Autel MaxiCom MK908p feedback: program ECU /key works

I’m extremely impressed with this Autel MaxiCom MK908p scan tool after a few weeks of use. The interface is intuitive and navigation is quite easy. The touchscreen is incredibly the largest I’ve ever purchased and is very responsive. I can scroll without having to resort to pushing buttons. The layout of PIDs and graphing capabilities are amazing. The PID descriptions are actually understandable. I have not seen a slew of cryptic abbreviations for any of the PIDs.


I’ve been really happy with the bi-directional capabilities. I’ve used it mostly on Fords, however, I believe Autel MK908P hits the ball out of the park and it will have useful by-directional controls for all makes.

It’s super easy to update, more like using an Android tablet, one-click update via Wi-Fi is enough to get the latest version of diagnostic software with more vehicle coverage and bug fixes.


Came with a J2534 ECU programming device, very professional for BMW and Benz. Capable of replacing the existing software in the ECU, programming new ECUs and fixing the software-controlled drivability issues. An advanced ECU diagnostic tool.


And it allows you to do a whole lot more than scan the car and diagnose problems. For instance, you can reprogram keys as long as you get the key code. It is also able to reset many systems, from check engine light to ABS. Should you want to reprogram certain ECU settings, you are able to do so; however, this feature is only available for certain models. Above all, I guess these are the reasons why it claims to be a perfect scan tool for auto shops and professional technicians.


Out of the Snapon , Mac, and Matco scan tools I have, this one is by far the most versatile and complete.


Autel MaxiCom MK908P is the best one after MaxiSYS Elite, MaxiSYS MS908P, MaxiSYS MS908, it has advanced configuration (hexa-core Processor, 64GB memory, 10.1M LCD etc) as well as full-system full-brand diagnosis, ECU programming /coding etc.
