BMW R1200GS 2015 Motorcycle Key Programming Solution

dave1987 | 15 February, 2019 04:38


BMW R1200GS year 2015 Motorcycle
Purpose: Add a spare key. Have original key in hand
Chip type:4D70
ECU: Bosch ME17.2 BMSX
First Try:
Copy key with original key using key copy machines. Try many key copier JMD Handy baby IICN900Keydiy etc, some can read chip type but ALL failed to copy key.
Second Try:
Try IMMO Off method
Remove the ECU.  It is a Bosch BMSX type ECU.
Follow Ktag master wiring to read Bosch ME17.2 BMSX IROM TC1797 BMW (P452)



Read data quickly
Immo off and write back to ECU
Nothing changes 2 days later.
Immo off failed.
Third Try:
Read immo data to to write key
Load data to TangoVVDI2TM100 key programmers, all failed to write key.
These devices support old BMW motorbikes with 46 chip only.  None will write a 4D70 chip key.
Last Try:
Finnaly I was told by some motorcycle experts,  the TMPro2 (Transponder Maker Pro) is a motor beast.
So got my TMPro2 ordered here:


Device is very clean and simple. A main unit, a few connectors and an eeprom adapter.
Visit the official website, download device software and got it well installed.

Directly connect device with laptop via USB port, don’t need extra power supply.
Software is multi-language available (Bulgarian, English, French, Portuguese, Polish, Hungarian, Spanish, Serbian, Italian, Czech, Chinese, Greek, Turkish and Romanian). Here I tested the Chinese version.
There are 211 software modules available currently, including 38 Motorbike modules.

It is said that it is THE ONLY tool in the world that can make key for keyless BMW motorbikes.
Device does come with some FREE functions:  read chip information, read and write EEPROMS 93cXX, 24cXX, 25cXXX, 95cXXX, S29190, X5328, Motorola 912 / 9S12, Microchip PIC18F252, read Motorola HC805P18 (need adapter), unlock Megamos Crypto ID48 chip and change mileage on BMW CAS FEM/BDC.
It can still used as a chip programmer if don’t buy any software module.
There are several BMW motorbike modules depends on years.
For R1200GS, you need to purchase module 191.
For BMSX or BMS2K or BMSMP ECU – to see where keys are stored you must check what is on ignition barrel.
If there is IMMOBOX UNIT – keys are stored in this unit but not in ECU.


Purcshe the license from the again. They got it activated very quickly.
Then follow the wiring diagram to connect

Read the immo data and load data to TMPro2 transponder key programmer to write key (same procedure to add key and make all keys lost).
Result: successfully add a workingn new key using tmpro.
Total cost: a new key ($400 from ebay)+ TMPro2 device 200 Euro or so+ 191 Module 1200 Euro

VCI Pod and DRB III for Chrysler 300M ABS Bleeding

dave1987 | 23 January, 2019 03:19


Here’s something good i found when i bled ABD for my 300M. Very useful…. Hope it works for you guys also.
Complaints i posted in
I noticed something with my car that I wanted to comment on since “testing” my ABS for the first time this season. After arriving to school just in time for a final I put my foot down hard on the brake while pulling into the gravel lot, which was frozen over just like a skating rink. As I fully anticipated the ABS came on and was effective. However, once I came to a complete stop the pedal went soft and I had to pump it 6 or 7 times before it firmed back up (no jokes please). I have noticed my brake pedal is a little softer than most other LH cars I have driven but I have never noticed variance like this after ABS braking. I am very familiar with braking using ABS in my car and I think this is something abnormal.
Tips I got from user97:
Did the fluid level drop — if it did, then you probably got a leak somewhere and air in the system.
If the fluid level is OK but pedal is softer after ABS engagement, there is a possibility that a valve in the ABS system did not close fully.
In order to provide anti-lock capability, ABS unit has the ability to isolate any wheel from the M/C pressure as well as relieve the pressure into a temporary storage (accumulator). The ABS pump then pumps the excess fluid back into the M/C (hence pedal pulsing).
There is a possibility that the valve on one wheel has not completely closed and allows bleeding into the “accumulator”. As ABS system is not engaged, the pump will not start to empty the accumulator. So you are basically compressing the accumulator spring before any significant brake action on that circuit would commence. Accumulator has a rather small volume, so it would reach capacity pretty quickly. I noticed that there is a significant amount of rust that builds up in the brake fluid as the lines rust from inside due to moisture accumulation. May be a flake of rust got stuck in the valve and provides a miniscule leak into accumulator. ABS monitors state of the valves — anything significant would trigger an ABS fault.
It might be something else, like M/C leaking internally past pistons. But on the off chance, I would exercise ABS a few more times. Valve action would most likely cure the issue if it is the problem.
Search on Youtube and there is some video that illustrates ABS HCU operation
(AFAIK, on our cars ABS controls rear wheels independently rather than as a pair).
Playing with DRB III, you discover how potent ABS system is. When running ABS HCU test, it instructs you to apply pressure to the brake (with engine off/booster bled). Then ABS valves open up, filling up accumulators. It is very impressive — pedal falls to the floor without any resistance. As the next stage of the test, it closes the valves and turns on the pump, which literally pumps the pedal back to the original state. While I knew how ABS worked in general terms, I never realized the degree to which ABS could potentially interfere with normal brake system. No wonder, the unit is designed to be so fail safe, as to prevent such failures (turns itself off at the slightest sign of trouble).
Normally, there should be no need to bleed ABS, as long as MC was never run dry, you should be OK. I would be careful about sucking fluid out of MC — a little is OK, just make sure that neither half gets empty to prevent air injection.
On a side note, for DRB iii, you’d better use VCI Pod, NOT the clone Micropod 2 (even the high quality SP271-C1 cannot work good with DRB emulator. ) look here: tested on 300M. VCI Pod says yes but Micropod2 clone cannot work….


How to flash frf or sgo with VCP 5.5.1 clone?

dave1987 | 22 January, 2019 03:14


There is an example of how to flash frf/sgo with VCP 5.5.1 and VAN CAN PRO china clone cable. It works for the BCM as well…
Flashing car’s components can consume a lot of electric power, hence the charger.
Flashed RCD510 firmware a while back. Took more than 2 hours, despite the file being a few MB… Flashed steering rack to modify characteristic curve took only a minute. So better be safe than sorry!
Clone vag can pro or original:
Clone is Version 5.5.1. Genuine is actualy Version 8.x
You are limited with some tasks, but it can be used to flash some cars components for a good price. Has some guided functions, but again, limited…
As for the battery charger, the risk is yours. The Car battery should not drop below 12V when flashing.
Usually, supply 13.6V fixed voltage 10Amps-20Amps to the battery (you have to disable DRLs, radio off, and HVAC off always)
The process: for BCM flash
Basically: Open VCP > Click “More” > “Confort” > “Central Electric” > “Flasher” > “Open File” > Choose “VAS Firmware” and select your file .frf / .sgo > Press “Flash .sgo” > Wait…





Steps in detail to flash frf/sgo with VAG CAN Pro VCP software:
VCP Flash Dumper allows you to create a binary images of .odx, .frf or .sgo Flash files.
The data format (unencrypted / encrypted or uncompressed / compressed) does not change, which means that an encrypted Flash file is also converted to an encrypted binary file.
You can launch this application via Guided Functions (OCF) – APPS – Flash Dumper.

Select a Flash file (1).
Define file type (2) if necessary:
VCP Firmware, VAS Firmware, ASAM Firmware, ODIS Firmware
The contents of the selected Flash file will be displayed in a list (3).
Move (Export; 4) the file to an appropriate location.
It will be stored as a .BIN file and can be edited as necessary.
Hoping you’ll succeed..!
Good luck

Clone Mongoose Cable SP116 SP205/-B Review and Difference

dave1987 | 19 January, 2019 04:32


What’s the main difference of JLR Mangoose SDD cable SP116 SP205 SP205-B and is it good to have a cloned unit?
What is SP116 and SP205SP205-b?
The supplier numbers of the different Mangoose versions.
For the manufacturer codes
SP116 means Mongoose
SP205 means Mongoose Pro (-B I guess is just a revision)
I have been using the Mongoose clones for years.
Supplier was I am using JLR 130 and 134 on a designated 8,9″ Netbook and that’s absolutely sufficient.
I bought all around 10 adapters from them to also provide friends with that functionality. each of them worked fine so far.
I have used them so far on my X308 (2001), on a X308 (1997), X100 (1999), X350 (2005), X400 (2001). So far they never failed.
I have been screening DTCs but also programmed keys out of and into the safety module in a X308 and a X400. Even new keys could be programmed into a X400 so far. I will try this with my X308 this year too.
I also added a new instrument cluster (odometer) into a X400 when it had been immobilized by the change of the odometer.
All of this had been done in the JLR 130 in XP Pro SP3 on a Acer Netbook.
For me it makes more sense to have a “handy” device for fault detection and/or programming.
But this, of course, is up to everyone himself and it could be from 8,9″ to 14″ as I tested here:
 I once opened both – the original Mongoose Pro and the clone.
From the components being used there was no difference – might just be the programming.

But you have always to be aware what you are doing there.
Writing code into control modules is always a risk – power loss, loosened plugs. Always double check your arrangement.
Best regards

After that, Nexiq2 will show up in the list of multiplexers-make sure you choose Nexiq Usb Link 2 USB and the pass-thru option anytime SSM4 asks you. I highly recommend you ONLY use the USB option and avoid Bluetooth and WIFI , especially when flashing.

This is for your information.
Nexiq2 the original ones have chips in the cables. It will only work with the original cables. The Nexiq2 clone is in fact a nexiq1 inside in a case that looks like Nexiq2. Nexiq1 cables will not work with Nexiq2. The Chinese nexiq cables will not work with the original Nexiq2. Also if you update a nexiq clone over the internet it will fry it and render it useless
Very important:
Everything here software is aimed for share only!
You will take a risk to try any link above with the device you have.
If something bad happens to you, will say sorry but hold no responsibility!
Think twice before you decide to download app and go to a test!
If you have a Nexiq 2 clone, you’re advised not to do so.
Nexiq 2 clone is tested with software comes with itself.

How to use Vgate iCar2 for BMW X1 F48 coding?

dave1987 | 10 January, 2019 02:55


Here I have something want to share with you guys, about BMW hidden features esp. X1 F48 coding at the lowest price. 20 usd (a vgate icar 2 adapter) helps me with all coding.
Enabling hidden features at the consumer level is mainly meant to improve Comfort / Convenience and maybe, to activate a few other cool stuff. It is important that the engine / drivetrain parameters are left untouched unless one is trained to do so. It is prudence to limit Coding only to activate the important features that make our life easy on the day to day basis and not to keep meddling with it on a regular basis. As we are just changing the status of the stock features, the changes made are only over-written in the registry. Coding as we do with the BimmerCode does not add lines to the programme and therefore, the checksum or the coding registration should not change. This is similar to selecting options from the iDrive Infotainment system, except that they are not directly accessible.
Hardware remains the same without any changes; it is only that their default status change and that anyway can be altered by the user ON-THE-GO. There is no way this can have any adverse effect on the car as a whole and therefore, denying warranty is not justifiable. However, preserving a copy of the stock setup file can prove invaluable at times.
The App allows coding of BMW cars and has 2 stages; the first being the simple / straight forward one, which covers the most common features, that too in English. This is sufficient for most purpose. The second being an advanced one, needs in-depth knowledge and unfortunately is in German language; therefore, best avoided unless one can understand German language and knows exactly what he /she is up to. The app saves a copy of the log file every time it scans. This can be exported to an iMac through iTunes for later use.
It is a good practice to check error logs through BimmerLink before attempting any changes. This can serve as a reference for future too. It is important to keep the slate clean after every session and therefore, investing on both BimmerCode and BimmerLink makes sense; BimmerCode is used to make changes to the default status of the features and BimmerLink is used to check / clear errors if any.
It is good to turn-on Airplane mode and enable only Wi-Fi connection before starting the activity. This will avoid any calls / messages interrupting the activity itself which can stall communication.
It is recommended to keep the Engine off with the ignition turned-on during the activity. As the modules are reset after applying the changes to the registry, the engine will be turned off. This can create a tense situation un-necessarily.
As the modules are reset during the process, there can be communication drop between modules which can throw-up errors. These errors are automatically erased during the end stages of coding. However, after the coding activity, it is good to manually check for errors through BimmerLink and erase them if needed.
It is best to code features pertaining to one module at a time and verify the results before attempting another module. Some modules which are a combination of analog and digital components will be slower in communication. Therefore, for modules such as Infotainment system, Speedo-Combo, etc. slow communication needs to be selected under settings.
App can be downloaded for free and verified in the Demo mode before purchasing / unlocking the same for coding. Quick start guide and FAQ including the list of supported cars and the options available are all available within the app too.
Make sure that the Mobile battery is fully charged and plan ahead to complete the coding activity within 15-20 minutes so that the car battery does not drain. It is a good practice to keep all accessories switched off during the activity.



A must have for reading and clearing errors. I would not recommend coding without having this app, as it is very important to clear errors if any, after the activity. This will also help as a future reference. The app also has features to display sensor values, control exhaust flap, along with the provision to have required parameters to be displayed as a dashboard. I am yet to check these features as everything is in German; will update as and when I figure out something!
Vgate iCar2 Wifi OBD2 adapter:
It was available with me came in handy. I downloaded both BimmerCode and BimmerLink apps from Apple Store for approximately Rs.2100 each. Wi-Fi dongle worked fine with communication speed similar to that I have experienced with the VCDS.
Vgate iCar2 Wifi OBD2 adapter:
BimmerCode & BimmerLink:
But honestly, I miss VCDS; wish Ross-Tech had their product covered for BMW too.
Features that I could successfully code:
1. Auto Start/Stop system OFF by default
2. Auto fold/unfold ORVM with lock/unlock
Indian variant X1 F48 does not have the hardware pertaining to the front passenger seat belt reminder!! Therefore this non-existing feature can-not be activated!! Crap!!
Of-late, BMW has hard-coded lane change indicator cycle selector. Therefore this can-not be accessed for coding. Choice through Infotainment system is only between 1 and 3 cycles.
Auto Handbrake activation is not possible through BimmerCode. Have to try my luck elsewhere. I read somewhere on the net that this is possible through E-Sys.
I will be glad to support fellow BHPians in Bangalore to activate these features if they need / interested. It will be nice if someone has Carly or the E-Sys in Bangalore, so that they can be compared. Maybe, they can activate a couple of things that the BimmerCode couldn’t.
Thanks for reading!
