XP400 Key & Chip Programmer:
The Key Programmer XP400 is specially designed to read transponder data (including Mercedes Benz infrared smart key), clone and generate exclusive keys, read/write on-board EEPROM data, and read/write Free scale 9S12 MCUs. By working with diagnostic tool or PC that are both loaded with programmer software, the XP400 can read/write transponder data quickly and accurately. It is a reliable key and chip programming tool that covers most of the aftermarket keys and fobs as well as MCU & EEPROM chips:
- MCU / EEPROM Chips Read / Write
- ECU Read / Write
- MC9S12 Encryption Chip Read / Write
- Key Read / Write
- Mercedes Infrared Key Read / Write
- Remote Frequency Detect
- IC Card Read / Write
And other key related functions.
The Coding function is used to re-flash the vehicle control modules, it allows you to update the computer software on the vehicle to the latest version, as well as to reprogram adaptive data for certain components after making repairs or replacements, providing ways for the issues of Drivability, Fuel Efficiency, Power Loss, Fault Codes, Durability of Mechanical Parts.
The process of sending and retrieving information from a vehicle control module with a device is known as Actuation test or bi-directional control. The main aim of the actuation test function is to request the control module to perform a specific function including system tests, actuator tests, functional tests, inspection tests, reprogramming or reinitialization, thus saving diagnostic time.
Eg: You connect a fuel pressure gauge, cycled the key and cranked the engine but you couldn’t figure out anything regarding the fuel pressure. With the actuation test function of this diagnostic tool, you can send a fuel pump command on instruction and see the proper fuel pressure, figuring out if there is a problem with the fuel pump circuit or pump.
Simply accessing the diagnostic modes via AutoVin or Control Unit, and you're able to perform diagnosis over all the systems on the vehicle's ECU in order to locate fault systems and retrieve DTCs.
ECU Information -provides the retrieved ECU information in detail.
Read Codes -displays detailed information of DTC records retrieved from the vehicle control module.
Erase Codes -erases DTC records and other data from the ECM.
Live Data -retrieves and displays live data and parameters from the vehicle's ECU.
Active Test -provides specific subsystem and component tests.

Establish Vehicle Communication for Powerful IMMO Operations
The IMMO operations require connecting the MaxiIM IM608 tablet to the test vehicle through the MaxiFlash using the main cable and the included USB cable (2m). To establish proper vehicle communication to the tablet, you need to perform the following steps:
1. Connect the MaxiFlash to the vehicle’s DLC for both communication and power source.
2. Connect the MaxiFlash to the tablet via BT pairing, or USB connection.
BT pairing is recommended as the first choice for the communication between the tablet and the J2534 ECU Reprogrammer MaxiFlash JVCI. The working range for BT communication is about 210 feet (70 m); this means you can perform key programming and vehicle diagnosis freely around the workshop with greater convenience.
If you use more than one MaxiFlash to connect to the test vehicles when customers are many, you can perform key programming and vehicle diagnosis on various vehicles conveniently, by pairing the tablet separately to each of the MaxiFlash connected to the different test vehicles, via BT, without the need to repeat the plugging and unplugging procedure, which is unavoidable through traditional wired connection, thus saves you more time and provides more efficiency.

Autel IM608 Review:
Review 1: I have performed an all keys lost function on an older Honda Accord with the key programmer. Changed the cylinder and the IM608 took care of it with no issues when having to program the new keys.
Review 2: Autel IM608 is able to communicate with Chrysler 200 well and configure the Ecu and the immo data. I bought it generally for its programming and immo functions, it works great on customers' cars. It's complete service functions are helpful for me.
Review 3: I purchased this scanner to diagnostic all my car the I get from salvage auctions and most of the time this car comes without keys and this scanner is like Magíc I don’t even need keys to turn on the car, best purchase I have ever made.
Review 4: I used it to erase all keys to remove lost keys and reprogram keys I had on 2009 F-150, 2006 Mazda RX8 and 2005 Acura TL. For both Mazda and Ford, you need 2 keys minimum, I had to contact tech support because I didn't have 2 keys and they helped me through the entire process on how to get a second chip from another key I had to get it all working. Great support and product! Highly recommend it!
Review 5: 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 all of the programming tasks. I was able to program a key to a 2005 Mini Cooper on my first try. I love how the diagnostic app comes along with it. I’ve been using a Autel MaxiSys for the past two years. I love that i can have best of both worlds. Both the immo application and the diagnostic application.
Review 6: Great all-around tool! To do Toyota keys you'll need the APB112 and the G-Box helps with the Mercedes keys... Scan tool wise it is equivalent to the MS908S. I haven't gotten into heavy in-depth work with it yet but so far, it's been up to the task.
Review 7: I purchased this Autel IM608 a month ago. I detected several cars in my workshop with this key programmer. It was the first thing I did when I got it to make sure it was working well. Autel IM608 really read the IR signals and the actual transponder data. Yesterday I run a Mercedes IR key programming with this autel scanner on Mercedes r320, 2007. I used the blank keys: 315 and 433 keys. It took me about 10 minutes to get it done. Hopefully, this week I’ll get chances to do more key programming or IMMO for different cars.
Autel IM608 FAQ:
Q1: Does the IM608 do the TPMS activation or do i need a TPMS Tool (like MaxiTPMS TS408)? Thanks in advance
A1: You need the ts601. its a dedicated TPMS device. The im608 doesnt have the software or hardware to test and code the tpms sensors
Q2: is key programming the only thing people use this amazing tool for. does so much more than keys. would like more on coding, diagnostics for the im608
A2: The diagnostic side is the same as the Elite ( excluding the benz and bmw programming) You can write VIN numbers and used modules, Extract brake calipers on the electronic brakes, Reset DPF lights, Do some milage correction, Code injectors, tailgatelights , adas calibrations, etc.
Q3: Does the im608 do any pcm programing through the j2534 or does it just use the j2534 for key and imobilizer programing?
A3: yes you can use the j2534 to program PCM ( you need an OEM subscription and a laptop to do this) You can do key coding directly from the scanner. You dont need an OEM subscription
Q4: Im508 hyundai 2016 sonata smartkey pin code retrieval or only IM608 only?
A4: Either one should do it
Q5: Does this device require its own battery? I mean would you have to replace batteries in it?
