How to program key fob using Tech 2 scan tool

obd2lily | 16 February, 2019 04:16

You will need a GM Tech 2 Scan Tool with it’s 32MB card (updated) and the CANdi module. I have seen the pair sell for as cheap as $224 on Obd2tool.com and as much as $3000 off eBay.

Btw, if you look for a decent tool for use only, it’s ok to have a cheap but functional china clone.

Seems like the old answers are a cheaper and easier solution.
1. Have a GM dealer do it
2. Have a locksmith do it
3. Buy the Dorman part that comes with a programming module for less than $80.

Those options are cheaper if you do not have a Tech 2. This is why you will expect to pay for a Tech 2.

Which is like saying it is cheaper to take my car to the shop and have them change the water pump for $100 instead of me going to sears and spending $250 on a cool set of craftsman tools and a toolbox and doing the work myself. Personally, I am heading to Sears, because those tools will keep on saving me money for the rest of my life.

Yes, the Tech 2 does other things besides programming a key fob and you really would have to be a chevy buff / mechanic before it would be worth buying one. The tech 2 is not for everyone.

The Tech 2 is a powerful, versatile hand-held diagnostic computer, designed to help diagnose and repair automotive electronic systems.The Tech 2 supports the changes in the on-board electronic systems for model years 1992 to 2013. With the addition of the CAN Diagnostic Interface (CANdi) module, Tech 2 will support GM on-board electronic systems thru 2013.

The CANdi is an in-cable module that works with existing Tech 2 components including the VCI, cables and adapters to add CAN diagnostic capability to the Tech 2 tester. The CANdi module is fully backward compatible with current Tech 2 functionality and operates transparently when diagnosing non-CAN-equipped vehicles.

The Tech 2 has since been replaced with GM MDI

How to Use BMW EF Scanner Read BMW ISN Code for CAS1-3+

obd2lily | 29 January, 2019 07:34

This article show a guide on how to use bmw diagnostic tool E/F Scanner to read BMW ISN coding for BMW CAS1-CAS3+ system.

BMW E/F Scanner Interface:

V2018.12 BMW E/F Scanner II Full Version (Recommend)
2013.07V E/F SCANNER For BMW

The BMW Explorer program has a possibility of reading a code of synchronization of ISN (all versions of CAS1 CAS2 CAS3 CAS3+).

Go to the CAS control unit, “Additional functions”, “Reading ISN”

In the opened window ISN will be displayed.

If the machine is equipped with the EWS3 system where 2 bytes of the constant part and the change are used, it will be displayed in the window 2 bytes of ISN DME (the upper 3 windows will be empty), if necessary they can be changed.

If the machine uses the EWS4 system, then 16 bytes of constant synchronization are used and there is no variable part.

Also after 2006, CAS3 uses an anti-theft code for EGS

If there is an EWS3 system in the car, then this code is the same with the engine control unit, if the machine already has an EWS4 system, then EGS uses separate 2 bytes

The program is in place of the engine ISN, it will display the gearbox code .. as in the picture below

BMW E-sys vs BMW Carly vs BimmerCode

BMW Esys vs Carly vs BimmerCode

Esys vs Carly

Carly: not for coding; E sys: coding success

I have been using Carly on my F30 for over a year, but not for coding, as that’s still not supported on Android. Carly can read and clear diagnostic codes and a host of other things that E-Sys isn’t meant to do. I recommend going to their website and checking on its capabilities there. From what they’ve told me, their F-chassis coding will probably be limited to the KOMBI module (dashboard items), but it may expand to include HU-ENTRY/CIC/NBT/NBT2 and FEM_BODY in the future.

It’s a simple connect (via their BT adapter), read coding data, select features to activate or deactivate (or change values), then push back into the module. Same as E-Sys but with a much more simplified interface. It allows you to save the module coding data as a backup, just like E-Sys. It worked great for coding on E-chassis cars, so I’m hoping it will be the same for F-Chassis, although they’ve had quite a bit of time to get things working and so far, coding with Android still isn’t fully tested yet. I’ve since used E-Sys for coding my F30 and the wife’s F23.

BMW E-Sys works better than Carly app in Fxx coding

I used Carly for my wife’s previous E88 128 convertible and it worked great – no having to do one item at a time, etc. Not quite sure what the problem is with the F-cars, because the principle is the same – read coding data, modify, write coding data. Apparently the new “network” and whatever read/write protocol that implies is far different than the CANbus of the E-series cars.

By comparison, E-Sys has improved vastly over the past year or two and coding both my F30 and the wife’s new F23 was relatively easy, particularly since you can save the coding data, disconnect, take the computer inside to do the modifications on a copy of the saved data, then reconnect and push the data back using the modified file. No more sitting in the car searching for the feature to be coded while the engine’s idling.

Carly adapter– Bluetooth; E sys ENET cable– Ethernet to OBD

Actually, the Carly adapter is Bluetooth. E-Sys looks for a connection via the ethernet port on your laptop. It won’t recognize BT at all – at least, I’ve not been able to make it do so. If your laptop doesn’t have an ethernet/RJ45 connector, you’ll need to find a device that does. Pretty sure that you can’t use a USB-to-ethernet adapter, either.

BimmerCode vs Esys

Bimmercode plus vgate = ?50 (roughly)
E-sys + pro launcher = $50 for 2.5 years

BimmerCode for quick convenience
ESys for fully featured use.

PSdZData is for use with E_Sys, which is for F/G/I Series cars only. For E-Series cars, the tools are all different, different software, and different cable.

main data path 1 C:\John Deere\CF_EN201405_05 CF_EN201405_05

and equal for other dvds. Service Advisor must to automaticaly detect this version and load data base from discs

(BIG THANKS to cquique07 from MH forum)

John Deere Service Advisor 4 on a machine with win 10 64bit:

1/you must have enough disk space to download the full set of February 2016 data base (52Gb); it comes with seven iso images and the SA4.0 image and a February 2015 update which you don’t need and of course the activator.

2/use an iso mounter software to mount the SA4.0 image to a virtual drive.

3/browse to the setup file in your virtual drive and run it as administrator

follow the steps (it will prompt for a username and password use those of your windows user account if you’re under 7-8 or 10 windows version)

it will take a while! don’t turn off the computer and don’t worry about the incompatibility messages that windows will show you during the installation process specially for the SQL 2005 server installation.

4/after completing the installation of the SA4.0 reboot the computer and set back the system time to mars 2016.

5/mount the first iso image of the data discs to a virtual drive, browse the sauce folder and run setup file as administrator; wait for it to complete the installation it will launch the SA 4.2.005 at this step you may have a message that the SA 4.2.005 is not capable of launching the search engine don’t worry close it and go to task manager (ctr+alt+sup)
click on services and look for the LightweightIDOL service if it’s stopped than run it.
6/run the activator as administrator and activate the Service Advisor; don’t use the prolongation tool at this step!.
7/now go to the task manager again and look for the SAupdater service and disable it.
8/re-open the Service Advisor, click the accept button for the license agreement, and configure the path for the data access you can use the mapping for a virtual drive choice to map each data disc image to a virtual drive it will take more than an hour to load all the data disk.
it will ask you for scheduling the update choose the end of the week and create the task.
9/Now close the SA, use the activator again but this time just use the prolongation tool choose 9000 days or whatever you want.
10/Look for the task scheduler and run it, choose the SAupdate task and modify the time for the task to begin to 2030 or whatever you want.
11/reboot the computer and set back the time machine to the actual time, launch SA and everything must work ok.

if you have any trouble than you messed something just clean up and reinstall.
Still fail to install John Deere Service Advisor software?
You can have John Deere Service Advisor full software:
John Deere Service Advisor 4.0 Agriculture
John Deere Service Advisor 2.8 CF (Construction and Forestry)
John Deere Service Advisor 4.0 CCE (Commercial and Consumer Equipment)

All is installed in a hard drive disk (HDD) before shipping and verified to work no issues through professionals. So when you received it, just replace/insert the HDD into your laptop (Windows XP, Win 7,Win 8 and Win 10- all ok), then you can use John Deere Service Advisor EDL V2 to view service manuals, use DTAC (Technical Assistance Center) data, make diagnostics, readings, tests and calibrations, re-program controllers, etc.

How to Change John Deere Speed Limit with PLD File Editor

obd2lily | 31 December, 2018 10:38

John Deere PayLoad (PLD) File Editor – this is Developer level tool, that allows you to change factory parameters in the PLD files using John Deere Service Advisor.

John Deere Service Advisor,John Deere Diagnostic Kit,John deere diagnostic software,John Deere scanner,john deere service manual,john deere edl v2,john deere edl2,John Deere Service,Advisor EDL,V2 Diagnostic Kit,Electronic Data Link v2,

With John Deere Service Advisor PLD File Encryptor/Decryptor you can:

-Decrypt PayLoad (PLD) file to txt/ini format
-Modify PLD file expiration
-Modify PLD factory options such as speed limit (for example change 40 km/h to 50 km/h)
-Adjust PLD file to different product serial
-Encrypt PLD file
-Program controller with modified PLD using Service Advisor
-Support Windows XP

Example: How to change speed limit with  pld files?

Q1:

Question about payload files:

I have pld files of my tractor (6330P) 11 in total.

I see in bottom of each files info about my tractor (option, serial number etc)

Question: My goal is up the speed limit from 40km to 50 km. I think I have to change OPTION=3 to OPTION=5, but do I have to edit each 11 pld file?

A1:
You were right about the speed limit:
you can change OPTION=3 to OPTION=4 or any other you need.
Speed_30kmh = 1;
Speed_35kmh = 2;
Speed_40kmh = 3;
Speed_50kmh = 4;
Speed_ECO = 5;
Speed_NoiseRed_OOS = 6;

For R models the line is different. ROADSPEEDLIMIT=3 change to ROADSPEEDLIMIT=5 or any other you need.

var RoadSpeedLimit_30 = “1”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_35 = “2”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_3840 = “3”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_40E = “4”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_50 = “5”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_50E = “6”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_55 = “7”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_60 = “8”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_60E = “9”;

After you change it, sometimes you still need to lift the speed manually through the display (depending on the tractor model)

You only need to reprogram transmission controller for that.
If you reprogrammed all of them, some settings might have went to default so you might get up to 5 fault codes that you need to configure with SA.

Q2:
Does it work with SA 4.2?
A2:

Service Advisor is just a tool to use pld. Pld editor works without SA.

Q3:
I have a question about trying to up the power of a 6330 to a 6430. If I compare the engine pld of both tractor they are identical (just the info in the bottom is different) So I don’t know how it could up the power if all the code is the same??

A3:
most pld files are made for various models, the info at the bottom determines which part of the pld file will be used for programming. For example:
PRODUCT_MODEL_NO=6115
PERFORMANCE_OPTION_PART_NO=R546973
FACTORY_OPTIONS=RE570443

Q4: Do you have John Deere PLD file editor for sale?

A4: Sorry, we don’t have PLD files. You can search or download from google.

Test with VAS5054A, Conclusion, Recommendation

obd2lily | 23 December, 2018 06:58

Here is my story of Odis 4.4.10.
Link: thanks to GUSS shared links at Obd2tool.com
VAS 5054A and odis 4.4.10:

One of my 2 vas5054a has original amb2300 but does not work with odis-s 4.4.10.
I get a ODS2522E that hardware is not supported. (same as the one without original amb2300)

I have tested amb2300 with softing edic configuration manager. Also tested with PDU api application. All tests ok. Configurator manager did not work with vas5054a without amb2300

vas5054a-odi-error-1 vas5054a-odi-error-2

Then, tested working PDU api and tried to solves the issue however I am not happy with the result. In theory original amb2300 should work.

Tests:
1. 1.20.41 does not work at all with either of my 2 interfaces. So back to 1.20.42
2. Enabled buzzer just to check that my amb2300 is original. Enabled.
3. Tried to connect with bluetooth (amb2300 interface). Laptop connected successfully. Tried to connect odis-s with car and started buzzing continuously and then an error appeared, buzz continued.
In English
there is no mcd project available

I am ditching odis-4.4.10.

Before 4.2.3 test will test 4.3.3 to check if that works, in order to check if the problem is hardware or software.

vas5054a-odi-error-3

Then i was advised to make another folder Softing.ori  put ther new Pdu:

vas5054a-odi-error-4 vas5054a-odi-error-5

vas5054a-odi-error-6 vas5054a-odi-error-7 vas5054a-odi-error-8

Did not work but good try. That made me think that PDU API is the problem.

However found out that VW has locked the D-PDU API directory location (or file names) and managed to install at the 1.20.042 location the 1.20.041 pdu api and renamed 3 files to …..1.20.042 (2 xml 1 dll same as DPDU api test application 3 files mentioned).

now it works, actually tested just vas5054a with fake bluetooth and works.

This is not a straight forward procedure, however after manipulation of D-pdu api (1.20.042 vecom, the 3 files) odis 4.4.10 works.

My amb2300 is original since I have downgraded it to 1.20.041 firmware (with the D-PDU API) test application) however it does not work out of the box with odis 4.4.10. Will test the second one tomorrow.

My conclusion:

First, that pdu api directory (file name) is locked.

Second, amb2300 original does  not work as tested. (problem with 1.20.042 pdu API driver specifically Softing/1.20.042/VeCom/VAS5054a files as seen in second solution below).

Other solutions:
1. Test the PDU API 1.20.042 found in odis 4.3.3 (check pdu_api_root.xml is correct 1.20.042)
2. Want to test original 1.20.042 but to replace in vecom vas5054 folder from 1.20.041 folder. (No other changes, check again pdu_api_root.xml is for 1.20.042 )

Test performed:
1. Tested second vas5054a with original amb2300. All tests with usb and bluetooth pass with first solution above. Note in this test I used amb2300 firmware 1.20.041 since I used pdu api 1.20.041 renamed folder to 1.20.042 and 3 files to 1.20.042 as discussed above. Bluetooth works too.

2. Second solution tested with original amb2300. (not tested with clone but most probably will work)
b) reinstall pdu api 1.20.042 pdu api
b) Replace vas5054 folder (from 1.20.041) in softing/1.20.042/vecom/vas5054.
c) update amb2300 firmware to 1.20.042 (this is the difference from solution 1) since I used pdu api 1.20.042.
d) Both usb and bluetooth work. Amazing… I have original amb2300 (but with fake serial number).

Buy xtool x100 pad2 or obdstar tool

obd2lily | 18 November, 2018 06:27

 

XTOOL X100 PAD2 or obdstar tool (X300 PRO3 and obdstar dp plus). Which one has better coverage and support?

How come obdstar products are more popular and has frequent updates but xtool products are slow in updates and least popular?

Buy xtool x100 pad2 or obdstar tool?

xtool-x100-pad2

Here are the answers:

PS: Quoted from ray-ray.

ray-ray answers the 1st question: Story is obdstar and xtool was a joint company for many years. They play a game chicken or the egg who came first? Obdstar start the company in 2007 and xtool in 2010. Once again who came first chicken or the egg? I’ve been working for free for 6 month now for Xtooltech.

ray-ray answers the 2nd question: If you look at old post Xtooltech had no sale in china or on eBay. I ask member here on the forum if anyone used ps80 or PS90 PRO little to no feedback. I ask my Chinese broker to look and buy a unit for me to test. They refuse to sell to any Chinese broker. That was perfect solution I want to come out with something new with a company that was will to bring in engineers to the USA. The company was part of Obdstar that did most of their sales in commodities. After the break up they focus on heavy duty diagnostics. I went to sema last year in Las Vegas, next to sema there was diagnostics show call apex. There I meet the company and there engineers, I made a deal that day. Xtooltech learn that day that there was too much competition in diagnostics, and very little in immobilizer. I have work on making the tool better, I have not stop.

My goal is to keep developing and improving their tool (there is no money Xtooltech is paying me). Ken the owner has tried to pay me for my work and I have refuse. My mission is to make it a great tool.. what is my reward to be remember.

Xtool ps80 or ps90 or Pad2?
Xtool ps80: not sold in China.
Xtool PS90: recently starts to authorize the Chinese dealer to sell.
Xtool Pad2: The authorized Chinese dealer has stock, it is working and cheaper. The users from Brazil, Mexico, Argentina very use Xtool Pad2 and give good feedback (Read posts: Xtool Pad2 feedback and Xtool PS90 Vs PS80 Vs AutoProPad /Lite)
