What customers say about "Key Specs"
INNOVA 3160E ABS/SRS + CanOBD2 Scan Tool
  • The Innova 3160 not only fixed the Air Bag Lights, it also said I probably would not pass emissions (Due in 2 weeks) because my Battery disconnect had erased OBD info and needed more Driving to finish self testing. This tool is great, will start learning DIY repairing
  • So far it is performing very well. I used it on a 1996 BMW for the engine and srs codes and it worked very well. Also worked on a 2003 f-150 for abs codes. I am very pleased with the scanner so far.
  • This thing says it works with Chrysler vehicles, says it is ABS ready, well...it doesn't do much of anything on my 99 ram.
INNOVA 3160g Code Reader/Scan Tool
  • It's the absolute perfect triple threat! Engine, ABS and SRS with live data, It exactly pinpointed my SRS front crash sensor issue on my 2004 Buick Lesabre that I assumed, but didn't want to just change parts only to find that I was wrong to assume.
  • Good scanner. Works as described. It reads the OBD-2, SRS and ABS codes for the vehicles that I own. It can also record live data.
  • This scanner can move you up a notch if you are a better than average back-yard mechanic who occasionally works on the most popular American and Japanese models. One must know the electronic controls of modern cars to take full advantage of it.
  • Most of the time this scanner is great, and a huge time saver. Tells you exactly what's going wrong with the car.
  • Regardless, this scanner is useless for SRS codes and clearing of SRS codes on a 2005 Dodge Durango.

What customers say about "Diagnostic"
INNOVA 3160E ABS/SRS + CanOBD2 Scan Tool
  • Other than that small caveat, this product exceeds what a typical OBDII scanner will provide. The live data is great for those who want to really find out what is wrong with a car before parts switching.

  • Highly recommended for OBD2 ABS, SRS troubles. Clears everything. Nice live sensor displays and graphs. Freeze frame,
INNOVA 3160g Code Reader/Scan Tool
  • It's a nice scanner but don't buy it if reading SRS and ABS codes is important to you.
  • Lots of parameters for live data diagnostics, you can record live data as well.
  • Also worked on my sons Ford Fiesta (2012) without issues and ran scores of diagnostics that pointed to an air leak near the MAF sensor. Sure enough that fixed it up.
  • This is just the diagnostic tool that I've been waiting for!
  • This new Innova 3160E device is a feature packed, multi-language hand held automotive diagnostic tool that connects to your vehicle's OBD2 computer which reads the malfunction scan codes whenever a faulty Check Engine Light appears in your dashboard.

What customers say about "Features"
INNOVA 3160E ABS/SRS + CanOBD2 Scan Tool
  • Got right into what I needed it to do. Nice displays of sensors running.
  • This diagnostic scanning tool is filled with features. And it does them at a proffessional grade level.
  • And it has some online features that are also another tool to help get the answer to your vehicle's health and live operating condition. Ireccomend this tool to anyone at any level can find useful.
INNOVA 3160g Code Reader/Scan Tool
  • The reason I bought the code reader was to use the extra features, ABS brake system, Air bag system etc.
  • This new Innova 3160E device is a feature packed, multi-language hand held automotive diagnostic tool that connects to your vehicle's OBD2 computer which reads the malfunction scan codes whenever a faulty Check Engine Light appears in your dashboard.
  • Very handy features if you know what you are doing. You are not going to get all of those functions on a $200 tool, so be realistic when purchasing this.
  • People must understand that this device is packed with a lot of features however not every car utilize all the features or for that matter allow access to some features
  • The live-view is a neat feature, but I have not figured out how to use it as a tool when diagnosing a vehicle.
