Taking your car in for a checkup or repair can be expensive, not to mention time consuming. It’s often easier to diagnose and fix a problem at home with a reliable diagnostic tool. But which one should you choose? We’ve put together a list of the best Ancel diagnostic tools to help you get the job done.
Which scanner is best for car?Ancel scanner
The classic Ancel scanner diagnostic tool is the AD310, which is easy to use with a large screen and retrieves error codes quickly. It’s a good option for beginners and DIYers who want a simple car code reader that works as advertised.
Another popular choice is the FX6000, which has more advanced features and supports a wider range of vehicle models than the AD310. It can connect to a computer for firmware and software updates and offers an online database with troubleshooting suggestions that have worked for other technicians. It also includes 11 OBD2 adapters for different vehicle types, so it should work with most cars.
If you need a professional-grade scanner, the Ancel X line is the way to go. The ANCEL X6 and X7 are bidirectional scan tools that can read and clear code errors, show error definitions on the LCD display, turn off Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL), display live data streams, perform an O2 sensor test and Enhanced Evaporative Control System test, and retrieve engine information.
Lastly, the ANCEL BM700 is designed to diagnose 4 major systems in BMW Group vehicles(BMW, MINI, and Rolls-Royce), including the engine, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), transmission, Steering Angle Sensor(SAS), and Supplemental Restraint System(SRS). It can also check battery voltage, display engine oil levels, and perform TPMS reset functions.
