Can AK90 Key Programmer read BMW E9x Key mileage?

Question before entering:

I’m  looking for a tool to read mileage from BMW KEY from BMW E91 year 2007. I want only read it not change it.
Someone knows which tool i can do that? I heard that Tango will do, but i am not willing to spend that money if only need to read it. AK90 key programmer possible?


BMW expert solution:

AK90+ will identify keys for all EWS and CAS , showing VIN , key No. and mileage from 1995-2009.

BMW AK90 key programmer can read km from key.  I read some for E46 2005 before. I test E91 2007 today. It reads no problem.



But if you need to change/correct mileage on E9x, you can go for Tango key programmer or  Digimaster 3 odometer correction master.

Customer question:
I haven’t done any VAG group programming in my career mainly because we don’t have this cars in my market. However I got customer who has Passat 2009 and needs to program a key in. I have the mechanical key already.

I would appreciate if anyone can give pointers on where to start with. I have heard its precoding and about 7th byte etc, but i don’t the exact steps

Can anyone guide me through? I think i have all the equipment necessary for the job for ex; tango, tagkey tool. Thanks.


Solution 1:

Remove comfort access and program key with Tango. In tango maker help, they show you how to differentiate ID48 and 46.

Modulo comfort, eeprom it, and dump the tango key programmer records. TagKey also writes.

Solution 2:

Remove comfort it s being glovebox
Read 95320 u then put dump here and someone give you all 7 bits
Make dealer key ID48 can for vw and put with vcds
Or write your transponder in dump ready to start Tango or TM100 create image.


Program Benz ML350 05 remote with D3 and TM100

Here is the instruction on Mercedes Benz ML350 2005 year remote key programming. Though the car is old, still some asked how to program the remote.


Old Mercedes ML350 immobilizer system= Key +AAM/EAM+ DEM



  1. Dissemble AAM computer which located under the left side of the dashboard. The ML350 AAM contains two computer board, one bigger size and another small size. Each board contains MC68HC705X32 Motorola ECU with 0G47V.


  1. Read CPU data

We only need to read the 0G47V data on the small AAM CPU board. Do not need to read data from bigger AAM board. This is very important.



Which ECU programmer is better to read MC68HC705X32(0G47V)chip data. We recommend Digimaster III(D3) or Xprog M, it is up to you, but it must be stable. For example, if you use Digimaster 3, solder the cpu to D3 adapter.


  1. Read and write key

You can use Tango,TM100, VVDI MB BGA Tool to write key, i.e in TM100,we select Generate Key->Mercedes Benz->ML->AAM(7935)


Update load data just read by Digimaster3. Select proper key position and insert brand new 7935 chip into TM100 key programmer’s adapter. Follow system prompts to generate ignition key, do not need to re-write key data to 0G47V.  It is difficult to add remote key for old Mercedes. You can buy folding flip Remote Key Shell Case for Benz like picture below.


Insert the adapter to one end of the original ML350 AAM computer and plug the another end  into the key shell case adapter. The two folding remote key can be used to replace original remote control function.

Then we insert the 7935 chip generated above to folding remote key, a new remote key has been generated.
