This post is shared by one of my friend about Use Foxwell NT510 diagnose on 04 BMW 3 series E46 325xi

 

Car model and year:

2004 BMW 3 series E46 325xi_M54_SAL USA_LHD

with miles 190K on the dashboard.

 

I want a diagnostic scanner to do:

I wanted to be able to diagnose any potential issues on the fly and do as many DIY fixes myself as possible.

I’m not the type of person looking for a tool in order to code or dive into the vehicle ECU.

 

This diagnostic scanner to use:

Handheld Foxwell NT510 multi-system scanner (No need additional computer)

The price point for this item was just right $179 free shipping and according to foxwellshop.com, I am allowed to add manufacturers to the device in the near future (i.e.; AU FORD, BMW, Chrysler, Fiat, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Holden, Land Rover, OPEL, Toyota and VAG) and the price is only $70 for each manufacture.

 

Step – by -step procedure:

At begining, I plugged into the OBDII port (The unit will power-up as soon as it’s plugged in) then the start-up screen show as below, I got four options:

1) OBDII

2) Manufacturer Specific

3) Setup or Settings

4) Playback for previously saved data

The device is handheld so easy to use and set-up is pretty self explanatory. I use the arrow buttons and enter/back buttons to cycle through the scanner.

Select the OBDII function, it’ll immediately have an auto-scan of your vehicle for any DTC. As you can see below, my scan came back with no codes found.

If you select the vehicle specific option, you will cycle though a handful of menus until you come to your correct make & model, e.g BMW 3 series E46, 325xi_M54_SAL, version: USA_LHD, Model year:2003-09
