Kess V2 unlocking Simos PCR 2.1 - connection, wiring, tips&guides

Possible to OBD unlock Simos PCR 2.1 with Kess V2 clone?

Look here: all information can be found here to help you unlock PCR 2.1 using Kess v2 china clone.

 

Connection:

 

ECU connection for the bootmode unlocking procedure only!

 

  1. Connect the ECU to the bootloader adapter
  2. Power up the bootloader adapter with a stabilized 12v power supply
  3. Connect the cable 14P600KT02 to the 14P600BTLR adapter
  4. Follow the instructions provided below

 

Wiring diagram:

  1. Solder a wire to the CNF1 pin
  2. Solder the 470 Ohm resistor on the two pads
  3. Solder the 1K resister on the pad

Test:

Basic info:

Tested and confirmed working by me on 4 ecus /cars

only on Chinese clone not reworked unit: ktag 6.070kess v2 v4.036, ksuite up to 2.15

Tips and guides of tools for use:

pcr 2.1 need to be as you know unlocked before writing .

On this ecu pcr 2.1, ksuite (kess v2 or ktag) seem to be more stable than fgtech on pcr but work too sometimes: i get error with fgtech on one pcr2.1 but no problem with ksuite . 

 

So if you have both tools , prefer ksuite seem to be more stable & flawlessly and car run ok .

After you get you ecu unlocked in boot mode , with fgtech just remove boot and left pin connection , and read or write on bench .

On ksuite tools , you can’t read or write with ktag , only unlock . (alientech need to work on it…)
with kess it’s ok , BUT , you can’t use the tricore module !

The problem is that the harness is plugged in the tricore module . so you have to build your own bench cable : just get a obd female plug on a scrapyard , and wire +12 gnd and can h/l (kline is not used but you can wire it it will make a universal bench cable) .

The trick to get communication error free on both fgtech and kess cable is to use a strong external psu .

when the tool id or read or write the ecu , the ecu will perform a kind of reset , and the big cap inside the ecu will go charging , causing a drop in voltage if your psu isn’t strong enough to handle it . THAT WILL CAUSE THE COMM ERROR . That’s the only thing you have to take care . 

when i made test with many little psu (like one you get with your tools) i have seen 7 volts drop some time , so the ecu is shutting down and no comm . 

you can use computer atx psu modded to work on bench (green wire plugged on ground to power on ) i think anything that can provide +12v 2A will be ok . i didn’t need more than 12v just a stable 12V . 14v unstable will not be ok 

that’s why on the car you have no problem , car battery can handle the cap charging current .

There is no immo caused comm error on this ecu , psu is the problem !!

So in conclusion : good psu and obd home made bench cable , remove tricore module on kess = 100% tested bench flashing solution for pcr2.1 .

For copy ID 48,Handy baby and VVDI keytool - Which better?

Question:For read & write on ID 48,Which tool is better,VVDI  key tool or red handi CN900 mini?

 

Answer From obdexpress.co.uk

 

Both tools are OK with copy with 48 chip,the functions are kind of different

 

Handy baby car key copy: read chips & test frequency, small and portable

 

Xhorse VVDI key tool: multi-function incl. Edit transponder, clone transponder, test frequency, clone Remote, generate remote, generate garage door remote controller, unlock smart card etc. (good at TP chip generation)

Handy-baby: English/Chinese/Spanish/Russian/Portuguese/Turkish

Vvdi keytool: English, French, Spanish, Turkish, Chinese, etc.

(languages depend on which version you have. Vvdi key tool has US//EUME versions)

 

Functions &Chips:

Handy baby: read chips & test frequency, small and portable

VVDI key tool: multi-function incl. Edit transponder, clone transponder, test frequency, clone Remote, generate remote, generate garage door remote controller, unlock smart card etc. (good at TP chip generation)
