Program Jeep Compass Smart keys lost via Autel IM508

Question: I have a car model 2012 Jeep Compass Sport VIN: 1C4NJCBAXCD6xxxxx, Pontiac G6 2008 (USA) Skim Key Code ( Immo Code) that is showing as an issue.  This vehicle is made in the USA.  Can you tell me if the IM608 Autel Tool will work on my vehicle?  In terms of the IMMO for lost keys, key replacement, programming of the module / remotes, read the pin for the remotes?  I think one of the keys is bad, or the module is bad.  Also, if I replace the IMMO Module can the Autel IM508 set the vin number to that new module in terms of programming the module and what are the functions of the IMMO- specifically?

I am just looking for a tool that has at least the scanner, and (25+) Service functions, MOSTLY (IMMO) inclusive.

Please visit the official site to select product model IM508 (IMMO), Jeep (NA), compass (NA is the abbreviation for North America):

You will see Compass year, system, tested functions ( add key, all keys lost, read password, remote learning) and the last list is IMMO part replacement.


What’s more, here is one test report for your reference:


Plug Autel MaxiIM IM508 into the OBD2 port the Jeep Compass, and then turn on ignition on.
