Corner–Replacing and Programming Keys by Autel MaxiSYS Elite

This is the first of a two-part article on key programming. Depending on how wordy I get the series could expand into three parts.

Before tooling up for factory programming, if anybody had told me 20% of my workload would be security related, plus replacing and programming keys, I’d have asked what they were smoking. Key replacement and initialization requests seldom came our way at Motor Works. This was fortunate because our answer would have been the one thing you never want to tell a customer, “I’m sorry but we don’t do that here.” Further explanation on the perils of saying no is undoubtedly not necessary.

Maybe it is a function of the famous quotation from the movie “Field of Dreams”; “Build it and they will come.” Indeed, the key replacement and programming requests have come and multiplied.

Security work and key programming, in particular, has several hurdles one must overcome to avoid the dreaded “No” word. These include the need to have:

Factory diagnostic and programming tooling, and/or
Factory “Like” diagnostic and programming tooling, and/or
A dedicated key programming tool
Access to key and security pin numbers
A source for keys and remotes
Support for the occasional problem
Optionally, registration with the National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF), to obtain inclusion in the Locksmith Identification (LSID) Registry as a Vehicle Security Professional (VSP). Man, there ought to be a law about using that many acronyms in the same sentence.

Factory Diagnostic and Programming Tooling

There is not too much to say here. If you’re reading this article, you either already have a collection of factory scan tools or are considering it. Factory tools are the only certain way to turn “No” into “You Betcha we can” when it comes to security work and key replacement/programming. If you want to be a consistent hero, factory tools are the answer.

Factory “Like” Diagnostic and Programming Tooling

Key programming is available in limited degrees in the new breed of factory “like” scanners now available. Hearing about the strong capabilities of the Autel line of scanners, I recently consulted Louie Nelson, President of Advanced Training Systems, Inc. and Carquest Technical Institute trainer since 1999. Authors note: I have trained personally under Louie’s steady hand, and consider him an automotive mentor, friend and one of the brightest minds in the automotive industry today.

Louie has personal experience with the Autel Scanner, using it to programming keys for Fords, Hondas, and Nissans. He remarks that the Honda programming abilities of the Autel tool are amazingly faster than the factory Honda equipment.

Louie also wants me to pass on the tin foil “Top Hat” trick for getting cars with new ignition switches started and moved to where programming can take place. This will come next month.
Those readers interested in the many abilities of the Autel scanners can call the AE Tools staff for an enthusiastic and knowledgeable discussion…

Autel MaxiSys MS906 work function better than DS708

As a DIY or an auto technician or repair shop owner it is expected you make wise and guided decisions of which specialized automotive diagnostic and ECU programming tool to settle for.

As I went through the good, the bad and the ugly sides of Autel MaxiSYS ms906 my honest conclusion is that it is best for a mechanic who does not have lots of experience yet in car diagnosing.

MaxiSYS MS906 is an upgrade of MaxiDAS DS708 with added functionalities like android WiFi touch screen, immobilizer key coding, tablet type tool, data logging, read & clear fault codes, diagnose, service, repair, provide all OEM functions and more.  Let’s take a look at those unique features that make ms906 superior to other brands of automotive diagnostic scanners in it’s class.

15-1

Capabilities

This product is a modern automotive Diagnostic Analysis System. Moreover, it has been labeled as the next generation edition of the widely successful DS708. One main advantage is its capability to scan a broad range of automotive related problems.

This range covers for over 80 car manufacturing companies across the globe. Many distinct and unique manufacturers such as Audi, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Chevrolet, Ford as well as Dodge are all included.

Although Autel MS906 has 2 other versions; MS906BT AND MS906TS, yet it gives the user an opportunity to do a whole lot more than scanning car problems.

For example, this diagnostic scan tool is capable of reprogramming keys if you are in possession of the key code from the particular dealer of a vehicle. It is also capable of resetting many systems from vehicle check engine light to ABS.

I reviewed different types of vehicle Autel Diagnostic; I went through all the pros and cons of each and every one of these tools. I strongly recommend, for small garage owners or beginner automotive technician on a budget the Autel Maxisys ms906.

To summerize this diag gives the technician an opportunity to reprogram selected ECU settings for customer’s automobile. However, the latter feature is solely available for some particular types of models.

Autel Maxisys Elite vs Autel Maxisys MS908P

To compare this product with its rival brands, let’s take an example of Autel Maxisys Pro MS908p which offers ECU coding, programming, and extensive coverage. But, a few users have complained that it loses communication with the Audi and VW car models.

Next, if you select an option, it will display — your vehicle doesn’t support this function. This scan tool also provides frequent connection errors. Thus, you will eventually have an utterly disappointing and frustrating experience.

However, the main difference between the Autel Maxisys is the CPU. The CPU of the Autel Maxisys Elite is NVIDIA Tegra Quad-Core Processor 1.8GHz. While The Autel Maxisys Pro ME908p has the Samsung Exynos Quad-Core Processor 1.4GHz.

Thus, if you are looking for a reliable automotive scanner that’s worth your investment, then do not hesitate to buy Autel Maxisys Elite. This brilliant tool will always offer you a fast and excellent performance. But Autel Maxisys Pro MS908P is also a great choice for you if you don’t care much about the speed.

Pros of Autel Maxisys MS908P

Cons of Autel Maxisys MS908P

The Professional Diagnostic Tool is not suitable for the low-end mechanics as the operational procedures are quite complicated. It mainly targets professionals in Auto-repairing and Garage Shops.
It is a high-end product and is not affordable to everyone who would want to use.
