Foxwell NT530 Scan Tool can release 2017-2021 Honda Acura MDX SH-AWD electronic park brake(EPB) success. Following I’ll show how to do.

I’ve been trying to find a scan tool that can release an electronic park brake for the Acura, I failed once already with a different brand. But I got this NT530 from Foxwell, fortunately, it does work!
