micropod 2 ebay?
Ebay should be a good place to buy items. But for professional vehicle diagnostic tools, a site with experienced experts and technical support teams like
witech micropod 2 price:
Original micropod 2: $4599 around
Clone micropod 2: $179 – $525, depends on quality
Note: MicroPod 2 (Item. No SP271-B) is the best quality one among china clones, same as the original.
witech micropod II HQ Clone Customer Review:Just ordered a chinese clone MicroPod II and it has been working exactly like an OEM unit. No errors so far and tested functions on 3 different vehicles. It has been confirmed working with unmodified software wiTECH v17.03.10 (downloaded directly from Chrysler). For now it works fine.
I have tested Dodge also. I just used it on a 2014 dodge avenger just fine. I am able to flash a module update and program a new key with the unit.
I don’t have experience with Windows XP. This version of Witech works fine on Windows 7 and Windows 10.
I have also uploaded pictures of the internals for those who are curious.

ODIS 4.0.0 reviews from vas5054a users:

– for me i got it working vw and audi ,just used 2 difrent pc’s but i got it working by running launcher in xp service pack3 compatibilty mode and as administrator this is on my Win7 64bit.
did not test it yet but audi and vw is running will see later if it actualy works but so far so good


– I can make online programming


– All online functions​ needs a valid subscription


– Do not use the idiotic Windows 8 or 10 and install under Windows 7 64bit 


– Running on win7 as admin.


Win 7 need to use.


– I have ODIS-S 4.0.0 and ODIS-E 6.7.5 all marks in one license



Vas 5054a odis 4.0.0 FAQ:

Here are frequently asked and questions of odis 4.0.0.

Anyone knows if the post setup are different for USA and euro market ?

– The PS is different for Eu vs. Usa since Odis v3.x.x


I tried several times to include multiple brands. It looks as licensing is the problem and post-setup update is not picking up brands other than the one that is licensed. 

– To fix the license issue you need to go into the installation directory and open license location with notepad++ and make the change like you did to the installation directory for e.g. (…… AU or ……. VW)

or just use X-COPY and make a single starter file with choices. all rights reserved, original post How to Install VAS 5054A ODIS 4.0.0 on Win 10 Win 8 Win 7 Win XP

How to enable Cruise Control in BMW F45 F46 F48

Once you have your BMW Cruise Control switch physically installed, you will need to enable your Cruise Control feature in your car through “VO coding”.


Note that the procedure is also applicable to enable “Enhanced Bluetooth” feature or other VO code procedure. The modules that are required to be coded will be different though. For example, “Enhanced Bluetooth” will require HU_ENTRYNAV module only.

1) Start your BMW ENET cable E-Sys coding software for F-series, Click “Read” button and then “Active FA”:
VO Code 1

2)  Go to “SALAPA-Element” and right click and select “Edit”:
VO Code 2
3) Add the value “544,” into the SALAPA-Element and click the save button on the right as highlighted.
VO Code 3
4)  Click the “save” button to save the file into a XML file with your desired file name.
VO Code 4
5) Go to “VCM” section and load the same XML file that you had saved.
VO Code 5
6) Right click “calculate FP” and you will see the E-sys software Vehicle Profile generated.
VO Code 5VO Code 6

7) Click the “Write FA FP” button once you are satisfied with your settings which will writes into your ECU memory.

VO Code 7

8) To enable Cruise Control for F45/F46/F48, you will need to VO code these 4 modules for F45/F46/ F48:




4) DSC2

9) Go to “Coding” section, click “Read ECU” button on the right and then right click on the above-mentioned modules and select “Code”. This will enable the settings required for your Cruise Control. Note that the engine need not be switched off for this operation to work successfully.

10) Test your Cruise Control switch to ensure that it has been enabled successfully.

Launch X431 V 8″ troubleshoot Skoda Rapid 2016

This morning, i have received the 2017 version of Launch X431 V 8 inch tablet, for my repair work in the garage.
Each item was packed well in a box, incl the  X-431 V 8inch tablet and all full cables (OBDI and OBDII), a password envelope, a scanner protection sleeve, a x431 v user manual, some connectors, looks good.
In the afternoon, i tested on the first car; it’s Skoda Rapid the 2016 year.
For the first time to use it, i went to Launch x431 v 8″ tablet application via the tablet and registered it first, with the user name and pass
Then downloaded VW software to test Rapid 2016
Went to European, then VW
This Launch x431 V scanner supports VW full system, incl. Power, chassis, body, info, seat & door, A/C,etc.
Next, plug the connector to the DLC socket on the car
Ps. The connection diagram from the manual
Then had a quick test for the car
Test result: all ok.
Also, i tried the special function… did a steering angle learning
steps as the tablet displays:
1 start the vehicle
2 drive in a short distance straight line on a level surface at a speed not higher than 20km/h
3 while driving turn the steering wheel one turn to the right and one turn to the left
4 when having the steering wheel straight again stop the vehicle with the wheel’s pointed straight
5 ensure that the steering wheel is not moved again
6 keep the engine running and do not switch off the ignition
7 system voltage at least 12.0v
My thoughts:
If i rate my old Autel DS708 7/10, then the new version of 8-inch x431 v scan tool can be scored 9/10. The language and vehicle coverage is what i wanna share with all. x431 v has 23 languages available (it’s said to add more) and it’s very easy to change the setup language by users (no need any help from the factory; ds708 needs that). And the new Launch x431 v covers almost full European and USA cars. Of course, no problem with Asian cars. And works good Brazilian, Indian, Malaysian cars also.

JLR SDD V141 Review on 2004 Jaguar S-Type & Vanden Plas

It’s my personal experience of JLR SDD V130 (now v141) running on Windows 7 system on SDD.
For the time being I have given up on SDD DVD 139 V7 because my big laptop needs sorting out.
I have now set up SDD DVD130 V7, which I acquired from, on my Acer Netbook, with a 1.6 Mhz processor,1 Gb RAM and a 255 GB HDD.
(ps: Do not use JLR Mangoose cable, it is not able to transfer IDS from SDD)
It runs Windows 7 Starter(32 bit version), with Internet Explorer 8,Adobe Reader 10,and Java 1.6.26 and Mongoose Driver from China(I could not find my copy of the original Drew Tech driver). I reset the computer date to September, 2012.
It loaded in about 5hrs and works perfectly on my 04 S-Type in IDS mode and my 04 Vanden Plas in SDD mode.
Here, I have attached some screens from my Windows 7 SDD install with my 2004 S-Type and 2004 Vanden Plas.
