Thinkcar UK introduces CV Thinktool products

Thinkcar UK, a brand of Impact Diagnostics, has introduced a couple of diagnostic tools designed to help the more budget conscious CV and LCV workshops.

The Thinktool reader HD is an entry level HGV diagnostic tool covering full systems on 31 commercial manufacturers including DAF, Scania, Volvo, Mercedes, MAN, Iveco, Isuzu and Cummins.

It claims to be far more than just a basic code reader and allows advanced functions such as: DPF regeneration, injector coding, reset service (MIL), maintenance confirmation, injection quantity adjustment, particulate filter replacement reset, pressure differential sensor reset, pressure limiting valve reset, bleeding the AdBlue circuit, VGT electronic actuator installation and calibration, trip reset, parked SCR efficiency test and DPF ash accumulator reset.

There is also an optional software pack to add a further 42 manufacturers. The tool is a compact size and perfect for a mobile service van or back-up tool to a large workshop. Pricewise, it claims to cost much less than major European brands for 12 months’ updates, but to also offer relatively inexpensive optional updates when required.


The Thinktool Master CV is the Reader HD’s bigger brother. With a 10’’ rugged tablet and full cable set it is a more complete tool, but is said to still offer great value for money with two years’ updates included. Alongside its HGV and off-highway coverage, the Master CV is said to offer excellent coverage of light commercials. One recent claim, for example, is to have had great success in resetting AdBlue non-start lockouts on Transits and Sprinters when other better-known brands may have struggled.
