How do I update my Craftsman code reader?

All of the code readers we manufacture for Craftsman have no current updates. Innova no longer manufactures code readers for Craftsman.

To update your tool, download the OBD Tool Updater for Windows or for Mac.  For instructions on using this program, please click HERE. For PC, use a USB type-A data cable. For Mac, use a USB type-C data cable.

If located within the U.S., we have a trade-in program to send your older Craftsman tool to our facility for one of the newest Innova scan tools at a discounted price.
