Where To Buy Good Quality K+DCAN Cable?

Tips here are aimed to help buy high quality K+DCAN usb cables for bmw diagnostics or coding through INPA software

The only reason why the obdii diagnostic cables are made in China is because 90% of the materials (micro-controllers and ICs) come from there.That is, it’s mainly about cost, most people would not be ready to pay 3-4 times the price just for the device being made in Europe or the US.

(IC’s are mostly imported here, and often more expensive than outside of China, except you buy some 2nd hand stuff that got de-soldered and refurbished from old trashed equipment… But yes, all the stuff around, such as cables, connectors, casings, PCBs, labor costs are way lower than in Europe or the US, and there is a good infrastructure available here serving also small time manufacturing companies)

Quality of a product depends on the Material you purchase (You can’t simply make gold out of wood), OBDexpress.co.uk provides labor such as assembling, the mechanical as well as the electronic design and of course on a good QC.

Most electronic items that are available nowadays are made in china, all the apple products, 99,9% of the laptop, notebooks and netbooks available, TV’s, DVD players. Those items are produced in high quantity and cost saving is also a big issue here, because the consumer is NOT willing to pay a high price for an item like this (take the dvd players for example.. PC motherboards, graphiccards…) Since those kind of items are produced in quantity for export and you purchase them locally – at the shop down your road.. you won’t hear many complains about them.. most of those items are just fine. For niche business such as those cables – new, small companies see the demand and simply join by doing and selling such kind of equipment and they will do it “the cheapest route” because they don’t actually know what they are selling and they actually don’t care, they just try to keep the cost at a minimum to maximize their profits…

If you take the cheapest route in China, non electronically tested PCB’s from a 2nd or 3rd grade factory, 2nd hand components (AKA refurbs), bad mechanical design and a non effective or non existent QC – and this is what many of those companies do (to save cost and maximize profits) of course the results are bad, and I am sure everyone here have seen at least one product like that, some a few more. China doesn’t have the best name in those terms, and yes a lot of things like this are happening here,but they also happen with a reason, people expect to get everything for free, and even if a product is sold at a reasonable price there is competition going on and one company will look for ways and means to offer a cheaper price to the wholesalers and consumers. (this trend that is going on like forever already is mainly caused by consumers, because they want more and more for paying less, and companies have no choice but to follow this kind of trend because otherwise they aren’t competitive)

A good friend of mine told me a long time ago, in china you can get anything – at/for any price, problem is that you will have to accept the quality. “You get what you pay for” – And this is more or less true, there will be always someone somewhere “trying to” do it for less, but there are thresholds and once you step under them, you will have to suffer from the results. There is a lot of demand for all kind of material and components in mainland china, and it really depends on in which kind of equipment they will be used, for certain things where there is a lot of competition going on you can expect the cheapest stuff, those are mainly high quantity junk products, such as ELM327 scanners, auto diagnostic tools or cables, ecu programmers so on.

Anyway, enough about the “backgrounds” and back to what we sell:

– Items at wobd2.com only use new components, but NOT second hand stuff

– All the hardware design is done by professional technicians, and they spend lots of time on hardware to achieve a mechanical stability where others only uses wires and glue.

– Technicians know how items work and can make a proper QC (there is a special canbridge built for the DCAN to check if the can part works fine, means data gets send an received over the can interfacing from and to the PC)

– Technicians work for wobd2 also do a optical inspection as well as a “power consumption” test on it to check for any irregularities.

– The K+DCAN USB cables do have tons of BMW ECU’s and access to certain cars here.

The new K+DCAN bmwis rolled out in 2016, differs from the olf k-dcan cable.

2016 NEW K+Dcan cable                  vs. OLD Dcan interface

old-new-k+dcan-inpa-cable-switch

Both BMW INPA K+CAN cables can:

1. Read and delete errors

2. Adaptations

3. Driver programming

4. Applu coding

new K+DCAN cable(US$117.99):

1- new switch

k+dcan-inpa-cable-switch

the switch on this cable to LEFT is for 7 pin, to RIGHT for 8 pin

8 pin for K-LINE communication (old DCAN cables cannot do it) for BMW from 1998 to 2008

So, it hasdual K-Line (PIN7 and 8 joined; it was fine to do that, since DCAN equipped cars did not use pin8 at all, and for many older Kline cars it was a must be to cover pin8 as well to be fully backward compatible, it turned out that BMW now “re-used” that pin8 for the latest cars that got ethernet available on the OBD2 connector, and pin8 is doing the activation for that ethernet interface.. since pin8 was covered by us with it’s original use as a 2nd Kline there will be connection problems on those new cars. But the solution is simple, all users have to do is disconnect pin8 from the interface to work on those cars. Many of the other interfaces never had this “issue” because they never covered the 2nd kline (pin8).

2- new PCB

Kess V2 5.017 Ktag 7.020 Review with PCB Rework

Here is the Kess V2 5.017 Ktag 7.020 reviews

I reworked kess and seem to work, sw open and show protocol active but I haven’t tried on a car.

Rework of ktag ok, seem to work.

I haven’t tried on real car or ecu for now, but seem to work.when I tried on ecu I post result.

Ktag 7.020 rework:

ktag-7.020-test ktag-7.020-reworked ktag-7.020-rework ktag-7.020-before-rework

Ktag work very well!

I tested with a lot of edc17 in these day and read and write without problem.

Tested with a edc17c50 bmw 120d f21 with gpt, read and write ok.

I have a fiat edc17c69 virgin (without software inside), this I can’t read.

In these day I must read a Toyota with nec, when I read post results.

Ktag haven’t token, I read more than 30 ecu and work the same.

why you should buy a Mercedes diagnostic tool

Here list reasons why you should buy a Mercedes diagnostic tool with a laptop together:SD connect C5

—With the Dell D630’s dedicated serial port, there was no issue for me…. it was plug and play… I just loaded the HDD from the Seller into my Dell and all I needed to do was activate WIS/EPC and XENTRY/DAS with “activation keys”… I only use the Dell for mb star sd c4 purposes…

—Bought an older Dell D630 laptop with a serial port and plan on buying MB SD Star C4 directly installed in a Dell D630 hard drive. No Virtual Machine issues.

—Mercedes Benz Star diagnosis C3 / C4 actually specifies the computer or tablet used in the SDS environment… The T30 is rather slow but will get the job done.

—If your ever in the market for a faster SDS laptop, the Dell 630 with at least 2Ghz and the speed improvement especially when using Xentry is like night and day.

—the HDD that is pre-loaded with the software for SDConnect 4 by the Seller, is inserted into the DELL D630… The DELL D630 is the fastest laptop with the RS232 feature.

—Need to connect directly into a RS232 port without using an interface – this is why I went for the complete system with laptop.

—The software Xentry/ DAS is a bit slow on an old IBM so that it is worth paying a bit extra and getting a Dell D630.

—There is a very specific set of COM ports you must use for it to work. For example you need DAS to be looking at COMx within the VM session, then VMware needs to redirect that to COMx which is a ‘physical’ serial port on your machine.

—It’s probably because it has a real com port. Most laptops these days have just a USB port and things don’t always work right if you’re using a USB to RS-232 converter. You wouldn’t want to brick a component during an update if you’re using USB. The other option would be to get a C4 system, but then they cost more. I think there are a couple other systems out there like IBM that also have real com ports.

—The PART D mux(C3) is a serial ported mux—that’s the reason for the Dell and IBM older laptops.

—The PART W mux(SD connect C4) is and Ethernet/wifi connected system and that is the reason for use on other laptops—the issue is the operating system currently DAS Xentry only runs on XP.

—Plug and play!! It is more convenient for users because the software for C3/SD C4 diagnostic tool will be pre-installed before delivery.

—its technology and quality is developed after lots of experiments and improvement. The new version MB Star C4 need time to perfect its reliability and operation.

MB Star C4 Advantages:

The great performance of MB Star C3 is accepted by the market, while MB Star Compact-4, as a new-born and updated tool of C3, it also own its comparative advantages.

—is much different in the shape from Compact3;

—smaller in size, lighter in weight than Compact3;

—C4 2008 can do all the works what Compact3 does and it is the replacement of Compact3-Star.

MB SD C4 overcomes the shortage of C3, C4.

—covers a wide range of vehicles including trucks and some cars that C3 and C4 do not support;

—supports wireless diagnose;

—not only support K line diagnose and CAN BUS, but also UDS diagnose protocol. Because old MB STAR C4 main board do not have UDS chip, so old MB STAR C4 can not support it;

—now use Lan cable to connect, can fit all computers (not only IBM T30);

—adopts Military quick swap technology, and supports 10,000 times pull plug, more stable;

Cloned BENZ SD C5 Connect Advantages:

—covers all new Mercedes Benz models, Mercedes W222, W221, W212, W203, 211,W 204,W207, W212, GL166, B 246, CLS 218, SLK172 and Smart405, 451, 452, 454

—efficient diagnostic program and complete vehicle database;

—advanced upgraded VCI+ communication interface;

—support Wired/ wireless connection.

—Besides the software c3 and c4 own,it added three more software: SD Media, Xentry and Smart TAN Code.

SD Media: Video and PDF lessons;

Xentry: New software released Xentry software for diagnosing W 204,W207 and W212 which C3 and C4 does not support;

Smart TAN Code: Opened special function in DAS program with Smart cars 405/ 451/452/ 454.Besides, it also opened more special functions, such as engineer mode, remove limitations,etc, which Star C3 and Star C4 do not have.

Thanks for comments:

Read written FLESH + MPC + EEPROM fiat marely 6f3, OK through OBD.

There are few tools that read-write EEPROM marely by OBD.

OBD-flash reading 3min 20 sec., 45 sec-writing.

MPC and EEPROM read OBD-20 seconds, 20 seconds writing (multyboot OBD) .A very strong and stable tool.

its always a risk with edc17 , this ecu opens easy , boot is safer , if you trust your tool you have to make a choice

tested edc16u1 from T5 2007 1.9tdi AXB 77kw.

read write ok over obd on kline.

make sure you remove the fan plug from fan controller when writing on this cars. when flash is erased the fan will work on max speed .

Ems3132 Bootmode. Read ok. Write not ok.

It erases the flash and cannot write.

Revived by k-tag.

MPPS V18 do not have capabilities to read and write PSG16 trough K-line.

If you want to flash PSG16 In Astra G, or Zafira A with MPPS V18, you must connect to CAN lines directly.

Vectra C, Signum etc – through OBD port.

It is not so bad for a 50-60 euro tool !!!

Reading psg16 opel zafira ok, writing ok but does not start, does not edit cheksum, write original, everything ok

Used MPPS V18 to Read Flash from Vauxhall Astra 1.7 CDTI 2012 Denso ECU very quick with no issues.

And also EDC17 CP20 on Volkswagen Passat 2.0 TDI 2009 took about 3 minutes..

Suzuki SX4 DDIS 1.9L 120hp, Bosch EDC16C39 2008, can & kline, read & write by obd ok.

mpps= read= unlok file = write unlok file = not boot = kess obd2 = open file unlok = write obd2 kess= ok

opel corsa 1.3jtd MT marelli ecu 6J0 C1,read/write true obd=ok. he reads 448kb and write it,wery fast…

Magneti Marelli 6f3, Reading at the BDM works very well!
