Have a bsi from a Citroen Berlingo 2004 and need to change the mileage in the bsi.
There is one the back 91560.
At first, Digiprog won't read it, keeps saying version unknown.
The correct method is: change mileage manually using Digiprog in EEPROM mode.
Read this article: Digiprog 3 V4.94 program eeprom guide
or Read file and post it on forum for help.
Finally. I managed to sort it..don't think it was soldered on the board correctly.
Besides, obdstar X300M and obdstar dp plus and ODO Master are confirmed to change mileage on Peugeot & Citroen BSI. This post has details and guide: http://www.mileageprogrammer.com/peugeot-citroen-bsi-mileage-correction/

Vote actia multidiag, diagbox xs evolution, ds150e etc, why? any experience for sharing?
Vote autocom / ds150e:
1.For other brands you can take a @utocom it works well anyway.
2. a @utocom and the same as the ds150e, just the name that has changed.
I already have the ds150e I just wanted a more powerful more advanced, in this case see for actia multidiag if you need it. I think I will stay on brand-by-brand interfaces!
Question: Can ACTIA Multi-Diag work with a DS150e interface?
Yes. actia multidiag only works with its software and the serial numbers of its peak and with no other software so it does not work with ds150.
Ds150 works with delphi, woo, and autocom if I'm not wrong good day
delphi vs actia: The 2 can be near the same skills the difference is played on the types of vehicle (European vehicle => actia, exter europe => delphi, although the two are doing very well). The ideal is still diag own manufacturer but hey it's still expensive to add lol.
Fact: with a vci multidiag you can do vida (volvo)
with our vci actia multidiag we can diag with the soft Vida if it's the case you try or you have to change the vci. Tested it works without anything modified, the multidiag compatible with SAE J2534.

The previous article has introduced two ways to read and write N13/N20/N55 ISN by CGDI prog BMW without opening the DME shell. The easier way is to obtain the CGDI BMW authorization. But some customers also don’t know how to use when getting the authorization.
Here share the relevant guide to the CGDI device owners.
The method to read/write N20, N55 and B38 is same as N13, here take N13 as an example.
DME Model: BMW N13
Device: CGDI BMW programmer+ N13 read ISN authorization
One professional OBD cable made by CG Company which is special for reading and writing DME ISN
Follow the wiring diagram in the CGDI BMW software
Connect 12V, CAN-L and CAN-H, GPT-0, GPT-1 and GND cables in order
Supply 12V power to CGDI BMW device, and ensure network connection
Go to CGDI BMW software
Click on “N13/N20/N55/B38 read ISN”
Select “N13” chip and click “OK”
There are 5 options in the main menu: Wiring Diagram, Identify, Read ISN, Write ISN and Back
Click on “Identify”
Read out the chip name, ISN and hardware ID
Click on “Read ISN”
Read DFLASH and ISN successfully
Copy the ISN
Click on “Write ISN”
Read DFLASH success
Save DFLASH data
Backup data success
Paste the ISN has been read
To distinguish the ISN from the original one
Change the last two digits to “88”, and click on “OK”
Write ISN success
Click on “Read ISN” again
Confirm CGDI Prog BMW key programmer write N13 ISN successfully
Two ways to read N13/N20/N55 ISN without opening the DME shell
The place to get the CGDI BMW authorization:

VCX Nano Ford IDS and ELM327, they can run ForScan and the price is cheaper than VCM2 Clone
There's various clones of fords VCM hardware but the cheapest is the VCX Nano. There are however fake ones out there so try and find somewhere with reviews so you can make sure it's legit. I got one from here
***You need the module programming hack .You have to activate the timer then go back to module programming then it works. Anyway, it depends on car model and year.
Connect to a 2005 Ford Five Hundred, recognized (Good)
A required file "Extendprogramming.exe", download on mega:
Decompressed -> select the car brand you want.
I want to program a key to the vehicle PATS system as I only had one key when I brought the car and really wanted a spare in case of loss or damage
This VCX nano for Ford & Mazda device was able to delete all old keys from the system then and add 2 new keys, whilst I was there I did some software updates on the PCM.
With v106.2 running in a VMWare virtual machine. I found that, even though the laptop was within the recommended spec, it just wasn't up to it whilst running as a virtual machine. Of the three vans I tried it on it could only read the Car Configuration Parameters off one of them, but didn't always fail with the same error!
So I loaded a native v86.04 on the same laptop and the VCX Nano has worked faultlessly so far. My feeling is the laptop performance spec is critical: it seems to fail if there is any data underrun.
You could also look at using ForScan. It's free software and does most of the stuff IDS does (Can't do ECU update but can do pump learn etc) You need to buy an ELM327 to use that but they are only €15.
Forscan and a decent ELM327 is all you need. It will do ~90% of what IDS can do, including all the learns and valve resets etc... You can get Bluetooth ELM327's but be aware that they can be a bit "flakey" sometimes, plus the Android and iPhone apps don't have the full functionality of the Windows-based version.
I use an old W7 laptop with Forscan loaded on it and a "USB" cable type ELM327 and it works fine. TBH, Forscan is a lot more user friendly than IDS...don't get me wrong, IDS is brilliant if you can get it to work with a VCM-2 clone but we've had a lot of trouble with a lot of the Chinese clones...some work but a lot don't...it's a bit of a lottery.

I used Yanhua Mini ACDP and have a problem with a fem reset mileage of 2014 BMW M4
Image 1: Reset FEM /BDC mileage failed.
Image 2: FEM /BDC device info.
Image 3: Backup file succeed.
Solution by Yanhua Engineer Chen:
From the image of " FEM /BDC device info", this BMW M4 version is the newest version.
reset the mileage until succeed.

Imagine you am getting more and more ecu's on your bench which no longer store the information in an eeprom but in the MCU (or in both). And you are considering to add a programmer to your workshop. And you have been searching the internet for ages but can't make up my mind. You come to the right place.
This post is available with several cheap and working new ECU programmers. Which can read and write a variety of MCU's used in most car ecu's at the moment (Renesas, ST, Infineon, NEC, ...).
More importantly, a programmer with good support.
Because you wish good support in my opinion Xprog but original, from eldb.eu.
genuine vvdi Pro is very good and works great for me.
we also have a gq 4x4
VVDI Pro can work on Infineon, Renesas, Motorola etc:
Brand: Infineon -Tricore
Atmel – ATMEGAXXXX
ktm bench is a good choice now.

Orange5 looks very good and i know a few people that really like it.
I read nec with orange clone . no problem.
NEC V850ES/SJ3 V850ES/SG3 UART
NEC V850E2 NEW
