Recently, many users gave good feedback about Foxwell NT510 Elite. They said it worked perfectly on BMW injector coding, fault code read, diagnosis, reset brake etc.Go ahead to read more details.
Review 1: NT510 elite for BMW injector coding. (Works!)
I bought this NT510 elite to code in injectors on my N54 powered 335xi. It is pretty clunky, and I am red-green colorblind. This made it difficult to enter numbers in for coding. I had to look for movement on the screen to see what was highlighted. Kind of challenging. Also without a power supply the car shut off the obd2 port while I was entering numbers.
Things to keep in mind when coding injectors:
I eventually used a power supply while I had the scanner plugged in. I also noticed that if I left the door of the car open, it wouldn’t automatically read the Vin number of the car. I had to turn my jb4 to map 0 to get the injector values to save. So I tried a total of four times to enter values. It finally worked and was well worth the price and effort. The car runs way better now and starts quickly after replacing leaky injectors and replacing spark plugs.
Review 2: Well worth getting. Good for clearing fault codes and diagnosis!
Bought this for my 2019 440i Grand Coupe. I had a bunch of weird codes pop up when I accidentally turned my car on with the airbag taken off. Was changing my steering wheel. Dealership wanted a ton of money to clear them even though nothing was really wrong or broken. I bought this and it cleared then all and does a diagnostic too, which is actually pretty cool. Registration and update are a little weird but I eventually figured it out. The only personal info you have to give them is your name, country and email. All in all it worked great and am glad I bought it.
Review 3: Perfectly reset brake sensor
The FOXWELL NT510 is easy to use and works well. I recently upgraded rotors and pads to PowerStop on our 2011 BMW X3 35i. New brake wear sensors were replaced and the manual “reset” was completed on the instrument panel. Within 3 weeks the internal computer came to the conclusion the rear pads and rotors needed to be replaced even though inspection did not reveal any need to replace and were installed correctly. After research, I found that the FOXWELL NT510 was used in a post to reset the car computer. It took about 5 minutes to reset the rear brake warning light. I know the device has the capabilities to do much more which will be explored.
Review 4: Works for deleting transport mode
Can delete transport mode. I drive rarely and if I don’t disconnect my battery after a week or two of being parked it would drain the battery. I was having to get my local shop to take it out of transport mode for me when I took my z4 in for something else. Now I can do it myself. It is worth it to me.
Review 5: Just buy it! Have success to read codes and live data
If you have a BMW and are thinking about purchasing this scanner think no more. Buy it! I have a 2006 BMW X5 3.0 it read all 38 modules and gave me exact issues with my car. Mine happened to be MAF sensor and I was able to verify it with this tool as well by going to live data and looking at the readings from the MAF Sensor. Voltage, air flow and intake air temp, live… this is just one example, it can do many many things for your BMW, you won’t regret it.
Review 6: Worth Its’ Weight In Gold
Using this scanner once more than pays for itself with the cost savings of not going to a dealership. Easy to use and is a must have item is you want to work on your own BMW. I have a 2007 BMW 750Li and have starting doing a lot of the service / maintenance myself and this tool is invaluable.
Review 7: Pays for itself after first needed use
Used this to diagnose the service engine soon light on my BMW. This reader did the job and more. I was very impressed with just how much you can do with this thing…the sheer amount of diagnostic and computer control goes far beyond my abilities as a garage mechanic. Shut off individual fuel injectors one by one? Sure go ahead!!! This thing is magic. Any BMW owner should have one in the trunk. Pays for itself after first needed use.
