The Autel MaxiSys CV scans that bus very quickly, reads the code, and gives us the OEM flash code and the generic SAE code. We were also pleasantly surprised to find that it had repair information built into the Cummins ISB code.

Over the coverage of the Autel MS908CV, this scanner works well to run 2 bi-directional commands, the fuel lift pump override and cylinder cutoff test. Compared to our TEXA truck, we can actually make over 100 commands and parameter changes.
