      I have the foxwell nt510 elite preloaded with mercedes software.

      It's worked great for bi directional control.

      I went with the FOXWELL.

      I also went with FOXWELL. After several months of research, I selected the NT510 Elite for Mercedes based on its bi-directional capabilities and cost (<$150). Would have like to go with the ThinkTool Pros or Topdon tools, but they were too expensive for my one-off use. The NT510's full scan seems very comprehensive, and the tool helped me solve/reset several displayed faults due to batteries that I've replaced over the years. I've since added the VAG (Volkswagen/Audi/Porche) vehicle package and am just as satisfied with the capabilities contained within this application.

      What radiator cable?????????????????

      You must own your own scanner.

      Sorry I meant the radiator fan power cable for the radiator fan so that it's not engaging and turning on. I disconnected it last night so that my battery does not get drained. What I noticed was that since the fan was spinning on high at idle it was draining my battery.

      Here is the scanner that I have. Foxwell Scanner NT510

      Mrboca,

      I have the Foxwell NT510 scanner which has the Mercedez SW installed https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BQH1S5X/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. I figured out what my problem might be I am using a straight OBD to 38-pin cable which is only passive. Looks like I need a special 38-pin cable to do the actual scan looking at getting it from Foxwell Foxwell Benz 38 pin and Extension Cable for Foxwell NT510 NT520 PRO Multi-System Scannerbut might be 2 weeks for delivery.

      BTW, last week I did unplug the TCU to check for ATF build up, but I never disengaged the battery before doing so would this cause the TCU needing to be reset?

      Also to answer your other question YES the scanner DOES pick up other module stats (ECM, A/C, SRS, ABS, and can view live data like coolant temp. etc...)

      I did notice the RPM live data was fluctuating which correlates to the RPN gauge being flaky.

      This is a learning curve for me so appreciate your feedback.


      Hello:)

      What Foxwell scanner did you use and what adapter did you use to connect to the 38 pin connector? Does the scanner pick up ANY OTHER module at all (ECM, SRS, ABS etc)?


      Make sure that the Transmission module is powered when the ignition key is in the run (position 2) location. It is the red/yellow colored wire that comes out of the K40 relay.
