Autel MaxiCOM MK808 most complete review

Before understanding the Autel MaxiCOM MK808, we also need to understand the logic of the autel product line. Autel's comprehensive diagnostic product line is divided into five categories: MaxiCheck and MaxiCOM focus on vehicle maintenance function, MaxiDiag series focuses on basic diagnosis & simple vehicle maintenance function, AutoLink and MaxiLink focus on OBD protocol & code reading and clearing, MaxiTPMS series focus on tire pressure function, IM series focuses on anti-theft function, and ADAS focus on driving assistance function.

After understanding the logic of Autel's product line, let's look at Autel MaxiCOM MK808. It's not difficult to understand its core functions. MK808 focuses on car maintenance. If you need frequent car maintenance or you are an auto repair shop, Autel MK808 is a good choice for you.

OK, let's learn more about MK808.

What can the MK808 do?

Autel announced that the MK808 has more than 28 popular functions, including Oil Reset, SAS Calibration, Odometer, IMMO Keys (disable lost keys, add new keys), ABS Bleeding, Injector Coding, Battery Registration, PDF Regeneration, etc., and still growing. But not all of them are listed, which leads me to doubt this kind of publicity so far. However, these functions listed above are no problem. You only need to consider which functions can be used in your car.

Can Autel MK808 do mileage correction?

There is no information about mileage correction in the above function, so I inquired about the user manual of mk808, and there is no information about mileage correction. Unfortunately, it may not support mileage correction. If you want to use mileage correction, you may need to choose another series of products, such as MS908p. Here is a key reminder that changing the mileage reading on a motor vehicle is a felony.

Will the Autel MaxiCOM MK808 work on my vehicle?

For most vehicles produced after 1996, the MK808 scanner provides all the advertised basic OBD2 functions and clears the thorny manufacturer fault codes. In addition, you can also use the scan tool on 56 brands of vehicles with OBD2 systems made in the United States, the European Union, and Asia to run advanced professional functions:
-Europe:
Mercedes Benz, sprint, BMW, Fiat, Land Rover, Maserati, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Lancia, LT3, Maybach, mini, Seat, Skoda, Vauxhall, Volkswagen CV, Renault, Saab, Smart, Volvo, Volkswagen, abate, alpha, Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Citroen, Dacia, Ford, Jaguar, Lamborghini
-Asia:
Acura, Daewoo, Dafa, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Isuzu, Kia, Lexus, Suzuki, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Ssangyong, Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, GTR, scion
-USA:
Chrysler, Ford, GM, Dodge, Jeep

However, there may be some differences in actual use. For example, the specific model of your car may not be in its support list, or your car does not support a certain function.

Conclusion

Autel MaxiCOM MK808 is designed for people who are very serious about cars because it is designed with a user-friendly operation function, which you can't find in ordinary handheld basic OBD2 tools.

If you are the owner of a machinery store, the store manager will properly keep all your customer information, data files, and vehicle records.

If you are a car enthusiast who often works in cars, this scanner is also worth your money. The data manager opens the organization system where the saved data file is.

Note that before using such scanner tools, you must check whether it supports your model, and sometimes you even need to check whether a function supports your model.

PROS  CONS
  • The car has complete maintenance functions
  • Covering a wide range of models
