Check Engine Light

I wanted to throw this idea out there and see what happened. How about turning our PPCs into a diagnostic device too. Just plug it up to yer vehicle and see what that check engine light is all about instead of paying someone $80-$100 dollars to do it. Oh, and while im at it. Can these devices also hijack a internet jukebox in a bar?

Re: Check Engine Light

That would be cool if it can be done, It would also be cool to flash a cars computer with our ppc...I use a predator for my Mustang.

Re: Check Engine Light

very good ideas....... now all that needs to happen is for a great dev to catch an eye on this little baby and then when any of the iphone users come we can make them dump their pants. lol

Re: Check Engine Light

I don't think this idea is far fetched, all we need is a wire harness to plug our ppc (mini usb) to our cars computer and some software.

Re: Check Engine Light

Very cool idea but there would be a tremendous work load keeping up with all of the auto manufactures. Leave it to a fellow St. louis boy to come up with the idea...

Re: Check Engine Light

the juke box idea would be sweet, but we'd need an older PPC that has infrared (so we could trick the box into thinking its the original remote)
