    Is your car's check engine light on? If it is, your car is trying to tell you something and the Actron CP9145 Super AutoScanner Diagnostic Code Scanner speaks its language. Use this scanner to unlock the information stored in your car's computer. Whenever your check engine light is on, the device can pinpoint the problem so you can fix it fast and be on your way.

    The Actron CP9145 easily scans and retrieves DTCs. View details.

    The user interface is designed for ease of use and quick control of scanning functions.

    Turn off that distracting "check engine" light.
    The scanner allows you to easily retrieve, read, and erase OBD II trouble codes, as well as display and read live vehicle data for a faster diagnosis. With optional cables, you can also retrieve OBD I codes and live data for 1984-95 Ford and GM models, and 1989-95 Chrysler models. This sophisticated, yet extremely user-friendly tool includes the CP9145 base unit and can be used on OBD II compliant cars and light trucks sold in the U.S. from 1996 to present. Plus, the tool is fully upgradeable, accommodating future vehicles.

    The CP9145 is built tough for both shop and road test use. It also features a large, easy-to-read liquid crystal display that shows the diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and their definitions. And although you still have to fix the problem, the scanner will deactivate the "check engine" light on your dash so you'll no longer be distracted while you drive. The scanner is easy to connect to your vehicle, and a user friendly menu provides a variety of information in a snap, including live engine data parameters (PIDs). Built-in help screens help you interpret the data, and you can view freeze frame data, which provides a "snapshot" of the vehicle's operating conditions at the time of the fault. Meanwhile, an internal 9-volt battery stores the latest test results for later review.

    Use the Monitor Status and I/M readiness (Inspection/Maintenance) function to determine if your vehicle is ready for an emissions test. I/M Readiness is an excellent function to use prior to having a vehicle inspected for compliance with a state emissions program, so you'll have a good idea if your vehicle will pass the standards.

    Another important thing to remember is that all emission testing facilities will fail a vehicle that has the "check engine" light illuminated at the time of the test--even if it is only lit to remind you of a past-due oil change or 60,000-mile tune-up. With this scanner, you can shut off the check engine light and pass the emissions test on your terms.

    The menu also alerts you of any pending DTCs and reads the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) status. By reading the MIL status the scanner gives insight into what might cause your "check engine" light to turn on in the near future. In this way, the scanner also provides some preventive measures to help you keep a close eye on your vehicle's systems.

    The scanner comes with CD software that contains 5,000 Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) and their descriptions.

    • A very useful tool, but it could be better
      I have used this scanner on several OBDII vehicles from various manufacturers, and it has been a valuable diagnostic tool. I was able to pinpoint some emissions and drivability problems on several cars. The included software is a definite troubleshooting resource, and operating interface is easy to understand. That being said, the only difficulty I had with the scanner is the absence of a backlight for the digital display. This makes the scanner hard to read in either low light or high-glare conditions. It is a bit annoying, but the other attributes more than make up for it. I am more than happy to use it when troubleshooting. ...more info
    • excellent diagnostic tool
      I am so happy with this Actron CP9145 Scanner! I used it to properly diagnose and repair my son-in-law's Ford Focus the first day I tried it. It was fast and easy!!!!!...more info
    • A great tool for all do it yourselvers
      This tool is great if you love to work on your own. It didn't find my problem because it was a timeing chain. But, my brother has already helped a friend to fix his car. He said it was a easy machine to use. It was also a great price. ...more info
      This is the greatest product ever. I bought it for my husband for christmas and has already paid for itself twice over. Had problems with two vehicles that had engine lights that kept coming on, as you know a garage will charge at least 75.00 just to hook you car up to their tester. well my husband plugged in the autoscanner and it instantly showed the code and we solved the problems in both vehicles for almost nothing and cleared the engine light code so they could be inspected in new york state. Would recommend this product to anyone who has some knowledge of automobiles, but even if you dont it saves you the cost of the diagnosis,easy to plug in to your car or truck and gives you a code thats easy to look up and see what the problem is. GREAT PRODUCT PAYS FOR ITSELF OVER AND OVER EASY TO USE...more info
    • CP9145 Review
      I purchased this product to read a 2004 Toyota Tacoma engine light that came on at 65000 miles. Worked great. CP9145 told me I had a p0136 code. O2 sensor was not working. I purchased the replacement part and fixed the error. I was nice not to be "blind" to the vehicle codes....more info
    • Best buy on a code scanner that i could find
      i had been wanting a scanner for awhile and checked them out at many stores and on the web all over the world, and this was the best buy that i could find. works great, is fully upgradeable for next generation can protocol, with all the accessories will work on obd1 as well as obd11 and can. the price is allmost $200 cheaper than at another well known automotive dealer. in my opinion, if you find a better deal--- it is stolen!!! well worth the price and can save you much more than the cost with 1 use. i am tickled with mine . ...more info
    • Great Tool
      I have spent hundreds of dollars for auto service over the last few years trying to keep our three cars running. Every time a check engine light comes on the repair bills have averaged $200-$300 per episode. The last trouble light turned out to be a loose gas cap and the dealer was kind enough to only charge me $80. With this scanner I was able to identify the faulty part and replace for less than $60 so it paid for itself with the first use.
      The scanner is easy to use and has very straight forward menus. The scanner also works on OBD I and II cars, but make sure you have the right cables. Amazon also has the lowest price for this model....more info

    • Actron CP9145
      The tool can also display active running conditions, like fuel trim. I am still learning all of the functions and tests it can perform, but a fantastic tool...more info
    • CP9145
      I bought this diagnostic tool to work on my 1996 pickup truck. The price on Amazon was the lowest I saw anywhere, and this product works great. The only caveat is that you will need to do some research once you get the code. The scanner will tell you very quickly and easily what the car computer says, but that does not tell you why, or always what the code means. All in all, this is a great investment for a beginning to intermediate backyard mechanic....more info
    • Great Tool!
      I bought this to find out what codes were coming up do to a check engine light. Worked very well and has been very useful since, if your into do it yourself car repair. The biggest benefit is reading the codes, clearing the codes and turning off the check engine light....more info
    • Works as advertised... built well
      The CP9145 functioned well from the first time I used it. The unit is very intuitive as far as setup and use. I was curious whether it was up to date as far as C.A.N. use. I opened the unit and saw that it was the latest hardware. It has already saved me more money than I paid for it! ...more info
