How to repair Range Rover TPMS with Autel Sensors

Background:
The car has a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) and 5 sensors (4 wheels + spare). In October, messages about pressure testing in all tires began to appear on the dashboard with the indicator on fire, then these messages disappeared and the indicator went out. Reading errors through SDD did not give a result (no errors). The system is extremely simple 4 antennas and 1 unit (located in the rear right sidewall). Having called the antenna to break the short circuit, I found out that everything is fine with them. The block itself remained in question. After conducting a study (a series of tests to check the performance), it turned out that the unit responds to a decrease in pressure in the wheels but forgets these values. After opening the unit, he discovered that he turned green, cleaned it, put it in its place … the module’s working capacity did not return.

replacement (new unit at the top)
Changed new module in places, diagnosed using SDD (read module, initialized new unit). When the unit was initialized, the program asked either to enter the 8-digit codes of all 5 wheels or drive for 15 minutes and then install the spare wheel instead of standing on the car. For me it seemed difficult, so I started the auto display, there are no messages, I was glad and went home. After 15 minutes of movement, a system failure message popped up, after reading the errors, found that there was no response from all 4 new AUTEL MX-sensors. It turns out the sensors are sold asleep and are programmed for a specific make model and year of the car at atmospheric pressure (if installed on the car, it should be lowered). It is necessary to find a person with a device for programming or buy a Autel MaxiTPMS pad to program by yourself.

and dropping an error module TPMS went home with the confidence that I would have to plug in a computer and prescribe sensor numbers manually, since I did not want to engage in shamanism with a spare wheel. BUT … a miracle happened and the system picked up all the sensors and after 40 minutes the system did not fail. Now on the tidy does not annoy me amber flat tire icon.

How to Install and Program Autel TPMS MX-Sensors to Mazda

This problem is familiar to many owners of new cars equipped with a regular tire pressure monitoring system – TPMS . Battery life in the sensors of the system is about 5-7 years . Therefore, if your car is older, then this problem will either annoy you or start annoying soon.
When the system cannot find a sensor in the wheel, it happily notifies about this by a flashing indicator on the dashboard:
install-autel-tpms-sensor-0
It is not surprising if we recall the battery life of 5-7 years: the sensors I bought were obviously older.
Began to look for alternatives to native sensors, only new ones.  But then I found a solution that I liked right away: universal programmable sensors.
These sensors pretend to be regular, and the car sees them as original.
Their cost is low compared to the original.
Their essence is that you can sew up any ID and algorithm of operation for any car with regular tpms into this sensor.
The restriction is only in frequency, because for American vehicles tpms works at a frequency of 315 MHz, and for all others – 433 MHz. The choice fell on the Autel tech – it produces a bunch of equipment for auto diagnostics, including tpms universal sensors.
Since I have an American model Mazda, a set of sensors to 315MHz and programmer for them was purchased (it is universal, have both 315, and 433)
You need:
Sensors The Autel MX Sensor 315mhz – 4pcs
programmer Autel MaxiTPMS Pad
Here is a list of supported cars, it is very extensive : www.maxitpms.com/getCoverage.jspx
install-autel-tpms-sensor-1
A few comparative photos with dead original sensors:
install-autel-tpms-sensor-2
Above: original sensor. Bottom: Autel MX-sensor
install-autel-tpms-sensor-3
orig sensor
install-autel-tpms-sensor-4
Autel MX 315mhz
Install the tpms software for the programmer TPMS PAD
install-autel-tpms-sensor-5
It is necessary to choose a car, model, year.
And further 3 options:
1) test – read data from sensors – go, pressure, temperature charge (if available). You can read not only Autel sensors, but also standard, OEM sensors in wheels! For example, in order to view the ID of the standard sensors or look at the charge level (not all OEM sensors support this)
2) clone regular. If there is a set of live native sensors, then clones can be made – for a winter set of wheels, for example, then you will not have to reassign the sensors to the car.
3) generate new IDs – then the car will require you to attach new sensors – on most cars this procedure happens automatically, you have to go a little and the car will determine everything itself.
Since I didn’t have my own registered sensors from the car, my third option is to generate new ones.
Put Autel MX-sensors into car
install-autel-tpms-sensor-6
I drove to the office and smart guys help install the sensors
install-autel-tpms-sensor-7
In an hour and a half, slowly put all 4 sensors and reinstall the wheels:
install-autel-tpms-sensor-8
install-autel-tpms-sensor-9
New sensors for 15g are lighter than standard ones, so everything was installed perfectly.
There is an instruction on how to register new sensors, there is a whole procedure there.
install-autel-tpms-sensor-10
Some time later, ObdLink + Forscan connected, saw that the car sees new sensors, 4 pressures and 4 temperatures. By the way, only FORScan sees, in addition to the control modules of the motor, also tpms, abs, dsc, srs, electric booster, etc.
install-autel-tpms-sensor-11
Wheels pumped up to 2.6, the lamp went out.
The system works!)
install-autel-tpms-sensor-12
install-autel-tpms-sensor-13
In fact, this scanner can read sensors right on the machine!

How to Flash Chevrolet Cruze Simtec 76 ECU with Kess V2

Today I was flashing the engine control unit on the Chevrolet Cruze A J300 2012Y 1.8L AT.
The car arrived with errors after the service, where they changed the rear lambda, put a trick, checked the wiring, cut the cat, etc:
kess-v2-chevrolet-cruze-catalyst-control-1
The owner of the car is already tired of all this, so it was decided to flash the calibration under E2.
What I actually did)) Siemens Simtec 76.1 control unit :
kess-v2-chevrolet-cruze-catalyst-control-2
For the firmware, we will use the KESS V2 Master V4.036 programmer :

kess-v2-master
Go.
Launch KSuite :
kess-v2-chevrolet-cruze-catalyst-control-3
Select the Chevrolet Cruze with the specified control unit:
kess-v2-chevrolet-cruze-catalyst-control-4
We fall into this menu:
kess-v2-chevrolet-cruze-catalyst-control-5
To begin, let’s make the identification of the ecu, choose the ID :
kess-v2-chevrolet-cruze-catalyst-control-6
Kess v2 displays ecu information
kess-v2-chevrolet-cruze-catalyst-control-7
HW: 10123891AM
SW: CAO95B20.DAT
VIN nr .:
SW ver .:
Spare: 25182010
Engine: F1G3
HW Ver .: SIMTEC76
SW upg .: J8IB20A4.DR
Installation:
Now we will read the ecu, select READING :
kess-v2-chevrolet-cruze-catalyst-control-8
In this case, the ecu is read ~ 5min, its correct size is 1Mb, it contains caliber. Send the file for calibration, or buy the edited firmware file. Next we will record, choose WRITING :
kess-v2-chevrolet-cruze-catalyst-control-9
Then select the desired file:
kess-v2-chevrolet-cruze-catalyst-control-10
We write the edited calibers:
kess-v2-chevrolet-cruze-catalyst-control-11
Recording takes about 1min. Now we will remove errors that could appear during the recording process, choose TOOL :
kess-v2-chevrolet-cruze-catalyst-control-12
In the new submenu, press DEL ERRORS :
kess-v2-chevrolet-cruze-catalyst-control-13
We agree with all that the system offers us. We see that the task is successfully completed:
kess-v2-chevrolet-cruze-catalyst-control-14
We start the car, we do not observe extra errors on the back lambda, that’s good.
All good.

How to Tell ELM327 Code Scanner Hardware V1.5 and V2.1

Let’s start with the fact that you do not visually distinguish between two versions of the adapter.

Differences between ELM327 adapters version 1.5 and 2.1
Their differences lie in different microcontrollers and their firmware.

elm327-firmware-v15-1

elm327-firmware-v15-2

ELM327 v1.5 PCB display

elm327-firmware-v21-1

elm327-firmware-v21-2

ELM327 adapter version 2.1

Version 2.1 began to be released in 2014. We are talking about the Chinese version of the adapter ELM327. Adapters manufactured on the basis of the original Elmelectronics chip are very expensive for the average consumer (only version 2.1 chip costs $ 21). Unlike ELM327 v1.5 (v1.4), which are based on the “borrowed” firmware of the original ELM327 code reader, version 2.1 is a completely original development of the Chinese and has nothing in common with the original ELM327. These adapters were developed and tested, apparently, under Torque, Scanmaster, etc., with which they work satisfactorily.

Actually, why it does not work: firstly, it is not supported, or a number of AT-commands ELM327 are supported incorrectly. Secondly, in some places the adapter behaves just inadequately, for example, it does not return a response from the modules or partially returns it. How it looks to the user: the adapter finds the diagnostic program, but then either cannot connect to the car or identify it.

In an attempt to make their products cheaper, make them more compact, etc. Chinese developers sacrifice quality and reliability. At the same time, new adapters are tested on popular programs, such as Torque, with which problems usually do not arise, because OBDII protocol is simpler and adapter requirements are much less.

ELM327 Protocols

ELM327 adapter version 2.1 does not support or does not fully support the ISO9141-2 and ISO14230-4 (KWP2000) protocol, in most cases communication with the ECU is not established.

If the ATIB10, ATAL, ATSW00 commands receive the answers: “question mark (?)” (The ATIB10 should have the answer OK, and not the elm327 version of the adapter), then this adapter does not support non-standard protocols. If to connect to your computer (January, Mikas, Delphi … Auto: VAZs, Chery Tiggo, Nissan, Toyota JDM …) you need to register initialization lines, then you probably don’t install the connection using the elm327 version 2.1 adapter!

What version of ELM327 is needed

What conclusion can be drawn from the above and what recommendations?

If you have a car before 2005, VAZ, if you want to use some unapproved programs for diagnostics, or you need to register an initialization string to connect to your control unit, then it is better to buy an adapter with version 1.5.

If you have a modern car, not older than 10 years, you don’t know any initialization lines and you are not going to register, you will use common diagnostic programs, for example Torque, then you will most likely have an adapter with version 2.1.
