ANCEL FX3000 4 System

Also, you can view live data stream, easily and fast find out the cause of engine system error before sending your vehicle to a repair shop, save time and money.
  • Transmission System: If the automatic transmission warning light is on, FX3000 code reader will access and communicate with the transmission to tell you the running status of the sensors, read the error, turn off the warning light and read the live data stream, so you’ll know what is wrong exactly with the transmission system.
  • Anti-lock Brake System(ABS): FX3000 has the ability to retrieve ABS fault codes and tell you what the problem is through a visual inspection of all brake components, and then clear the codes. It also allows you to monitor and diagnose the operating conditions of the ABS to ensure that the repairs are effective and complete.
  • Supplemental Restraint System(SRS): It’s a non-negligible signal that the SRS light is on, which means the safety system isn’t working at 100% and maybe the airbag is disabled. This scanner can check the errors and clear the codes, view real-time live data to monitor the SRS run status, and turn off the warning light.(CAN NOT reset the SRS module).
