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.
Autel Maxisys Chrysler Dodge Jeep Fiat Alfa 12+8 OBDII Cable Adapter
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.
