Solved! Autel IM608 XP400 Cannot Read Any Transponder

I receive a new Autel IM608 package. I want to use it for the first time today to read/write a transponder.

It was connected properly to the XP400 key programmer.

But there is a problem with the XP400.

It wouldn’t scan the transponder. I tried several transponders and it would not read any of them.

The version of Autel XP400 is shown as below:

Software: V2.01

Firmware: V2.02

Hardware: V08
