Hello Foxwell,

I am interested in an ODB2 scanner for use with my 2007 Toyota Highlander

brake system on the Toyota and Lexus, also I would like to be able to read

transmission fluid temperature on the Toyota or Lexus.


I am looking for the most cost-effective choice that will fulfill the above

requirements. The NT650 looks like a good choice, but you may have a better

Foxwell NT520 scanner reviews for Mercedes VW Renault

foxwellshop | 24 April, 2019 05:55

Foxwell NT520 scanner reviews for Mercedes VW Renault: price, delivery etc.



I live in Romania Europe and I am interested in buying NT520 for my 3 cars:
- Mercedes G400 CDI 2001
- Vw Touareg R5 2003
- Renault Megane Cabrio 1.9 diesel 2004

Can you please tell me if I can buy the NT520 and if it will work with all these 3 cars, and where can I buy it from that will ship to Romania?
I can pay with PayPal.

Thank you,


Sales FoxwellTool.com reply:

The Foxwell NT520 comes with one car diagnostic software for free, and the other two for charging 60USD per one, that is one unit 179USD plus 2 software(60USD each) 179 + 60+60 , 299USD in total including  shipping cost to Romania by DHL or YANWEN. You can choose one of them. DHL will be quicker, 3-5 working days, but you need to pay for the tax your own.

YANWEN no tax, needs 7-10 working days to arrive, no tax.


If you agreed, we can send you a PayPal invoice, and you can pay it directly.



Yanwen seems better then.

And agreed with the price, so you can send the PayPal invoice.


Finally, this user got Foxwell NT520 scanner happily.

Definition of Foxwell NT520Pro Secondary air system Monitoring (INC)

foxwellshop | 05 April, 2019 06:43

I need help with your abbreviations on the screen of my new Foxwell NT520 Pro.


I am working on an I/M readiness problem in OBD2.


The screen shows “NC” for the Secondary Air. What does this mean please? Not Connected? No connection? Or what ? I tried a google search but only got North Carolina.:-)


The Durametric I usually use shows “Pass” or ”Fail” for these results. Very unambiguous.


Thank you,


Here is the “NC” for which I asked for a definition.


It appears in the I/M Readiness screen .The section is Secondary Air.


I checked the manual online and could find no information on this issue.


So what does NC mean please?




the NC is actually the INC. It refers to INC (Incomplete) - vehicle was not driven enough to complete the monitor.


It means, the vehicle does not meet the emission requirements and needs to be inspected for maintenance.

Foxwell NT510 NT520 Porsche scanner test reports: same as durametric pro?

foxwellshop | 15 January, 2019 23:05

Post starts with a user's real test report, this story goes like this:

I made this video review of some of the major functions of the Foxwell NT510 with Porsche software.

it offers remarkable functionality for the price and most of the functions the durametric pro offers.


The only feature lacking currently is the service reset but im told they are scheduling an update for that


Please note im no actor but just wanted to explain some of the functions





Also Porsche 997 ABS system diagnosis with foxwell NT510:




Question 1:

Nice, thorough review. Good show!

Does it permit reprogramming of the passenger side window function?

Did you order a Porsche specific scanner , then go to the Foxwell website?

It's listed for $179 on Amazon. Where did you purchase.


Thanks in advance for all the info...



Answer: i got mine direct from foxwell on sale for $149 and it came with one free car software. You can load several manufacturers on there if u have several cars.



You can code a ton of comfort convenience functions. Let me know which one and ill check. You can clear airbags as well.



Question 2: Does this show overrevs (range 1 - 6)?

What about ECU operating hours and POSIP (airbag) operating hours?

Answer: Yup its in the video

coding modules

overrev reports

live data streaming and recording

abs pump cycling

clearing modules

etc, etc


Question 3:

I was wrong on the comment about Durametric being able to fit the passenger window auto up issue. I confused the Durametric programming that you and others have posted about with Mods4Cars "RemoteKey" device:


Answer: the nt510 does most of the functions of remotekey. The windows on my 9971 have 1 press auto down for the passenger side and one press auto up only after the windows halfway up. I notice even on the remote key description it says that some cars will only be able to do 1 press auto up after their halfway up as well. I have a feeling its the exact same as on my car. You can activate all the comfort functions from the remote key fobs and you can mess with the alarm horn chime etc etc




Fact: Foxwell NT510 Porsche scanner is replaced by Foxwell NT520.

And more and more users have NT520 pro and prove it works fine.




Feedback yes......

I purchased the Foxwell NT520 and it can read codes and clear codes as well as reset service light. I also have the pro Durametric cable and the NT520 reads the same codes. I recently updated the NT520 software to read my son?s MB ML350 for only $60. Easy to do and came in handy reading a check engine light on the Benz. For the money and the convenience the NT520 is a good buy. The Durametric allows me to run and record engine diagnostics.




Feedback No......

I just did the last software update (JUN of 2018) to my NT510 and it will not reset my service interval on the 997.1 much less the 997.2. On the positive side it did re-calibrate my steering wheel sensor after I just installed a 991.2 paddle shifting wheel.



Just downloaded the latest nt510 update and the rear control module can now be programmed. Thats awesome.

Thanks for their reports



If you are interested in Foxwell NT520 pro you can read the above thread. If you already have one Foxwell NT520 pro and have good or bad test reports, you can also share with others in the above thread.


Which Foxwell on DPF Regeneration, Steering alignment and Airbag light?

foxwellshop | 26 December, 2018 06:48

Question: I am interested in buying one of your scanners, however its quite confusing.

I require a scanner which has DPF Regeneration, Steering alignment and Airbag light to switch off, which scanner is the best, less than $300.

Answer: If you just need to work on one vehicle, you are advised to use Foxwell NT520


Question: I bought the NT510 Pro yesterday with BMW program, however I was really interested in buying the NT644, The only reason I didn't buy it is because it has less functions than the NT510 what is the difference between them as I could not find anything.


You can have a look at this thread: http://www.foxwellsupport.com/foxwell-nt520-vs-nt510-vs-nt644-vs-nt624-vs-nt414/


Generally speaking: the NT644 pro will support more vehicles, but will not cover all functions of NT510/NT520. Because the NT510/NT520 share the same software as GT80 series. Please kindly note. However, it is still a good choice if you need to work on multi-brand vehicles.


How to use Foxwell BT705 Battery tester on a good battery and a bad battery?

foxwellshop | 20 December, 2018 03:42

Today I will talk about Foxwell Battery tester BT705. Using it to test in a 12v system battery in the car and one 12V system battery out of car.


It's good package with manual and long cable.



Hook it up, red to positive and black to negative.


So as soon as I plugged it, it right away power on.


12 Volt system.


In vehicle.


Top Post.






710 CCA




Good recharge.

Ask me to measure 694CCA. Ok it wants me to start a car but currently 694 cold cranking amps, so start a car.


The Foxwell BT705 tester comes with a long cable, I am sitting in the car.


Turn this thing on.


Charging test...


Enggine Rev Not detected..


Try again.


Turn high beam and blower motor on, idle engine, press to continue.



Ok, done, no problem.


OK, let's test Foxwell BT705 battery tester on the battery that is having problem.



Enter "12 volt system".


Out of vehicle.


Top post.




cold cranking by 550 AMPS, the number on the battery.



Above 0°C


Ok, that's the result.

Measured 232CCA and Rated 550CCA, so the battery is bad.


You can connect a Bluetooth Printer.



You can see Battery test, view/print, language, Bluetooth etc.


So, Foxwell BT705 is a great tester.

A little bit better than using the old voltmeter.

It's good to have it run.

HOW TO setup BMW ENET cable software E-SYS ? Edit

foxwellshop | 27 September, 2016 01:38

It’s an instruction on how to setup BMW ENET cable software E-SYS on Windows XP & Mac OS X.



  • Laptop running Windows XP or higher (Mac OS X is capable, only if running a ywindows VM)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 3GB Free Hard Drive Space
  • WiFi Connection at the location of the car to be coded
  • Ethernet port (to connect the ENET Cable)


It is VERY important that you setup/install the software in the following order.

  1. Extract the ESYS RAR file, and begin the ESYS Software Setup (click through, accept all agreements, use

default locations for all software file locations when prompted during setup)

  1. Use WinRAR to decompress PSDzDATA files to the location: C:\data\psdzdata\

The sub-folders should be moved directly to C:\data\psdzdata\ as indicated in the picture below:


  1. From the ESYS RAR file, run the ESYS Launcher Setup (Requires MS .NET Framework 4.0)
  2. This is the Token Generator, as well as the program you should use to run ESYS (do not use the icon that the ESYS installer provides to launch the program, instead use the icon that the launcher provides.
  3. After installation, the Token Generation process will occur. Please see below and pick the correct file location, and select your own personal 4-8 alphanumeric PIN code.


  1. ESYS Launcher will set the default memory settings, activate the free token for use with ESYS, as well as validate that all CAFD files are signed by the developer to protect you from malicious CAFDs floating around the internet! The Launcher will also provide descriptive text injection “on-the-fly” to allow you to use the newest PSDzDATA with ESYS software for FDL coding!
  2. Since people have tried to exploit the generous free tool created by Token Master, he has implemented a 48 hour delay before the software can be used. It also will only function for 1 specific model, chosen by chassis code, so be sure to set it correctly. Please see screenshots below:



AFTER 48 hours after installation, when you open the launcher, you will see this message:
