This professional automotive multi-tool (Autel Maxi IM608) is one of the most advanced tools available on the market with outstanding functions for diagnostics, testing, and programming of your car’s systems.


Car keys: This product has tools that combine the most powerful functions for working with engine immobilizer (automotive anti-theft system), transponder keys / smart keys programming, and read, write, and identify the MCU and/or EEPROM chip.


Scanner: The scanner part is not just a scanner, but a very powerful tool equipped with factory-level diagnostics and advanced service functions, like actuation and testing of isolated components, like relays, fans, solenoids, etc., all done through the diagnostic OBD port in your car.



Extras: Also included, is the XP400 key programmer and the J2534 pass-thru MaxiFlash JVCI ECM / ECU Reprogrammer.



Diagnostics: Read (scan) and clear fault codes (check engine light) and shows a short description of the fault codes read. Besides accessing the information and the various sensors of the engine controller (ECM), it can also retrieve information on the and view live, real-time data on the fly from various other control systems, like the transmission control module (TCM), the antilock brake system (ABS), and the airbag system (SRS).


Helps with part replacements: It has coding functions that allow you to change vehicle parts that need to be coded, like injectors, the ABS module, the starters, .etc.


Engine programming: It can flash/reprogram / update and code the engine controller (ECM) online through the J2534 pass-through device (included).

What other buyers are saying:


“Very easy to use. The immobilizer functions of this product are amazing. If you’re looking for a good overall key programmer for most complicated keys, Autel IM608 definitely a good choice.”


“Great scanner and easy to use. This was well worth the investment. It is equipped with XP400 key programmer and a J2534 pass-thru ECU flasher to provide coverage of the immobilizer systems and programming functions.”


“Money well spent. I have used this tool over almost a week now. I love it. This tool provides all the info you need to perform any programming tasks. I was able to program a key to a 2005 Mini Cooper on my first try. I love both the immo app and the diagnostic app and how it comes along with it.”


“Works great. It is much faster than all my other tools.”


“I purchased this scanner to diagnostic all my cars that I get from salvage auctions and most of the time those cars come without keys. This scanner is like Magíc as I don’t even need keys to turn on the car. The best purchase I have ever made.”


“Works great! I have many other scan tools and I like this better than the other ones for which I have paid as much as $10k. This one does so much more for a lot less money.”


“Wonderful and powerful diagnostic and programming tool. Did a 2013 C230 all key lost in 30 minutes thru OBD2.”


“I use this device to program keys for which it is working perfectly.”


“It has currently helped me with GM and Ford key programming and Chrysler diagnostics. I am even starting to look into working on the European line. I feel I am just scratching the surface of what this Autel is capable of accomplishing.”


“It does BMW CAS keys with no issue.”
