How to update Lexia 3 version B to version C

I bought my Lexia interface clone from ( full chip with S/N 963830 C ) I tested as it is before reflash it with Mr. NLC and in some cars that I know 100% that a “B” clone didn’t worked before this “C” clone didn’t worked too.
Then I tested it again in same cars after I flashed with Mr. NLC And all worked 100%

Here is what I did:

Open the “” with a HEX Editor and read what Mr. NLC wrote in it.
I use my tool from time to time but what I wanna tell you is that when I bought my clone from china ( full chip with S/N 963830 C ) I tested as it is before reflash it with Mr. NLC and in some cars that I know 100% that a “B” clone didn’t worked before this “C” clone didn’t worked too.
Then I tested it again in same cars after I flashed with Mr. NLC
And all worked 100%
I took my clone for a long now so I do not remember when I did this tests but if I remmebr well was in May 2013
This are my tests that I did. What will be we will see. Conclusions are yours

If you wanna play you can edit the serial in the But take care.

Tip you might need:

For those have tried to update the firmware from B to C with the file i’ve been downloading from WP74, but it makes no difference in working, and you can’t access the C CAN bus:

The solution is: Just buy a standard 10K Ohms 1/4 watt resistor and solder it between the two terminals, similar to the form shown in the snapshot*.

Nissan Consult 3 Plus Programming Reviews: Cheapest way FOUND!

Nissan Consult 3 Plus programming reviews:

I looks like it’s a remote system using a bluetooth and is good up to 5 meters away. It also looks like it only works for OBD2…1996 and newer.

The Nissan Consult three Plus does not support the Q45’s made from 1990-1996 YET. I hope that changes soon.

I have an Infiniti G37 (2011). I used Nissan Consult III Plus to enter the pin and start programming new Key Fobs.

I was able to clear the existing keys , but am not able to program the new Fob(s).

The cheapest way to program Nissan:

No need a smart card!

I managed to do Immo and programming without spending out on the smart card.
find the consult diagnostictool.ini file
open with notepad
copy and paste this at the bottom




Here is the location of fille DIAGNOSTICTOOL.INI:


Please just try this at your own risk, I am not responsible the result if you have any question.

I share this because you can do this without spending money to buy the security card.

The best way to program Nissan:

If you can’t solve this problem, better buy a smart card for IMMO and PROGRAMMING.

Connect Consult 3 plus to the computer and the vehicle: Nissan Altima year 2006

Connection method: via the USB cable or Bluetooth

Insert key into the key hole, turn ignition ON with engine OFF

Start Consult-III plus software

Click on “Connect” button on VIMI selection screen to connect with VI


the computer and vehicle establish good communication

then Consult3 plus software will display VIN info

Choose Nissan model and year, and confirm vehicle information

Wait until the Nissan Consult module to access all control modules, Engine, BCM, Transmission, Airbag etc.

The car dashboard will illuminate and the indicator lights on Consult 3 will flash


Diagnostic: Direct Diagnostic Mode program

Tick Key programming icon (NATS SELECT DIAG MODE) on the left menu, plug the security card and press START

(There are two options under NATS SELECT DIAG MODE. Select C/U INITIALIZATION.


Push START BUTTON after enter password

Manually enter the pin code

Piwis 2 Software For Porsche Free Download & Installation Guide

Piwis 2 software works with Piwis Tester II hardware and support diagnose / programming. CnAutotool would like to share software free download link and installation guide here.

Piwis 2 Software Overview:

Software Version: V18.150.500

Compatible Hardware: Piwis Tester II

Operating System: Windows XP

Update Method: By HDD, cannot update online

Support Languages: Russian, English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Dutch.

Piwis 2 Software Functions:

Read/clear error code.
Catch data stream.
Computer programming match.
Component test.
Maintenance information consult.
Components site drawing, Wiring diagram.


getaibose made some modifications:

Win XP tweaks. (enable right click on taskbar, enabled win xp start menu etc.)
Win XP activated. (no more 3 days left to activate errors.)
Uninstalled all Panasonic drivers and other drivers not critical to the system.
Deleted un-necessary files.
Windows XP fully updated from Windows Update.
Uninstalled POSES and PET. (to make download smaller, can re-install them if you wish – refer folder “Hardlock fix for installing PET and POSES”.)
changed adobe reader from German to English.
Updated WinRAR.
100% defragmented image.
Made into universal image. (can restore to VM or any laptop compatible with Windows XP.)
Restored Size ~ 17.9 GB. (this is excluding pagefile storage.)

Note: Even though the PIWIS version is shown as V18.150.500, this might only be a 18.100 as some experts have debunked the existance of V18.150.500 and stated that in this image simply registry edited to display the version as V18.150.500 (refer file “18.150.500 is fake”)

Porsche Piwis II Universal Image Installation Guide:

If you are restoring the Piwis image to a laptop, use software like RUFUS to make the restore program ISO file to a bootable USB thumb drive.

Or if it’s to a virtual machine, then just simply mount the ISO on the virtual machine.


If the screen gets stuck at this command prompt, then just simply close the prompt.

Click restore and then click the path button. Select the backup file(adi.file) and then click on next.

Porsche - Piwis - Universal - Image - Installation - Guide - VXDAS - 3

The program detects the selected backup is a system image, would you like to do a system restore?

Click “Yes” here.


Make sure this box is checked.

Select the drive into which you want to restore the image and then click next.


Make sure that the “enable universal restore” box is checked, so that the system can boot on your laptop.

If you are restoring the image to a virtual machine, you can leave this option unchecked.


Make sure that on unallocated space remains at the end of the partition.

Next, click “OK” and then click “Start Restore”.

After restoring and booting into the system, install drivers and imprint the texter with the method of your choosing. Turbofans method can be found in the following folder.


Restore Porsche Piwis II Universal Image to VM:

1.Create two virtual hard drives – lets say – VHD-A and VHD-B; VHD-A will be the main VHD of your VM into which you are restoring the image.
VHD-B is just a temporary VHD to hold the image file for restore.
2. Copy the image file (.adi file) into VHD-B.
3. Attach both VHD-A and VHD-B to the VM.
4. In the VMs CD drive, mount the recovery disc iso.
5. Start the VM and boot into the recovery CD.
6. Follow the instructions given in the archive to restore the image.
7. After image finish restoring, turn off the VM and detach VHD-B and unmount the recovery disc iso from the VM.
8. Start the VM – after it finish initializing, then install guest additions.
9. Done – you can delete VHD-B from your system.

Theoretically this image should be able to restore and boot into any laptop which supports Windows XP (hopefully no BSOD on booting). Also you can restore it to a Virtual Machine.

My aim with this image was to create an PIWIS image that anyone can restore and use without any difficulty.

This image might be more suited to someone restoring it to a laptop other than a Panasonic CF-30 as I have removed all the Panasonic drivers. You can restore it to a CF-30, just need to reinstall / restore all the drivers.

Easiest method to re-install drivers – In the laptop you are planning to restore the image -> If you are already running Win XP in that laptop, use software called “Double Driver” to backup all the drivers. After restoring the PIWIS image, then restore the drivers – hardly take 5-10 min for complete driver restore and it’s all one-click operation.

Piwis 3 Compare With Piwis Tester 2

As the VXDIAG Porsche PIWIS 3 for Porsche diagnostic & programming released, most client inquiry for the Piwis 3 to replace Piwis tester ii for Porsche new models. Some client asks what’s the difference between Piwis Tester II & Piwis 3. whether the Piwis II work with the Piwis 3 software? Below share one client opinion for this.
Purchase Piwis 2 or Piwis 3?


It may be an interesting subject, I’m sure there is some information about this out here.

First of all, the Piwis 2 interface is a lot more robust piece of equipment, compared to the cheesy and flimsy looking and feeling interface produced by Actia for Piwis 3.

Originally designed for the VW ODIS system, the VAS6154 VCI is quite the service needy piece. [Breaks easily] not a hard comparison to make.
Is it worth to purchase Piwis 3 replace Piwis 2 now? Can the Porsche Piwis 2 compatible with Piwis 3 Software?

This answer for the question of whether Piwis 3 software can work with Piwis II Samtec HSX Interface from

Secondly, I thought the Piwis 3 for Porsche went cheap. [my humble opinion, way below Porsche standard!]

At the same time, there is a service from Poland and Ukraine [If I remember correctly] that can make the Samtec based Piwis 2 VCI from, to work with Piwis 3.

Unfortunately, their charges are just as much and frankly cost prohibitive as the New Piwis 3 VCI. 2-3-4 thousand dollars for these VCIs is simply not reasonable for small operators.

They will come down in price just like the Chinese VCIs did for all manufacturers as the markets get saturated and folks are not buying them as eagerly as at the beginning of the Piwis 3 had.

They will get as much money as the market bares. [as much as people are willing to pay]

Your more pointed answers will not come in this tread Ibi. This is Cars Fan’s money-making tread, he will not volunteer any information, but if U start your own tread, U may be more likely to find out stuff.


What Do the Piwis 3 updates replace Piwis 2?

Diagnostics application is used for communication with control units. You can search for, identify, code and control program units, read out the event memory, execute complex processes, change drive links and execute routines.

Guided fault finding (GFF) generates a test plan for a fault code. This test plan shows the best sequence for carrying out tests. GFF compiles a list of recommended tests, documents and wiring diagrams

Actual values/input signals functions display you the actual values and input signals of control units

Drive links/tests function displays the drive links of control units, allows you to change the parameters of these drive links and run test routines for individual control units

Maintenance/repairs function group – use this function to call up control unit-specific processes that cannot be implemented generically from the ODX data

Coding/programming function group – use this function to write coding values. Piwis 3 can code Values automatically or set manually. This function group includes (Automatic coding, Manual

coding, Customer-specific settings, and Factory settings) coding modes

Logging – use this function to activate logging for diagnostics, guided fault finding (GFF) and measuring equipment applications. Temporary and permanent working log can be created

Filter – use this function to limit the view of the control units installed in the vehicle. In the diagnostic application, you can create, edit, activate, deactivate or assign filters

Wiring diagrams application is the representation of physical connections and layouts of circuits

Measuring equipment interface work for DC and AC voltage measurement, direct and alternating current measurement, diode testing, resistance measurement, continuity/open circuit testing, showing voltage, current and resistance over time (oscilloscope function)
