Uh-Oh! The Check-Engine Light Is On

(NAPSI)-Steering motorists toward peace of mind when their check-engine light turns on is a simple tool that gives them the ability to quickly determine the cause of the warning.

Until recently, professional auto technicians with sophisticated scanning tools were needed to identify problems. The PocketScanĀ® by Actron is about the size of a TV remote and enables the novice or light-to-moderate DIY mechanic to read a trouble code from the on-board computer of all 1996 and newer cars and light trucks.

Motorists can simply plug PocketScan's cable into the automotive diagnostic port, usually located under the steering column, and the code reader quickly displays the trouble code on an easy-to-read LCD screen. Once repairs are made, the device allows the user to clear trouble codes and turn off the light.

Check-engine light warnings indicate problems that may cause a vehicle to not operate properly- from minor emission issues that emit pollutants or reduce gas mileage to significant engine problems. PocketScan enables consumers to read trouble codes and get instant information from a convenient, palm-sized package.
