Feedback—The Key Pro M8 Programmer

this is a real story:

Got one key pro M8 from China, received by DHL for 4-days delivery, I spent some time to install, then sit in the car, plug the OBD2 16pin cable to the car and M8, come back to M8 desktop, click the menu, and start to program new key or copy spare key.

keyprom8 works flawlessly like an original:
im not a lover of clones nor will i ever be , but keyprom8 is by far the best of the bunch in both proven coverage and ease of use, Ad did a good job of protecting the new releases thus far, so not as up to date as original, but still a lot of coverage. Most locksmiths will agree me that everything I tried with it worked flawlessly as the original.

I tested successfully on old car even before 2006 and both new cars up to 2012 i.e Nissan Maxima and Altima up to 2012 year and they have the same immobilizer system.

ford up to 2010 was excellent even has pats bypass fully working as the original, a real time saver on 4c models, Nissan worked well as did vag renault and peugeot, though you must bear in mind it has the mvp pro functions of 18 to 24 months ago, so anything released since then wont be on it and further updates are unlikely, not the latest vag or ford functions, so wont do precoding on vag and wont do ford 2012 on, the rest is pretty much as the original, i couldnt fault it sadly , id have rather it been a croc of shit, sadly it was decent kit that worked.

Tokens are a pain but cheap:

The key pro m8 comes itself including 800 tokens ! wonderful!

Despite being cheaper tokens, it’s still token based, key pro m8 doesn’t take tokens on that many cars for pin reading, though ford and Renault it does on all.

Tokens are a pain but cheap, buy 50 tokens get 150 free at present, buy 100 get 300 free, thats alot of tokens making it very cheap to use compared to original, thats around 2usd a token only, is this big token sale a rush to sell before they release token free system, or are AD close to shutting them down so selling all they can, who knows with china.

Read out pin code

I also successfully read out pin code on Dodge, Audi A6, read pin code failure on kia, Hyundai and FIAT.

To get Nissan pin code, additional pin code calculator is needed, Nissan SuperCode is used on old Nissan and Nissan Pin Code Calculator is usded on newer Nissan.

I successfully use Nissan calculator to calculate 2011 Nissan Cube Proximity, here I simply make a instruction: 1) read a code from BCM. 2) input this code (for example:123AC) into the blank box under Nissan Cal software “SuperCode”. 3) Get the pin code at the right box.


Compare with other key pro:

Compared with go diag t300 +, ci prog, x100 and SKP900, keyprom8 stands out head and shoulders above rest because of what its a copy of, the sheer volume of coverage it has .

Tip: the above view of point is only based on my personal experience, x100 and SKP900 are updating frequently on the function and workable models.

In a word, Key pro M8 is the most powerful and most expensive key programmer, it’s best for professional locksmith who will make key for many car models.


Plug both the power adapter and the USB cable to the key pro m8 multiplexer
Press the “ON” button to turn on the machine, then get a window message “Found New Hardware”, then pause here to click My Computer- Computer Management-Device Manager-Universal Serial Bus Controllers-The Key Pro with a yellow exclamation mark in front (means the computer and key pro M8 doesn’t establish a good communication, I need to install the driver).
Go on the “Found New Hardware Steps” and complete the found new hardware Wizard steps
Finally come back to check “Universal Serial Bus Controllers “, you will found no a yellow exclamation mark in the front of “The Key Pro “



There are two possible issues during the installation, one is to get message “this version is too old, please update!” and another is M8 can’t open when you use OBD adapter to connect.

Solution to the first issue is to click “OK” to update

Solution to the second issue is to connect one card then M8 be opened. B card can’t be used to open the M8.
