Although not a show stopper, the buttons stick if not pressed directly over the center of the buttons. I returned the first one thinking it might just be a bad one, but the second one did the same thing. Still a decent code reader for the money !

I work on my own car and use this tool to diagnose potential problems. It can also be used to remove your check engine light. It does not display data other than the code for that issue, so if your wanting live data or more extensive explanations of the issue you will need a more advanced reader. It does not have a feature to show data via usb to pc so this is something I'd personally like to have, but for the price I can certainly understand why it does not. Once again this is as basic as they come. One feature I did like about this reader is that it runs from the power of the vehicle so no additional power source is needed.

Need to read the instructions before using and search for the codes online after pulling them. After reading the instructions, it was easy for me to pull and clear codes on my 2013 honda pilot

Great code reader/eraser! I just wish a code list was included and not have to search Internet or pay their site for the code explanation. I guess this is standard.

Comments about Actron Pocket Scan Code Reader:

My motor shook, misfire. I bought this scanner.
1. I removed code, to see if it is a glitch. Took 30 seconds. Code reappeared... Cylinder 3 misfire.
2. Checked oil level, vacuum leak, everything was good.
3. Did compression test on Cylinder 3, checked out fine.
4. I knew the exact cylinder that was misfiring. Swapped coils... still misfire on only that cylinder.
5. Took out Spark plug, replaced. Misfire is gone.

This tool saved me money... "Engine diagnostic" alone... $100. Time... Narrowed problem down to one cylinder out of 6!! Convenience & Ease... Without code reader I would have had to drive my car with motor shaking.. misfire to get codes checked. Imagine if the engine stalled on the way... Towing $150.

This is a simple & very useful tool. OBDII & Code reader is a must I think! Imagine buying a used car... With a tool like this, you can make a much more informed decision!

Comments about Actron Pocket Scan Code Reader:

Easy to pick up and the product worked great. I was able to figure out that my catalysts were bad and told my mechanic the exact codes I had pulled, which made his job even easier. Although I'm sure he also read the codes just to make sure.

    does this unit work on foreign cars? such as Infiniti?
    Asked on 3/20/2017 by JA from Dallas, TX

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hi JA, glad to assist you! If the vehicle was sold through a dealership in the U.S. it would comply to U.S. Emissions OBD II and would be capable of being read by the CP9125 C. If the vehicle is located outside of the U.S. or was purchased from another country and imported direct to the U.S. then it would not conform to U.S. Emissions OBD II and would not be capable of being read by any of our tools. A tool from the country of origin of the vehicle would be required.
