BMW Programming: ISTA-P vs WinKFP vs E-sys

November 15, 2018 by diycar  

This is for those who are interested in tools used for programming/flashing a BMW car.


There is ISTA-P and E-SYS and Winkfp.


ISTA-P(ISSS-NEXT): Programming and coding software system

WINKFP: Engineer Software for E series, for programming


E-SYS: Engineer Software for F series (available for programming and coding)

ISTA vs WinKFP vs E-sys:


Which one should you use and why?


What are the advantages and disadvantages to use the one or the other?


ISTA: simple, mainly new modules

WinKFP: main use is on Used Modules or Modified cars

E-sys: is a substitution for WinKFP

This world now has toooooo much money a float(read note#1)... before i used many used modules and so i used WinKFP... now a day i tell to people NO MORE USED Modules ONLY NEW so therefor i MAINLY use ISTA...... Many Shops in USA using AutoLogic Diag system... about a 1~1.5 year ago Autologic made an updated of it's software and now it does not allow to use used module.

So now a days in USA it's kinda a standard to use NEW modules ONLY everywhere you go (European cars)

If you mention "can mechanic use used module in my car" you get a respond maybe some other shop by not this one

Note: In South Bay Area California about a week ago or two it has been made into a law that if a family of 2 makes $250,000 or less, then family considers to be LOW-INCOME family, basically a homeless family.

Why do i need a hassle to reprogram used module when people that make $200+K are homeless... Driving a BMW.....

The last...

ISTA P will program used modules no problem in expert mode as long as it's the correct version of the module. Done it many times. But winkfp is easier.

But FYI, ISTA/P will not always program used modules.

Used modules such as airbag control unit in e6x will no proceed for example. Because of the non matching VIN number.

Will have to use WinKFP for this as it erases the VIN then encode the module.

Other modules such as active steering wheel control module to in E6x will not be flashed in ISTA/P if used. VIN will need to be erased first.

How to activate "Flight Recorder" for Micropod 2 & VCI Pod

November 12, 2018 by diycar  

Look here: built a trigger and activate "Flight Recorder" for Micropod 2 & VCI Pod

I know the MicroPod 2 and Witech has a "Flight Recorder" mode. This would be great to use for datalogging as most aftermarket OBD scan tools can't access some options on a Chrysler product like, knock sensing, trans temps, etc....

Does anyone have or have used the Trigger for the MicroPod 2?

Has anyone built a trigger to activate "Flight Recorder" for the micropod 2?

Here you go.

It is the older trigger that was used on the VCI pods that had a RJ11 connector (phone cord). In order to use it on the new MicroPods there is a RJ11 to MicroUsb adapter needed.

I guess I'm going to start hunting for the older trigger for the VCI pods now

Here's what the VCI Pod or StarMobile trigger looks like. This is also the same one used for the MicroPod but with an adapter.

I should have a Witech Flight Recorder trigger in my hands shortly. Once I do, Ill crack it open. The one component I'm lacking is the RJ11 to Mini USB adapter. After searching for hours on line I can't seem to find the part number for the Witech adapter for the trigger. Worst case scenario I ill just rig one up, but I'd rather find the correct one to use.

We'll my Witech trigger showed up that is used to activate or deactivate the flight recorder using the VCI Pod or the Micropod 2. I actually expected something a little bit more elaborate with microchips, resistors, etc...

Nope, it's just a basic momentary on/off switch with a couple of led's on the TX/RX circuit

This switch costed me $55 shipped "USED" just so I could finally tear one open to see what on the inside. For those of you that can make simple circuits you can duplicate this trigger for cheap.

I also have to make an RJ11 to Mini-USB adapter to plug into my micropod as I can't seem to find one prebuilt or even find an OE styled adapter.

Once I have the trigger connected, I'll post my results on if it worked or not

Well tonight I tried the "Keep it simple stupid" method be using an available RJ12/RJ11 port that I had for wiring the home phone system. It is designed to allow you to push wires into slits and drop a cover over it just like you would for RJ45/ethernet wiring.

I made the mistake of not testing the resistance between point A and point B and when I did the test it was a failure. When I came back into the house I tested the adapter and go figure the connections between the RJ11 adapter and the mini usb port were not solid.

So I'm going the hard way by soldering the points "A to B" to be sure there is a solid connection without using the home style adapter for home networking.

Also I will note, you "Can Not" bench test the flight recorder. You have to be plugged into a vehicle for you to enable the flight recorder. I had my micropod2 setup on a 12v supply to power it up so I could "Try" it and it would not work.

So further updates will have to be posted......

We'll the RJ11 to Mini-USB adapter should work, but the problem I totally forgot about was the FightRecorder is setup using WiFi to the Micropod2 and it gets disabled once connected to a USB port.

So unless a clone has the ability for WiFi, there isn't a way to enable the flight recorder. For those of you that "Do" have a legit MicroPod 2 the pictures above show you what is needed to create your own flight recorder trigger as long as you understand basic electronics.

PSA IMMO tool: What is it, How to use, Car List, Review

November 12, 2018 by diycar  

User manual: PSA IMMO tool & PIN code calculator for Peugeot and Citroen from 2001 to 2018


PSA IMMO tool is able to extract the pin code from PSA engines

You can read the pin code from the ECU memory of all the engines

Control Units, Sagem, Johnson controls and Valeo BSI units

Car list:

Peugeot and Citroen from 2001 to 2018


The device has two main functions: one is the calculation of the pin code through obd, which detects the signal from bsi to ecu. The obd pin code needs the operating key.

Another function is the programming of the emulator

It allows you to enter the postal code in the EMU so that the car operates without a key.

How to:

The device has two modes of operation:

Mode-1 Calculator:

Connect the OBD Cable supplied to the car

and select "calculator"

and then turn the ignition 8 times.

Each time the cycle the ignition against will increase.

In the 8th calculator, start working!

Wait 5 minutes and the security pin will be displayed on the screen

Mode-2 emulator: 

The emulator function will only emulate an operation key once the pin has been calculated.

This can be useful for diagnosing problems with the security system.

Not all cars can be made through the diagnostic port

some cars require the calculator to connect to the CAN H and L cables under the hood.

Basically, if a can H and L connection is available in the diagnosis

Then, you can use the calculator through the OBDII port

If not, it requires a direct connection.

The KP008 has a small LCD backlit small keyboard to navigate the menu a rear

Magnet to help test and secure the device when working under the hood / hood, an OBD

Connector and cable and an additional cable / connectors to work with vehicles that do not

Have CAN BUS located inside the OBD diagnostic connector.


The device can operate on all models based on Peugeot and Citroen from 2001 to 2015 as indicated in

The Application Guide on our website Applications are updated on a regular basis so that

Always check the latest version to make sure you have the information updated before

Try reading the pin code.

The device operates on 2005/2006 vehicles using the OBD port if bus can be available on the

OBD connector for vehicle, however for vehicles before this you can make a direct connection to

The ECU motor connector can connect cables to allow communication with the ECU immobilizer BSI.

The device only works on Peugeot and Citroën derived models and can not read the pin

Fiat Code or Toyota derived models such as the 107 C1 and Scudo as examples

The device is protected by international copyright laws and patent pending status for its exclusive

Design and software

The calculator will work in cars from 2001 until today, as long as it is the type of ORIGINAL PSA engine found in Peugeot and Citroen


1 x Handholder

1 x OBDII Lead

1 x CAN connection cables

(solved) Renault CAN CLiP disconnect when using-obd2diy.fr

November 5, 2018 by diycar  

Renault CAN CLiP feedback:

CANCLIP interface disconnects automatically when i’m using it...

I am using CAN CLIP with PCB as follows: (it’s item no. SP19-D)

Source: http://www.obd2diy.fr/wholesale/renault-can-clip-diagnostic-interface.html

Tech support via http://www.obd2diy.fr/:

Hi, I’m sorry to hear that.

For the connection issues of CAN CLIP Renault SP19-D, you’re advised to rework the PCB:

Solder and make the two connection

Then it will work again.


Renault CAN CLIP diagnostic interface without connection/communication issues.

Source: http://www.obd2diy.fr/wholesale/multidiag-actia-2014-1-plus-can-clip-renault.html

It’s the Quality A+++ CAN CLIP for Renault,1:1 clone of the original

In the PCB, engineers add the high quality chip CYPRESS AN2135SC or CYPRESS AN2136SC.

This chip AN2135SC/AN2136SC solved communication issues of old CLIP versions. That make CLIP work more stable and can be used for a longer time.

Using other versions of Renault CLIP, the diagnostic interface will disconnect if users have no operation for 10 minutes around after successful communication to the car.

That’s all we can do for you about Renault CAN CLiP connection issues and how to solve.
