I don’t need super bidirectional functions on new Jags and Teslas , all I’m looking for is a tool under $800 that has service control functions for things like EVAP valves and sensors, fuel injector control, etc , for mid 2000 us cars ,very hard to find specific information on compatibility , looking at Autel, Launch , etc

Thanks,
R

I use the ThinkCar pro. It is a Launch clone of sorts with better graphing. I purchased to for just over $800

I use the Thinktool Pros which you can get occasionally on sale for a little over $800

Will the Think tool pros work for things like bleeding the abs and setting the cam crank correlation on the 96 to 2000 vintage gm trucks?

I know the Thinktool Pros will adjust the cam/crank correlation on those years of GM trucks because I own two 98 Chevy trucks and have used it to check and adjust this setting. I'm not sure about bleeding the ABS system as I have never needed to do that but I'm sure it can do it. This scan tool has 34-35 maintenance functions depending on how old the scanner is.

I can't speak for the Thinktool Pros. But I know at least some of their software is licensed from Launch. :huh: My Launch Pro Mini has been surprisingly good with older GM vehicles. It's saved by bacon more than once with functional tests it could do that no other aftermarket tool could.
