The Foxwell NT530 is the successor to the hugely popular NT520 Pro and NT510 Pro, but is based upon a new platform for faster performance and easier updates. It is a low-cost handheld scan tool that offers comprehensive coverage for a single car manufacturer - ideal for specialist garages and car enthusiasts.
Designed for Vauxhall and Opel cars from around 1997 onwards (models with a 16-pin OBD-II type diagnostic
socket), this scan tool allows the user
to read and clear the Diagnostic Trouble Codes of all electronically controlled systems, and to reset oil and service
lights, plus many more advanced features such as bi-directional component actuations and module coding - usually only
seen in high-end professional tools such as the GT90.
This scan tool will also read and erase engine fault codes and show live engine data on EOBD compliant cars (nearly
all 2001+ petrol cars and 2004+ diesel cars, from any car manufacturer).

Are you confused by the different features and coverage of the Foxwell tools?
If so, please click here to go to our Foxwell Tool Chooser.
This is a page where you simply select the region of car manufacturers you want to cover (e.g. Europe, Asia), and we'll show you the suitable tools and what each tool offers.
NT530 scan tools come with free 'lifetime' software updates! (All the time the tool is manufactured or supported, updates will be free).
To apply software updates to the tool you will need a Windows PC/Laptop and an internet connection.
To register the tool you will also need access to your email account.
If we have sufficient time between your order being placed and being shipped, we will usually install the latest
available updates for you on the day the order is shipped.
Registration part 1 - Create an account
You firstly need to create an account with Foxwell and register your tool.
This must be done through the FoxAssist update software, which can be downloaded for free from the Foxwell UK website.
Just select your tool from the list on the Foxwell UK
Updates page and follow the instructions to download the latest version of FoxAssist.
The file downloaded will be a compressed zip file. Open that file and run the installer inside it. Please note: the installer will also install a Microsoft Visual C++ runtime - this is required for the software to
run. It may require a Windows restart after installation before first use.
Once installed (following a Windows restart if required), open the FoxAssist software, and click the Register button.
Then on the registration form:
Fill in your email address and your choice of password.
Then press the 'Send Code' button, and wait for a confirmation message.
This will immediately email you a verification code (valid for 10 minutes) to confirm the email address is correct.
** Do NOT press the Send Code button more than once, as each press generates a new code, invalidating the previous one - it
may take up to 10 seconds for the confirmation message to appear **
Check your email for that code, enter it, then click the Free Registration button to complete registration.
Once the details are accepted you will be returned to the main screen.
Enter your email address and password, then click 'Sign In'.
Registration part 2 - Add your tool to the account
Connect the tool to your PC using the supplied USB cable.
Once the Main Menu has loaded, select the 'Update' option on the tool.
The tool will enter update mode, and Windows should now see it as a 'USB Drive'.
In the FoxAssist software on the PC, the tool's serial number should now have been detected and will be displayed
in the top-right corner.
Select the 'Activation' tab on the left side.
The tool's serial number should be displayed at the top of the page, next to an 'Activation' button.
Press the Activation button to activate the tool and register it to your account.
A 'successful activation' confirmation message should be displayed, then the tool's serial number will move to
the 'Activated' section.
Now close the FoxAssist software.
Updating your tool
To update your tool, connect it via the USB cable and select the 'Update' mode as before.
Once Windows has detected the SD card drive, run the FoxAssist software and login again.
The software should automatically detect the tool and show you a list of installed software.
Any available updates will already be ticked (if none can be ticked, you are up to date!)
Click the Upgrade button to download and install available updates.
When all updates are installed, close FoxAssist, then press the 'Enter' button on the tool to return to the Main Menu.
You can now disconnect the USB cable.
