since i plan to keep this versa for ten years, i am thinking about
purchasing a consult-iii, to save expensive trips to the nissan
shop. the consult-iii tools available have a wide range of prices.
i suspect those from china are questionable from the standpoint
that they may be cloned tools and may not be reliable
anyone on this forum have a consult-iii for the nissan versa?
would appreciate input based on your experience.
The Consult III looks to be Nissan (Renault) specific.
Can it re-program TPMS sensors? That'd be cool.
I have an Innova 3160 W/ABS which works with all my OBD2 vehicles.
I've been happy so far.
Also, the Scanguage II "Checks for Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs), clears the codes, and can turn off the "Check Engine" light".
I installed one in my Versa and it's a helpful tool to monitor and attain good mileage.

frenchy chan, thanks for responding. my 09 versa is just out of warranty
and since i am a DIYer, i would like to do most of my own repairs. i
followed one of the procedures in the FSM and it says i need to replace
the BCM (body control module). i would like to use the nissan-specific
consult-iii scan tool for confirmation. while some of the procedures in
the FSM state that you can use a generic scan tool, a LOT of the procedures
call for the specific consult-iii tool. and, if i understand it correctly, the
NATS (nissan anti theft system) requires the consult-iii scan tool to
troubleshoot; so for the long term which i plan to keep this versa, i
probably should invest in the consult-iii tool, even as expensive as
it is advertised.
Vinnie Versa: be careful with leaning. if a tool will let you lean the
fuel supply too much, the valves will run too hot (known by the old
timers as "burn the valves"). the valves will actually be destroyed
(i removed a valve that looked like a mushroom long ago, not on
hmm...we are diyers, too and with both our versa and our huge mazda 3 build, we've never used specific scan tools, just our old dashhawk and we've never had problems
let us know if you get it! i'm curious to hear about it
