You might’ve noticed that we generally urge you to utilize our Coverage Checker before purchasing our products. This is to ensure that your vehicle is compatible with the features you’re looking for.

Innova scanner doesn't work after using coverage checker?

However, there’s a small 1% chance of the scanner not performing the features you need, even after confirming with our Coverage Checker.

If you've purchased our tool(s) after verifying its features, but discovered that it’s still incompatible with your vehicle, here's what you can do.

   See how a customer resolved an error by reaching out to our support team.

Why It May Happen

Before we delve into the steps needed to resolve your compatibility issue, let me briefly explain why this error happens.

Our Coverage Checker is 99% accurate and under most circumstances, you shouldn’t be experiencing this error in the first place. But, like all technological software, there are tiny bugs that pop up every now and then.

Why Innova's coverage checker may be wrong

This causes either two of the following bugs to occur:

  • The Coverage Checker says it supports Feature X when it does not
  • The scanner fails to support Feature X when it’s supposed to

To resolve this issue, please follow the steps below. Once the steps below are completed, most get resolved.
