Actually, it depends on the vehicle... it is not supported with my '96 Toyota Land Cruiser (with a couple of new hail dents this morning!).

Can Ultragauge clear ECL codes

Does anybody know if the Ultra-Gaue will clear codes? If this info is on their web site, I can't find it!

Clearing Engine Codes.

The following is a link to the manual for Ultragauge. It allows the reading of codes and clearing of codes. This information is on page 43 of the manual.

I just ordered an Ultra-Gauge this last weekend, I had seen it reviewed on another site. I can't wait to get out on the road with the Scamp to find the sweet spot while towing

Hi, Kurt. How did the Ultra-Gauge do? How does you Forester handle the Scamp. Thanks, Ken

Hi, Everyone - I'm confused. It looks to me like the ScanGaugeII does pick up transmission temperature; and the UltraGauge Automatic says it does not pick up transmission temp. Did anyone ever actually get one of these to show the Subaru transmission temp?

As I understand it, Subaru transmissions do not report temperature to the engine computer, which is the module that ScanGauge talks to. Instead, they report temperature to a separate transmission computer. The transmission computer talks to the engine computer, but is does not share transmission temperature.

I have a Scan Gauge II and use it to monitor the transmission temps on my Jimmy's transmission when towing my 13' Trillium. I am surprised how much difference the ambient temperature makes. Last week I drove the I95 between New Brunswick and Portland ME. In the afternoon it was 82* and I had a high of 213* after hills but leveled off at 204*. At night the ambient temperature dropped to 41* and my transmission temp stayed steady at 176*; the same road and driving conditions except temperature. I also noticed that if I allow the transmission to shift itself into 'passing' gear rather than shifting myself into 3rd, the transmission temperature rose more quickly and higher.
The ScanGaugeII has a LOD gauge which shows the engine load. I use this to let me know the point at which the transmission will shift into passing gear and shift down manually just before.
Of course, it is also great for reporting fuel consumption.
