What is a Scan Tool?
A scan tool is a car diagnostic tool that can exhibit a wide range of features.
Scan tools typically include a code reader, the ability to view and sort live data, and some type of knowledge base. Professional scan tools include extensive knowledge bases, diagnostic procedures, and some have built-in scopes, multimeters, and other diagnostic tools.
The most important thing to remember, a Scan tool is only as good as the technician using it. That’s why we do extensive training regularly to keep up to date with the test technology.
What Can a Scan Tool Do?
Scan tools are designed to interface with a car’s “on board diagnostic” system in order to facilitate the diagnostic process.
In that way, they are a lot like car code readers. They can be plugged into an OBD-I or OBD-II socket, read and clear codes, and view data readouts from various sensors. However, scan tools go beyond that basic functionality.
Further more, a scan tool may be able to:
- Store and play back live data
- Graph data
- Read both generic and manufacturer-specific trouble codes
- Display pending codes
- Provide trouble code definitions
- Provide troubleshooting procedures or tips
Although the ability to read and clear codes is important, the additional functionality provided by a good scan tool can be extremely helpful in diagnosing a problem.
OBD-II vehicles, in particular, can provide an enormous amount of data from a variety of different sensors, which is why many scanners have the ability to store and play back live data.
