What is Best for Mercedes FBS4/BGA/NEC/Moto Key Programming?

What is the best FBS4, BGA, NEC, Moto Key Programming Tool? CGDI-MB or  VVDI MB TOOL or Diagspeed or AK500 or NEC PRO57?

Look here! This is for people who are looking for one good key tool to program all new and old keys to Mercedes-Benz.

Mercedes key programmers comparison: CGDI MB vs VVDI MB vs Diagspeed vs AK500 vs NEC PRO57

Moto - Key  - Programming  - 1 Moto - Key  - Programming  - 2 Moto - Key  - Programming  - 3 Moto - Key  - Programming  - 4 Moto - Key  - Programming  - 5

It’s easy to find that,

you’d better to have more than one key tool for Mercedes key programming.

IMPORTANT: CGDI-MB is the only FBS4 key programming tool!

Moto - Key  - Programming  - 6 Moto - Key  - Programming  - 7

So, you have to use a CGDI MB esp. for FBS4 key (confirmed to read and write FBS4 keys to W205, W218,W166… without any issue) and get another auto key programmer (such as VVDI-MB TOOL and the like)  for BGA keys and the other.

Note that with Xhorse VVDI MB, you should buy VVDI PROG too, because the are some eis and ecu’s that you cant do with MB Tool independently. For example some w210 eis or Sprinter 906. You should have both, VVDI MB Tool and VVDI prog. Or, if you have to buy some tool again, Simon Touch is the best, but its more expensive.

But if you have a CGDI MB, you have a chance to program a new key through OBD. All done with a tool. That’s the reason why people look for it.

YOU HAVE TO KNOW: What is the difference between FBS3 and FBS4:

Late 2015 is FBS4, Early production 2015 is still FBS3.

Not on the outer shell.. maybe the numbers under the battery cover will tell you..

You can also tell by the kind of car…

For sure FBS4… 222, 231, 205, 117, 2012 model year and up 212 and 218, 166 and 190

Note that FBS4 was added to 212 207 etc at mid 2013 (804) not in MY 2012

FBS4 can use blank keys to program to the car with Xentry and an authorized online account.. Not all online accounts have access to program keys..

Honda DPF forced regeneration: Which tool? How to do?

Look here: Honda DPF forced regeneration tips and guides

What is DPF forced regeneration:

A forced regen occurs when soot builds up inside the diesel particulate filter (DPF) to the point that the vehicle is no longer operable. When this happens, a driver has to pull over and initiate a self-cleaning process that can take up to 40 minutes — valuable time that could have been spent on the road.

What is necessary for Honda DPF forced regeneration:

A decent Honda HIM diagnostic interface and a functional laptop running on Windows 7

HQ Honda HIM look:

When should you do DPF forced regeneration on Honda:

When you are in degraded mode or with the message “Check system”, or if like me, you regenerations too close and you want to limit the damage before it is too late.

Small extra info before starting:

– Make sure you have a PC laptop preferably holding the charge for use 1H or desktop PC on UPS to avoid power cut during the operation.

– The operation takes about 30min. So either you stay in the car while time is still on or off with the PC: not to go back in the car during the regeneration, avoids interactions with it to avoid problems.

– If you use an adapter Com (232) -> USB, verify that the com port is set to COM1. The interface does not work on another COM port!

– Check the oil level before and after regen. If after regen, the oil level is too high or if it stinks diesel will require draining.

– Disable the energy saving usb, antivirus, internet and all that can use PC resources.

How to use Honda HIM for DPF forced regeneration:

On this, I appeal to my memory, because I was a bit stressed during the manip and I also fear that my PC crashes battery.

Let’s go:

1) Make a nice little tricks with the car to make the 76 ° or at least not too far

2) Put themselves in a place where noise motors can interfere people and nothing can come under the car. (The DPF rises above 600 ° C)

3) Open the hood

4) Disable all that pump energy (ceiling, etc …) and especially not fun to reactivate during operation.

5) Connect the HIM to the car and the computer.

6) Start the HDS

7) Turn the ignition on II

8) In Honda HDS, press the “Select a new vehicle” and enter the mileage.

HONDA-HIM-diagnostic-tool-pcb-21

9) Select “System”

10) Select “Diesel”

HONDA-HIM-diagnostic-tool-pcb-22

11) Check and delete the DTC menu “DTC – given frozen”. The HDS warn you it is absolutely necessary to remove them before operation and also check the various sensors of the DPF, so if you have a problem with sensors, do not bother going any further.

12) and go back to “Settings”

HONDA-HIM-diagnostic-tool-pcb-23

13) Select “DPF Regeneration”
HONDA-HIM-diagnostic-tool-pcb-24

14) Put the engine running, turn on the lights and put on the air conditioner ON

15) If the engine is not the right temp, the HDS asked to accelerate between 1600 and 2400trs/min

16) When the temp is reached, the HDS takes over, release the accelerator.

17) Allow the Honda HDS to regeneration. The engine mounts alone at 3000trs/min during regeneration, it is stagnant at 1500 trs/min. At the end of the regeneration scheme dates back to 3000 trs/min to cool the exhaust line (weird, but it is like here)

HONDA-HIM-diagnostic-tool-pcb-25

19) When the regeneration is complete, leave the HDS, turn off the engine, remove the cables from HIM and go for a ride to make sure the cooling line.

That’s all. regeneration is done!

My working experience about Autel MaxiSys Pro MS908P

I am using Autel Maxisys Pro MS908P more than half year, it can do what I paid, it works fine in my workshop. Comes with everything in the packing list, use it for scanning of ABS , Air bag , engine , and everything the car can communication with, all the good working.

10-1

AUTEL MAXISYS Pro itself has already supported ECU programming function for BENZ and BMW cars, if you need to get support for more car models, you must use J2534 device along with OEM software to implement this function. J2534 DEVICE can not only use with AUTEL MAXISYS Pro , but also can work on other OEM software.

10-2

Using additional OEM software, the MaxiFlash Pro can be used as a Pass-Thru diagnostics tool as well, which allows users to read and clear Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) and data log PIDS, collect sensor data and log generic OBDII data etc.

10-3

2 years ago, Autel MaxiSys Pro MS908P is about 3200USD. but now its price drop less than 2200USD supplied by Autel Authorized dealer in China. www.cnautotool.com offer you ms908p with 2 year online update service. It is worth to buy from this website.

Here is some customer Reviews for Autel MaxiSys Pro M908P :
By Dave.J on May 20.2017
Let me just say I had no problem registering this online at Autel and I took serial number and password right from the machines screen as they show online. After I registered I also installed the CD that was supplied I did that no issues. Then I bought a 32GB sd card (Ultra) not that it matters but that’s the max, I clicked install all updates on the card and boom all went on. Then I took the card out of the machine the 8GB supplied and updated that as a back up. I’m also gonna order one more 32GB to keep in the safe. No issues at all my serial number had a Q in it which is the USA one. My wifi works good as well.

By Juan H on October 21.2016
I owe many scanner , The Autel MS908P has give me the capabliety to scan more vehicles , look at more features. I very happy with the pruchase. I would recommend this scanner to anyone, affordable.has done wonder for my shop.

By Pen Ne on June 17.2016
Best bang for your buck hands down, I’m a master technician with ten years experience as a professional tech. For the money this scanner does more than any of its competitors for a fraction of the price. It puts my snap on scanner to shame! Does almost every make and model I program keys with it, reset adaption and service lights, look at live data , run tests, etc can’t go wrong

By ARamada on February 10.2016
We have a small used car dealership and Autel MaxiSys Pro has been more than sufficient, pulling codes from different modules, the live data and the ability to communicate with nearly any make/model. If there is one complaint, it’s that it doesn’t have an internal battery so it always has to be plugged in, can’t walk around with it with it on. The updates are constantly coming in which is another plus. It could use a little tuning, some words are misspelled but otherwise its been working fine.

By Texas cowboy on July 2015
I am still learning all the ins and outs of this piece of equipment, but I couldn’t do my job without it. It is awesome! I concur with the warnings of others – be sure you order one that is not from China so that you can receive updates.
