I wouldn't say that all do, but most will. If you're shopping for one, it should tell you in the description that it reads trouble codes.

What is 16-32?

By the way, I saw a post last night about Bluetooth scanners that plug into the OBDII port and send live scans to your phone. You may want to look into that. I don't have any experience with them, though.

Timing isn't something I've had to deal with, so I'm honestly not much help there.

I did see your other thread about the timing. I'd suggest replying back to Ron on there to answer the questions he had for you. You can also ask him about the scanners on there too. He'll be more likely to see your questions on a thread he's already subscribed to because he should get email notifications whenever a new post is made in that thread. By making a new thread related to the same issue, you're actually decreasing your chances of someone seeing your new question.
