Autel MS908P J2534 Programming Reviews

Confirmed to do programming with J2534 module

the Autel Maxisys Pro MS908P has the programming module (j2354 passthrou) without it it will not program only code reader

we had one on test for a week,

its ok but things like programming a vin into a bsi, it will only do with a new unit ie no s/hand swaps

It does a lot of diag and live data ok

its all chinglish so you have to wade through it to figure out and then you have to select the wrong car sometimes

eg 2014 308cc had to go in aa a 2010 207cc to access roof

2010 focus 1.6tdci had to go in as a 2008 1.6 tddi (not that ford ever made one!)

we will probably buy it, but the elite version for the larger screen and programming features, plus 2 years updates free

the updates are stupid money, most people buy a new one run it 6 months past its update then sell it and buy another, its cheaper than buying the updates!!!

If you have read a post by anyone on this forum and it helped

please leave thanks and reputation, the two buttons below it takes only 1 second

its especially important to new users to recieve and give Thanks James

Awesome scanner!! Saved me $$$$ already!

Just letting you guys know that I’m a Master Technician and shop owner for over 15 years. The most sophisticated scanner I own is the 2009 ver. of the Snapon Modis which is a great scanner but it became obsolete. With the Maxisys I was a little skeptical with it…cause i have a thing with Chinese made products…but after researching and viewing videos on this scanner…I was sold with it’s functions. When I received it let me tell you…I am impressed as soon as I opened the box. The first thing I like the weight and size of it. It’s light and very comfortable moving around especially that it’s bluetooth…wow done with cables! Next I read people reviewing about disappointments on the updating…it was not as long as they say…I’m connected to cable modem and the update took just 1hr 1/2 and in the afternoon. I did it Ethernet instead if Wifi to make it faster. So I believe those people had connectivity issues. Now the best part, the speed of this thing…incredible. Wow the booting up, the ease of touch screen…it feels like navigating through my Samsung S6. I’ve had this for a week…it it already saved me money. I had a 2016 LandRover RangeRover that needed a rear brake repair…when it came time for the repair, I had no knowledge it had electronic parking brake…so I almost thought I was going to lose that job till I checked to see If the Maxisys had the electronic brake release feature…and shocking it did!! I was so happy! Next job I had was a 2009 Hyundai Sonata 4cyl, complaint was it had a 2-1 rough downshift…found there’s a recall that needed to be reprogrammed on these symptoms…guess what…this thing has a Transmission ECU reset feature…and it worked! Unbelievable! I’m very happy with this and also glad I didn’t go as far as investing in Snapon or Matco products. It’s good enough for me!

Airmatic calibration and it still had a lot of other useful features( it was able to access all of the …

I am more than impressed with what this little tool can do for the price. I was able to do variant coding on a W212 Mercedes, Airmatic calibration and it still had a lot of other useful features( it was able to access all of the 46 modules installed on the Merc).

I also used it on a BMW, Toyota Sienna and a Ford Ranger truck and it was able to access all of the modules there as well, perform live tests, actuations, adaptations ( I saw the option to perform shift adaptations on the Mercedes but I haven’t tried it yet) and resetting to default values where applicable.
One cool thing I like about it is the ability to perform graphing ( to a limited extent – not oscilloscope detail but still on par with equivalent but more expensive tools on the market like SnapOn or Matco).

The not so great parts would be the other, non diagnostic related functions like:
1) Email sharing of the diagnostic files ( they have an embedded app but it doesn’t work with yahoo or gmail servers – I got around it by downloading the yahoo app and using that one to send files to my computer)
2)The tutorial section ( it’s pretty much non existent and for the most part doesn’t even connect to the Autel servers)
3) The complete lack of wiring diagrams and any sort of schematics.

Overall this is a great tool to have around for working on your car, pre purchase inspections and helping out friends. It’s biggest plus in my opinion is it’s price, none of the competitors can even get close to it price wise.
Keep in mind that you have to update frequently to be able to work with modules in newer vehicles. Out of the box it has a 1 year free subscription included, after that if you want to update it you have to pay around 600$ per year.

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.

This Autel Maxisys Pro MS908P offers ECU coding, programming, and extensive coverage.

But, a few users have complained that it loses communication with the Audi and VW car models.

In addition, 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.

5-1
While The Autel Maxisys Pro MS908p has the Samsung Exynos Quad-Core Processor 1.4GHz.

Option to purchase cheaper update of a MS908

witsend:
I’ve had my Maxi Sys Pro for close to 2 months and can’t foresee having to access Autel’s server to download J2534 files very often to  program  BMWs, Mercedes , and VW cars too often. I think the folk like myself might be more inclined to update a Maxi Sys Pro if we could update cheaper as a regular Maxi Sys and understand that we would no longer be able to access  the J2534 programming files off Autel Server for BMW, Mercedes,  and VW but still do SCI coding and update the car software as a regular Maxisys MS908P.

Jim:
I too would like to purchase Autel Diagnostic Tool 908 only with maybe option to purchase 2day access if need arises。Sub finished aug 2016 and no plans to renew at 1500$+cnd. How are you enjoying the software, are you somewhat updated or updating software regularly

witsend:
I just happened to find a very good deal on a slightly used MS908 P. that has most of the update period remaining. Got a copy of the sale invoice and a bill of sale,but  didn’t even bother to re register thing  in my name yet. Besides needing coverage for newer cars I Basically got it so I could have a J2534 if I ever need to purchase an OE  sub and flash something off my laptop, because just a  Drew tech J2534 alone would cost close to what I paid for this MS908P used. I Haven’t programmed keys or replaced a PCM or programmable module yet with it so far.

The Obd2 scan tool results sometimes don’t take (on Fords especially) Not Started  won’t save the codes, or at least not immediately to Shop manager work history. Saves the car description and Vin immediately though but not the auto scan  codes. I put a 32 GB micro SD card in the unit slot and now some  BMW files from an update were automatically put to the external SD card, so now I assume  the external SD card has to stay in it as permanent expanded storage space. Any hope of copying the entire scan folder to save as a backup on my PC would have to be attempted with a USB thumb drive. Over all it scans cars fine and save most VIN and cars successfully in Work History , but I haven’t bothered entering customer information, mileage , plate #s etc yet because it’s not a sure thing that the autoscan codes will be stored for the vehicle. Maxi Fix don’t seem to work right that I can tell. I like that I can read my email and use on internet. Blue tooth range of VCI is good, the WIFI range is not as good.
