Kess v2 & Galletto v54 Which is Better for BMW M5 E60 EDC17 ?

I have been remapping a 2006 BMW M5 E60.

I have the MPPS, but it’s not suitable for this so decide to buy a better tool , not sure if I should go for a Galletto v54 or the Kess V2

Any advice would be great, ideally I would like to get the one that covers most cars via OBD.

Advice from users:

1.Kess V2 is better solution.

2.EDC17 safer to do on the frame, and some only.

KESS and GALLETTO it is a good.

If you buy a fake you never know what to do, and if at all something impute.

3.The kess is more better than fgtech mpps etc

4.Kess is better tool for no w.

5.On MED17 with KESS cant do full read. File is somehow encrypted. With Galletto is fine.

6.My KESS is reworked and work great as original. I just say if I do full read (backup) the file is encrypted.

 

Galletto works well for boot mode tricore

1.For me both tools are doing a good JOB Kess is china clone but i have an original one as well. just need to update is to Master because at the moment is SLAVE.

2.FG Galleto V54 is Euro Clone and until now it never ever let me down . Anywaywhat i figure it out is that the tools are good and work good but the laptop configuration is quite important.

3.I use panasonic toughbook CF 19 and CF 52. Never had a single problem with both of them .

4.Buy a good galletto clone EU and no problems, very stable.

5.The FG have no cs correction in edc17 , kess have .

6.Galletto works well with edc17,

Chinese kess no!

Galletto is fine

Galletto working fine

GALLETTO works well in boot mode tricode

7.I use both, Kess v2 clone + Galletto v54 clone. But i prefer v 54 only because user fredliness and good working stability, no chance to suspend writing file or something else. Kess little bit fussy, and to much moronresistant and used only if V54 will not handle it but in plus a lot better for gasoline engines. V54 in 80% still needs rework after buying but after that works perfect

8.Buy both they are cheap enough get them reworked and then you have two good tools

9.Earlier Galetto didnt support MSS65 K-line ( E6x V10 Mpower ) . It can only read by CAN which is only LCI E6x . Not sure about kess and the latest Galletto version . Someone can double check please . Some chinese says kess is not working good with K-line .

10.I think its better to have boot clone tools they works on many units, about this ecu i think fg is the Best

11.Both of them have its pros and cons, its up to you to make decision.

12.I like like KessV2 is Safe,to work with them.

13.EU kess only sold by resellers of chinese clones..do the maths

buy both kess v2 and galletto v54 chinese clone tools, have a play, decide which you like best software wise

have it reworked, job done

galletto is compatible with more cars IMO kess is more user friendly

14.Galletto working ok w/ sirius 32

Solved! wiTECH 2.0 cannot Communicate with Any Module (All Modules are Red)

Here are some solutions of wiTECH MicroPod 2 communication failure with all modules.

Theory of operation:

Below are few different ways communication on a vehicle takes place:

Scan tool to the Central Gateway Module (Ex: SGW, TIPM, BCM, etc.)
Module to Module
Module to Device
Device to Module

Communication to the vehicle is established with a Micropod 2 scan tool, through the Data Link Connector (DLC) to the Central GateWay Module (CGW) over the Controller Area Network (CAN) Bus.

On this vehicle the Body Control Module (BCM) is the CGW between the high and low speed CAN Bus networks (CAN-C and CAN-IHS); and communicates with the scan tool through CAN C.

The CAN Bus architecture of this vehicle operates in a “hub” or “star” style, meaning all of the modules are connected at a central point in the Star Connectors. The terminating resistors for CAN Bus are located in the Star Connectors that are part of the body and instrument panel wiring harnesses. In other CAN Bus architectures a vehicle may operate in a “stub” or “backbone” style, meaning there is a single, main line that connects all modules. The terminating resistors for CAN Bus in the “stub” or “backbone” style are located in 2 separate dominant modules that are placed as far apart as is physically possible. The scan tool becomes another module on the vehicle’s networks by acting as the Master Module of all Bus networks while connected to the DLC  and contributes voltage to the operation of the CAN Bus.

The following vehicle interactions listed below will aid in predetermining the type of vehicle communication that is/isn’t available:

NOTE: If the Hazard Lamps and Headlamps are active, this indicates the BCM is functioning and is most likely not the cause of the CAN Bus fault.

Operating the Lock/Unlock button of the FOB with Integrated Key (FOBIK)

When any one of the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter buttons of the FOBIK are depressed, the onboard transmitter generates a high frequency RF request signal that is received and validated by the Radio Frequency Hub Module (RF Hub). If the RF Hub determines the RKE transmitter RF request signal was generated by a FOBIK that is valid for the vehicle, the RF Hub relays electronic request messages to the BCM over the CAN BUS to invoke the functions or features associated with the request.

Opening a Door

The Door Latches contain Ajar Switches that are hardwired to the BCM. The status of the Door Ajar Switch Sense circuit input is monitored by the BCM, which then sends the proper electronic message to other modules in the vehicle over the CAN Bus.

Turning the Headlights on

The Headlamp switch uses a single resistor multiplexed output to control the many functions and features it provides. The switch receives a clean ground from the BCM on a Headlamp Switch Multiplex (MUX) Return circuit. The BCM then reads the switch outputs using an internal pull up on the Headlamp/Fog Lamp Switch Signal circuit to control the exterior lighting functions

Turning the Hazard Lamps on

The status of the Hazard Switch is continually monitored by the circuitry within the Instrument Panel Switch Bank in the Integrated Center Stack (ICS). The switch receives battery voltage at all times through a Fused Battery Feed circuit, and a path to ground at all times through the Instrument Panel wire harness. Whenever the Hazard Switch is in its latched and lowered position, the hazard warning system is selected and the switch bank circuitry provides a hardwired output to the BCM. When the BCM receives a Hazard Switch input, it then controls hazard warning system operation and flash rate by controlling battery voltage outputs through high side drivers on the Right and Left / Front and Rear Turn Signal Feed circuits.

Honking the Horn
Each Horn has a path to ground at all times through its wire harness connection to an eyelet terminal secured to the body sheet metal. The Horns are controlled by a Fused B(+) output received through a relay within the front Power Distribution Center (PDC) Assembly and controlled by the BCM.

During an ignition cycle, the CAN C Bus network may go into default mode when communication has been hindered with the BCM. In some situations, when this happens the wipers automatically operate in a delay mode and the Headlamps are activated by the BCM. When the ignition is turned off, the vehicle will exit the default mode and operation of the Wipers and Headlamps will stop. When turning the ignition on again, if the CAN C Bus fault is still present, the vehicle will exhibit a no crank, no start condition; and no scan tool communication response to the vehicle.

Possible reasons:

INOPERATIVE SCAN TOOL
MANUALLY SELECTING THE INCORRECT YEAR AND/OR MODEL WITH WITECH 2.0
DATA LINK CONNECTOR (DLC)
DATA LINK CONNECTOR FUSED B (+) CIRCUIT OPEN OR HIGH RESISTANCE
DATA LINK CONNECTOR GROUND CIRCUIT OPEN OR HIGH RESISTANCE
CAN C (+) BUS CIRCUIT OPEN, SHORTED OR HIGH RESISTANCE
CAN C (-) BUS CIRCUIT OPEN, SHORTED OR HIGH RESISTANCE
POOR TERMINAL CONTACT OR CONNECTOR CONNECTION(S)
STAR CONNECTOR
ANY MODULE ON THE CAN C BUS

NORMAL CAN C BUS CIRCUIT VOLTAGE TABLE

CAN C BUS LOW (-) : 1.5 – 2.5 volts
CAN C BUS HIGH (+) : 2.5 – 3.5 volts
Difference Between CAN C BUS (+) and CAN C BUS (-) : 0.5 volt

CAN B or IHS BUS LOW (-) : 1.5 – 2.5 volts
CAN B or IHS BUS HIGH (+) : 2.5 – 3.5 volts
Difference Between CAN B or IHS BUS (+) and CAN B or IHS BUS (-) : 0.5 volt

It prompt “Obtain PCM-code(IMMOBILIZER PCM CODE) for In

This vehicle’s VIN will be required to obtain the password”

Look here: methods to get immo pin code:
1.Inquire dealer to get immo pin code via VIN

2.Disassemble immo box or smart box to read out the pin code by programmer

3.Read out immo pin code by auto key programmer

Read out PIN Code from immo/smart box.

The pin code is stored in the chip located in ECU,immo box,smart box or BCM box,it depend on the vehicle models.You need to remove chip from PCB,then use programmer to read out the pin code,the accuracy up to 99%.This method require you have skillful operations:disassembling,welding,reading out pin code.

Read out PIN code by auto key programmer:

Many devices can calculate the pin code by their programmer,you just need to plug the programmer into OBD socket to get pin code,then programming keys.

Try to disassemble chip to read out pin code when you find the device can not support.

In summary, when you get incorrect PIN code by VIN calculating:

1.Check difference between the appearance VIN and immo system VIN.

If you they are different,the immo system VIN is more reliable.

2.Make sure vehicle models is corresponding to the immo system.(many freshman select incorrect models)

3.Immo system have been locked due to much time incorrect pin code enter(wait for hours or next day,try it again!)

Inquire PIN Code by Dealer or Three-part via VIN.

Because the VIN(Vehicle Identify Number) of each car is unique identification. It will cost you $20~100 depend on your vehicle models, the accuracy rate is more than 95%.The advantage is that you do not need to disassemble any parts on the vehicle.After getting the PIN code, you are available to program keys directly.

Personally, if the problem can be solved by paying a little,you would better to, it will save you much time.

But sometimes, your customers unwilling to spend extra money or you got the incorrect PIN code by VIN, so you need to try other methods.
