Carplugs.com is closing

Posted in OBD2 Basics by Administrator on the April 15th, 2019

Carplugs.com is closing effective May 19th, 2019.  We would like to thank all our customers for the past several years. 

E-commerce has changed substantially since 2003.  We could not keep up with all of the changes in SEO and competition from the big Internet players.

Carplugs was born from an idea I had about making a simple way to purchase the J1962 connector.  The plug was impossible to buy anywhere at the time besides than wholesale. I brainstormed with friends at Active Electronics on Metropolitan Boulevard in Saint Léonard, Canada. 

Later on, we added OBD2 cables and OBD2 scanners from Scantool.net.

Thanks to Yoland Pagé, Dany Giusti and Phillipe Marineau, former employees at Active Electronics.

I also wish to thanks Scantool.net.

Happy trails,

Mario I
