Using the Launch X431 V (X431 Pro) OBD 2 is bound to save the user from several incompatibility hustles usually seen with some tools. With the addition of the upcoming Indian car models, you can be assured of scanning you cheap cars. Leaving the cost aside, this is a tool worth looking at. However, the skyrocketing cost may not be so nice to an average income earner, go round and choose what may be convenient.

For Indian market LAUNCH company has designed LAUNCH X431 PRO not X431 V. But there are many unauthorized trader in Indian market who is promoting Launch X431 V as a global service support is the most important since with every car manufacturer scanning procedure will change system of the car will change. For any scanner service support is the most important since even though technician has bought most expensive and most advance scanner but if does not know procedure to use it then even the most advance car scanner is of no use.

The using experience of VCM II



I recently had an issue with a Mazda III 1.6HDI 2006 the ECU has lost it’s parameters of PATS System, so i decided to buy a VCMII and installed the IDS Mazda V92.04 in a VmWare in order to repair the car. So i have received my Ford VCM II and though everything will be okay when i will connect to the car.

So i go to the car, connect the VCI it looks starting ok, Windows finds the correct drivers but VCI Manager for Ford-VCM don’t see the VCM 2.I thought there is a little bug with my installation so i install IDS V91 on Windows 7 and then try to detect VCMII. Same problem, i don’t see the VCM in the Manager.

Then i decided to download the latest Bosch drivers for VCMII. First time launch Bosch says i need to update the VCM. Ok i start the Update after about 5 minuts it stucks at FPGA update problem. I don’t care restart the VCM Red/Green and beeps every 1 second. I stopped there and decided to Restore the ford vcm ii diagnostic tool to a V84 Version After multiple downgrade triyng on different Versions of IDS (Always in recovery mode).It doesn’t work on any version from V81 Up to V92. I don’t care so i decided to open it to see if it’s just a bad solder on a small compenent as always.

So i opened it resoldered resistors, capacitors, masses, With air Heating Rework machine heated the Cpu, FPU, FPGA, Ram every connector and it’s always Stuck on Update. (FPGA Update fails and 10%).

What’s Difference Between Tech2 for GM and MDI for GM ?

GM  Tech2 and GM MDI are most commen two devices for GM Diagnose, then what’s the difference between them? Following with us, you fill find the answer :

Tech2 is the most cost-effective one, for it is with reasonable price and covering not only For GM vehicles, but also For SAAB,For OPEL,For SUZUKI,For ISUZU and as well as For Holden.
Besides, it is with authentic For GM software and support on-board diagnostics on all gm systems. If you want to use it to do For GM car programming, you should buy tis2000 software.
One disadvantage is that tech2 remains an basic or essential gm diagnostic tool for vehicles before 2010.
For GM MDI is used to serve vehicles with auxiliary CAN bus that cannot be served by tech2. Actually, this car diagnostic tool is working with vehicles after 2010 and covering newer models than that of Tech2.
Its highlights are with faster reprogramming (increased about 20-70%), serving exclusive new models, and more economical. This is a good investment for future vehicles models.

BMW carsoft V6.5 interface user guide for beginners

I bought BMW CarSoft v6.5 entire kit from China for less than 50USD including the shipping to Ireland. I am driving a BMW 1994 325i Coupe M50B25 Euro left hand drive.


Package including:

BMW 6.5 Interface Unit

BMW OBDI 20 Pin Cable

BMW OBDII 16 Pin Cable

RS-232 Serial (COM) cable

BMW CarSoft v6.5 software CD





Attach the carsoft v6.5 interface to my old Win XP PC with COM port.



If your computer does not have a serial port, a PCMCIA serial card must be used.

A USB to Serial adaptor is not recommended and not supported in Carsoft.

A PCMCIA adaptor card is not included in Carsoft.

Please refer to the installation instructions that come with your PCMCIA Card.


Serial Port RS-232 on the PC/Laptop:


PCA RS-232 card inside:




Well let’s get right to it.


Carsoft v6.5 software was not difficult to install if follow the extremely detail pdf attachment here:


Mount on software image and enter into main menu

Click Perform Diagnosis->Total Diagnose, you will see lots of available tests control modules at once







Erase the fault codes in specific control modules






Click Special Functions tab, you are able to perform some special functions, like Live Data, LCM Reading, Service interval reset etc.





Live DME – Digital Petrol Engine Control Unit:

Viewing parameters: Engine speed (RPM), intake air temperature, air flow, power supply etc.


bmw-carsoft--v6.5-interface-4 bmw-carsoft--v6.5-interface-5 bmw-carsoft--v6.5-interface-6


Live DDE – Digital Diesel Engine Control Unit:

twice more sensors and readings than DME.


Live EGS – Automatic Gear Box Control Unit:





Carsoft 6.5 erase DME code



No tool is perfect. Not all of those functions are available for all BMWs. Everything looks nice and promising, but… The newer BMW you have the more satisfaction you get from diagnose. I have OBDI and I couldn’t enjoy LIVE DATA and some other modules. If your model is 1994 later, it will be fine.


Tips for OBD2 car, if you get every modules not responding or DDE responding and all the other modules not responding.
Here is the solution. With the soldering iron, bridge the pin 7 and 8 (the 2 K-line) together







This will fix this problem on most E39 and E46
Another tip if you get a similar problem using a 20-pin on a 4-cylinder BMW try bridging the pin 17 and 20
BTW, if you have broken your CD like me, never mind, I got the free carsoft software driver
