    On a 2001, you need an OBDII scanner. CAN compliance didn't arrive until the 2005+ generation.

    Get a Scangauge II ..... it'll read engine codes, allow you to clear them, and a lot of other stuff. Do some research, lots of info about them!

    The code reader is already in the mail. The scangauge looked pretty cool though, it was on the gadget list until Garmin teased us with the ecoroute HD (which they have pushed the release date back a few times). Plus, the scangauge won't give me sensor readouts (I don't think it will).

    Also, has anyone relocated the ODBII port on the 1G? I have pretty much made up my mind that if I am running the truck with something plugged in the port, I will kick the plug and damage the plug and/or the device. I'm not sure if relocation is even possible.
