Review FOXWELL NT630 Plus Diagnostic Scan Tool
The FOXWELL NT630 is a Bidirectional OBDII Scan Tool with advanced features for ABS, SRS, and SAS functions.

The unit will read any standard OBDII error codes along with more advanced options when airbags or ABS brake systems are being troubleshot.

Most scan tools cannot read ABS, SRS, or SAS functions, which makes the FOXWELL NT630 Plus a good unit when fixing airbags, ABS brake systems, and steering angle sensor issues.

For example, when bleeding the brakes in an ABS system, the ABS pump and valves need bleeding along with the brake lines.

The brake lines can be bled manually with a wrench, but the ABS pump and valves need a compatible scan tool to activate them.

All the steps required will be displayed on the scan tool as the process is done.
