  • Simple diagnostics 

    Sometimes we can forget that the simple things in life are the best. The Bosch OBD 100 is such an example, a simple diagnostic code reader that offers the ability to display the information you need without plugging in your bulky tools.

  • A code in the hand 

    The fault code reader is always a useful tool for a quick diagnosis of vehicle issues, especially those where the MIL illuminates. The Bosch OBD 150 is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand but detailed enough to help find problems. Working to EOBD standards, both units are easy to use, provide exhaust relevant diagnostic data, display and allow fault codes to be reset. The OBD 150 supports all ten OBD modes, provides a comprehensive trouble-shooting function and displays graphical representation of actual values via a multi-line display. In addition, the OBD 150 can receive firmware updates via its USB port. We had a unit in to test and it is simple yet detailed, providing enough information to solve common issues or provide a first-step to a detailed diagnostic check.
