Default INNOVA 3150e

Purchased a INNOVA 3150e on Ebay. The scantool software I have used for the last six plus years is having trouble, and the Seller'* web-site is down.

Went with the INNOVA 3150e, only because it scans for ABS and SRS issues. I currently have two vehicles with ABS light on.

Paid $95 including shipping. Some risk involved as it is used and was a return to store. Amazon sells for $169 and I would also have to pay sales tax.

Have you received it yet? I would be curious what your thoughts are on it, shortcomings, etc.

Admittedly my Actron CP 9145 has been found lacking in the OBD2 department, and I would like something focused on that portion (worth its freaking weight in gold for OBD 1 and 1.5 however).

Mike, I have been running the OBD II software package you recommended for the past five or so years. I lost the OBD to USB connector and bought another on Amazon. I had a hard time getting the new connector to work, but after a few hours got it working.

Went to try the software the other day, and would not see the connector again. Went to the software provider web-site, maybe for a update. Looks like they may have shut down shop.

So, went looking for a hand held alternative that covers ABS, and this came up. So a auction on Ebay, so rolled the dice. I checked into Harbor Freights model, but it apparently does not cover ABS issues.

Jolly, aren't all your cars OB1... In fact, don't all your cars have points and carburetors?

Just kidding....

I will admit to all of my stuff being OBD1, I am just tired of looking silly when I try and practice automotive wizardry on a reasonably modern vehicle, and can't see much of anything.

You're right though, it is kind of scary to think about the OBD 2 standard being live for 20 years already. Is this what it feels like to get old?

Well, in this industry you get what you pay for. If you pay $50 for a scan tool, you will get cheap imitation junk. DO NOT fall for the cheap ebay ****. You will spend more time figuring out why the damn thing doesn't do XYZ then you would fixing the actual problem.
