How to use Nexiq with John Deere Service Advisor software

Hi, I have two scanner, John Deere EDL v2 and NEXIQ USB Link. EDL connection with service advisor is perfect. But with usb link, it doesn’t work. The only way where i have connection with usb link is in GetEcuId.

But finally I got Nexiq usb link to work with Service Advisor software

Here is how to operate…

First, you must reflash your Nexiq with John Deere EDL firmware. When you do that, you\ll got EDL as connected device in device manager.

Find original firmware and save it (backup)
C:\NEXIQ\RP1210A\usblink.bin
In John Deere Service Advisor find EDL.bin
I do not remember where it location …
Copy and rename EDL.bin to usblink.bin
replace original C:\NEXIQ\RP1210A\usblink.bin
Go to C:\NEXIQ\Test
open binload.exe
check checkbox – Enable automatic USB-Link firmware update
open CommCheck.exe
firmware will be update
and Nexiq name will be changed – now EDL-Link

Please take a note, that firmware reflash is possible only with original nexiq or HQ nexiq clone, LQ clones can’t be reflashed, even with newer nexiq firmware

It depends on what clone you have, my clone get all updates,works with OBD volvo,and have no issue.

Second, you must modify standard Heavy Duty Scanner Nexiq 9 pin deutsch cable. just simply revert positions of CAN lines. There is two pairs of CAN lines. Here is instruction and picture how to do that here

A lot useful features of MS906

I am more than impressed with what this little tool can do for the price. I was able to do variant coding on a W212 Mercedes, Airmatic calibration and it still had a lot of other useful features( it was able to access all of the 46 modules installed on the Merc).

4-1

I also used it on a BMW, Toyota Sienna and a Ford Ranger truck and it was able to access all of the modules there as well, perform live tests, actuations, adaptations ( I saw the option to perform shift adaptations on the Mercedes but I haven’t tried it yet) and resetting to default values where applicable.
One cool thing I like about it is the ability to perform graphing ( to a limited extent – not oscilloscope detail but still on par with equivalent but more expensive Autel Scan Tool on the market like SnapOn or Matco).

The not so great parts would be the other, non diagnostic related functions like:
1) Email sharing of the diagnostic files ( they have an embedded app but it doesn’t work with yahoo or gmail servers – I got around it by downloading the yahoo app and using that one to send files to my computer)
2)The tutorial section ( it’s pretty much non existent and for the most part doesn’t even connect to the Autel servers)
3) The complete lack of wiring diagrams and any sort of schematics.

Overall this MaxiSYS MS906 is a great tool to have around for working on your car, pre purchase inspections and helping out friends. It’s biggest plus in my opinion is it’s price, none of the competitors can even get close to it price wise.

Keep in mind that you have to update frequently to be able to work with modules in newer vehicles. Out of the box it has a 1 year free subscription included, after that if you want to update it you have to pay around 600$ per year at Obd2tool.com.

GM Tech2 clone Automated Bleed 2006 C6 Feedback

I just checked my Tech II clone against my 2006 C6. In the ABS section there is an “Automated Bleed” option. In the Radio section there is a “VIN Relearn” option. I’ve never actually used either one, but I bet they work.

The clones are literally running the same software as the Tech II, so they have all the same functions. There are a few caveats: the standard clone power supply will cause the unit to reset if you run the starter motor, apparently, though this can be fixed. Also, operating while tethered to a PC involves a bunch of licensing hacks and other nonsense. But you only need to do that if you want to flash the ECU firmware.

The OBD II Scanner Tech II lets you see (and individually reset) all the DTCs from all the modules. It also has a bunch of special functions and bidirectional capabilities.

It’s great as a standalone diagnostics tool but it isn’t intended to modify ECU parameters like tuning software does. This is a tool for fixing the car, not modifying it.

How to Program Your Honda Remote in 9 Easy Steps

21-1

If you’ve recently bought a keyless remote entry fob for your Honda or the battery died in your existing remote, programming it is quick and easy.  There’s no need to take the remote to a dealership for programming, simply follow these 9 simple steps.
A Step by Step Guide for Programming Your Honda Remotes

Step 1:  Gather all the Auto Key Programmer.  You only need one remote to access program mode, but all remotes must be programmed during the same session.  Your Honda will “forget” any remote previously programmed.

Step 2:  Sit in the vehicle with all the doors closed and unlocked.

Step 3:  Turn the key to the ON position, one click before starting the ignition.  The lights on the accessories should come on and the dash will light up.

Step 4:  Within 5 second of turning the key to the ON position, press the LOCK button on your remote control transmitter for one second.

Step 5:  Turn the key to the OFF position.

Step 6:  Repeat Steps 4 & 5 two more times for a total of three ON/OFF cycles.  Each step must be done within 5 seconds of the previous step.

Step 7:  Turn the key back to the ON position (this will be your fourth turn of the key), press the “LOCK” button on your remote.  The Honda Key Programmer locks on your Honda will make a clunk noise exactly as they do when locking.  You doors have not locked.  This noise indicates your Honda is now in Remote Programming Mode.  Do not turn the key off.

Step 8:  If you would like to program more than one remote, press the LOCK button on each additional remote for 1 second.  As with all other steps, you have 5 seconds to complete this step.  Programming Mode will be activate for a total of 10 seconds.  Only 3 remotes can be programmed to each Honda.

Your locks will make the clunking noise (as though the doors have locked) after each remote is programmed to indicate they have been successfully stored in the system’s memory.

Step 9:  Turn the key to the OFF position and remove it from the ignition.  Test all of your remotes to ensure they have been successfully programmed.

Remember that your remote will not work if the key is in the ignition.  If you’ve lost your keyless entry remote, it’s a good idea to reprogram your Honda remote to protect your vehicle from theft.
