How Far the Distance of Xhorse Smart Remote Key?

Today I’m gonna try how far is the distance of these remote fob lock alarms: an OEM key, other aftermarket key & Xhorse Universal Remote. This is taking a 2005 Honda Pilot as test.

 

As you can see, all remotes can work while I’m close to the vehicle. So I’m gonna go as far as I can.

Can I Write BMW EWS3 EWS4 Key with Xhorse Super Chip?

Question: Is it possible to use an xhorse vvdi super chip to start an ews3+ bmw x3 or ews4?

 

 

Answer: You can use the super chip to generate all keys lost EWS3 and EWS4 no problem. But no clone (add key).

You just need to preload the chip first then just add key file.

Some people configure the super chip to an ID44 new 7935 to write the chip. It needs luck. A few started and a few did not.

Configure the Super Chip to an ID44 New 7935, if it’s id44 pcf7935, then generate one from xt27 and program it into ews.
super chip id44
Working experience:
1).
Not trying to clone it. I’ve read the ews3+ chip and generated key. First set transponder type as 7935 then make dealer key from dump to position 1. If I select vvdi super chip it says clone start not supported in position so i select 7935 and it makes dealer key but my dump is not modified to write back to chip in ews module so says empty position. Car won’t crank.
2)
Vvdi prog, vvdi2, super chip no problem. I generate once id44 (7935) with super chip and worked just fine.
3).  Ews4 didn’t start for me.
4)

 

Generate id33 vw. Super chip WV id33 will always work, no problems.
If failed, use real 7935 and the original 7935 poof immediately works.

Its ID has been changed.

 

Most ID47 keys can start vehicle directly after successful modification. Then its remote can be separately programmed by OBD. In this way, locksmiths can save much cost than usual. If key ID does not support this way, just use password reading method for key programming.

Can Xhorse VVDI2 Read MQB Virtual Cockpit Immo Data?

 Problem:

Hi i try add key to Tiguan 2019, MQB with  xhorse vvdi2 vag. But it’s something wrong. Not reading immobilizer data (virtual cockpit). VVDI device message ‘this dashboard is not compatible with the one you selected’.

 

Xhorse VVDI2 Cannot Read MQB VC Immo Data 1
Xhorse VVDI2 Cannot Read MQB VC Immo Data 2

 

Solution:

Impossible to read Virtual Cockpit with xhorse, autel and all other tools!

All keys lost not possible, just add key by sync data from third party.

You only can’t do the job without someone offering a sync file service if it’s JC or virtual cockpit. If you have vvdi2, you can obtain data with working key.

All keys lost only by Odis online.

Dealer key – ODIS – Service Immobiliser
Now you can read immo data and make additional keys with the exception of JC and VC.

Xhorse VVDI BIMTool Pro Tested Working with CAS Plug

Xhorse VVDI2 has been long been tested with no issue with the xhorse CAS plug adapter (check previous post). Now the Xhorse VVDIM BIMTool Pro has confirmed working too.

After the recent software and firmware updates you can now connect directly to a cas2 cas3 cas3+ cas3++ cas3+ istap directly without the need for the junction box. This allows you to read isn on bench, add key, downgrade istap and a few other functions. Make sure you are on current software and CAS plug from xhorse.

The released the CAS plug as being able to correct connect directly to a CAS without a JBE module so you can do bench testing or mrp downloads on the bench downgrades with the CAS plug

This is the pinout required for a vvdi bim tool to cas plug to work
they will work both vvdi2 and vvdi bimtool CAS1 CAS3 CAS2 CAS3+ CAS++
it will do pretty much all the CAS modules apart from CAS4 in the vvdi hardware range

You do need 12 volt source.

You get a 12 v plug plugged straight into the car’s plug here that is then connected into the VVDI BIM Tool in this case.
You can see we get a little green light to say the bim tool is connected actually that green light comes on when you do power it up.

Now it connects to CAS system.

Insert key into ignition and we can get key info.

Start security login, you can see it is CAS3+.

You can delete key, add key once it is connected.
