Thread: Mercedes w212 2011 got “ESC inoperative” message, using MB sd connect C4 Xentry to pull specific codes firstly and go on repairing, at the last paragraph, there are solution.

Car model and year:
mercedes w212 2011

Issue:
the car shows me “esc inoperative” message then the car become very heavy and it doesn’t take acceleration at all where it is stuck to 15-20 km/h..
i went to a technician and he said it is the throttle sensor, so we got it changed and everything worked fine, after two months the same problem occurred and we got the part changed again, but yesterday the problem appeared again !!

Possible reason:
ESC is electronic stability control not sure why the tech was changing out the throttle and/or position sensor.
ESC inoperative is indicating the traction control is not working. This should be able to tracked to a specific wheel sensor issue, electronic module problem or reflash needed etc.Lots of other possibilities too, steering angle sensor, yaw sensor etc.

How to do?
Take it to an MB dealer and get the car scanned. They should be able to give you a specific MB code and you can go from there. Or did the mechanic scan it and come up with some codes? You can also get some aftermarket scanners, but the ones that do MB specific codes are a bit more than regular OBDII scanners which just do engine and emissions codes, not other sub systems. Your esc inoperative is one of those subsystems

These are all the messages and faults I’m getting
As you can see, I get myself a MB SD connect C4 Xentry, These are all the messages and faults I’m getting.


* voltage of signal 1 of accelerator pedal sensor
* voltage of signal 1 of throttle valve actuator
* voltage of signal 2 of throttle valve actuator
all of these are low voltages around 0.5 where it should be a higher voltage…

Solution:
As suggested you pull codes with MB SD C4 DAS if steadfast on circumventing you can try OEM replacements: TVA 1131410125, ESP CU 2129005906, and OS 0035427018.
– M16/6:


– ESP control unit (N30/40) is attached to hydraulic unit, check connection pins before replacing.
– Oxygen sensor 1/bank 2 = left (driver side) front of catalyst




For first time connection of the throttle valve actuator control unit carries out automatically within approx. 60 seconds the following actions:
– determines the emergency running position
– determines lower mechanical stop
– matches the actual value amplifier (signal 1 and 2) in the MESFI [ME] control unit.
– checks the return spring (always takes place when ignition ON) Prerequisite: gear P or N, vehicle stationary, engine OFF, ignition ON, coolant temperature 5 °C to 100 °C and accelerator pedal not operated.
The procedure must be activated with STAR DIAGNOSIS, if the throttle valve actuator or the ME-SFI [ME] control unit was replaced.

How to use Lishi BMW HU58 2 in 1 to pick & decode

Lishi tools 2 in 1 user guide for those keen to learn about the genuine Lishi BMW HU58 2 in 1 picking & over-lifting technique.

With Lishi HU58 2 in 1 lock pick and decoder when you pick the lock , the lock will turn slightly then you can decode the lock, but if you want to just open lock without decoding then pull out 2in1 a little and the lock will turn, if you don’t pull the tool slightly out then lock will not turn, they could not put the cut out on the tool as it is on the key as this would weaken the tool
An overlifter is a key blank cut with a No1 cut in each position yes then you must cut down the shoulders to allow room for complete key and tension wrench in the lock.
when you have made your overlifter key

1) insert tension wrench
2) insert your overlifter key fully so all wafers are lifted
3) apply tension to the tension wrench
4) remove the overlifter key maintaining the turning tension
5) this will hold all wafers in the No 1 height position
6) gently feather your tension removing a tiny bit of tension at a time.
7) you will hear little clicks as wafers fall in turn
8) once tension is fully removed if lock isnt open then start again

The knack is the feathering of the tension , let too much tension off in 1 go and too many wafers will drop , let too little off it takes longer , its just practice to get this rght.

 

Remember when picking the HU58 , the plug will turn 10 degrees once picked and stop , you then need to withdraw pick about 1/2 cm to a little arrow by the Lishi logo, once in line with arrow the plug will fully rotate and open.

There are 3 versions of this lock i’ve seen to date , some have wafers missing in some positions , some have all wafers and some have blocked No 9 position .

As has been said overlifting is a much quicker opening on these using a key cut to a No 1 height and the shoulders cut back , a good tension wrench and a little practice on correct feather tension yeilds instant results , same with mercedes HU64 overlift a dream.

Remember with BMW Auto Locksmith Tool boots these pick anti clockwise to open , if you pick clockwise which is easier , hold the plug half way between verticle and horizontal then spin anti clockwise , as if you fully turn from vertical to horizontal you will apply the deadlock.
if the BMW plug on boot is vertical its not deadlocked and will open on central locking or will need picking anti clockwise once , if the plug is horizontal then its deadlocked and needs picking twice or spinning when half way between horizontal and vertical.

 

Here, attach some photos of how to use LISHI Lock Pick (HU58) for old BMW

 lonsdor-k518ise-key-programmer-volvo-xc60-smart-key-01

Step 1: Read the security data of the CEM module

Volvo’s CEM are located under the co-pilot airbag on the left, remove the debris box

lonsdor-k518ise-key-programmer-volvo-xc60-smart-key-02

Read CEM data with RN-01 board:

Plug K518ISE host, adapter, and RN-01 board:

Note: the new/old CEM box looks the same, but with different circuits.

For the old version of the CEM box:

when opening the lid, in the back of the circuit board, please pay attention to the black column with blue circles, which are the four positioning points that need to match stably with the white column of RN-01 board.

Note: The circuit board is coated with insulating glue, it is required to use the washing plate water to wash off the blue area of the insulation coating in the contact point (solder joint) , or power can not go through , if the needle of RN-01 board is broken, it will do to wire in the corresponding locations.

For the new version of the CEM box:

the circuit is different, which requires to wire to read the anti-theft data

the wiring diagram

Connect power to read the data

Separate RN-01 board to the motherboard to prevent it from conduction

Welding cable shouldn’t be more than 15cm

Step 2: Read the security data of the KVM module

Volvo’s KVM modules are located after the rear box, in the upside of the right rear wheel position (for 16 S60L car, dismantle from the right rear door to the wheel direction);

lonsdor-k518ise-key-programmer-volvo-xc60-smart-key-14

The most important note:

To failures in Volvo KVM data reading (coz the chip model is different), please do as follows:

① Use programmer to read out the data (.bin file);

② Contact and send the EEPROM data to K518ISE after-sales service, the engineers will convert the data into a dedicated file;

③  Connect K518ISE with computer and put the dedicated file into “file —> feature_35” folder;

④ Following the operations to select the KVM data from the process.

 

Step 3: Program smart keys via OBD

Refer to the following notes:

  1. For 6 keys, duringoperation, you need to firstly insert the keyinto the key slot and then operate by following the directions.
  2. For key recognition failure, please make sure the smart keyis not locked, aslocked key cannot be programmed, the fresh new key generally will not be locked.
  3. K518ISE has identification& unlock functions, which will test and identify whether a key is an unused one or not. If the remote control is invalid after the key is programmed (on condition that the battery is well installed and the remote control frequency is correct), try to import the CEM security data to unlock the key and then program again.

Note: Only the key of this car or corresponding car can be unlock after reading the CEM security data.

4,When installing Volvo battery, please note that the two batteries are placed in an overlap way and separated by a white paper in the middle, so please do not just replace the above one.

Dismantling is very simple also , just remove the metal key, and gently pry with a not so sharp knife in the same place where the metal key lies.

Done!

Lexia 3 Diagbox starts in a small windows (solved)

I’ll chip in some words of problems and solutions of my Diagbox software for Lexia 3 diagnostic. It starts in a small window on a freshly installed windows 7 32 bit in virtualbox.

installed the Virtualbox Guest Additions…not worked

changed screen resolution…not helped also

Finally solved!

Fresh installed Diagbox software on Windows XP.

The video i followed:

It did work good on Windows XP. I guess the installation is broken.

Another solution might help:

You can position and resize Lexia on the screen to your liking by navigation to:
C:\APP\LEXIA\EXE\ and finding the file: “ecran.ini”.. open it using notepad and under:
[GENERAL]
position_X =0
position_Y =0
largeur_ecran = 1024
hauteur_ecran = 748

I think it is self explanatory, the X and Y affect positioning on the screen (from top left), and the ones I cant read are the Width and Height in pixels…; Try position_X =200 and position_Y=100, largeur_ecran = 800 and hauteur_ecran = 600
