a good code reader for parking sensor faults

hi all so i have had my x5 for little over 3 years and in that time its pretty much always had a pdc fault , but now i have had enough and wont to fix it once and for all i do have a snap on code reader but it seems to not show any faults with the pdc but has proved useful on other faults , i have checked the sensors for the clicking noise replaced the ones which where not clicking repaired some broken wiring but still the fault is there, all i seem to get is different types of bleeping noises when i select reverse , so i am kind of wondering if there's a code reader out there which is good for fault finding pdc faults or do i just replace bits and hope for the best all help much appreciated on this one.

Probably INPA The user was able to find specifically which sensor was the problem. Modules to act up and fail. I'm waiting to send a GMIII out for repairs. So much doesn't work it's a little annoying. It will soon all work again.

Sorry, I don't have any INPA experience. I'm learning all my Foxwell NT520 Pro can do.

I know that DIS 57 works very well for PDC info and I imagine INPA would too. If you replaced the sensors with cheap ones that is going to haunt you.

Foxwell NT-510 or NT-520 slow but easy to use and it shows which parking sensor is bad and will reset faults

should i stick with the 510 or 520 as i see now these have been supersede , or do these give a good level of reading for the rest of the vehicle tried and tested so to speak.

Stick with the 510 or the 520 as the 530 doesn't seem to talk to every module.

I have kept the NT-510 in the X5 24/7 and it shows no issues with being in a car that the outside air temp is 52c with the occasional spike to 60c and dusty...

DIS (and maybe INPA?) will give you the live reading of distance in centimeters each sensor is seeing.
