I just bought a scanner yesterday...they had them at 1/2 price, so I figured its time to come into the 21st century.......Its a Innova 3100....Loaded the software CD and it said there was an update, which I just did.....I havnt hooked it to a car yet......I am pretty much clueless at this, so will have to learn......

Guess we can learn this stuff together

scanners arent too tough . Understanding the CORRECT interpretation of a code is very important
Also understanding the data stream and its components , there basic construction (how they function) and their importance in the system .
I like scanners with Bi directional controls....meaning you can manipulate a certain device by commanding it with a scanner, it makes it fast and easy to rule out wiring issues when you can command a device. If a device doesnt function , run the command and watch the associated wiring for the voltage that the device operates on. If the voltage is correct, the device is bad and the wiring is good. If the voltage is not correct or not present , then the wiring or the PCM comes into play.
Logical and sequential deductive reasoning can be a solid attribute to a fast diagnosis, like when your working flat rate.....
