There’s nothing like a bilingual ODB II scanner to get your car or truck moving in the morning. I first saw an AutoXray product when it was featured on Shadetree Mechanic in the ’90s — it was a fairly priced scanner that would work well for any consumer.  Now AutoXray offers upper-end models like the TechScan 7000.

The TechScan 7000 works with ODB I and ODB II systems, in English and Spanish.  It’ll pull enhanced scan codes and their definitions, and it features ABS scanning, live scanning of sensors, and enhanced ODB II for certain makes and models.  The scanner will also retrieve vehicle information using the VIN and calibration IDs.

You can monitor live data on the 128 x 128-pixel screen.  You can also record and playback, and an SD slot allows for additional data storage.  It’ll print directly to a USB printer, and all cables are color-coded for ease of use.

You can get the AutoXray TechScan 7000, with an ODB II cable, ODB I cables for GM, Ford, and Chrysler, a USB cable, power adapters, manual, and case for about $475. Just running a couple of successful scans will pay for this thing.

    Anyone know if this (or a competitor) will allow you to cycle and bleed the ABS unit?

    Nice scan tool… thanks for the info! Please note that the correct TLA is OBD (as in ‘On Board Diagnostic’) I and II, rather than ODB.

    It should work just fine on Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s ride too. 😉

    The “AXRAX7000 DLT” also has some bi-directional controls which could help when doing an EVAP (evaporative) system check by closing the vent solenoid, prior to smoke testing. The ability to be able to read Live Sensor Data is also a plus!
