OBD? Diagnostics?

Hello All,

I have read a few threads but everybody seems to be five steps ahead of me. I want to buy a diagnostic cable for my Fiat Stilo JTD 53 plate. I looked on ebay but have no idea where to start. I even have a Bluetooth app for my phone but even less idea what to do with that!

I am fairly technically capable but need a few sure steps to start me in the right direction.

Is an OBD ll a universal cable and they are all the same? Are there specific ones for each car? Can I just go out and any old OBD ll bluetooth connector and expect it to work?

Sorry for asking such dumb ass questions but I know I will get it if someone could just explain

Stuart
