All Innova branded scanners are built to work great with Acura vehicles, whether they’re OBDI (pre 1996) or OBDII certified (post 1996)...depending on the type of scanner you own.

Do Innova Scanners Work on Acura Vehicles?

But it’s important to keep in mind that not every feature we advertise may be available for your vehicle. Whether it’s available or not depends on a vehicle’s specific year, make, and model.

This article aims to provide clarity on what works and doesn’t work with various Acura models. All provided information has been retrieved by using Innova’s Coverage Checker.

  • 2013 Acura RL

A Few Words of Caution

Depends on Vehicle

As mentioned above, feature availability depends on your specific vehicle. We can’t possibly go over every single vehicle year, make, and model combo, so we’ll only stick to a few of the most popular ones.

If you’d rather check vehicle compatibility yourself and see all the features available by your vehicle’s specific year and model, feel free to utilize our Coverage Checker. We present this information to the best of our knowledge, but it is not guaranteed.

Depends on Tool

It’s obvious, but feature availability will depend on the type of scanner you choose. For the purpose of this article, we’ll use our most advanced handheld scanner - the Innova 5610 - as our scanner.

You can use our Comparison Chart to check which model supports what feature. For example, if the Innova 5610 supports EPB reset, you can safely assume the Innova 5510 will also be able to reset it.
