Let’s learn the Most Detailed IMMO Application Instruction of Autel MaxiIM 508 as shown below.
What does IMMO application exactly mean?
The IMMO application requires a data link to the IMMO electronic control system of the test vehicle for diagnosis via OBD II connection. The application retrieves vehicle IMMO information and performs IMMO related functions, including Key Learning, Remote Control Learning, Remote Control Add, etc.
There are two options available when accessing the IMMO section:
- Smart Mode – accesses to a function menu where each function is configured as a smart guide system.
- Expert Mode – accesses to a function menu where each function is separated from each other.
After a mode is selected and the tablet establishes communication with the vehicle, the corresponding function menu or selection menu displays.
Two modes described in detail as below:
The Smart Mode provides guided functions with step-by-step instructions. Once the test vehicle is identified, a vehicle profile will display, select Yes to continue.
The tablet will access the vehicle IMMO ECU to read IMMO related information. Press OK to continue. Then the vehicle key status will display.
Read the vehicle key status carefully and press OK to display the function menu.
The functions vary by IMMO parts, please follow the onscreen instructions to select the correct IMMO part.
