VXDIAG Porsche Piwis3 Developer Mode shell config. update tips

Porsche Piwis3 Developer Mode:

The Developer Mode in Piwis 3 is not available when you update the shell, coz you lose the menu diagnostics configuration to switch between regular and developer mode,
Problem solved if you copy the old file com.porsche.piwis.Shell.exe.config

Here is how to update the shell config. and get the diagnostic configuration boxes back, on the system tab.

After a successful update from 37.250.20 you will loose the two above mentioned boxes from the System tab.
If you did not loose them, then the [PIDT] diagnostic software did not update completely.
So it’s a good thing to loose it !

Go to C:\PiwisApps\Shel\ and carefuly edit with notepad   this file –> com.porsche.piwis.Shell.exe.config

after the update the PIDT section shows up in green, after U edit it it will be blue.

First picture shows, red underlined, 2 places, beginning and the end of the green section, what to remove.
On top [Line 568 on mine] U delete  these four symbols       !–<     on the bottom [line 603 on mine] U delete these 3 symbols   –>
Then U save the config file.
Restart the PC and your Diagnostic config box for 991,981,970 and Diagnostic config for other models RE-APPEAR.

rm996 has the solution how get the developer functionality back up and running, !!! PM him.

[Similar solution for the lost with the Update Wiring Diagrams ]

Another tip might help you also.

It’s how to enable Developer Mode for Piwis 3

Developer mode is a special Piwis program that allow a lot of advanced coding normally reserved only to Factory.

With this function you will have a tool that can do more than software of official Porsche Dealer.
For example, you can reprogram all ECUs completely offline.

How to use Piwis Developer Mode:

Install winrar and winhex on your computer.

-1-locate the file c:\program files\porsche\PIDT_P_MIG_DLSS3\pidt\plugins\de.dsa.pidt.datatype.jar and copy it on your desktop in order to modify it.

Open it with winrar,in the wirar windows locate the file

\de\dsa\pidt\datatypes\utils\Helper$1.class and drag it on your destop , delete it from the archive after the copy, keep the winrar window open.

Open Helper$1.class on your desktop with winhex and goto offset E81, replace 9A by A7 and save.

Drag back the save file on the winrar windows still open and click OK.Close winrar

Copy the new file de.dsa.pidt.datatype.jar you just made in

c:\program files\porsche\PIDT_P_MIG_DLSS3\pidt\plugins, overwrite it.

copy the file aftersales.sig on your desktop and rename it development.sig.Copy this file back in the folder

Do exactly the same method given above with the folder c:\program files\porsche\PIDT_P_MIG_DLSS3 with its own files.

To transform it in developer :

Settings

Diagnostic configuration

981-991, mode, operating mode, E= development, P= production, V= aftersales ( Car Diagnostic Tool piwis)

Other models line, mode, operating mode, E= development, P= production, V= aftersales ( regular piwis)

This method to switch between regular and developer works only with my backup and will not work anymore after

an update.

Piwis 3 Compare With Piwis Tester 2

As the Piwis III for Porsche diagnostic & programming released, most client inquiry for the Piwis 3 to replace Piwis tester ii for Porsche new models. Some client asks what’s the difference between Piwis Tester II & Piwis 3. whether the Piwis II work with the Piwis 3 software? Below Piwis-Tester-2.com share one client opinion for this.
Purchase Piwis 2 or Piwis 3?

piwis 2 & piwis 3 comparison

It may be an interesting subject, I’m sure there is some information about this out here.

First of all, the Piwis 2 interface is a lot more robust piece of equipment, compared to the cheesy and flimsy looking and feeling interface produced by Actia for Piwis 3.

Originally designed for the VW ODIS system, the VAS 6154 VCI is quite the service needy piece. [Breaks easily] not a hard comparison to make.
Is it worth to purchase Piwis 3 replace Piwis 2 now? Can the Piwis 2 compatible with Piwis 3 Software?

This answer for the question of whether Piwis 3 software can work with Piwis II Samtec HSX Interface from Piwis-Tester-2.com?

Secondly, I thought the Piwis 3 for Porsche went cheap. [my humble opinion, way below Porsche standard!]

At the same time, there is a service from Poland and Ukraine [If I remember correctly] that can make the Samtec based Piwis 2 VCI from Piwis-Tester-2.com, to work with Piwis 3.

Unfortunately, their charges are just as much and frankly cost prohibitive as the New Piwis 3 VCI. 2-3-4 thousand dollars for these VCIs is simply not reasonable for small operators.

They will come down in price just like the Chinese VCIs did for all manufacturers as the markets get saturated and folks are not buying them as eagerly as at the beginning of the Piwis 3 had.

They will get as much money as the market bares. [as much as people are willing to pay]

Your more pointed answers will not come in this tread Ibi. This is Cars Fan’s money-making tread, he will not volunteer any information, but if U start your own tread, U may be more likely to find out stuff.

Regards,

What Do the Piwis 3 updates replace Piwis 2?

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 display 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. Piwis 3 can code Values 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 work 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)

Any question about the Piwis 3 or Piwis 3 and Porsche Piwis Tester 2 comparison reviews, welcome to feedback to us.

SPS Programming Abrites AVDI or GM MDI

Just information for you to make a wise purchase of GM scan tools for SPS programming: (here, I focus on SPS GDS2 on Abrites j2534 and GM MDI)

In the past ( few years ago when I bought my AVDI )

When I bought my tool I used Global Tis v32 and was able to do SPS Programming in my Y20DTH that I have at my desk for tests. All went OK.

After a while during a year of AMS I received the new drivers but because I didn’t like how the AVDI is working and because I make some money using it I dece to upgrade to genuine OEM tool for the brands that AVDI can work.

After a while I bought a genuine MDI.

And after years I did the tests because my friend who has a issue doing SPS Programming. And he asked me to check if its ok at me. And using same ecu that I did SPS Programming alright in the past then now was blocked. So I did and had the same issues as him.

He because has the AMS he received the new drivers after he talked with Abrites company.
For me AVDI its did it job long time ago and I don’t need to buy a new AMS. So I am using when I do what “she” can do.

My friend asked Abrites to fix this issue and they sent to him new drivers versions and then he could do a SPS Programming as well.

But take care this is not working in any ecu.

So my advise for you is to buy a good GM MDI but not VXDIAG VCX NANO and you will be fine.

In my opinion for GM cars and if you wanna do SPS Programming and diagnostics using Tech2win and GDS2 the better is a GM MDI – a genuine or good clone one, or a cheaper cable like a genuine or good clone Mongoose GM Pro2

Or a J2534 tool that its approved by GM.

Maybe for diagnostic FVDI ABRITES Commander is still good but for programming it will not for sure. But if you wish it you can use it and when you will block first ecu you will remember my opinion.

AVDI I hadn’t used anymore for diagnostic so I cannot tell you if its ok to use it in newer car with GDS2. Actually I have no new drivers for a long.

How to get GM TECH2 CANdi module to work

The Candi Module should not plugged into your GM Tech 2 unless you’re working on a later car ..generally 2005 plus. Olders car from 96 should NOT have the Candi Module attached.

OBD I only has 1 ground, so 12 pin adapter connects signal and chassis ground to the Tech 2 cable.

OBD II has chassis and signal ground and they are connected in the cars wiring.

How I was trying to get GM TECH2 CANdi module to work:
Nothing on CANdi end of cable.
tech2-candi-module-to-work-1

Boot screen not showing CANdi present, diagnostics for CANdi says it isn’t seen.
tech2-candi-module-to-work-2

Here I connected OBD I adapter to end of CANdi cable:
OBD I adapter connected.

CANdi module shows up at boot screen.

Tech 2 programs Hummer H2 above 2007

Tech 2 Scan Tool on Hummer H2 above 2007… Possible to do programming? what to do in that case?

Hummer-H2-2007

Yes! Actually it does the programming just fine on newer than 2007 GM vehicles!
You must:
Pay for an ACDelco TDS subscription for vehicles above 2007 and you would use the CANDI module that comes with many of the Tech2’s for working with CAN bus vehicles. You can subscribe for as little as two days for $55.

https://www.acdelcotds.com/acdelco/action/subscribehome

This is ONLY needed if you want to program or update the software in a module.

ALL of the build in diagnostics and testing for vehicles up to 2013 works without the subscription or the older TIS2000 software. You only need those for doing actual programming. The older TIS2000 software – that is what has the programming was discontinued in 2007. TIS2000 does have the actual programming for all vehicles up to 2007. After 2007 GM went to the TDS system.

You can also:(for diagnostics and programming)

Get a newer style GM MDI or MDI 2 for diagnostics and programming. The catch with those. They have NO screen or built in software and you must pay for a subscription from from ACDelco TDS to use an MDI.

Other brand units, a very select few can do actual programming and use the pass-through method. NONE have the diagnostics that the actual Tech2 or MDI (with the subscription) will have. Check with Autel and see if they have the full diagnostics and re-calibration for the rear air suspension on a Hummer H2. Not going to happen, there is too little demand for them to hack and reverse engineer that particular bit of code in a Tech2 to figure out the diagnostics and then write programming for that for their tool.

For programming, you also need to have TIS2000 running on a computer or pay GM for a 24 month subscription for their TIS2WEB (Vehicle Programming) for $40 https://www.acdelcotds.com/acdelco/action/subscribehome
The computer will need a serial port for downloading the programming to the Tech2 for programming your vehicle.

How to do programming wit Tech 2:

The way programming works is you connect the Tech2 to the vehicle and tell it you want to program a module.
It interrogates all of the modules on the vehicle for the current versions and the VIN number.
You then connect it to the computer running TIS2000, GlobalTIS or TIS2WEB subscription and select programming in the computer.
It reads the Tech2 for the vehicle info and then presents you with a list of software for all of the modules and shows you which have updated software.

Recommend:

You’d better only do one module at a time which is a good bit more back and forth but safer.
The computer then loads the update to the Tech2. You take that back to the vehicle and connect it and it then programs the module.
The best, most reliable and safest method:
To use a long enough serial cable (its uses 9 pin serial adapters with an ethernet cable to make the cable longer – so you can just use a longer network cable) and do pass-through programming. In that method the process is the same but you leave the Tech2 connected to both the computer and the vehicle at the same time. Once you select programming on the Tech2 then go to the computer and you can immediately update each module right from the computer.

There is a slightly more updated version of standalone TIS2000 floating around on the web which has additional updates that has software updates for vehicles through 2009 as well. I know just using that TIS2000 both GMC truck and 2003 H2 both had a bunch of software updates available to be programmed all of which fix small issues or improve certain aspects.

One example in on the older single compressor air ride like 2003. Those would run and make small adjustments a LOT more often than needed and the software update fixed that.

On the H2 the rear air ride is also one to be very careful of for doing software updates though. For example, 2003 came with the earlier style single compressor but if it were to fail a dealership would replace it with the newer style dual pump compressor. Programming would still think its the original style and would attempt to program it and that would actually cause it to fail. TIS2000, (Global, Web, etc) will warn you about this sort of thing though so just heed all warnings and follow instructions and its fine.

The programming aspect is not needed or required to use the Tech2. The OBD2 Scanner Tech2 still gives you a TON of diagnostics and tests that NO other OBD device has including things like the air ride module, detailed BCM functions, basically you can control and test every computer module in the vehicle.
