What code scanner will read all the CTD's codes? Mine acknowledges that there are codes, but cannot pull the numbers for some of them. Ours just had a CEL pop up yesterday (running fine).

I picked up the Scangauge II with the Cruze Diesel programming after doing a ton of reading here. It can read/clear codes plus you can monitor a variety of things while driving. Search around here and you will fine a lot of info on what it can do.

If you just need the code for right now you could go to Advanced Auto/Autozone to get the code read for free.

My everyday solution is Torque Pro for Android, along with the Bi-Scan add-on that @Snipesy wrote for it. I can get engine codes with it, but not other systems on the vehicle. It has great live data capabilities for our Diesel-specific sensors when the Bi-Scan app is added. The app also adds some bi-directional capabilities like doing a manual re-gen or controlling idle speed or EGR position.

I can get all of the engine codes with this and my $15 ebay OBD/Bluetooth adapter.

If I need to get into ABS or Airbag codes, it's a little more complicated, and I use my Innova 3160e Scan Tool. It has been able to read any code on any system on any vehicle I've tried it on. Excellent scanner for the price (I paid a lot less than it's currently listed at, though). Has some live data and battery/alternator testing capabilities as well.

Most should be able to pull BCM, TCM, and ECM codes.

But other things are on a different network per say. You need special interfaces (known as SW CAN).
