OBD-2 DLC Health Checker

CAN-Network 120 Ohm termination resistor. All CAN Networks need two 120 Ohm termination resistors. Why? Because the network needs to voltage drop its signal against some resistance value. So, 120 Ohm was chosen for CAN networks. These 2 resistors are often found in the Dash module and the ECM. A common problem is loss of the termination resistor, due to a Dash or ECM issue. These 2 resistors can be located in any of the modules, so the OBD-2 Health Checker can insert such a resistor, found inside the tool itself, at the click on a button. And at the same time, you can watch the tool's graphing screen and determine if you have a CAN signal back on.

CAN voltage injection feature. Together with the 120 Ohm termination resistors, the CAN network also needs 5 volts. The network actually operates by splitting the 5 volt signal in half and toggling the voltage between 2.5V and 3.5V for CAN High and between 2.5V and 1.5V for CAN low. The Health Checker can inject the 5 volts if it's missing, which often comes from the ECM, but not always. Regardless of where the termination resistors and the 5 volts comes from, this tool will place these two into the network. If at that time the network comes alive, then it's just a matter of finding which module provides what and repairing or replacing the part, but NO MORE SWAPPING for NOTHING.

ALTERNATOR DIODE test that senses issues with the charge voltage and determines possible DIODE issues that don't come out on a regular alternator charge test. This test lasts only a few seconds and will uncover possible DIODE issues that are known to SPIKE and ECM/PCM and cause network issues.

LOADED Power and GROUND testing that definitely uncover many issues. The unit draws a nominal 2 Amps through Pins 4, 5 and 16 therefore stressing both DLC power and ground. Pin 5 is of special importance because it goes through the ECM/PCM and points to a computer ground problem.

MULTIPLEXED Oscilloscope Included thereby, there's no need to poke into the wires and oscilloscope setup time. The units is MULTIPLEXED to the DLC connector; so all you do is turn the knob and push to scope the Pin. Doesn't get any easier than that.

What are the features of the OBD-2 DLC Health Checker?

  • 12 Volt Cranking Analysis with test PASS/FAIL result and Cranking MIN. voltage recorded.
  • Stress-Test on POWER and GROUND (chassis and sensor).
  • 12 Volt Alternator ripple current.
  • CAN Network Voltage Test.
  • CAN Network Voltage injection.
  • 120 Ohm Termination Resistor Shunt.
  • Alternator DIODE test.

The best OBD-II scanners in 2021

Need to save money on car maintenance and repairs? Putting one of the best OBD-II scanners in your glove box or trunk may end up being crucial in those moments when your car's Check Engine light suddenly comes on, and you're on a lonely country road or just a week shy of getting the vehicle inspected.

The on-board diagnostics (OBD) scanner plugs into an access port near the driver's seat and taps into the car's computer systems. It can tell you whether your Check Engine light is caused by an easily replaceable gas cap or by a faulty catalytic converter that's going to cost $1,000 to fix.

OBD-II scanners, sometimes written as OBD2 scanners, or EOBD scanners as they're called in Europe, also let you see what's going on with your car's engine, transmission and other critical systems — information that normally only your mechanic has access to.

Whether you're taking your ride into the shop for a routine checkup or for a major repair, knowing this vital information will prevent you from being bamboozled into green-lighting unnecessary fixes. 

In fact, once you know everything that's going on with your wheels, you can end up doing a lot of the smaller stuff yourself. That makes the best OBD-II scanners — which range in price from $25 to $200 — pay for themselves.

We've tested more than a dozen OBD-II scanners and rated them based on features, size, warranty, setup, ease of use and — above all — value. The best OBD-II scanners can diagnose thousands of automotive problems. 

OBD-II/EOBD scanners work on almost all passenger vehicles sold in the United States since 1996, in Canada since 1998, in the European Union since 2004, and in Australia, Mexico and New Zealand since 2006. (This site helps you find your car's OBD-II port on North American cars, and this helps you find your OBD-II/EOBD port worldwide.)

Not all the best OBD-II scanners are created equal. There are two general types of devices.

  • Handheld OBD-II scanners come with their own screen and cable to plug into the car's OBD port.
  • Wireless OBD2II scanners plug into the port, but then connect via Bluetooth to a smartphone or tablet.

Whichever type of device you choose, there are several high-performance OBD-II scanners that cost less than $200, and a couple are less than $30. One of the best OBD-II scanners is no longer an unaffordable luxury, but something you need to have in your car. 

What are the best OBD-II scanners?

The best OBD-II scanner we used and tested is the Innova CarScan Inspector 5310. It has a color display, delivers a ton of useful data, shuts off the oil-change light and can run your car through a pre-inspection test. Unlike most scanners, it has both a handheld screen and the ability to connect to an app on your phone via Bluetooth.

The Innova provides code definitions to help you easily identify car problems and the Repair Solutions2 app helps you get verified fixes and will give you the exact parts you need, recall info and more.

The Topdon ArtiDiag500 is our second Editor's Choice. It has an unusual horizontal screen, has a full complement of functions and abilities, and is one of the few scanners that can connect to Wi-Fi.

The BlueDriver Pro Scan Tool is our top pick among Bluetooth-only scanners. It's a thick stubby plug that you can leave connected to your OBD-II port, but the app is elegant and well designed.

If you have a GM, Ford, Chrysler or Toyota car from the '80s or early '90s in your driveway, Bosch's OBD 1300 might be a godsend. It comes with specialized cables to connect to those pre-1996 "OBD-I" models.

Ancel's BD310 is another great OBD-II scanner. It does double duty by providing a small but efficient cabled handheld scanner for nosing around under the hood, and it can also wirelessly receive OBD data to serve as an auxiliary gauge inside the cabin to display key engine parameters. It's quite affordable.

See all of our picks for the best OBD-II scanners below.

2. Topdon ArtiDiag500

The best sub-$200 OBD-II scanner on the market

Specifications

Display/size: Color touchscreen/5-inch

Bluetooth/handheld: No/Yes

I/M Readiness test: Yes

Displays live data: Yes

Number of keys: 4

Warranty: 2 years

Size: 9.1 x 4.9 x 1.4 inches

Weight: 1.6 pounds

Reasons to buy

+Excellent array of diagnostic tests+Wi-Fi connectivity+Rugged design with soft edges

Reasons to avoid

-Heavy and cumbersome-Short cables

The Topdon ArtiDiag500 straddles the line between amateur and professional users with a large color touchscreen, Wi-Fi and an automotive health report. 

It looks like a rugged portable gaming console, feels like a brick and has a 47-inch cable that won't quite reach the engine bay (and won't fit into the carrying case when attached to the unit). 

Despite that, the Topdon ArtiDiag500 is one of the most capable consumer-grade OBD-II scanners we've seen. It can monitor the brakes, airbags and battery, run an I/M pre-inspection test and also display and graph live car data. The Android-based unit has its own rechargeable battery and can update its own software, two things you don't often see on handheld scanners.

It may be big and heavy, but the Topdon ArtiDiag500 might be the best $170 a car owner can spend on an OBD-II diagnostic scanner.

Reasons to avoid

-Large transmitter-Specialty monitors don't work with all vehicles

The BlueDriver Pro Scan Tool is one of the most thorough Bluetooth-based automotive scanners, combining access to both basic and manufacturer-specific faulty codes and providing advice on how to fix problems.

The physical device is rather large, but that makes it easy to plug it into or yank out of an OBD-II port. An LED on the device lets you know whether it's in operation or in fault mode.

The BlueDriver mobile app is user-friendly and well laid-out, displaying data in automotive-style gauges and letting you export data to a spreadsheet. There's an I/M readiness test called a Smog Check, diagnostic tests for anti-lock brakes and engine timing, and Mode 6 in-depth diagnostic testing, although the amount of data collection may depend on your car's model and year.

4. Bosch OBD 1300

The diagnostic scanner to get for older cars

Specifications

Display/size: Color/3.5 inches

Bluetooth/handheld: No/Yes

I/M Readiness test: Yes

Displays live data: Yes

Number of keys: 8

Warranty: 1 year

Size: 6.8 x 2.6 x 1.0 inches

Weight: 10.5 ounces (1.4 pounds with 84-inch cable)

Reasons to buy

+Comes with cables for pre-1996 vehicles+Includes repair suggestions+Can reset oil-change light

Reasons to avoid

-Can get heavy despite small size-No manual or quick-start guide

The Bosch OBD 1300 diagnostic scanner stands out by including cables to connect with pre-1996 Chrysler, Ford, GM and Toyota cars. It can get heavy once the 6-foot extension cable is attached, but the OBD 1300's small size hides its powerful range of abilities.

Unlike many handheld diagnostic scanners, the Bosch OBD 1300 doesn't get power from your car's OBD-II port. Instead, it uses AA batteries or your car's cigarette lighter to power its large color screen, which shows graphing data clearly. 

The scanner's database holds details on 26 million repair suggestions. It can check the anti-lock brakes and air bags on most cars released from 1996 to 2013, monitor the charging system and battery and run a pre-inspection emissions test. You'll need to get the instruction manual from Bosch's website.

With a list price of nearly $200, the Bosch OBD 1300 may seem expensive until you see how many cars it can work with. It's the diagnostic scanner to get if you have an '80s or early-'90s car.

5. Foxwell NT614 Elite

Like having a Nintendo Switch to diagnose your car

Specifications

Display/size: Color/4.3 inches

Bluetooth/handheld: No/Yes

I/M Readiness test: Yes

Displays live data: Yes

Number of keys: 7

Warranty: 1 year

Size: 7.8 x 3.8 x 1.2 inches

Weight: 1.1 pounds

Reasons to buy

+Nearly complete array of diagnostic tests+Rugged design with soft edges+Includes hard case and SD card

Reasons to avoid

-Won't run on battery power-No touchscreen

Foxwell's NT614 Elite diagnostic scanner squeezes a large color screen into a small, rugged horizontal case. It's powerful and can probe many car problems, but we wish it had a touchscreen and could run on battery power.

Like the similar-looking but bulkier Topdon ArtiDiag500, the Foxwell NT614 is aimed at professional mechanics as well as car owners. It can graph data, cancel the oil-change light, and monitor the charging system, air bags, brakes and transmission. 

Two unique features stand out. Like a gaming keyboard, the Topdon ArtiDiag500 has programmable keys that can be set up to do different things with different makes of cars. It also has a microSD card slot for data storage. It may be the OBD-II scanner to have if you do a lot of work on cars from different manufacturers.

6. ThinkCar ThinkDiag TKD01

Dependable, but you've got to pay an annual subscription fee

Specifications

Display/size: None

Bluetooth/handheld: Yes/No

I/M Readiness test: Yes

Displays live data: Yes

Number of keys: None

Warranty: 1 year

Size: 3.1 x 2.0 x 1.1 inches

Weight: 2.7 ounces

Reasons to buy

+Reads enhanced codes+Lots of optional abilities available+Comes with hard case

Reasons to avoid

-App subscription costs $40 after first year-Heavy and hard to install

The ThinkCar ThinkDiag TKD01 is among the largest Bluetooth-based OBD-II automotive diagnostic scanners. It can show you extended fault codes or turn off the oil-change light, but be wary of the annual app-subscription plan.

At more than three inches across, the ThinkDiag is so big it won't fit into some OBD-II ports. You may need an extension cable to connect to your car's systems. On the upside, the rugged oval-shaped unit is practically indestructible.

The ThinkDiag app offers profiles for more than 100 automakers, letting you dig deep into manufacturer-specific codes. You get one profile for free for the first year, but after that each profile is $40 per year (and even more for Teslas). If you have multiple cars of different makes, you'll pay for each profile.

The app can turn off the oil-change light, check tire pressure, airbags and brakes, and predict which systems will go south soon. However, it doesn't tell you which replacement parts or repairs might be needed.

7. Innova CarScan Pro 5210

Puts more car data at your fingertips

Specifications

Display/size: Color/2.8 inches

Bluetooth/handheld: Yes/Yes

I/M Readiness test: Yes

Displays live data: Yes

Number of keys: 9

Warranty: 1 year

Size: 6.7 x 3.4 x 1.1 inches

Weight: 7.7 ounces

Reasons to buy

+Big screen+Lots of data+Repair explanations

Reasons to avoid

-Relatively pricey-Short cable

The Innova’s CarScan Pro 5210’s can tell you more about your car than many of its competitors, which is why it deserves to be among the best OBD-II scanners. 

The Pro 5210 scanner’s 2.8-inch color screen is bright and its narrow and long aspect ratio means it can squeeze in lots of automotive details, from fault codes to live data to a pre-inspection check. Its LED lights glow red for a permanent fault, yellow for an intermittent fault and green for no problems.

The CarScan Pro 5210 goes beyond displaying the expected fault codes with a Bluetooth connection to a phone or tablet and Innova’s Repair Solutions2 free app. The software explains the repairs and even the parts needed to fix the car. 

With a 9-key interface, the Pro 5210 is one of the easiest of the best OBD-II scanners to navigate. It found the fault I introduced to my 2014 Audi AllRoad and turned off the car's check engine light. 

On the downside, the CarScan Pro 5210 has a 27-inch cable, which is short, and its overall dimensions feel bulky, particularly compared to the smaller and lighter EDIAG YA-201. While pricey, the Innova CarScan Pro 5210 Pro 5210 is a must-have for those who want to know what’s wrong with their cars.

8. Ancel BD310

The best OBD-II that does double duty

Specifications

Display/size: Color/2 inches

Bluetooth/handheld: Yes/yes

I/M Readiness test: Yes

Displays live data: Yes

Number of keys: 4

Warranty: 3 years

Size: 5.1 x 2.4 x 0.6 inches

Weight: 5.4 ounces

Reasons to buy

+Small and light device+Designed as scanner and supplemental wireless car display+Can work as handheld scanner or with a phone

Reasons to avoid

-Minimalist interface-Small screen

Ancel's BD310 is just as good as a handheld scanner with a screen as it is when connected to a phone or tablet via Bluetooth. It can also augment the car's cockpit with a supplemental display of key engine parameters. Think of it as freedom-of-scanning choice.

Small and lightweight, the BD310 can live in your car's glove box. Its icon-based, 2.0-inch color display is a little skimpy but easy to figure out, regardless of whether you want an I/M inspection-readiness test or performance details, like coolant temperature, engine timing and engine speed. They can be shown as numbers or graphs.

It has a 56-inch cable that makes it just as good for hanging over the hood looking for an engine problem as monitoring the engine while driving. On the other hand, the BD310's rudimentary four-key interface can make navigation awkward. There's also a mode button on the side for selecting Bluetooth and cable operation.

9. Autel AutoLink AL539

A smart OBD2 scanner pick for diagnosing electrical problems

Specifications

Display/size: Color/2.8 inches

Bluetooth/handheld: Yes/no

I/M Readiness test: Yes

Displays live data: Yes

Number of keys: 8

Warranty: 1 year

Size: 6.7 x 3.6 x 1.4 inches

Weight: 10.6 ounces

Reasons to buy

+Includes electrical multimeter+Battery tests+Includes stand

Reasons to avoid

-Can't use OBD scanner and electrical meter at once-Need to recharge battery

Unlike most OBD-II scanners, Autel's AutoLink AL539 can check electrical connections with a built-in multimeter to uncover electrical shorts or burned-out cables. The device's lithium-ion battery powers it for checking fuses, the alternator's voltage or the gas gauge.  Just note that the multimeter doesn't work when the AL539 is connected as an OBD scanner.

The AL539 not only shows live data, like engine speed, coolant temperature and other items but also can run a comprehensive pre-inspection readiness test. It shows results as three lights for faults: red (permanent fault), yellow (temporary fault) or green (no faults).

Despite its soft rubber bumpers, the AL539 is fairly compact and light at 6.7 x 3.6 x 1.4 inches and 10.6 ounces. It has a unique pull-out leg so the device can stand on its own, as well as a generous 58-inch cable. Its bright, 2.8-inch color display has icons for major functions and an easy-to-follow, eight-key interface.

10. SeekOne SK860

Get a large color screen and a lifetime warranty

Specifications

Display/size: Color/2.8 inches

Bluetooth/handheld: No/yes

I/M Readiness test: Yes

Displays live data: Yes

Number of keys: 8

Warranty: Lifetime

Size: 7.8 x 3.8 x 1.2 inches

Weight: 11.2 ounces

Reasons to buy

+Lifetime warranty+Rugged design+Icon-based navigation

Reasons to avoid

-Big and heavy-Few features you'll find on pricier scanners

Its large color screen, range of tasks, lifetime warranty and ease of use make the SeekOne SK860 a winner. 

The price for this is a handheld scanner that can feel bulky and heavy. Its soft rubber bumpers and rugged design mean you don't have to baby the SK860, and it comes with a 58-inch cord and bright, 2.8-inch color display. 

Its eight-button navigation scheme and icon-based interface are easier to use than budget scanners. The SK850 has a one-button I/M pre-inspection readiness check along with a green (no-fault codes), yellow (intermittent problems) and red (permanent-problem codes) LED scheme. 

The SK860 does much more than typical handheld scanners and comes with a padded case, but its lifetime warranty makes it stand out from the crowd.

11. ThinkOBD 100

Small but powerful, the ThinkOBD 100 is a bargain

Specifications

Display/size: Color/1.8 inches

Bluetooth/handheld: No/Yes

I/M Readiness test: Yes

Displays live data: Yes

Number of keys: 4

Warranty: 1 year

Size: 4.7 x 2.6 x 0.8 inches

Weight: 5.6 ounces

Reasons to buy

+Small and light +Inexpensive+Shows live Data

Reasons to avoid

-Small screen-4-key interface

Small and inexpensive, the 5.6-ounce ThinkOBD 100 scanner is perfect for a quickie diagnosis, roadside repairs and running a pre-inspection test. However, it lacks the depth to explain deeper automotive problems.

The ThinkOBD 100 can disappear in a glove box and includes a USB cable for updating its firmware. On the downside, the scanner’s 1.8-inch screen is an inch smaller than many competitors and feels cramped. 

Its four-quadrant home screen is simple with entries for Diagnose, Lookup, Setup and Help, but the four yellow circles above do nothing. That leaves the rudimentary four-button keypad as the only way to interact with the scanner.  

In addition to displaying current fault codes, the ThinkOBD 100 shows live car data, like spark advance and engine speed, but it spreads the data over 38 pages. After I introduced a fault in my 2014 Audi AllRoad, this OBD-II scanner diagnosed the problem and I was able to turn off the Check Engine light. Unfortunately, I had to manually type the code into the Lookup section to find its meaning. 

The device offered no explanation or repair options, making it second best to more advanced (and expensive) handheld scanners, like the Innova CarScan Pro 5210.

12. Jethax OBD-II Scanner

Designing the OBD2 DLC Health Checker

Best OBD2 Scanners For 2021

“OBD” stands for “On Board automotive Diagnostics,” and OBD-II (oft abbreviated to OBD2) is the second generation of this technology. A vehicle’s computers monitor the data from multiple components, keep track of what they’re doing and if something’s wrong. When a fault does occur, it’s stored in the computer as a diagnostic trouble code, and sometimes triggers the check engine light on your dashboard. Every gasoline-powered vehicle built since 1996 and every diesel since 2008 is equipped with an OBD2 port to get access to that information. The port’s design is standard across different makes, it’s always located within 3-feet of the driver and can be accessed without tools.

 In the early days, only dealerships and independent mechanics had scanners that could read the data and the fault codes. Today, do-it-yourselfers have a large variety of OBD2 scanners they can keep in their home garages, or even in their vehicles. A good scanner tells what’s wrong when the check engine light comes on and allows users to clear the code, turning off the warning light. 

The trouble codes also provide information useful for carrying out any repairs that might be necessary. If the underlying problem isn’t fixed the check engine light will come on again. Fuller-featured models can include Bluetooth connections to smartphones and tablets, a wider array of functions, databases of repair and parts information specific to the vehicle, the issues detected and more. The good news is that most of these more functional scanners are still reasonably priced, but there are some heavy hitters. Our list of the best OBD2 Scanners includes units that range from $60 to $480.
