Lexia 3 Diagbox on Windows 8 works well with Peugeot 407

Lexia 3 cables arrived last Saturday. And fun began with a Peugeot 407.

It took 5 days from order to delivery.
I bought 8 units, one for myself and others for my customers. I have a shop to sell vehicle diagnostic tools, in Moscow, Russia.
lexia3-diagbox
there mainly are two kinds of Chinese Lexia3. One cheaper but lack some chips, the other with full chips of high quality.

I disassembled one unit to look the board, said it’s 1:1 clone of the original.

Satisfied!

I will try and report it here.

EDIT: Today i helped one customer install Diagbox sw on his Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit. He’s using a MSI laptop

CGDI MB Prog Read Write Renew NEC on Adapter

CGDI Prog MB key programmer new software 2.0.0.0 can renew original NEC mcu.


Explorer the new CGDI MB 2.0.0 software, still not get PSW from NEC on adapter but it allow to renew original NEC mcu now.

The CGDI MB main unit is in red. I personaly don't like red, so i painted it into white.

connect CGDI with NEC adapter, and laptop

AK500 Pro2 vs. AK500 Pro vs. AK500 Plus vs. AK500+

Mercedes key programmer: AK500 PRO2 vs. AK500Pro vs. AK500 Plus vs. AK500+
What’s the difference?

Each machine works great in MB key programming
Powerful Motorola MCU Programming
Directly read dumps of EEPROM (HC908) and Flash (HC912, HC9S12, HC9S12X) for motorola MCU, in support of the engine ECU of Benz, VW and Audi etc.

MPC (MPC555/556, MPC561/562, MPC563/564),
External Flash (MB58BWO 16, 29BL802C, AM29BDD 160, S29CD0 16, DE28F800 etc.)
and External EEPROM (M95xxx)
Works perfect in car ecu repair and programming, odometer adjustment and key programming as well.

But they are kind of different. Look at the chart:
AK500 PROG 2 and AK500 Pro share the same features, while AK500 Plus and AK500+ share the same functions.
MB Key ProgrammerAK500+AK500 PlusAK500 ProAK500 Pro2
Read & Write EISYes, no issues on HC705/HC908/HC912/9S12Yes, no issues on HC705/HC908/HC912/9S12
MB original factory key calculatorNOYES
Remove ESL/ESM/ECUYes, it needs to remove ESL/ESM/ECU to synchronize dataNo need to remove ESL/ESM/ECUSupport calculating key only need EIS data
Write old model big keysNo, it doesn’t support infrared write old modelbig key (Motorola CPU)Yes, it supports infrared write old model big key(Motorola CPU)
Program infrared keysYes, it program infrared keys for Mercedes Benz from 1998 to 2005Yes, it program infrared keys for all Mercedes from 1998 to 2011
Program W203 W211 keysNOYes, it supports MB W203/W211 key programming withECU flash 29F400 and 29F800
Read & write “Key-less go” KeyNOYes, it supports reading and writing “Key-less go” key
Reset SBC computerYes, but not via OBD to read and write SBC EEPROMYes, it can read and write SBC EEPROM via OBD.
Supper EGSNo, it doesn’t support EGS which is 722.9 typeof gearbox computerYes, it supports EGS which is 722.9 type of gearbox computer
DatabaseYes, it needs 320G database to support ESL fast unlocksNo need database and supports ESL fast unlocks
In summary,

1) AK500+/AK500 plus with SKC (SK110) has no 8PIN EEPROM adapter holder, because AK500+/AK500 plus with SKC only needs to read out EIS data and send the data to SKC calculator to calculate, then complete key matching;
The old version AK500+/AK500 plus has 8PIN EEPROM adapter holder to help read and write ESM data, because AK500+/AK500 plus needs to de-solder EIS, ESM and ESL ECU when it makes Mercedes Benz key.
2) AK500+/AK500 plus with SKC (SK110) support more car models than old version AK500.
3) AK500 pro/AK500 pro2 can’t make key if without SKC calculator; while old version AK500 pro can make key.
4) AK500 pro/AK500 pro2 with SKC calculator doesn’t contain external EEPROM (M95xxx), so it does not need to deal with M95xxx, because AK500+/AK500 plus contains SKC calculator, after AK500+/AK500 plus read out EIS data and send it to SKC calculator to calculate, the key data is acquired; The old version AK500 Pro contains 95XXX, AK500 need to remove chip 95XXX and weld it on the 95XXX adapter.

AK500Pro Features & Functions:
1. Faster and safer to write MCU.
2. Internal Benz original factory key generator.
3. Support NEC fast renew, Motorola MCU safe read and write.
4. Support infrared read and write NEC key and Motorola MCU key.
5. Support Benz read and write “Key-less go” Key.
6. Support through OBD port active Key-less function.
7. Key test function: more easier to test key and EIS(ESL).
8. Support ESL fast unlock, no need 32G database.
9. Support through OBD read and write SBC data, easier for change SBC control unit.
– Does AK500PRO support Mercedes Benz W204 after 2008?
– So far, AK500PRO doesn’t support NEC eeprom key programming, but support AK500pro NEC eeprom key calculation.
W204 is with NEC eeprom, therefore AK500pro neither supports W204 nor supports the following Mercedes Benz models: w204/w207/w221/w218 and W164 after 2008 year which EIS model CPU is NEC.
Important Notice of KEYLESS GO function :
If you want to use KEYLESS GO function: the key used to make key must be new and blank key, it can’t be used key. New key must be as the same type and frequency as the original keyless go key. Otherwise it will cannot support keyless go function.
AK500 do ESL: read out original ESL data, generate new key data, write new data .binw back to ESL( now must use that 32GB hard disk database then can renew ESL)
When you deal W203 ECU, if your ECU is simens, it do not have eeprom. Resolution: Read flash of ecu, then make renew. Then use MB STAR to do doing.
AK500PRO can write keyless go key. But you must wirte via IR( Your keyless go key must be completely new or blank. If your key is old, it can read out date, then it can not be write again, you must renew it then can write).

Toyota Techstream Erase transmitter ID2 Code C2122

Here we will share experience about how to erase transmitter ID2 code C2122 and add new TPMS sensor on Toyota Lexus or Scion. Help it helps!

What tools you need for erase transmitter ID2 code C2122?

After a quick look online, i get the software and USB adapter (it’s called mini vci with tecshtream software) for usually under $25 shipped.

Don’t pay high insane dealer fees!! Also I have no idea how to do aftermarket TPMS sensors. I ONLY put OEM parts in my Toyota Vehicles. So I know there is some other weird programming you have to do with the aftermarket sensors.

I got this OEM Denso TPMS Sensor from obdii365.com for $35 shipped. MAKE SURE you know the CORRECT TPMS DENSO PART NUMBER for your vehicle!!! There are a few different ones this software will do ALL OEM sensors but you need to make sure you have the right sensor!!!

Note: We are not responsible for the damage. 

Procedure:
techstream-erase-code-c2122-1
techstream-erase-code-c2122-2

TPMS is not ON actually. Flashing means that i have an actual tire so it’s not that i have low tire even though i could have a low tire. It’s the fact, there must be something wrong with the TPMS.

Then go to the software Teachstream:
Click on Connect to vehicle
Confirm vehicle info: Toyota Highlander 2010, 2GR FE, W/O Smart key
techstream-erase-code-c2122-3
Select The Pressure Monitor
techstream-erase-code-c2122-4
Code C2122: cannot receive data from transmitter ID2
techstream-erase-code-c2122-5
Go to data list and read ID2 code
techstream-erase-code-c2122-6
Tire ID2 location
techstream-erase-code-c2122-7
BD7540 means a bad old sensor
techstream-erase-code-c2122-8
Then back to Toyota Teachstream
Click on Unity
Perform the function of Tire ID registration for the tire pressure warning system
Note: registration will fail if the time limit its exceeded for any step
Warning: registration will fail if the system is still in the process of initialization
techstream-erase-code-c2122-9
Click on Next
techstream-erase-code-c2122-10
Input each transmitter ID code
Press Next to input the next code
Continue until all codes are registered

Click on Exit
Go to data list, concerned parameters are changed
