Check Engine Light on? Get the answer yourself by using the Foxwell OBDII Scanner

Whether you're a general DIY'er and love troubleshooting your vehicles, or you possess professional-like skills in repairing your family or friend's cars, then owning a Foxwell ET2709 OBDII code reader can help you save money and time, helping you diagnose what faults your check engine light is throwing codes for. It stops the anxiety, the endless and expensive lengths of changing multiple parts in your car, then finding it still hasn't fixed the root cause problem.

The OBDII standard provides lists of standardised DTC error codes from their database. DTC codes are 4 digits, preceded by P powertrain, B body, C chassis and U network. The Foxwell ET2709 reader has the ability to read (P) powertraincodes, with the added functionality that enables OBDII codes to be cleared once the repair has been completed and the ability to turn off the check engine light.

Some additional features of the ET2709 include

  • Combined OBDII code reader & 12V automotive battery tester in one convenient tool
  • Read & erase engine fault codes
  • Compatible with most 2006 & newer cars and SUVs
  • View live engine data
  • Test 12V Regular and Enhanced flooded, AGM flat plate, AGM spiral and Gel batteries, including stop / start batteries.

The Foxwell ET2709 is compatible with the most common of OBDII compliant Australian cars which include Ford, Holden, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Toyota and will work across petrol and diesel operated cars and SUV's. Most cars since 2006 are OBDII compliant but best to check your owners manual first.

All code readers only work on OBDII compliant cars. If your car is an earlier (non OBDII compliant) model, this code reader will not work on your vehicle. To scan earlier vehicles you will need a scan tool such as the ET2530.

How do you use the OBDII scanner?

OBD2 devices are relatively simple to use. Whilst different models carry different functionality, the general process and usage of an OBD2 scanner is quite consistent.

  • Ensure that your car is OBDII compliant. The connector is generally located underneath your steering wheel or car's control panel.
  • Turn the ignition on (Engine off). Take the Foxwell ET2709 OBD2 scanner and plug it into the OBD2 port under the dash. The scanner will turn on from the car's power source once it is inserted into the OBD2 port.
  • Once the scanner is connected then turn your car on and wait for the OBDII scanner to boot up. This will be done automatically. If not, press the power button to initialise.
  • When the scanner is on and ready, the ET2709 will automatically pick up the specific data from your vehicle's VIN identifier.
  • Once this has been completed, the scanner will begin to analyse and read your vehicles diagnostic system.
  • After scanning the systems of your vehicle, the OBD2 scanner will then provide any codes the scanner has found. Take note of these codes and use the manual to check these codes to get a full understanding of what they refer to and what they mean.
  • Once you have found and fixed your problem, then you can go ahead and clear the code.
