In the past: CGDI MB collected data from EIS when W164 2009 +/W221 2009+ All Key lost, it cost about 2 hours. Here a user’s experience, if you had the same experience, you can skip to the next part.
I did it today (EIS on bench)
eis A1645451508 new type
pulling dump took 80 minutes
calculating pass online 4 min.
key programmed !!!
w164 after 2009
I did for testing 2 types of programming _ have got EZS with both programmed keys because customer claimed sometimes EIS works sometimes doesn’t – I have found that connector for immo aerial was desoldered from PCB so when I fixed it – EIS became fully working again – and then I started testing CGDI and made 2 types of programming (all programming on bench – EZS + GATEWAY EMULATOR)
1) programming in case one key is available and adding spare key – ALL OK!
2) programming in case of ALL KEYS LOST – ALL OK!
spare key programming was pretty fast
AKL scenario takes circa 80minutes to get data from EIS and You have to plug in and out emulator key every 5 seconds – I have bought VVDI POWER ADAPTER to pass all hassle on to adapter so You don’t have to watch whole process and move key in and out manually – but it doesn’t work with CGDI – seems adapter works only with VVDI and software drives it by addressed pin to switch connection off and on between ezs and key emulator – maybe CGDI TEAM could write a code to their SW and make VVDI POWER ADAPTER useful for all their customers.
Now, you only need one CGMB AC adapter, the data acquisition time is about 9minutes to 35 minutes.
CGMB AC Adapter advantages:
Collect data via OBD, so the time will be shortened to about 9minutes to 35 minutes.
No need to dismantle the EIS
No need to plug in and out the emulator key every 5 seconds.
