How to use VXDIAG Nano GM solve ‘Service Active Handing’ warning

This is the most cost-effective way for ‘Service Active Handing’ warning to pull such codes right out of the box.

 

Will work right out of the box without a GM subscription, since the GDS2 version you get with it, does not connect to GM, so the “VM” GDS2 program does not need a GM subscription to work.

So with it, it will give you the DTC codes to begin with, and you can go into the code directed modules to check them to see what the problem is, what needs to be replaced or corrected.

So once you have GDS2 running and the GM Nano connected to the car and PC, step one is to go into to vehicle diagnostic, and use read vehicle wide DCT and id information. This will list the Dtc to start with.

Now back out of that menu, and go into module diagnostic, and depending which module the DTC code pointed you at, go in that module to read it’s data/trouble shoot the problems.

Again so long as you don’t need a brand new module that will need to be initially firmware vin flashed to lock it to the car, or need to get into a security menu to say learn a fob into the car (both part of the SPS program, not the GDS2 program), you don’t need a subscription to GM.

If you do need to use the SPS program, then you can get at least a three day subscription to GM, and it will load the needed subscription locked programs to your computer as you use them (your VM GDS2 program will be locked away in it own little folder safe, independent of the programs that the subscription programs that will be downloaded to your machine, and will only work while you have an active subscription to GM).

Really, check around in your area to see Who has a Clone MDI with Vm GDS2 to give you a hand. This will not only give you chance to see how the device and GDS2 is used, but will make short work of figuring out the problem of the car. Trust me, once you see the what GDS2 can do with the car, you will want it for yourself as well.

On the Corvette C6’s, by going through just the voltages of each module, I can tell where there is a electrical problem, before the problem causes a lose of communication down the line instead.

Hence if the ECM has a voltage of 14.3 with the reast of the modules , yet the RCDLR has a voltage of say 13.4V, know that there is either a bad connection to the module, ground point problem, or that the board has a cold solder joint that needs to be re-soldered; before it starts to cause DTC problems isntead.

On the F55 module, again a snap to catch problems before they happen to start throwing DTC codes, since I can check ever sensor for it’s voltage too. Hence say three of the level sensor are reading 2.1 volt, but one is reading 1.2 volts, you know it has a problem that needs to be resolved before it causes DTC codes next.

The BEST Solution for Newbies Failed to Install/Activate Xentry XDOS

This is the best solution for newbies who has trouble in 09.2018 Xentry XDOS installation or activation:

http://www.obdexpress.co.uk/wholesale/mb-sd-connect-compa...

 

Why do I think it’s the best for newbies?

Because the full kit (SDconnect C4 + 09.2018 XDOS + Dell D630)  is handy and help save a lot.

XENTRY-DAS-OPENSHELL-1

 

All software is installed on the Dell D630 laptop, done before shipping to your end.

With the dedicated serial port on D630, there is no issue for users…. it was plug and play… the HDD with Mercedes software is loaded into the Dell laptop and WIS/EPC and XENTRY/DAS has been activated with “activation keys” before delivery...you can use it for Mercedes-Benz diagnostics, coding or programming with SD connect C4, when you receive the package.

Note that HTT-WIN is updated to 09.2018 Mercedes software disk. Software released in 2017 and 2018 doesn’t come with HTT-WIN. But now, it comes again!

09.2018-htt-win-mercedes

 

On a side note, Dell D630 is second-hand but 100% functional - no worries!

 

 

With the SD connect C4 full kit, you’ll NEVER have issues of setup on a laptop, installation and activation as what the users complaints

 

Attach: Error and solution on Dell D630

 

Error: have now installed it on my recently acquired Dell 630. Everything installed well, however when I get to the point of using it and it automatically goes to use HHT(as my car is a 1993 model)it says"diagnostic connector is being initialised" however then it says"com port assigned! close other use!"

Solution: go to the windows system menu in control panel and under the harware section look at the com port assignmennts and make sure the com port you designated isn't already assigned to something else.

 

also, does the dell630 have a dedicated RS232 com port or are you using a usb/pcmcia/cardbus to RS232 converter.

In conjunction with an ELM327- based interface, ScanMaster is an ideal OBD solution (also known as ScanTool or OBD Scanner) for diagnosing all OBD-2 capable systems and is very well suited for automotive workshops as well as experienced home users and hobbyists.

 

All ECUs in the vehicle that support OBD-2 are automatically detected and can be diagnosed with our software. In many vehicles, these include the automatic transmission, brake systems, powertrain and other control devices.

Among other things besides the standardized diagnostic possibilities, the software offers extensive additional functions and evaluations, which are based on the data from the diagnostic interface. These are for example:

- The measurement and live display of fuel consumption

- Acceleration measurement of the vehicle from 0-100 km / h

- A very comprehensive power measurement, which enables the performance measurement (KW / PS and Nm) of the engine without much effort and expensive Dyno test bench

- Reading out and deleting error codes on older OBD-1 Opel and Alfa Romeo vehicles

- Dashboard (instrument cluster), optimized for touch control

- diagnostic Report

 

ScanMaster-ELM languages:

The following language translations are integrated into the program:
