Will Innova obd2 scanners work on ford vehicles

Absolutely. All Innova branded scanners will work on Ford vehicles. Depending on the type of scanner you purchase, you’ll also be able to diagnose both OBD1 (pre-1996) and OBD2 (post-1996) vehicles.

However, it’s important to understand that not all features we provide may be available on your Ford vehicle. Every vehicle’s year, make, and model will have different feature sets.

In this article, we’ll go over the available OBD2 features in-depth for certain select Ford vehicles.

  • 2019 Ford F-150
  • 2005 Ford F-150
  • 2010 Ford Mustang
  • 2001 Ford Explorer

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.
