Foxwell NT650 compatibility:
One of the high rating qualities about this NT650 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.
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.
Foxwell NT650 abilities:
DTCs and OBD2 Test Modes
Although it supports advanced diagnostics, the Foxwell NT 650 can be used as a code reader. With it, you can read and erase codes from almost all the main systems of a car. They include ECU, ABS, SRS, EPB, DPF, TPMS TBA/TPS, CVT, and BRT.
Ordinary car owners are most concerned about ECU, ABS and SRS codes. By reading and erasing ECU codes you will be able to reset the Check Engine Light. Clearing ABS and SRS codes helps reset the warning lights for the anti-lock braking system and airbag system respectively.
Bi-Directional Tests
If you are more interested in advanced functions then you may want to read this and the next point more carefully. They both highlight the advanced diagnostics offered by this Foxwell scanner.
As far as bi-directional tests go, the NT650 supports well over 10 tests. They include ABS tests (ABS Version Test, ABS Manual Control Test & ABS Motor Test), Lamp Tests, Actuator Tests, Automated Test, Auto-bleed Test, Service Bleed, Brake Bleed Preparation Test, Idle Up Manual Control Test, Gear Tension Relief Test and Function Test.
These tests are used to determine the efficiency of a car’s system. For example, ABS tests enable the user to send commands to the ABS system and observe how it responds (like it would respond if the command had come from the car’s onboard computer).
The user then uses the information to determine whether the ABS system is functioning as it should or if it needs fixing. Mostly it is mechanics and DIY enthusiasts who use such tests. But even if you are an ordinary car owner it doesn’t hurt to have a scanner that can do them.
Special Service Functions
Alongside codes and bi-directional tests, the Foxwell NT650 also supports a number of special diagnostic functions. You can do oil service reset, DPF reset, EPB reset, SAS calibration, TPMS reset, camshaft gear learning, injector coding, and BMS service.
It records both live sensor data as well as freeze frame data. Equally important is the scanner’s ability to graph data for easy analysis.
1 SAS: Perform calibration of the Steering Angle Sensor,
1 DPF: Perform the DPF cleaning to clear the blockage through continuous burning of the particulates captured in the DPF filter,
1 TPMS: Check the tire sensor IDs, perform TPMS programming and reset after tires and/or TPM sensors are replaced and/or tires are rotated,
1 TBA/TPS: Throttle body alignment reset,
1 BRT: Verify new battery, tell you how to clear faults from dashboard and display,
1 CVT: Used to reset the compensation code and initialize the ECT after a solenoid valve or valve body assembly has been replaced,
1 Injector Coding: Help you reset and match the date after injector is replaced,
1 ABS&SRS: bi-directional diagnostic tests on anti-lock brake systems and air bags,
Foxwell NT650 can read and clear ABS and SRS codes pretty well. The former helps prevent tire skidding while the latter controls the airbag system.

1 EPB: Perform the service and maintenance of brake systems,
EPB is used to make a vehicle standstill on the road. This scanner can read EPB codes related to the electronic brake system. It lets you perform the maintenance of the brake system, activates/deactivate it, open/close brake pads, etc.

Moreover, it can also read and help clear SBC codes. These codes point towards a fault in the brake system and can help you understand it better
1 Oil service light reset: Helps you reset the service lamps on the instrument cluster,
The oil service light turns on when there isn’t enough oil in the engine. This OBD scanner offers this feature as well. You can reset the light with just a single button in GM models. For others, you’ll have to do it manually.
This scanner can read the oil service code and notify you when it’s time to change the oil.

Foxwell NT650 review:
1.functional and valuable
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.
  1. wide coverage
Exclusively an OBD2 scanner, the Foxwell NT650 covers over 58 car brands from the USA, EU, and Asia. But that’s just for ABS and SRS diagnostics. Other functions don’t work on all those vehicles.
For example, the oil reset function only covers 49 car brands while DPF regeneration covers even fewer – 33 brands. TPMS adaptation only works on 32 makes of cars while throttle body alignment works on 30.
Although it has a wide coverage, the range of functions you will get largely depends on the make of your car. You may want to check with Foxwell first before making your purchase.
  1. bi-directional test worked good
I bought NT650 for bi-directional tests, it supports well over 10 tests. They include ABS tests (ABS Version Test, ABS Manual Control Test & ABS Motor Test), Lamp Tests, Actuator Tests, Automated Test, Auto-bleed Test, Service Bleed, Brake Bleed Preparation Test, Idle Up Manual Control Test, Gear Tension Relief Test and Function Test.
These tests are used to determine the efficiency of a car’s system. For example, ABS tests enable the user to send commands to the ABS system and observe how it responds (like it would respond if the command had come from the car’s onboard computer).
The user then uses the information to determine whether the ABS system is functioning as it should or if it needs fixing. Mostly it is mechanics and DIY enthusiasts who use such tests. But even if you are an ordinary car owner it doesn’t hurt to have a scanner that can do them.
  1. worked well on 2015 Passat TDI SEL Premium
I own a 2015 Passat TDI SEL Premium. I started getting the ABS/ESC/Airbag/TPMS lights on a drive to work one morning. At first, the lights would come on the go off for a brief second, then right back on. Eventually the lights became to sporadic to track but at least one was always on (this also knocks out your cruise control). I purchased the Foxwell NT650 with high hopes and the unit did not disappoint. I was able to clean all bogus codes (erroneous voltage readings, false positives, etc.) and focus in on the ones that mattered. The unit narrowed the problem right down to the left rear ABS/speed control sensor. After a quick trip to the local auto parts store, ($54USD for part) and a simple replacement, the car was back to working perfectly. The NT650 is extremely user friendly, powerful, and quick. I look forward to using the unit many times in the future!
  1. easy to use
The screen is easy to read, the buttons are somewhat stiff but still work ok. The included data cable is ridiculously thick and stiff, and could have easily been made thinner, but it is still functional.
Data is stored on an SD card inside the device.
Updates are done by inserting the SD card into your computer and running the updater software that you download from the Foxwell site. It comes with a USB SD card adapter so you don’t need an SD slot in your computer.
  1. a good diagnostic helper
Foxwell NT650 helped me diagnose check engine light that would come on. hooked up the meter and found a misfire on cylinder three, found a bad coil that had been slowly dying.
  1. can read all major systems. satisfied!
I have tested many makes and models from 1998-2015. Vw, Hyundai, Ford, Nissan and it performs well for each application. Update was easy and fast as long as you read and follow the instructions. For a scanner under $300 this has to be top on the list. I previously owned an Autel OBD2 basic engine reader, if you are ready for the next step up then buy this scanner. I was originally thinking of spending $1,300 for a full system and am now realizing you don’t need it to do most of the work. The live data on this device is sufficient to diagnose problems. The Foxwell reads all the major systems you need.
Foxwell NT650 pros and cons:
PROS
  • Supports both gas and diesel cars.
  • The screen is very big, hence you will have no problem in reading codes.
  • It comes with a blow molding case.
  • The wire is big enough, hence the device will not cause you discomfort.
  • Rubbered sleeves and screen protective covering make it long lasting.
  • It is quite light at 2.8 pounds.
CONS
  • Doesn’t read individual injector codes in Ford -150.
  • Cannot be updated on a Mac.
  • The printer doesn’t fit in the tester and comes with a foreign adapter.
  • It cannot provide full system diagnostics.
