VXDIAG VCX NANO GM + TIS2000: It works

This is my experience of how to use VXDIAG VCX NANO GM with TIS2000

nano-works-with-tis2000

 

ok for anyone trying to use the VXDIAG GM nano with SPS this is what you need to do (order is important):

*** please note you cannot use the VM that the VXDIAG package comes with (GDS2 VM). It’s configured in such a way it won’t work with the dongle crack and caused me a lot of head scratching to find this out.

1. Create a windows XP 32bit VM using VMWare Player
2. Make sure you add an LPT port (set to auto, not connected on startup). It doesn’t matter if your actual PC has an LPT port or not this is needed for the dongle crack later.
3. Install VMWare tools for your VM

  1. After you have the windows VM up and running install the BOSH MDI drivers here:

http://www.boschdiagnostics.com/pro/soft%C2%85-and-mdi-2

(the MDI drivers on the driver disk and vxmanager installer wouldn’t install on my xp 32bit VM but the one from bosh does)

 

5.From the driver disk or from allscanner.com install the VXDIAG MDI package with pass thru driver (VXDIAG MDI manager or VXDIAG Manager)

 

Download tis_data_1.iso, tis_data_2.iso, GM-NAO-TIS200-3_2008.iso, TIS2000DongleCrack.rar from this: http://auto-professionals.co/?dl=5847273d53a0b0635724a7b3...  (password: mhhauto) or you can purchase one TIS2000 crack

  1. (files / instructions in the updated.txt you may need to click the link more than once if you get an error when downloading)
    7. Mount the tis_data_1.iso in your VM (use the virtual cdrom in vmware player and attach to iso file) this will start the auto install of the TIS2000 2007.3 software)
    8. All options can be installed using the default selections however make sure you check the install checkbox above the parallel security device on the one screen.
    9. After installation is complete you can extract the TIS2000DongleCrack.rar and copy the folder to the desktop of your VM
    10. Go into the TIS2000DongleCrack folder locate the drivers folder and open it, run the DDINST32.EXE (if you get a registry error you didn’t install an LPT port in your VM), select Express and it should install the files then click ok / Exit to close.
    11. Go back to the main TIS2000DongleCrack folder and copy SCAControlUI.exe and Id.dll to c:Program Filescosidsbin (it will prompt to replace id.dll select yes).
    12. Go back to the main TIS2000DongleCrack folder into the Dongle folder and copy the 2 files in there to c:windowssystem32 (the dongle crack is now installed)
    13. Now mount the tis_data_2.iso in your VM (use the virtual cdrom in vmware player and attach to iso file) and open TIS2000 (double click the icon on your desktop) when TIS opens it will ask you if you want to upgrade click yes.
    14. After the upgrade completes mount the GM-NAO-TIS200-3_2008.iso in your VM (use the virtual cdrom in vmware player and attach to iso file) and open TIS2000 (double click the icon on your desktop) when TIS opens it will ask you if you want to upgrade click yes.
    15. After the upgrade completes you have successfully installed TIS2000 2008.3 and the Dongle crack, now we need to configure TIS to use the VXDIAG GM nano
    16. Open TIS2000 from the icon on your desktop, select Configuration menu from the top and select IO Management.
    17. Click the Driver button, click the Browse button, locate the j2534.dll file in the window and click open (installs the J2534 Pass Thru Driver)
    18. Now click the Add button (in IO management) enter exacly “Generic Pass Thru” in Logical Name and select “J2534 Pass Thru Driver” in the Driver drop down, click OK.
    19. Select Generic Pass Thru in the list and click Properties, in the Device Name drop down select VXDIAG, (ALLScanner) and click ok then click close to close IO Management.Now TIS2000 software is installed and configured all you have to do is connect your VXDIAG device to the PC / VM. To do this first use a usb and connect it to the PC then in the VMWare player menu go in removable devices and connect the Future Devices USB to serial converter. At this step my windows install didn’t have the basic usb to serial drivers so I connected the VM to the network (if not connected use the VMWare player menu to connect the network) and windows downloaded them from the net and installed the device as com3. you are now good to go.At this point you can now click on SPS in TIS2000 select Generic Pass Thru as your device and your good to program!!Satisfied, VXDIAG VCX NANO GM device works as a clone to the GM MDI.

How to fix 2010 Benz S550 error "Air Suspension malfunction"

 

Need to have someone check for fault codes using MB diagnostics like MB sd connect C5 /C4 while doing so also re-calibrate suspension. DIY – check all sensors/connections, revisit struts and control valve for connection problems/leaks, check compressor harness/connection. Worst case scenario possible strut internal leakage in which case it would need to be replaced.

Here comes one question:

One question I have is around Y36/6, I don’t see that in my vehicle or at least not in that layout. If I look at the closeup of the Y36/6 in the attached document, it does not match what I see in the picture below, in the attachment/closeup I see 6 white rubber/plastic tubes coming out and the location is color coded but if you look at the picture y36/6 has 4 metal tubes coming out on the side, is it because the closeup is shown after a cover has been removed?

Also, on mine, on top of the compressor there is a silver metallic block that has 4 metal tubes coming out from the top and not from the sides, is the difference due to mine not being 4Matic?

Last but not the least, all the diag and re-calibration you talk about, can those be done through MB STAR Tool?

 

Here is the answer:

4matic does not matter, Y36/6 is the valve block @ compressor only thing that might appear different is labeling could be missing. STAR should accommodate re-calibration & diagnostics.

Finally, I purchased STAR C5 with SD disk, here is the link.

 

Compressor and valve unit are behind the bumper just in front of the right wheel. If you remove the right front wheel and the wheel well liner you will see the valve block.

Here’s the pic for quick reference

What’s the deal with jacking the car?

I typically follow the WIS procedures. For the suspension work you would normally want to release pressure from the struts in order to avoid damage to them or you. I’ve always done this via Xentry.

 

What type of lug?

After finally understanding how to locate and test the air leak at the valve, it turns out my wheels have special lugs all of them as opposed to one being the lock nut. It looks like flower, what gives??? I only have the usual MM impact wrench socket. What is it called and where to get it?

 

Reply: So, 17mm has been stock on many Mercedes for some time. The Convex (flower head) bolts appeared with the Maybach and then the W221 and are also on several other models. It is entirely possible that someone put 17mm hex head bolts on your car or even another size, do you have aftermarket wheels? You might just take a 17mm, 18mm, 19mm, etc. out to the car with you to see which one fits best. At the very least the lug wrench in the tool kit in the trunk should fit.

 

I fixed my Airmatic issues Friday, so relieved.

I replaced the valve block (which I suspect was actually fine) and as I was putting the lines back in, I noticed a very small crack on one of the strut air lines where it must have been bent around the brass fitting. I cut off the bad inch and reconnected the line to the fitting, and now the suspension works just fine. I drove it for 7 hours yesterday (road trip) and not a single problem manifested itself! I did a soapy water leak test but this must have been too small to see.

Regarding that additional pump/component in the fender: I was able to take off the torx bolts holding it to the bracket there and slide the part over to the right. It actually fit pretty nicely just resting on the bottom of the FR fender/bumper. Anyways, just sliding it out of the way gave me enough room to work on the valve block.

Basic steps:

Removed wheel and wheel fender liner

Removed 2 torx bolts holding that mystery part on then carefully slid it off the bracket and braced it against the bumper/fender. Be very careful not to mess with the pressure lines too much, I’m not sure how much flexing they’re rated for but it certainly isn’t much.

Use a 10 mm wrench to crack open all the fittings at the valve block and drain the air system (compressor fitting uses a 12 mm)

Unscrew the single screw holding the valve body on and then slide the whole thing out, vehicle right. A rubber fitting holds it on the other end, it just slides off

 

I am posting a youtube video on the process:

 

If you have the same problem, you might as well get the valve body JIC… and follow the video instructions.
