If it does not install automatically you may have to go in to: Control panel> Performance and maintenance> System > Hardware> Device manager. In this menu you will be able to select the tool and update the driver.
2. How to read the ECU by Galletto 1260?If possible run an extension cable down to your car and connect your charger. Make sure there are no other programs running that could cause the computer to crash.
At first you should Remove the fuse box cover which is beneath the steering wheel. To do this you must turn the clip a quarter turn. Perhaps Need A large flat blade screw driver  to do the job instead you.
– then Connect the Galletto inferface to the car’s diagnostics port and Connect the USB side to the laptop.

-Switch on the ignition key to two clicks (don’t start the engine) until the test lights illuminate
-NEXT Select Peugeot/Citroen, Bosch EDC 15 C2 29f400BT.
-Select ECU data. You will then see a code such as 0281010362. This means that the tool has connected to the ECU successfully.
-Now select read data. You can name and save the ECU data. The file format should be **.bin (e.g. Peugrot-edc-15.bin)
-When reading is complete wait for the message and follow the instructions: Switch off the ignition and then click ok -> Wait ten seconds -> switch on the ignition and click ok.
-Now You should have a copy of your original ECU data file on your laptop.
-This file can be sent over to remap.
3. How to flash the ECU by Galletto 1260 interface?You have to transfer remapped file over tolaptop once you received it. And It is very important for you to check the file size is 512KB, you must also check the consistency of the file using the check sum tool:
-Connect the Galletto inferface to the car’s diagnostics port and Connect the USB side to the laptop.
-Open the program named ‘NEW_SERIAL’.
-Switch on the ignition key to two clicks (don’t start the engine) until the test lights illuminate
-Select Peugeot/Citroen, Bosch EDC 15 C2 29f400BT.
-Select ECU data. You will then see a code such as 0281010362. This means that the tool has connected to the ECU successfully.
-Select ‘Open file’, and then select the new remapped file which you wish to load to the ECU.
-Select download file. This step can not be interrupted, so Make sure there is no other software running and don’t knock the cable etc, it’s best to remain completely still to eliminate any possible risk.
-Afterwards, when the program prompts, switch off the ignition once the lift pump has stopped. Then press ok and wait ten seconds. You will then be prompted to switch it back on. Do as instructed and the process is complete.
Now You can enjoy your remapped ECU!


Ktag and Kess v2 ecu programming review

Bought a bundle of Ktag and kess v2 last week.

And the kit arrived today. Shipped from China.
Attempting to use the ecu programmers this weekend.
Installed all appropriate software.

I run it on Windows xp


Edit: i successfully tested on some ECUs using the ktag and kess. Used without network connection.


Chinese pcb but high quality, i have this kess and ktag pcb in my old clones ( kess v2 fw: v4.036 and ktag fw: v6.070 and work well without any fault, also work with 24v)


ktag-fw-v7-020-kess-v2-v5-017-4 ktag-fw-v7-020-kess-v2-v5-017-5

kess and ktag tested in old ecus, works perfect (Sim 32, edc15p+, me7.5, me7.5.10, me7.5.30, Edc17c54, etc)

New Protocols Ecu Tested:

In short, KESS V2 is perfect for OBD use, while KTag is perfect for Jtag, BDM and all the Boot application (tricore and ST10).

With KESS V2 you programming directly through the OBD port of the vehicle, while with Ktag you need to take apart the ECU and  open it, after you can make the read/write operation.

Many ECU has the advantage that can be read and write from OBD port (so KESS V2 is perfect), but there are lot ECU that need to disassemble from the car and open and this is the case for all the ECU that need to be programmed with Jtag, BDM and Boot protocols, so KTAG is needed. And that is why i bought Ktag and kess v2 together.

Use KTAG to read ECU ME9.7

This blog below will show you the steps how I use KTAG to read ECU ME9.7. Hope it helps users.




My car: Mercedes W221 S350


i bought it from at a nice price €75, i know that its retail price is €130


Note: Try this Tutorial AT YOUT OWN RISK!


Before start reading ECU, i make a backup copy firstly.

First heat the ECU unit edge and open ECU carefully.

ECU inside as picture show:




Open KTAG software.

Then I Choose “Mercedes” “S (W221)” and “S350 3500 V6…BOSCH ME9.7”.



Connect then cable 14P600KT02 to the connector of ECU.

Refer to below pin out diagram:

Red color: Pin 15, 16: +12V

Black: Pin 2: GND



Step3. Apply solder paste on the red area in ECU as following picture:

Solder cable to ECU:

ktag-ecu-programming-tool-read-w221-s350-ecu-7 ktag-ecu-programming-tool-read-w221-s350-ecu-8


Step4. Go Back to KATG software and choose plug-in “P102”.


I clicked “Read” and wait for a while.

Then Save the bin file.

Finally, i successfully used K-TAG chip tuning tool to read Mercedes W221 ME9.7 ECU !
