How to use reset SBC brake on Mercedes W211

Tuesday, March 20, 2018 8:06:04 AM America/Los_Angeles

One of the MB SD Connect 4 users reported that he cannot reset SBC brake for Mercedes-Benz W211 2005 with new 2015.09V DAS/XENTRY Star diagnostic software. Actually it will. Please follow the instructions below.

 

How to use Benz star diagnostic Platinum Edition to reset SBC?

When you choose SBC system, it will have an option, SBC RESET, after you enter this option, you will see special function, enter this and it will ask for the password, for this password, just fill anything you like, then click next step, then click ok, then follow the prompt to do next.

 

Proper steps here:

Connect MB SD C4 mux with W211 and laptop.

Start Star diagnosis software.

Select chassis: SBC – Sensotronic Brake Control

SD-C4-reset-sbc-brake(1)

Select Control unit adaptions, and click on the tick button to continue.

SD-C4-reset-sbc-brake(1)

Select Special functions and click on the tick button to continue.

SD-C4-reset-sbc-brake(1)

Set a password as you like, then to continue.

SD-C4-reset-sbc-brake(1)

Click OK.

Follow the instruction on the screen to reset SBC brake.

 

Note 

If you got German language Star diagnostic software, then follow instruction here

SBC TOOLS RESET
It started like most of them…….
As a request !!
So,it was a combination , of a faulty SBC ,common sence , LOTS of time and GUTS to figure this out

Make sure engine is running !!!

In Developer mode you need to go to Entwickelingsdaten – > ansteueringen -> Gesamstliste aller Ansteuerungen

to see how many times brake has been pressed there is a line that says: Bremsenzahler (DJ_GetBrLive) or DJ_GetBrLiveTime

then 1 line down there you see Bremsenzahler aktualisieren und Lebensdauerzahler F neu berechenen -> click it !
Parameter uINBR = 0
then click F3

1 line down Bremsenzahler auf beliebigen Wert setzen (DJ_SetNBr) -> click it
Parameter uINBR = 0
then click F3
then scroll down untill you see the line’s :

Lebensdauerzahler F neu berechenen (DJ_CalcLiveTime)
Parameter uINBR = 0
then click F3

Lebensdauerzahler F neu berechenen und schreiben (DJ_BuildAndWriteF)
Parameter uINBR = 0
then click F3

Log out of SBC !!
log out of verhicle !!

let engine run at least 10 minutes or drive at least 10 minutes

If no coils are damaged , SBC fault code is not AKTUEL nomore
Note:
(Dj_setNBr) Here you SET new brake counter value back to 0
(Dj_setNBr) uINBR = 0

Resetting break counter to zero is in my opinion , not messing with …..

each time SBC powers up it checks itself time after time
If there occures any problem in SBC unit with valve,brushes or whatever , it will go into error anyway. that you will NOT be able to erase in Dev mode

If you switch on contact of Brand new MB with SBC and press break 300.000 times it will go into this so called “error” you wanna say SBC is broken then ? without driving a milimeter ?

No it’s indication to have SBC unit checked by MB workshop $$

Yes it’s true that MB has to replace Faulty SBC units for free
since Factory will pay all there labor & material
But most Dealers try to have costumer pay for this procedure claiming costumers car has no a Dealer serviced History

How to Read and Write Bosch ECU MED17.5 via OBD and Boot Mode

Tuesday, March 20, 2018 7:57:54 AM America/Los_Angeles

The ECU is built on the Infineon TriCore TC1766 processor.

Bosch med 17.5 ECU pinout 1
In the processor chip is a flash memory in volume of 1504 bytes and EEPROM in 32 bytes.

Bosch med 17.5 ECU pinout 2

There are two ways to read-write a block: via the OBD connector and through the BSL bootloader (the so-called boot-mode)
Each of the methods has its advantages and disadvantages.

Read-write via OBD:
pros:
fastly-
no ventilation of the ECU is required
Against:
-It is only read data with calibrations, it is saved
not possible on all computers to read and write because of the installed protection system
TPROT-ECU reprogramming counter is increased

Read-write via Boot-mode
pros:
-access to all flash memory and its industry-the
ECU reprogramming counter does not increase
Against:
-Need to remove from the machine and then disassembled

Bosch-med 17.5-ECU-pinout-3

Bosch-med 17.5-ECU-pinout-4
For programming, the FGTech Galletto v54 or its Chinese clone is most often used

To connect to the ECU on the table for OBD reading, you must use the following wiring:

1 - ground
5, 87, 92 - + 12V
67 - can high
68 - may be weak

And if you are working with the ECU on the table by "boot mode" you have to use the following contacts:
1 - ground
5 - + 12V
87, 92 - ignition
67 - can high
68 - may be weak
And in addition, you have to connect with a gray wire (or solder at 1km from the ground) to the "boot" point on the board itself

med 17.5 _bootpin
Connection pins:

med 17.5 _pinout

For indiscriminate read-write, the standard procedure is used.
But in case of transfer of the device to "boot mode" the program will require at certain stages of work to reset the power of the computer.

Xentry connect C5 Mercedes DOIP device

Friday, December 1, 2017 9:50:48 AM America/Los_Angeles

Xentry connect C5 Mercedes DOIP device

After 2015, all Star Diagnosis equipment is no longer supported. First of all, this means that there is no update of the diagnostic data for the newest cars and their systems, as well as the lack of the possibility of coding and programming of electronic units due to the backlog of the software data level in the device, from data in the electronic control units of the car.
Already at the end of 2014, at most dealerships, almost all of the previously used Star Diagnosis Compact4 with SDConnect DoIP multiplexers were almost completely removed. Instead, dealers received Xentry Kit kits, which include the latest Xentry Connect multiplexers and Xentry Tab tablets from Panasonic. Tablets are custom-made, although they also have a "civilian" version - the Panasonic Toughbook CF-D1, somewhat inferior in terms of battery life to the original Xentry Tab, but it has a much more powerful configuration.

And the most important is mercedes produce new car with DOIP Protocol!

What is DoIP Protocol .

Doip is  Diagnostic Communication over Internet Protocol

Short and simple: “DoIP is the packaging of diagnostic messages

in Ethernet frames for communication of a diagnostic tester with a vehicle”

  • DoIP is a standardized diagnostic transport protocol according to

ISO 13400 (see the note below)

  • DoIP is used in combination with the standardized diagnostic protocol

UDS (ISO 14229-5: UDSonIP)

  • Services of UDSonIP are identical to UDSonCAN
  • DoIP with Ethernet 100 Base-TX instead of CAN enables substantial

higher bandwidth

  • Vehicle access with DoIP is backwards compatible using discretionary

pins of the existing diagnostic connector

  • DoIP enables easy integration into various network structures,

even with WLAN

 

The DOIP Requet a powerful device than old one beofore 2015 . so we should have the new one Xentry connect C5 to instead of old one like SD CONNECT C4 MB STAR C3 and fake sd connect c5.

The SD CONNECT C4 MB STAR C3 and fake sd connect c5 couldn't support DOIP  .

that means it can't works on new mercedes car like W222 S-class!

So if your workshop is focused mercedes, , update your device first, like the dealer use the The xentry connect to help your Job!

Mercedes Xentry connect C5 for sale on www.xcar360.com now

https://www.xcar360.com/original-mercedes-benz-star-diagnosis-xentry-kit-xentry-connect-c5-xentry-tab-mb-satr-c5-multiplexe-support-doip.html

how to use vediamo activate COMAND NTG 5.1 and Audio20 menu

many have already noticed that there is no longer the secret menu in the NTG 5.1.
A little fallacy.
Is only deactivated.
After unlocking via Vediamo it is again as usual to reach.
 
Small instructions, is anyway to be found on the net.
 
Download "parameter" DL_Switch_Engineering_Mode "to" ON ".
 
Do not forget to reset.
 
Then the access is as usual via:
 
"Phone HangUp" + "1" + "#", "hang up" + "1" + "#"
 
directly at the HU.

 

 

viele haben ja schon festgestellt das es das Geheimmenü im NTG 5.1 nicht mehr gibt.
Ein kleiner Trugschluss.
Ist nur deaktiviert.
Nach freischalten per Vediamo ist es wieder wie gewohnt zu erreichen.
 
Kleine Anleitung, ist ja sowieso im Netz zu finden.
 
Download" parameter "DL_Switch_Engineering_Mode" to "ON".
 
Reset nicht vergessen.
 
Danach ist der Zugriff wie gewohnt über:
 
"Phone HangUp" + "1" + "#" , "Auflegen" + "1" + "#"
 
direkt an der HU zu erreichen.
 
In Berlin kann ich das bei bedarf freischalten.

what is J2534

Sunday, October 22, 2017 3:51:43 AM America/Los_Angeles

J2534 FAQs

What is J2534?

J2534 is an interface standard designed by SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) and mandated by the US EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) for vehicle ECU reprogramming. Its purpose is to create an API (Application Programming Interface) which would be adopted by all vehicle manufacturers, allowing the Independent Aftermarket (IAM) the ability to reprogram ECU’s without the need for a special dealer-only tool.

What is J2534-1 and J2534-2?

There are two parts to SAE J2534 -> -1 and -2.
SAE J2534-1 defines features for a device that performs ECU reprogramming of emission ECUs (and could also apply to non-emission ECUs).
 
SAE J2534-2 defines optional features for a device that performs ECU reprogramming on other non-emission ECUs as well. It also offers a way for an OEM to reprogram all ECUs on their vehicles "using J2534" by releasing and publishing necessary protocol information about non-emission ECUs.
 
What vehicles are affected?
 
The US EPA regulation mandates that automotive OEMs must comply with SAE J2534 pass-through reprogramming from model year 2004 and forward for their Powertrain ECU’s. If an OEM cannot comply with J2534 by model year 2004, they may request one year additional extension to become J2534 compliant. Additionally, the specification includes a provision that allows OEMs to use the J2534 reprogramming method on 1996 through 2003 model year vehicles as long as OEMs make all necessary additional hardware (i.e. vehicle connection cables for use with device and/or it’s auxiliary pin) available to the aftermarket. If an OEM cannot retroactively implement the J2534 pass-through reprogramming solution with or without special cables, they must make available to equipment and tool companies any information needed to develop aftermarket equivalents of their OEM-specific reprogramming hardware and software.
 
Can I reprogram all vehicle ECUs?
 
J2534 pass-thru reprogramming is only required for emissions based ECUs (eg. Powertrain, Engine, Transmission, Throttle Controller) and is mandatory on all vehicles from model year 2004 and forward. Additional support of reprogramming Chassis and Body ECUs will be dependent on each individual manufacturer’s reprogramming application software capabilities.
 
Can I reprogram any Powertrain ECU?
 
Only those Powertrain ECU’s which are emissions-related and are Flash reprogrammable may be reprogrammed. Plus, the OEM will have to be performing reprogramming in its dealership on the particular Powertrain ECU as well.
 
Does J2534 affect all OEMs?
 
Yes, all OEM’s that sell vehicles in North America and support ECU reprogramming in their dealerships for emissions-related systems must comply.
When does the legislation take effect?All OEM’s must have their ECU calibrations available by June 2005.
 
Where do I get the reprogramming application software from?
 
Each OEM is required to make available their ECU Reprogramming Application software on their own service information web sites. If ECU Reprogramming is practiced in the dealership, then it is the responsibility of each OEM to maintain and update their own sites, and keep current applications available for download. Note that a fee set by the OEM may apply.
 
Where do I get the ECU reprogramming calibrations from?
 
Each OEM is required to make available their ECU reprogramming calibrations on their own service information web sites. If ECU reprogramming is practiced in the dealership, then it is the responsibility of each OEM to maintain and update their own sites, and keep current calibrations available for download. Note that a fee set by the OEM may apply.
 
Are the ECU reprogramming calibrations free downloads?
 
Each OEM typically charges a fee for use of their site and/or for the ECU calibration download. These fees vary from OEM to OEM.
Does the ECU reprogramming event utilize my Scan Tool?A J2534 compliant device for ECU reprogramming is considered a vehicle interface. A device requires a Windows-based PC (on which the reprogramming application software operates), with a USB or Ethernet port, and an internet connection (for Internet access to obtain reprogramming application software and calibration files).
 
Will I still need my Scan Tool?
 
Yes, J2534 reprogramming application software typically does not incorporate diagnostic Scan Tool functions that must be utilized to perform post-reprogramming tasks (such as clear DTCs or re-learn procedures). This is dependent upon the make and model of vehicle.
 
How long does a J2534 ECU reprogramming event take?
 
The programming time varies among vehicles based on communication speed of the protocol used, calibration file size, total number of calibration files, the number of ECUs to reprogram, and Internet connection (latter is dependent on OEM). Newer vehicles with CAN protocol may be as fast as 2 minutes, while vehicles with CAN that have a lot of data to download will take well over an hour. Older vehicles without CAN can take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes.
 
Is a high-speed internet connection required?
 
High-speed Internet connection is highly recommended. You will be required to download the calibration files directly from the OEM websites, so shorter downloads equate to quicker reprogram times. Prevalent with European car makes, in some cases the OEM will require a direct connection between the vehicle, the in-shop PC (running the reprogramming application software) and the OEM server. It’s this latter condition that requires the speedy high-speed connection. Consult OEM website guidance for minimum Internet connection specification requirements.
 
What is critical for successful ECU reprogramming?
 
There a 3 key points that need to be followed for successful reprogramming.
  1. The vehicle’s system voltage must remain constant (specified by OE) during the reprogramming.
  2. The vehicle’s electrical system needs to be functioning properly (e.g. battery state of charge and state of health, cable connections and alternator charge performance). Note: Battery Testers can be a key addition to ensure these systems are up to the task of reprogramming.
  3. Follow the manufacturer’s reprogramming instructions in a step-by-step manner!

What tools does Bosch Diagnostic offer to fill my J2534 reprogramming needs?

Mastertech VCI, Flasher Pro, and Flasher LT support aftermarket reprogramming functions offered by OEM reprogramming application software. The General Motors MDI can also be used in the aftermarket although its intended use is with GM TIS.

Which vehicles can be reprogrammed using Bosch J2534 tools?

Vehicles with ECUs that can be reprogrammed are defined by the automotive OEM. Consult the OEM application guide for vehicles and ECUs that can be reprogrammed using the J2534 function. A check of the OEM service information website is often a good place to start. In addition, www.nastf.org may also contain helpful application information.

Autel Maxidas DS808K Full Set Questions and Answers (FAQ)

Wednesday, October 11, 2017 12:13:58 AM America/Los_Angeles

Autel Maxidas DS808 Full Set Questions and Answers (FAQ)

Here a collection of Autel Maxidas DS808 Full Set Questions and Answers, hope it helps.

 autel ds808k

 

Question: Can you use this to program new keys
Answer: Yes you can reprogram keys with this tester

Question: Is it true that this model is no longer updateable? I was just going to purchase one,but if that is the case it is worthless
Answer: I can only tell you that I updated mine for Mercedes and chevy right after I registered it

Question: can you program the abs module with this
Answer:DS708 can not program the abs module.Only maxisys pro can do it

Question: Is it availalable with standard package which has less adapters and cables?
Answer:Yes, we have standard package Autel Maxidas DS808.

Question: Is it difficult to register this device? And can it support Spanish?
Answer: Registering the device was easy. You simply go to autel’s website and set up an account. Once you do that you take the registration code/passcode from the scan tool and register it on the website. You then make sure that the scan tool is hooked up to your wifi which is setup in settings. Then you are ready to update the scan tool with the latest software.
Changing the language settings is also easy. You simply do that in settings as well and have multiple different choices. I do know Spanish was one of them. I returned mine because it could not code or reset any adaptaions in any modules on my vehicles. My vehicles are about 15 years old and I think the support on older vehicles goes away with the updates. It probably has more capabilities on the newer vehicles. I should have purchased one of these 5 years ago and never updated it so that the scan tool could retain its capabilities.

Question: Can i use for other connections besides OBD2?
Answer: Yes, this is full set version, it is included with many cables and adapter which are not OBD2.

Question: What is the head set used for with the scan tool
Answer:It’s not used with the tool is just a free give away to get you to buy an outdated tool that according to autel there will be no more updates after Dec 2017. I sent it back because I couldn’t get it to update or more like it removed software during update which is another common complaint on their site. I feel it’s dishonest to sell things claiming a year full updates and it’s not a year is much less than a year but I guess China isn’t afraid of a class action for fraud.

Question: Does it do tire pressure and how about the free headset?
Answer:It will perform limited tire pressure functions (i.e. Read it) if the ECU program allows it via OBD II connector. The free head phones are surprisingly very good, they are comfortable, easy to use, battery lasts a long time and rechargeable.

Question: Does this tool have bi-directional control and diagnostics for the Body control Module?
Answer: Yes, of course, it can support it.

Question: can it program tpms sensor
Answer: It can put the car into programing mode but you will need a tpms sensor tool

Question: Can it do a power balance on a ford 2006 f350 diesel?
Answer: Yes, it can be supported.

Question: can i use in Spanish language ?
Answer: may we know what’s your serial No. of your DS708? To change language, you need to download all the software again, so your device needs to be within the updating period. If it is still within updating preriod, please provide us the serial No. and we can ask Autel to authorize Spanish for you.

Question: can this unit be used to relearn the idle, on a 2010 chevy 1500 silverado z71, auto trans, 5.3
Answer: Yes, it can be supported.

Question: Dose it work on 24v truck
Answer: Mine is a 708 and is 12 volt only. You may have to get one for heavy duty trucks, depending on the make. Sorry I couldn’t help.

Question: Hello Can this change the settings on a 2008 GM product to turn the cruise control on in the body control module?
Answer: It can support the following functions:

Cruise Control Options

Cruise Control Cycle

Cruise Control Options

Cruise Disable

Cruise Enable

Cruise Inhibit

Question: Will this test the abs module on a 1995 chevy k2500 suburban with the diesel engine or can you recomend one that will?
Answer: on you need older otc

Question: Can you program BMW e63 keys
Answer: Sorry, it can’t support to program BMW keys.

Question:Does this scanner do check engine lights abs lights and show live data??
Answer: Yes, DS708 can do it.

Question: Can u set Dist timing on 97 chevy
Answer: Yes you can, it’s listed as knock retard in degrees. Set it close to 0 as you can get.

Question:Hi, does it have Australian vehicles?
Answer: only the Australia version DS708 can test Holden vehicle.

Question: Will this do as much as a snap on scanner?
Answer: You can search on YouTube where guys compare the different scanners between Snap On, etc.

How to solve SDconnect TOOLKIT didn't work problem

Thursday, September 14, 2017 5:50:13 AM America/Los_Angeles

Here are customer solutions of what to do if SD connect Toolkit COM-Server has stopped functioning.

 

Some folks inform tried and solved it this way. (i have not tried this)

1. Open Taskmanager an Kill all Processes of SDconnect Toolkit(Tkserver.exeTktray.exe).
2. Go to DTS install folder and find the folder with the Tkserver.exe in it.
3. Delete this folder.
4. Install SDconnect toolkit from here:
https://mega.nz/#!rgExUb7Z

encryption key: fQAtu6sTOfHFhfQi5ZObBJr742wGa7_CXuLY33JLhfc

  1. Go to original SDconnect Path (C:\Program Files (x86)\Mercedes-Benz\SDconnect Toolkit\
    6. Copy filesToolkit.ini + SDVersion.dll
    7. Paste Toolkit.ini in C:\ProgramData\I+ME ACTIA\Toolkit\ and SDVersion.dllin Install-Directory of the new SDconnect Toolkit.
    8. Start SDconnect Toolkit from Startmenu (the SDconnect folder in Root of “All Programs”, not the one in “Mercedes-Benz” folder)

but i have another way that seems to work.
have not tried on vehicle yet but at least i get no more errors.

my base is a win 7 x64 system.
i have a clean and working installation of xentry xdos 05.2016.
but it should work with other Xentry versions too.

Now you install DTS Monaco and the Daimler Addon.
In my case it was Monaco 8.3.12 and the “setup_addon_dag.exe”.
Now restart the PC. You notice that the sdconnect toolkit does not start anymore.
Delete the “Start SDconnect Server” shortcut from the autostart folder.
Now restart the pc again or open the taskmanager and kill the process TkTray.exeand TkServer.exe.

Now you browse to “C:\Program Files (x86)\Mercedes-Benz\SDConnect toolkit\”.
Copy everything that is in that folder. (should be 6 subfolders, bin, doc, selftest and the update folders)

Now browse to “C:\Program Files (x86)\Softing\Diagnostic Tool Set 8\8.03\Interfaces\DCDI_DPduApi\eCOM_Toolkit”.
Delete everything that is in this folder.
Now paste the folders/files you copied from the Mercedes folder here.

Open the “bin” folder and copy the toolkit.ini file.
Or go back to the Mercedes folder and copy the toolkit.ini file from there.
Paste and replace this file into “C:\ProgramData\I+ME ACTIA\Toolkit”
(Note, the C:\ProgramData folder:

It is a hidden folderon Win7. I do not talk about c:\program files\ or c:\program files (x86)\ (name of these folders might be different if your windows is not english)
(you can get the right folder by opening the explorer and typing in the adress bar %programdata%)

With Win XP i guess the right folder could be something like “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data”.
You could also try to just search for the toolkit.ini file on the whole C:\ drive. Should give you the location as well.)

Now restart the pc again.

In my case, deleting the autostart prevents the toolkit to start from the mercedes folder.
thanks to monaco the toolkit from the softing/interfaces/ecom folder will now start.
by replacing the toolkit in that folder we trick the system into starting a copy of the original toolkit.
my toolkit now starts without an error. i can open it again and everything seems to work. before it did not start at all or i got error messages.

How to Reset BMW E92 335i Transmission via INPA K+DCAN

Friday, July 7, 2017 3:40:04 AM America/Los_Angeles

How to Reset BMW E92 335i Transmission via INPA K+DCAN

I am trying to reset automatic transmission adaptations on BMW E92 335i 2007 via INPA K+DCAN cable and software, but i am stuck at the step as indicated by the picture.

—-Xcar360 Automotive diagnostic tool , diagnostic software  sales@xcar360.com

I downloada gs19.ipo file to do my reset as I have the alpina and it wouldn’t work so now it does but I got this message:

“nicht zusammenpassende versionen fehlfunktion ist moglich” which translated says

“Mismatched versions malfunction is possible”

 

I?search around forums and finally get some clues from?Alex Fiehl.?Big thanks to Alex who helped solved my problem.

 

There are reset jobs/functions in Tool32 that I find is more reliable. Just be prepared to follow the proper “re-learning” procedures afterwards. Check detail guide below:
Automatic transmissions are fickle beasts which can be astronomically expensive if not maintained. Throw in the fact that it’s a BMW, and the need for regular maintenance becomes quite clear. Unfortunately, a fluid and filter change is not as easy as it used to be.

When hard parts are replaced in a transmission or the fluid is changed, resetting the transmission’s adaptations may become necessary to restore shift quality. The ZF 6-speed automatic used in many E90-based vehicles like the 335i, X1, and 135i (among others) is an expensive transmission, and fluid replacement w/adaptation reset can be a great way to extend the life of it. This article should apply to any E-series vehicle that uses the ZF 6-Speed “Steptronic” Automatic.
When should I reset adaptations?
-When the fluid is changed
-When the software is updated (i.e. Alpina B3 Flash)
-When hard parts are replaced inside the transmission
Warning: If you have the capability of resetting transmission adaptations with INPA, I urge you not to do it unless you have the time and roadways to complete the relearn process exactly as described. This procedure will cause the transmission to shift poorly at a detriment to the gearbox if the relearn is not performed immediately and properly. It is better to change the fluid and NOT reset adaptations, than to reset them and not perform the proper relearn procedure.

To interface with your BMW you will need a BMW INPA K+DCAN Cable, which is a USB to OBD-II interface cable. We won’t be coding any modules or doing intensive flashing, so even a budget cable is likely to work, though.

 

Software Installation
To get INPA (as well as other coding features not needed in this article) BMW Standard Tools must be installed. Here are details instructions on how to install it:

 

 

Resetting Adaptations
Turn the vehicle’s ignition on but do not start the car by pressing the start button twice. Plug in the K+DCAN adapter to the vehicle and laptop. Execute INPA. When INPA is loaded, the battery and ignition bubbles should be filled in to indicate it has established communication with the vehicle.
Press shift+F8 for E90 based vehicles:

Select Transmission, then select GS19:

 

Press F6 Activate:

Press F3 to reset transmission adaptation values:

After pressing F3 the software should confirm the adaptations are reset and you can begin the process of relearning.

 

Relearning Adaptations
The most important part of resetting transmission adaptations is the re-learn process. Refer to the chart below to see which re-learn procedure your vehicle needs after its transmission adaptations are reset. Your vehicle’s build date will be on the sticker in the driver’s door jamb.

Relearn Procedures:

BMW ENET E-sys clean TPMS Warning of bmw f10

Thursday, July 6, 2017 3:22:04 AM America/Los_Angeles

I have used BMW ENET cable E-sys F-series coding software to successfully remove all warnings about TPMS from my NAV – HU_CIC / RDC = nicht_aktiv

 

And now I’m trying to display how to remove the yellow warning light in the instrument cluster.

(Credit to shawnsheridan!)

 

First search KOMBI for RDC setting, and if that did not work, remove 2VB from VO and VO Code KOMBI, HU_CIC, and RDC
Kommentar=RDC Ueberwachung (Comment=RDC monitoring)

KOMBI / ST_TYR_TIMEOUT = nicht_aktiv
KOMBI /ST_TYR_ALIVE = nicht_aktiv
if it doesn’t fix. Try to remove 2VB from vo
Hmmm…that surprises me that those two did not kill it.

Try this one too:
KL_PREDRIVE_F10_RPA = nicht_aktiv

If unsuccessful, kill 2VB in your VO, and VO Code HU_CIC and KOMBI. RDC has no coding data, so there is nothing to VO Code there.

 

If no luck, load the xml file with the 2VB option removed and VO code those 2 again.

That is why removed it. Now when you VO Code the ECU’s, it won’t enable 2VB like your regular FA that is stored in your car will (assuming you did not go so far as to write the modified FA to the car, and the FA in the car is original).

 

Success! Did everything mentioned above but this time I removed fuse. No more tpms warnings, alerts in nav or instrument panel.

However, while coding the kombi it came up with a CEL out of the blue. It has been 3 days and its still there. I don’t drive the car that much so I’m hoping it goes away on its own.

 

Then i tried this.

Assuming the fault condition no longer exists, to clear the fault code.

1) Launch C:\EDIABAS\Bin\TOOL32.EXE
2) Hit F3
3) Load C:\EDIABAS\Ecu\F01.PRG
4) In the “Select Job: F01” window, select FS_LOESCHEN_FUNKTIONAL
5) Hit F5
6) “Results” window should show “JOB_STATUS = OKAY”

Problem Solved.
CEL is gone. To recap for people wanting to disable TPMS

Pull the fuse in the trunk for TPMS.
Remove 2VB option in VO
HU_CIC / RDC = nicht_aktiv (this removes TPMS options from NAV)
KOMBI / ST_TYR_TIMEOUT = nicht_aktiv
KOMBI /ST_TYR_ALIVE = nicht_aktiv

Warning :fvdi may kills johnson control bsi

Berlingo and partner B9 read BSI Johnson read pin results: Kill BSI
very dangerous.

Have some method to save the BSI ,but better not read Johnson Bsi

this is some method about this problem

 "The bsi is not kill is in boot mode but car in economie mode
put bsi incar but star other car and connect +and- in car for read bsi 
is work 100% "

"the BSI goes in economy/boot mode because the procedure takes much time - i have to connect another car to the battery of the non-starting car, start the donor-car and then i will be able to connect to the "dead" bsi and revive it by switching off the economy/boot mode "

Exactly, BSI is not kill,it is in boot mode but car is in economy mode, put BSI in car but star other car and connect +and- in car for read BSI is work 100%.

To explain better my procedure: no problem when you read BSI connected other car will start on the battery of the vehicle you read BSI because the proceed is not fast and your vehicle goes into economy mod then your BSI remains in boot mod and does not want to start your car if you happen redone a reading of your BSI and finally exit the boot mod reading and more concern, especially connect another car started on the battery of the vehicle to read.

You could understand like this: the BSI goes in economy/boot mode because the procedure takes much time – I have to connect another car to the battery of the non-starting car, start the donor-car and then I will be able to connect to the “dead” BSI and revive it by switching off the economy/boot mode.

When you adjust mileage on Peugeot/Citroen, it is best to put BSI out from eco-mode with Diagbox, take out fuse for front wiper and turn parking light on, put charger to battery. It is safe now to adjust mileage with FVDI.

when you program a bsi must always be 13.5V
