Unfortunately, I cannot test it on my car since it is in the body shop (rear end got rearranged). I will keep you updated. If you want to test it on your car let me know. We can work out a time and place.

I tried attaching a screen shot of it connected to the Cobalt.
So the software only supports OBD II and the Peake tool I purchased does not. If I understand this correctly, the software should be able to read the tranny codes but not reset the service and oil, sounds a little strange to me... I'm in ME, would love to try it but you look like you are 3000 miles away!
