comment Webservice for looking up radio codes for a car?
Hmm, managed to find it actually. But it doesn't seem to have a security code though. It has one sticker with the product model (eg. A123BC) and its model code (A123WXYZ), and another card with its full serial number (eg. A123VA123456) along with the text that it is used when identifying a stolen stereo. Perhaps the security code is part of one of those codes, but there was no such comment in the manual and the card.

comment Why does the price of Catalytic Converters vary so much?
For my car, you can find identical manifold converters ("maniverter") that range from anywhere between 300 and 650 in the same store. It would make sense if they were different type, but they are all the same OE part. The only thing I can think of for a 100 % price difference is that the cheaper one has less precious metals, but I don't know how much practical difference that will make for passing the emissions inspections. Logic would say the less "absorber" metals, the higher the emissions. Of course, it is not required to run a car, but it might also affect performance a little bit?

Well, it's an aftermarket stereo, with the manual some 8 years gone :)

comment What is the pin or keycode for ELM327 bluetooth OBDII adapter?
FYI, if you have used both a computer and a smartphone, make sure you unpair the other one first before connecting with the other device. I could not connect to mine because the phone was paired with it, even though it was not in use on the phone. The message I got in the computer Bluetooth settings was "Try again a later time" (or something like that), even with the correct PIN. After unpairing it with the phone, it worked just fine with the 1234 pin.
