Part 1: Foxwell NT630 review on 2002 Mercedes Benz CLK320 SRS light

Issue description:

I induced the warning light back several days ago when I decided to replace a couple of stepper (never again!) motors so I knew that I wasn’t looking for a hard fault.

I can confirm that Foxwell NT630 did it and it was pretty straight forward to use. No other faults picked up on the car so I can’t comment any further on its performance. Foxwell NT630 is supposed to support most vehicles up to 2013 and compatible with both OBDI and OBDII cars, SUVs, minivans, light-duty trucks sold worldwide. So hopefully I’m future proofed for a few years. $179 cheaper than ebay, I will have chance to use it on other vehicle models. Foxwell NT630 is claimed to be compatible with most vehicles from America, Asia and Europe, if you are a professional technician, it can’t be more suitable.

 

Part 2: Foxwell NT630 review on Ford Falcon BA V8 ABS warning light illuminated and brakes not operating

Car model and year:

Ford Falcon BA V8

Issue description:

Because of the safety of functional and safe brake operation, the ABS Module (and the SRS Module) does a self test by supplying voltages to each pin and measuring the voltage (the short version) on its corresponding return pin. In an instance when the voltage is not within its specified parameters -IE. Too High, Too Low, Missing, The ABS module then determines the relevant fault and deactivates the ABS system and illuminated the ABS warning light, which happens during each key cycle. This is why the light illuminates when the key turns on.
