Review of Topdon Elite Car Diagnostic Tool ABS & SRS Fault Reader

A review of the Topdon Elite cat diagnostic tool which has ABS and SRS airbag code fault functionality.


Are you after an SRS Airbag or ABS code reader as well as an engine fault reader, this little device does all of that and more. Straight out of the box it seems to be the best diagnostic tool we have reviewed.

If you have an error, you can read your code and also a description of what this error is, it won’t just give you a code number which you have to look elsewhere for, this is a really thorough diagnostic tool that will really show you whats going on.

We’ll get straight to it, this tool does it and more, if you have airbag or abs problems and they’re showing on your dash, you can check what is up with each error and find out in more detail what it is and then either fix it yourself or get it fixed at your local garage. Once you have checked what it is, you can easily remove it.

If you want to check emission reports or any engine information you can do this with graphical information as well. It has a better viewing information compared to the others which just show error codes and their definition.
