OBDLink SX is the perfect entry level scan tool designed for the do-it-yourself mechanic. Despite its modest price tag, it is packed with advanced features normally found in more expensive scan tools. Includes the latest OBDWiz diagnostic software and USB interface.



OBDLink SX will quickly and accurately diagnose engine problems and access performance parameters for all OBD-II compliant vehicles. Use the latest version of OBDwiz software on any Windows laptop, netbook, or PC and you have a sophisticated, easy-to-use diagnostic system — for a small fraction of the cost of comparable standalone units! OBDLink SX provides the same core functionality as the original OBDLink in a straightforward, plug-and-play package.
The latest version of the free, feature-packed OBDwiz diagnostic software included with the scan tool allows you to:

•Turn off the check engine light, and erase stored diagnostic information.
•Read and erase stored, pending, and permanent trouble codes (both generic and manufacturer-specific).
•Access freeze frame information.
•Display, graph, and log 90+ real-time parameters
•Create custom digital dashboards
•Measure and display fuel economy
•And much more!

Premium diagnostic software, such as ScanXL and ScanMaster, offers a myriad of additional features including Dynometer, multi-language support, and data manipulation tools . ScanXL’s Enhanced Diagnostics Add-ons offer support for thousands of enhanced manufacturer-specific parameters, as well as ABS and other proprietary systems.
