Launch’s CReader Pro, No. CRP129, features OEM enhanced functionality one might expect from a bigger scan tool. Functions include electronic parking brake release, steering angle reset and service reminder reset – not to mention the ability to display and graph live PID data for A/T, SRS and ABS, along with complete generic OBDII. The tool includes quick boot up, manufacturer-specific code definitions, DTC-specific troubleshooter tips, free Internet updates, and the ability to print via PC.

Features and benefits

The CReader Pro CRP129 will read and clear DTCs for engine, A/T, SRS and ABS. Additionally, it will also display and graph live PID data for those systems, along with complete OBDII generic functionality. The ability to reset service maintenance lights – both automatically and manually – along with steering angle resets and electronic parking brake release also lend this tool to many applications for today’s technician.

Key selling points

According to Launch Tech, no other product in the CReader Pro price point offers EPB release, steering angle reset and service reminder resets. This code scanner also offers the full ability to display and graph live PID data for A/T, SRS and ABS, along with complete generic OBDII.

At a price point of under $500, it is designed for users that do not need a full scan tool, such as body, lube and tune-up shops.

Applications

This tool will help the technician diagnose issues with engine, transmission, SRS and ABS. It will reset DTCs within these systems. Code definitions and most likely causes for the codes will also be available from within the tool itself.

Product targets a need

The idea was born from the need for an ultra-fast code scanner that has deep sub-system coverage, along with full PID data capturing and graphing capabilities, in a price point that is a fraction of a professional scan tool.

Specs

This product is made in China and constructed of plastic, silicon and rubber. The unit weighs 1 lb.

Storage and display

The item ships in its own packaging and in multiples of 36 per carton. Inside a mobile truck, it is best shown with similar diagnostic scan tools and code readers or alongside tune-up parts and oil.

Suggested retail price

$499.95
