FAQ of JLR Mangoose SDD

JLR Mangoose adapter didn’t work?

But in the evening, after I changed the setting of Land Rover Freelander 2 and linked USB again, the indicator light of adapter didn’t work. It says that SDD procedure fail to connect. Does it mean the equipment broken? By the way, my computer belongs to Windows 7 x86 system.

A2: Try to change the setting back. Have customers ever used the Windows 7 system to test car before, Windows 7 system cannot be used, better use Windows XP and disconnect the internet.

How to install BME ENET cable E-sys Software

Classé dans : car diagnostic tool — carsets @ 7 h 53 min

Here, you can free download different versions of BMW F-series characteristic coding software including E-sys v3.22.5, Esys 3.26.1, and E SYS v3.27.1.


Where to free download E-sys program?

(newest) E-sys 3.27.1!E1YzzSxQ!DRr7BE8YL7GWEX8YqBbH9g

(unknown secirity) E sys 3.26.1!Z5dgGZRC!uovkspjgtekOvk9tzrhnxUQUQ8hLIF26YDxwSo1740c

(safe) E-sys 3.22.5


Only E-SYS V3.22.5 is tested by obd365 engineers among all the E-sys versions above. Other versions are shared in the forums; just put it here for share and TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK.


Why to use E-sys v3.22.5?

It is the NEVER-EXPIRE version.

There are many free download links online, but usually, it will expire in a few days or ask you to pay for continuous use or buy tokens.


What to use ENET with E-sys v3.22.5?

DIY an ENET cable BMW with the help of the following guide- it’s easy but requires a bit technique. You can have a try and then decide to whether buy a new one if you fails to DIY.

If you wanna buy enet interface from vendors, don’t spend too much on it- that is, just buy a cheap knock-off online:

this is a reliable vendor with lots of good reputation talking about in the forums.


How to setup E-sys 3.22.5?

– In Windows system

01) Run “E-sys\E-Sys_Setup_3_22_5_b34057.exe” to install program to default location “C:\EC-Apps\ESG” (i.e. “C:\EC-Apps\ESG\E-Sys\”) 

02) During E-Sys installation, when prompted change the default Data Path from “C:\Data\” to “C:\ESysData\”. 

03) Copy “EDIABAS” folder to the root of “C:\” (i.e. “C:\EDIABAS”) 

04) Run “C:\EDIABAS\Hardware\Ediabas-Konfigurator\Ediabas-Konfigurator.exe” and make sure “Interface:” is set to “INTERFACE=ENET”. 

(It should already be set, but check anyway – if you need to change it, use the drop-down list and select “INTERFACE=ENET” and then “Andern” and then “Ende”.) 

-05) Create subfolder “E-Sys EST” under “C:\ESysData\” (i.e. “C:\ESysData\E-Sys EST”)

06) Copy EST Token File (e.g. “Code Away.EST”) to “E-Sys EST” folder (i.e. “C:\ESysData\E-Sys EST\Code Away.EST”) 



07) If existing “psdzdata” folder exists in “C:\ESysData\” (i.e. “C:\ESysData\psdzdata”) delete it.
08) Copy downloaded “psdzdata” folder to “C:\ESysData\” (i.e. “C:\ESysData\psdzdata”) 

09) Make sure that there is a “Dist” folder in each of the Chassis folders (F01/F10/F20/F25/K001/RR01) etc.(e.g. “C:\ESysData\psdzdata\mainseries\F010\F010_12_03_511\odx\dist”) 

(It should already be set, but check anyway – if not there – create empty “Dist” folders for each chassis folder) 



– In MacBook OS 10 X operating system

Successfully make BMW ENET cable E-Sys 3.22.5 run in a Virtual Windows environment running under



these instructions have been prepared from a MacBook Pro running

MacOS version 10.7.4, along with VMWare Fusion version 4.1.2 (not in bootcamp

mode), running Windows 7 (x86) SP1.

The configuration and instructions prepared for E-Sys can be followed exactly as they

have been prepared for the Windows environment here within the virtual windows as


Please configure the VMWare Network Adapter to have a bridged connection to the

OSX physical adapter, as in the following screenshot:

e-sys-runs-on-macosx (1)
at the time this screenshot was captured, the Ethernet wire was not connected to the car, hence it is shows a red circle in front of the title “Ethernet”. Once connected to the car (or any active ethernet wire), the circle will be green.

If disk space is of no concern, then the rest of the instructions below can be ignored. However, considering the size of the psdzdata folder (approximately 15 gigabytes and growing per release), and usually virtual machines do not have as much disk space available to them as the parent OS, one can store the psdzdata folder on the Mac side and allow E -Sys to see the files from within the virtual windows.

Ensure that Windows is able to see a folder on the MacOS environment as a standard shared resource. The easiest way to do this is to enable Shared Folders and Mirror the Downloads folder to be the same between the virtual Windows and MacOS:

e-sys-runs-on-macosx (2)
Now, create a folder called “BMW” or anything else that is desired on the Mac’s Downloads folder. The contents of the MacOSX downloads folder will be available in Windows via Z:\Downloads under Windows Explorer.
e-sys-runs-on-macosx (3)

In the ~/Users/username/Downloads/BMW folder, create a folder called: “ESysData”,

and copy the contents of the folder “C:\EsysData” to the “Z:\Downloads\BMW\EsysData”

folder. Now extract the entire downloaded “psdzdata” folder content in the psdzdata

folder of the MacOS environment. Lastly, copy (not move) the contents of the following


to the following folder within the EsysData folder structure created above:


Please note that the “username” that appears in the above two paths will be the MacOS

User’s username. Also, considering the fact that the Windows filesystem does not

support case-sensitivity, the folder name cases specified above do not have any

significance other than readability.

In E-Sys, from the “Options” menu select “Settings…” and then select the “Program” tab.

Ensure that the EsysData folder path is correctly specified with respect to where they

are on the MacOSX environment and the Windows shared folder path. See screenshot:

e-sys-runs-on-macosx (4)

The EST file also needs to be mapped to E-Sys, and this file can be stored on the Mac side as well. Although it does not have a significant file size, it is advantageous to have this file on the Mac side for those who use Time Capsule as a backup solution and would like these files to be backed-up. In this case, the following illustration shows where the location of the EST file can been configured:
e-sys-runs-on-macosx (5)

The rest of the instructions that have been prepared for windows need to be followed in order to alter the coding of a BMW via E-Sys running in VMWare Fusion and MacOSX.


How do people think of ENET cable?

Coding F10 sport display – Success

“As always open up Esys 3.22.5, Read FA, Read SVT and activate FA. Then read the coding data from HU_CIC or HU_NBT and the KOMBI module and edit the FDL to make the changes. I have managed to activate sport display for my F10”


DIY enet cable is easy – Success

“I myself did a ENET cable as online shops display, only using a CAT5 lan cable, a 510-560 ohm resistor and a OBD male plug, or, purchase it online. Only four wires are connected and there is no need to ground anything… anyone can try it”


coding auto start stop off notification on 2012 F30s – Success

“I changed the build date on my VO to 0712, VO coded KOMBI and it all works! When auto start stop is not running, I get a notification on my instrument cluster just like on the 2013 models!”


F30 video in motion coding – Success

“good at video in motion coding.. I used this cable to enable it for the passenger to enjoy watching a DVD that help me save a lot!”


Reactivate F30 FSC codes – Success

“it helped me reactivate FSC codes without problems used E-sys program to read all FSCs and certficates. and used Tool32 to clear the FSC store and then use E-sys to reload all FSC’s and certs and activate them.”


It can run on MacBook Pro – Suceess

“i managed to coding via E-Sys running in VMWare Fusion and MacOSX. (a MacBook Pro running MacOS version 10.7.4, along with VMWare Fusion version 4.1.2 (not in bootcamp mode), running Windows 7 (x86) SP1)”

How to run DAS Xentry on MacBook Air VMware

Classé dans : car diagnostic tool — carsets @ 4 h 00 min

Here is the DIY tutorial on set up Mercedes-Benz MB Star diagnostic DAS Xentry software on MacBook Air.



We are not responsible for the damage. Many thanks to turbo97se who provided the VMware Images.


Many of us have been struggling using trusty old HP laptop to run DAS.  It is super slow because it runs a virtual machine of MB Star SD Connect C4 diagnosis DAS Xentry… it would take 5 minutes or more just to boot the virtual machine! I have tried a couple of times to migrate to a new laptop but the newer ones don’t have serial. I have tried several USB to serial adapters but the only one that works is the FTDI. I then fought with a couple of settings to get it to work. I thought I would do some screenshots and mini-tutorial on how to make this work. I am using a Macbook Air, but some of the instructions apply to windows machines.

1. Install the FTDI driver Latest drivers here:
2. Install VMWARE – Mine was VMWARE Fusion
3. Open Virtual Machine file. I recommend copying it to your local drive if you have space. It is about 65GB.

4. Start the Virtual Machine
5. Plug in the FTDI cable and you will see the screen below:


6. Select connect to Windows. You may need to install the drivers in Windows. Mine installed automatically without installing drivers on the virtual machine.

7. In the virtual machine select control panel -> system as shown below:


8. Go to Ports (Com & LPT) and select communications ports and disable all active serial ports.

9. Select the USB com port. Go to advanced and set the port to port 2.


Special thanks to turbo97se who provided the VMware Images.

Which tool to make Peugeot Expert 2012 Key

Classé dans : car key programmer — carsets @ 5 h 00 min

I need to program a new key in Peugeot Expert Tepee 2012. I have SBB China key programmer to do this job. But i have trouble in doing this. Detail goes here:


I have searched and see somebody have successfully programmed an Expert 2010 as 207 CAN with SBB. I want to know if I can program this 2012 at the same way. In other way I have a big doubt about the transponder needed, because I only have PCF7936, and in Peugeot Transponder Catalog i found:

PEUGEOT EXPERT 2002 2006 Transponder PHILIPS Crypto2 ID46 ● JMA : TP12, TPX4 ● PCF7941 ● PCF7936
PEUGEOT EXPERT 2007 Transponder PHILIPS Crypto2 ID46 ● PCF 7961 ● JMA : TP12, TPX4 ● PCF 7941

In PCF7941 datasheet I found:
-Transponder operation like PCF7936 family
-Consequently, the device is configured for PCF7936 (HITAG2) transponder emulation and set to INIT mode, providing full support regarding the Monitor and Download Interface.

I need to know if I can program this car with SBB and with PCF7936.


Solution from professional locksmith:

We have tested this model with SBB clone key programmer but result is not okay. Finished job with MVP Pro (the key pro m8). You can also try the new OBDSTAR F108 PSA programmer which supports

PSA CAN system
Expert (VF3X)

Q: can I read hash data eis w203 2002-2004 via IR ? ( on car )

A: Same as any other tool, some it can, some it can’t.
There is no 100% solution.

As far as I know the key hashes (not including password) all tools can read that have Ir adapter and on all das3 eis. Nothing spectacular.. pass read is something else.


Q: tried to renew w210 eis i got the key password and erase password but once i click on renew eis it says failed how can i renew eis for motorola w210.



A: You can’t renew w210 eis by IR.

Please ensure your password is correct, and then try again. Some types of old K line eis cannot support renew.

How to make BMW halogen angel eyes to DRLs?

Classé dans : car diagnostic tool — carsets @ 3 h 42 min

Share are two common methods to complete Halogen to LED DRL conversion, one with NCS expert and the other by hardwire. Follow at your own risk!


Method 1 – Use NCS expert to get the halogen light angel eyes as DRL


Here, all complete with BMW ICOM A2 emulator as well as NCS expert. BMW INPA K+DCAN cable is also ok. It is a good choice for E series owners.


To disable the DRL (halogen), if you have access to a NCS setup, you just disable it. If you are in Canada or any other country where the DRL are mandatory, only NCS expert will be able to do the change, not GT1. The reason is because GT1 reads the country code when connecting, and disable options that are not allowed for those country.



To get the halogen light angel eyes as DRL (on all the time) and still working as welcome lights, the following lines need to be looked at in the NFRM.


The blue ones are the lines I had to change but I’ve copied the others just to make sure. Once this is done, just go into the OBC and enable the DRL – Voila!


Note that this is for cars with halogen LCI angel eyes, I’m not sure of the procedure for cars with Xenon lights but I believe it’s roughly similar.




Method 2 – hardwired the angel eyes as DRL

If you want to do it the hardware way, like I did, just rewire your DRL like the schematic I put below.


I already disabled the halogen DRL, and hardwired the angel eyes as DRL, but the light output is so low, I would like to have the fog as well for safety.
When there is 12v coming from the car (flashing to pass), the 12v relay kicks in and send that 12v to the halogen bulb. When running normally, there is 6v going to the relay, but it is not enough voltage to trigger the relay, so no voltage to the bulb. The 10 ohms resistor is there to put a load and avoid the burnt light indicator. You will need to install a resistor on each side L-R, but the relay circuit can be used to feed both DRL.

For the Angel Eyes, it is similar. You need to use the red-white wire in the ECU box (red wire with white stripes). You will see many wires with that color, just use the one with the biggest size. They are all ignition 12v feeding different parts of the car. Disconnect your battery before doing connections in the ECU box to be on the safe side. Without cutting the wire, just skin a portion of the insulation, and feed a new wire in the rubber grommet into the ECU box and solder it to the red-white wire and tape it.
Again the resistor circuit needs to be repeated on both sides but the relay can feed both AEs.

I did that modification on my E46 (2004-2011) and my E53 (2011-now) and it works very well.
