What scan tool is good for 16+ camaro...

Hey guys, I just bought a autel maxicheck pro to diagnose and clear codes on my 17 camaro . I'm able to scan everything but I can't erase the codes and use calibration function.. After figuring out with an autel technician I found out the scanner is only good for 2015 and under camaro.

So now i'm looking for options ,the cheapest autel scanner that's compatible is way to expensive (630 $)

What scan tool you guys are using ?

I bought the base model from Harbor Freight today. I'm going to test it later.

If you are willing to spend $630 then I would just buy HP Tuners, for half of that price you can get the cable and then download the tuning and scanner apps. The scanner app is a really powerful tool and is able to read and clear codes along with other diagnostic stuff as well.

I 2nd that suggestion. HP Tuners with the cable and software work so we’ll together. You don’t need to purchase credits to use the scanning software.
