With the Autel MaxiSys Elite and  MaxiSys Pro MS908P if you have the J2534 ECU Programming Device you can program or do the ECU update. (BUT NOT THROUGH AUTEL ON ALL CARS ECU) you will have to contact the manufacturer site of that vehicle that you plan to do the Flashing.

THINGS YOU NEED!

1. AUTEL J2534 ECU Programming Device 2. AUTEL J2534 ECU Programming Device Cable to connect to a Laptop to the J2534 ECU Programming Device Via the USB port3. a "WINDOWS" laptop. because none of the automotive manufacturers makes software for Apple Computer ( P.S you can run Boot camp on your mac to install windows 10. but windows 7 and windows XP isn't supported on boot camp)4. Many automotive manufacturers programs run on Windows 10 (MANY BUT NOT ALL). If the program fails or isn't working correctly, you need a (WINDOWS 7 OR WINDOWS XP operating system it's usually stated in their requirements what is supported and what is not).   (the automotive manufacturers try to make the most money they can get so that why SOME automotive manufacturers company don't update their flashing programs to the latest operation system like Windows 10 etc. because they don't want to spend thousand if not even millions to updated everything and testing and debugging)5. The Internet with excellent wifi connection ( if your wifi goes out due to a bad or weak internet connection while updating, programming,etc. a car ECU you can fry, brick the ECU) so make sure you have an excellent internet connection.6. Jump box or anything to charge the vehicle battery while updating, (if the car battery  dies while an ECU updated you can fry, brick, break, etc. the ECU)7. You will need to "BUY A SUBSCRIPTION" from the manufacturer website of that vehicle you're going to do to have access to the flashing software, and from there you can download their software.(EACH MANUFACTURER has their own website with their own flashing software. So yes you need to buy a subscription for every different car year and model. For every manufacturer out there to be able to do different vehicles) Don't worry they all offer different plans so lets so your working on a car for a one time use they offer different plans pick whatever plans suits you. They have one day from $10-$25 to a year from $1,250-$1,800+.MANUFACTURERS  WEBSITES FOR FLASHING SOFTWARE/SUBSCRIPTIONS LINKS"Acura, Honda" :   http://www.serviceexpress.honda.com/ "Audi" :   http://erwin.audiusa.com"BMW":   http://www.bmwtechinfo.com/ "Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Eagle, Plymouth":   http://www.techauthority.com/ "Ferrari" :   http://www.ferraritechinfo.com"Ford, Lincoln, Mercury" :   http://www.motorcraftservice.com/ "GM - Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, GEO, Hummer, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Saturn" :   http://www.gmtechinfo.com/ "Hyundai" :   http://www.hmaservice.com"Infiniti" :   http://www.infiniti-techinfo.com"Isuzu" : http://www.isuzutechinfo.com/ "Jaguar" :  http://topix.jaguar.jlrext.com/topix/i18n/index "Kia" :    http://www.kiatechinfo.com"Land Rover" :   http://www.landrovertechinfo.com/ "Lexus" :    http://techinfo.lexus.com"Maserati" :   http://maseratitechinfo.com"Mazda" :   http://www.mazdaserviceinfo.com/ "Mercedes-Benz"  :   http://www.startekinfo.com/ "Mini" :     http://www.minitechinfo.com/ "Mitsubishi" : http://www.mitsubishitechinfo.com/ "Nissan" :  http://www.nissan-techinfo.com"Porsche" : https://techinfo2.porsche.com/PAGInfosystem/VFModuleManager?Type=GVOStart "Saab" :    http://epsiportal.com/Site/ "Subaru" :   http://techinfo.subaru.com"Suzuki" :    http://www.suzukipitstopplus.com"Toyota, Scion " :    http://techinfo.toyota.com/ "Volkswagen" : http://erwin.vw.com"Volvo "  : http://www.volvotechinfo.com/*!DISCALMAER!:WE HAVE NOT TESTED EVERY MANUFACTURER WEBSITE, AND CAN'T TELL YOU IF THE AUTEL J2534 ECU PROGRAMMING DEVICE IS COMPATIBLE WITH THERE SOFTWARE.
