    I have a bluetooth obd2 scanner and have both TorquePro and Dr Prius. Would what I have be able to do what mini vci and techstream do? I was looking up on how to bleed my brakes and apparently the vci and techstream are near essential

    There's a thread in here somewhere of a guy who figured out how to bleed the brakes using a paper clip to connect jumpers via the OBD2 port. It was posted back in about 2014 or so...

    Oh ya I remember seeing that thread. I might still just have my mechanic friend do it, don't know if I really wanna take any chances. Plus I've saved enough money on labor by doing a lot of maintenance projects myself since getting the '04 Prius a week ago
