Independent service shops and vehicle tuners require more information than what OBDII can provide to do their job effectively. Since the OBDII standard covers only emissions-related powertrain systems and sensors, there is more information you won't be able to see with a generic OBDII scan tool. With our enhanced interface options, you can get factory tool-like capabilities; allowing you to access hundreds of systems (ABS,airbags, instrument cluster, etc.), sensors, and system/component-level bi-directional controls so you can do your job faster and with a greater degree of accuracy.
ACI supports non-OBDII and European models. For example, due to their excessive vehicular weight trucks like the Ford Super Duty, Chevy Duramax, and Dodge are not required to be OBDII compliant. But with our enhanced interface options you can now access the diagnostics capabilities of these vehicles.
1. ACI Scan Tool is a professional PC diagnostics scan tool for all OBDII (OBD2) and EOBD IV+ compliant vehicles. ACI Scan Tool allows you to read the vehicle's diagnostic trouble codes, live vehicle sensors (including wide-band O2 sensors), actuate bi-directional controls, reset adaptations, and view inspection system test results to quickly determine what service the vehicle requires.
2. Professional Diagnostics
In the professional repair business getting as much coverage as you can is important to effectively and quickly service any vehicle. We offer enhanced coverage options for 43 car brands: Ford/Lincoln/Mercury, GM-family, Chrysler-family Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Mazda,Nissan/Infiniti, BMW/MINI, Land Rover, Honda(Acura),Subaru, Mitsubishi, Isuzu, Porsche,Mercedes, Hyundai/Kia, Jaguar, and Audi/VW.
3. Not Simple Code Reader
So you read your vehicle's trouble codes, now what? Reading the trouble codes from your vehicle is easy. But without live data and bi-directional controls, you may not have enough information to properly perform the repair. Don't waste your time or money with simple code readers or hand-held scanners. ACI OBD2 scan tool can not only read your codes, but it can also show you live data, actuate components, and run system tests. With complete coverage, you can get the job done right the first time and prevent dreaded "comeback".
4. NA Emissions and European MOT
You may have known that almost all states are using OBD2-based emission testing for all 1996 and newer passenger vehicles? Now with the 2010 legislation, even the 8500 -10000lb trucks are required to be OBD2 complaint. If you have a Check Engine or Service Engine Soon indicator illuminated, or a specific inspection system monitor test fails, your vehicle will fail its emissions test. With ACI OBD2 scan tool you can inspect your vehicle’s compliance before you wait in line and pay for the test.
5. Tuning Your Vehicle
Read live sensors such as wide-band O2 sensors, fuel adaptation, MAF, ignition timing advance, and lambda readings. If your vehicle supports wide-band O2 sensors, Scan Tool can show you real-time air/fuel mixtures. Finally, data log them all in TXT, CSV, and XML formats with 1ms sampling accuracy.
6. Performance Analyzer
Don't buy into claims of increased horsepower or added torque; you can verify whether that new, expensive part really works. Do your own dynamometer and acceleration testing at your own convenience and without having to rent expensive dynamometer time.
For our European customers, our enhanced interface options also support Audi/VW, BMW,Chrysler/Dodge, Ford, Jaguar, Mercedes, and Toyota/Lexus diesel engines and the European-specific models.
