In this article, we discuss the advantages of Mercedes Star Diagnostic scanner including things that you need to keep in mind before you buy a MB Star Diagnostic scanner. A list of top alternative scanners to Star Diagnostic is included as well. Note that this article is not written to approve or sell any of the scanners mentioned here including Star Diagnostic Scanner. We share our experience and research of diagnostic scanners and hope to help you the Mercedes-Benz owner who are looking to perform your own MB repairs and diagnostics.

Let’s first explain what Star Diagnostic SD (C3 or C4 SD Connect) tool is for those who may be wondering. This is the diagnostic scanner that is used at Mercedes-Benz dealerships and some auto repair shops. It can also be purchased by independent shops. These scanners include the hardware and Xentry which is the software that is used to troubleshoot the problems in any Mercedes-Benz. Original units can be purchased at STAR Tekinfo which is the official Mercedes-Benz site that offers technical documents, special tool and diagnostic software.

Advantages of Star Diagnostic Scanner

This scanner is used by the dealer and it allow you to access and troubleshoot any system or control system in your Mercedes-Benz. Activate any sensor in the car, perform initiation test, stream live sensor data and also read and clear fault codes. If you own a shop who focuses on Mercedes-Benz cars then this is a must for you. Get it via official channels so that you can perform online SCN coding. All MB SD control units are accessible, like engine ECU, ABS, Airbags, SRS, Aircon, Immobilizer, Keyless Entry and the rest of 40+ control units used in MB cars. You can Read / Delete Faults, Live Data, perform sensor actuation, read current configuration, initialaztion and a lot more.

Things to consider before you buy one!

If you are looking to purchase a Star Diagnostic System with Xentry for Mercedes-Benz there are a few things you need to consider.

Learning Curve: In order to use the diagnostic scanner properly you need to learn how to use the Xentry software. While reading, clearing fault codes is not very difficult anything besides that requires that you have proper training. Yes, you can find a few guides online on how to perform certain programming using Xentry but if you don’t perform the programming accurately you may end up causing more problem than you solve.

Consider Genuine Scanner: The only problem is that they are quite expensive and require a yearly license. If you are considering to buy a clone of the scanner made in China keep the following concerns in mind.

SCN Online Coding: Unless you buy the scanner from the official Mercedes-Benz source, you will not be able to perform SCN coding of control units. That’s because Mercedes Star Diagnostic scanner will try to connect to Mercedes-Benz database for verification of SCN code in order to program certain control units. That is not possible unless you have purchased a valid license. With that said there may be some basic coding and programming of control units that can be done but this programing can also be performed with other advanced scanners.

Mercedes Star Diagnostic Problems with Software (Xentry) VM Ware Installation: All the setups that you see for sale that state that they use VMware environments are not legitimate hardware and software. Besides the fact that these scanners are not legal copies, they are also prone to crashing and run much slower than direct Windows installations. Yes, you are required to have a Windows XP with a serial port for the MB Star Diag C3 scanner. Many VMWare Mercedes Star Setups experience problems some of which you can see posted on this site: MB SD C4 C3 problems and solutions.

License: In order to get the full features offered by Mercedes Star diagnostic scanner you need to sigh up for a yearly subscription and pay a license fee. This is not financially feasible if you only work on one or two Mercedes-Benz models. If you end up buying a cloned version of the scanner the Xentry software key will expire in a few years and you will not be able to use your scanner at all.
Top Alternatives to Mercedes Star Diagnostic Scanner C3 & C4 Tool

In our opinion, there are better alternatives for those who like to do their own troubleshooting. Whether you are a repair shop a Mercedes-Benz owner consider these scanners as well. Note that we do not endorse any of the following OBD II / CAN scanner brands. Links to OBD2TOOL and eBay listing are provided if you need to check current prices.

Carsoft 7.4 multiplexer: This is a much less expensive scanner than Mercedes Star Diagnostic C3 or C4. While it does require a laptop to run, using the carsoft 7.4 is much easier than using the Xentry software. One other advantage of this scanner is that it comes with several cables such as the 38 pin connector for the older models. It has a good coverage of models such including the popular models such as E-Class, C-Class, S-Class, CLK-Class, GL-Class, G-Class and more. The main disadvantage of this scanner that while it can read and erase fault codes it can not perform programming.

If you search the online resellers you will find Mercedes Star Diagnsotic C3 and C4 listed for sale. You have to be careful when buying online as many of these units may  not be original.

Mercedes Benz MB Star C3 vs C4

MB Star C3: It requires a laptop so that you can troubleshoot your Mercedes-Benz via Xentry software. While on paper it is slower than MB Star C4, it has proven to be a very reliable and robust scanner that is not plauged with WiFI connectivity issues like the Star C4.

MB Star C4 is the latest Mercedes-Benz wireless multiplexers that can connect to your PC via wireless connection. Being the latest Diagnostic Scanner for Mercedes-Benz it works faster, once you resolve any connectivity issues that is.

Autel Maxisys MS906 Diagnostic System Part Of Customer

February 9, 2019 by Lily white  

Autel-Maxisys-MS906

Autel MaxiSYS MS906 is an updated version of Maxidas DS708. It has better configuration but same good function.Here is some customer feedback for this device.

1: I love this tool, it performs as well as or even better than my Snap-on 2500. The help feature is awesome the information it provides makes finding the problems and fixing them with ease. It not only read the codes, but also allows you to perform certain active test while the vehicle is running.
Any DIYer can use this machine and make repairs with very little effort. Well worth the price.

2: Best bang for your buck hands down, I’m a master technician with ten years experience as a professional tech. For the money this scanner does more than any of its competitors for a fraction of the price. It puts my snap on scanner to shame! Does almost every make and model I program keys with it, reset adaption and service lights, look at live data,run tests, etc can’t go wrong.

3: It is an amazing tool. I can independently slave individual component to a manual operation. It is touch screen and has SD cards to save information so that an internal power source isn’t required to save memory.This has came in great use several times already.

4: I got the scanner in today. Overall I am very very happy with the unit. It does about 90% of what factory scanners do. And for the price its the best bang for the buck. It puts Snap on and others to shame for the cost. It provides many live data streams from the vehicle. I would buy it again.

5: This is a phenomenon , the best smart scan tool , I love it to bits , the updates are free for one year, easy to download, well done Autel, I can’t believe how easy it is to use ….
I highly recommend this to anyone who is a serious Tech . .

Why 09.2014 Xentry XDOS is best for Part D (C3)

January 13, 2019 by Lily white  

The reason why Xentry Diagnostic Openshell version 09.2014 is the best software for C3 Star is that:

anything after Xentry 09.2014 you have to do too many fixes to get it fully working..

For those with C3 mux, YOU HAVE TO KNOW:

11.2012 Xentry: best for OFFLINE PROGRAMMING

09.2014 Xentry: the BEST – the most famous and favorite

12.2015 Xentry: advise to use xentry xp/xdos up to 12/2015

05.2016 Xentry: the LAST version working with PartD aka C3

07.2018 Xentry: the NEWEST version but better work with MB SD Connect C4 or Xentry Connect C5

If there is any chance it will work with C3, the first thing is to play with toolkit.ini

It will be in c:program filesMercedes-BenzSDconnect Toolkitbintoolkit.ini or C:Program Files (x86)Mercedes-BenzSDconnect Toolkitbintoolkit.ini

There will be a line that says UseComPorts=

Here add the port number you wish to use.

Note that since 2016-01 part D is replace with part Z (bosch vci). so if you want to use C3, you have to use old driver.

In summary, version 09.2014 is the best for your C3!!

Upload images of C3 and XDOS 09.2014 working perfect…

December 23, 2018 by Lily white  

Fly FVDI ABRITES Commander on Win10 64bit get error for mfc110u.dll. Here are 4 optional solutions for sharing.

Solution:

Option 1.

Results: tried, still same.

Option 2:

Try installing it on win7/32bit. Mine works only on 32bit OS

Also works on win 8.1 64bit without problem

Option 3:

You could install it in a VM running win7 32bit, or you could dual boot into a copy of win7 32bit perhaps.

Option 4:

uninstall all microsoft visual redistributable packages and install 2010 x86 and 2012 x86 versions from official microsoft site. You cand find it easily by searching on google ‘download microsoft visual redistributable 2010’ and ‘download microsoft visual redistributable 2012’. Make sure you get x86 versions.

That’s how I got it to work on Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

If other apps need other versions of visual redistributable you may install them afterwards.
