The Innova 3100 CanOBD2 Diagnostic Tool is the DIY’s choice that comes with many professional features. This easy-to-use tool connects to your 1996 and newer car, truck or SUV, and retrieves a list of diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and code definitions from your vehicle's computer. You can also view freeze-frame data which shows the condition of the vehicle when the code was set which makes diagnosing the problem that much easier. Combine this with Internet connectivity and the ability to interface with a PC, and you have a powerful, professional diagnostic tool in the palm of your hand.
Many tools have already been developed to access these powerful on-board vehicle computers, but the Innova tool is particularly simple to use and surprisingly affordable. It is designed to be used by almost anyone, from a DIYer to the ASE master technician. The 3100 is designed to retrieve diagnostic codes in all OBD2 (1996 and newer) vehicles. The tool features a unique patented all-in-one screen and 3 color LED display for quick OBD check, so you'll know if you're ready to pass an emissions/smog test. The 3100 was built to display on-screen DTC definitions and user interfaces in English, Spanish, or French, and the trilingual language selection is accessed via a simple menu command. This device also stores diagnostic codes in its memory for off-car review and analysis. The 3100 is also equipped with the ability to connect to your PC. With the included cables and software you can connect the tool to your computer to generate, print, and save detailed diagnostic reports--plus you can even update the 3100 via the Internet.
The 3100 links to all OBD2 protocols including CAN (Controller Area Network). This device is equipped to retrieve the following OBD2 diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs): Generic Codes (P0, P2, P3, and U0) and Manufacturer Specific Codes (P1, P3, and U1). In addition, the tool features an automatic refresh feature that updates data every 30 seconds when connected to the vehicle. This helps verify that your repair has worked.
All-in-One Screen and One-Push Button Functions
Handheld diagnostic tools should put all the information a user needs right in the palm of your hand, but too often other models bury this data within the device, requiring you to navigate through multiple menus to find what you want. The 3100 is different. Using a combination of its patented all-in-one screen, that allows for viewing 25 pieces of vital information in three languages--English, French or Spanish--all at once without having to search through multiple menus, and single-button function access, users are guaranteed quick, efficient access to data they need.Patented Emission Status LEDs
Over 30 States now use an OBD2 based system to check for emissions readiness, making it more important than ever to be aware of the status of your vehicle and to keep it running in top condition. With this in mind, the Innova 3100 has been designed with the ability to read the exact same emissions information as these state-required tests do to see if you will pass the first time around. Built around a simple color-coded system where Green = Pass, Yellow = Potential Problems and Red = Fail, users are able to quickly diagnose potential emission issues with the 3100. Other tool manufacturers charge over $100 for this feature alone and a separate tool has to be purchased, but the 3100 includes this with the price of purchase.Additional Diagnostic Resources at Innova.com
