I use an Autel Maxisys ms908 pro for work also snap on diagnostics. The Autel does way to much in as far as your get yourself into trouble if you don't know what your doing but for clearing codes and re setting service lights its great it gets you into the f1 gearbox but your end up in lots of trouble if you don't know what your doing thats how advanced it is .
Well i purchased a system reader code reading / clearing ,resting, and diagnostics , etc. the machine was Â£400 ,
i received it friday
and i can confirm after connecting it today too my car ,it will be a big help in the event of a late or over due service or a fault arising etc,
the service interval reset works and resets mileage interval and confirms this, and reads all ecus, some codes are iso but i found wit the issues on my car there were normally both codes generic and maserati , this is a big help if you have a fault , iam not saying for 1 minute that it will cure all your issues but maybe point in the right direction , i know errors can sometimes misguide a search for a fault, it may help:
Please don't run the cable bedding in procedure from the Launch. I managed to goose two handbrake ECUs with one when I was working in Chiswick. I don't know what it did but the end result was a dead module. I used my SD3 on the third ECU.
hi voicey ,
thanks for the warning , maybe that was older or different software then, It and tech move forward so fast these days,,
i also red somewhere either on here or digital kaos , or mhh that launch x431 would not do service reset correctly , that's not my findings with this unit, anyway i take on board your warning, some times reading or re-setting a ecu or module unit can make it pop for no rhyme or reason as iam sure you know anyway, , same as some bmw and audi's if you remove and refit battery that can find a weak ecu,
i personally would only try this if i was doing the procedure ,and after doing some software version research etc, as with any function available,
