Tool Reviews

Will the Code Reader damage my vehicle’s electronic systems?

Innova’s Code Readers and Scan Tools are designed to retrieve information that is stored in your vehicle’s computer. With the exception of initiating the EVAP system Leak Test, O2 Test, and Non-Continuous Test (for vehicles that support these tests), the tools do not command, control, or otherwise enter information to your vehicle. It is not possible for these tools to damage your vehicle’s electronic system.

What extra features does the software offer?

The Pc link software will allow you to connect the Code Reader to a PC and transfer the information retrieved from your vehicle’s computer. It will allow you to create a basic report that provides you with the code, code definitions, freeze frame data and if available possible causes for the DTC's.  You can also purchase a premium membership, this will give you access to Verified Fixes for codes, Predicted Vehicle Repairs based on the current mileage, and access to our full library of do it yourself videos. 

I lost my Owner’s Manual, and software CD, where can I get another one? 

You can download a copy of the Owner’s Manual  in Adobe PDF format and download the software from Innova website (www.innova.com). Click on the "Support" Tab, and choose "Manuals and Software". 

Will this Code Reader display a vehicle’s VIN?

The 3100g Code Reader incorporates the capability to retrieve and display “Vehicle Information” (the VIN and controller ID numbers) to determine the version of programming in the vehicle’s computer. *Not all vehicles will support this function.

Can I use the Code Reader with the engine running?

We always recommend connecting the Code Reader to your vehicle first, before turning on the ignition or starting the vehicle. So long as this procedure is followed, you can use the Code Reader on the vehicle while it is running.
IMPORTANT: If it is necessary to drive the vehicle while observing the Code Reader's display (such as when performing a Drive Cycle), ALWAYS have a second person help you. One person should drive while the second person observes the Code Reader's display.

Will this code reader display live data and do bi-directional functions?

No. it won't  stream Live Data and it doesn’t have bi-directional functions. Please refer to Innova’s Scan Tools for Live Data capabilities. 

Where can I get code definitions for the codes I retrieved if definitions are not available through the Code Reader?

Definitions for all available DTCs (both Generic and Manufacturer-specific) can be accessed through the Innova website (www.innova.com). Go to the "Support" tab, choose DTC Library, and follow the on-screen instructions. Please enter P0 (zero), not Po when entering the codes. 

What vehicles will this Code Reader work on?

All of the Innova Code Readers and Scan Tools support all 1996 and newer OBD-II certified vehicles, including diesels, which weigh less than 8,500lbs Gross Vehicle Weight and were sold in the United States or Canada. Vehicles that weigh more than 8500lbs Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) are considered “heavy duty vehicles,” and are not required to be OBD2-compliant. If you do not know if your vehicle is OBD-II certified, you can check your emissions label under the hood, found typically on the roof of the hood, or near the radiator. Vehicles sold in other countries, although similar, are not configured the same as vehicles sold in the United States and Canada, and our tools may not be able to link to them. There are times when our tools will link to vehicles sold outside the United States or Canada, but this functionality is not guaranteed.

There are no "Available Upgrades" available.
