Product Overview

The ANCEL FX6000 is a scanner and fully functional automotive code reader. If you need an scanner to read and diagnose automotive codes, and for advanced ECU coding and programming, the ANCEL FX6000 might be a good option for you. With this scanner, you will get 2 years of free online upgrades, which is more than can be said for most other scanners.

The fact of the matter is that while this ANCEL FX6000 scanner is quite expensive, more so than most other standard models, it also has a lot of features and functions that make this model well worth the investment. It might not be the easiest to use car scanner in the world, but once you get the hang of it, it certainly gets the job done.

Who Is This Product For?

If you are a vehicle technician or just like to fix problems with your car by yourself, the ANCEL FX6000 could be a good investment for you. If you need to reprogram certain electronic functions in your vehicle, or if you need to read, reset, and fix error codes, this scanner can get it done.

As long as you speak one of the nine languages which this model functions in, and have one of the many vehicles which it covers, it’s a scanner that could be right for you. As long as the car is Asian, European, or North American, and built between 1992 and 2017, the ANCEL FX6000 will most likely work for you.

What’s Included

When you buy the ANCEL FX6000, you get the console itself, which is a fairly large handheld display and control panel, one with a big high definition TFT display that is easy to read. You also get the diagnostics cable, the OBDII connecter, a Citroen-16C connecter, a USB cable, and a carrying case, plus a user’s manual too. What is nice is that it comes with a USB cable so if necessary, you can transfer the data over to your computer and examine it there.

Overview of Features

The ANCEL FX6000 scanner has a whole lot of features that are worth talking about. For one, this tool can be used to diagnose your engine system in many ways. It displays live vehicle sensor data in either text or graph format. It also performs O2 sensor tests, component tests, and can read and clear all kinds of codes associated with the engine. On that same note, the ANCEL FX6000 can also be used to reset the oil light and service light too.

Furthermore, the ANCEL FX6000 can also read and clear many other codes including ABS, TPMS, DPF, EPB, SAS, and several others. This scanner can also be used to read and reset codes concerning the SRS airbag system. Furthermore, the ANCEL FX6000 also works for all kinds of error codes and diagnostics in regards to the transmission system of your vehicle.

Of course, by far one of the best features here is that the ANCEL FX6000 features highly advanced ECU coding and programming; this is not something that can be said for very many aftermarket automotive diagnostics tools.

There are so many other things that the ANCEL FX6000 can do, including reading error codes associated with the battery system, the AC, the body system, the chassis, central locks, car radio systems, the headlamps, and so much more.

Whatever the case may be, the ANCEL FX6000 can read all kinds of error codes and allows you to reprogram a large variety of functions. It’s a nifty little tool that doesn’t need batteries, can be plugged right into your vehicle, and also allows you to transfer the data over to your computer.

  1. I bought an ancel fx6000 and first used it on a 09 ford ranger. About 2-3 months i updated it and then it wouldn’t work in the 09 ford ranger at all. I contacted the ancel direct store about the problem expained the problem,
    they wanted pictures, do i sent pictures in jpeg format with no complaints. Waited a month or more then contacted them about the issue and was told to check updated so i refered to the problem that i had been asking about and then was told to ask Aliexperess for help.
    I did finally get an update about 2 months later and it did work. After that i used it on a 2011 chevy equinox and let it do an auto select and it read the equinox as a camaro light duty truck. I entered the info manually and it did reat that as an equinox but couldn’t get any live data from any of the modules. I contacted support again and sent pics in jpeg format to wich they said that they couldn’t enlarge the pics and wanted a video sent. I took video and couldn’t send it by email so put it on google drive and sent email link to them. They asked what email i sent it by so i replied and they replied that they couldn’t get it because they didn’t have an account with goole.
    I also found that it wouldn’t connect with a 03 ford crown victoria.
    So i find that the advertiseing for the fx 6000 is miss leading. It seems to bee a hit or miss with regards to the north american cars. And the customer support is very poor, there is a language barrier plus the are not very helpful if they think that u are not satisfied with the product.
    For a pro mechanic using this tool it is very frustrating and a great hassle to try to get issues resolved. So for the money you pay for this scanner it’s nowhere near a good scanner and not worth the agrivation.

These people say they look after the software problems and updates for this scanner and they say they can’t open a email picture in jpg format and can’t open a mp4 file on google drive.

  3. It seems that USB cable it is not meant to be used for data transfer,but can be used only to connect to PC for updating,and in home/office you need to power up this diagnosing tool with a 12V/DC adaptor.
