Looking for Scan tool help in Western MA

Hi all,

I live in Hadley, MA and I am looking for anybody with a good scan tool that could help me pull the codes on my 2001 PSD. I just had it in the shop last week for the UVC wiring harness on the drivers side and now the SES light is back on and the symptoms are almost the same.
Still a bit stumped as to how these 7.3 can get away with not being able to be read by a standard scan tool. Perhaps because its considered a heavy duty engine?
But anyway, if anybody lives anywhere close and has a few minutes to help a fellow PSD owner out, it would be greatly appreciated. Even if I haev to take it to the shop to get fixed I'd rather have a better idea of what it is.

Can you not take it to AutoZone or Advance? I know they will pull the codes for free. I am going to get Auto Ingenuity Software as soon as i can get a laptop.

Tried Parts store

I did try the parts stores. No luck with pulling codes. The SES light is on so I know there are codes.

Please pass along the Scan tool you purchased, as I am willing to try another model. I have one scan tool that cost me around $80 on sale. It has always worked on multiple vehicles and have been able to help out friends, but no luck with the PSD.

Still looking

Thanks for the suggestion. I have heard of MassDiesel. The only problem is that they are two hours away from where I live and I doubt they will pull codes for free.

I actually like my local dealer, but just wanted to narrow the problem down myself and try to safe a few bucks.

Nobody in the area can help me out? Can anbody suggest a scan tool that doesn't cost too much? I love the idea of Autoenginuity but that's a bit out of my current budget.

thanks
