: Self scanning OBD while driving

Is there anything wrong with doing so. When my SES comes on I try to wait to get to a redlight but is it OK it do it with the engine running and driving.
Mine is a 96 deville.

I haven't any problem doing it. As a matter of fact, I did just that tonight. I thought I heard an odd noise and curiousity got the best of me, so I went in while driving. Don't get too distracted though.

You can do it at any time. It won't hurt.
Although the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp, fancy for CEL) will be on the entire time you are in diagnostic mode... which sometimes fools me. LOL
