so guys, i'm looking for some diagnostic tool to troubleshoot, mod, tune the M-series. more specifically, i want to have the same capability as an Infiniti/Nissan tech in term of using their COnsult II and any other Computer Diagnostic tool on the car. i want to do some of these troubleshooting using Consult II as described on the Service Manual. so aside from Uprev, their cable allows you to monitor, flash the ECU but not really doing any type of extensive troubleshooting hence i want to explore any other alternative from the market such as Consult II emulator. You can see them here
Now does anyone here have any experience with anything related to Consult emulator? as an enthusiast, i would like to have the ability to troubleshoot my car as much as i can before bringing it to a Professional. For some cases, I myself consider think that some dealers are pretty clueless and they just start throwing parts at it rather than trying to get to the root cause. Therefore, i rather fix it myself unless it's totally out of my control.
anyway, let me know what you guys think. let this be a good debate and a collection of good info on how to diagnose and troubleshoot our M-series.
