Snap-on Tools has just launched this MICROSCAN low-cost diagnostic tool for use in the workshop. The scan is being sold under Snap-on’s Blue Point brand and is designed to display a vehicle’s diagnostic codes on its screen immediately it is plugged in.
As well as identifying current faults, the tool identifies likely problems in the future, as well as routine codes for servicing and emissions monitoring. With a multi-function viewing format, the MICROSCAN is simple to use and cheap to buy. With the increasing complexity of modern vehicles, it might just be a must-have item for the well-equipped home workshop.
