Functions of the Foxwell NT650 Automotive OBD2 Scanner

First and foremost, the Foxwell NT650 supports the most commonly used services and maintenance.

With 13 kinds of reset functions, this device can help you find the exact problem in your vehicle.

Some of these functions include reading and clearing DTC codes, oil reset, battery rest, airbag reset and many more.

However, it should be noted, that not every function is compatible with every vehicle make and model.

With that in mind, the two special features of auto-lock brake reset (ABS) and airbag crash data reset (SRS) are both available for 58 makes and models.

That being said, some of the special features include:

EPB-brake reset

You can do your own servicing and maintenance of your vehicles electronic brakes, including setting brakes after replacement, as well as activation and deactivation of the brake control system.

In the event of bleeding brake fluid or opening and closing brake pads, this tool can help diagnose any EPB related issue.

Is the Foxwell NT650 compatible with your vehicle?

One of the high rating qualities about this OBD2 scanner is that it is compatible with a wider variety of vehicles.

This tool works on OBD I and II vehicles, mini-vans, light-duty trucks, including recent makes and models.

While the ABS and SRS diagnostics are compatible with many makes and models, not every function is compatible with every type of car.

I would advise any potential buyers to first contact the extremely helpful customer support at Foxwell Technologies.

Some features of this OBDII scanner can assist with a quick assessment and diagnostic of your vehicles needs, but not ALL vehicle needs.

Lifelong free upgrade for NT650.
FOXWELL NT650 offers common and advanced services for a wide range of car make.

For example, this tool offers a quick one-click oil reset, however, this quick-fix is limited to GM models only.

For all Asian, European and American vehicles, manual reset is displayed in an easy step-by-step format.

    • Most obd2 scanner will work if your car is fitted with the OBD connector or “OBD2 compliant vehicle”. Please check more compatibility with the seller. However, I recommend that if you cannot use all service function for your model, would you consider other scan tools?

    • This is an obd2 scanner, there are different tools specifically for odometer reset. However, this function allows you to revise the date of odometer and write the original date into new

      • I have a foxwell nt650, it seems that this scantool does work on all japan made vehicle in our country here in asia, every time i select the OBD2 function it does not work, almost all the car i have tested on mitsubishi, toyota, nissan, suzuki it does not work, it only work one time i scan a ISUZU dmax.i already registered and update my scantool already.. Hope some one could help fix my concern

        • Hi, it works with different functions on different vehicles. Not every vehicle is the same. To be sure, you can send the VIN numbers to foxwelltech to check compatibility.

  3. Hi Im trying to choose between foxwell NT650 or Foxwell NT644. Can you quick explain me please is it worth to by pro version. Thanks in advance

    • Hello, thanks for your question.
      NT650 can perform the DPF cleaning to clear the blockage through continuous burning of the particulates captured in the DPF filter.

  4. I was considering the NT520 since I have a BMW, but was thinking of getting the NT650 because I have other vehicles as well. Does this do all of the BMW specific functions that the NT520 does as well as for other vehicles or is this generic functions for many vehicles

  5. Vehicle is a 2011 Ram 5500 truck, vin# 3D6WU7CL3BG503xxx, and has the Cummins 6.7 ltr diesel pickup type engine in it, Regards.

    • Hi Dave,
      I have checked and it’s not supported on this model by NT650, please look at one of the other bigger machine scanners.

    • Tim,
      Does this model or the NT520 provide brake bleeding like the NT630 Elite? I can’t seem to find a definitive answer on that question no matter where I search.

        • Hi Alex,
          For this scanner, auto bleed can be used on BOSCH ABS driver type 5.3, which also include Honda and Toyota. Please check your vehicles if they’re equipped with Bosch 5.3. Or try this Autel Maxicheck Pro for ABS brake bleeding.

          Hope it helps,

    • This TPMS programming can check the tire sensor IDs from the vehicle ECU, perform TPMS programming and reset after tires and/or TPM sensors are replaced and/or tires are rotated.
