2016 Nisaan Consult iii plus vs old Consult 3 engineers have tested the new Nissan Consult 3 iii plus supports ECU programming without extra pay for the immobiliser cards for the latest Nissan (-2016).


Nissan Consult 3                                         Consult 3 plus +


Compared to the old Consult iii, 2016 Consult iii plus highlights:

I- directly do ECU programming without extra cards for programming

II- support all Nissan and Infiniti from 1996 to 2016, while Consult iii only for cars till 2011

III- cover ALL functions of Consult ii and Consult iii:

1.Swift diagnosis and swift repairs through automated operations

The selection of CAN type as well as the identification of malfunction locations are completely automated, allowing CAN diagnosis to be done 17 times faster than previous method where the diagnostics system needed to be supplemented by the service manuals. Repairs involving reprogramming of the in-vehicle computer can be completed 1.5 to 2.5 times faster with the new system.
2.Automated Self-Diagnostics

The system is able to perform accurate diagnosis without having to rely on the diagnostic skills of technical staff at the dealership.Increased efficiency in operations based on wireless technology.
With wireless vehicle communication interface, it is possible to check the condition of the vehicle from either  inside or outside the vehicle. At dealerships in Japan, it is possible to access the Nissan network to retrieve both the maintenance technology data related to the diagnosis results and spot adequate information on service manual. The dealerships are also able to access their service database and refer to the vehicle’s maintenance history on the laptop PC.


3.Capable of handling multiple complex defects

The diagnostics tool is equipped with various functions including simultaneous self-diagnosis of an entire system, simultaneous data monitor for multiple systems, data recorder, and oscilloscope capability.


4.Enhanced data management with improved laptop PC

New features such as adoption of color-screen and large-screen monitor allow viewing of large amounts of information altogether for enhanced data management


5.Map data update function for hard-disk navigation system

Through high-speed data update system, it is possible to update map data in approximately 20 minutes with the new CARWINGS navigation system (hard-disk) equipped in the all-new Skyline and other future products.
(1) CONSULT:Computerized On-Board System Universal Tester.
CONSULT introduced in 1989, CONSULT-II introduced in 1999. CONSULT-III is 3rd generation model.
(2) Communication distance: radius of 5m approx.


In short, consult 3 plus nissan  can do:

  1. Scantool Diagnostics for all Nissan,Infiniti GTR and Renault
    2. ECU Reprogramming:for all Nissan Infiniti GTR and Renault
    3. Immobi and Smart key for all Nissan Infiniti GTR and Renault
    4. Nissan GTR for Nissan GTR Diagbostics Immobi and Reprogramming
    5. Electromobiles car for Nissan Electromobiles car Diagbostics Immobi and Reprogramming


So, You’ll be able to perform servicing, tuning and diagnostic work on the Nissan flagship model R35 GT-R.
Programming keys, ecu reprogramming and diagnostic work on all Nissan and infinity cars.
