China Clone Kess V2 5.017 Red PCB Rework

Bought a Kess V2 5.017 china clone, but no luck.

I can try to read but writing is sometimes danger.

power supply for akku. When I write flash, the ecu need a lot of power.

Searched a lot… thought i should rework the inner board.

Then i did something…

Transistors:

BCR112

MMUN2113

BC817

Murata filters:

NFE61PT472C1H9L (connect ground for all of them)

Capacitors:

1uF – 35V

220uF – 10V

10uF – 16V tantalum

Here is good quality pic from ori pcb

kess-5.017-pcb-rework

Finally. It works like a charm.

My advice is: DON’T BUY KESS 5.027 RED PCB FROM OBD2TOOL.COM – FAKE 5.017. My friend bought 10 units from obdexpress.co.uk – all work good, read/write no issues. This is the site he is using: http://www.obdexpress.co.uk/wholesale/kess-v5.017-ecu-online-version.html

Update: my friend did some Kess 5.017 tests:

Berlingo 9HX: only read ID from engineand works ok

PSA Bosch EDC 16: read ok

Skoda Octavia 1.9 AXR EDC15: read ok

BMW EDC17CP02: OBD write ok

BMW EDC15: OBD read/write ok

Ford Mondeo SID206: read/write ok

K-line and CAN both OK

VW EDC17CP14: read/writewith tricore module

2008 Sprinters with Edc16: no issues

Hope this helps.

2018 Kess V2 5.017 vs 2017 Kess V2 5.017

2018-kess-v2-5,017

A lot of improvement on PCB components, compared to Kess made in 2017:

1.the left upper corner and the lower right corner notch size is not the same

2.More thanbuzzer

3.WFs = Infineon, BCR112 NPN Digital Transistor

4.27E = ON Semiconductor NUP2105LT1G

5.6DW = NXP BC817,215 NPN Bipolar Transistor

6.A6c =MMUN2113LT1G / MMUN2113LT3G

7.K5B = BC807-25-7-F PNP Bipolar Transistor

8.Using imported Japanese Murata filter NFE61PT472C1H9L

KESS V2 5.017 Red PCBIntroduction

Red KESS 5.017 is the newest introducted OBDII ECU Programmer for Multi Vehicles. As the new generation KESS V2 Master Kit,the New KESS V5.017 with a newer fashionable look and used the Best PCB Board(Red EU Version) as well as LPC2478 NXP Chip + Newer sd card + 3D Sticker to provide a stable ECU Programming. 2018 Newest Red PCB KESS V5.017 supports online 140+ protocols without tokens limited and provides better quality and performance at decent price and will one of the must have ECU Flasher Tool For ECU tuners.

KESS V2 5.017 With Red PCB Highlight

1.The Best PCB Board(Red EU Version), LPC2478 NXP Chip + Newer sd card + 3D Sticker.

2.Using imported Japanese Murata filter NFE61PT472C1H9L

3. Better performance,function as well as online 140+protocols supported.

4. Online Operation Supported,No tokens limited.

5. Perfect for OBD use,Read and write ECU via OBD2 port directly, no need disassemble ECU from the car, easy to use .

6. No reset button,no USB dongle,no tokens limited and has tested by many users as well as our technology department, 100% workable.

7.Multi-Languages supported.

What’s different between KESS 5.017 Green PCB and Red PCB?

1 Red PCB has better quality,and same outside box as original.

2 Both KESS 5.017 are same software,stable for use.If you want original looks,you can choose red pcb version.

3.Red KESS V5.017 with LPC2478 NXP + Newer SD Card

What is the different between Red KESS V2 5.017 EU and KTAG 7.020?

1.Red KESS FW5.017 is perfect for OBDII using. For Most Vehicles, KESS V5.017 Red PCB can read and write ECU via OBD2 Cable Directly.While KTAG FW7.020 can read and write ECU via TRICORE or BDM Or Other Mode with special cable,KTAG V7.020 is for all the ECU that need to be programmed with Jtag, BDM and Boot protocols

2.Red KESS 5.017 Ksuite 2.23 EU is for mainly for home cars,trucks,while the K-TAG 7.020 Master is for truck/tractor/Heavy Duty/Boat and so on.

3.KESS FW5.017 With Red PCB Europe Version can work For Most for Toyota Denso ECU Protocol,but just K-TAG 7.020 with GPT Cable can work For Toyota Hilux kun26 very well !

4.KTAG V7.020 can support much more Cars/truck/tractor/motorcycle than KESS V5.017 Red !

Now, most tuners tend to buy Red KESS V2 5.017 + K-TAG KTAG 7.020 together to make more online protocols can be programmed or flashed.

2017 Kess V2 5.017 No Wake Up Error

Usually, you have Wake Up Error with old Kess V2, esp. Kess firmware 3.099. But now, new kess v2 programmers hardly ever pop up “Wake Up Error” when reading kess software number.

Kess v2 without Wake Up Error:

Kess v2 5.017 (so far, no)

Kess with Wake Up Error:

Kess v2 4.036 (sometimes)

Kess with Wake Up Error:

Here is an awesome write-up of “Wake Up Error” solutions:

– Here are the files for Kess SD or TF card. Just reformat your card and copy the files onto it.

– Sometimes wake up error doesn’t mean your tool has problem, i use Kess original. when the ECU was tuned and locked. it will show wake up error too …

Please be specific what car, ECU you working with. its difficult to tell whats wrong here …

– Maybe conflict in drivers if you have other tools on your pc, try to remove other drivers,and reinstall only kess drivers, have work for me one time

– Firstly try installing genuine software 2.20 will be fine, once installed then un-install it! Use your software (no point going past 2.08/2.11) if it still gives wake error try removing battery in vehicle for 30 mins and try again, or in ‘tools’ slow the read speed down to minimum! if still no joy just take it out and do it on the bench!

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.

Kess v2 5.017 rework:

kess-5.017-ksuite-v2.22 kess-v2-5.017-before-rework kess-v2-5.017-rework kess-v2-5.017-reworked

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.
