Foxwell NT500 VAG OBDII scanner exprience

This review on Foxwell NT500 scan tool will unravel slowly because it’s cold as sh*t out here

As you can see above, the scanner comes with the following items:
– NT500 VAG scan tool
– User’s guide
– Memory card
– USB cable
– Diagnostic cable
– Nylon carry pouch

I purchased this item for a couple of reasons:
1) I an old SKODA and it has quite some miles on the ODO (nearly 14K now). I wanted to be able to diagnose any potential issues on the fly and do as many DIY fixes myself as possible.
2) The price point for NT500 was just right. US$169 is ok price for me
3) My wife prepare to buy AUDI Q7 2015. This item might help Q7 also in the future.

To begin with, I go through the basic functions. Below is the start-up screen as soon as the device is plugged into the OBDII port (The unit will power-up as soon as it’s plugged in). It gives you four options;*
1) OBDII*
2) VAG
3) Settings*
4) Playback
The device is easy to use (plug and play) and set-up is pretty self explanatory. i cycle through the scanner using the arrow buttons and enter/back buttons.

Then try Foxwell NT500 on my car for service light reset
ps. pics of the procedure

In the Application interface, press on the Enter button to load data
Go to SKODA diagnosis

Choose system

–> control unit

–> common

–> 17- instrument

Then the device will be communicating with the car
–> 8 adaption

–> go to input the channel number: 02, and then save and continue

–> go to set new value: 000 and save

–> confirm to set new value 0

Skoda service light reset successfully.

If you’re a home mechanic, it’s is seriously worth of your purchase, like me, you need access to your VAG car’s ECU but don’t want to spend the 250 needed for VCDS or have the need to code in new equipment. It’s straight forward and easy to operate, accessing all modules of VAG cars and clearing all faults while resetting all service indicators too.

The instructions are clear to follow with pictures for every step. Updating the software is easy too, especially if using a laptop with an SD card reader as you plug the tool’s card into your computer, run the software, update, unplug and go.

    VXDIAG VCX NANO and Forscan Test on Sport Trac Mountaineer I want just Shared my repairing experience of 2002 Sport Trac with 1998 Mountaineer drivetrain, with VXDIAG VCX NANO Ford and ELS27 FORScan scanner. Haven’t been able to get any past v86 to work when installed on a laptop running XP. I tried installing v81 then v91 then v97 but that didn’t work, not even for 3 days. Nor did changing the time, date and time zone. I was able to set the tire size and some other things, including reading DTCs that require communication with the PCM. But when attempting to program the latest calibration to the PCM or do the ABS Service Bleed, there’s suddenly a “PCM Communication Failure”. It also fails to do the KOEO and KOER tests, claiming it cannot sense when the brake pedal is depressed. All bogus, false errors. I get the same “communications failure” on a completely stock 1998 Mountaineer as I do on my 2002 Sport Trac with 1998 Mountaineer drivetrain. FORscan scan tool can do the KOEO and KOER tests and the ABS module self test with this VCX NANO device, but it does not yet support the ABS bleed function. FORscan can also clear KAM from the PCM, which IDS v86 fails to do with the VXDIAG VCX NANO, again that “communications failure” with the PCM. FORscan can also do the other tests that involve running the windows, wipers, locks and windshield washer.
