C110 scanners

Recommended Posts

So breaking out the laptop to read codes can be a faff and seen these C110 scanners that seem to do most of the basic diagnostics i need.

 

Not bothered re coding etc.

 

Question for those that have used them - are the fault codes given with an explanation say "crank position sensor" etc or just a code that one then looks up with a broad spectrum of possible faults?

 

ie how specific are they?

The last time I used mine to trace a misfire it gave a code plus the explanation that there was a problem to the wiring at injector 3. I found a worn wire in the injector loom a where it joined injector 3 and fixed the problem.  I can't remember any other faults I have traced but the reader certainly does not give just a simple fault code which you then have to look up. For most simple fault reading the C110 is much less hastle than having to dig out the old laptop and run INPA, DIS or ISTA.

They really are good little scanners. Mine lives in the glove compartment. My Delphi, Ancel FX4000 , MaxiScan and the laptop with DIS, INPA and ISTA live in the garage!
