Autel MaxiIM IM508 Reviews & FAQs

In this post, some customer reviews and frequently asked questions about Autel MaxiIM IM508 will be shared.

First of all, let’s check some reviews about Autel MaxiIM IM508.

Review 1: Works as Advertised! Excellent Product!
Excellent diagnostic scanner! Autel sales and support have been very responsive and very helpful with all of my questions and concerns.
I was successfully able to perform an “all keys lost” and program new replacement keys for my 2007 Honda S2000. My main immobilizer programmer did not work on this vehicle, stating “ECU Not Found,” but the IM508 was able to go online with the vehicle’s computer and programmed the keys. Worked like a champ!
Next, I was able to use it on my 2009 Honda Civic EX-L Couple to reset the nuisance/non-existent ABS/VSA fault codes that my Bluetooth scanner and the Torque app couldn’t clear/reset. Now I have ABS and VSA again after replacing one of my wheel speed sensors!
I also used the same ABS fault reset on a 2012 Honda CR-Z with a “low battery voltage” ABS code when the non-hybrid battery died. The dealer was going to charge my sister $150+ just to diagnose the system when all that was needed was a new battery and a code reset! Everything works properly now.
The only thing I wish this unit had was the ability to have Bluetooth wireless connectivity to the OBD II port of the vehicle like some of the more expensive scanners have, or to be able to pair my existing OBDLink MX+ with the tablet. But other than that, excellent scanner and programmer!

Review 2: Easy to use
It’s being an excellent scanner, easy to use;
If you want more options I would recommend you to get the im608 that comes with the programmer for European cars.
Since I bought the scanner, it’s being so useful and practical, but let me tell you, it won’t work with all cars, for example, it won’t work for Korean cars. It didn’t work for me when I was trying to work on a 2006 Suzuki reno made in Korea, but for anything else, it will work.

Review 3: Works amazing
This AUTEL IM508 is great. It programs most keys and runs very smoothly. I can see diagnoses of my car and the live data as well. It is very useful. It has a lot of other wonderful features. I am amazed by this. This product is a great tool, great customer service, fully satisfied 100%. I would recommend this product.
