Foxwell NT630 OBD2 SRS ABS reset tool review – 4 start product

My review of Foxwell NT630 OBD2 SRS ABS reset tool is 4 stars, my reasons are listed below.

My order shipped with:
-Attractive rugged ABS case
-LARGE/Long OBD2 cable with serial connector
-USB PC (Only) connector for updates and power on testing
-SD card (proprietary to the unit, and SD slot also needed for update/analysis)
-CD/Info booklet

The graphing capabilities and on-board software are very good. Testing with the engine running permits the operator to watch live data such as coolant temp, O2 operation, RPM, Voltage, etc…these can be stored on the SD card for playback).

The amount of vehicles stored onboard is excellent compared to other devices.

The ability to clear ABS codes and Airbag codes is significant, but BEWARE, as with other functions, this varies by vehicle and manufacturer…for what ever reason, some specific vehicles are not part of the database “but we will be adding more soon” (see other reviews). The manufacturer requests you contact them for specific vehicles, and this process isn’t quick…my requests took over a week.

Tested:
-2014 Acura MDX (All codes checked, live graphing, CAN and OBDII OK)
-2015 Honda CR-V (All codes checked, live graphing, CAN and OBDII OK)
-2007 Dodge Ram 1500 (All codes checked, live graphing, CAN and OBDII OK)
-2018 Honda Fit (All codes checked, live graphing, CAN and OBDII OK)
-2005 Acura MDX (All codes checked, live graphing, CAN and OBDII OK)
-1993 Mazda MX-3 (Mazda OBD1 Cable conversion used, no codes available, unit stalled, using OBDII menu as instructed by Manufacturer)
-1995 Honda Del Sol (Honda OBD1 Cable conversion used, no codes available, unit stalled, using OBDII menu as instructed by Manufacturer)
-1989 Honda Civic (Honda OBD1 Cable conversion used, no codes available, unit stalled, using OBDII menu as instructed by Manufacturer).

Foxwell NT630 can also be used while operating the vehicle (with an observer using the equipment of course!), and live driving conditions can be graphed, noted.

To sum up:
Ultimately we own other scanners that are $100’s cheaper and perform basically the same functions. Odds are that if you are in need of an engine analyzer for graphing and tuning, you probably have or want a more expensive unit.

For the average user, these extra functions are subjective, and probably not worth the $’s, and ultimately are a novelty not a necessity.

Take the time to contact the dealer/manufacturer (as we did to verify the OBD1 capability, only to find out that the cars we wanted to test were not included) to make sure the car you want to use this product on is compatible with this unit, already in the database, and will perform the test you specifically need, ALL BEFORE you purchase!
