Review: INNOVA 6100P SRS ABS Engine OBD2 Scan Tool

Review INNOVA 6100P SRS ABS Engine OBD2 Scan Tool
The INNOVA 6100P is an advanced scan tool that can read standard OBD2 engine codes as well as ABS and SRS errors.
 
Most any OBDII scan tool can read and erase standard errors but only advanced units can also scan and erase ABS and SRS.
 
Troubleshooting ABS (Anti Brake System) or SRS/Airbag (Supplemental Restraint System) is much easier with a good OBDII scan tool.

The INNOVA 6100P is one such scan tool built to show why an ABS or SRS dashboard light is on and what the problem is.

It can also clear the ABS/SRS codes but the dashboard light will likely come back on if the problem is not fixed.

The package contains the carry bag, OBDII cable, INNOVA 6100P unit and instructions.

The back of the units holds 3 AA batteries. The unit can also be powered from the OBDII port on a car or truck.

The button layout has Power, Erase, System Menu, Power Link, Main Menu, Freeze Fame, Up, Down, and Enter.

To test the unit I used a 2012 Toyota Corolla that has an ABS problem and the Traction light constantly on.

I have reviewed several other OBDII scan tools and have not been able to read the ABS codes on the car.

Pressing the System Menu button displays the Global OBD2, ABS/SRS options along with OEM Enhanced.

It will ask to confirm the vehicle by pressing the Enter button.

The unit will look for ABS codes stored in the computer.

It also gave the code C1422 Master Cylinder Pressure Sensor Zero Point High.

It had no problems pulling the ABS OBDII codes on the 2012 Toyota Corolla.

Getting the codes was nice to have since several other scan tools I have tested have failed to work.

Next, I erased the ABS error codes by pressing the red erase button.

The unit had no problems erasing the ABS errors.

Summary
The INNOVA 6100P OBDII scan tool works very well reading and clearing ABS and SRS codes.
 
I had no problems reading the errors on a 2012 Toyota Corolla along with erasing them.
 
The unit also has many other feature such as freeze frame and Enhanced OBDII codes.

There is also an erase oil light section that will give the steps to turn off the maintenance required light.

Most vehicles use a combination of the odometer button and key to turn the oil maintenance required light off.

The INNOVA 6100P gives the steps to follow to turn the light off after an oil change.

I am still testing the unit so far with good results and will update if anything changes.
 
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon, forums, or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
