As titled, what is a better cable to read Lexus (LX470 1998 here) AHC codes?
Here’s one of our customers’ report and feedback.
Recently picked up an old LX470 1998, wanting to get AHC adjusted properly. When pulling up TechStream with the mini vci cable, I am unable to check the AHC codes.
Cable I purchased: (it is advertised as 1.4.8, the cable shows 1.4.1)
I have already started the return process for the mini vci cable that I purchased through Amazon. It was kind of strange to me, it would read some things just fine, but other things, like AHC codes,
I will order the vxdiag vcx nano cable and give it a try.
VXDIAG VCX NANO Toyota Techstream:
Received the vcx nano cable, updated it, and….. IT WORKS!!
It came with a newer version of Techstream V18.
It reads AHC codes without problem.
It does everything Techstream does. I think it’s a better-built cable so I have heard that it works for stuff the cable didn’t work on like TPMS. I was able to assign my another lexus TPMS ID’s to ECU with this. I was not able to do it with the regular cable.
I have been using this VXDIAG one for about 2 months and have zero issues. I love that I can connect wirelessly. I plug in the device, walk over to my garage work desk and use the laptop there. It’s much sturdier than the cables.
