China vs. EU made Kess V2 Tricore Cable Pinout

How to rework Kess V2 master ecu tuning kit Tricore adapter cable to work as a real EU Made cable? Here are Kess V2 Tricore cable pinout china vs. eu made.

 

Kess Tricore cable china clone

Kess Tricore cable EU made

Kess-v2-Tricore-cable-eu-made

Chinese Kess V2 tricore cable pinouts:

This is correct wiring for tricore adapter cable

pin 1 = brown
pin 2 = purple
pin 3 = not connected
pin 4 = blue
pin 5 = 2x red
pin 6 = not connected
pin 7 = white
pin 8 = not connected
pin 9 = orange
pin 10 = gray
pin 11 = 2x black
pin 12 = not connected
pin 13 = not connected
pin 14 = yellow
pin 15 = green

on some chinese clone cables. pin 1, pin 2, pin 14 and pin 15 to be wrong  and this seems to be the case with a lot of them after researching.

The Colours above are correct for the Tricore adapter to work.

 

EU kess v2 Tricore cable pin out:

PIN 1 = brown –> reset (output)

PIN 2 = purple –> VPP switched voltage

PIN 3 = not connected

PIN 4 = blue –>CNF1 (multifunction boot support)

PIN 5 = red –> +12V supply

PIN 6 = not connected

PIN 7 = white –> CAN-High

PIN 8 = not connected

PIN 9 = orange –> +12V switched voltage

PIN 10 = grey –> Boot (low switched)

PIN 11 = black –> GND

PIN 12 = not connected

PIN 13 = not connected

PIN 14 = yellow –> K-Line

PIN 15 = green –> CAN-Low

 

Kess V2 Tricore cable China vs. EU made

Kess-v2-Tricore-cable-china-vs-eu-clone

Check the differences and wire up to EU pinout:

PIN 1 = green

PIN 2 = yellow

PIN 14 = purple

PIN 15 = brown

Change differences and now it works

 

To avoid issues, quality guaranteed cables should be a good choice.

But obdii365.com engineer have checked and confirmed that his version kess v2 is exactly the same as China version. He bought the unit and re-build his own in order to sale at a higher price.
