The Actron CP9580 AutoScanner Plus OBD II, CAN & ABS Scan Tool is the ultimate choice in handheld automotive diagnostic scan tools, suitable both for advanced automotive do-it-yourselfers (DIYers) and automotive professionals alike. Not only does it capture and analyze data like other scan tools, but it also can help you prioritize troubleshooting with access to the most probable solution based on top reported fixes specific to the vehicle's make, model, year and engine. Additional features include live engine data, graph live data, freeze frame data, drive cycle mode, print functionality and much more.
The Advanced Handheld Scanner That Troubleshoots for You
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, and increasingly DIYers, with insight into the increasingly complex inner workings of modern passenger vehicles. Traditionally professional grade diagnostic results required large and/or expensive scanning tools to translate diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and other data generated by the internal computer networks of your vehicle when the check engine/malfunction indicator light (MIL) on the dashboard goes off, but now there is a much better way; the Actron CP9580 AutoScanner Plus Scan Tool.

Onboard code troubleshooting with CodeConnect
The new CP9580 AutoScanner Plus with CodeConnect does way more than just displaying the trouble codes and definitions seen in other handheld scan tools. At the touch of a button it can also actually help prioritize troubleshooting using the top reported fixes related to these codes, specific to your vehicle's make, model, year and engine. Once codes register on the device, AutoScanner Plus indicates on screen which codes have the CodeConnect details available. To gain access to these possible fixes all the user need do is push the CodeConnect button in the middle of the keypad and the most probable solutions according to the data of file will be displayed. CodeConnect is a comprehensive database of 3 million ASE verified fixes for the trouble codes that cause the check engine light to illuminate, providing a shortcut for troubleshooting efforts. Advanced functionality built into AutoScanner Plus also includes advanced domestic ABS code coverage, allowing read/erase capability for most 1996 and newer GM, Ford and Chrysler vehicles (click to see an ABS compatibility chart). And additional features include live engine data, graph live data, freeze frame data, drive cycle mode, field updateable via USB port, print functionality and much more.
