- Full OBD2 function
There is a total of 10 OBD2 functions for Foxwell NT809, Foxwell NT726 and Foxwell NT624 Elite, which makes these three scanners fantastic for mechanics and technicians who work on multiple vehicle issues that need several OBD2 functions.
For DIY users, NT624 Elite is cheaper and more basic because they do not need the all-system diagnostics and advanced service functions.
- Full system diagnostics
Not like the standard scan tools (typically cost less than $100) which can only access to e engine, ABS, airbag, and transmission, Foxwell NT809, NT726, and NT624 Elite support all the system diagnostics in your vehicle, which is very essential since they help you locate a vehicle’s fault when the issue isn’t emissions-related.
A full system diagnostic scanner on the other hand is able to capture more potential problems and help you get rid of that CEL for good, not only reset the check engine light on by erasing the trouble code.
Foxwell NT809, NT726, and NT624 Elite can check all control modules and pinpoint the exact issue from all the systems in your vehicle.
- Supported protocols
There are five communication protocols that OBD2 compliant vehicles can use; SAE J1850 PWM, SAE J1850 VPW, ISO014230 (KWP2000), ISO9141-2, and ISO15765-4/SAE J2480. These protocols have several variants that are sometimes counted as separate protocols but they aren’t. The mentioned five are the ones to focus on.
Foxwell NT809, NT726, and NT624 Elite support all of these protocols. The three scan tools can function on vehicles that use the five protocols so long as they are in the vehicle coverage list.
