BMW E46 ABS SRS/Airbag reset Tools Recommend

Torque pro is still flaky and limited:

Torque Pro is not designed, marketed or claim to support more than basic OBDII. I do not know of any low cost smart phone Apps that support ABS or Airbags at this point in time, there are some medium cost Apps that claim they support ABS and/or Airbags and more, but these are still flaky and limited. There are also some issues with the low cost wireless interfaces where the will not even communicate with anything other than the DME/ECU.

Not sure why everyone wants to cheap out on OBD2 tools? I understand everyone has a budget, but at the end of the day, with shop labor rates close to or over $100 per hour, even a $250 will pay for itself very quickly.

BMW Scanner 1.4.0:

BMW Scanner 1.4.0

OBDII scanner will only read OBDII codes. You need to get a BMW Scanner 1.4.0.

You can get it to run on Xp system or XP Mode in Windows 7 (Step-by-step ), or vmware XP in windows 7, you just have to figure it out.

Although BMW Scanner 1.4.0 may be an option, it does have its uses, it is a PITA because it is PC based and any PC based product to use in the car can be very difficult to deal with for many reasons.

These are decent tools and also support ABS and SRS/Airbags:

Launch Creader CRP129

CRP123 can do:

I actually have a CRP123 and it is a decent tool, it supports more advanced live data as well as ABS and Airbag(SRS). There is on tool graphing that can be helpful, however, a smart phone App for Logging will almost always blow any tool, even in the $5k range, out of the water IMHO.

Autel Autolink AL619:

I have not had my hands on the Autel, however, I have a more advanced Autel Scanner and it likely is a big brother to the tool linked. Updates are pretty easy and overall use of dedicated scan tools is much easier than smart phone Apps or even BMW Scanner 1.4.0.

Autolink AL619 is claimed to do OBDII CAN ABS and SRS, it should be more professional on working with ABS and SRS.

Launch Creader CRP129 can do:

If you plan on investing in something more expensive, suggest you also check out the Launch CRP129, it supports electronic parking brakes and a few other things like service indicator resets as I recall.

The most vesicles and low cost set of tools for an E46 is a smart phone App and BMW Scanner 1.4.0, however, if you own other model vehicles or work on them, you will need a scan tool that is not so model specific. It is also much easier to use a dedicated scan tool in the car as there is little to no boot time, it is powered off the car and can easily be taken out on the road or on trips. I DO NOT travel without at least a smart phone App and interface, but I often will take one of my more advanced tools with me.

There may be some other options on the market as well depending on your requirements and budget.

How to marry ECM / ECU to Saab car

This post is about how to marry ECM / ECU to Saab car with GM tech2 and TIS 2000.

Tools to use:

GM tech2:

Recommend the best quality

http://www.obd2tool.com/goods-1568-GM+Tech2+GM+Scanner+-CANdi++TIS+%28Works+for+GMSAABOPELSUZUKIISUZUHolden%29.html

gm-tech2-gm-diagnostic-scanner-new-1

TIS 2000 may be required

Recommend this version, which work with Saab

http://www.obd2tool.com/goods-4518-TIS2000+CD+and+USB+Key+for+GM+TECH2+For+GM+Car+Model.html

Pre required:

– To marry a used ECU to the car with a GM tech2, you do need the original ECU to copy files from…

– You also need to make sure the software on the used ecu is right for your engine…

Procedure:

You do not need to divorce any module. You just enter your VIN when you get to that screen on the Tech2.

 

Think about it this way, if the ECU was completely fried it could still be replaced with a new one. The old (any old module – not just ECU) needs to be removed via Tech 2 from the car that is getting a replacement module. The donor car does not matter at all. Then the replacement module gets added to the car via Tech 2 needing a replacement module. The module may need SPS programming to load the correct version of software based on Engine, Market and other options depending on the module.

These are the procedures (Saab 9-3 (9440) 4 2004 for example):

Procedures before dismantling control module:

f371d009-01

The control module is sensitive to electrostatic discharges. In order to prevent damage to internal components in control modules, they must be changed very carefully in the following manner:

Never touch the pins on a control module with your hands or clothes.

• Ground yourself by touching the car body/engine. Unplug the connector on the car’s control module.

• Ground yourself by touching the car body/engine. Plug-in the connector on the car’s control module.

When the control module is to be replaced

• Place the old control module in the return packaging without touching its pins.

• Keep the new control module in its packaging as long as possible.

Before removing a control module, Tech 2 must be used to separate the control module from the car. From the “All” menu, select the control module under “And/Remove”. Then select “Remove” and follow the instructions. The ignition key must be in the ON position. TIS 2000 may be required. Once the control module has been separated from the car, turned the ignition key to the OFF position. The control module can then be removed. Carry out the “Remove” action with Tech2 even if the control module cannot be contacted or is completely missing because data in other control modules must be changed.

The action involves the following:

Security codes will be reset, bus lists updated, data in other control modules updated and data that may have to be written into a new control module read and displayed.

Measures after changing the control module:

SPS programming

Connect Tech 2 and use TIS 2000 to check whether the control module needs to be

programmed. Access the menu “SPS”, select “Read control module data” and follow the

instructions. The intention is that the control module shall be loaded with the latest available

software and in addition adapted to the car model and market.

After SPS programming: Check that the clock is set correctly and that pinch protection is

working. If necessary, set the date and time and carry out Calibration of pinch protection.

Add

When the control module is fitted and in some cases SPS programmed, Tech 2 must be used

to “marry” the control module to the car. Access the menu “All” and select control module

under “Add/Remove”. Then select “Add” and follow the instructions. The ignition key must be

in the ON position. TIS 2000 may need to be used.

 

This happens with regard to data:

Characteristics files are downloaded, security codes are loaded, bus lists are updated, data in

other control modules is updated and trouble codes are deleted from all control modules.

Trionic T8 control module replacement:

Trionic T8 control module (589)

To remove

Carry out actions before removing control module.

1. Ignition key in LOCK position.

2. Remove the upper engine cover.

f224r075-02

3.

Carefully press down the catches and carefully unplug the connectors from the control module one at a time so that the connection pins, etc. are not damaged.

f224r076-03

4.Remove the control module.

f224r077-04

To fit

  1. Fit the control module. Do not forget the ground cable.

f224r078-05

Tightening torque 10 Nm (7 lbf ft)

Important

Take care when plugging in the connector so as not to damage or press out the pins/sleeves in the connector. For further information regarding connectors, refer to Connectors, handling and inspection.

2.

Plug in the connectors and check that they are locked.

Launch X431 Creader VIII(CRP129) only 218USD

I love to use Launch Creader CRP129 also named Creader viii , I only want to read error codes, not reprogram anything, it is from Launch with good quality and can update on Launch official website. I used to get from Aliexpress and ebay, they all sell about 299USD (198EUR), but may 1 I find obd2tool.com only sells 218USD from may 1 to oct 15, then I ordered one, at may 4 I got it, I was very impressed with the quality of the product and the nice clear screen, CRP129 was supplied with a 2GB TF card fitted inside the tool and another 1GB TF card fitted inside the TF/USB adaptor. I used to doubt why it is so cheap, but after I received it and tested, it works exactly the same as that I bought from others, It cover more than 20 main car models in America, Europe and Asia and  test Engine, Transmission, ABS and Airbag systems, it read & clear trouble codes, Read Dynamic Data Stream and more.

CRP129

It works great.
