MB Star Diagnosis Coding Out ABC on Mercedes R230 Cars

MB STAR Diagnostic Tools software can code out ABC, here is the example on code out Mercedes SL65.
NOTE : the instruction here only for R230s (not any W215, W216, W220, W221)

To do this, you need a MB Star diagnostic SD Connect C4 with Developer mode. Hook up SD Connect diagnostic system to your car and when it reads your car, select Control Units, pick Information and Communication and you will see ICM :


After ICM, you will see Control Unit Adaptions :


From there, choose the year of your model :

From there, select Special Equipment


Select ABC :


Then go to the drop down tab and change it from PRESENT to NOT PRESENT, and click F3.
After that, turn off the car, with the doors closed.
Wait 1-2 mins and start the car back up (no more ABC codes and no white or red lights).

How to install SD Connect C4 WiFi on Windows 10

Have good success with MB SD Connect C4 windows 10.

I’m running Win10 on a Dell XPS15 9550 laptop with Intel AC 8260 internal wireless card installed.

After days of investigation and testing, the most important thing to understand is this. The drivers for your wireless card MUST support AdHoc functionality. The Benz diagnostic tools are the secret sauce that makes this possible. This can be verified at the DOS command prompt. The command is: netsh wlan show drivers
This command will show “Yes” or “No” on the line for “Hosted Network Support”.
If this line says “No”, AdHoc will not work properly.

Although I’m running Win10, Intel has drivers for the 8260 wireless card for Win8 which will enable proper AdHoc functionally.

The trick is to download the driver first, prior to removing your existing wireless driver. Download the driver ONLY, not any driver file with additional driver management apps included in the downloaded file.

Now you can go into Device Manager and remove your existing wireless card AND check the box that removes all software associated with it. My Win8 driver download file was a .exe file. I double clicked on it and the Win8 driver for my Intel 8260 card was installed. Went to Device Manager, right clicked on my 8260 wireless card and selected Properties. Clicked on Advanced and was able to see several AdHoc related entries. These AdHoc entries were not visible using the Win10 drivers.

AdHoc can now be verified at the DOS command prompt. The command is:
netsh wlan show drivers
This command will show “Yes” on the line for “Hosted Network Support”.
If this line says “No”, AdHoc will not work properly

With AdHoc functionality confirmed, additional DOS commands can now be used to enable Road24h wireless connectivity. The procedures for the additional steps required are well documented in OBD2TOOL or GOOGLE.

This is what worked for me. Depending on your computer skills, your results may vary.

If you find my posting to be of help to you, Thanks and Rep would be most appreciated.

Happy motoring !

AEV ProCal Module Manual_reviews – 2

AEV ProCal Module
Throttle Tolerance Programming Mode
Description: This mode allows the user to program throttle tolerance and effectively pair a PCM and pedal. When a new PCM or pedal has been installed, the previous values stored in the PCM may not match the specific tolerance of the pedal and need to be reprogrammed.

Notes: This mode requires simultaneous inputs from a user on the throttle pedal as well as the multifunction light stalk. When programming, follow the steps in a deliberate, but not rushed, manner.

The entire process should take approximately 3-4 seconds. If the process is completed either too fast or too slow, the pairing will fail.

Procedure: Consult the Quick Reference Guide and set the DIP switches accordingly. With the engine off and ignition on, plug the module into the OBD port and follow the steps below:
1. When the module is ready, the Professional Diagnostic Tools Electronic Throttle (ETC) Indicator (a lightning bolt surrounded by two vertical lines) will flash on the dash.
2. To start the pedal routine, pull the headlight stalk back into the “Highbeam Flash” position, then release the headlight stalk allowing it to fall back into the “Highbeam Off” position. The routine has now started.
3. Press and hold the pedal all the way to the floor.
4. Move the headlight stalk forward to the “Highbeam On” position.
5. Release the pedal completely.
6. Move the headlight stalk back to the ”Highbeam Off” position.
7. The routine is now completed.
8. Turn the ignition Off, wait, then start the engine. Test the pedal and verify that it is functioning properly. If not, repeat steps 2-8.

New Powertrain Control Module (PCM) Setup Mode Description: This mode allows the user to program the vehicle’s VIN number into a new Powertrain Control Module (PCM). When installing an AEV HEMI BuildersKit with a new PCM, the new module will need to be initialized and paired with the vehicle’s VIN in order for it to properly function.

Notes: After setting the ProCal module’s DIP switches to this mode, no further input is required from the user. The module will determine the vehicle’s VIN and initialize the new PCM accordingly. After programming, the vehicle will need to be key cycled Off, then On.

Without initializing a new PCM, the vehicle’s theft system will prevent the vehicle from running and possibly prevent the engine from cranking.

This mode is only for new PCMs, such as those included in AEV HEMI Builders Kit. If the process is run again the AEV ProCal will report a successful programming (two honks), this is to confirm a proper initialization.

Procedure: Consult the Quick Reference Guide and set the DIP switches accordingly. With the engine off and ignition on, plug the module into the OBD port and wait for the horn to sound. If the horn does not sound, consult the troubleshooting section of these instructions.

Clear Diagnostic Trouble Codes Mode
Description: This mode allows the user to turn off the Check Engine Light on the vehicle’s dash. Notes: This function will clear any codes stored in the PCM and TIPM modules. In most cases this will turn off the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp) / Check Engine Light on the dash, provided there are no active problems in any of the engine systems. Depending on Active and Stored DTC codes that exist in certain vehicle modules, the AEV ProCal may not honk the horn after successful clearing of DTC codes, this is normal.

Procedure: Consult the Quick Reference Guide and set the DIP switches accordingly. With the engine off and ignition on, plug the module into the OBD port and wait for the horn to sound. If the horn does not sound, consult the troubleshooting section of these instructions.

Extended Idle Mode
Feature Description: This mode allows the user to set the vehicle’s idle speed at a higher level than the stock level (up to 2000 rpm). The newer engine systems found in the latest Chrysler cars idle at a lower speed then previous generation vehicles. These lower idle speeds combined with an electronically sensitive vehicle network can create issues for power intensive tools such as winches and on-board welders.

Notes: To prevent the vehicle from going into a lower power mode or presenting the user with a low power error lamp, the AEV ProCal should only be used while winching, using an on-board welder, or for other power intensive tools.

This feature has a 10 minute timeout. The engine can safely be turned off at any time.

Procedure: Consult the Quick Reference Guide and set the DIP switches accordingly. With the engine on and running, plug the module into the OBD port and engage the e-brake. Use the overhead light dimmer on the multifunction stalk to set the vehicle’s idle speed. To turn the feature off, check to ensure that the vehicle is in park or neutral, press the brakes firmly, and then release the e-brake. The idle should slowly return to its stock level.

Steering Wheel Centering Mode
Description: The ESP system present on all newer Chrysler vehicles utilizes a digital sensor pack in the steering wheel to determine exactly where the user wants the vehicle to go. Disconnecting the steering, or replacing any of the related components (tie rod, front axle etc) can cause this module to become out of correlation with the wheels. To center the wheels with the steering system, the AEV ProCal can indicate to the user exactly where zero is on the internal sensor.

By enabling the Steering Center mode, the ProCal module determines where the steering wheel is and lights up a corresponding turn signal lamp and turn signal indicator. If the wheel is too far to the right, the right indicator will light. If the wheel is too far to the left, the left indicator will light. If the steering wheel is stopped exactly dead center, the highbeam indicator and both turn signal lamps will light.

Notes: This is a feature normally found in the dealer diagnostic tool. The ProCal module will allow the user to perform a proper alignment without having to use the dealer diagnostic tool.

The only way to exactly correlate the wheels with the steering wheel is to complete the process on an alignment rack.

If the function is not terminated properly the lights/indicators may remain stuck on or off. Be sure to exit the mode properly by enabling either turn signal before removing the module. If a clean exit does not occur, plug the module back in, enable the turn signals, and then remove the module. This can also be reset by removing and reconnecting the Positive (+) battery terminal.

Procedure: Consult the Quick Reference Guide and set the DIP switches accordingly. With the ignition on and engine off, plug the module into the OBD port. Use the indications to center the wheel. To exit the mode, activate either the right or left turn signal, and then remove the module.

On occasion, the ProCal module may be unable to complete a desired request for a variety of reasons,including network errors, an invalid DIP switch setting, or a prohibited request. For example, if a user tries to set a TPMS low pressure threshold on a 2007 JK Wrangler, the module will abort and present an error code because the 2007 JK Wrangler does not have TPMS.

When in an error state, the ProCal module will flash a sequence on the dashboard of the vehicle, usually on the vehicle’s theft system indicator (this is most commonly a red LED in the cluster). This is a two stage display, where a sequence is flashed once, followed by a short pause, then another sequence, and finally a longer pause and the code will repeat. Simply count the two sequences and refer to the list below. For example, if using an improper DIP switch combination the user may see 6 flashes followed by a short pause, and then 4 more flashes.
