Tool to reset all codes?
 
I've been searching on here a while and all I see are for resetting airbag and service engine soon. How about all of the other codes a person gets? Is there a tool that resets those also? I have replaced a few things to correct the limp home mode, but I had also read that you need to reset your codes. Any information is greatly appreciated.

I'm happy with my Peake Research R5/FCX-3. It reads and resets every drivetrain code, but it does not do SRS faults.

PA Soft 1.40 That would do everything and more than you want. There are a few threads here that can teach you everything you would want to know. For just basic obd2 scanning,I like a Bluetooth obd2 adapter and torque pro App on android. For all other stuff, PA Soft on a lap top.

Not for the most part, just get yourself the PA scan tool,

From what I've read on here it is hit and miss. My problem right now is my car is in "limp mode". I've done some things to correct it, but I read a post that you have to reset codes in order for the computer to know it's fixed.

Do you also mean the PA Soft 1.40?

I have a pa-soft 1.40 I will sell for $30 it comes with the cable to connect under the hood. It wouldn't work for my operating system. P/m me if you want it

That is where I bought mine. They did NOT send a software cd. After several e-mails back and forth and a lot of wasted time he says fed-ex won't ship the cd. Maybe because its copyrighted software? You never know what your gonna get when you buy directly overseas.

It's not worth very much without the software is it? I mean isn't that the interface that lets you see the codes?

I PM'd you. So you have it with the software? Also, does it actually reset the codes? My car is in limp mode and I read that I need to clear the codes to see if I have it fixed.
