    Same! Just happened to me last week with an OBD-II bluetooth adapter in a 2005 Camry. ABS light started flashing on the first start-up!

    The ScanGauge-II and -E are the only OBD devices I've used that haven't caused any problems on any car.

    My OBDLink LX has not caused any such problems with Speck.

    Some devices work, some don't. The ones we had problems with worked perfectly fine and haven't given any trouble in 4 years in various gm's, ford, Hyundai and dodge's I've tried. I even tried them in all my junk I had with no problems, just had problems with the Mirage for some weird reason. The Mirage has a crazy sensitive electrical system. Doesn't help matters having such thin wiring throughout. As I discovered, even the slightest sign of corrosion in a connector will cause an assortment of weird problems.
