Which tool to read VAG BOSCH EDC15P+ ECU on bench

Question before entering:
I have some trouble with my spare EDC15P+ ECUs.  I have now invested in a MPPS V21 because of its booting capabilities!  But No matter what i do, MPPS keeps saying “Booting of ECU failed” or it freezes during connection establishment. I have tried this om 3 different ECU’s with bad flash and 2 PC’s.
The procedure i use:
Generic -> Micro Boot -> EDC15P -> Pin 24 to ground and Power On -> Remove ground from Pin 24 -> Select ECU ID
Happens every time and it’s driving me nuts. I have bought MPPS for the sole purpose of recovering bad ECU’s, so i really hope that some of you maybe can help me with this.
Expert solutions:

Solution 1: with MPPS

With MPPS V21, you need luck. V21 maybe too new to this ecu.
Check with multimeter pin140 to pin44 and pin104 to pin24.
I bought MPPS HW12 china clone, software v16 for hardware 12. For a long time ago I had a similar problem with VW Sharan , I do not remember exactly how I was reinstall the firmware on it.  But finally it works. Here are some pictures:

Solution 2:

MPPS V13 no problem on this ecu
I try read with kess v2 and mpps v21 edc15p+ and I get error, but with mpps v13 no problem to reading this ecu on table.
So i finally got my spare ECU’s working again. I ordered a MPPS v13 ecu flasher, and that one was able to bootflash all the ECU’s.

Solution 3:

Kess v2 master read EDC15P+ on bench on issues
Testing edc15p+ of a Seat Ibiza

Solution 4: 

Fgtech Galletto V54 on bench Writing vw EDC 15 P+ no problem
VW pasat 1.9 PD writing edc 15p+ 115 mph up to 130mph and egr off.

What tool to read Renault Laguna 2 1.9dci ecu

I just got an MPPS V16 ECU tuning interface and installed it on my Win7 laptop.

I connected to my Renault Laguna 2 1.9dci. Ignition on, I can get an ECU ID successfully but when I hit ‘read’ it gives a error and tells me to check the log files (which seem to be in Chinese).

Any help with this one? I’ve read some VWs for example need to have a fuse pulled. Some suggested me doing that by MPPS would lose injectors codes.Better do that with BDM.

I don’t think injector codes are used on my car, I have a ‘sonde Renault CAN Clip’ device and injector codes are set to off if I remember rightly.

Also a quick Google suggests BDM needs the ECU open on a work-bench but I’m not doing that. I just want to remap for a bit more power I’m no expert so will pay someone to do the adjustments. What’s the best cheapo tool to read my map and then get someone to adjust it and write again?

Another suggestion was Fgtech galletto v54 or reworked Kess v2. Fgtech helped done it many times.  Somebody has done it many times. But i do not want to spend budget because I do have other cars to tune.

In the end I tried an MPPS V16, KWP 2000+ and and MPPS V13. I had success only with the MPPS V13 – the cheap one that comes built into the OBD plug. Map looks good and safe, stage 1 map

mpps 13.2 run good on laguna 1.9 DCI 100 protocole is wrong ( EDC15C2 ) for edc15C3 but read and write it’s ok. tested good.

I extracted my original map and then sent it to someone to have it adjusted for more power. I know those remappers are frowned upon but this guy was based in the UK and seemed trustworthy.

Actually his first remap didn’t work and he did it again in another software which did work. He said “WinOLS on this occasion being through is a bad thing….Ecm / swiftec rules” Whatever that means!

I’d be very happy if someone would take a look at the original and new map and tell me exactly what was done and if it seems like a good map? Anything that could potentially be improved further?


Personally it feels like there is a bit more power in the turbo boost range but could still gain more in the low rev range below 1800RPM. No smoke there even foot to the floor.
