Introduction of the Autel IM508 and XP400 Pro Unboxing

Autel IM508+XP400 Pro is a cost-effective combination for you to maximize the IMMO functions. Today we’re going to show you an unboxing illustration of this combination.

When we get Autel IM508 and XP400 Pro and open the carton, we can see the black packing box with hard lines. Next, we will show them separately.

Open the packing box of IM508, Opening this box, we can see that on one side of it are the IM508 Tablet and XP200 Key Programmer.

The following image is shown from the front, back, and top of the IM508. At the top of IM508, from left to right, are Lock/Power Button, USB Port, DOIS-PinPort, Micro SD Card Slot, and Mini USB OTG Port.

Then the next image shows the front, back, and bottom VUSB Ports of the XP200 Key Programmer.

Well, on the other side of the packing box are some cables and adapters.

As we can see, the packing box has many cables and adapters in addition to the Xp400.


Cables for Spare Signal, USB Cable (Standard USB – Type B USB), ECU Cable, MCU Cable, MC9S12 Cable

And so on.

In the image below, we can clearly see the front, back, top, and bottom of the XP400 Pro.

After several months of use, I now really think the IM508 and XP400 are an excellent fit.

I have successfully performed “All Keys Lost” on my 2007 Honda S2000 and programmed a new replacement key. My main immobilizer programmer doesn’t work on this car, saying “ECU not found”, but the IM508 is able to network and program the key just fine with the vehicle’s computer.

Next, I was able to use it on my 2009 Honda Civic EX-L Couple to reset a nasty/non-existent ABS/VSA trouble code that my Bluetooth scanner and Torque app couldn’t clear/reset. Now, after replacing one of my wheel speed sensors, I have ABS and VSA again!

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 over $150 just to diagnose the system when all it takes is a new battery and a code reset! Everything works fine now.

The only thing I wish the unit had was the ability to wirelessly connect via Bluetooth to the vehicle’s OBD II port like some more expensive scanners do or to be able to pair my existing OBDLink MX+ with the tablet.

I sincerely hope this article is useful to you.
