(Solved) John Deere Service Advisor Search Engine Error

February 13, 2019 by alice88auto  

This is for anyone when he/she runs the John Deere Service Advisor heavy duty diagnostic software, the system appears error message that the search engine module can not be loaded and then the program ends.

NOTE THAT YOU ARE TRYING ANY TRICK ON YOUR OWN RISK.

Optional solutions:

Solution 1:

Run as system administrator, roll back pc date reactivate using activator Then roll date back to normal date if error still renew once again. Been working for me so far.

Note that, don’t know how long it stay working but works im sure someone will have solution for it soon.

Also advice if doing fresh install roll back the date on pc do the install after then install and activations have been done.
Go to task manager look for the service adviser on have it start its tasks in 2030 :save and then reset your pc date should be good for while

Solution 2:

if you set a date before the lightweightidol license expired, start the lightweightidol service, set the real date and start Advisor, it works.

Solution 3:

start advisor. when error comes with “search engine” Close John Deere SA. afterwards set your PC date to feburary 2015. start SA again (run as administrator). it now comes with error on licence. close SA Again. set pc date back to normal. run SA Again. now it Works.

Solution 4:

The search engine error can be solved.
Set back the date, before the expiry date found in Service ADVISORSUIRlicense.log (august 14 in my case). Start LightweightIDOL service. Set the real date, and Advisor working again.
I made a batch file to simplify it. To make it work Control Panel/Regional/short date format have to be yyyy-mm-dd or you have to modify batch. Maybe you have to modify ServiceADVISOR.exe path too in the batch. Have to run as administrator.

Solution 5:

I have had the same error with ssearch engine connection in JD SA.
reinstalled it twice, changed system date back and forward, run activator. No result for me.

But actually I found the solution for this issue.

Solution 6:

back date to 08.10.16
install JD SA, restart, activate, mount latest disk you have (05.2016) and install update, for finish get license error, ignore and close, set actualy date, run JD SA -> works fine, install july update

testing today on 3 laptops (Windows 7 and 10)

On a side note: procedure about turning off the updates don’t know how long it stay working but works im sure someone will have solution for it soon.

Also advice if doing fresh install roll back the date on pc do the install after then install and activations have been done.
goto task manager look for the service adviser on have it start its tasks in 2030 :save and then reset your pc date should be good for while Smile (SO TURN IT OFF IN TASKMANAGER SO IT STARTS 20 30 YEARS FROM NOW!!)

Fresh new installations also work but can be much more complicated sure a patch would be much easier. But it can be done with out a patch so far

In taskmanager I don’t stop any service just put service advisor updater to 2030 to start

also makes sure eculp.ini configurator reads like this

MB Star diagnosis C3 and MB SD C4

January 25, 2019 by alice88auto  

The difference between MB Star diagnosis C3 and MB SD C4 is vey complicated, so i collected some data about them to let you know. Here we take one of my customers’ case as an example to share with you about how to find a right way to deal with MB STAR diagnostic system.

Hello, I am new to STAR diagnosis field. I have been considering all of these questions:

1. All MB STAR system are look similar (Super MB STAR C3, MB STAR C3, SD Connect C4), are they all different?

2. Is the MB STAR diagnostic tool can operate on a Virtual machine? The shops sell Star tools with T30 and Dell 630 are running on Virtual Machine?

3. Can we order a MB STAR (C3 or SD C4) multiplexer + cables and install DAS/XENTRY alone (ie not buy everything HDD)?

4. What is the difference between MB STAR DAS and Xentry software?

That’s a lot of questions, but it is difficult to find clear and precise answers. So I leave it to you! I’m interested in explanations, information, links etc, in French or English, Thanks!!
And following are the autonumen.com customer’s clear & precise answers:

First.
a. All STAR system shares the basic diagnostic software, like DAS, XENTRY, WIS, ST Finder etc. Super has much more software than other star diagnostic systems. Super MB SATR C3 has Develop Mode, Smart TAN code etc software etc that other Star tools does not have.

b. Super MB STAR C3 multiplexer can be updated online. MB SD C4 and MB STAR C3 do not support update.

c. MB SD Connect 4 is the newer and most respected Star tool for Mercedes models.

d. Best price MB SATR C3 version cannot support Benz trucks. Other Star multiplexers work both cars& trucks.

Second. Yes, MB STAR external software HDD can be loaded on Virtual Machine. If you get T30 or Dell D630 format HDD, you can only loaded it on T30 or Dell D630 laptop. If you buy external HDD, you can install it on Virtual Machine. But internal HDD runs faster than external HDD.

Third. If you need to buy Star Multiplexer without HDD, then go for this: Best quality Car Diagnostic Tools MB STAR C3 without software HDD. The better suggestion is that you get the MB SD Connectand Dell D630 laptop which software in pre-installed, you did not need to install software by yourself.

Forth. MB STAR DAS: the automatically Diagnosis Assistance System
Xentry: New software released by Benz Company to diagnose new cars.

DAS in old software

XENTRY is newer software
The Star diagnostic tool it self determines which software you are going to use. That means STAR diagnosis will read your vehicle and enter into Xentry first, if your vehicle has to be done via DAS, it will go into DAS, otherwise it will stay in XENTRY)

Multiplexer STAR Compact 3 (Auto-Link Blue STAR) realizes all the functions of official factory BENZ Star2000: reading out and erasing trouble code; reading the real-time data of sensor and actuator; coding and programming. It applies the latest high-tech central gateway system of car model 221/211 and 203 with software version updated to October of 2006, can enter all the Benz cars, such as autobus truck, saloon car, sports car, smart car and so on.

How to Change John Deere Speed Limit with PLD File Editor

January 17, 2019 by alice88auto  

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.

With John Deere 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.
