Your vehicle’s ‘check engine’ light went off and on over and over again. What’s going on? This may happen, regardless of the brand and make of your car – whether you are driving a Ford, Audi, Volkswagen, or a Toyota. Don’t panic – Actron CP9135 AutoScanner will be there to your rescue!
When warning light come on, it’s just your car trying to tell you that something is not quite right. Like R2D2 in StarWars, the Actron CP9135 AutoScanner (OBD II compliant) can plug into your On-Board Diagnosis II (OBD II) compliant vehicle to access the information stored in your vehicle’s computer. It can be used on all OBD II compliant vehicles made in North America, Europe, and Asia since 1996.
The Actron CP9135 AutoScanner features a large, easy-to-read LCD screen that displays the definition of the trouble code. For ODB II compliant (1996 and later) vehicles, the Actron CP9135 AutoScanner provides trouble code data, then erases trouble code and turns the Check Engine light off. Although you may still have to fix the problem, the scanner turns off the “Check Engine” warning light on your vehicle’s dash so you will not be distracted while you resume your drive.
The Actron CP9135 AutoScanner is simple and easy even for a non-professional to use. The attached cable with OBD II 16-pin connector provides connections for both power and data, while the eight-foot cable and the rugged housing are both oil-resistant and grease-resistant for added durability. The long cord that connects to the computer facilitates ease of use in tight spaces. Once connected, just press the “READ” key and the very user friendly menu displays a variety of information in a snap. Use the Monitor Status and Inspection / Maintenance (I/M) Readiness function to ascertain your vehicle’s chances of passing an emissions inspection. The I/M Readiness is a pragmatic function to use just before having your vehicle tested for compliance to the standards of a state emissions program.
One very important thing to take note of is that all emission testing facilities will not pass any vehicle that has an illuminated “Check Engine” light at the time of the inspection – even if the light is only lit to remind you of an over-due oil change or a 60,000-mile tune-up. Using the Actron CP9135 AutoScanner, you can turn off the check engine light and clear the emissions test without any unnecessary hassle. The menu also reminds you of any pending DTCs and reads the status of the Malfunction Indicator Lamp. By reading the Malfunction Indicator Lamp status the scanner gives some insight into what might cause your Check Engine light to turn on in the near future. In this way, the Actron CP9135 scanner is also able to provide some preventive measures to help a non-professional user to monitor a vehicle’s on board systems.
In conclusion, the above useful functions of the Actron CP9135 AutoScanner, together with the simple “READ” and “ERASE” keys that are used to read and erase DTCs, make the Actron CP9135 AutoScanner a perfect tool for identifying and resolving problems with your vehicle, thereby relieving you from unnecessary headaches and more importantly, instead of paying big bucks to the car mechanics, help you to locate and repair simple, straight forward issues on your car yourself thereby saving you money.
