        I spent a weeekend following the circuitry the hard way and only elliminated the starter, starter solenoid, starter relay and fuses....
        I purchased this to help debug a start/crank problem on a VW Bug, it called out the exact sensor first time [ transmition selector sensor].

              Hi Kande, I'm glad to assist you. This Actron Elite AutoScanner OBD II and Can Scan Tool (Part No. CP9185) can be used to read, record, and review LIVE engine data. It reads/erases generic and manufacturer specific DTCs and definitions. It displays graphing data on screen and updateable online. I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

          • Q:

            Hello, Will this scanner work with 1994-1996 Buick roadmaster wagons with the LT-1 350 V-8 motor. I am used to using an old OTC monitor that I can look at cross-counts, voltage readings, known good sensor values. I have to borrow the OTC, so that is why I am looking at this scanner. I am wondering if I should maybe purchase an OTC scanner. They are much more costly though.

              A:

              I'm glad to help you, Tim! Cam Retard is an enhanced parameter that the CP9185 is not capable of showing. The only DIY level tools that we have offered that shows this parameter would be the OTC3499N. No Actron model has this capability.

              Happy to help you with your question Clem! This scanner will not be able to read the static timing for your truck. For static timing you would need a timing light.

              A:

              Hi Frank, glad to assist you! The tool is for engine diagnostics only. No other system can be read by this tool including the TPMS module. You would need a Professional scan tool to access this system and the tool will depend on the vehicle being scanned. All systems outside engine are proprietary to the manufacturer and it is at their discretion if they release the information to diagnose those systems.
