Buy an OBD II scanner. Do not buy OBD I - it's antiquated and will not work with new cars.

Hey guys I'm having multiple problems with my 06 Z right now. Bought it used about 10k miles ago. Noticed an electrical problem awhile back and now I'm ticking in he morning and get a wierd whine when I get on it alittle (3000rpm and up). Im not talking gas'n it just pullin out quickly maybe puttin it to 3500k. Took it to nissan and they are pretending everything is fine and that they cant figure out my electrical problem (Im guessing because I have a warranty). So Id like to be able to go in with a list of codes in hand.. but It says doing this check could clear codes also so if I get the code and then take it to the dealer will it be cleared and they wont be able to get it???? Could it also give them a reason to screw with me on my warranty??? Thanks guys.

Step 6 of the procedure is what clears the codes. After you read all the codes, simply turn off the ignition WITHOUT performing step 6. All the codes should be retained.

A lot of auto parts places will scan your car and give you the codes for free - a lot easier than this method IMHO. Is your SES light on? What was/is your electrical problem?

I like my 350 but I love my 300ZX TT more.
