Renault CAN Clip V168 software is successfully tested 100% working with Chinese Renault can clip diagnostic interface including the Most well-received one ($95) and best quality with AN2131QC Chip $139. (Not tried the genuine Renault clip diagnostic interfaces.)
I installed today on my second portable self-diagnostic software, both xpsp3, no worries, first laptop I did yesterday diagnosed Sandero stepway II only CAN lines without line k, all ok, today for A Logan I on line k without CAN, also ok.
I confirm v168 works perfect CAN line from OBD2TOOL or k no worries! < But of course as I already said, portables on OS xpsp3 >
CLIP V168 Test Report (Confirmed)
1. Renault can clip diagnostics…(confirmed)
2. Renault can clip reprogramming(confirmed)
Clip will tell you if there is a new version to install, depending on what version of renault reprog you have… if you do not have reprog, the only way to find out if there is a new version, is to with a Professional Diagnostic Tool read the actual version installed. As for the benefits, new versions are usually released to resolve glitches that have been in the mean time discovered, to improve driveability, fuel consumption etc… also as the engines get worn and old, new software can adjust things to make is driveability a bit better… most of the times you will not see any difference after a software update, unless a real obviously glitch has been identified and a new version has been released to resolve it. I hope all the above makes some sense, and some how answers your question…
3. Renault can clip key programming& ECU programming (No luck)
The Renault-COM diagnostic programming tool is tested working to perform key programming and ECU programming.
