Anyone used a Foxwell Scanner ? Ive aNT644 Pro.

Ive always had one kicking about to do the EML engine dash light to find basic errors. But was asked to help clear a DPF flashing light on a family members Mazda5.....

Took it up the road, ragged in 3rd gear 4000rpm at 60mph for 5 miles so well warm and ready to go, plugged in the scanner and went through the options to force a DPF clean.. and get this all the time

Emailed Foxwell Tech, but after a week still nothing.

The mazda revved to 2000 and then dropped to idle, then error pinged up on the screen.

There was a 'wire' trick on youtube for the Mazda's but that doesnt work either.

Any clues??

A saab 93 i had years ago took about 20 mins revving around 3000 and the DPF threw soot out good and propper !

It’s a post to ask if anyone has used any pro OBD2 scanners and recommends
any particular brands. They are all mainly China made so hopefully we would all be using the same stuff ??

I use a Foxwell NT301. Thought I'd only use it once or twice, but I was wrong. Having your own scanner is so convenient.

I use an Autel MX808 MaxiCheck which I picked up for $365 about 15 months ago. It works with any passenger car or truck with an OBD II port, but for another $99, you can get the OBD I kit which has the connectors for a number of manufacturers OBD I diagnostic ports. MK808 is the scan tool with the OBD I kit. It's pretty nice! It's a lot quicker than my former boss's X431 Launch diagnostic tool and his older OTC Genesys tool. It does an all system code scan, can monitor/graph/read live datastream info, read freeze frame data, can be used to relearn throttle bodies and register TPMS sensor, relearn idle air volume, relearn steering position and a bunch of other stuff. It can update wirelessly and the updates after the first years are reasonably priced. Autel has a number of tools, both less and more expensive. This one was perfect for me and for what I do at home.
