This product has received excellent reviews from all our colleagues for being accurate and always working when it is needed. If you are looking for a new scanner, this may be the best selection for you but if the price is a major factor then we suggest checking out Launch icarscan OBD2 Scanner.

Features That Make It Stand Out
This is, hands down, one of the best gadgets on the market, especially for the price. By including small features like auto VIN and boot-up times, you can quickly and easily begin testing and scanning the car. One of the best parts about it is that it includes a live data option that is known for being incredibly quick, so you can watch the live stream from the car while sitting at your computer. This adds a level of convenience to the device that comes in very handy.

You can scan for countless systems, including air conditioner, navigation, radio, instrument cluster, airmatic, ABS, airbags, and so much more. Some users stated that it detected over 40 systems on one vehicle which is a pretty good deal.

For the Price, You Are Getting a Deal
The cost of this device is low when compared to its competitors. The best part about that is though it is low in price, it is in no way low in quality. The Autel gives you a two-in-one deal by not only working as a scanner but as a diagnostic tool as well. You can reprogram your keys for free after proving you own the vehicle and receiving the key code from the dealer. It also allows for users to reset the ABS and gives options to reprogram different modules on many cars.

With this product, you will be able to calibrate the correct seat with the Occupant Classification System module, perform deep body scans of the truck or car, and perform idle relearns as well.

Details Regarding the Cost
As mentioned briefly above, the price of the device is what really draws in so many people. You can have all of the features you need to scan your ride. In fact, many claim you receive up to 80 percent more features than the more expensive options on the market. While you cannot perform waveform analysis, you can still do some serious merging and graphing of data.

With one year of free software updates included and a capable device for auto scanning, you are definitely getting a deal if you choose to order this.

All About the Setup, Installation, and Customer Service
It is known for being very simple when it comes to the setup and installation of the product. You can have it up and running in little to no time at all and will be scanning vehicles within minutes of receiving it.

A lot useful features of MS906

I am more than impressed with what this little tool can do for the price. I was able to do variant coding on a W212 Mercedes, Airmatic calibration and it still had a lot of other useful features( it was able to access all of the 46 modules installed on the Merc).

4-1

I also used it on a BMW, Toyota Sienna and a Ford Ranger truck and it was able to access all of the modules there as well, perform live tests, actuations, adaptations ( I saw the option to perform shift adaptations on the Mercedes but I haven’t tried it yet) and resetting to default values where applicable.
One cool thing I like about it is the ability to perform graphing ( to a limited extent – not oscilloscope detail but still on par with equivalent but more expensive Autel Scan Tool on the market like SnapOn or Matco).

The not so great parts would be the other, non diagnostic related functions like:
1) Email sharing of the diagnostic files ( they have an embedded app but it doesn’t work with yahoo or gmail servers – I got around it by downloading the yahoo app and using that one to send files to my computer)
2)The tutorial section ( it’s pretty much non existent and for the most part doesn’t even connect to the Autel servers)
3) The complete lack of wiring diagrams and any sort of schematics.

Overall this MaxiSYS MS906 is a great tool to have around for working on your car, pre purchase inspections and helping out friends. It’s biggest plus in my opinion is it’s price, none of the competitors can even get close to it price wise.

Keep in mind that you have to update frequently to be able to work with modules in newer vehicles. Out of the box it has a 1 year free subscription included, after that if you want to update it you have to pay around 600$ per year at Obd2tool.com.

What do you think about Autel MaxiSys Elite?

34-1

Zach Davis Said: “Moved up from the Autel Maxisys Pro MS908P. The docking station is nice since I can leave it on my toolbox all day. the screen is a million times better than the 908p and it also has more memory. This thing is faster than the 908P in boot up time and also navigation through the menus and connecting to the vehicles. This comes with the newest J2534 which is smaller than the one with the 908P and also has no antenna. Ive used it to code a few cars and also with my Laptop to flash a few different makes of vehicles. You just need to make sure to install the right software. If your a professional this is the tool for you. my snap on versus stays in the toolbox 99% of the time now that I have this”.

stuzman Said: “I’m a shade tree mechanic that needed something more powerful than the basic code readers. I used it to reset adaptations and do a quick learn on a transmission in a Chrysler Pacifica and it worked great. This has a lot of functions for the money”.

Hannah Kennedy Said: “The Maxisys Elite met my needs and was able to communicate with all of the vehicles that I own. I compared it to my Tech 2 scanner and the same functionality was built within this tool. And the bi-directional controls were the same and worked flawlessly. It’s a very capable tool with lots of features such as reprogramming keys, fobs, modules and being able to communicate wirelessly with the vehicle”.

Alex3lizondo Said: “I’ve been a tech for almost 8 years and this is the best hands down scan tool. I recently owned the autel ds708 for a number of years and did me great for the time. I wanted to upgrade to a newer model. So far it’s been good with communicating with all make and models. Shows multiple scan data pids, good graphing of o2 sensors. A fourth of a price for a snap on versus and still has more functions besides the lab scope. I work with another technician and he still needs to borrow my scan tool at times”.

Carlos Zapata Said: “The Autel Scanner does so much and for the inexpensive price, is a steal. From programming keys, resetting PCM’s, adaptive learning and bi-directional controls. Customer service on the other hand is awful. I bought the tool and could not get in touch with anyone to save my life. Customer service is key no matter the product and Autel needs to learn this. Furthermore, for those who do not know, you do not have to be plugged into a power source when connected to an OBD2 port. In addition, if you copy the files from the SD card to another upgraded 16GB 80 plus MBPS, pids and information will load faster; if you delete the vehicles you will never work on or see, it will be even faster. It is not a scan tool though, it is a diagnostic analysis machine and it will take awhile to load parameters and control, because it is preparing for a command state where the tool becomes an actuator. Blah Blah Blah you get the idea, great tool for diagnostics and people who seldomly need to reset PCM or program modules, for those who replace a lot of Computers such as the PCM,ECM, TCM….. go with the upgraded MAXISYS. For the prices, you will surely be impressed with the capabilities and to choose a different tool, you will spend no less than 500 plus or more than the maxidas. Hope this helps someone looking into the tool.”

First Time Using Autel MaxiSys MS906

Like a kid in a candy store, I had to test it out. Being that the Autel MS906 is able to do everything the dealer-specific scanners can, I decided to check out a customer’s engine light on their Ford Escape.

Like any professional grade scan tool, you have to connect the cable just like a computer cable with those little screws before you can use it. But once it was connected, I plugged the scan tool in.

Nothing happened!!

Unlike most OBD2 scan tools, you have to power up the MS906 on your own.

I pressed the button and the screen lit up. It was only a few seconds until the main screen displayed. And it really didn’t take long at all to figure out how to check the code.

I scrolled through to the Ford button, pressed it, and pressed the “EOBD” or engine light icon. It literally walks you through the process to read the codes. And I found out the Escape needed an upstream oxygen sensor.

Out of curiosity, while I was checking the scanner out, I looked at the MaxiFix tab and was astonished to see that there was diagnostic and repair information for virtually every make and model out there.

Just because I was curious, I looked up the upstream oxygen sensor procedure for my customer’s Ford Escape, and it looks to be correct.

Definitely, this information will come in handy.

More Tool Than I Expected

It’s both a good thing and a bad thing, but there is way more to the Autel MS906 thank I expected.

While there are intuitive functions, you can miss out on so much if you don’t spend a couple of hours reading over the manual. That in itself is a problem – the owner’s manual is 104 pages long!

I don’t know a single tech that’s going to take the time to learn the tool that well.

You can use it as a shop manager as well. But that’s something every shop owner already has, and one you won’t be switching just because you got a new scan tool.

Another thing is your unlikely to use most of the adapters that come with it in the case. It’s just needless. They should probably sell those separately

The Autel MaxiSys MS906 has so many features that some are bound to be extremely useful

Features

The Autel MaxiSys MS906 has so many features that some are bound to be extremely useful.

It has Smart AutoVIN which will detect the VIN number from your car’s ECU most of the time. If it can’t recognize it, you can manually enter it easily.

Functionality

It can perform functions most shop owners farm out to the dealership like key programming and ECU programming. And it’s even capable of programming tire pressure monitor sensors if you buy the adapter with Autel OBD2 Scanner.

Like I said before, it’s intuitive for basic functions like checking codes and has a massive 8-inch color touchscreen.

You’ll need to connect it to Wifi. But once you do you have access to online resources, remote support, and updates. Updates come free for a year for the MS906 according to the website but I haven’t tried it yet.

I’ve used the Snap-On Ultra Modis scan tool, another one from MAC Tools, a few of the smaller handheld scan tools, and this one blows them away. Since my first use, my staff and I have put it to the test with dozens of vehicles and haven’t encountered a problem yet.

It can sometimes feel a little bulky in the vehicle but the built-in kickstand hangs nicely on the top of the steering wheel to keep it more accessible.

It supposedly works on as many as 80 different makes, most of which I’ll never see so it’s hard to say if there could be problems for other users.

It’s also great that it uses the Android platform, so a huge segment of users will feel right at home with it.
