How to solve VAS5054A ODIS 4.3.3 Error ODS9004E

Run program as ADMIN!
You DON’T need a username and password… but you must point the program to a valid and correct path to your locally stored database.


Check in Program Files\ODIS Service xyz\log for ENGINE.LOG
Might Program Files x86, use brain to locate file

Check if green file exists….

Your path could be too long, so change to short path like C:\PostSetup\ODIS\Trade-Retail with correct folder structure!


Then try a copy of these two main files odis.main.service_51.0.10.jar and 51.0.20:

And also install 540 fine and 550 is only a small update mainly Bentley


Seems the local copy of odis.main.service_51.0.10.jar was good, now it upacks ok

Kess V2 OBD writes edc17cp44: Success!

Car & ECU: EDC17CP44 Q7 / Touareg via OBD

Review: i have done edc17cp44 obd many times with kess

it is a virtual read need to have alientech databank access.

Btw, ktag readout also can be written with kess but have not tried it yet


Ktag reads edc17cp44: Success!

Car & ECU: Audi year 2011 edc17cp44

Review: I can read an Audi year 2011 edc17cp44 with ktag 6.070


FgTech eu clone reads edc17cp44: Success!

Car & ECU: VW Touareg 3.0tdi ecu edc17cp44

Review: I have been able to read it with fgtech euro clone in bootmode


MPPS cable OBD reads edc17cp44: Failed!

Car & ECU: Touareg II 4.2TDI edc17cp44

Review: I have done both ecu master and ecu slave boot read, than unlocked read files and flashed them back in boot mode.

When i do TPROT check it states that ecu is unlocked.

But when try OBD read, MPPS is reading ECU and when it comes to 100% i get message “This file is corrupt. Please make a boot read”




it’s safer to do all boot mode

Please have full backups in case anything goes wrong.

Xprog V5.8.5 Reads Ranger Rover KVM MC9S12XEQ384

Test report: Xprog box running the latest software version 5.8 is able to Read MCU 9S12 XEQ 384 from a Range Rover 2015-2016.
Save P-FLASH and D-FLASH unlock KVM secured.
Now, i’ll show you the location of a KVM module
And remove the module with secured MCU9S12XEQ
Read on bench with Xprog HQ clone or original
Then will save P-FLASH and D-FLASH unlock KVM secured
Here you go.
The module location inside Range Rover 2015-2016
The Xprog m ecu programmer
The KVM board
Secured MCU 9S12 XEQ
Pin 42 and 46
Lift 1 pins shown in the photo
Maximum wires length 12cm
Secured MCU 9S12 XEQ 384
MCU/MPU, Freescale NXP 9S12XE, MC9S12XEQ384 D-FLASH-Secured
Tip & Guide: How to get Xprog to work with secured MCU:
Reset MCU security
Run->change security state->reset MCU security
Wait 10…15 seconds if not success, cancel process
Check connection
Start from a
Remember MCU security byte value
Read, write…commands can be executed many times
Set MCU security
Run->change security sate->set MCU security
Reset MCU security
It will take 10 to 12 seconds to unlock MCU
IP NOT STOP and repeat
Save data
MCU/MPU, Freescale NXP 9S12XE, MC9S12XEQ384 P-FLASH-Secured
Save data
Job’s done!
Now you can upload the data and generate new key file with key programmers, i.e VVDI2 v5.6.0 above or Mart Tool. Then write data back to KVM.

How to read MB91F06X with Carprog and A10 adapter (Pinout)

Here are pinouts and guides of read instrument cluster MB91F06X (MB91F060, MB91F060BSMB91F061, MB91F061BSMB91F062, MB91F062BSMB91F067, MB91F067BS). Done with Carprog and A10 adapter.
FYI, what is instrument cluster in a car?
In an automobile, an electronic instrument cluster, digital instrument panel or digital dash for short, is a set of instrumentation, including the speedometer, that is displayed with a digital readout rather than with the traditional analog gauges. Many refer to it simply as a digital speedometer.
This is the microcontroller Fujitsu MB91F061:
Data flash 64k read / write works with microcontrollers MB91F06X :
  • MB91F060, MB91F060BS– tested on Honda Fit, Jazz, HRV Hybrid 2015+: data flash read/write, odometer repair;;
  • MB91F061, MB91F061BS– tested on Honda Fit, Jazz, HRV 2015+, Kia Picanto 2015+, Kia Carens 2015+: data flash read/write, odometer repair;
  • MB91F062, MB91F062BS– tested on Hyundai i30, i40 2015: data flash read/write, odometer repair;
  • MB91F067, MB91F067BS– not tested;
These microcontrollers you can find in latest 2015+ Denso instrument clusters:  Honda FIT, JAZZ 2014 (MB91F061),  Kia Picanto, Carnival 2015+ (MB91F061),  Kia Sorento, Sonata (MB91F067), Hyundai I30, I40 2015+ (MB91F062), Daihatsu Move MB91F058.
Cheaper way to read this microcontroller:
Have a working Carprog (original or cheap clone but of good quality)
and a decent A10 adapter
Carprog and MB91F06X schema…. Here you go.
