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.

Comments about Actron Pocket Scan Code Reader:

Does the job. I have a car that gets error codes while I am on the road that sometimes put the car in the "limp home mode" where the car's computer justs sets the electronics to a generic setting that results in a rough running engine. I have a better reader that I run through my computer at home: this pocket one is to just leave in the car in case it happens on the road and I need to reset the codes to get the car's computer operating again. For an inexpensive unit it will do that well. For the occasional user it should work.

  • Q:

    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.
