How to set up Mb SD C4 Wireless on a Dell XPS15 9550 laptop WIN10 and run Mercedes Xentry 09.2019 software?

MB-SD-Connect-C4-WIFI-set-on-WIN10-laptop-1

I’m running Win10 on a Dell XPS15 9550 laptop with Intel AC 8260 internal wireless card installed.

After days of investigation and testing, the most important thing is that: The drivers for your wireless card MUST support AdHoc functionality.

This can be verified at the DOS command prompt. The command is: Netsh wlan show drivers
This command will show “Yes” or “No” on the line for “Hosted Network Support”.
If this line says “No”, AdHoc will not work properly.
Although I’m running Win10, Intel has drivers for the 8260 wireless card for Win8 which will enable proper AdHoc functionally.

The trick is to download the driver first, prior to removing your existing wireless driver. Download the driver ONLY, not any driver file with additional driver management apps included in the downloaded file.

Now you can go into Device Manager and remove your existing wireless card AND check the box that removes all software associated with it. My Win8 driver download file was a .exe file. I double clicked on it and the Win8 driver for my Intel 8260 card was installed. Went to Device Manager, right clicked on my 8260 wireless card and selected Properties. Clicked on Advanced and was able to see several AdHoc related entries. These AdHoc entries were not visible using the Win10 drivers.

AdHoc can now be verified at the DOS command prompt. The command is:
Netsh Wlan show drivers.
This command will show “Yes” on the line for “Hosted Network Support”.
If this line says “No”, AdHoc will not work properly

With AdHoc functionality confirmed, additional DOS commands can now be used to enable Road24h wireless connectivity.
This is what worked for me. Depending on your computer skills, your results may vary.

P.S. Recommend to get  MB DAS Xentry HDD 09.2019 for WIN7 or WIN10, WIFI set on WIN10 100% OK!

MB SD C4 Tourismo bus communication error (fixed)

I bought the MB SD C4+Dell D630 Laptop pre-installed bundle, when I test it have the problem SD Connect C4 cannot power on when connected with  Tourismo bus, I contacted there customer service at obdii365.com, and here is the solution provided by their engineer.

I will explain my problem in detail:

” I have tried 2 different mb sd connect c4 on Tourismo buses and sd connect does not power on.In the meantime those MB SD Connect C4 works normally to any other MB Truck and car.also on Tourismo have check MB Star C3 and works normally.”

You should check:
bus with OBD
pin 4 + 5
both must be connected and ground

In SDConnect “-” is 5 pin only. There is 4 contact not used in 16pin OBD connector.

“i’m getting an communication error when connecting xentry to a tourismo.”

Tourismo-bus-communication-error-1

A Communication error has occurred when access FPS system

Tourismo-bus-communication-error-2

Solution:

– turn OFF/ON BUS ground switch (our remove battery – cable). FPS1 wake up and MB Star diagnostic recognized FPS1/VIN code.

or
– enter the DAS ATEGO truck come and place manually and then it will work perfect

” Another problem is : “Currently the speed limit is set to 100 km/h. I’m trying to set it to higher value (with MB SD C4 DAS using modified EOL files). On the menu it tells me that I can, because there are higher values (105 km/h. 112 km/h, etc). But when I try to set the speed limit to higher than 100 km/h it doesn’t allow me to do it (can’t save the changes). When I try to set it below 100 km/h everything goes fine.”

I done the Access special settings , and it working perfect now!

How to do if Mercedes w176 not start & no fault codes in SD Connect C4

Issues :

There have customer who have Mercedes w176 (a gasoline with 270 engine year 2013) and it is a pain in the ass. The car came with a platform because it would not start. He run a quick test using the SD connect C4 mux and all control units were clear. He tried to start the car but the engine would half turn and stop. Something was cutting it off electrically.

Furthermore, without any obvious reason, the engine fan started working and the communication with the engine was lost. He have discovered that the the engine control was loosing a ground point. that is why the engine fan started. He have put an outside earth and the car came back in engine turning and cutting out electrically. He tried everything.

checked all fuses and relays (including the mini relays)

replaced terminal 30g relay

replaced exhaust camshaft sensor

checked crank sensor with oscilloscope and looks ok

tried second key

guided test for drive authorization (all ok)

and many many more

But still no fault codes.

 

So how to do next ? Suggestion from the experienced :

The problem with most technically inclined individuals trying to fix a dead engine is that we tend to quickly forget THE BASICSingredients for combustion to take place just so the engine may run!

1. Check for spark, is it there throughout or intermittently or not there at all,

-Famous L5, ECU, DI coils, e.t.c

2. Check for fuel rail pressure ( challenging on any A-class but doable if u want it to start and run),

furthermore M270 has piezo direct injection. so u have to find a way to confirm that fuel is delivered (repair fuel system accordingly)

3. Check for compression and make reference to specific values in WIS.

 

Notice : this is a discussion in the MH community; just post it here for sharing info only !)

If still have any more issues , welcome to contact our sales ( sale@cnautotool.com )

Thank you

hazard due to electrostatic discharge

Safety instructions/precautions

– to avoid damage to control units, antennas, sensors etc. due to electrostatic discharge (ESD), the technician must comply with the appropriate safety precautions before replacing electronic components

– proper static discharge can be guaranteed very effectively by means of a grounding strap for the wrist connected ground

– alternatively, static electricity can be discharged by deliberately touching

– repair or cleaning work on electronic components may only be performed on an ESD worksurface using a grounding strap for the wrist to ground the body

Why will you choose Xentry connect C5
23-1-1-1-1
Original Plan 1:1 Copy Mercedes Wifi Xentry Connect C5 multiplexer For Mercedes Car And Trucks.
After 2015, all Star Diagnosis equipment is no longer supported. First of all, this means that there is no update of the diagnostic data for the newest cars and their systems, as well as the lack of the possibility of coding and programming of electronic units due to the backlog of the software data level in the device, from data in the electronic control units of the car.
Already at the end of 2014, at most dealerships, almost all of the previously used Star Diagnosis Compact4 with SDConnect DoIP multiplexers were almost completely removed. Instead, dealers received Xentry Kit kits, which include the latest Xentry Connect multiplexers and Xentry Tab tablets from Panasonic. Tablets are custom-made, although they also have a “civilian” version – the Panasonic Toughbook CF-D1, somewhat inferior in terms of battery life to the original Xentry Tab, but it has a much more powerful configuration.
Honestly, the need to use the Xentry Tab on non-dealer services seems somewhat exaggerated to me. With dealers everything is clear – they were forced to use this equipment.
And what about workshop service? Undoubtedly, the tablet from Panasonic is not very bad … But … Its price is disheartening. The cost of the Japanese tablet is realistic to buy pieces of eight new laptops or tablets from other manufacturers.
So , we suggest you buy Mercedes Benz DoIP Xentry Connect C5 MB Star C5 Plus Panasonic CF52 Laptop from OBD2TOOL , We will install and activate for you ready to use. What’s more, this package offer saves you money than buying them alone.
After all, there are many reasons to choose Xentry C5 Connect. The main thing is one: since 2015, the diagnostic multiplexer Xentry Connect C5 becomes the only one used at dealerships.
Thus, by purchasing this equipment, you will not lag behind the progress. Each client of of yours, seeing with his own eyes ,that you are in your work using the same device that he saw at the dealer’s service station, will understand that he made the right decision entrusting his car to your specialists

MB Star diagnosis C3 and MB SD C4

The difference between MB Star diagnosis C3 and MB SD C4 is vey complicated, so i collected some data about them to let you know. Here we take one of my customers’ case as an example to share with you about how to find a right way to deal with MB STAR diagnostic system.

MB - Star - diagnosis - C3 - and - MB - SD - C4-1

Hello, I am new to STAR diagnosis field. I have been considering all of these questions:

1. All MB STAR system are look similar (Super MB STAR C3, MB STAR C3, SD Connect C4), are they all different?

2. Is the MB STAR diagnostic tool can operate on a Virtual machine? The shops sell Star tools with T30 and Dell 630 are running on Virtual Machine?

3. Can we order a MB STAR (C3 or SD C4) multiplexer + cables and install DAS/XENTRY alone (ie not buy everything HDD)?

4. What is the difference between Mercedes Benz Diagnostic Tool DAS and Xentry software?

That’s a lot of questions, but it is difficult to find clear and precise answers. So I leave it to you! I’m interested in explanations, information, links etc, in French or English, Thanks!!
And following are the vipprogrammer.com customer’s clear & precise answers:
MB - Star - diagnosis - C3 - and - MB - SD - C4-2

First.
a. All STAR system shares the basic diagnostic software, like DAS, XENTRY, WIS, ST Finder etc. Super has much more software than other star diagnostic systems. Super MB SATR C3 has Develop Mode, Smart TAN code etc software etc that other Star tools does not have.

b. Super MB STAR C3 multiplexer can be updated online. MB SD C4 and MB STAR C3 do not support update.

c. MB SD Connect 4 is the newer and most respected Star tool for Mercedes models.

d. Best price MB SATR C3 version cannot support Benz trucks. Other Star multiplexers work both cars& trucks.

Second. Yes, MB STAR external software HDD can be loaded on Virtual Machine. If you get T30 or Dell D630 format HDD, you can only loaded it on T30 or Dell D630 laptop. If you buy external HDD, you can install it on Virtual Machine. But internal HDD runs faster than external HDD.

Third. If you need to buy Star Multiplexer without HDD, then go for this: Best quality MB STAR C3 without software HDD. The better suggestion is that you get the MB SD Connectand Dell D630 laptop which software in pre-installed, you did not need to install software by yourself.

Forth. MB STAR DAS: the automatically Diagnosis Assistance System
Xentry: New software released by Benz Company to diagnose new cars.

DAS in old software

XENTRY is newer software
The Star diagnostic tool it self determines which software you are going to use. That means STAR diagnosis will read your vehicle and enter into Xentry first, if your vehicle has to be done via DAS, it will go into DAS, otherwise it will stay in XENTRY)

Multiplexer STAR Compact 3 (Auto-Link Blue STAR) realizes all the functions of official factory BENZ Star2000: reading out and erasing trouble code; reading the real-time data of sensor and actuator; coding and programming. It applies the latest high-tech central gateway system of car model 221/211 and 203 with software version updated to October of 2006, can enter all the Benz cars, such as autobus truck, saloon car, sports car, smart car and so on.
