It has been updated from over 3 million fixes to over 4.3 million verified fixes specific to the vehicle’s make, model, year and engine. CodeConnect provides actual fixes to the problem causing the check engine light to illuminate – providing the fix from the CodeConnect database. AutoScanner Plus will indicate on the screen which codes have the CodeConnect details available. Then it’s a simple push of the button to get the CodeConnect information. These actual vehicle fixes have been reported and then verified by Actron’s team of ASE certified technicians. This Actron’s AutoScanner Plus includes domestic ABS code coverage and now includes Honda, Nissan, Toyota and Hyundai for 1996-2009 vehicles, record and playback data stream and on-screen graphing.

It has optional battery power, field updateable via USB port as well as the ability to print data to your PC. Other features include the ability to display OBD II generic and manufacturer specific codes and definitions on screen as well as read and display live engine data, MIL status, diagnostic trouble codes, I/M monitors (emissions), pending diagnostic trouble codes, freeze frame data (snapshot of vehicle data at the time of the fault), VIN number, CVN and CAL ID, state OBD check, code lookup library and OBD II drive cycle mode.

It is suitable both for advanced automotive do-it-yourselfers (DIYers) and automotive professionals alike. Not only does it capture and analyze data like other scan tools, but it also can help you prioritize troubleshooting with access to the most probable solution based on top reported fixes specific to the vehicle’s make, model, year and engine. Additional features include live engine data, graph live data, freeze frame data, drive cycle mode, print functionality and much more.

The Advanced Handheld Scanner That Troubleshoots for You

Since the 1980′s standardized Onboard Diagnostic systems (first OBD-I and currently OBD-II) mandated for virtually all cars and light trucks manufactured for the US market have provided automotive technicians, and increasingly DIYers with insight into the increasingly complex inner workings of modern passenger vehicles. Traditionally professional grade diagnostic results required large and/or expensive scanning tools to translate diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and other data generated by the internal computer networks of your vehicle when the check engine/malfunction indicator light (MIL) on the dashboard goes off. Now there is a much better way using the Actron CP9580A AutoScanner Plus Scan Tool.

CodeConnect quickly pinpoints and suggests fixes specific to your vehicle

The Enhanced CP9580A AutoScanner Plus with CodeConnect does way more than just displaying the trouble codes and definitions seen in other handheld scan tools. At the touch of a button it can also actually help prioritize troubleshooting using the top reported fixes related to these codes, specific to your vehicle’s make, model, year and engine. Once codes register on the device, AutoScanner Plus indicates on screen which codes have the CodeConnect details available. To gain access to these possible fixes, all the user needs to do is push the CodeConnect button in the middle of the keypad and the most probable solutions according to the data on file will be displayed. CodeConnect is a comprehensive database of 4.3 million ASE verified fixes for the trouble codes that cause the check engine light to illuminate, providing a shortcut for troubleshooting efforts. Advanced functionality built into AutoScanner Plus also includes advanced domestic ABS code coverage allowing read/erase capability for most 1996-2010 GM, Ford and Chrysler and 1996-2009 Toyota, Honda, Hyundai and Nissan vehicles (click to see an ABS compatibility chart). Additional features include LIVE engine data, graph LIVE data, freeze frame data, drive cycle mode, updateable (via USB port), print functionality and much more.

Actron CP9580A Enhanced – Good Scanner for the Auto Enthusiast
I guess I’m kind of picky when it comes to tools and testers for my vehicles. I have a 2012 FORD F-150 (EcoBoost Engine), and really didn’t “need” a code scanner to diagnose a particular problem. However I try to stay up with what technology is available for the backyard mechanic. Additionally, I have not had good experiences at the dealership as far as diagnosing engine issues. So my first line of defense FOR MY OWN KNOWLEDGE was to buy a good code scanner, that would tell me more than just what is causing the check engine light to display.

The Actron CP9580A Enhanced Scanner did just that. It goes WAY beyond the check engine light, giving you real time data on how your engine is performing . . . or not performing! And if a problem is developing, I would rather be proactive and do the research myself, rather than have the dealership tell me a laundry list of techno-talk that may or may not be entirely true. The Actron CP9580A Enhanced does everything it is…

All-in-One Backlit Screen and One-Push Button Functions
Handheld diagnostic tools should put all the information a user needs right in the palm of your hand, but too often other scanning tools bury this data within the device, requiring you to navigate through multiple menus to find what you want. The 3160 is different. Using a combination of its patented all-in-one backlit screen, that allows for viewing 25 pieces of vital information in three languages–English, French or Spanish–all at once, even in low light conditions without having to change screens, and single-button function access to minimize menu scrolling, users are guaranteed quick, efficient access to data they need.

Patented Emission Status LEDs
Over 30 States now use an OBD2 based system to check for emissions readiness, making it more important than ever to be aware of the status of your vehicle and to keep it running in top condition. With this in mind, the Innova 3160 has been designed with the ability to read the exact same emissions information as these state-required tests do to determine your chances of passing the first time around. Built around a simple color-coded system where Green = Pass, Yellow = Potential Problems and Red = Fail, users are able to quickly diagnose potential emission issues with the Innova 3160. Other tool manufacturers charge over $100 for this feature alone and a separate tool has to be purchased, but the 3160 includes this with the price of purchase.

The Equus Innova 3160 also comes with access to RepairSolutions through canobd2.com. RepairSolutions allows users to take control of vehicle diagnostics by providing you with the complete solution as to why your “Check Engine” light is on.

Consumer Review
Innova 3160
I was tired of the cheap OBD readers and wanted something much better. I also wanted something I could read the ABS system with. The Innova 3160 does the trick. It is easy to use and understand. I like the way it prompts you in order to get what you are looking for. It has an excellent screen with the exact information you need to make repairs. It is obvious that they consulted with a repair tech when they designed it. I haven’t tried to up-date it from the computer as yet, but it has all the necessary items and information with it to do so. On the down side, it doesn’t have an explanation for all the manufacturer codes, especially the ABS codes. I found that I am going to their web site quite often to get the expanation. The web-site is very good and helpful though. I really like it. The worst thing is the CHEAP carrying case. The unit won’t even fit into it with the cable attached. That means that you are always removing and replacing the cable. I’m sure that isn’t…

Equus3150
I bought the 3150 to diagnose an emmissions problem on a 97 camry and it worked great for that, however when I went to check on the abs system it stated that it wasn`t supported, reading the information on the box after the fact I realized that the abs diagnostics support very few vehicles and none of mine, 2001 dodge ram, 2009 hyundai sonota, 2001 honda civic.So do your homework before you purchase the 3150 for the abs feature.

Actron ABS BrakeScan Saves Time and Money

The BrakeScan’s robust code library is embedded right in the tool, and you can view necessary information on the large, backlit screen.

Consumer Review
Save $$$$$ Fix your brakes yourself
This is to ABS what the other Code Scan tools are for your engine. It gives you historical codes and current codes so you can get a good over all picture of whats happening. You must have a basic understanding of ABS and the Sensors / Components that make up the system. If you do then this is the tool that will save you a fortune by not having to take your vehicle to a dealer! If you have no idea of how ABS works, keep taking your car to the dealer or learn fast so you can save! Only possible complaint some may have is that the tool will not reset the ABS light like you can with the Check Engine light with the other scan tools. Me personally, I want to see the historical codes so that I can ascertain if a problem is intermittant or not. Once you repair what is wrong your lignt will go out anyway. Most ABS computers reset themselves each time you start your car. The Light comes on for a reason!
