Program Megane II Key Card with Renault CAN CLIP

Here’s the instruction on Chinese key card Chinese Renault Can Clip.

 

Disclaimer: The tutorial was translated from Russian. You are at your risk.

 

Background:

After replacing the engine, I had one car key card.  I need to add a spare key so I ordered a 3-button spare key card online.

(Renault Clip showed that the key is 433 MHz with support for the remote control function). The key came within a month. The quality is good, but not perfect.

From the original key Renault 7701209132(according to this number, the key without the remote control function) differs in the thickness of the body, which is 0.5 mm thicker than the original key.

The gap between the key card case and the original metal key inserted into it.

There is also a very noticeable gap between the key-card case and the metal key inserted into it. The gap was present both with the Chinese blank for cutting the key, and in the original second key of my car put into the case.

Top: original Renault 7701209132 key card, Bottom: Chinese key card

The thickness of the original key card Renault 7701209132 – 5 mm

renault-megane-3-button-key-6

Key Card bought online – 5.5 mm

Also, due to a 0.5 mm thicker case, a step will be between the key card case and the original metal key inserted in it, since the plastic part of the metal key is thinner.

 

The instruction is applicable only to Renault Megane II phase 1.
For programming the key card used the old V116 version of the program CAN Clip. In the newer version 156 or above it was not possible to flash the key card, since the program required security token, disconnection from the Internet did not help.

If the remote control option is not installed on the machine, then during the initialization of the keys, Clip will warn you that the key with the support of the remote option and the option is not installed on the car, but nevertheless, Clip will allow you to program the key with the remote function.

 

You’ll need:

The new key+ all other keys that need to be operable
Renault Can Clip with a PC running Windows XP or Windows 7

The program RenaultPinExtractor (you can search and download from google)

The program RenaultPinExtractor 2 .

In the folder Renault Pin extractor + immo_code_renault \ immo_code_renault \ Rpe_ \ Renault Pin Extractor.exe file with a virus. The desired program in the folder Renault Pin extractor + immo_code_renault \ with the name RenaultPinExtractor 2.exe

 

Procedure:
Start up the Renault Clip software

renault-can-clip-megane-1

UCH – UCH (central electronic passenger compartment switching unit)

renault-can-clip-megane-2

Enter configuration mode

renault-can-clip-megane-3

Choose encoding/reading

renault-can-clip-megane-4

Select button SC003 Spare/reserve

renault-can-clip-megane-5

Enter 5938 followed by enter when prompted for a code

renault-can-clip-megane-12

We need to write down the ISK code

We need the bytes from 18 up to 23. Some cars do require up to byte 24.

You will get a string of bytes like in DDT2000. ISK is 6 bytes from 18-23. (A special case is Johnson Controls for Logan 2010+ – 7 bytes from 18-24)

renault-can-clip-megane-6

In the top bar you have the Byte ID

In the lower car you have the actual Byte Value.

Open the Renault Pin Extractor

Go to the ISK tab

Select your car and enter the ISK code you just wrote down.

Click to button ISK TO PIN. Then copy the calculated PIN code.

renault-can-clip-megane-7

Go to secured encoding/reading and choose encode cards.

Remove the card from the card slot and press continue

Now we need to present all the cards one at a time, that we want to be able to operate the car with.

Just follow the on screen commands

In ImmoBox you need to select MC9S12DG256 (Megane 2, Scenic 2)

renault-can-clip-megane-8

Now we received an outcode, Write this down. We’ll need it to calculate another code with Renault Pin Extractor.

Go back to Renault Pin Extractor, select Clip tab

renault-can-clip-megane-9

Enter the outcode you just got and enter the VIN number. You can find the VIN at the bottom of your screen.

FAQ John Deere PayLoad (PLD) File Editor

John Deere PayLoad (PLD) File Editor – this is Developer level tool, that allows you to change factory parameters in the PLD files using John Deere Service Advisor.
John-Deere-PLD-File-Editor
With John Deere PLD File Encryptor/Decryptor you can:
-Decrypt PayLoad (PLD) file to txt/ini format
-Modify PLD file expiration
-Modify PLD factory options such as speed limit (for example change 40 km/h to 50 km/h)
-Adjust PLD file to different product serial
-Encrypt PLD file
-Program controller with modified PLD using Service Advisor
-Support Windows XP
Example: How to change speed limit with  pld files?
Q1:
Question about payload files:
I have pld files of my tractor (6330P) 11 in total.
I see in bottom of each files info about my tractor (option, serial number etc)
Question: My goal is up the speed limit from 40km to 50 km. I think I have to change OPTION=3 to OPTION=5, but do I have to edit each 11 pld file?
A1:
You were right about the speed limit:
you can change OPTION=3 to OPTION=4 or any other you need.
Speed_30kmh = 1;
Speed_35kmh = 2;
Speed_40kmh = 3;
Speed_50kmh = 4;
Speed_ECO = 5;
Speed_NoiseRed_OOS = 6;
For R models the line is different. ROADSPEEDLIMIT=3 change to ROADSPEEDLIMIT=5 or any other you need.
var RoadSpeedLimit_30 = “1”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_35 = “2”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_3840 = “3”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_40E = “4”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_50 = “5”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_50E = “6”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_55 = “7”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_60 = “8”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_60E = “9”;
After you change it, sometimes you still need to lift the speed manually through the display (depending on the tractor model)
You only need to reprogram transmission controller for that.
If you reprogrammed all of them, some settings might have went to default so you might get up to 5 fault codes that you need to configure with SA.
Q2:
Does it work with SA 4.2?
A2:
Service Advisor is just a tool to use pld. Pld editor works without SA.
Q3:
I have a question about trying to up the power of a 6330 to a 6430. If I compare the engine pld of both tractor they are identical (just the info in the bottom is different) So I don’t know how it could up the power if all the code is the same??
A3:
most pld files are made for various models, the info at the bottom determines which part of the pld file will be used for programming. For example:
PRODUCT_MODEL_NO=6115
PERFORMANCE_OPTION_PART_NO=R546973
FACTORY_OPTIONS=RE570443
Q4: Do you have John Deere PLD file editor for sale?
A4: Sorry, we don’t have PLD files. You can search or download from google.

Chevrolet Traverse LTZ 2012 TMPS Reset using EL-50448

Today, I’ll chip in words of experience of EL-50448 TPMS reset on my Traverse LTZ 2012.
TPMS Reset Tool:
el-50448-tpms-tool
Car: 2012 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ
TPMS: (this part for newbies only; skip this part if you’re experienced)
– what is TMPS & why do you reset TPMS?
The tire pressure monitor system (TPMS) of the Chevrolet Traverse, model years 2007 – 2013, alerts the driver when a large change in the pressure of one tire exists while the vehicle is being driven.
The system will also display individual tire pressures and their locations on the driver information center (DIC). The TPMS uses the engine control module (ECM), body control module (BCM), instrument panel cluster (IPC), DIC, remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR), a radio frequency (RF) transmitting pressure sensor in each wheel/tire assembly, and the serial data circuit to perform the system functions.
When the vehicle is stationary, the sensors go into stationary mode. In this mode, the sensors transmit once every 60 minutes to minimize sensor battery consumption. As vehicle speed increases, the sensors go into drive mode, in which they transmit once every 60 seconds.
NOTE: The sensor’s pressure accuracy is about 2 psi (14 kPa) at temperatures from 14 degrees Fahrenheit to 158 degrees F (-10 degrees Celsius to 70 degrees C). The RCDLR receives and translates the data contained in each sensor transmission, then sends the tire pressure and tire location data to the DIC. When the TPMS detects a significant loss or gain of tire pressure, a “CHECK TIRE PRESSURE” message will appear on the DIC, and the low tire pressure warning indicator is displayed on the IPC.
The RCDLR has the ability to detect malfunctions within the TPMS. Any malfunctions detected will cause the DIC to display a “SERVICE TIRE MONITOR” warning message.
– when do you reset TPMS?
When the TPMS detects a significant loss of tire pressure, the “CHECK TIRE PRESSURE” message is displayed on the DIC and the low tire pressure indicator is displayed on the instrument panel. Both the message and indicator can be cleared by adjusting the tires to their recommended pressures and driving the vehicle above 25 mph (40 km/h) for at least two minutes. If the warning indicators are still on or the display shows dashes instead of a value, there is a problem in the TPMS. The RCDLR has the ability to detect malfunctions within the TPMS.
Any malfunctions detected will cause the DIC to display a “SERVICE TIRE MONITOR” warning message. See appropriate manufacturer service information.
Review: how to reset TPMS with EL-50448
Remember when you could relearn the tire sensors with nothing more that the DIC and a user’s manual? Well, apparently GM decided that was too much freedom for the owner of one of their vehicles so what was their solution? Make it so the dealer would have to be consulted- and quite possibly for a fee. Well, my troubles are over! I used this on a 2012 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ and following the user’s manual, the horn beeped at the appropriate times and the tires were sensing in the proper position (as tested by releasing air to see a visible change in the DIC). This may seem trivial- until you have a small non-visible leak on a tire and right front is actually left rear!
This was my procedure for those who want to know, and as outlined by the user’s manual starting on page 10-46.
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition to the ON/RUN position with the engine off (the second click before the cranking spot but one click after the acc).
3. Press the Remote Keyless Entry (your key Fob) Transmitter’s LOCK and UNLOCK simultaneously for about five seconds. The horn will beep twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE will be displayed on the DIC.
4. Start with the driver side front tire.
5. Place the relearn tool against the tire sidewall, near the valve stem. Then press the button of your very handy dandy VXScan EL-50448 (after you install a 9-volt battery of course) to activate the TPMS sensor. A horn beep confirms the sensor ID code has been matched to the tire and wheel position.
6. Proceed to the passenger side front tire and repeat the procedure in step 5.
7. Proceed to the passenger side rear tire and repeat the procedure in step 5.
8. Proceed to the driver side rear tire and repeat the procedure in step 5. The horn will beep two times to indicate the sensor ID code has been matched to the driver side rear tire and the TPMS sensor matching process is no longer active. The TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message on the DIC goes off.
9. Turn the ignition to LOCK/OFF.
10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure levels as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.
11. Enjoy your liberation from the GM dealership!

Foxwell NT520 Pro vs. Foxwell NT510 Pros and Cons

Foxwell NT520 vs Foxwell NT510, which one will serve you better? To some people that’s a raging debate; a justifiable one. These two OBD scanners have a lot in common and yet they have significant differences.

foxwell-nt510-vs-foxwell-nt520

Both are entry-level to intermediate tools that cost under $300 in almost all shops. However, the NT510 typically costs slightly less than the NT520.

You may need a few more extra bucks (between 40 and 100, depending on the seller) for the latter.

The price variation is unsurprising seeing as the NT520 is an upgraded version of the NT510. According to Foxwell, the NT520 comes with improved hardware.

But is that all or are there major functional differences to consider? What about their similarities?

All that and more is covered in this Foxwell NT520 vs Foxwell NT510 comparison review. But first here’s a comparison table to get the ball rolling.

THE COMPARISON: Foxwell NT520 vs Foxwell NT510

First things first, both of these diagnostic scanners are made by Foxwell.

The company has a solid reputation for making some of the best OBD scan tools. Meaning both are safe bets, provided the one you pick works on your vehicle.

But ultimately you need one that can meet your specific needs, be it functionally or in terms of construction. And that’s why this review examines all the nitty-gritty details from what each box contains to their functionality.

The package

When buying a scanner you need one that comes as a complete package.

Unless it’s a wireless adapter, make sure the box contains everything you need, ranging from connector cables to connectivity cables, user manual and even a carrying case.

Otherwise, you will be forced to purchase some things separately. Besides being an added expense, you may end up with incompatible or lower quality parts.

foxwell-nt510-vs-foxwell-nt520-2

NT520: in addition to the scanner itself, the Foxwell NT520 box contains a 16-pin OBD adapter, USB cable, memory card, user manual and a carrying pouch. The only thing lacking is an OBD1 connector.

Yes, you may be able to do OBD1 diagnostics with this scanner on select vehicles!

Unfortunately, you don’t get an OBD1 cable, you have to purchase it separately. But if your vehicle is an OBD2 model then the package comes complete.

foxwell-nt510-bmw

NT510: the contents of the Foxwell NT510 box are almost similar to those of the NT520. The only addition here is a CD software. While you can use this scanner for some OBD1 vehicles, it also doesn’t come with the OBD1 connector.

The Verdict: not much of a difference here. If you only want to do OBD2 diagnostics then both packages offer a complete kit. In case you want to add OBD1 diagnostics then you will have to buy the connector.

The NT510 comes with a CD software. Is that a plus? Absolutely not! People don’t use CD-ROMs anymore, you can always download the latest software updates directly from Foxwell’s website.

Design and Interface: FOXWELL NT510 VS NT520

The best entry-level and intermediate diagnostic scanners feature an ergonomic and pocket-size design.
It’s all for portability, and that’s a big consideration because you need a device that you can use anywhere, anytime.
If it can’t fit in your toolbox or driver’s compartment then it probably won’t help you when you’re stranded by the roadside in the middle of nowhere.
  • Additionally, it should have an easy-to-use interface and clear-enough display screen.
Believe it or not, the fewer the buttons/keys the easier it will be to use the scanner. If it has hotkeys your work will be a whole lot easier.
Now back to the Foxwell NT520 vs Foxwell NT510 debate. Which one has the better design and/or interface?

NT520: first off, this scanner is impressively small. Its dimensions are about 6.5 x 3.5 x 8.5 inches and the weight is just under 1.8 pounds.

It is a compact device that can fit in a man or woman’s palm comfortably.

The NT520 has 10 buttons, four of which are for navigation (up/down/left/right). At the center of the navigation buttons is the “Enter” key for selecting an item.

Just above them you have a “Help” button and “Back” button. They do exactly as they are labelled.

Above those two buttons are three more labelled “F1”, “F2” and “F3”. These are hotkeys – shortcuts to your most-used functions.

You can customize them as you please. In short, you can personalize this scanner as much as possible.

The full-color, 2.4˝ TFT screen fitted on the NT520 makes navigation a breeze. It’s definitely not the biggest display unit out there but it shows data with more than decent clarity.

 

NT510: in terms of design, the NT510 looks a whole lot like the NT520. They have the same number of buttons that perform the same functions.

In fact, the two scanners have almost equal dimensions and weight.

The NT510 measures about 8.0 x 1.5 x 4.0 inches and weighs just under 1.5 pounds.

That’s not a significant difference from the NT520’s dimensions and weight. But it boasts a slightly bigger TFT screen of 2.8˝.

There is also a noticeable difference in how the keys are organized. In the NT510 you have the three function keys (F1, F2 and F3) just below the screen, then they are followed by navigation buttons and at the very bottom are the “Back”, “Help” and “Enter” keys.

The Verdict: again, there’s no big difference here. Both scanners are palm-sized, well-constructed and have self-explanatory buttons for navigating their intuitive interfaces.

They both feature three hotkeys for creating shortcuts to critical functions.

So if your biggest concern is getting a scanner that is compact enough and easy to use then both of these earn a spot on your shopping list.

 

Vehicle Compatibility: FOXWELL NT510 VS NT520

Ideally you want a scanner that can cover as many vehicles as possible. That way you will be able to run diagnostics on your own cars, your family’s and even your friends’.

Plus you never know when you will add a new make or model to your collection.

On to today’s topic: Foxwell NT520 vs Foxwell NT510, which one has better compatibility?
NT520: you can buy a universal or a brand-specific Foxwell NT520 diagnostic scanner. Either way, you will get a scanner that supports both OBD1 and OBD2 diagnostics.
As mentioned already, the kit doesn’t include an OBD1 connector, you may want to budget for that in case you want to do OBD1 scans.

While the universal scanner is meant to cover all vehicles, brand-specific NT520s only work on selected vehicle makes.

For instance, there is a Foxwell NT520 for BMW, Rolls Royce and Mini vehicles only.

Rolls-Royce MODELS COVERED

RR1, RR2, RR3, RR4, RR5

There’s also one that covers Audis only. And if you drive a GM there’s a NT520 for that, and another one for Mazda and yet another one for Jeep.

Long story short, Foxwell has NT520 scanners that are dedicated to specific vehicle brands.

When doing your shopping make sure you choose the one that is compatible with your vehicle.

What if you choose one that doesn’t cover a vehicle you want to scan? Don’t worry, you can expand the coverage of an NT520 up to 5 different car brands.

NT510: there is no universal Foxwell NT510 scanner, only brand-specific ones.

When you order the scanner it will come loaded with software for a particular vehicle. The good news is that you can expand its coverage almost limitlessly by downloading diagnostic software from Foxwell’s website.

Whether your NT510 will cover both OBD1 and OBD2 vehicles depends on the original brand of vehicles it supports.

foxwell-nt510-bmw-2

  • For example, the NT510 designed for BMW, Rolls Royce and Mini is compatible with OBD1 as well as OBD2 vehicles.

So is the NT510 made for Benzes. On the other hand the one made for GM cars only covers vehicles made from 1996 to 2016.

So it’s very important that you specify the vehicle you want your Foxwell NT510 to cover. And know that you can expand the coverage by adding more vehicle brands.

The Verdict: the NT520 has better coverage than the NT510.

Why? Simple, the latter is more limited than the former. For instance, if you buy the GM version you can only use it on 1996 to 2016 vehicles. It won’t work on OBD1 as well as 2017 and newer vehicles.

Perhaps the only downside of the NT520 is that it can only support a maximum of 5 vehicle brands. That calls for more care when selecting the vehicles you need to be covered.

Functionality: FOXWELL NT510 VS NT520

This is what matters most. The functionality of a scanner determines all the tasks you can perform. It basically dictates what you can and can’t do with the device.

If you pick one with limited functions it will obviously fall short at one point. Your ideal scan tool should offer all the basic functions you need. That way you will only visit the shop for advanced and complex diagnostics.

Before we get back to the Foxwell NT520 vs Foxwell NT510 comparison please note that Foxwell scanners usually require a software upgrade before use.

Otherwise they may not perform certain diagnostic functions or fail to connect with a vehicle’s computers completely. So, how does the NT520 compare to the NT510 in terms of functionality?

 

NT520: it’s an all-system scanner. With this, you will be able to access all available electronic systems and protocols. They include the body system, chassis and powertrain.

As far as basic diagnostics, the scanner reads and clears trouble codes and resets MIL or the Check Engine Light. Codes come with their definitions to help you understand exactly what is faulty in your vehicle.

foxwell-nt520-data-stream

The NT520 provides a ton of handful data. For starters it can retrieve the ECU information of a vehicle.
Additionally, it can display and record/save live sensor data as well as freeze frame data. In addition to text, you can view graphical data and merge or compare up to two graphs at a go.

When it comes to advanced diagnostics this scanner works just as impressively. You can use it for virtually any system, including the engine, SRS, ABS, transmission, EPB, TPMS, battery registration, oil service and DPF regeneration.

It supports resets, adaptations and coding of control modules. If you are a professional or DIY enthusiast you will love that it can perform key coding for all the common brands of vehicles.

And it also performs bi-directional tests. Those are functions that are usually found in high-end professional diagnostic tools.

NT510: the Foxwell NT510 offers practically the same functions as the NT520. Whether its basic diagnostics, advanced diagnostics or service functions, you will get virtually the same functionality.

So why choose the NT520 when the NT510 does all the same things but with a lower price tag? It boils down to compatibility.

With the NT520, simply adding the software of a vehicle brand unlocks all the advanced and service functions.

On the contrary, you can add the software of a vehicle to the NT510 and it may fail to perform some advanced and service functions on that vehicle.

  • For example, if you buy an NT510 made for BMWs, adding the GM software doesn’t necessarily mean that you will be able to perform bi-directional tests on GM vehicles. Sure, the software will be there but it will have limited functionality.

foxwell-nt520-update

The Verdict: both scanners offer the same functionality. The difference comes down to compatibility. While the NT520 offers all those functions for any vehicle brand whose software you have added, the NT510 might not do the same.

To be on the safe side, only buy an NT510 scanner that is made for your particular vehicle. Don’t buy one for other vehicle brands and rely on adding software to support your vehicle. It might not support all advanced and service functions.

Pros: FOXWELL NT520 Pro VS NT510

Foxwell NT520 Pro Foxwell NT510
More expensive Adaptations and coding only work on some vehicle
Support a maximum of 5 vehicle brands only Not compatible with Mac Systems
Could use a better user manual

RECOMMENDATION

While both are solid and reliable scanners, the Foxwell NT520 just has the edge over the NT510. Once you download a vehicle’s software you’re almost guaranteed it will work on that vehicle.

The same cannot be said about the NT510. To ensure that the latter is fully compatible you have to purchase a brand-specific version. Otherwise, there’s no guarantee that it will perform advanced functions.

In terms of functionality, there’s no difference between these two OBD scanners. You can do virtually the same things with each of them.
