Compare Foxwell nt530 Honda scanner to dealer scanner (Honda HDS), some functions does not work:
Works – scan and clear all module DTC (eg, PGM-FI, AT, ABS, SRS etc..), except gauge control module. I can access body electrical, but unable to find gauge control module with this scanner.
Does not work – so far, tested shorting SCS, turn off fuel pump to release fuel pressure, non of them work. the screen is showing SCS is shorted, fuel pump is turned off, but actually they are not.
I bought Foxwell nt530 Honda scanner for work, dealer scanner sometimes takes long time to retrieve all DTC, and reset PCM/ECM, throttle body reset, etc,,, so I bought this scanner to do the job quicker and work my own car at home, however some functions does not work, so it is useless other than scanning and clearing DTCs.
If I can reset maintenance reminder on this scanner, that would have been better but does not offer maintenance reminder reset either.
To be upgrading…
