Hi fellow caddy owners. I am a neophyte as I just bought my 05 red STS this week. SO far I am very happy. I tried to scan the car with my inexpensive OBDII scan tool and it will not link/scan. IS there a special scan tool that you need for this car? Also, is there a way to get the codes on the NAV screen?

Thanks in advance!

no way to get codes on the nav screen (that i know of at least)
don't think there's a special scan tool either, but a newer data bus on these cars (GMLAN/canbus)
look for that in your next tool

It's going to take a pretty sophisticated scan tool to get anything other than engine codes. Try TECHII, OTC Genisys, or AutoEnginuity.
