ICarScan X431 Tool Available again

It’s back! And it appears they now have software for your iPhone (besides the already available Android software.)

It’s been NLA for a while – but today on FaceBook they announced it was back with a new one. You can find it at: https://www.obd2tool.com/goods-5052-Launch+X431+iCarScan+Bluetooth+Diagnostic+Scanner+for+Android.html

What’s it do? Probably everything that Durametric Pro does for a fraction of the price, with unlimited number of cars – and software for LOTS of other car manufacturers. A much more universal tool, having detailed diagnostics for our Cayennes. Cost – $158. With a choice of 5 car manufacturers software included. It uses the “Launch” software package – and they are a very well known maker of high-price diagnostics tools.

I own a Durametric. I haven’t used it in about a year – since I got the ICARSCAN.

ICarScan is much easier to use than the Durametric since it works with my Android smartphone, no need to boot up a computer and plug it into the computer. It connects via Bluetooth to the phone. I carry it in the Cayenne since it’s tiny and can be used anytime I have my phone along (about 100% of the time.) So far I haven’t found anything I can’t do with it that could be done with the Porsche Piwis ii. Doesn’t mean there isn’t – but I haven’t found it yet. It resets all the different service reminders. Resets adaptatations. Reads out real-time values and can plot them. Can read and clear codes stored in any of the vehicle modules.

DISCLAIMER: I get nothing for posting this except hoping to encourage the company to continue producing it, since that means there will be software updates for the one I already own. I like it. I think it’s good value. YMMV – but I don’t think so.

ADDITIONAL INFO: (05/05/17) People have reported that the iOS application apparently is difficult to impossible to get working. Before buying Launch X431 Scan Tool – if all you have is an iPhone – I’d suggest reading the thread and talking to some of the people who have tried it on iOS. Other people have mentioned success or difficulty getting the Android application working. I suspect part of the problem is the number of versions of Android on the user market. If you’re using an Android phone, or tablet – it might be worth checking or asking who got it working with what. I also should note – it appears I’m running an earlier version of the software on my Android phone (Droid-Turbo-II) and tablet (Verizon Ellipsis-7). I have not tried downloading the new version since I don’t like to muck about with a working thing. Again – check and ask people what works if you have a concern. My final warning – communications with the vendor are almost non-existent. When I first got mine (about a year ago) I emailed them about a problem getting it to install on my tablet (which apparently isn’t listed as compatible with the software at the Google store) – and got a few brief replies. Since then – I’ve emailed asking about renewing my subscription – and have gotten no answer. Despite my “subscription” expiring – the software I originally downloaded (5 vehicle brands and the other free stuff) continues to work. It has also updated the firmware on my dongle despite my subscription being expired. What I have not done is open the store feature of it to see if there is a subscription renewal option there. I may do that sometime. Or not. Right now – it’s working fine for me.

How to Resolve BMW ICOM ISTAD license expired Error

obd2lily | 26 July, 2018 10:40

Many BMW ICOM users will no doubt have encountered a situation where they have had Rheingold ISTA/D running successfully on their computers, only to later encounter the situation where they can no longer access the software and get a license expired message. The majority of suggestions to resolve this situation found on the internet suggest that users adjust the bios setting of their machines to a date before the original license expiry date but as the result of an enquiry from another user, I decided to post my resolution of this problem (which has been tested and found to work on machines running both Windows 10 and XP Operating systems):-

1. Run Regedit
2. Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
3. left click SOFTWARE
4. left click BMWGROUP
5. left click ISPI
6. left click Rheingold
7. on the right hand panel of the screen, left click Licence and choose Modify
8. Be careful to modify only the entries on this line as described…use the left arrow key to scroll along the line to a date format entry, which is followed by the words Package Expire and change the date to 2072-09-20

9. After you have changed the package expiration date, continue to use the left arrow key to scroll further back along the line until you find another date format entry, which is followed by the word Expiration (this date will be identical to the original entry that you altered during the last step) – change this date to 2072-09-20

10.When you have completed the above changes, collapse the registry editor back to show only the HKEY menus, then close the registry editor and restart your computer.

11. CONGRATULATIONS, your Rheingold licence is now current until 2072-09-20. Note when editing the expiration date for ISTA, you should maintain the original date format (usually YYYY MM DD) – as some packages use an BMW ICOM A2 and some use a hypenated seperator for date entry values.

If you can’t find it at that registry entry, try here-
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\BMWGroup\ISPI\Rheingold

How to get ODIS 4.3.3 For VAS 5054A

obd2lily | 21 July, 2018 07:05

Bad clones of VAS5054A not gonna work with this version 4.3.3.

Even those that works with ODIS 4.2.3.

17-1

I mean, VAS5054a clones work on 4.3.3 with PDU 041 only. But not working with PDU 042

For bad clones just need to downgrade PDU from 042 to 041

Remove EDIC 1.20.42 from PC

Then install this older EDIC attached:

https://mega.nz/#!URV1nLwa!mn6xoEUmQeyCwhes1tDB6qvp20trgDUYy6BVNxRnLUk

If you should check post install (before you plug in your device) in Add/Remove programs you should see Softing D-PDU API V1.20.042 EDIC_D_PDU_API_OE/OS
Remove these from PC and reboot (just in case)
Install the EDIC provided above with version 041
Then plug in your device and test

I myself have not tested the above, but I think I works

But if you want use ODIS easily for VAS 5054A clone head, choose ODIS 4.2.3 From obd2tool.com. It’s a tested version, confirmed to work no issues

Good luck!

How to use SDconnect C4 + XentryDAS on Macbook Pro

obd2lily | 30 June, 2018 21:14

I’m running Xentry/DAS 2018.05 (not OpenShell) on my MacBook Pro together with SDconnect C4 via LAN cable and VMware. Works without problems.
Need bridged networking in VMware. And adjust the network settings/IP addresses.

VMware:

Use VMware Fusion Professional and and allocate enough resources to the VM.

Mac hardware specification:

MacBook Pro, Core i7, 16GB RAM, 512 SSD, 15″ 1GbE, SuperDrive, Mid-2012

Virtualization:

That is the magic of virtualization. If you can locate a copy of Star Diagnosis that was intended for the IBM ThinkPad T30 running Windows NT 4.0 Workstation, you could easily install Windows NT 4.0 in a virtual machine and replicate that environment with near native performance. If you prefer to use a Windows XP-based version, that is easily done as well, up to and including Windows 10 1709 or Windows Server 2016. Almost any computer you purchase now will not have drivers available for Windows XP, so either an old PC such as a Dell D630/D830 will allow you to install Windows XP natively and make it work, but virualization takes the headache out of that. OS X us built on UNIX, so it is a very stable host OS and can run nearly any version of Windows was a guest with easy, stability and performance. The only think I would refrain from doing at this point in time, is if you are using OS X 10.13 High Sierra, do not use APFS just yet. It still is not as stable IMO as HFS+. You certainly don’t want to introduce system instability when programming a control module!

Battery:
The battery life is good when running Windows in a VM, as OS X has excellent power management. Allocate at 2 cores to the Windows VM, and if using an XP-based version, 2048GB of RAM should be sufficient.

In detail…How to setup Xentry/DAS on a Mac OS X

It is very straight forward. I elect to not use the automated installation of Windows, as it automatically configures the partition sizes, formats them, etc. Instead, do a custom installation and select your ISO. It will then determine the contents of the OS ISO and select your low-level hardware components automatically, such as CD-ROM bus, HDD bus, etc.

For the network cable, it defaults to NAT, so it shares the IP of OS X, but cannot receive unsolicited network traffic due to the nature of NAT. You can select Bridged, and it can have an IP on the same subnet as OS X.

I think I would prefer to install my installation from scratch, as the pre-built images that are distributed have an unknown product key, and also could contain malware or other unwanted applications.

If you are installing the XP version of DAS/Xentry, specify your virtual disk to be about 120GB, and when Windows XP asks you to specify your partition size, instead of pressing Enter and allowing it to consume the disk specify 20GB and quick format as NTFS. Create the remaining three partitions in Disk Management after XP completes installation.

Also, the first thing you will want to do is install VMware Tools after XP installs. If you want to install all available updates for Windows XP, and download WSUS Offiline version 9.2.3 and it will get your all of the available updates that were released when XP reached EOL.

I have used 12.2015, but if I still used Star Diagnoses, I would revert back a few months to avoid the hard-coded timebomb that was implemented at the end of 2015.

Result:

I have used this setup for many years for control module programming and SCN coding with no issues.

MB SD Connect C4 requires to update VCI

obd2lily | 22 June, 2018 07:56

We have a customer whose MB SD Connect C4 diagnostic system runs great but suddenly require an VCI upgrade.

He rename the VCI update file, but still failed to run Star diagnostic self test (Error screenshot attached)

12-1 12-2 12-3

Solution:

Re-install mb sd c4 battery, update MB SD C4 firmware to V2.3.2.

Some users feedback that SDConnect from OBD2TOOL with serial number 101044 will take firmware update risk. If you use our DAS software without internet connection, it will work.

Why does my dash BEEP when I access my ABS controller?

obd2lily | 10 June, 2018 13:23

In many of the newer models, there will be a series of BEEPs from the dash when you access the ABS controller (and the ABS light will be ON while you are talking to it). This perfectly normal and is done to notify the driver that the ABS is non-functional while in diagnostic mode.

Are there any Fault-Codes that can and should be ignored?

Yes. Most 1995 and earlier Bosch ECU’s will show you a DTC 00513 – Engine Speed Sensor (G28) if you scan them when the engine is not running. This fault code goes away by itself once you start the engine. If this sensor were truly defective, the engine would not run at all! Please ignore this code.
In addition, many Automatic Transmission Control Modules will show a DTC that indicates a faulty brake light switch. This can also be ignored and will not appear if you press the brakes once before checking for Fault Codes.

What’s the Work Shop Code?

Every VW/Audi dealer in the world is assigned a unique Work Shop Code. A brand-new factory VAG-1551/1552 or VAS-5051/5052 scan tool will not function until a WSC is entered, and once it has been entered, it cannot be changed. Whenever a Control Module is Re-Coded, or certain Adaptations are performed, the scan tool sends its WSC to the control module and the control module records it for posterity. Thus, if a scan-tool is used to do something like disable certain airbags, in principle, it should be possible to tell who (which dealer) did that. Like the factory scan-tools, VAG-COM will accept a WSC once on the Options Screen. If you enter a WSC there, it will be sent to the control modules exactly like it’s supposed to be. If you leave the WSC on the Options Screen at it’s default of 00000, VAG-COM will operate in “stealth mode”. Instead of sending a fixed WSC, it will put back whatever was already in the control module, with one exception: If it finds the “telltale” WSC (30011) that VWTool/VDS-PRO likes to leave behind, VAG-COM will replace it with something more innocuous.

How to use Xentry DAS on AVDI passthru

obd2lily | 21 April, 2018 12:24


10-1

What is the AVDI recognized by Xentry?

Xentry 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 (can be found at http://www.obd2tool.com/) 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 fvdi abrites commander 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 star diagnose 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 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.

Autel Maxisys Elite vs Autel Maxisys MS908P

obd2lily | 14 April, 2018 06:44

To compare this product with its rival brands, let’s take an example of Autel Maxisys Pro MS908p which offers ECU coding, programming, and extensive coverage. But, a few users have complained that it loses communication with the Audi and VW car models.

Next, if you select an option, it will display — your vehicle doesn’t support this function. This scan tool also provides frequent connection errors. Thus, you will eventually have an utterly disappointing and frustrating experience.

However, the main difference between the Autel Maxisys is the CPU. The CPU of the Autel Maxisys Elite is NVIDIA Tegra Quad-Core Processor 1.8GHz. While The Autel Maxisys Pro ME908p has the Samsung Exynos Quad-Core Processor 1.4GHz.

Thus, if you are looking for a reliable automotive scanner that’s worth your investment, then do not hesitate to buy Autel Maxisys Elite. This brilliant tool will always offer you a fast and excellent performance. But Autel Maxisys Pro MS908P is also a great choice for you if you don’t care much about the speed.

Pros of Autel Maxisys MS908P

Super fast diagnosis
Auto-Vin Technology
Battery Recharge
Extensive Vehicle Coverage
Smart Screen
Sufficient Storage Capacity
Autofocus Camera
Easy Printing
High-Level Configuration
DataLogging
Compact and Light
MaxiFix

Cons of Autel Maxisys MS908P

The Professional Diagnostic Tool is not suitable for the low-end mechanics as the operational procedures are quite complicated. It mainly targets professionals in Auto-repairing and Garage Shops.
It is a high-end product and is not affordable to everyone who would want to use.

Autel Maxisys Elite Special Functions

obd2lily | 07 April, 2018 23:41

The Autel Maxisys Elite functions perform various component adaptations, allowing you to recalibrate or configure certain components after making repairs or replacement.

The main section of the Adaptation Operation screen displays a list of operational and vehicle status information, which mainly consists of four parts:

1.  The first part in the top line shows the description of the operation being performed, and the execution status is displayed on the right, such as Completed, or Activated, etc.

2.  The second part shows the preconditions or requirements for executing the operation being selected.

3.  The third part displays the current conditions of the vehicle control module being learned for comparison to the preconditions suggested by the second part. If the current condition of the control module is out of the suggested limit value, you must adjust the vehicle condition to meet the requirement.

4.  The last part displays the instruction of how to use the functional button at the lower right corner of the screen to manipulate the teach-in operations.

37-1

Read the information carefully and check the vehicle condition accordingly, when you are sure that the Autel Scanner is ready to perform the adaptation, simply follow the instruction provided to make appropriate selections. When the operation is done, an execution status message such as Completed, Finished or Successful, displays.

Tap the ESC button to exit the function.
