking at Ebay and the same machine is 75 quid minimum, well happy.

I bought one of these

Flexible Hose Clamp Clip Plier Set Swivel Jaw Flat Angled Band Automotive Tool
Buy It Now

Seems good for the money

The bowden cable tool is a pair of remote jaws that you might be able to get a sneaky hoseclip with where there is no room for the pliers. No idea what the bent screwdriver is for though...

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Tools in blow moulded plastic boxes, how can I resist? Money I don't have spent on stuff I don't need!
