Product Description

Product Description

A great solution to provide the DIY'er with an immediate recommendation on the urgency of the Check Engine Light problem. New Urgency Indicators tell how urgent the Check Engine Light problem may be to a vehicle's drivability. In addition to the emissions and MIL status features, PocketScan Plus offers access to dynamic web support information which includes common components, possible symptoms, and common causes related to trouble codes.

When your Check Engine light turns on, find out immediately if you should stop or keep driving with the Actron PocketScan Plus OBD-II Code Reader with Urgency Indicator. There are many reasons that can cause this indicator to appear -- from minor to critical -- but the PocketScan Plus is here to provide you with the code information you need as well as an immediate recommendation on the urgency of the Check Engine Light problem.

PocketScan Plus gives you the information you need.

PocketScan Plus Provides Critical Information
The Check Engine Light appears on the dashboards of all late-model vehicles to signal that there is a possible mechanical or electrical problem that needs to be addressed. The compact and easy-to-use PocketScan Plus attaches to the automobile's OBD-II port, displaying the error code involved on its large, backlit display. Three severity levels tell you at a glance if it safe to continue driving or if immediate repair is needed. The PocketScan Plus also puts you in touch with the emissions status of vehicles and allows you to easily review and erase codes from the automobile.

PocketScan Plus makes connectivity easy.

The PocketScan Plus Can Save You Time and Money
According to a nationwide phone survey, over 20% of all vehicles newer than 12 years old have experienced a Check Engine Light appearance in the past 12 months. That’s 32 million automobiles on the road every year that are signaling for a potentially costly repair. Your time and money are valuable, and the information provided by the PocketScan Plus can save you both by telling you if the Check Engine Light is appearing for a critical reason, or for a less important one.

Be Smarter When You Talk to Your Technician
The PocketScan Plus gives you the information you need before you visit your auto technician. Not only does it provide you with the code for the Check Engine Light, but you also receive access to an online information database that further explains the problem, its severity, possible symptoms, and common causes--all in easy-to-understand terms. Being empowered with this wealth of knowledge enables you to visit your auto technician with confidence.

Easy-to-Use Features and Helpful Customer Support
The PocketScan Plus is compatible with all 1996 and newer vehicles. Once connected, it automatically links to the vehicle computer, displaying both Check Engine Light error codes and severity on its large backlit display. Issue severity is color coded for easy reference: green for no problems present, yellow for non-dangerous issues, orange meaning repair at your earliest convenience, and red for a problem that needs immediate repair. Three large buttons allow you to turn the unit on and off, read current codes, and review and erase past codes from the vehicle's onboard computer. A convenient battery backup saves information in the system, allowing you to continue reviewing codes away from the vehicle.

Actron makes certain that you will always have the information you need when your Check Engine Light appears. Their online database is available 24 hours a day to explain codes as well as their causes, severity, and symptoms. You can also contact their toll free phone number for additional assistance. Furthermore, the PocketScan Plus has a USB port that allows it to be updated from your computer, ensuring that you will always have correct, current information to diagnose the vehicles of today as well as those of the future.

I wanted a simple, inexpensive code reader, and the PocketScan itself is a great solution. Works as advertised, relatively easy to use, helped me diagnose and reset my check engine light. BUT, one of the reasons I picked this product over several other, less expensive readers was the promise of Actron's website for looking up more detail on the codes. Well, what they DON'T tell you is that you only get five free lookups, then you have to pay a monthly subscription for more! I don't mind that, but they should say so up front. Then, when I registered on the website for my free lookups, it didn't work. I complained to customer service, and they manually set me up on a completely different website. So if the code lookup website is important to you, don't be taken in by a marketing promise. Finally, I have yet to find any place on Actron's website that includes the promised updates that you can download to the code reader itself. Might be another empty promise.

I am a complete novice with OBD tools. I have never used one before. I have an old truck that's check engine light came on some months ago. A mechanic turned it off for me and it did not come back on again until recently. I needed a tool to find out if I had a real problem or an anomaly, so I bought this tool.
The owner's manual directions that come with it are explicit and clear, thus making the tool extremely user friendly. Within a matter of moments I had the troubles diagnosed and then, seeing that they were the same codes as before, I turned the check engine light off again myself. The tool does that as well, which is wonderful. The tool's display is back lit so it is easy to read the codes in a dimly lit environment such as a gagage.
NOTE However. I had difficulty disconnecting the tool from the truck. I figured there was some sort of mechanical snap lock holding it on, but I could not find it. I had to call the 1-800 help line number they have in the users manual to find out how to disconnect it. It turns out that ALL OBD II connectors are, by law, a friction fit and there is no snap lock holding it on. All one must do is hold the vehicle's part of the connection and wiggle and pull the tool's connector part off. This information is not the owner's manual.

First scanner I received was faulty - the display had a lot of dead pixels. Amazon replaced it very quickly - as usual! Second unit is great. Reads codes and pending codes, can turn off the dreaded Check Engine Light. Extensive online resource from the manufacturer can assist in narrowing down the possible causes of the codes and Check Engine Light. Very easy to use, once you learn all the special lingo.
Probably not rugged enough for professional/daily use, but great for the average home user. I would say the "weakest link" would be the cable, where it joins the unit. The stress-reliever could be more robust. For the money I think it's the best, and I checked out dozens.

I recently purchased the CP9410 because of its low cost and claimed ability to work with all OBD2 vehicles, including those with the newer CAN protocol. While it works fine with two pre-CAN Mazda vehicles, it failed to work with my wife's 2009 Hyundai Sonata which is CAN based. It keeps displaying a Link Error because it can't communicate with the vehicle's engine computer.

Actron's technical support asked me to go to Autozone to see if their scanner could read my wife's car. The local Autozone used an Actron CP9175 and it worked fine. Actron's tech support forwarded my problem to engineering to develop a new software release to correct this problem. Since this will take some time to develop, they offered to send me a CP9175 at no charge since we know it works with the 2009 Hyundai.

Actron's technical support was very helpful and their replacement of my unit with a more expensive model is superb customer support. It's refreshing to see a company that still stands behind their products and wants to keep their customers happy.

If you get the dreaded CEL and need to know what is causing it to illuminate, this is the tool for you. Designed for the home mechanic, it is complete with easy to use interface and large display. (great when you don't have your glasses on). I had a code in it that did not show up in their online database. I found it though, searching the internet for more Honda codes. Once you get the code, you have the option of clearing the MIL, which turns off the Light. Only shut off the CEL once you have solved the problem.
The tool also gives you all of the Readiness Monitors status. So, you can tell when it is OK to go for the emissions test.

This is the first product that I had to send back to Amazon. First problem could not register item's serial number to get online support or software. Phone support recommended that I use Equus site for codes (their competitor). Contacted manager, which had 3-way call with their tech support no one could help. Item was uable to reset IM codes on 03 Explorer. Battery compartment latch was broken. Made in China with warning for lead on cable. Returned and purchased Equus 3100 for about $23 more. Great software, great tech support, all cables included and all codes in unit on the screen, updatable with included USB cable. New model Equus 3100e, latest greatest model w/software. Great tool.
