Can I Buy Autel XP400 PRO and Sell XP400 Programmer?

Question: I have an Autel xp400 programmer. I will purchase an additional xp400pro. Can I sell my xp400? Will it be used on other im608 programmer?


Autel chief engineer replied: The used xp400 is not bound with im608 (they are independent), you can buy xp400 pro instead, and then sell xp400. It can be used perfectly with other im608 device.

You can sell yours on eBay for close to cost paid. Help offset the pro cost. But many people choose not to sell it. To be honest, it’s good to keep it as a backup, in case some problems occur and the pro is stop working. If the pro will not work anymore for any reason, you can still finish the job and charge the customer.

Q: Which is a better buy, im508 + xp400 pro or im608 + xp400 pro?

A:   The IM508 does not have the diagnostic functions of the IM608, and it doesn’t come with the J2524 VCI.

Ideally the IM608 is the better tool for doing keys, but you can do a lot with the IM508.
You could do a lot with the IM508 + XP400PRO (Make sure you get the Pro, it’s the latest version so getting a non Pro will mean your getting someone’s old stock!). But you will be able to do more with the IM608PRO.
