Review: Porsche PIWIS cable Durametric 3.0.15.0

Here are reviews from those have tried the Chinese knock off Durametric tool on the web: http
cheap & works:
I have a cheap Chinese copy and it works. but it only allows me to use an early version of the Durametric software which is why it comes with the software on CD Rom. i cannot for example download version 6 from the Durametric website and use it with the copy cable.
works with durametric 3.0.15.0:
i bought few months ago a PIWI cable on the web. I tried it with durametric 3.0.15.0 and it works fine but with restrictions.
I did a test with release 5 and 6 and it faile
only with Durametric version 3:
You can update some of the Durametric clone cables, but most of them are bricked if you go beyond around version 5.0.6 of the Durametric software. Others are bricked way before that. So as Clint would say “Do you feel lucky?” They usually come with V3.1 software, which is hopelessly out of date, and very limited on what you can do on a 9×7 onwards. OK-ish for 9x6s though.
If you want something that will read and reset fault codes, and read live data, from all the control modules of everything from a 9×6 up to a 9×1, including Panameras and Cayennes, take a look at the iCarsoft i960 hand held scanner. About £100. It won’t reset service indicators, but is a useful tool for diagnostics, and resetting things like airbag lights. (No affiliation, by the way).
need Windows XP:
Used this. direct off cnautotool.com not resold and marked up.
Search for Porsche Piwis.
Yes if your car is listed it will generally work, but you need Win XP ideally though bodging some drivers for a later version of Durametric gets it to work on Win 8. Looking into this for you, I downloaded Durametric 5 or 6 and used the drivers. Or just source a cheap Win XP laptop.
“YMMV” but if you just want to fool around no harm in trying. I got some interesting info off this, and also reset an airbag light (oddly, via 993 model selection despite being a 996).
My conclusion, if you are half hearted about this and don’t really see the need to splash out on a Durametric kit, then yes, this is worth having, and useful.
useful to read error code:
this is not a bad product.
you can reset most if not all the warning lights.
also useful to read error code from CEL
I think if you are gonna work on the car, you need it.
I wish they would have emulated the FULL PIWIS functions but this is just a small part of what the dealer can do.
read & clear fault codes:
With the software I could only read fault codes for each of these item and then clear them. I went through each of them to see what other contents were shown and they all save for the airbag 04 showed “no fault” and the Climate Control had a whole page of errors of something like “left flapper valve value implausible”. The air con works fine so I left this alone.
I only bought this Durametric cable for the air bag light and it served my purpose. I would not know what to do with other fault codes if I had them.
Worked for me.
useful, reset the airbag light
I bought one for 20 usd, found it useful and actually reset the airbag light with it
You can also delete error codes, read a lot of live and stored performance data off it, etc etc.
It’s  previous version of Durametric.
It works as long as you know the limitations, major one being XP only unless you install the Durametric V6 drivers then you can get it to work on Win8 and presumably previous versions of Windows too.
I’m not sure re using Durametric V6 in its entirety though, I thought you needed a specific proprietary cable for that which is why the clones are always supplied with an older version of Durametric.
Useful tool if you are not willing (or needing) to commit to anything special.
woth, able to reset the airbag light:
For what it’s worth, this knock-off was able to reset my airbag light for a total outlay of $43. My 993 came back from some simple repairs with the light illuminated. Of course the garage know nothing about it and when asked said “common to the 993, we didn’t do it”.
The software installed says “durametric for porsche version 3.0.15.0” which was downloaded from their site. Sadly I did not take a screenshot or copy the fault codes which appeared for the air bag unit before I cleared them. I suspect that the functionality is limited due to the age of the software, when plugged in I only saw the following items to review / clear, and my exact recollection of the numbers following the modules is not clear:

DME 5.0
DME 5.5
Air bag 02
Airbag 04
Climate Control
[perhaps one other I cannot recall]
work ok:
I bought something similar for E20 and it seems to work OK although I think after trying the Cd it came with I ended up downloading software from Durametic site.
I think this is it:
http
work fine:
yes i can confirm it works fine. Ordered from them last week. Ive been able to reset my airbag, sort service light etc and saved me an expensive trip to my local Porsche dealer.
Conclusion:
The Durametric clone cable (also called Porsche PIWIS cable) is verified to works perfectly for fault codes read & clear and airbag light reset. But the cable cannot works for new software; you have to install Durametric 3.0.15.0 on Windows XP only! That is, you cannot update Durametric sw to version 5 or version 6 for new vehicles. Durametric version 3 works with most Porsche in the year 1990 – 2007:
1996-1998 Porsche 911 (993)
1996-1998 Porsche 911 Turbo (993)
1998-2004 Porsche 911 Carrera (996)
1998-2004 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 (996)
2000-2005 Porsche 911 Turbo (996)
2000-2005 Porsche 911 GT2, GT3 (996)
2005-2007 Porsche 911 (997)
1997-2004 Porsche Boxster (986)
2000-2004 Porsche Boxster S (986)
2005-2007 Porsche Boxster (987)
2003-2006 Porsche Cayenne (955)
2005-2007 Porsche Cayman (987)

Porsche Durametric Enthusiast vs Professional Kit

This is for those who’re looking for a Durametric cable but don’t know which one to choose, the Enthusiast kit or the Pro kit.
Part 1: Which Durametric do pp use? Enthusiast or Professional
Hella:
I have the Durametric Enthusiast and wish I had bought the pro. The Enthusiast lets you run all of the diagnostics but lacks most of the coding which would be beneficial.
My impression is that the other port tools are limited and not as developed.
Petza:
I have Durametric Pro and it’s good, but seems like there are some things on my 09 Cayenne Turbo S that it won’t do, like bleed the PDCC hydraulics. It works great on my two 05 997s though. The other option some of the Cayenne guys like is the one from icarsoft, so maybe compare those 2 and then make your decision.
Bruce:
I have the Durametric pro… Durametric allows you to grab and record live values…. so you can track all kinds of information that is way beyond me…. so you can see what is going on inside the ignition/timing system, sensor values, etc. as you drive. I am a novice so I don’t understand this stuff but I gotta believe it is important if you are going to diagnose engine problems.
Smitten:
I have the Durametric pro. It seems the older the car, the better it works. On my 997, it’s great. On my 981, it’s ok but is prone to freezing. On the 2017 Cayenne, it crashes regularly and can’t do everything it can on other models.
Jellonailer:
Now a proud owner of Duramtric Pro thanks to my awesome wife.
jkw:
I originally purchased the Enthusiast model and then realized I needed the Porsche Diagnostic Tool. I called the company and they gave me 100% credit for returning the Enthusiast towards the purchase of a Pro
JDS:
Coding requires the Pro version, like enabling side markers as blinkers, using the key fob to courtesy open or close the windows, etc.
Part 2: Differences: Durametric Enthusiast vs Professional Kit
There are two main differences between the Enthusiast and Professional Kits:
(1) The number of cars supported:
The Professional kits support an unlimited number of cars. The Enthusiast kits support up to three cars only. The limitation of the Enthusiast kit is based on the car’s VIN – not model.
(2)The Coding and Command Console features:
Beginning with Durametric version 6, Durametric supports the Coding and Command Console features. These features are included with the Professional kits only.
The Coding feature provides for the ability to enable or disable predefined features in the car such as airbags, daytime running lights, cruise control, and the rear spoiler where applicable.
The Command Console feature is a means of communicating with the control units using very low-level communications. This feature is very seldom used.

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

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.
