Hello Everyone, Totally new, so go easy.. Can anyone help me with the following..
I have a 2000 xlt explorer. Proud to call myself an explorer owner.. I use to be a holden fan ( GMC in the USA ) but absolutely fell in love with my new truck.
I would like to know what computer programs would best suit the explorer for diagnostics.. Nothing to expensive, but i have a few warning lights up.. ABS and Engine light. Had them reset, but came back up straight away... I have tuns of other questions but this is a good start, thank you all...

Welcome to the site! Post up some pics of your new truck! Great to see an Aussie here.

A Scan Gauge is a popular item for real time data and viewing trouble codes. It won't display ABS codes however. I would check the condition of the front wheel bearings (this can be a common cause of ABS failure) and also check the speed sensor that is located on the top of the rear differential for build up.

Welcome! Agreed any OBDII scanner should suffice.

@ Y2K, Thanks for the heads up... Re-ABS light, It makes sense. When i drive thru water, the front bearings sometimes make noise, i am going to get them checked or replaced, before the front wheels fall off... Haha.. I added a pic in my photo album, but cant work out how to put one up on my profile... ( I promise that all... well most aussie's arnt as dense.. ) Im only getting into cars now.. Now that i have discovered a truck im interested in..
