How to install Mitsubishi MUT 3 Software China Clone

The Mitsubishi MUT3 software with the Chinese usually comes as two directories on one DVD. The first one is the program installation, which must be installed first. It is named something like with PRExxxxx, with “xxxxx” indicating the program version. The installer program, Mut3Check.exe, can be run from the sub-directory on the distribution DVD.

Note that if you have a local security password policy on the computer, the PRG install may fail as the SQL installation does not use a complex password.

After the Car ECU Programmer Mut3 Check.exe program is installed and the computer has rebooted, you can install the database updates. Typically in e sub-directory CD3Exxxxx, where “xxxxx” is the version of the update. Only ONE version of Mut2Check.exe can be installed without removing any existing version while MANY updates can be added.

In my experience, the Db update MUST be executed from a root directory of a CD or DVD, NOT from a sub-directory. I got all kinds of “Failed to install” & “failed to update” errors when running the update from the VD sub-dir.

Burn a new CD with the CD3Exxxx files in the root, so ECUUpdateJudg.exe is in the root of the CD. Then run ECUUpdateJudg.exe from the CD.

Look here:

Mitsubishi MUT 3 VCI Reviews: Trials, Tribulations and Tests on 08 MR

Some of the Mitsubishi MUT3 functions are passworded and those passwords are [usually] matched to the MDB password fields included in the updates. Which vary by distribution, version and locale. Get a MS Access password cracker and run it on the MDB files in your distribution to learn the passwords.

The Teach-In Function requires a certain version, or later, of the TCU firmware to be installed in the desired TCU. The Auto diagnostic tool MUT3 can do this and the newer firmware files are included in the MUT3 software distribution for 2010 and later but must be manually copied over to the computer. Until that TCU version is in the TCU, the MUT 3 will not display the Teach-In option.

How to Select a Personal OBD 2 Reader?

It may not be as easy as one may think when setting out to select personal OBD 2 reader for your car. This is because each car is unique and may need to be treated as such. However the whole how to process will be dependent on some areas which one needs to cover.

Though the OBD 2 readers may come in all shades of color and sizes, the right one is just within your reach if you only tried. Our guide is therefore focused at giving you a one on one account of how to go about selecting the right OBD 2 reader for your car.

The confidence you are bound to experience will definitely improve your car use experience. In addition, selecting the right OBD 2 reader is important in enabling you keep safe and sound while driving.

Learning this selection process alone has made many people escape from the numerous problems they would have encountered by getting an OBD 2 reader which does not fit their car needs.

Some of the areas to cover include;

Know the user language– because some of the OBD 2 is not multilingual in nature, using them may prove to be quite challenging and so may require the buyer to look carefully when selecting. Choose an OBD reader which conforms to your catchment language.
Know how the cheap diagnostic scanner of your car operates– for starters, you may need to know whether your car is compliant. Most modern cars are compliant with the possibility of accommodating different car readers.

In addition to that, ensure that the car has the required area where the OBD 2 device will be easily connected. This will be good for the sake of convenience and ease of use.

Get a wider network– in the selection process; do not be fixed at one item look for a reader which is capable of diversifying. The most important area is to ensure that the OBD 2 reader has the capacity to get the required data readings.

Most modern cars are compliant with the possibility of accommodating different car readers.

Most modern cars are compliant with the possibility of accommodating different car readers.

What would be nice to look at in this case is in the area of the codes. The reader should have the ability to get the manufacturer specific as well as generic codes for you. These need to be wide range in nature.

This network would be best if you sought it from the different sources which include reading of the user reviews and connecting with friends. Other areas where you may visit would be visiting the manufacturer sites directly.

In addition, selecting a reader with a wide range of capacities may just be what you are looking for. The best case would be a reader which can perform tasks of car code reading while attempting to assist with the repair process as well.

The wide coverage also needs to consider things like the coverage of the several user protocols which are known to be standard in nature. All the above information can be evident if you look at some of the features of your OBD 2 reader.

You need to know which of the devices suits your car

It would be nice if you just took your time to acquaint yourself with the latest trends on the diverse car engine protocols which are in use at any given moment in time. It will definitely save the buyer a lot of stress.

The features– though each of the Professional Diagnostic Tool come with its own features, what is important is that the reader needs to have some of the latest features just like you need to have your car updates.

In addition, the features need to be easy to read and use. For instance, the OBD 2 reader’s memory needs to be large enough to store data for the future if needed. In addition, the visual areas like the screen must be clear and eye friendly.

Check for relevance– most users buy the OBD 2 readers without knowing which of the areas it will be attending to. This act alone is enough to subject the reader to irrelevance. In some areas, the tool may be so efficient but working on the wrong problem.
Shop for the OBD 2 readers– the range of OBD 2 devices in the market alone is enough to give you an advantage when selecting the readers. You need to know which of the devices suits your car and whether it will be a standalone or the ones which rely on the car engine.

It would be nice if you went around and shopped for a reader which has the specifications fitting your car. What however may need to be taken into account is the universal nature of some of the OBD 2 readers.

Getting the how to information on the OBD 2 readers is hard in the market. Most areas which concern the use of the readers are quite popular when compared. Reviews concern themselves mostly with areas to do with the functional strengths and weaknesses.

If you were seeking some relevant information, then you are surely in the right place. This resource therefore makes it among the relevant information you need to seek before settling for any obd2 code reader purchase.

Flexibly Adaptable to the Relevant Task

DTS Monaco is part of the Diagnostic Tool Set product family and is based on the DTS Base System. Monaco stands for Modular Analyzer for Vehicle Communication. A clearly laid out start page enables simple and fast access to the functions required most frequently. The actual workspace is divided into two: one area with a fixed layout and one with layouts that you can toggle between. A status display below shows communication server messages. The various functions are realized using special, configurable interface elements. These “HMI Controls” can be arranged freely in the layouts in configuration mode and comprehensively configured.


Early Detection of Problems and Errors

In execution mode, a configured workspace can be “started”. In doing so individual functions can be started automatically and communication can be established in advance if so required. Self-generated test sequences enable both simple and very complex function tests. This makes it possible to detect, and remedy, communication problems and function errors at an early stage. Communication data and test results can be documented in entirety in the process.


Fast Results

For typical use scenarios predefined templates including an universal database for the OBD self-diagnosis as well as various protocol templates (WWH-OBD, J1939-73 among others) are supplied. In Demonstration mode, all functions can be tested, even without an interface and a license, using a detailed example including simulation. Furthermore, the tool has a completely integrated OTX runtime for running complex test sequences in accordance with ISO 13209. An authoring tool for creating such OTX sequences can be started directly from DTS Monaco.
