Product Description

Product Description

Actron diagnostic scanners are the fast, easy way to diagnose and turn off your vehicle's Check Engine Light. All Actron scanners are compatible with vehicles from 1996 to present. They all display emissions status as well, which can save time and money when renewing your vehicle's registration. Each Actron scanner also provides access to, an online service that provides additional diagnostic and repair information.

The Actron CP9575 OBD-II and CAN AutoScanner Scan Tool is the next generation of automotive diagnostic scan tools. CAN protocol compliant, not only does it read and display generic and manufacturer-specific diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and definitions on-screen, but it also comes loaded with advanced features rare in a tool in its price range. These include live real-time data, 6 modes of OBD-II data, trilingual support, freeze frame data, state OBD check (emissions), drive cycle mode and more.

Generic and Manufacturer Codes and Definition On-screen

Since the 1980's standardized Onboard Diagnostic systems—first OBD-I and currently OBD-II—mandated for virtually all cars and light trucks manufactured for the US market have provided automotive technicians with insight into the increasingly complex inner workings of modern passenger vehicles. Professional technicians utilize large, expensive diagnostic tools to translate the diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and other data generated by the internal computer networks of in your vehicle when the malfunction indicator light (MIL) on your dashboard goes off. The cost for this is passed on to you by your mechanic, but mid-level to advanced do-it-yourselfers (DIY) can now gain access to this information and much of the functionality for a fraction of the cost of a visit to the service center with the Actron CP9575 AutoScanner Scan Tool.

With Actron CP9575 AutoScanner Scan Tool DIYers who want to know detailed information about their vehicle's condition can instantly and affordably gain access to both generic and manufacturer-specific OBD-II codes generated by their vehicles and their respective code definition, all on the unit's easy to read backlit screen. These codes can be easily navigated through using a single hand with the patented one-touch read and erase buttons both during normal use parameters of their vehicle and in the event of an MIL event. Designed for ease of use, the CP9575 is CAN compliant (an important OBD-II computer protocol), utilizes a standard 16-pin OBD-II connector and features a cable permanently connected to the unit. CAN functionality allows the CP9575 to interact with and sample data from the different diagnostic subsystems within your vehicle, while the standard pin layout and permanent orientation of the cable ensures that you will always be able connect to your vehicle's data link connector (DLC), the OBD-II input port usually located underneath your dashboard. Along with this, the unit's rugged construction, ability to power itself directly through the OBD-II cable and portable size mean that it can be stored and taken anywhere.

Professional Scan Tool Features at a Code Reader Price

In addition to displaying DTCs and their definitions, the Actron CP9575 also provides access to an impressive list of additional functionality that allows for more advanced analysis of data produced by your vehicle. Some of these prominent features include the reading and display of "freeze frame" data, which is a snapshot of the overall sensor readings from your vehicle's central computer at the time of a MIL event; access to the VIN (vehicle ID number), CVN and Cal ID; and the display of the status of your vehicle's inspection and maintenance (I/M) monitors, whose proper working is pivotal to a vehicle passing state mandated emissions tests. Add to this even more productive and convenience features like the access to live engine data, the ability to check fixes within your vehicle by displaying OBD-II Drive Cycle Mode, Internet updatability of codes, definitions and software and language support in English, Spanish and French, and the Actron CP9575 AutoScanner Scan Tool quickly distinguishes itself as a must-have tool that will easily pay for itself in maintenance costs saved.

What a great product . Pulls codes quickly with a modest description of code. In addition, it shows various sensor data(rpm, voltage, positions, temps, loads, etc...)and other various on board data that would normally require you to go to a professional shop for. I bought this actron since I was having a problem with my rear O2 sensor in one of my vehicles, which was consistently pulling 2 codes for that sensor. Initially i was resetting it hoping it was a glitch, since i wasn't in any mood to buy a rear O2 & lift the car to replace it. Well luckily with the scanner, i observed that the voltages were stagnant under all conditions. Now this was strange since the voltages dictate the exhaust temperature. The front O2 was showing varying voltages under different loads. well, to make a long story short it turns out that the sensor wiring was frayed requiring an easy splice.

The advantage of knowing on board sensor data is far better than just pulling codes... My recommendation, if you don't mind getting you hands dirty, spend a few extra bucks and get a model that can pull live sensor data like this model. Plus, it's a great show and tell for all you car buddies.

As for updating data via PC, i have yet try that.

I had an issue with my vehicle and I was tired of checking with the local automotive store for the code and clearing it when I was running some tests. Got the Actron and saved a lot of time driving back and forth, waiting for help at the store, etc. Now I can check whenever I want, at home, at the gas station, help a friend or family member out. The Actron works well, might be a bit hard to see in direct sunlight, just change the angle, the buttons feel good, not mushy, good response, I can't complain about the speed of the unit and the screen page changes. This is the only one I have extensive use with, I can't say if it is fast, slow, etc. The speed is adequate for me, personnally. If you own a few cars or deal with a few and some older that will then to exhibit issues with codes, I highly recommend owning an auto scanner, it will save a lot of time and frustration.

Please click YES if my review have been helpful to you, it will encourage me to continue writing and updating my reviews, and leave a comment if you have any questions, I will be more than happy to answer if I can be of help.

I bought this guy to retrieve a DTC that came on recently. It worked as expected. The user interface is simple and easy to understand. If you can find your way to this review using your web browser, you will have no problem operating the device. A minor physical annoyance is that the buttons could be easily trapped in their own housings after being depressed (so called sticky button).

You may have read a lot of comments about the negative experience of updating the software of this device here, but I want to share my positive experience.

The CP9575 comes with software version 5109. According to Actron's website, at the time of this writing, the latest version is 4346. I am not sure why they numbered the newer version with a smaller version number, but it is what it is.

I simply downloaded and installed the Scanning Suite 3.0 from Actron's website. You should basically follow the "Actron Scanning Suite 3.0 Installation Instructions" found in Actron's website. A couple of points may be worth noting:

(1) It is known and stated clearly that the Scanning Suite 3.0 does not work in 64-bit OS. I am sure if you are savvy enough to buy such a device, you should know what kind of OS you are running. The platform where I successfully performed the software update is XP Professional SP3 32-bit.

(2) I read in a review under the other model, CP9580, that the default installation directory (destination) did not work. The default destination prompted by the installation wizard is "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Scanning Suite\Actron\". I don't know if that indeed does not work, but to avoid any potential trouble, I changed the installation directory to "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Actron".

I have had a similar experience to that of other user's who had connection problems. I downloaded the Actron Scanning Suite software and tried to update the tool. This is a mistake - I would highly recommend you do not load this software on your PC. It does not work properly with Win XP (unsigned drivers, for one). The software wound up permanently disabling my scanner. The people at Actron are no help - their only advice was to return the unit now that the Scanning Suite software had disabled the device. The software is essentially poorly written from both a user interface and a hardware connection point of view - terrible systems engineering here. It's like something written in the mid-1980's by beginning programmers. I'll try again using the scanner but will *never* try to use this software again. I suspect Actron is well aware of this weakness but doesn't know how to fix the problem - surprising ineptitude for such a large company. Of course, Amazon is great with their return policy.

1/25/2014 Update: Apparently the software has now been fixed; this is great news since it is an otherwise very nice product. As one reviewer notes below, be sure to get the Scanning Suite software of at least version 4. I changed the original rating to be at least 4 stars now since the software was the main reason for a negative response. Having used this scanner for more than two years, it has always worked well for me reading it directly from the device display.
