The X-431 is a mobile, light and very portable unit which, when plugged into the electronic system of your car, can be used to run a general diagnostic check on the vehicle’s systems or it can be used to verify the operation of specific components as per your instruction. It is even possible to shut a specific cylinder down by using electronic input via the X431. If, and it should not be if, you have a non-negotiable approach towards doing it right the first time, then you cannot do without a vehicle diagnostic tool – having one is an imperative! The X431 offers among others: analysis of sensors and actuators and much more, all in the palm of your hand. The X431 comes with a 16 pin connector that incorporates a BMW 16, Can-Bus II, OBD II and Smart OBD plug amongst others. The X431 also offers a print-out facility.

 

 

At a price of R38 000 excluding VAT, you will receive a powerful diagnostic tool to be used on a wider range of motor vehicle than what any other diagnostic tool offers and best of all, if you own a previous generation X431, you will attract a substantial discount if you were to upgrade to the Master. If a business is about making money, then using the right product for the right application is the methodology to support it, and Launch should be your preferred supplier.
