TCU Flashing onBMW E85with INPA software

September 20, 2017 by 3635OBD2  

Here are some tips of how to flash TCU of BMW E85 (Z4) using BMW INPA software with a HQ K+DCAN cable or ICOM A2emulator (clone ok).

 

Car: Z4 3.0I with the ZF 6HP19 transmission

Purpose:want to test different TCU calibration files on my E85 (Z4)

 

All should be done via a K+DCAN usb cable running working INPA software

 

Which SGBD does the GKE211 use? 

For Inpa, its the GS19D.prg
Winfkp uses 10flash.prg

 

Here is a quick and dirty INPA script I wrote for you all for reference:
bmw-inpa-e85-1

It sets the protocol to KWP2000 over K-Line and executes the IDENT job.

If it’s unable to use KWP over K-Line, it will display a large red box indicating so.

 

There are a few ways to execute a custom INPA script.

For quick and dirty testing, the CLI is probably easiest. c:ec-appsinpabininpaload :

Code:

c:ec-appsinpabininpaload c:usersrjahldownloadsgke211kwp_808.ipo

If you want to add the script to the E85 menu, copy the GKE211KWP_808.IPO file to the SGDAT folder and then edit the E85.ENG file in the CFGDAT folder.

In the [ROOT_GETRIEBE] section of the E85.ENG file, add two lines similar to the following:

Code:

[ROOT_GETRIEBE]DESCRIPTION=TransmissionENTRY=,,ENTRY=    GS19,Gearbox / Automatic GS19,ENTRY=   gsds2,GS 8.xx / GS 20,ENTRY=,,ENTRY=    gs30,Sequential Gearbox SSG,ENTRY=,,ENTRY=    GKE211KWP_808,GS19D Ancillary Diagnostics,

bmw-inpa-e85-2

Alternatively, you could add a shortcut to the Windows desktop which runs INPALOAD.EXE and calls the custom script.

 

OK, done and working.

How to choose a good BMW motorbike diagnostic tool?

September 18, 2017 by 3635OBD2  

There are three diagnostic tools mostly used to diagnose/program BMW motorcycles:BMW Icom a2, BMW moto diagnotic tool and gs-911 BMW motorcycle diagnostic. Here, take the best choice for you all to share: BMW ICOM A2 + ICOM D.

What can BMW Icom a2 + Icom D do for bmw moto?

1Supported BMW and MINI complete system diagnostic and offline programming.

2Supported to BMW vehicles up to year 2016

3Support Vehicles including BMW cars, BMW motorcycle, rolls-royce, mini cooper

4Support BMW all series diagnose and programming

 

Actually, ICOM A2 + ICOM D… is kind of expensive but most people use this kit. So far, it is the TOP 1 in the BMW motor diagnostics list, with the most powerful & stable function and the best reputation. ICOM A2 and ICOM D do well in diagnostic, coding and programming. A cool BMW motor deserves the best diagnostic kit.

 

Here is a successful case of bmw moto diagnosis via icom a2 and icom d.

 

Managed to do flash programming on BMW motorrad k1300s:

icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-1 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-2 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-3 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-4 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-5 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-6 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-7 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-8 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-9 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-10 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-11

 

But, if you really cannot afford to ICOM A2 + ICOM D for diagnosis, we suggest you try the cheap kit – K+DCAN cable and BMW Motorcycles Motobikes  ICOM D. Attention!! The kit is for diagnosis only, not programming!

 

Here are the steps that I followed:
1. I cut all the big wire

icom-d-diy

  1. I used a multimeter in order to get the relationship between the pins and wires. I used continuity function.
    3. I ordered a female OBD2 (k+dcan cable and Vagcom cable both ok) because I broke mine trying to eliminate the plastic housing
  2. Then i used this configuration below:

Universal K-Line & CAN BUS Adaptor (K1600)

Signal OBDII Socket BMW 10 pin Plug

K1 15 (Ignition On) 1————————————————–10

Ground 4&5————————————————-4

CAN Hi 6—————————————————–7

K-Line 1 (BMS) 7—————————————–1

K-Line 2 (ABS) 8——————————————2

CAN Lo 14—————————————————–9

KL 30 (Bat+) 16—————————————————–6

 

 

How to setup K+Dcan inpa cable

Notes

1/ Dependant on the software, model & adaptor cable used it may be necessary to invert RI #

and DSR signals to for detection of battery and ignition as per the VAG KKL cable.

2/ This cable & access through the diagnostics port is yet to be tested

 

INPA software Installation

1/ If the cable is supplied without drivers & utilities download them from FTDI

2/ Install driver

Plug in cable, WinXP will find cable,

point to directory with drivers, windows installs.

3/ Set the USB Serial port parameters

/MyComputer/Properties/DeviceManager/Ports(Com&LPT/SerialUSB/Advanced

Set the Latency timer from default 16 msec. to 1 msec

Check USB Port No matches Port No set in INPA/EDIABAS (OBD2.ini)

4/ Install Mprog & modify the programming of the eeprom FT232RL

We need to invert RI # and DSR # signals to fool the detection of battery and ignition.

After programming check your I/O Control settings, they must be :

#C0 = RXLED #C1 = TXLED #C2 = POWERON #C3 = PWRON

#C4 = SLEEP Invert RI ticked Invert DSR ticked

Save settings

Toyota Techstream v12 on Windows 7 Pro 64bit How to install

September 16, 2017 by 3635OBD2  

Fair warning: I would not consider this a good investment for someone who does not have a fair degree of tech skill, both when it comes to understanding computers (particularly manual driver installation and USB-based communications) and the Toyota TechStream software itself.

First and foremost: The mini vci cable worked perfectly well for me on a 2017 Sienna SE, using TechStream version 12.x.127(the current release as of the date of this post), based on a Lenovo ThinkPad T500 running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. However, in order to get to that point, I found myself using a different interpretation of the instructions another buyer (‘DuckDivesInWater’) provided in their review. I have no doubt the difference was caused by the fact I’m using a late version of TechStream.

PLEASE NOTE: The instructions below are based on a 64-bit OS. THE PROCESS FOR A 32-BIT SYSTEM WILL BE DIFFERENT.

1). Do NOT try to install the software on the CD directly if you’re running a 64-bit OS! I guarantee it will fail. Horribly. Also, my antivirus software (ESET Smart Security) threw a fit about several files on the CD being contaminated with a trojan. I believe this to be a false positive, caused by the type of anti-hacking application packager the device’s manufacturer (XHorse Electronics, out of China) used to bundle the software together, but be careful no matter what. Google search is your friend!

I will add that, after manually unpacking and installing the device driver, I had no other problems and no sign of virus or trojan infection.

2). Start by installing whatever version of Toyota TechStream you plan to use. Plenty of info on the Internet to help you out with that.

3). Copy the file “MVCI Driver for TOYOTA.msi” from the 10.10.018 folder on the CD to a temporary directory of your choice.

4). Open a command prompt window and change to said temporary directory. Extract the contents of the .msi file with this command (be sure to INCLUDE the double quotes where shown):

msiexec /a “C:tempMVCI Driver for TOYOTA.msi” /qb TARGETDIR=c:tempmvci

5). Once that’s done, delete the ‘MVCI Driver for TOYOTA.msi’ file so it doesn’t get run by accident.

6). Close your command prompt window. In Windows Explorer, go to C:Program Files (x86) and create a new folder under it called “XHorse Electronics”. Change to that folder and create another called “MVCI Driver for TOYOTA TIS”.

7). Next, copy the whole content of c:tempmvci (or whatever temp directory you used to extract the .msi into) to “C:Program Files (x86)XHorse ElectronicsMVCI Driver for TOYOTA TIS”

8). Plug your Mini VCI cable into a USB port. Windows may complain that it couldn’t install the driver. Ignore any such errors for the moment.

9). Open Device Manager and locate the failed item in the hardware list. It should be easy to spot, as it will have a yellow exclamation point overlaying it. You’ll probably see it under ‘Other Devices.’ Right-click on the device, select ‘Update Driver’ and ‘Browse my computer.’ Point the wizard to the folder you created in step 7: C:Program Files (x86)XHorse ElectronicsMVCI Driver for TOYOTA TIS

10). Note that you will likely need to do this twice, once for the VCI chip itself and once for the USB-to-serial-port translation. Point the second prompt at the same folder. Once the process finishes, you should see the two new devices in your hardware list.

11). In order for TechStream to recognize and use the Mini-VCI cable, you will need to add a registry tweak. Some Internet searching will probably turn up a pre-written file, called ‘mvci-x64.reg’ or you can create the file yourself with a text editor as follows:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodePassThruSupport.04.04]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodePassThruSupport.04.04XHorse – MVCI]

“Name”=”XHorse – MVCI”

“Vendor”=”XHorse ELECTRONICS Co.,Ltd.”

“ConfigApplication”=”C:\Program Files (x86)\XHorse Electronics\MVCI Driver for TOYOTA TIS\FirmwareUpdateTool.exe”

“FunctionLibrary”=”C:\Program Files (x86)\XHorse Electronics\MVCI Driver for TOYOTA TIS\MVCI32.dll”

“APIVersion”=”04.04”

“ProductVersion”=”1.1.0”

“ProtocolsSupported”=”J1850VPW:1, J1850PWM:1, CAN:1, ISO9141:1, ISO14230:1, ISO15765:1”

“J1850VPW”=dword:00000001

“J1850PWM”=dword:00000001

“ISO9141″=dword:00000001

“ISO14230″=dword:00000001

“CAN”=dword:00000001

“ISO15765″=dword:00000001

“SCI_A_ENGINE”=dword:00000000

“SCI_A_TRANS”=dword:00000000

“SCI_B_ENGINE”=dword:00000000

“SCI_B_TRANS”=dword:00000000

12). Finally, run Techstream. Go to Setup | VIM Select menu and select the “XHorse – MVCI”

You should now be able to connect to your car’s OBD port and use TechStream just as your dealer’s tech would. Be careful not to change anything you’re not familiar with! It’s too easy to screw something up.

My thanks to ‘DuckDivesInWater’ and ‘JHood’ on the ft86club dot com forums.

Happy tweaking.

New Ford module programming with VCM2 clone

September 15, 2017 by 3635OBD2  

 

VCM2 manual: NEW module programming using Ford IDS software

 

You need Ford IDS software, original or crack

You need a HQ VCM2 clone SP177-C or SP177-C1

(VCM2 genuine definitely is the best solution, but a high-quality one should work great, not  cheap crappy tools)

 

When installing a new module, the configuration data must be transferred from the old module beforeit is removed. The new module will then be programmed using this information. Use the followingsteps to download the data from the existing module and program the new module:

 

Step 1: Select the toolbox tab at the top of the screen

Step 2: Select "Module Programming"

Step 3: Select the tick mark or the Enter key

Step 4: Select "Programmable Module Installation"

Step 5: From the fly out menu, select the type of module to be installed

Step 6: Select the tick mark or the Enter key

Step 7: Make sure that an Internet connection has been established and then select "Confirm"

Step 8: Follow the instructions on the screen. These instructions vary depending on the type ofmodule being installed.

 

NOTE: Be sure to follow these instructions in the exact order that they are given. Do not remove or install any modules until instructed to do so. Failure to follow the instructions correctly may result in the configuration data received during vehicle identification to program incorrectly or not at all.

 

Step 8A: If Ford Module Programming was unable to retrieve the configuration data due to either

a non-functioning module or a module which was removed before the data was retrieved, the

application will request that the user obtain information from the Module Build Data (As Built)

database. Access to this database is included in the Ford Module Programming subscription. The

data can be obtained by doing the following:

  • Go to the Motorcraft website (www.motorcraft.com)
  • Go to the Technical Resources area
  • Log in using the User ID and password set up when the subscription to Ford Module

Programming was purchased

  • Select "My Subscriptions"
  • Select "Ford Module Programming"
  • Select "Module Build Data (as Built)"
  • Enter the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and select "Submit"
  • Write down the information that was requested by the Ford Module Programming

application

  • Return to the Ford Module Programming application and enter the requested information

Step 9: If necessary, apply the reprogramming label to the PCM

If an emissions recall has been performed or a required emissions-related TSB has been completed,

an Authorized Modification label must be placed on the PCM. These labels can be purchased at the

parts counter of a Ford or Lincoln/Mercury dealership.

 

NOTE: It is the responsibility of the technician to inform the customer that Ford Motor Company will not reimburse the vehicle owner for field service actions that are not completed at a Ford or Lincoln/Mercury dealership.

 

Step 10: When the "Programming complete" screen appears, select the tick mark or the Enterkey. If PATS initialization is required, Ford Module Programming may automatically link to the PATSparameter reset and/or key relearn procedures. Two ignition keys may be required to complete the

PATS initialization procedure.

Step 10A: If PATS initialization is required and Ford Module Programming did not link to thatfunctionality automatically, go to the Toolbox tab and select "PATS". Detailed instructionsare provided in Section 6.

How to: VCM2 clone reprogram Ford PCM/ECM modules

September 14, 2017 by 3635OBD2  

VCM2 manual: Ford IDS reprogram PCM/ECM modules.

 

What is a reprogram engine control module?

The Engine Control Module (also called the Powertrain Control Module or PCM) is the brains of the engine management system. It controls the fuel mixture, ignition timing, variable cam timing and emissions control

 

What is the PCM on a Ford?

A power-train control module, abbreviated PCM, is an automotive component, a control unit, used on motor vehicles. It is generally a combined control unit, consisting of the engine control unit (ECU) and the transmission control unit (TCU).

 

What is flashing a ECM?

ECM ECU PCM TCM FLASH – ENGINE COMPUTER VIN PROGRAMMING FLASH & REFLASH. “Flashing” refers to reprogramming automotive engine control modules (ECMs). Almost all new vehicles today are now flash programmable. Flash reprogramming is an important part of repairs and tune-ups on most 1996 and newer cars.

 

What is PCM reprogramming?

To reprogram a PCM or other vehicle module, you need a factory scan tool, or an aftermarket scan tool with reprogramming capabilities, or a J-2534 compliant “PassThru” interface tool (or J-2534-1 for 2004 & newer vehicles) that can connect a PC or scan tool to the vehicle’s diagnostic connector or module.

 

How to do Ford module reprogramming?

 

When a module such as a PCM is reprogrammed, it is not removed from the vehicle. All programmingis done through the communications network.

 

You need Ford IDS software, original or crack

You need a HQ VCM2 clone SP177-C or SP177-C1

(VCM2 genuine definitely is the best solution, but a high-quality one should work great, not  cheap crappy tools)

To reprogram an existing module, follow these steps:

 

(please connect the cloned VCM2 unit to the car and run Ford IDS)

 

Step 1:Select the toolbox tab at the top of the screen

Step 2: Select “Module Programming”

Step 3: Select the tick mark or the Enter key

Step 4: Select “Module Reprogramming”

Step 5: From the fly out menu, select the type of module to be reprogrammed

Step 6: Select the tick mark or the Enter key

Step 7: The application will compare the current calibration level to the latest one available for thatvehicle. A message will appear.

Step 7A: If no later calibration is available, a message will appear indicating this. Select the tickmark or the Enter key to return to the Module Programming menu.

Step 7B: If a later calibration is available, a message will appear asking if you want to reprogramthe module with this calibration. If you do not want to reprogram the module, select “No”. You willbe returned to the Module Programming menu.

Step 8: If you want to reprogram the module, select “Yes” in response to the question “Do you wantto program the vehicle with this calibration?”

Step 9: Make sure that an Internet connection has been established and then select”Confirm”

Step 10: You will be presented with a screen that recommends that you carry out Self Test. If youchoose to complete this test, you will receive a list of Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC’s) that havebeen set on the vehicle. When finished viewing this list, select “Exit”.

Step 11: Follow the on-screen instructions to prepare the vehicle and turn the ignition key off and on.

Select the tick mark or the Enter key after each one.

Step 12: If necessary, apply the reprogramming label to the PCM

If an emissions recall has been performed or a required emissions-related TSB has been completed,an Authorized Modification label must be placed on the PCM. These labels can be purchased at theparts counter of a Ford or Lincoln/Mercury dealership.

Step 13: Select the tick mark or the Enter key to return to the Module Programming menu.

How to choose a HQ SD Connect C4 clone

September 13, 2017 by 3635OBD2  

This is a copy of an original post in MHH forum. I copied and shared it again because it’s a great write-up and i bet i will benefit more from  Mercedes Star diagnostic SDconnect C4 crappy tools.

 

Thread: SD Connect C4 — avoiding garbage

 

I’m in the market for an SD connect C4mercedes benz diagnostic tool and have been trying to spend my time doing some homework to avoid getting a garbage unit. I certainly can understand what a lot of people have been saying about the widely varying quality that’s out there. I am a EE and PCB designer, so I’m trying to make use of that knowledge to select the best unit that I can.

To that end, I’m going to share what info I’ve collected so far, and when I finally end up buying whatever unit I do, I’m going to do a full teardown on it and post the results here.

As another matter, I’ll openly post details on who I buy the unit from and impressions after receiving it.

Near as I can tell right now, there appear to be about 4 “factories” that make different units.

One thing I’ve been asking all of the sellers for (and I would encourage others to do the same) is photos of the actual unit (including PCBs) with a unique identifier in the photo to prove that the unit they say they are going to send me is the actual one they send me. Of course, some sellers immediately bail at this, but then you know who to avoid ahead of time.

In general, a lot of the components used in a C4 are getting quite long in the tooth. Many of the parts are approaching 20 years of age. Thus, you stand a fair risk of getting pulls (used parts) and/or remarked parts on these.

In following posts, I’ll provide photos of what I can discern as differences between the units along with some commentary about whatever info I can provide at this point.

sdconnect_c4_pcb_require_1

to, I’ve outlined some things I feel are important to note. They have a set of 4 analog switches on the PCB. In this photo, they are ADG426 from Analog Devices. I’ve seen some clones that use DG526CY from Harris/Intersil. The DG526CY, besides being completely obsolete, has an typical RDSON of 270 ohms vs 80 for the Analog Devices part. It also has a -55dB isolation vs -75dB for the AD part. In short, the AD part is just a much better mux. So with that said, I would insist on any unit I’m interested in using those.

A second thing you’ll notice is the use of can crystals where 4 pin variants were intended. This is just sloppy and cheap. There may also be issue with loading (and ultimately clock stability) depending on whether they matched the loading caps to the substituted crystal or not.

I haven’t had a set of photos high res enough to look at the rest of the actives in detail yet, as most sellers don’t seem to post them.

There’s also an issue pointed out on the bottom of the board where one of the (what appears to be) MOSFETs in (what appears to be a) D2 PAK looks like it was hand soldered. Again, no good.

This next photo is of the relay PCB— I think one of the MHH members posted this from an original SDC4.

sdconnect_c4_pcb_require_2

.5NU relays and EPCOS S513N chokes. I’ve seen plenty of PCBs where they remove the chokes and stub them out with 0 ohm resistors. That is a high crime in terms of signal integrity. You see a lot of “full chips” comments where these are present, although that is a bit of a misnomer. It should read as “common mode filters present”.

On this PCB, you’ll also notice the use of multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) near the switching supplies. A lot of clones seem to use electrolytic capacitors in place of the bigger MLCCs because of the cost. MLCCs are preferred for switchers because of their low ESR. I really cannot comprehend why the clone makers skimp on these. Even in the US, in reel (e.g. 4K pcs) qty, a 47uF MLCC is about $0.20/ea. That means the difference of probably about $0.50 for the whole PCB. The other advantage of MLCCs is that they more or less last forever, whereas electrolytic caps will eventually dry out and fail (and who knows how old the ones you’re getting are and what the quality is to begin with).

In the upper right hand corner, you’ll see some footprints that weren’t solder pasted during stencil printing. To me, this is a good thing. You know what parts were intended to be populated and which were not. You also get a chance to examine the ENIG finish.

 

In the next photo, you’ll see the MPC5200 board. This is an 8 layer PCB.

sdconnect_c4_pcb_require_3

There are a couple of things of note on this board:

(1) The AMD 10/100 ethernet PHY that’s used comes in 2 revisions and a few different temperature ratings. I have to check the details carefully between the rev A and B, but in terms of temp rating, this should be ‘I’ (industrial) vs ‘C’ (commercial).

These PHYs are ancient now, so any price difference should be minimal between the C and I version. Thus, again, I can’t imagine why anyone would try to save $0.01 and use the C version.

(2)(Anturage corrected me here — this header brings out USB, MII (Ethernet MAC), and some other signals)
(Will update below with the location of JTAG when I find it…)

The header at the lower left hand corner of the board is the JTAG header for the MPC5200. For PowerPC, they refer to this interface as BDM. I haven’t seen anyone talking about it on here, but this could be quite useful in some cases if/when the SDC is flaking out. For anyone who’s not familiar with this interface, it allows you to halt/breakpoint/single step the processor. You can also test the memory attached to the CPU etc. Unfortunately, on this particular PCB, some solder paste leaked through (although I’m not exactly sure how this could happen if I think about it…) onto a few of the pads.

(3) The memory chips are at the bottom. They’re DDR SDRAM (I made a mistake when I originally posted this, I wrote that they were not DDR, but upon closer inspection, they are). You can see the series termination resistors between the memory chips and the MPC5200. As others have pointed out, these should be identical and from the same date/lot code. These parts are plentiful and cheap as dirt, so there’s absolutely no excuse for any funny business there.

(4) The Spansion S29GL064N is a 64Mb (8MB) parallel NOR flash. Pretty standard for the time this unit was designed. This is what the MPC5200 boots from and where U-Boot, the RTOS, etc. live. You can dump and rewrite the contents of this flash via JTAG (mentioned above). These parts are still readily available and cheap.

You’ll notice on this PCB that right below the AMD PHY, there’s a 32KHz tuning fork crystal in a 4 pin package. This is the package that should have been used on the other PCB as well.

In general, this particular PCB looks to be of reasonably high quality.

 

The last photo that I have is of the LCD display.

sdconnect_c4_pcb_require_4

I’ve seen a lot of different variants of this particular board.

There’s this example ‘FT-C4-LCD’. I’ve seen another ‘LCD V1.1’ variant as well.

The biggest thing with this board is that it’s a HASL (hot air solder level) finish. Granted, this is not the most complex PCB in the world by a long stretch, but it just goes to show you how for these companies will go to save every last penny. Although I haven’t seen the back side of one of the ‘FT-C4-LCD’ variants, the ‘LCD v1.1’ variant seems to use some ST microcontroller. Maybe the FT-C4-LCD has one on the back?

There’s nothing else particularly remarkable about this board, although my impression is that the higher quality units seem to use this FT-C4-LCD variant. If anyone has information to the contrary, I’d certainly appreciate knowing about it.

So as I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been sending these photos to any prospective sellers with SD C4 units and asking them to address the issues I’ve pointed out here in writing.

If they either can’t or won’t, I just simply move on. I’m sure there are some people that will argue that I’m just wasting my time, but that’s fine, it’s my time to waste. I think if enough buyers start insisting on better quality up front, and stop buying garbage, it may encourage the factories to improve their quality in general.

To that end, I’m asking any seller to guarantee, in writing, that I will receive exactly what we agreed upon up front, or that they will have to provide a full refund and pay return shipping. To be fair, I am willing to pay more for that. I’m not asking for a top shelf unit at a rock bottom price.

So for any sellers reading this that are interested, please post a note on here, as it may be of interest to others. No need to PM me. Any experience that I have with any seller, I will report back to on here fairly and accurately. I think anyone deserves a fair chance. At the same time, I will be completely honest and detailed about the entire experience, so please bear that in mind ahead of time. I would encourage others to do the same. I feel like this is one place where open communication will benefit everyone.

 

To any sellers that might be reading this:

Please understand that none of us want to buy a unit, have problems, and have to deal with sending back to China and playing games with you. All anyone wants is a high quality unit that will work reliably for years. It is better for you and for us to pay a little more up front and get a better quality product. Since you go to great lengths to obscure your production sources, it becomes your job to communicate to them that poor quality is not acceptable.

Nexiq USB Link 2 genuine and the clone, any difference?

September 13, 2017 by 3635OBD2  

Many talks about differences of Nexiq the original and clone. I have the original Nexiq USB Link 2 and the clone. Here share something with you all. Hope it helps.

 

THE PACKAGING

Lets start with the most simple way to tell the difference, and that is the packaging. This not only includes what the product looks like, but the included accessories as well. Throughout this post, we will be posting side-by-side images, with the genuine Nexiq USB Link 2 on the left, and the china clone USB Link 2 on the right. As you see from the pictures below, the genuine USB Link 2 comes in a nice, hard plastic case. The image on the right is from the China clone, which comes with no case at all. The cables and adapter have been stuffed in the box.

Nexiq-USB-Link-2-Bluetooth-genuine-vs-clone-1

We also then take the contents out to compare. The original device, again shown on the left, comes with the adapter (with all the stickers attached), 6/9-pin long cable, a special USB cable (Which we will discuss more on this later), along with some paperwork. The USB Link 2 clone adapter comes with a HUGE assortment of cables, covering pretty much everything. It also has loose stickers to place on the tool, along with a 3-disc DVD set.

Nexiq-USB-Link-2-Bluetooth-genuine-vs-clone-2

In summary, the genuine USB Link 2 will come in a hard plastic case and will only come with the USB Cable and 6/9 pin cable. The fake and clone adapters from China and beyond will come with a large assortment of cables, along with multiple DVD discs.

THE CABLE CONNECTOR

So far, not a huge deal. You can save $400, and not just get a cheap plastic box, right? Well, there are many more differences, so lets start with the cables and the connector on the Nexiq USB Link 2. Again, the image on the left is what the bottom connector looks like on the genuine adapter. The image on the right is the china clone.Nexiq-USB-Link-2-Bluetooth-genuine-vs-clone-3

In summary, the genuine USB Link 2 will come with a 26-pin male connector for the cables, while the clone USB Link 2 will come with a 15-pin male connector. Remember, Nexiq put an authentication chip in each cable, so how possibly can these clones be doing this? The answer is that the china clone adapters are simply Nexiq USB Link original circuit boards placed in USB Link 2 cases. We will continue to prove this point as we move on.

THE CABLES

One thing that people may like about the China USB Link is that it comes with a wide assortment of cables — 8 different ones. The original only comes with the standard 6 & 9 pin cable, which is used on commercial trucks. The first thing we notice, is that the part numbers are on labels from the China device. Upon inspection of these cables, we find these are all cables for the Nexiq USB Link original, NOT the new USB Link 2. This further proves the point that the China adapter is just an original USB Link in disguise.

Nexiq-USB-Link-2-Bluetooth-genuine-vs-clone-4

The other issue is that the included 6/9 pin cable from the China clone is NOT the new green 9-pin that has been used in all model 2016 model year trucks. This means that this cable will not physically connect to any trucks built in 2016 or newer. Even if you had the correct cable, we have serious doubts that this China clone is cable of handling the new 500k bus speeds that use this green connector.Nexiq-USB-Link-2-Bluetooth-genuine-vs-clone-5

In summary, the USB Link 2 clone from China comes with more cables, yet they are cables for the original USB Link. The included 9-pin from China also will not fit or work on 2016 model year and newer trucks.

USB CABLE

The USB connection port is also different on China knock-off versus the genuine USB Link 2. With the USB Link 2, there is a fancy clip on the USB cable to prevent it from being detached from the adapter. On the clone tool, we find that it is a “regular” USB cable connector, like you would find on a printer or larger USB device. On the USB Link 2 clone we received, this cable was actually very difficult to push in, and the plastic cracked a little when we did. Yet again, another reason to stay away from this tool and prove that it is a fake/clone.

The other important item to note is that on the clone/fake adapter, you will see that there is a hole in the bottom. On the genuine adapter, this is an actual button that you would push.

Nexiq-USB-Link-2-Bluetooth-genuine-vs-clone-6

CIRCUIT BOARD

Now that we’ve explored all of the components, lets take a look at the actual circuit board inside the adapters. Again, we have the genuine adapter on the left and the China clone on the right. Without being a computer engineer, you can see the differences in the boards right away. The clone adapter is actually 2 circuit boards, with wiring in between, while the original is a solid, once piece circuit board. The clone version also contains no Bluetooth chip, so it is USB only.

the genuine PCB

Nexiq-USB-Link-2-Bluetooth-genuine-pcb

the clone PCB

 Nexiq-USB-Link-2-Bluetooth-clone-pcb

NEXIQ USB LINK 2 CLONE STICKER COMPARISON

We also thought it a good idea to show you the adapters side-by-side. In the first view of the front, you can see some noticeable differences. The sticker on the front, while the same size, has the order of the LED lights and also the size of the icons different. Both adapters will show the Bluetooth Logo, however the China version does not have Bluetooth built into it. The genuine adapter also shows an icon for an iPad and iPhone.

On the back side of the adapter, the sticker is a completely different size and much smaller on the USB Link 2 clone. There is also far less information, including the fact that is says “Made in China”, while the original does not.

 

nexiq-usb-link-program-a-new-chip (1) Nexiq-USB-Link-2-Bluetooth-genuine-vs-clone-8

SUMMARY

In summary, we highly suggest staying away from the USB Link 2 clone adapters. Using a USB Link 2 clone will cause you nothing but problems, and just isn’t worth the hassle of saving a couple dollars. There are plenty of other RP1210 adapters that are priced less then a Nexiq USB Link 2, and are also made by legit manufacturers in the USA. The following is a list of things you can look for if you are thinking about purchasing one:

  • It doesn’t come in a black plastic case
  • It comes with more then just the 6/9 pin “long” cable
  • The connector on the bottom is a 15-pin female
  • The 9-pin connector isn’t green
  • The USB cable doesn’t “clamp” into the Nexiq USB Link 2
  • There is a hole at the bottom of the tool where the cable plugs in
  • The sticker on the front looks different then it should

Of course If you are a DIYer, the clone is OK for you. But you should have a HQ Nexiq clone. For cheap craps, forget it. You’ll get what you pay for. 100% certain.

 

Be careful to buy a Nexiq clone off

 

I have had several people having issues with all the lights blink and they can not connect any more, you can not get warranty on Chinese clones so you are out of luck. Also Chinese clones are made with much lower quality than the real Nexiq.

I have had so many support issues that ended up being bad Chinese Nexiq adapters that I warn customers that if they have a Chinese adapter, they are on their own, I don’t support them and Nexiq won’t warranty them. Be Very careful who you buy a Nexiq off of. TRVideo is a supplier of the real Nexiq and has great support so that is the only source I recommend (Truck Parts Today)

How to choose a HQ vas5054a clone

September 12, 2017 by 3635OBD2  

There are four versions of VAS5054A clone for VAG diagnostics, some good and work great while some bad and fail to work. You are supposed to know all versions if you wanna have a high-quality VAS 5054A clone.

So, which one is the best quality?

 

Version 2! it’s a Quality A+++ VAS 5054 china clone with GREEN pcb, with real amb2300 and oki

The green version has made up a item number in china to subdivide the different products and qualities.

 

It is supposed to be the best quality clone. Everything that is needed. The quality looks fine and the AMB2300 Bluetooth (AMB2300 IS THE MAIN THING!!!) as well as the OKI Chip (w/o leg cut) are on the green PCB.

 

Practice says otherwise, different sellers have different qualities! Best advice is to be sure through clear pictures of the PCB, and even then they can send you something else.

 

Vas 5054a clone above is verified to:

Have the real AMB2300 and OKI chip.

Works perfect with ODIS 4.1.3 software crack

It’s OEM, so it fully supports every VAG model

And it’s best for flashing

Online coding service also OK

 

Also,if you just wan an original VAS5054A, here is a how-to guide for you. You can rework the cloned vas5054a as the original.

 

Cloned VAS 5054A PCB rework... here you go.

Open these images if you are interested and save them on your computer. Then you can zoom on them and see more clear all parts.

 

This is the original bluetooth without shield AMB2300 and back of it.

If you’re not equipped with technical knowledge and experience, better not take a risk to try it. Maybe there will be some damages on your car. VAS5054 genuine should be your best solution. But, if your budget is limited, have a try with a HQ VAS 5054 clone! Attention please! Various VAS5054A clone flood into the market, some good and some bad. You should make a decision yourself.

 

Most VAS5054A clones are one of the biggest lottery of all.

 

A lot of fake chips, fake amb's , fake infineons......or missing or reinterpreted projects.

As you well know prices for chips and making a pcb has evolved in - a lot and all these tools use old and cheap chips. Same as a new car has a price, has exited factory min -500 eur. In old days all tools were made at hand, now because of tech is done automatic, so less costs, same for pcb's and funny same for old chips.

Most Chinese do not want to make them proper, that is all. They all have projects and projects of projects, all remade to cut costs and sell some more reinvented stuff.

SO take a good look when you buy, take a very good look at what you get when you get it and in 90% of cases you will need to do more or less rework on it.

 

Enjoy!
