1999 Dodge Stratus Diagnostic/Scanner tool - which one?

Hi, I live in Uruguay - South America and I Dodge cars are very rare here. I have a 1999 Dodge Stratus LX (2.5 V6) under Chrysler brand.

I want to buy a diagnostics tool or scanner, I won’t use it on other cars (not many here), just in mine so I don’t need to check relatively new cars, a used tool will be fine if it’s in good condition.

There are a couple of expensive scanners and emulators with various hardware parts, it’s kind of confusing.

Any ideas?

Best regards,

In your search engine enter, “OBDII Code Reader”

You’ll find it.


By the way, the 2.5 V6 is a Mitsubishi engine.

Are you sure your car is ODBII compatible ?

Many countries did not require ODBII compatibility until eary 2000’s, even for cars imported from the states, and some countries still don’t.

Should have a sticker under the hood that looks similar to this

Check out the Autel AL319. It works great and not expensive.

I’ll check that and comment later but I don’t believe is ODBII compatible.

OK, thanks for the information, I don’t know yet if is ODBII compatible.
