1.2018 Honda Pilot: OK
Tried for first time the other day on a 2018 Honda Pilot and was just amazed by the things this can do. Will do almost everything the Honda HDS will do. Had the opportunity to try programming a new key on 2006 Pilot so was anxious to see if it will work. So went on to perform key program procedure and worked pretty much identically to using the Honda HDS. I cannot recommend this tool enough. Also has the ability to do an all DTC scan and clear all DTCs using a quick erase function without having to go into each individual system. Still trying things out and learning everything its capable of.
2.Symptom: a yellow warning light
AUTEL AP200 capabilities: spray-clean the Air Sensor and.. DONE!
1.. It’s compact and fits in the glove compartment
2.. Gives more stats and data than I would ever know what to do with, but I only use what I need
3.. Free software for the 1st car, and a 21.99 fee per additional model
4.. The App takes some learning and provides more information you know what to do with at first.
3.With Autel AP200, I’ve already scanned/fixed a friend’s 5.3L Silverado, my Son’s 1.9L Saturn, and of course my own truck 5.9L Ram. I have to say that if you are looking for a scan tool that does work with the iOS Operating Sys, give this one a try..! Totally Satisfied (tickled even),.. BUSHLABS
4.Autel AP200 is GREAT for BMW F10 5-Series
It was easy to set up and it’s really easy to use. It scans tons of modules and gets lots of live data in charts that you can easily manipulate the range, C or F, display type, etc.
Example: to change the trans fluid on this car (I don’t believe that any automotive fluid is really “lifetime”) you have to complete the final fill at a certain operating temp range – Autel AP200 will give you real time data.
Turbo spool RPM’s
Engine oil temp
Wheel speed sensors (these can cause all sorts of issues with these cars – if you have a bad one you can easily see because all 4 are shown at the same time on the same screen as you drive).
It can even tell you what door is open – I guess this is helpful if you’re having door contact sensor issues.
What it cannot do? As far as I can tell it won’t do any two way active programming (like programming a battery). So you can’t really change setting or program modules – like transfer case adaptations or setting/initializing window module settings.
Keep in mind I’ve spent a grand total of 10 minutes with this tool but so far it’s an incredible value for a majority of users that need live data and manufacturer specific codes. Even if you aren’t a home mechanic it’s useful to pull codes when the light goes on (or iDrive warning pop up) and do some internet research (there’s a button next to the code readout that searches Google for you) and educate yourself so the mechanic doesn’t just completely hammer you with lies.
WELL DONE AUTEL – this Autel AP200 product was a long time coming and you guys nailed the value proposition. I’d have paid twice this amount for adaptations and programming but I understand you have to protect your pro level $1000+ scanners. But if you’re listening my wallet is at the ready.
5.I have a 2005 BMW m3 and the airbag light been on when I disconnected my seat. I bought Autel AP200 and it reset successfully from the application I had to download. You will have to download which car you have. Also tells you of faulty codes if you have any. I would definitely recommend this.
6.Autel AP200 works great on Toyota Echo 2002 with Galaxy S4
Installed Autel AP200 APP on Galaxy S4, and connected to my Toyota Echo 2002. This scanner works great on my car.
7.Autel AP200 on 2017 Ford Focus obd2
Been looking for a Bluetooth obd2 reader for the iPhone / iOS operating system that is not $100 and so far Autel AP200 works perfectly. I plugged it into my 2017 Ford Focus obd2 port paired with the Autel app and was able to read all information regarding boost, temperature, MAF, battery voltage, etc.
8.Autel AP200 OBD2 scanner is suitable for both professionals and DIYers
This professional diagnostic tool has comprehensive diagnostic functions, also reasonable price, which make it unique, and I did actually use it to fix a problem on my own. I saw the check engine light shining a few days ago and there were a variety of different signs that indicating something was wrong with my car. For example, the engine was harder to start, and my car run poorly, etc. I managed to use this to get the diagnostic trouble code –P0303 and made sure that the cause of the diagnostic trouble codes and the check engine light was the fault spark plugs. I determined to take my car to the mechanics and they quickly addressed the issues with reference to my diagnostic results. If you are the type of person who is always running to the mechanic for a repair blindly, there may be a scan tool that could help. Even if you can’t fix all the car problems by yourself, you can have a clear understanding of the actual situation and determine whether it is necessary to go to the local parts store for professional level repairs. No matter if you’re a professional mechanic or a car enthusiast, having a Professional OBD2 Scanner will help you.
