  1. Thanks
    Keyhole - Eugene got a reaction from Singh in 2007 Audi A4 Cluster Swap ?   
    Have not had to - but I believe that is an RB8 cluster on that year. I think the VVDI2 is capable of reading the data and writing to used - assuming the old one is intact enough to do so.
     
    Why are they replacing it? If it says DEF on the screen, I have had the vvdi2 resurrect several thru OBD in ~ 30 seconds.

    I will update, I have flashed 3 GM ecu's since this ; my stuff was setup properly it was just a car issue.
     
    So if anyone needs help with the current version of TIS2WEB let me know and I can likely help.

    Customer ordered a re manufactured dash from Local ford dealer.
    Dash shows up, they install will not start. Blinking theft light. Mileage, VIN etc are all already set and on a sticker on the side of the refurb clusters
     
    What does NOT work to get these running
    Programmable module installation - Copies data from old to new (I think?) acts exactly the same
    Parameter reset - nope
    Attempting to program transponder keys and just making it a transp car - nope
     
    What does work -
    Take out the APP, mileage adjustment, and just set the mileage right back to what it already had. Fired right up with the non transponder keys.
     
    Not sure if the parameter reset was required or not - did them anyways prior on the second one.
     
     
    Hopefully that saves someone some time.... the dash's ford is sending must all have the PATS enabled and for what ever reason setting the mileage while plugged into the vehicle seems to be turning it off.

    As far as the VVDI2, You will need to know which dash and EEPROM it has to read the data.
    If you have the cluster, you can just look at the thing typically there is a sticker. It is prolly one of the NEC selections.
    If not, go to key learn, let it auto detect. It will tell you what type it is 90% of the time.
     
    Next go up to the Immo drop menu - VW - Type 4 - select the appropriate cluster.
     
    From that screen you should be able to read/write the EEPROM, Flash and IMMO info from the cluster with a working key.
     
     
    As far as coding the ABS - I have not had to do one that new with it but I did an 08 Audi ABS module 100% with my autel MS908p. When you go to the appropriate screen for coding it literally walks you through it. You just have to know the options for the vehicle - most are not that hard to figure out IE AWD vs RWD, etc. No idea if it will do it to one this new.

    Keyhole - Eugene reacted to hangtime in 2005 Chrysler Town and Country   
    I'd venture a guess that most any 2005 Caravan still on the road is a failed wheel bearing or missed oil change away from being junkyard fodder. 
    I understand wanting to defend the moral high ground but it's ok to be realistic. Write down the pin you choose on the vehicle in a conspicuous place (door jamb by the data plate is my fave because it's where I normally look to get the vin back in the days I could just call in a PIN). Notify the customer and explain the potential issues. Do the thing, get the money, get on with your day. 
    All of us keyboard badasses on here would do the job better, faster, and charge more. I myself have raised the issue and challenged the status quo when the ability to change the PIN first arrived in our collective toolbox and a few people had the audacity to mention they'd set some PIN's to 0000 because eff the customer, they're always gonna have to use a locksmith now!
    I'm older and less interested in causing a ruckus over the way other people choose to fix things. I still replace stripped screws when I find them and pick up trash off the sidewalk (provided there's a receptacle to drop it into), but I'm not above farting in an elevator either. On a moral alignment chart, I'm probably somewhere between chaotic good and chaotic neutral.

    Well you do you, but I feel that is giving the customer a disservice. Next time they go to a dealer, or have a locksmith that cannot EEPROM and need a key you're essentially screwing them.
     
    I put things back to OEM spec, unless there something 100% preventing it from happening.

    If you copy the flash + EEPROM it should just start if I am not mistaken. Have not done one of these exactly as a replacement, but I see no reason it would be any different than any other mercedes Ignition.
     
    Also.... Don't take half the dash board apart as everyone else shows. 
    Remove the lower heater vent at the kick panel, unscrew the EIS and pull it out. It is 1 screw vs many.

    Specifically we have an Autel MS908. Any of their modern tools with a pass thru should be the same.
     
    Under programming - programmable module installation. Start with the original module in - assuming its not 100% toast. In this trucks case, his RPM gauge was dead.
     
    Autel reads all the coding off the original. Tells you to swap. Hit okay and its done in 5 seconds.
     
    In the case of this truck the Immob was in the instrument cluster. Had to program the keys in at this point, and a parameter reset. Which is identical to every other ford on the market.

    Update:
    The person this vehicle is for actually worked as a mercedes dealer tech for 10ish years so he has been a help. He just does not have the account to order TRP, or subscriptions/tools at this point.
     
    Issue: the Maxysis connects, and the VIN etc of the new ordered module matches already and can test function/read key fine.
    To program the keys it puts out a random number , a key ID, SKIM (for remote i think) etc. You have to convert this # to a 16 digit number to program (X1 or X2 function according to mercedes).
    The NASTF site you would think does this with a sub. The site has a link to VEDOC which is where the conversion software is. However the login I was provided does not work to log into this portion of their site - it works on literally every other aspect of the mercedes sites.
    As they are east coast and closed, I am going to call their support line tomorrow and see whats up. Hopefully its a straight forward issue, as the help documents make it look very easy to get this number - assuming I can get a log in.
     
     
    Also he has a factory scan tool (expired subscription) and it is nearly identical menus, and numbers/wording as Maxysis. The software appears to be a near clone as the factory tool as far as programming the keys go.

    Will do a parameter reset (NOT a vin flash) of new ford PCM's
    It will do some VW dash clusters but not all

    Pretty much what David said.  Everybody has their own acronym including vehicle manufactures and scan tool manufactures. I generally use ECM to refer the computer that controls the engine functions which is what was replaced in his case. On this vehicle PCM would be an incorrect usage of that abbreviation because it has a separate transmission control module. 
    For the most part if someone uses ECM, ECU or PCM they are referring to the same thing- the computer/module that controls the engine functions.  
    As David said on vehicles where the engine computer and transmission computer are integrated into one unit, PCM would be the correct usage of that acronym and using TCM would be incorrect. But potato potaato. 
    Obviously no one explain this to Autel when they were writing the softewate.

    So was the ECM or the PCM replaced?
    ECM = Engine Control Module, PCM = Power Control module yes?
     
    Or does it matter? The screens just say PCM so I'm curious for future reference, as we just bought one of these tools for this exact purpose.

    This is a tutorial on syncing a used ECM to a Chrysler Town and Country using Autel Maxisys. This vehicle is a 2005 but the process is the same for pretty much any Chrysler. The newest I've done with the Maxisys is a 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan and the process was identical. 

    Select Diagnostics

    Then Chrysler

    Next Automatic Selection

    Make sure to manually enter the VIN and do not use the Read function. If you use the read function it will read the incorrect VIN out of the recently installed used ECM. After you enter the VIN click OK. 

    Although not necessary, it's always a good idea to check and clear all fault codes so select Diagnosis. 

    And then Auto Scan. 

    If you want, after reading the fault codes, you can go into each module and review them or just use the Quick Erase function to clear them. 

    Scroll down to Skim/Skreem and double click the line or single click the arrow.

    Select Special Functions

    Then PCM Replaced

    Click OK

    Enter the PIN and then click OK

    If the PIN was entered correctly click OK

    Click OK

    Make sure the VIN is correct and click Yes

    Click OK

    Click OK
    You're done, that's all there is to it.
