We collect some FAQ about Autel DS808, which frequently asked by our customers. Hope it will help you more or less.

Q: Can you use this to program new keys
A: Yes you can reprogram keys with this tester

Q: can you program the abs module with this
A:DS808 can not program the abs module.Only maxisys pro can do it

Q: Is it availalable with standard package which has less adapters and cables?
A:Yes, we have standard package Autel Maxidas DS808.

Q: Is it difficult to register this device? And can it support Spanish?
A: Registering the device was easy. You simply go to autel’s website and set up an account. Once you do that you take the registration code/passcode from the scan tool and register it on the website. You then make sure that the scan tool is hooked up to your wifi which is setup in settings. Then you are ready to update the scan tool with the latest software.
Changing the language settings is also easy. You simply do that in settings as well and have multiple different choices. I do know Spanish was one of them. I returned mine because it could not code or reset any adaptaions in any modules on my vehicles. My vehicles are about 15 years old and I think the support on older vehicles goes away with the updates. It probably has more capabilities on the newer vehicles. I should have purchased one of these 5 years ago and never updated it so that the scan tool could retain its capabilities.

Q: Can i use for other connections besides OBD2?
A: Yes, this is full set version, it is included with many cables and adapter which are not OBD2.

Q: What is the head set used for with the scan tool
A:It’s not used with the tool is just a free give away to get you to buy an outdated tool that according to autel there will be no more updates after Dec 2017. I sent it back because I couldn’t get it to update or more like it removed software during update which is another common complaint on their site. I feel it’s dishonest to sell things claiming a year full updates and it’s not a year is much less than a year but I guess China isn’t afraid of a class action for fraud.

Q: Does it do tire pressure and how about the free headset?
A:It will perform limited tire pressure functions (i.e. Read it) if the ECU program allows it via OBD II connector. The free head phones are surprisingly very good, they are comfortable, easy to use, battery lasts a long time and rechargeable.

Q: Does this tool have bi-directional control and diagnostics for the Body control Module?
A: Yes, of course, it can support it.

Q: can it program tpms sensor
A: It can put the car into programing mode but you will need a tpms sensor tool

Q: Can it do a power balance on a ford 2006 f350 diesel?
A: Yes, it can be supported.

Q: can i use in Spanish language ?
A: Could you tell me the serial No. of your DS808? To change language, you need to download all the software again, so your device needs to be within the updating period. If it is still within updating preriod, please provide us the serial No. and we can ask Autel to authorize Spanish for you.

Q: can this unit be used to relearn the idle, on a 2010 chevy 1500 silverado z71, auto trans, 5.3
A: Yes, it can be supported.

Q: Dose it work on 24v truck
A: Mine is a 808 and is 12 volt only. You may have to get one for heavy duty trucks, depending on the make. Sorry I couldn’t help.

    VXDIAG VCX NANO and Forscan Test on Sport Trac Mountaineer I want just Shared my repairing experience of 2002 Sport Trac with 1998 Mountaineer drivetrain, with VXDIAG VCX NANO Ford and ELS27 FORScan scanner. Haven’t been able to get any past v86 to work when installed on a laptop running XP. I tried installing v81 then v91 then v97 but that didn’t work, not even for 3 days. Nor did changing the time, date and time zone. I was able to set the tire size and some other things, including reading DTCs that require communication with the PCM. But when attempting to program the latest calibration to the PCM or do the ABS Service Bleed, there’s suddenly a “PCM Communication Failure”. It also fails to do the KOEO and KOER tests, claiming it cannot sense when the brake pedal is depressed. All bogus, false errors. I get the same “communications failure” on a completely stock 1998 Mountaineer as I do on my 2002 Sport Trac with 1998 Mountaineer drivetrain. FORscan scan tool can do the KOEO and KOER tests and the ABS module self test with this VCX NANO device, but it does not yet support the ABS bleed function. FORscan can also clear KAM from the PCM, which IDS v86 fails to do with the VXDIAG VCX NANO, again that “communications failure” with the PCM. FORscan can also do the other tests that involve running the windows, wipers, locks and windshield washer.
