DEAL: Kill ‘Check Engine’ Lights with a Pro Grade OBD2 Scan Tool
I’ve previously praised the little Autel MS300, a entry level OBD2 scan tool for the DIY’er on a budget. The MS300 is a stocking stuffer, but if you want a premium gift consider the INNOVA 3160 Diagnostic Scan Tool (http://goo.gl/nL38aJ) with ABS/SRS and Live Data. It’s available TODAY for a limited time in limited quantities at 69% off as Amazon’s “Deal of the Day.”
What makes the INNOVA unit so special? To put it in car terms, if the MS300 is a Yugo, this thing is a loaded Cadillac with fancy rims. The INNOVA unit is an impressive professional tool that includes everything except a kitchen sink. This is well suited for a home mechanic who wants a full-featured tool that puts the el cheapo jobs to shame.
The INNOVA 3160:
Reads “Check Engine” light warnings on all 1996 and newer cars, light trucks, SUVs and minivans, domestic and import – including C.A.N. (Controller Area Network)
Diagnoses ABS and SRS codes on most 1996 and newer GM, Ford, Chrysler, Toyota and Honda vehicles
Provides SAE enhanced Live Data – views, graphs, records, and plays back live PCM data streams on screen
Displays OBD2 Freeze Frame Data & turns off check engine, ABS and SRS lights
Unit can be USB (cable included) flash updated with a standard Windows PC.
The package includes scan tool, OBD2 cable, USB cable, soft pouch and quick reference guide.
If you are in the market for a pro grade OBD2 code reader, this INNOVA deal is a good one.
