My Kess V2 firmware 4.036 fails to read truck ECUs. Why? And how to rework?
I bought a KESS V2 CLONE, runs on cars and motorcycles, but the protocols are disabled TRUCK. LISTEN TO BE CHANGING NXP and change the firmware to operate in trucks. Could anyone help?
I LEAVE MY DATA KESS.
FW version: 4.036
Serial number: K10033818
Customer Code: C7514
Group Code: C7514
Reply: I guess you bought the wrong type. There are are many kinds of Kess 4.036.
Some cannot support trucks at all.
You should have a small part of kess supports lots of trucks and motorcycles (called truck version)
In the item list, only SE87-K, SE87-CK can work for trucks.
Look at the chart below...details attached
Kess V2 v4.036
Kess v2 v4.036
Kess V2 v4.036
Kess V2 v4.036
(V2.22 version can not connect internet, V2.08 can works with internet)
with a renew button to add tokens
With 30 tokens,
For Cars only;
Best for Trucks !
If you dont want to buy a new kess v2 programming tool. You can change the firmware to v3.099 with a new nxp LPC2478, new serial and new update with trucks.
Also your china PCB must be preapred to handle the 24v
Personally, You are not advised to do so because of high risk and I hold no responsibilty.

Here is the info i have found on the Internet from MPPS V18 china device.
MPPS V18 PCB Schematics
MPPS V18 Tricore Cable Pinout
Some problems on China mpps v18 maybe on new ones it is solved:
ON the tricore cable the +12v switch is only on t he pin 16 of the obd female, so it cuts +12v only on the tool the ecu is always poweered for solve it you can put a switch for cutting all positives and other for minor positives.
Boot wire have no resistor to ground.
And http://www.obdexpress.co.uk/wholesale/mpps-v18-breakout-tricore-cable.html this is a Tricore cable of high quality and tested good

Tips on using Digiprog 3 odometer programmer:
Part 3: digiprog 3 update
Digiprog 3 V4.94 Update Notice:
Digiprog update tips:
How to update Digiprog 3 software:
1.Connect the USB to the computer, start your Digiprog 3, run Digiloader1.exe.
2.Choose the right port, select Digi1.bin, and Click the button. If your dp3 doesn’t enter blue screen, check your setting and restart from step 1.
3.In upgrading, it should be like this until over.
Attention, it will be damaged if you remove it now.
Part 4: digiprog 3 not working
Digiprog 3 not working: Mosaic screen
digiprog 3 v4.94 odometer correction masterdisplay with Mosaic as soon as open it up (shown picture below), and it was not working.
Solution: ask the vendor for these two chips of digiprog iii (marked red picture below) for free and replace the two chips. It will work.
Digiprog 3 not working: white/bluescreen
You may encounter with the Blue/White screen problem of china digiprog 3; usually the possible reasons incl:
We must remember that updates are created for the serial number. The serial number of the update files must = Digiprog 3 serial number. Otherwise, upload the files to another serial number gives us the effect shown in the picture above.
And there are two optional solutions here:
Solution1: Digiprog3–101W(X1) Solder Operation Way
Cut off the connect cable on the 5pin pad (note: cut via reverse) Then use multimeter to test 5pin and R10 which is far away from the point of X1 end–If open circuit is not ok, then means cut off the connector successfully.
Solder X1 to the pad (note: reverse welding)
Connect the point which is the end of R10 which is far away from 101W(X1) and the cable and X1-2 pin.
Take off the fly cable between C30 and X1
Take off the IC on the X1 Replace the IC
Connect the new IC Connect the fly cable as the original situation
Note: the original point of the IC is on the upper left corner, against C30. (Red circled place is chip pic of STC15F: 10W H85330 8AB)
Solution 2: Repair Digiprog3 update failure – a blue / White screen.
To repair the unit we will need:
Ok, so we begin. We will have 3 digiprog undress and get into the PCB, exactly 2 serial memory.
You will see a such a view:
Us interested, memory, marked in the picture above. Are respectively a memory U1A and U2A. These are the memories that are 22, feet on one side, which is 44, feet the entire memory. We remove the memory U1A from the plate and put in the programmer.
Load a file content digi1.bin, to memory U1A.
Then again put memory on the board.
Do the same with memory U2A. Only here to load file Digi2.bin
Then again put memory U2A on the board.
Preferably before each update, do yourself a copy memory dumps U1A and U2A. Then we can go back in case of problems with the update to the old version.
U1A = Digi1.bin
U2A = Digi2.bin
Twirl, back digiprog. After this step, run digiprog. If everything went well that you will be greeted this image.
DigiProg 3 Ram
EEprom Digiprog 3 24C1024
The serial number is stored in the file digi1.bin exactly at this point:
For example, the serial numbers:
C0BE9E0B0000 = D2 CC D0 16 0F 1A 6F F1
61C828170000 = CE 5B 56 C6 3F 16 8D 14
F6C428170000 = 87 98 FA 4E 3F E0 59 56
668206110000 = 44 5B B6 EB 2A A3 D6 1C
3AC928170000 = CF D5 60 29 93 B3 DA D2
Any change in the file, making it not useful after update, blue screen on digiprog 3.
The problem is probably in the checksums of the files after editing change. Maybe someday will a program that will allow changing the serial number in the file update. Then buy only 1 time updates and will be able to change the serial number in the file. Those who sell the updates are, surely such a program.

Part 5: digiprog 3 questions and answers
have somebody problem with no conection on every car?... i need to buy another obd cable?
Easy to change plug but if there is still an issue then it could be inside main unit
What is ST01, ST04 cable used for in the package of Digiprog 3?
It needs to remove chip when you program mileage for some car models. One end of the ST01 cable and ST04 cable clip the chip, and the other end connect to digiprog3.
Audi A5 2011 year 2.0tdi can digi done this dash via obd. other places ecu,dsg?
Yeah, ecu, dsg and smart key...
But you will need some special tools for that
Can digiwigy do Mercedes clk 270 cdi 2003?
can do just dash
I not understand, why guys you need that dongle. All NEC dashboards (except old Peugeot) can makes by 4 wires only. No need solder 14 wires.
Cool need some advice what adapter to use then on a 2009 ford bantam cluster with NEC micro maybe an pdf diagram to assist do you use ST51 perhaps
what you have to do is do the cluster first then cas by OBD, when it asks to connect speedo meter connect it the the cas takes the mileage from the cluster
I used my digiprog v4.94 on a 2008 mini cooper s tacho was quite easy replaced the chip and then tackled the cas 3 unit via obd - it was just searching and searching eventually stopped with unknown version message I ended up doing the cas with rosfar - problem sorted takes a lot of stripping when using rosfar as unit needs to be removed Any suggestions on using digiprog cas 3 obd I used BMW E90 st16 in the menu

Part 6:digiprog 3 review
(BIG THANKS to the digi user @Adrian Makaruk)
I bought Digiprog 3 odometer programmer from china, and I'm happy for it now. Very pleased to work with almost models (incl. European, American and Asian cars).
Digiprog is the best handfs down low cost tool on the market I do everything from foreigns to domestics with it. Version 4.94 is good at its stability even with clone the software put into and the way the 4.94 update was prepared and by who .

Cars that Digiprog 3 FAILED to do:
Audi A3 2014 dash 8V , obd not connect
BMW X1 2013 failed... no bmw after 2002 can go by obd... have to program the 35160 chip in cluster and the cas4 (or fem?) module.
or cluster + can filter cable behind cluster to block cas. but digiprog can't program 35160
BMW 325 e90 or x5 e53 no luck with digiprog via obd2. Cas3 just says no connection or just give me a 1349652 miles which is wrong.
GMC yukon 2001 cannot do via obd
Hyundai I10 9S12HY64 cannot work... Digipro can’t read D flash memory , so it cannot read and write this kind of mcu like Hyundai eon,Hyundai i 10 so use UPA USB can do it.
Chevrolet Cruze 2012 obd didn't work. remove BCM next to left foot passenger seat you'll find 24c16 ok
Mercedes W245 digiprog can’t doby obd.
use cluster plug or program chip.
first set to 999999km. then install cluster and put the car on contact for 1minute. then program cluster to any value.
It’s the same for w169
Mercedes Sprinter 906 need to program ezs (cannot with digi , but Xprog, R270 programmer working no issues)
or use can filter. (yes they exist)

MB Star C5 moveable hard disk is used for containing Xentry DAS, please do not use it as a computer system hard disk.
Here two tips to follow.
Option 1. you use C5 disk on your own computer. Tip: advice you not rework it or dismantle it and plug it to the computer to modify the data.
Option 2. you buy the extra computer together with MB Star C5, then you are advised to prepare one blank hard disk for system installation because the computer you bought doesn't come with hard disk.
How to update DoIP Xentry Connect C5?
Usually you are required to send back the MB Star C5 hard disk for update unless the engineers can make out the updating software for download.
Attach one picture which shows the hard disk location in the C5 mux.
