VVDI2 vs ZED-FULL key programmer which is better for VAG and BMW?
1:I have Zed-Full and to be honest it's a bit of a disappointment. Slow bringing out anything new on the VAG front. Older A3's and TT's never seems to be able to read the pin when other tools do fine. Not great on newer Marelli dash especially doesn't like the one in the VW UP. Never manages to read any CAS modules by OBD (used to ok but hasn't successfully read a single one for months) on top of that it's expensive to run.I'm about to order VVDI2 .
All these orignial tools are a pain sometimes, I have zed full for a few weeks can't say I'm impressed so far, So no joy on BMW CAS3+...
3:I have both, vvdi by far when it comes to VAG.
4:i have vvdi2 and autohex2 ,for the best is vvdi2 key programmer. Works perfect.
I have vvdi2 and zed full for vag and bmw vvdi2 is best for me.zed full is good too for other makes.continue reading
I've seen an issue pop-up a few times for those of with aftermarket wheels and aftermarket TPMS sensors.
"I bought the right TPMS sensors and they don't work!"
And the problem turns out to be an incorrect frequency due to Jaguar changing frequencies mid-production.
My 2016 F-Type S manual, built early, has 433mHz. But many have 315mHz.I didn't want to find out the hard way that I bought an incorrect sensor!
I bought an Autel MaxiTPMS TS401 TPMS scan tool on obdii365.com. That will let you scan sensors to check the frequency.Within five minutes of receiving it, I was able to verify that my car had 433mHz sensors (which I then purchased on TireRack.)I'm sure a friendly tire shop may do this for you as well.
Hope that helps ease your TPMS anxiety!
Yesterday try to replaced EIS in W212 with other used one by using
Mercedes VVDI MB BGA Tool key programmer, not exactly the same part number, but with help of EPC was replaceable.
Original EIS + 1 key functional (original EIS have some malfuctionals, sometime ok, sometime not, but all keys data readable yet)
calculation key password online, get erase password success - all data saved
other used one EIS from scrapyard, no any keys, then through step: W212 all key lost to get key password, get erase password - all success
then renew this EIS with all valid passwords - success
read all EIS data from orig part and as first write VIN, then write all key data ( the process is almost the same as when teaching ELV or Emulator unit to W204)use orig key and NEW EIS is success activated
all work with both EIS are on the table, without car !!!put new(used) EIS back to the car and need little time wait for key recalculating to car, then turn to first ignition position and again wait forcontinue reading
What OBD tool are you using to read pin on vauxall and opel 2000 to 2015? I know if the customer has car pass makes life easier providing nothing has been changed on car any other obd tools does anybody know if fvdi is safe to use in?
these cars for pin reading i have opcom and is okay for some to pull pin but for 2005 up no good i only want a obd tool no eeprom jobs.
1.fvdi Opel supposed to work but i couldn't get that to work on 2 insignia's 2010 and 2011 years
nothing beats avdi for pin codes on opel , the next best in my opinion used to be cryptoworks , zedfull is good too , mvp pro and ad100 pro on models after 2005 is also good , but i've not seen anything as good as avdi on these.
Smok xcan can read PIN by OBD for Opel.with Smok you can read PIN change km, VIN, reset ecu but no key programming. Pecky's vauxhall decoder is very good but only from dump.
Chepeast solution i think is to buy Carprog reworked.
