Fgtech Galletto read BMW M3 Siemens MSS54 via BDM

Here is the instruction to read this ECU from BMW M3 Siemens MSS54 with FgTech Galletto V54 ECU Programmer by BDM. 


I need to read BMW M3 Siemens MSS54. I did not see in FgTech Galletto BDM support that ecu MSS54! There is only MS45. But I have checked the BDM MC32xxx pdf Page 13 for BMW MSS52, not say MSS54 but hardware appear to be the same. I loaded the pdf attachment below. 


I had problem to identify pin number 1 on left/right flash. Thus I made some research and worked it out.


This is the pinout to read the ECU given by a Galletto expert.


The procedure to identify the pin 1#:


As promised, BDM 32xxx pdf can download free here:



Page 13 shows how to place the Siemens/Marelli BDM head on MSS52.

Page 12 shows how to place the very same Siemens/Marelli BDM head on a Trionic 8 + BDM pad 1 indication.

Page 7 shows how to find pin1


So I finally identify pin number 1 and successfully flashed BMW M3 with FGtech by BDM.

KESS V2 firmware 3.099 clone with Truck activation

Questions before entering:

1. KESS V2 clone is activated with the only protocol for cars and motorcycles?

2. So with Kess V2 4.036 how do you activate trucks? Is it a firmware update on the NXP? 

3. How can I get the kess firmware 3.099?


Find answers to those questions


There are several KESS V2 clone ECU tuning kit master version with different software and firmware available in the aftermarket. 


The only KESS clone with truck authorization/activation is: 


KESS V2 Ksuite V1.89 + Firmware V3.099


No higher Ksuite.

No higher firmware version. 


If you use higher version Ksuite or higher version firmware, KESS V2 TRUCK china clone will display invalid protocol file. 



Ksuite V2.10/2.13/2.15 + Firmware V3.099, DON’T WORK

Ksuite V1.89 + Firmware V4.036, DON’T WORK

Ksuite V2.10/2.13/2.15 + Firmware V4.036, DON’T WORK


If you use KESS 4.036 China clone, all truck options are in gray, KESS 4.036 firmware can not stand 24V. 


Some KESS V2 users will get the firmware v3.099 by replacing the new NXP LPC2478 fix chip on CPU or with J-Link. Disassemble the main unit, then find the biggest chip in the main board. Change this biggest chip.



But it requires good soldering skills. We DO NOT recommend to get v3.099 kess firmware by replacing the CPU NXP fix chip because it will break the device easily. The best way is to get a brand new KESS V2 3.099 ECU programmer hardware. 



Only a small part of truck can be found in Ksuite V1.89 (with fw 3.099) list. KESS V2 EU clone or original is better. 


You can purchase KESS V2 V3.099 firmware (Item No: SE87-E) in and download free K-suite V1.89 software here:

(Fixed) 2001 Mercedes W220 S500 dash, where is the eeprom


After replacing the EIS on this 2001 Mercedes W220 S500 the mileage now reads ----- on the dash. I’m guessing it’s because the das and EIS have different mileage values, ok that’s fine but where is the eeprom located in this dash?


There is no ESL on W220, so I did not code in the new EIS. I virginised ECU and adapted used EIS. i dont see eeprom on other side either. 


i know how to read the EIS




heres the dash 24c04 eeprom.!1Ioi3DJD 


And here one experience locksmith have change my dump to 0 and my original mileage was 125024!lVB2WRYY


Given Suggestion as follows:

"You don't have mileage in this eis. May be the VIN of the car is in there, then you must try to 0 the dash, adapt with Star Diagnosis and after that change the mileage with STAR to what you need. When you zero the dash, the star will think that your dash is new and let you adapt with the car"


Finally, solved with Star Diagnosis!!

You need to change the coding in the cluster. change modification year, and also code presafe to not present, just use Star Diagnosis through OBD will work ok, go to icm,control unit adaptation,all codes then do coding. pay particular attention to modification year and also set presafe to not present. 


Finally, worked like a charm, problem gone. FYI the modification year was not important, just set the PRE-SAFE to not present and it was all done
