w164:

i did it today (EIS on bench)
w164
eis A1645451508 new type
pulling dump took 80 minutes
calculating pass online 4 min.
key programmed !!!

w164:

W164 need gateway

w164 2006:

Just did some minutes ago ML350 W164 2006
Read EZS, add key, write BE key all done in 17mn.
Really fast and i’m happy with the first try on car.
Use late software 2.0.0.0

w164 2009:

2009 W164 ML450

Very good speed!!

x164 gl 2012:

I did key x164 GL 2012.
All OK.
All done in 10-12 mn.

w164 2009-:

w164 after 2009
I did for testing 2 types of programming _ have got EZS with both programmed keys because customer claimed somethimes EIS works sometimes doesn’t – I have found that connector for immo aerial was desoldered from PCB so when I fixed it – EIS became fully working again – and then I started testing CGDI and made 2 types of programming (all programming on bench – EZS + GATEWAY EMULATOR)
1) programming in case one key is available and adding spare key – ALL OK!
2) programming in case of ALL KEYS LOST – ALL OK!

spare key programming was pretty fast
AKL scenario takes circa 80minutes to get data from EIS and You have to plug in and out emulator key every 5 seconds – I have bought VVDI POWER ADAPTER to pass all hassle on to adapter so You don’t have to watch whole process and move key in and out manually – but it doesn’t work with CGDI – seems adapter works only with VVDI MB and software drives it by adressed pin to switch connection off and on between ezs and key emulator – maybe CGDI TEAM could write a code to their SW and make VVDI POWER ADAPTER useful for all their customers.

w203:

W203 with W209 EZS all key lost, done in the car about 70mn: Succesful.

w203 2004:

Posche Piwis 3 Original and Clone – What’s the difference

What’s the difference between Porsche Tester Piwis III original and clone:

The genuine and copy differ in hardware only.

They share the same functions and features.

look here:

original piwis tester 3:

Porsche-piwis-3-original

clone piwis 3:

vxdiag-porsche-piwis-3-china-clone

Why you should have a Porsche Piwis 3:

vehicle coverage up to 2018: 911, Macan, Cayeme, Panamera, Boxter Cayman
Fast and stable connection Simulation mode ( diagnostic session without VCI connection )
Support online immobilizer programming
New DoIP diagnostic technique based on Ethereum for post-2017 Porsche
Developer mode enabled

What’s the difference between PIWIS II and Piwis 3:

PIWIS Tester III covers all new Porsche models like new Panamera 971, Cayenne 9Y0, Cayman 981 GT4 clubsport, etc., which are not supported by PIWIS II at all and will never be supported in the future. PIWIS Tester III also supports full range of diagnostics functions for all the Porsche models which have ever been released.

What can you do with Piwis 3 v37.250.015:

Diagnostics application is used for communication with control units. You can search for, identify, code and control program units, read out the event memory, execute complex processes, change drive links and execute routines.
Guided fault finding (GFF) generates a test plan for a fault code. This test plan shows the best sequence for carrying out tests. GFF compiles a list of recommended tests, documents and wiring diagrams
Actual values/input signals functions displays you the actual values and input signals of control units
Drive links/tests function displays the drive links of control units, allows you to change the parameters of these drive links and run test routines for individual control units
Maintenance/repairs function group – use this function to call up control unit-specific processes that cannot be implemented generically from the ODX data
Coding/programming function group – use this function to write coding values. Values can be coded automatically or set manually. This function group includes (Automatic coding, Manual coding, Customer-specific settings and Factory settings) coding modes
Logging – use this function to activate logging for diagnostics, guided fault finding (GFF) and measuring equipment applications. Temporary and permanent working log can be created
Filter – use this function to limit the view of the control units installed in the vehicle. In the diagnostic application you can create, edit, activate, deactivate or assign filters
Wiring diagrams application is the representation of physical connections and layouts of circuits
Measuring equipment interface is used for DC and AC voltage measurement, direct and alternating current measurement, diode testing, resistance measurement, continuity/open circuit testing, showing voltage, current and resistance over time (oscilloscope function)

Which Porsche model and year can be done with Piwis 3:

Piwis 3 is confirmed to work with all Porsche from 1998-2018:
Porsche 911(997) (991)
Boxster/Cayman (987)
Cayenne up to MY 2010
Cayenne from MY 2011
Panamera

Especially the latest models:
Paramera (971) 2018
Caynenne (92A) 2018
Macan (95B) 2018
911 (991) 2018
and other old models

SAE J2534 device can be used as Nissan Consult 3 Plus

This is for anyone wants to know if Bosch Proflasher j2534 can be used as a VI with Nissan Consult III Plus.

Here you go…

The CONSULT III plus (C-III Plus) R2R diagnostic software can be installed on any off-the-shelf personal computer that meets CONSULT software operating specifications and can be used with a compliant SAE J2534 device.

nissan-consult-3-plus-1

It’s from obd2tool.com
Not found the free version yet.

We do not take any responsibility if cause any damage.
As wrote on official PDF documentation, new device could work with Nissan Consult 3 plus R2R.

Anyway it’s only for 2018 and newer model.

System Requirements:
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7
Click here for Minimum System Requirements
J2534-1 Device: Drew Technologies – CarDAQ-Plus 2

Functionality:
Software does not support Immobilizer diagnosis. Immobilizer diagnosis can be completed by authorized and registered Security Professionals using CONSULT-III plus software.
Software does not support ECU reprogramming or blank programming function. NERS software will continue to support this function on any off-the-shelf personal computer that meets operating specifications.
For a complete list of supported software functions view the C-III plus R2R Operation Manual

Vehicle coverage:
CONSULT-III plus R2R software supports all Nissan and Infiniti 2018 model years or newer vehicles with the exception of GTR. GTR software for any off-the-shelf personal computer can be purchased from the GTR tab above.

Conclusion:

It only covers 2018 + vehicle and last time i checked there was about 3-5 in the list
also it is officially only supported by 1 J2534-2 Interface (cardaq +) so its not worth the website its listed on .
there is only one useful feature about this software and that’s the VCI Manger it comes with.

For a better Nissan vehicle coverage at a decent price, you can get a working Nissan Consult 3 Plus china clone of good quality.

Nissan, Infiniti, GTR: diagnostic OK, Immo & smart key OK

Nissan GRT: diagnostic OK, Immo OK

Electromobiles car: diagnostic OK, Immo OK (Require additonal Nissan consult 3 plus security card, Otherwise button “Immobilizer key” will be gray color and is unavailable to use.)

Why did I buy Cummins Insite 7.62 instead of Insite 8.xx

Here are some things learned while I was also deciding what Insite software to buy. Hopefully it can help someone. And please correct me if there is some things wrong.

If you search eBay for Inline 6 Insite 7.62, some of these will include the Insite software, but read carefully!. Some do not. I bought mine from the site OBD2TOOL works no issues and with good tech support. Satisfied so far.

Does the software comes in the CD ? Apparently yes. And you install and update from the CD, no internet connection required.

Is this software original and legal ? That’s where it gets fuzzy. Some consider it original and have been using it for years perfectly fine in their trucks. Others consider it pirated software and will rather buy directly from Cummins.

Is buying directly from Cummins more expensive ? Yes, a lot. And is a subscription for just one year.

Why version Cummins 7.62 and not the newest versions 8.xx (Insite 8.2.0)? Because newest versions have to communicate online with their mother ship(Cummins) and if they can’t, will stop working. If you want Insite 8.xx, forget cummins insite download for free! Spend some dollars and go to cummins insite crack version – my friend has one and never upsets him.

Will Cummins INLINE 7 work on the newer engines ? Apparently Yes. CM2350, CM2250, CM871, CM870 . And some others.

Should I use a laptop or Virtual Machine? If you don’t know a lot about installing software, the easiest way is to get a used laptop with Windows 7, and use it just for that. Do not install adicional software or go online, to make sure no malware gets to your truck ECM.

On other hand, if you have a fast laptop, enough Ram, and know a few difficult tricks, could install a program like Virtual Box , to run Cummins Insite on a virtual machine. That basically means that Insite will run completely isolated from other software in the same laptop.

How to use Xentry DAS on AVDI passthru

What is the AVDI recognized by Xentry?

Xentry Mercedes Passthru is different from from regular Xentry openshell. Xentry passthru does not use SDconnect toolkit. When you launch the program it will give you a dropdown where you can choose which J2534 device you want to use.

How to use Xentry Passthru?

If you got the Xentry Passthru installed, there is a tool which will do the dirty work for you.

Normally it is not linked or doesnt have desktop shortcut but resides (at least in my installation)
under

C:\Program Files (x86)\Mercedes-Benz\xentry\bin\SelectPTDevice

IF you have installed your passthru (would that be AVDI or anything else) with correct drivers, registry entries etc it will just present you with list of options and you select your VCI from dropdown list.

Heard good things about AVDI J2534 compatibility (real thing, don’t know about clones) so it shouldn’t be a big deal. Recently i have tried to use BOSCH KTS560 as passthru and it works perfectly okay.

For curiosity, i did also test the 20-euro MiniVCI that gets normally bundled with Toyota techstream packages. to my surprise it also works albeit slow and sometimes freezes the application. This one can be actually made to work even with old DAS like 2009, 2012….it’s just matter of proper settings in cal.ini and slave.ini

For DAS/Xentry users:

Old thread – but do not run the SetPassThruDAS.exe, as it was written for DAS/Xentry for Windows XP, and not Openshell or Xentry Passthru. All you need to do is install a fresh OS (Windows 7 Enterprise x86 or x64 SP1) ideally on a physical laptop, connect the AVDI device to the USB port and run the SetupInterface_yourserialnumber_PASSTHRU_xxxxxxx.exe and Next through the setup process. If you have a current version of the Passthru software, you will see a grayed out option for installing drivers for DAS that you cannot select, but do not be concerned about that. It will detect the AVDI, and install the appropriate J2534 dll files in the Windows\System32 directory. Then continue installing your Passthru software provided on the Blu-ray from Daimler. It will take a while to install, and once it verifies your hardware ID and installs your StartKey, launch Xentry Passthru from the icon it creates, and it will prompt you first thing as to what interface you want to use. You will see Abritus72 AVDI ABRITES Commander PT (your serial number here) in the drop down box. Select that device, and that is all their is to it. Xentry should automatically communicate with the vehicle.

(Solved) John Deere Service Advisor Search Engine Error

This is for anyone when he/she runs the John Deere Service Advisor Heavy Duty Truck Scanner Software, the system appears error message that the search engine module can not be loaded and then the program ends.

NOTE THAT YOU ARE TRYING ANY TRICK ON YOUR OWN RISK.

Optional solutions:

Solution 1:
Run as system administrator, roll back pc date reactivate using john deere edl v2 Then roll date back to normal date if error still renew once again. Been working for me so far.
Note that, don’t know how long it stay working but works im sure someone will have solution for it soon.
Also advice if doing fresh install roll back the date on pc do the install after then install and activations have been done.
Go to task manager look for the service adviser on have it start its tasks in 2030 :save and then reset your pc date should be good for while

Solution 2:
if you set a date before the lightweightidol license expired, start the lightweightidol service, set the real date and start Advisor, it works.

Solution 3:
start advisor. when error comes with “search engine” Close John Deere SA. afterwards set your PC date to feburary 2015. start SA again (run as administrator). it now comes with error on licence. close SA Again. set pc date back to normal. run SA Again. now it Works.

Solution 4:
The search engine error can be solved.
Set back the date, before the expiry date found in Service ADVISOR\SUIR\license.log (august 14 in my case). Start LightweightIDOL service. Set the real date, and Advisor working again.
I made a batch file to simplify it. To make it work Control Panel/Regional/short date format have to be yyyy-mm-dd or you have to modify batch. Maybe you have to modify ServiceADVISOR.exe path too in the batch. Have to run as administrator.
Sa.rar

Solution 5:
I have had the same error with ssearch engine connection in JD SA.
reinstalled it twice, changed system date back and forward, run activator. No result for me.

But actually I found the solution for this issue.
And the error disappeared.
newer data discs (2016/02)

Solution 6:
back date to 08.10.16
install JD SA, restart, activate, mount latest disk you have (05.2016) and install update, for finish get license error, ignore and close, set actualy date, run JD SA -> works fine, install july update
testing today on 3 laptops (Windows 7 and 10)
On a side note: procedure about turning off the updates
don’t know how long it stay working but works im sure someone will have solution for it soon.
Also advice if doing fresh install roll back the date on pc do the install after then install and activations have been done.
goto task manager look for the service adviser on have it start its tasks in 2030 :save and then reset your pc date should be good for while Smile (SO TURN IT OFF IN TASKMANAGER SO IT STARTS 20 30 YEARS FROM NOW!!)

Fresh new installations also work but can be much more complicated sure a patch would be much easier. But it can be done with out a patch so far

In taskmanager I don’t stop any service just put service advisor updater to 2030 to start
also makes sure eculp.ini configurator reads like this

How to Slove MB SD C4 Cannot Access OBD2 Port

When using china clone mb sd connect compact 4 Multiplexer, it could not link to the car computer, MB SD Connect C4 offered a message, saying like “check cable connection / turn ignition on”. Then tried again, clone SDconnect compact 4 multiplexer cannot access OBD2 port
Picture
According to customer’s feedback that he failed to access to the diagnostic OBD port when tried to use sd connect c4 read errors code from Benz SRS system. The system prompted an error message “check cable connection/turn ignition on”.
Possible Reason:

The error lies on the SD Connect C4’s battery.
Solution from OBD2TOOL.COM:

1) Check and record your MB SD Connect C4 multiplexer battery
2) Hook up a digital multimeter to set it to the direct current
3) Get two t-pins and plug them into the OBD socket at PIN 5 and PIN17 position
4) Put your positive lead to PIN16 and negative lead to PIN5.
5) Write down the voltage on the digital multimeter
6) Check if the voltage you from PIN16 and PIN 5 is same in step 1.
7) Find the light green wire with a blue tracer band of PIN10 of the OBDII connector.
8) If the voltage differs in step 1 and step 6, the problem is probably with your battery.
9) If the battery is damaged or broken, please replace your battery.
