Xentry DAS & HTT-WIN Star Diagnosis Softwares

Mercedes Star Diagnosis software 2018.12 Version release work with Mercedes SD Connect C4, SD C5 for SCN coding online no error. 2018.12 Mercedes Star Diagnosis come with Xentry DAS HTT-WIN for Mercedes Benz old & new cars till 2018. What’s the difference of HHT-WIN and Xentry and DAS? why choose obd2tool.com 2018.12 Mercedes Star Diagnosis software? Check the reasons below.

2018.12 Mercedes Star Diagnosis come with Xentry DAS HTT-WIN on windows 7 32 bit System

Xentry-DAS-HTT-WIN-1
2018.12 Xentry diagnosis software is the latest version software available for SCN Coding programming, the software such as Xentry 2017.05, Xentry 2017.09 cannot login for SCN online coding again.
2018.12 Xentry diagnosis software installed win7 32bit system with HHT-WIN software work for old model, some other Xentry diagnosis software with 64 bit NOT includ HHT-WIN software.

HHT-WIN vs Xentry vs DAS:
Xentry took me to DAS, and DAS switched over (automatically) to good old HHT-WIN, again. Guess my 16-year old SUV’s system is a bit ancient in the scheme of Mercedes-Benz technology.

From what I’ve seen:
All MB from late 80’s to 99 = HHT-WIN
All MB from 2001 to 2009 = DAS
All MB from 2010+ = Xentry

The year 2000 is a weird transition period — some MB made in 1999 but the model year is 2000 will be diagnosed from the 38-pin under the hood and thus use HHT-win. Other MB made in early 2000 and sold as a 2000 model will have the OBD port and the SDS will require the OBD cable to diagnosis….and will use DAS.

And then there are orphan cars, like some SLK models — some 2000-2001 SLK require the 38-pin.

I’ve even seen a 2000 E320 that had both 38-pin and OBD port — I could use either port to conduct a full diagnosis. That was funny.

HHT-WIN supports modules on Mercedes vehicles:
HHT-WIN should be able to read all Modules.
Having said that, for Model Years 1990 – 12/1993, the Roadster Soft Top Module has 30 possible fault codes associated with it.
Whereas for Model Years 1/1994 – 1996, the Roadster Soft Top Module has only 11 possible fault codes associated with it.

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

Customer’s problem:
We had purchased one set MB SD connect C5 with internal HDD from obd2tool.com, We really appreciate the faster shipment, all is well packed dhl week quickly received. But when we install the HDD to our computer, we have blue screen and doesn’t access to computer windows. We are wondering if we get the broken HDD……

Our Answers:

The BMW ICOM ICOM A2 A3 or MB Star C4 C5 drives we assign to our customers are generally AHCI-mode hard drives with SATA port.

If your laptop BIOS is not set to the same hard drive mode (AHCI mode), if you connected to our hard drive to your computer, there will be a blue screen or can not find the hard drive.Please make sure your HDD is set to AHCI in the BIOS.

To check this you turn the laptop on and press F2, it will enter the BIOS. Now go to “ONBOARD DEVICES” or “SYSTEM CONFIGURATION” then go to “SATA OPERATION” press enter and make sure its set to AHCI not ATA or any other option.

Please have a minimum of 2GB of ram/memory in your laptop, a lot of people only have 512mb or 1gb, it is OK but the new system may run slow and its recommend to really have 4GB ram, but 2GB also can be enough.

DAS Xentry C3 C4 Diagnostic Software, Resources, Wiki

1. Where to buy  Xentry C3 Multiplexer or C4 SD Connect?

The system was listed for sale and can be purchased from sellers on www.obd2tool.com.

2-1

Be wise when you purchase a Xentry DAX Multiplexer as there seems to be a lot of cloned versions on the market. Unfortunately, there isn’t a good way to know what is original or not. Buying DAS Xentry program Diagnostic Software for Mercedes Benz on Amazon at least adds an extra layer of protection in case there is an issue. We would not recommend buying from retailers that ship from China on eBay. Yes, you can return those units if there is a problem but you will have to pay return shipping and will not know if you are getting an original unit. We do not endorse any of these sellers and do not know if these are authentic versions.

2. What is Developer Mode Extension for DAS.

Developer extension of the DAS for Mercedes-Benz vehicles allows in-depth configuration and programming of the control units. This option is typically enabled for the factory version of the scanner. It was meant for development and testing purposes of the onboard electronic systems. It will allow the user to change the configuration of the car. For example, you can change the ECU, program to use a different engine model, change the speed limit or torque settings and a lot more. Using Developer Mode without knowing exactly what you are doing can be dangerous.
