Has anybody used this scanner with the Maserati software, and can it shut off the "wrench" indicator?

I wonder if it would clear an Air Bag code? I disconnected mine to install a set of paddle shifters, and now the air bag light is on.... :-(

I called our local import specialist shop, and asked if they would clear the air bag code - they said I'd have to leave the car with them for the day, and that it's not a simple operation (????????). My gut tells me all they are thinking about is $$$$.

Got my 520 today, ordered for Maserati but it came as generic OBD. I have a MacBook, you can’t even register the product without using PC windows. Downloaded “Parallel” for Mac (on trial) and was finally able to register and with some effort, download the Maserati software to the NT520.

It was worth the effort, I had been getting a suspension warning (yellow shock), the car road fine and my Indy said the shocks were fine. The NT520 scan showed the a right front sensor error. That I can fix or replace.

unsure on that one but similar priced OBDSTAR X-200 did succesfully clear the wrench on my 2011 QP
I second the OBDSTAR X-200. I purchased it from Amazon and out of the box, I was able to clear the stupid wrench symbol and rest my maintenance timer.

I was hoping that the Foxwell would work so that I could use it on my DB9 (with AM software) and the Mas with its software. I know that the Foxwell will work with the DB9 but was unsure about the Mas. Ergo my OP post here asking if anyone has successfully used the Foxwell on the Mas.

It's a great scanner for the cost but unless you can interpret the codes some of which are of course in Italiano it's of little use, it also threw up a number of false positive codes that were not valid errors.

Does anyone know if any of these scanners (besides SD2/3) will clear the SRS airbag light? I installed a new airbag ECU in my 2002 Spyder and looking for ways to reset the light without a dealer/independent...

So it sounds like you've used the Foxwell with the Mas software; if so, can you reset that damn wrench light?

Hi ngknick....I recently installed paddle shifters, disconnected the air bag but left the battery hooked up - stupid me. As a result I now get the air bag light and message display. I did look at the OBDSTAR X-200 but found out that it will NOT reset this code.

Yes it has an option to reset SRS fault codes.

It will work out the box if you register the scanner you will then get periodic software updates you can download.

As I pointed out earlier in this thread, I bought my Foxwell NT520 “for Maserati” directly from their online factory outlet in China. However, when it arrived it did not have the Maserati function installed. You will need to read the instructions carefully and register the reader, then download the Maserati software using Windows! That done it reads Maserati codes. Yes, some are in Italian and I have yet to find a source list but most can be sorted out, if needed with some help from the forum.

Can you just read and erase codes with Foxwell 520, or can you maybe set some parameters.
I would like to set clutch PIS (KISS) point - would that be possible with this Foxwell?

Have you been able to turn off the wrench with the Foxwell? I know that Nivram13 said he will (future tense) turn off the wrench but the future is indefinite.

My GT dose not have any warnings or maintenance lights. It did have the yellow shock light that comes on in sport with some aggressive driving but disappears on shutdown. The event code, however, was stored, showing a sensor issue. Out of curiosity I went out to the garage and the NT520 permanently cleared the code.

That said, my $20 Carista dongle with iPhone app cleared my Audi maintenance light so I am assuming the $160 Foxwell will too.
