Xtool KC501 FAQ:

Q:I have a kc501, but it can't read ecu with pc software, Xtool must be having issues?????? 
It's communicating with pc, but it’s limited. For example it cannot read the few ecu models it has. On key programming it only does a few European cars. No Mazda, Toyota, Jeep, Benz, Honda, etc unless you tell me I have to upgrade the software.
A:Hello,dear, It’s normal for Xtool KC501 to be limited when using it to work alone with PC software. There are few software functions are supported, and the language is only English and Chinese.
In fact, KC501 mainly works with XTOOL X100 PAD3 (X100 PAD Elite)/X100 PAD3 SE/A80 H6/A80 Pro (H6 Pro) to do key programming (all keys lost & add new key), and multi-languages are supported.
You’d better use Xtool KC501 key & chip key programmer together with X100 PAD3/A80 tablet series (just mentioned above). If you use KC501 alone, you only can get few functions.
