If you own an Innova scanner, it's tailored to effortlessly connect with Nissan vehicles, whether they're vintage (prior to 1996) or modern (after 1996), contingent upon the specific model of your Innova.

Do Innova Scanners Work on Nissan Vehicles?

Nevertheless, it's crucial to note that not every feature functions consistently across all Nissan models. The effectiveness of the scanner depends on the particular year, brand, and model of your vehicle.

This article explores the capabilities of your Innova scanner with various Nissan models, providing clarity on your car's diagnostic abilities!

  • 2018 Nissan Pathfinder
  • 2009 Nissan Rogue
  • 2011 Nissan Maxima

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.
