The Creader 3001 is an entry-level personal car maintenance tool. It features a color display, meets OBDII/EOBD protocols, and has all the features that you would expect for a basic OBD2 scanner, as well as several other more advanced functions. It will allow you to diagnose problems with your car that have triggered the
check engine light, without leaving your home.
The Creader 3001 lets you: scan codes, clear codes, and monitor vehicle operation. It reads both the generic diagnostic codes used by all OBD2 compliant vehicles and some codes that are manufacturer specific. The Creader 3001 can also help you determine if your vehicle is ready for emissions testing and if it will pass the test based on information stored by your vehicle’s onboard computer.

To use the scanner
Connect the Creader 3001 cable to the OBD2 port on your vehicle. This connector is usually under the dashboard on the driver’s side and might be behind an access panel. The following photograph shows a typical OBD2 connector.
Turn on the vehicle. The Creader 3001 receives power as soon it is physically connected to the OBD2 port on your vehicle, but cannot establish communication until the vehicle is turned on. You can read codes with the key in the run position (engine off), but the car must be running to monitor vehicle operation.
