Fountain Valley, CA, November 4, 2008. - Equus Products, Inc., expands its top-selling on-board diagnostic tool line to include two new products. Making their debut at the AAPEX Show are the INNOVA® 3150 CanOBD2® + ABS Diagnostic Tool (MSRP $249 U.S.); and the INNOVA® 3160 CanOBD2® + ABS ScanTool (MSRP $349 U.S.). Our customers asked for the addition of ABS coverage on our popular INNOVA® handheld diagnostic tools, and we delivered. Available in the first quarter of 2009, each includes all of the value-packed features and functions you’ve come to expect from our diagnostic tools plus the ability to diagnose anti-lock brake problems on most 1996 and newer GM, Ford and Chrysler makes. "Our customers have been asking for a tool that will diagnose both check engine and ABS codes at the same time, a tool that will tackle both jobs so you don’t have to look in the toolbox for another tool when your car shows an ABS code," said Richard Amador, Equus' Marketing Director. "The INNOVA® OBD2 tool line is highlighted by our best selling 3100 CanOBD2 Code Reader, which has already sold more than 450,000 units”.

The INNOVA® 3150 CanOBD2® + ABS Diagnostic Tool diagnoses all check engine lights on 1996 and newer OBD2 compliant cars, light trucks, SUVs and minivans - foreign and domestic as well as ABS codes on 1996 and newer GM, Ford and Chrysler vehicles. This tool which gives you freeze frame data features all of they key features and benefits of a professional diagnostic tool, without the typical hassle and cost associated with such powerful tools.

The INNOVA® 3160 ScanTool + ABS CanOBD2® Scan Tool offers the same features and functions as the 3150 but comes with the added bonus of a backlit blue screen and Enhanced live data which lets the user record and playback live data and perform bi-directional testing.

Both tools feature trilingual interface with on-screen code definitions in English, Spanish and French; patented all-in-one display showing 25 vital pieces of information at one time; "plug & play" interface; color-coded System Status LEDs that show emissions readiness status; and automatic re-link for performing drive cycles to verify repairs. They both include over a hundred dollars in value-adds, including durable nylon storage pouch, PC link cable and CD with OBD-PC Link Shopsoftware. The included software lets you download, save print and email additional information from the tool, including trouble codes, monitor status and freeze frame data. Both tools also come with access to RepairSolutions which gives trouble code definitions, a full diagnostic report, probable causes, most likely fix to DTC’s, repair costs and more.
