If you own an Innova scanner, it's designed to work seamlessly with GMC cars. Depending on the specific Innova scanner you have, it can handle both older GMC models (pre-1996) and newer ones (post-1996).

But here's the important part: not every feature works the same way on every GMC. It all depends on the year, make, and model of your car.

In this article, we'll take a closer look at what your Innova scanner can do for certain GMC cars. Let's make understanding your car diagnostics straightforward!

  • 2017 GMC Acadia
  • 2012 GMC Savana
  • 2022 GMC Terrain

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.

If you’d like to learn more about how to utilize our Coverage Checker, please click here.

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.
