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. Now there is a much better way using the Actron CP9580A AutoScanner Plus Scan Tool.

CodeConnect quickly pinpoints and suggests fixes specific to your vehicle

The Enhanced CP9580A 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 needs to do is push the CodeConnect button in the middle of the keypad and the most probable solutions according to the data on file will be displayed. CodeConnect is a comprehensive database of 4.3 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 1996-2010 GM, Ford and Chrysler and 1996-2009 Toyota, Honda, Hyundai and Nissan vehicles (click to see an ABS compatibility chart). Additional features include LIVE engine data, graph LIVE data, freeze frame data, drive cycle mode, updateable (via USB port), print functionality and much more.

Style Name: Without Hard Case
I have had this tool over a year now and before I bought it, I had read some reviews with bad comments about updating this product. It is a hard product to update but I have some information as how to update it. I got this info from actron's support people. I was told to go to otctools.com, select support and then downloads. When you get there you will find a drop down menu and you will want to select 3111 and down load it. Its a big file about 321 mega bytes. I ran the program with my actron cp9580 hooked up to my pc. I selected to update the Otc suite and It recognized my actron and updated to the 4.0 scanning suite found on actron.com. The whole otc program converted to the 4.0 scanning suite and I was then able to update my Actron. The update Is great because not only does it go to the later veheicles it will detect them automatically. I did this after spending a few hours on Actrons website downloading scanning suite 4.0 and following the details as how to update it there. Believe me this works. I went out and put it on my wifes car which is a 2009 and it detected her vehicle with ease and no more selecting domestic, year and make of vehicle etc. I have used this tool a few times now and it works great. My email address is rlg@yrless.net in case you may have any questions.

Nice product in many respects. I like the realtime data and the Code Connect features. Out of the box, the product will need updating and the complete manual(which does not come with the unit and must be downloaded) is sometimes incongruous with the ScanSuite instructions and what is indicated on the 9580A screen.
Furthermore, it has produced "undefined Diagnostic Trouble Codes". Undefined is right! I have a complete set of factory service manuals that have no reference to the DTC displayed on the 9580A and no forum I've found references it. After resetting the codes and performing the drive cycle, it would never 'make ready' one component and still displayed the undefined DTC; even after passing a state inspection where the print out said this component was 'OK' and no Diagnostic Trouble Codes existed. This was true whether I selected the vehicle from the 9580A predefined list or reverted to Global OBDII/EOBD settings. Fixing real problems is bad enough, but chasing down phantom codes and false "incomplete component' status indications can really drag you down.

Seems like a few things have been fixed since Ricks review, here are the instructions and most important part is setting the unit to program mode. if you do not set it to program mode it will fail the search for COM port every time.
Instructions:
download actron Launch pad from Actron.com/downloads, select CP9580
it is a 13.6 MB file and seems to be locally hosted because it takes about 6 min to download
run the installer.
once the installer is done launch Actron Launch Pad
Click Tool Update
plug your scanner into your USB port now
In the Main Menu, arrow down to System Setup and press ENTER
In the System Setup menu, arrow down to Program Mode and press ENTER
Next, Next,Next
detailed instructions can be on actron.com, sorry amazon won't let me link to them

Style Name: Without Hard Case Verified Purchase
After reading many reviews, I had originally decided upon the Innova 3160B. That is until I saw that the Actron is exactly the same as the OTC brand which appears to also be related to Bosch brand, so I changed my mind at the last minute and bought the Actron CP9580A. After reading so many negative reviews, I will admit I was reluctant and worried I might be buying a problem.
I took delivery on my Actron yesterday, spent that evening reading the manual and connecting to the internet to try and update my programing. I read where the OTC website is the place to update, so that is where I started. I want to say that my office PC is running Win7 Pro and it would not change the programing into Actron and load on my Scanner. So I tried my laptop, which is also running Win7 Pro (both are 64 bit) and although it would load on my laptop, it still would not recognize my scanner. So I did what only other choice I had, go to Actron's website and see if it would work for me. On my office PC the program (OTC Scanning Suit 4.0 or Actron Scanning Suite 4.0) would load, but not setup or be recognized. Once I downloaded the Actron version onto my laptop, it fired up immediately, setup and recognized my scanner immediately also. The updated software was downloaded in 8 minutes (I also have the fastest download capability my ISP offers at 50mbps). Once I attached the Data Link USB to the scanner and laptop, it recognized the scanner immediately and asked if I wanted to check for updates. I said "Yes" and within a the 8 minutes, it was updating my scanner. Once finished, I disconnected my scanner and turned it back on to see what program was now loaded and it read "SW ID: 6A4D) the newest and most current software is now loaded onto my scanner.

I bought the scanner to help me diagnose a "Check Engine" light warning on my 2006 Toyota Corolla. The scanner directions are adequate and the scanner is easy to use. The scanner read the ECU diagnotic code and advised that the issue had to do with a lean engine combustion issue. The scanner provided a number of possible scenarios that could result in this code. I went after the simplest first, which was cleaning the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor. Pulled the sensor, cleaned it.....problem solved for no additional cost. The scanner has more capability than I have explored T this point, but so far this device has met my expectations.
