Hi gmz105,

Unfortunately, yes. I took the 3130 back to Canadian Tire and returned it for a refund. Went to a local Carquest and tried two other brands of scanner (an Actron owned by one of the counter guys and another that was off the shelf but opened. Neither of them worked. I went back to Cdn Tire and begged them to sell the Innova back to me for the sale price (sale had ended). They did - it's a good tool for a good price and I need a scan tool whether it works on the CRD or not. Still baffled about what's up with the KJ though. I'm gonna check the OBDII connector next and hope I find something - I can't shell out $6200 or so for a DRB. I've gotta run for now - my wife and kids are waiting for me to start a movie. I will continue the story soon though and thanks for askin'.

My 'limited' experience.

The boss at work was running an ELM 327 bluetooth, which paired fine using the Torque app on his android tablet. We blew it up when we plugged it into a 24v truck.

I purchased the ElM 327 wifi device https://10carbest.com/best-obd2-scanner to pair with my iPhone. I could never get it to pair to my iPhone, iPad, or my bosses tablet which had worked with his bluetooth device. It never worked with 2 toyotas (2000, 2003) or old chooks honda (2006) ... life goes on it was like $15 off ebay.

I decided to go the whole hog, and get an Autel AL539 scanner ($200), seemed like good insurance for buying a newish second hand car, could check the VIN and so on on the scan gauge. Short and sweet, it would work with some vehicles not others. Contacted the seller off ebay, who said update the software, ended up with an expensive brick... Don't buy anything off obd_automotive on ebay. They are a Hong Kong company who say they are Australian, with an Australian warranty, which is all rubbish. Difficult to deal with!! Spoke to the techy at Autel Australia, that's what he told me. He said to raise a paypal claim. I got refunded (by paypal), but a lot of hassle and didn't achieve anything, particularly given that by the time paypal sorted it I had brought the car...

Like I said, my limited experience, but a bad run none the less.

If you want a real scan tool avoid snap on, their scan tools are crap, everything after the brick is aimed at hand holding for lower level techs, guys like me who are actually good at diagnosis use tools from Launch or Autel. The brick was the best scan tool snap on ever made. I love their hand tools but the rest is crap, pico makes great scopes, flir makes the best thermal imagers... Ect. For a cheap tool for what you are doing look into the torque tap app and a Bluetooth dongle like the elm. I am currently working with scan gauge at data logging so they will have the coding to work with the crd in the not to distant future

Beg to differ my snap-on solus pro scanner is the best scanner I have ever used. It allowed me to test my new rebuilt transmission one clutch pack at a time and saved me a tow and a couple hundred for the dealer to perform a "quick learn" on the transmission. So many built in function tests for our little diesels, injectors, fuel pressures, graphing and data logging. I was able to hunt down the short circuit in my tranmission temperature circuit using the scanner's real-time voltage signal measurement ability comming from the thermistor, through the input and output transmission shaft speed sensors, what a mess. Glad I have this scanner.

Paid 1000 used on ebay, have all cars foreign and domestic odb1 and 2 through 2017. I won't ever own anything newer that 2017 in my lifetime.

Most newer scanners offer bidirectional controls for all the domestic stuff, but the snap on tools Will never be able to do the things the Autel to launch can do, I have a launch pad 2 and neither the versus nor that way overpriced Zeus would touch resetting the fuel alcohol content on the last 2013 Chevy I did for example, the snap on also doesn't offer as much data on euros or offer Honda key programing Ect... There is plenty of step by step by those who need the help but if you know how to diagnose you don't need that, my boss and I get into arguments all the time because he still doesn't get that I refuse to use his stupid identifix for how to, I told him as an ASE advanced level master certified under car specialist who has spent many years at classes perfecting what I do that these things are great for beginners and B level techs but an A tech should know this stuff. Launch and Autel are both Chinese company's who copied the oem software and snap on and Mac tools won't have the same level of features, try one out, also the snap on tool has a hacked up version of windows and that's why they are so slow. A new launch pad 2 is 2500 and a new Autel ts906 that also does tpms is 1500. Bottom line, the snap on diagnostics are good for beginners but the launch and Autel are more powerfull tools, kind of like how kids at school use the Texas instruments graphing calculators but those who use one daily use a HP... If you want a good jack go to harbor freight and get their Daytona jack, it is a copy of the snap on jack and they did such a good job they got sued over it.

I'm a hobbyist machinists and auto mechanic, I rebuild motors, rear ends and all transmissions, learned this putting myself through school. My scanner works fine for me. As employment I am a software and electrical engineer. What you need is not what I need. Thanks for your input.

Just finished a junk yard donor rebuild for my jeep, added a trutrac LSD. Just donking around for fun, my day job is stressful.

17 in/lbs pinion preload, .0065 backlash, timken bearings, factory pinion nut, yukon pinion seals, new wheel bearings, seals and yukon axles.

Looks good, I am planning to add the truetracs front and rear to my wife's when I swap in some 3.55 axles, the torsion difs work way better than any clutch pack, I frequently rebuild the clutch packs or replace them with a power trax locker, I always tell guys one trip up the boat ramp and the clutches can be fried, that's why I hate clutch style LSD.

I am looking for a new scanner and have been wondering how well the new Autel MaxiCheck MX808 will work on our KJs and amongst other things, be able to read ABS faults in components such as the Wheel Speed Sensors and detect, decipher and reset codes such as:
Glow Plug P0671
ABS C1011
ABS C1032
ABS C1035
ABS C1049
ABS C2100
ABS C2202
ABS U0002
ABS U140E

Can anyone confirm that the MaxiCheck MX808 bi-directional functions will enable the “Brake bleed” feature of the “Advanced Service Functions” to operate the ABS system of our KJs to enable the complete brake fluid bleeding, please?

In the description of the MX808, there is a comment that “it is not a full function scanner like a MS906 or ms908”.
Does anyone know what functions the MS906 and MS908 scanners have, that the MX808 does not?

there are many diagnostic tool can do diagnosis for jeep,but if you need to by special for jeep Liberty CRD.
You would better to sent the detail information about your car,include engine type,model year...to make sure the tool can do functions on your vehicle model.
