Autel MaxiDas MD808 Review

A quick look of the Autel MaxiDAS MD808 capabilities

Testing on a 2016 Corolla

 

Note: not sponsored or affiliated with Autel anyway

 

Boot up quickly, for 4 seconds around

Enter generic OBDII (check Engine symbol)

Connect in generic mode - fast

autel-md808-testing-4

 

Read codes: stored codes, pending codes, permanent codes

autel-md808-testing-5

 

autel-md808-testing-6

 

 

Enter live data - PID loading quickly

Using the custom list to graph some live data

Short term fuel trim and RPM should work for this test

autel-md808-testing-13

 

Maximum graphs allowed is only 2 at a time

There is also no amplitude adjustment for the graphs

autel-md808-testing-17

 

At least the graphs has a quick response time

A combined graph

Have to edit the contrast because it is difficult to see

autel-md808-testing-18

 

Personally would not recommend using the merged graphs because it’s not easy to see and keep track

I guess, in some occasion, having a merged graph is better than none

 

Enter on-board monitor test (mode 6)

Looks like the monitor id’s are translated

Non-translated id’s will show up in HEX like ($01)

Mis-fire monitor data

Purge flow monitor

autel-md808-testing-25

 

Looks like not all test id’s are translated

Non-translated id’s can make some diagnosis difficult

autel-md808-testing-26

 

Also not all the test id’s applies to this vehicle

Here’s an example of translated id’s of the same car from my another scanner

Exit the main menu

 

On to the enhanced portion of Autel MD808 (the one that reads Scan)

autel-md808-testing-29

 

autel-md808-testing-30

Here is the major downside of this scanner

There’s no auto id

autel-md808-testing-32

 

autel-md808-testing-33

 

The scanner is updated, but for some reason, the latest is the year 2014 (the vehicle is a 2016)

autel-md808-testing-35

 

Good luck on knowing the engine

autel-md808-testing-35

 

All vehicle information

autel-md808-testing-36

 

Auto scan

autel-md808-testing-37

 

Since the scanner is a regular MD808, it will show Engine, Trans, ABS and SRS only

If someone here is looking for MD808 for full-system diagnostic, you can go to http://www.obdexpress.co.uk/wholesale/autel-maxidiag-md80...

Enter ECU and read live data

autel-md808-testing-40

 

autel-md808-testing-41

 

The data list seems to be mixed around where some can be graphed and some cannot

autel-md808-testing-41

 

autel-md808-testing-42

 

But there seems to be a bit of second lag when existing the control unit

autel-md808-testing-43

 

I give this Autel MD808 a 3.9 Star as a first impression because it could be better for its price. (Rating may change after further testing)

 

At least compared to the Launch crp129 I used in the past, the MD808 is the clear winner.
