March 9, 2022

The single tool can be used to better diagnose, troubleshoot and repair all types of vehicles.

A Wi-Fi-enabled, super-advanced diagnostic scan tool with an upgraded all-in-one Smartlink VCI, the X-431 Throttle III is designed for versatility, efficiency and usability. In line with its slogan, ONE IS ENOUGH, this single tool can be used to better diagnose, troubleshoot and repair all types of vehicles, from cars and hybrids to light- and heavy-duty trucks.

Designed to save time and aid in diagnostics and repairs the X-431 Throttle III comes packed with features for the automotive aftermarket. The scanner is IP65-rated water- and dust-resistant, with a dual-band Wi-Fi architecture providing a more reliable tool-to-VCI connection. It is based on the Android 9.0 platform and is equipped with an octa-core 2.0GHz processor, 8GB of memory and 256GB of storage. The scan tool’s 13.3-inch full-fitting sunlight-readable Gorilla Glass screen boasts a vibrant 1080p resolution, and charges from 0 to 100 percent in just 2.6 hours thanks to quick charge technology.

Featuring a streamlined software platform that includes automotive diagnostics, optional heavy-duty diagnostics and access to the FCA Secure Gateway (SGW) module, just a single tool is suitable for most repair shops that offer services related to truck diagnostics, remote diagnostics, OE-level vehicle diagnosis, and more. In addition, the X-431 Throttle III includes a four-channel Oscilloscope that was previously sold as an add-on module for better value and function. Customers can also choose to extend multiple functions with additional add-on modules, such as ADAS calibration, TPMS, video scope, sensor box, IMMO functions, Wi-Fi printing, battery tests, and more.

The X-431 Throttle III includes mainstay functions such as VINSCAN, remote tech-to-tech consulting and collaboration diagnosis, and an extensive repair library with intelligent functionality and Code Assist supported by Identifix. As a result, the scan tool is capable of performing the most standard shop processes such as quick scan health reports, detailed diagnostic troubleshooting, maintenance analysis, and full-on high-level bi-directional diagnostics.
