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

I read that it's a little advanced and hard to navigate but maybe because I'm used to the older mechanic oriented ones it seems pretty straight forward to me. It can be updated via a computer but does not need anything out of the box.
It takes 4 aa batteries but only if u want to use it away from the vehicle. While it's plugged in it's powered by the car. I don't keep batteries in it because I have had betteries leak and ruin electronics before so I'd say that's a plus.
My old reader read 6 codes, all based on removed or modified emissions components, the Actron read 18, although some were duplicates because it would read the same code two times if one was a stored code and one was a pending code. It did in fact pick up the transmission code, which was an open circuit on my trans temurature sensor which in turn was caused by a dirty connection at the wire harness. Another code it read that the old one didn't was the open fuel level circuit. That was due to running a different fuel level sending unit but it was nice to see that it had access to it.
The Actron can run tests specific to the vehicle you are working on, for instance my power plant was originally in a 98 Lincoln mark viii so I added that vehicle to the Actron (it saved it even without batteries) and ran checks of the emissions system and the PCM for manufacturer specific issues. Later on I was able to access the short term fuel trim (stft) and it will show you a live reading in a handy graph form that's easy to read on the fly. Helped me diagnose a PVC vacuum issues because of tiny little flutters that I would not have noticed on my own.
Overall it's a very handy tool, maybe a little advance for what most people need it for, which I'm imagining is clearing the MIL after replacing an o2 sensor or a gas cap, but it's half the price of the next closest reader I could find and seems to have a high ceiling on its capabilities
I took one star off because the layout of the control buttons is not very intuitive and its easy to hit the wrong button as you try to go thru the menus. Also the manual that came with mine is not very detailed and the online manual isn't much better.
Overall I would say this is an excellent value for the money. For any reasonably handy home mechanic it is easy to use and seems to work well. It has definitely saved me more than the cost of the tool.
