The booster pretty much works or it doesn't. Symptoms for a bad booster are a hissing noise under the dash that indicates a faulty diaphragm and a high, hard brake pedal due to a lack of assist from the booster. A faulty booster will not cause the brake pedal to bleed down.

Anyone know if there is an affordable aftermarket scan tool that will run this function? If so, which one or ones?

Thanks in advance for any help.
