Mut 3 Mut III MUT-3 Mitsubishi Diagnostic Scanner FAQS

Want to know more about MUT 3 diagnostic tool ? Lets check some FAQs as bellow :

What is MUT-3 ?
MUT stands for Multi-Use-Tester.
The MUT-3 can perform a variety of functions including rewriting the vehicles ECU, rewriting the vehicles TCM, reading diagnosis codes, and clearing diagnosis codes.

What is the difference between the USD$415 and USD$748 Chinese mut 3 and What is the function of the cf car includes in some mut3
There have no generic answer as that totally depends on vendors, etc. Pick two actual auctions or items for sale and compare those two.

There are usually two flavors available – one that reads codes and stuff and the other that is capable of doing programming. The programming units are usually a higher price.

How to install Mitsubishi MUT 3 Software on Windows 7 ?
Please check here : How to install software

Chinese MUT 3, can it do teach in and reprogramming?
Yes, it works.

I heard I can download a MUT III online. Is that true? Where?
There are various sources to obtain the MUT-III SOFTWARE online. However doing so through a torrent or FTP site is software considered piracy and illegal.

Do I need to install the file somewhere in my hard drive?
Yes, you will need to manually copy the FILE. it does not appear in the DB anywhere.
You select the TCU portion, then Options, then program TCU and manually search for the file. Then tell it Yes to continue with the programming.

My vin’s not recognized either! Where do you find the b001?
The DB in your installation is not for the proper region. Not to worry. It should show the current VIN and you can use that same one when doing VIN programming.

Note the “CFF_SST” subdirectory in the CDE12031 subdir (or off the root of the new CD you burned). All the different SST TCU ROM files are in there. Three for EVO (A749, B001, B151), some for Ralliart, some for other models with an SST.

You will need to manually copy those files to the computer then specifically tell the MUT3 program where to locate them. It’s not intuitive on how to do this, but it’s not particularly difficult either.

It’s just like falling off a bicycle – Learn it once and know it for life.

No communication with V.C.I. i have the newest mitsubishi software: PRE14031_00 ….

Is the VCI (large black box with both cables connected to it) powered on (there’s a small rocker switch on the side). A green light will come on.

Do you using the blue db25-OBD2 cable?
Was the VCI recognized by the OS when the USb cable was connected to the computer? It should install a driver for it. Look in Computer Management. Devices to see if it’s seen by the OS (with it connected, powered on). Try different USB cable.
Lastly the ignition switch must be in Run position, engine does not need to be running.
It’s always a good idea to have a battery charger connected when doing programming. Just in case the battery isn’t strong enough.

Outside of a defective unit or cable, that’s about it. The CF card plays no part as far as connecting to the car.

Is it true I can unlock Super Sport Mode and Launch Control with a MUT-III?
Yes.

I don’t know of anyone who got the ecu update thing to work
but you don’t need it , it all works fine without it

I have been successful in getting EVERY update to install. But I agree there’s not much useful in there for me so far.

( I hate how html’ing screws up tabs and directory listings!! )
Original DVD directories:
08/06/2013 03:05 PM <DIR> CD3E12031
08/06/2013 03:05 PM <DIR> PRE12031

cd PRE12031 (Path = \PRE12031):
Dir:
08/06/2013 03:06 PM <DIR> .
08/06/2013 03:06 PM <DIR> ..
07/13/2012 12:40 AM 53 autorun.inf
08/06/2013 03:05 PM <DIR> BAT
08/06/2013 03:06 PM <DIR> INSTALL
07/13/2012 12:40 AM 139,264 Mut3Check.exe
07/13/2012 12:40 AM 633 Mut3Check.exe.manifest
07/13/2012 03:01 AM 4,511 MUT3Check.ini
08/06/2013 03:06 PM <DIR> N
08/06/2013 03:06 PM <DIR> UNINSTALLER

So one would execute \PRE12031\Mut3Check.exe to install the MUT3 *program*.

Back on DVD:
cd ..\CD3E12031 (Path = \CD3E12031)
dir

07/13/2012 12:40 AM 61 autorun.inf
08/06/2013 03:05 PM <DIR> CFF_SST
07/13/2012 12:40 AM 225,280 ECUUpdateJudg.exe
08/06/2013 03:05 PM <DIR> ENV
08/06/2013 03:05 PM <DIR> MUT3

Burn the above files and directories to a new CD so these are in the ROOT of the CD (NOT in a subdirectory)

Dir on the new CD will show this:
07/13/2012 12:40 AM 61 autorun.inf
08/06/2013 03:05 PM <DIR> CFF_SST
07/13/2012 12:40 AM 225,280 ECUUpdateJudg.exe
08/06/2013 03:05 PM <DIR> ENV
08/06/2013 03:05 PM <DIR> MUT3

Then run the ECUUpdateJudg.exe program. All this does is populate the database with stuff that you probably won’t need. There can be useful ETACS/ABS/AYC/etc. updates but we have no way – just now – of knowing which ones we may want or what they do, or how to get back to what we just over-flashed.

Discussion Toyota TIS Techstream OBD2 interface

General questions about OBD2 interfaces:

MVCI for Toyota, Honda, Volvo
Another, less expensive one
MINI VCI for TOYOTA TIS Techstream V14
Mangoose

Are these more or less recent USB to OBD2 devices pretty much the same? There are many out there, but is it correct that if the device connects to the port and can read and write, then it is all a matter of software after that point? Are the devices tied to proprietary software, or is the OBD2 port generic enough that any software will work with any (recent) interface?

Answer:

If OBD was really a standard, there would be 4 pins on the connector. Instead there are 16 pins. There’s the old GM standard pins, the Ford pins, the European pins, the current Toyota pins, the Leaf pins…..

The connector that plugs into the OBD port has a microcomputer in it that translates some subset of the OBD possibilities into a serial protocol. That serial protocol can be delivered to a PC via USB or Bluetooth.

There are currently two major device standards in use, ELM and J2534. The cheap devices all use ELM, and most are imitations of the devices made by ELM Electronics.

ELM is ok for slow speed queries of the CAN bus on current Toyotas. There are a few premium ELM protocol devices that are fast enough to handle the full data rate on a Prius. The ELM protocol does not support the K-Line interface on the Prius, which means that TPMS, Gen2 keyfob, and Gen2 option setup cannot be supported by any software on the PC.

J2534 is required for use with Techstream. Which means the Denso interface that dealers use, the Mongoose, the Tactrix, or one of the Mongoose imitations like the Mangoose (I kid you not…). The Tactrix has really only been debugged with Subaru/Mitsubishi vehicles. I don’t have any experience with the Mongoose clones.

Note: the MVCI only are compatible with Windows XP, so you’ll want to confirm first. I purchased a Netbook to use with them, as it is smaller than my laptop and easier to maneuver in a car.

GM New Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) Programming Instructions After Replacement

GM vehicles equipped with a digital instrument panel cluster (IPC), and if you replace a IPC you will find you can not start vehicle.It require you to relearn/program the new instrument panel cluster.So here i want to list the procedures on how to program new instrument panel cluster for GM vehicles.

Program GM New Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) After Replacement

Follow the security system (PASSLOCK) AUTO LEARN procedure outlined below to enable the replacement IPC and the ECC to communicate and learn a new password:

1.Before replacing the ECC, document all existing Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) prior to repair.

2.Place the ignition key in the ON position.

3.Using the clear DTC function, clear all security system (PASSLOCK) and Powertrain DTCs.

4.Rotate the ignition key to the CRANK position (attempt to start the vehicle). The engine will attempt to start and stall. Leave the key in the ON position.

5.Wait 10 minutes. Observe the SECURITY light. The SECURITY light will flash for a few seconds and remain on for 10 minutes.

6.Turn the ignition key to the OFF position after the SECURITY light goes out. Wait for at least 30 seconds.

7.Repeat steps 4-7 two (2) more times. A new password is now ready to be communicated to the security system (PASSLOCK) sensor, IPC and ECC with the next ignition cycle (start attempt).

8.If the engine starts, the Password Auto Learn procedure is complete. If the engine fails to start, perform relearn procedure again.

9.Check for any DTCs. Repair as necessary and clear if present.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Refer to your vehicles service manual for detailed relearn procedures specific to your application.
