This is a Chinese copy

Any of these in this price range are Chinese knock-offs.

I have one, it works – well enough – on my ’96 Town & Country minivan. But I have a proper one for my Prius.

If you’re just looking to clear a known code, or to extract basic codes it should work. And if it doesn’t you’re only out $15. However, like in my Prius there are many codes that require some hoops to be jumped through.

Also note if your vehicle uses bluetooth for the connection or WiFi. This is WiFi only (normally the case) and as commented above, locks WiFi to itself and the scanning system.

Good Luck.
