Key learning for all CAS1, CAS2 and CAS3 vehicles, including those with latest ISTA-P updates. If the user has working key for the car and wants to make a spare one, the key learning is a fast and easy process. If all keys are lost and a new one has to be made then the process is more complicated, but all the necessary tools are included in the package.
Tag Programmer. Allows the user to observe, check and modify HiTag2 key data. The user is given hints for the key contents whether the data is consistent and options to correct it(very useful tool when the key is not an original BMW key).
The individual serial number is a mechanism to bind the modules to one specific car and prevent reusing modules from another car. The ISN of the DME is also needed data for key learning when all keys are lost.
- ISN reading from DME. We currently support DMEs for diesel and gasoline E series vehicles as well as DMEs for gasoline F series vehicles. In case of a problem with a specific DME, our team analyzes the problem at hand from the online logs and may add support to that motor computer dynamically on our server. The customer just has to repeat the operation without reinstalling anything. Some specific motor computers like MSV80/MSD80 are more complicated for ISN reading and require flash preprocessing to retrieve its data.
- ISN reading from CAS – supported are both the short 4B ISN (that is used by older motor computers and some automatic gear shaft) as well as the 16byte ISN that is used for authentication with most up to date motor computers.
- Recent CAS3 versions keep the ISNs encrypted in their EEPROM and decrypt it before authentication the the DME. The Abrites software for BMW generation 2 allows the user to encrypt the ISN for these CAS3 versions.
- ISN reading from EGS – reading of the ISN from the Electronic Gear Shaft allows replacement and adaptation of used EGS from one vehicle to another.
- Synchronization status – quick view of the synchronization status between DME and CAS which allows quick troubleshooting of starting problems.
