The Chrysler 12+8 Adapter is Autel's bypass for Chrysler's Security Gateway Module (SGM) which limits an aftermarket scan tool to only reading DTCs and viewing data.
2018 and newer Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, Jeep, and Fiat now have a secure gateway module or SGM. This SGM will not allow your scan tool to do bidirectional controls on the vehicle. Autel has provided a cable to bypass the SGM. The new Chrysler 12+8 Diagnostic Cable allows communication with latest model Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Fiat & Alfa vehicles.
The 12+8 Adapter can be used with Autel Maxisys Series Scanners MS906BT+ like MS906BT, MS906S, MS908, MS908S, MS908S PRO, Maxisys Elite and IM608.
OBDSTAR devices like OBDSTAR X300 DP Plus
Launch devices like Launch X431 V, Launch X431 V+ etc.
What is it used for?
1. It's used to diagnose on Chrysler Jeep Renegade Wrangler 300C after 2018 year
