If you have an Innova scanner, it's designed to work seamlessly with Alfa Romeo cars.

Do Innova Scanners Work on Alfa Romeo Vehicles?

But it's important to know that not all features work the same way for all Alfa Romeo vehicles. How well it works depends on the year, make, and model of your car.

This article breaks down what your Innova scanner can do with different Alfa Romeo models, so you can easily understand your car's diagnostics!

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.

Chrysler SGW Application

Alfa Romeo vehicles are part of the Chrysler family (FCA). Most FCA vehicles manufactured after 2018 and up have a Secure Gateway (SGW) installed, which requires special access in order for scan tools to diagnose these vehicles.

Currently, only the Innova 7111 supports SGW access.
