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.

Question:

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.

btw.
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.

CGDI Pro MB Mercedes Benz Programmer review all key lost OK

CGDI Prog Mercedes Benz key programmer review on what works, very nice CGDI MB tool ??
1. CGDI MB tool adds only key with the option “with key”.
2. CGDI MB tool program new key with the option “without key” when all keys lost.
3: CGDI MB tokens
4: CGDI MB tool VS Xhorse VVDI in PCB
5. CGDI MB update

1. CGDI MB tool adds only key with the option “with key”.
– W220 first test, Read Blank Key, Read Write Erase key OK, read EZS and Password from Key…works

– Tested on W212
Read EZS —> OBD work Fine
Calulating PW from EZS —> Work fine Online Server
Key Calculating —> v041 & v051 Work fine online Server

– Mercedes W212 2010 e250 Petrol Automatic works

– Mercedes W221 2010 Facelift S600 V12 works

– W207 on bench OK, 11 minutes

– W203 2004 spare key making takes about 13 minute when begining to programming new key. Read pass NEC key by IR and calculate PSW
Key still working after get PSW.

2. Program new key with the option “without the key” when all keys lost.
– test all keys lost on w164 need gateway.

– Tested w212 ALL KEY LOST !!! In car, done by OBD

Automotive key programming CGDI MB tool works good to do W207 W204 lost keys on bench.

had VVDI and CGDI,CGDI is faster and no problem to get PSW:

13-2

Question: when we have CGDI tool working all by OBD why lads want the tool to work on the bench???
Answer: For example if car is some further from workshop and you must spent time driving to the car or customer is just TOO far to drive, so then he can sent EIS or drive by himself bringing EIS it with him at workshop. It’s time saver and what if tool will not work via OBD? You will loose many time driving ex. 30 miles x2. If you have on bench, you can work at your place without risk of wasting time. Also calculating psw at the place of car might last 30 minutes, 1 hour in all keys lost? It’s much time to sit in the car + you have to take care of battery charger. If you have on bench, you can drink a coffee or a beer if you want and enjoy the waiting time
Still no tool which can do all merc by OBD anyway…

– W203 with W209 EZS all keys lost, done in the car about 70mn: Successful.

– Calculation PSW always the first time, never fail.

13-3

-Plug USB to computer, software recognizes at once. So I take 2 used BE key put in and read. Software say need 12V.
So I plug 12V and read and reset to unused quickly. Will test on bench W209 as key lost later.

CGDI MB Feedback

1. generate a password in Sprinter W906 2017 year.
2. Password calculation for w212 – done.
3. CGDI reset very well BE key,BE key is after market chinese key.
4. CGDI Mercedes Benz Programmer can work to any car FBS3. Procedure:Read EZS, choose with or without key, query for key password, save. Load dump with psw, calculation key dump, write key with unused key track.
5. W211 2004 YEAR add key ,10 min job!
6. W164 EIS type all keys lost possible only after 2009
7. I did key x164 GL 2012.
All OK.
All done in 10-12 mn.
8.Actual CGDI cannot work with old Kline ELV, only 204 207 212 ELV or emulator.
Processing, read, get erase PSW, renew. 204 need read ezs data, erase psw, and wipe ezs. After load data EZS and sync
9.Can renew ELV for w212
Yes 204 207 212, but if fatal error, not possible for now.
Need change NEC chip or use emulator

CGDI MB tested failure and explanation from CGDI engineer:
CGDI work not on all by OBD
W906 Sprinter don’t work (CGDI Supports W906 only CAN BUS not K-line)
W230 SL55 AMG 2006 dont work (CGDI supports W230 CAN BUS, you can send EIS and CGDI MB tool to factory to add K-line)

3: CGDI MB tokens
1. CGDI Prog MB can calculate the password twice free each day for the first half year (from the day you activate device)
2. It will cost usd70 for another half year tokens, and after you pay for it, you can calculate online two times per day too. (to get new authorization for tokens, it will take about 12hours after you pay usd70 to us)
What’s more, if you have CG100 PROG III Airbag Restore Devices or CGDI Prog BMW MSV80, you can pass us serial number to bundle them together and you can have two more tokens each day, which means 4 free tokens per day.

4: CGDI MB tool VS Xhorse VVDI in PCB
CGDI MB tool is not VVDI clone, open CGDI and you can see the PCB is complete other than from VVDI and MCU is other than from VVDI !!! CGDI is cheaper than VVDI that’s right!
