How to DIY MB Star Diagnosis

October 11, 2018 by paulakeener  

This is a post I read on the forum and find that it get lots of good comments, so I think there may be more people need and post on the blog for sharing.

I would help out a few Autonumen.com MB brothers with a couple star diagnostic tutorials…

Note: this is DAS/XENTRY Software with mb star diagnosis.
Free download: http://down.mbstarsgop.com/download/xentry.zip

First, Lowering the car.
Get to the 211 Section.

You will get to the main menu

Then go to Function performed by more than one control unit.

Then Chassis

Then Level adj

Then Suspension

And here is where people have problems, they just go to actuations and then lower it, IT WILL NOT STAY LOWERED this way, you have to go to initial startup

Then Initial with manual settings

Then F2

Here you will see a screen that shows the voltages which correspond to the height of the vehicle. they must be within the given ranges in the left hand column. use the + and – buttons to lower the car (In my screenshot I am in the car with a friend in the back seat, so that is why it is at 3.27, it should not exceed 3) Then hit F2

Enter in these inclination angles and if the car is within the voltages supplied in the page before, the car will accept the new lowered setting, if not it will reject it.

Now, how to activate the unlock and lock beep (honestly, one of the best mods to do if you have an older model e55)
First Control units

Then Body

Then rear SAM

Then Control unit adaptations

Then national version of ATA function

At this screen you will see a pull down menu with a list of different regions on it. The only ones you need to worry about are USA with buzzer and Netherlands. If you choose USA, i will give you three short quick beeps when you lock the car and one short when you unlock it. Netherlands will give you three longer beeps when you lock the car and one long when you unlock it. Personal preference on which one you like. Then hit F3

Then F3(YES)

Hope this helps out some people. I really did not find a good DIY for Star Diagnostics, so I thought I would help out!

Car Flash ECU Programmer From autonumen

October 10, 2018 by paulakeener  

Whether you’re a home car owner or an auto mechanic — you can save thousands of dollars on car maintenance, save time and effort on repairs, and dramatically improve your cars lifespan/performance — by getting yourself a professional car diagnostics scanner.
They’re called Auto Scanner Tools. And will give you an instant overview of your vehicles condition by tapping into it’s computer chip.

But more importantly, you can also obtain software that will allow you to edit the cars performance data. Like adjusting RPM, fuel injection, etc. This is what car performance shops charge thousands of dollar for — to allow the car to operate more fuel efficiently, faster or with stronger torque/BHP.
The good news is, you can do the same at fraction of a cost, with a USB connection interface to your laptop, and car ECU tuning software.

On vehicles, a list of flash updates that are available can be found on Vehicle PCM Calibration Information website at www.autonumen.com

The actual reprogramming procedure for a typical GM vehicle goes as follows:

1.Check the calibration history of the vehicle — Go to the web page at www.autonumen.com and see what latest program is for the vehicle using the vehicle’s VIN number. If the programming has been updated to correct a problem, it will be listed on the website
2.Connect your PC to the Tech 2 scan tool with a RS232 cable pass-through device.
3.Start the GM recalibration software program on your PC and enter the vehicle application information (year, make, model, etc.).
4.Connect the Tech 2 scan tool to the diagnostic connector on the vehicle (located under the dash near the steering column).
5.Switch the Tech 2 scan tool on and wait for the Start Screen.
6.Validate the vehicle VIN number.
7.Choose the operating system, engine, fuel system, speedometer or transmission.
8.Select “normal reprogramming” or “VCI” (special modifications).
9.Choose the update bulletin/recalibration number from the menu.
10.Start the transfer of data. The reprogramming procedure takes about three minutes, and can be done with the computer in or out of the vehicle. The PC screen will display a blue progress bar as the software is uploading to the vehicle.
NOTE: The GM setup won’t allow the same calibration to be reinstalled over itself. Only an updated calibration can be loaded into the vehicle computer.
11.When the software has finished loading, the message “PROGRAMMING COMPLETE” will appear.
12.The scan tool can now be disconnected from the vehicle (turn ignition off first), and any subsequent relearning procedures that may be needed such as the crankshaft position variation relearn procedure can now be performed to finish the update.

Autel MaxiSys Elite Diagnostic Tool Common problem solving methods

September 27, 2018 by paulakeener  

1. updating MaxiFlash Elite to firmware 3.21? My maxisys communicate with the MaxiFlash J2534 but Maxiflash elite cannot communicate with any cars!
To resolve this problem , go to www.auteltehc.com and go support and updates ,and live chat with the representative and they’ll help you to resolve the issue .

2. How to install Google play store in Autel maxisys elite
you can download Google chrome on elite. Just search Google chrome apk file and download and install it. After that you can access pro demand and identifix

3. I’m trying to program BMW car and I cannot. All the hardware are done
You still need to within your free update period , you need a good WIFI connection to your network and internet from your work area , and Autel’s server to access what programming and advanced coding that is available for the year , make, model, and module of the BMW. Kind of like a successful Cr@pshoot with Interstellar travel to an Earth like planet to align the CAS afterwards too.

4. I may be silly here but my maxisys elite has NO Ethernet port for BMW programming. I have looked all over the tablet. The only ports I have are 2 x usb, hdmi, otg, headphone and power?
1.Yes Autel has a separate adapter for it. You need to purchase it separately.
2. You can buy any Android compatible ethernet-USB adapter from any place. But you have to be sure that works with Android, because if the adapter is just for PC it will not work with the tablet.

5. how to programming the vehicle modules
Autel MaxiSys Elite / Autel MaxiSys Pro MS908P can only support to program BMW and Benz. You can refer to http://www.autel.com/u/cms/www/201501/282132017pvy.pdf

6. My Autel Scan Tool Maxisys Elite Multitask will not turn on.
you need to go to System Setting->App Switcher, please select it.

7. I cannot get my MaxiSys Elite to send reports or anything with the email option. It also do not want to print to my wireless HP Deskjet 4645 altough i pick it up. I have my Maxisys running from my iPad hotspot.
What’s your system version? Please go to Maxisys-Update to download all the latest system version and try again. Our current version can’t support to Wi-Fi printer, so you need to install Maxisys PC link in your PC to print the doc out.

8. I can’t find the vehicles that covereged by maxisys elite in the website
I need to buy this device but first I need to know the vehicles covered,
Plus, how much is for renewal for this device
Function list here: http://pro.auteltech.com/measurecar-1-1.html?m=4 and it’s USD1295 for renewal

9. I have problem with latest Benz update, installation bar goes up to 50% and give message installation error, there is no app Benz in uninstall section.
please check and see is there a benz folder under below path: “ES files EXPLORER—-scan—vehicle–Europe—–Benz”. If there is one, please delete it. Also delete it if you find one under “ES files EXPLORER—scan—download” and “Maxisys—data manager—Apps Uninstall”. Then restart Maxisys elite and re-load and install the Benz software.

10. How to program key for my car ?
Try the following:
IMMO -> 1.Immobilizer Setup -> Add and Delete Keys

11.Which is the activation code because I don’t have it please
Do you mean the register code? You can find it in Maxisys-About page.

12. how I can used e-mail sending by max?
There is an Email app pre-installed in Maxisys , marked in red below. You can set your email account step by step.

14. I am using Autel maxisys Elite, and the internal memory almost full. I bought a SD card (32GB), how can I do that new updates will be written into SD card not internal memory?
Our tool can’t accept external SD card to install vehicle software. It is suggested you format the SD card and download BMW, Benz, VW, which has big size first. Then you can download other vehicles.
