Foxwell NT510 BMW Battery Registration

In this video, you will learn how to use Foxwell scanner to perform BMW battery registration and coding. The scanner that we are using is Foxwell NT510, but it has the BMW software loaded on the memory. 

What we used


Note that as of December 2018 Foxwell NT510 is able to register a new BMW battery. It is not able to code a battery that has different specs or is a different type. It is possible that future updates to Foxwell NT510 will allow battery coding as well. 

  1. Plug your BMW scan tool into the OBD2 port under the dashboard. In this case, we are using Foxwell for BMW, but you can use some other scan tools for BMW
  2. Turn ignition on, the key to position II. Do not start your car. foxwell nt510 bmw
