When your Check Engine light turns on, find out immediately if you should stop or keep driving with the Actron PocketScan Plus OBD-II Code Reader with Urgency Indicator. There are many reasons that can cause this indicator to appear -- from minor to critical -- but the PocketScan Plus is here to provide you with the code information you need as well as an immediate recommendation on the urgency of the Check Engine Light problem.
PocketScan Plus Provides Critical Information
The Check Engine Light appears on the dashboards of all late-model vehicles to signal that there is a possible mechanical or electrical problem that needs to be addressed. The compact and easy-to-use PocketScan Plus attaches to the automobile's OBD-II port, displaying the error code involved on its large, backlit display. Three severity levels tell you at a glance if it safe to continue driving or if immediate repair is needed. The PocketScan Plus also puts you in touch with the emissions status of vehicles and allows you to easily review and erase codes from the automobile.
The PocketScan Plus Can Save You Time and Money
According to a nationwide phone survey, over 20% of all vehicles newer than 12 years old have experienced a Check Engine Light appearance in the past 12 months. That’s 32 million automobiles on the road every year that are signaling for a potentially costly repair. Your time and money are valuable, and the information provided by the PocketScan Plus can save you both by telling you if the Check Engine Light is appearing for a critical reason, or for a less important one.
Be Smarter When You Talk to Your Technician
The PocketScan Plus gives you the information you need before you visit your auto technician. Not only does it provide you with the code for the Check Engine Light, but you also receive access to an online information database that further explains the problem, its severity, possible symptoms, and common causes--all in easy-to-understand terms. Being empowered with this wealth of knowledge enables you to visit your auto technician with confidence.
Easy-to-Use Features and Helpful Customer Support
The PocketScan Plus is compatible with all 1996 and newer vehicles. Once connected, it automatically links to the vehicle computer, displaying both Check Engine Light error codes and severity on its large backlit display. Issue severity is color coded for easy reference: green for no problems present, yellow for non-dangerous issues, orange meaning repair at your earliest convenience, and red for a problem that needs immediate repair. Three large buttons allow you to turn the unit on and off, read current codes, and review and erase past codes from the vehicle's onboard computer. A convenient battery backup saves information in the system, allowing you to continue reviewing codes away from the vehicle.
