You can never be too careful when it comes to the health of your vehicle. That's why so many auto industry professionals love the advantages of using an OBD2 scanner. It allows you to connect to a vehicle's computer from any WiFi-enabled device, such as your tablet or smartphone.
About OBD2 scanners
Whether you buy an Autel, Foxwell or unbranded OBD2 scanner, it is sure to become a tool you can rely on for engine diagnostics. It's the ideal companion for the various auto body shop supplies you also keep in the garage. This tool supports up to 9 OBD2 test modes on OBD2 compliant vehicles, which enables technicians to accurately diagnose a number of complex issues. The scanner will ideally work with all OBDII/EOBD compliant cars, trucks and hybirds. While this tool provides a sophisticated solution, it is also ergonomic and easy to use.
Main features and benefits
Ideally you want your OBD2 scan tool to have generic OBD2 diagnostic function compatibility with OBD compliant vehicles from at least 1996 onwards. Other features to look out for include TFT colour display and 8 to 18 volt external power. Your OBD2 scan tool should ideally be able to: determine why the check engine light is on; reset monitors; retrieve and clear specific codes; display live sensor test data; provide memory backup and battery backup for data analysis; and retrieve vehicle information (VIN, CIN and CVN). Technicians should also be able to discover the root causes of problems via the trouble-shooting tips.
