How to use CGDI MB Prog to 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

Different AK500 Key Programmers Comparison

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 Programmer AK500+AK500 Plus AK500 ProAK500 Pro2
Read & Write EIS Yes, no issues on HC705/HC908/HC912/9S12 Yes, no issues on HC705/HC908/HC912/9S12
MB original factory key calculator NO YES
Remove ESL/ESM/ECU Yes, it needs to remove ESL/ESM/ECU to synchronize data No need to remove ESL/ESM/ECUSupport calculating key only need EIS data
Write old model big keys No, it doesn’t support infrared write old modelbig key (Motorola CPU) Yes, it supports infrared write old model big key(Motorola CPU)
Program infrared keys Yes, it program infrared keys for Mercedes Benz from 1998 to 2005 Yes, it program infrared keys for all Mercedes from 1998 to 2011
Program W203 W211 keys NO Yes, it supports MB W203/W211 key programming withECU flash 29F400 and 29F800
Read & write “Key-less go” Key NO Yes, it supports reading and writing “Key-less go” key
Reset SBC computer Yes, but not via OBD to read and write SBC EEPROM Yes, it can read and write SBC EEPROM via OBD.
Supper EGS No, it doesn’t support EGS which is 722.9 typeof gearbox computer Yes, it supports EGS which is 722.9 type of gearbox computer
Database Yes, it needs 320G database to support ESL fast unlocks No 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.

– 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).

1 How to use Lonsdor K518ISE to program BMW FEM BDC key?

 

Three steps: read key info–>pre-process FEM/BDC system–>make a dealer key

In details…

 

Step 1: read key info

MUST read key information first

 

Step 2: pre-process FEM/BDC system

MUST DISCONNECT THE BATTERY

 

1: OBD back up original coding data:

On the car or test platform, connect to FEM/BDC system, then back up original back up coding files via OBD

2: read out EEPROM backup data & generate a service-mode EEPROM:

-> Disassemble FEM/BDC module, find out chip 95128 or 95256, read EEPROM data using a ECU programming tool: VVDI-Prog, Orange5 and the like;

-> Copy the EEPROM data into to the Lonsdor K518ISE customfile folder;

-> Run the program, read original EEPROM data and generate a service-mode EEPROM, upload data of the service-mode EEPROM, write it into chip 95128 or 95256 with help of a ECU programmer

-> Restore FEM/BDC system, supply battery to the car and connect via OBD

Lonsdor-K518ISE-program-BMW-FEM-BDC-key-1

3: programming

-> This step need to be done on the BMW FEM/BDC test platform;

-> Make sure that Step 1 & 2 is finished

-> Connect FEM/BDC system to power supply and connect to the OBD port

 

4: restore EEPROM data

-> disassemble FEM/BDC module, write original EEPROM data (Step 2) into chip 95128/95256

-> restore FEM/BDC system, connect to OBD

 

5: restore coding data

-> load the backup coding files (Step 1), restore coding information via OBD

 

6: pre-processing is complete.

 

Step 3: make a dealer key

 

1: Lonsdor K518ISE read out data, select the will-be key position

2: a “used”key to make a dealer key

All keys lost: enter 32bit ISN codes to make a dealer key

3: put the key near the car immo induction loop

Lonsdor-K518ISE-program-BMW-FEM-BDC-key-2

4: detect the original key, read out immo data

5: put a new key near the car immo induction loop

6: detect the key key, key learn (don’t move the key, keep stable)

7: key learn is complete

 

Step 4: disable the key

 

1: Lonsdor K518ISE read out data, select the key ID position to disable

2: put a “used” key near the car induction loop

3: K518ISE system tries to connect to CAS, disable the key with current ID position, disable key successfully

 

Step 5: enable the key

 

1: Lonsdor K518ISE read out data, select the key ID position to enable

2: put a “used” key near the car induction loop

3: K518ISE system tries to connect to CAS, enable the key with current ID position, enable key successfully

 

Step 6: delete the key

 

1: K518ISE read out data, select the key ID position to delete

2: read FEM/BDC key password

3: delete the key successfully; the key position is blank

 

THE MOST IMPOERTAN TIPS

1: You must read key info before everything you’ll do

2: to pre-process FEM/BDC, you should pay attention to:

– backup coding codes to continue

– disconnect to the power supply/battery, have a ECU programmer to read EEPROM data, up load data in K518 customfile folder, read new EEPROM data loaded just now, generate service-mode EEPROM data, read service-mode EEPROM data, write data into the chip, install CPU on the car

– ECU programming: need 6 min, with power supply connected

– disconnect to the power supply, disassemble CPU, write the original EEPROM data into the chip, install CPU on the car, connect to the power supply, make sure communicate is successful

– upload coding files (Step 1), restore original coding info to pre-process, then make a dealer key

3: 32bit ISN codes is required to program a new key when ALL KEYS ARE LOST

 

Job’s done with Lonsdor K518ISE!

  1. open FEM/BDC shell, find out where the 95128/95256 chip is, read EEPROM dump via BDM programmer
  2. load original EEPROM dump and save special EEPROM dump, write special EEPROM dump back to the 95128/95256 chip
  3. restore FEM/BDC shell, provide -12v and connect it via OBD

 

step 3:

  1. this operation requires connecting FEM/BDC on the bench, and make sure you finish step 1 ans step 2
  2. provide +12v to FEM.BDC and connect it via OBD

 

step 4:

  1. open FEM/BDC shell, write original EEPROM dump (read step 2) back to the 95128/95256 chip
  2. restore FEM/BDC shell and connect it via OBD

 

step 5:

loading coding file (read step 1), write to FEM/BDC via OBDII, finish FEM/BDC programming

 

 

Attention please!!!

– You can directly backup/restore coding

– You have to pre-setup the FEM/BDC module before deleting/adding keys or resetting keys

– You’ll be told other tools need to be used first to program the FEM/BDC system, then setup FEM/BDC via VVDI2. It happens when you do FEM/BDC key learning, and you don’t have a working software version

– You’d better not close the VVDI2 interface when you pre-setup FEM/BDC

– You need do with 95128(FEM) or 95256(BDC) chip when pre-setup FEM/BDC

Note: there are two 8-pin chips; do not disassemble the wrong chip; better refer to the wiring diagram

– You must restore original EEPROM data, restore coding when pre-setup FEM/BDC. If you fail to restore coding or the remote cannot start or something wrong with the window (or other failures probably) after coding restore and FEM/BDC installation, please use other tools to do re-coding FEM/BDC

– Ask tech support @obdii365 for help, if the replay sounds continuously after supplying power to the FEM/BDC. Usually, it needs programming.

Buy Original Mercedes BE key or Chinese Key?

How is different between Chinese Mercedes Chrome Keys and Original Keys?

It’s a debate also experience sharing.
1. Choose Original Keys and reasons:
1) It’s very different, use original keys when you can.
Many people are using chinese bga keys, but some are getting corrupted and stops working.
Not a bad key the chinese ones, but it is not the same as the original…..as is the case in any other remote or key, many chinese keys works, but they never long live as the originals

While, Original keys are getting expensive…and not much quantity. specially since the bga key cannot be re-used as the old chrome key.

2) Maybe the AVDI keys are of better quality than the China BE keys? But they can be used only with AVDI.
BE keys are not that bad. I still hope there will be a working solution which will stop them from selfereasing.

2. Choose Chinese BE Keys and reasons:
Got one Smart Key 3 Button 433MHZ:
http://www.obdii365.com/wholesale/benz-smart-key-3-button-433mhz-with-2-batteries.htmlBE keys
Including 2 battery inside

I program Chinese Keys on
– S-Class W220 2003 TWO KEY’S (One for me and one for my Wife)
– Vito 2007
– Sprinter 2009

All working Perfect. Its look better with new Keys.

Can be written for once. The seller remind If Benz key board is broken during key writing, you need to buy another new one NEC chip.
