How to connect CGDI MB to w164 EIS on bench

Looking for the wiring diagram that CGDI Prog MB connects to w164 EIS on bench? read this post.


my cgdi mb can’t connect to w164 EIS on bench – I have got gateway emulator but need to make proper cable for it, could You help me with wiring diagram ? – I know that aliexpress has got nice kit of cables but can’t wait a month or so for delivery.

I have got XHORSE Power ADAPTER with direct cable for W164, but it doesn’t work with CGDI – I noticed that this adapter doesn’t allow to pass power and data when connected between cgdi and w164 EIS, seems to be useless for CGDI owners for now. That’s why I decided to connect ordinary gateway emulator but need connection diagram to build a cable.
