If you use G-BOX2 to work with Autel key programmer to read and write ECU, and get the note “The current function is only available with G-BOX3 or above device types. Check the G-BOX type.” That means the vehicle model is not supported by G-BOX2 adapter, and you need to use the new Autel G-BOX3 Key Programming Adapter.
