Being able to diagnose and repair cars on your own is a huge advantage, especially in times of rising costs. Do-it-yourselfers can save time and money on repairs, not to mention gaining the satisfaction that comes from increased self-reliance.

However, unlike when a simple selection of hand tools would do the job, today’s vehicles require more sophisticated electronic tools to properly diagnose and service. A car with a warning light glowing in the instrument panel can be an unpleasant and baffling problem for those without access to a code reader. TOPDON’s series of ArtiLink DIY code readers will help you solve those problems and make a handy addition to any professional technician’s toolbox.

Whether you need to identify basic car problems, reset a check engine light, clear codes, check emission efficiency, or simply be better informed before taking your car to the shop, there’s an ArtiLink code reader that’s right for you. The ArtiLink tools keep you current with free lifetime software updates and multi-language support.

Designed for most 1996 and newer vehicles, the ArtiLink400 works with all 10 OBD2 modes. It allows you to quickly read and clear fault codes and read vehicle information (VIN, CID and CVN). The 2.4-inch TFT color screen is easy to read both indoors and outdoors. For less than $50, the AL400 packs a lot of value into a scan tool.

The ArtiLink500 adds capability with a larger 2.8-inch color screen and the ability to print via PC. “Honestly, the best scanner for the price!” ArtiLink500 buyer Mike reported in his Amazon review. “I found this scanner very easy to use and it works amazing. Scans and clears codes. Very user friendly. 100 percent would recommend to anyone looking for a low cost and highly effective OBD scan tool!”

The ArtiLink500B is a genuine 2-in-1 tool, with its code-reading abilities combined with battery test, charging test, and cranking test functions.

For a code reader that satisfies the needs of both DIYers and professional technicians, there’s the ArtiLink600. Featuring a larger 3.5-inch TFT screen, the AL600 works with 40+ car brands. It can perform ABS and SRS Active Tests, along with three maintenance services (Oil Reset, SAS Reset, and BMS Reset). With an MSRP of $99, it packs a lot of capability into an easy-to-use package.

“I have owned a few OBD readers, from IOS apps to stand alone readers, and this one ranks really well,” said Nicolas A. in his Amazon review of the AL600. “I love the size of the unit and the screen. It is not overly complicated and it’s easy to get the hang of. This reader does ABS and other things which is a great feature on a unit this size and price. For the price I give this an A+, and for 90% of the people out there, this works perfect.”

Deciphering and clearing Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) has never been easier thanks to affordable and user-friendly readers like TOPDON’s series of ArtiLink tools.
