2000 Mercedes S430 Fuel Guage innacuracy, fix using STAR sdconnect

2000 S430 Problem description – Fuel Guage inaccuracy:
I had to change my “Rear Sam?” because of some water damage I had gotten under the back seat, on the passenger side. This had made my fuel guage not work, or any power go to the rear. I had changed the SAM, and now everything works, even the fuel guage. But then I kept on driving, the guage needle would move, but it is innacurate. It would tell me there is like 18G in the car for about 250miles of driving. And when I fill up the car…The needle will stay all the way down, as if it was not working, then after about 50 miles of driving, it will shoot all the way up.

Someone had said it is my Sending Unit. Another had told me it was a fuel relay?

Has anybody had this problem, or know about it and can tell me what I can do to fix this…

My fuel guage used to work properly until the rear SAM was damaged, and when I replaced the SAM, The rear tail lights started working again…Because there was no power going to the rear at all because of the damaged comp. Now that I replaced it, I have all power back in the rear, and there is power for the fuel guage…But it just doesn’t read right….And when I fill it up, it wont read at all until about 40 to 50 Miles into my drive.

Solution:
It appears that the SAM MAY need to be coded and it is behaving “strangely” because the unit has insufficient or incorrectparameters to send the correct signal to the fuel gauge.
Coded means “programmed” to match your vehicle.

The SAM you have purchased is a generic part and MAY fit to many models and markets of MB and needs to be “set up”.
This requires connecting to a Mercedes Benz Diagnostic Tool (MB proprietary) or similartype of diagnostics computer to carry out the procedure.

Connecting to such a computer will also enable On Board Diagnostic codes to be read which should assist in pointing towards the problem by identifying that parameters are missing or implausible for the Vehicle Identity Number VIN etc.

Who is good supplier of STAR diagnostic tool?
I have STAR and it’s worth every penny… just takes some time to get to learn how it works. Dont get one with virtual image software, get an actual Dell D630 with original HD and SD C4 unit.
Compared with the virtual image software, it runs faster, Internal is so much nicer because now I just have the multiplexer and laptop to carry to the car, nothing to unplug or fall off, if you use it quite a bit then go External hard drive.

how – to – update – handy – baby

Conclusion:

eCOM DoIP: Main for new vehicles, cannot use for DAS\HHT vehicles. K-Line communication may not so stable, need specially setup on any diag sw installation.

SD C4: More popular and universal for Mercedes vehicles. The only limitation is K-Line communication in Vediamo from ver5* Easy to setup. In most cases work as is.

Many thanks for your attention. If you have any better ideas or advice, please comment below. We will check and reply you as soon as possible

 

How to use Xentry DAS on AVDI passthru?

What is the AVDI recognized by Xentry?

Xentry Passthru is different from from regular Xentry openshell. Xentry passthru does not use SDconnect toolkit. When you launch the program it will give you a dropdown where you can choose which J2534 device

How to use Xentry Passthru?

If you got the Xentry Passthru installed, there is a tool which will do the dirty work for you.

Normally it is not linked or doesnt have desktop shortcut but resides (at least in my installation)
under

C:\Program Files (x86)\Mercedes-Benz\xentry\bin\SelectPTDevice

IF you have installed your passthru (would that be AVDI or anything else) with correct drivers, registry entries etc it will just present you with list of options and you select your VCI from dropdown list.

Heard good things about AVDI J2534 compatibility (real thing, don’t know about clones) so it shouldn’t be a big deal. Recently i have tried to use BOSCH KTS560 as passthru and it works perfectly okay.

For curiosity, i did also test the 20-euro MiniVCI that gets normally bundled with Toyota techstream packages. to my surprise it also works albeit slow and sometimes freezes the application. This one can be actually made to work even with old DAS like 2009, 2012….it’s just matter of proper settings in cal.ini and slave.ini

For DAS/Xentry users:

Old thread – but do not run the SetPassThruDAS.exe, as it was written for DAS/Xentry for Windows XP, and not Openshell or Xentry Passthru. All you need to do is install a fresh OS (Windows 7 Enterprise x86 or x64 SP1) ideally on a physical laptop, connect the AVDI device to the USB port and run the SetupInterface_yourserialnumber_PASSTHRU_xxxxxxx.exe and Next through the setup process. If you have a current version of the Passthru software, you will see a grayed out option for installing drivers for DAS that you cannot select, but do not be concerned about that. It will detect the AVDI, and install the appropriate J2534 dll files in the Windows\System32 directory. Then continue installing your Passthru software provided on the Blu-ray from Daimler. It will take a while to install, and once it verifies your hardware ID and installs your StartKey, launch Xentry Passthru from the icon it creates, and it will prompt you first thing as to what interface you want to use. You will see Abritus72 AVDI PT (your serial number here) in the drop down box. Select that device, and that is all their is to it. Xentry should automatically communicate with the vehicle.

2. SCN coding importance

The move to SCN coding was *very* important. There are too many configuration items in every ECU now to have someone set options by hand whenever an ECU is changed, or to understand how changes on one device have to be done on other devices. These cars are really very very complex, and unlike your laptop, if something goes wrong can result in fatalities.

There are software dependencies between different ECUs, and actually loading software into ECUs is now needed regularly – and thus so is up-to-date diagnosis equipment and up-to-date firmware disks too. A simple example is an Audio system. If you update the firmware in the COMAND unit the firmware in every other MOST device needs also to be compatible (if you want it to work reliably) and thus they all need firmware updates. If you change one component then all components need to be updated to be properly compatible.

The latest equipment even now uses ethernet to load firmware into some ECUs (so it takes 20 minutes not 20 hours).

Without SCN coding it would take considerably longer to change any control unit, would result in mistaken configurations, and thus the cost of repair (or re-repair) would go up and up as systems got more complicated. SCN coding basically allows the correct configuration to be loaded into the car.

Imagine what could/would happen if you had to “hand code” the airbag controller after replacing it? Would you trust all of your airbags to work after the local mechanic had to set all the options correctly? I certainly would not.

Your comment that “The capital cost of the latest version, plus the monthly subscription, means it is beyond the reach of many smaller independent garages” is just wrong.

If your garage has the skills to deal with the technology (and i’d argue that if they don’t they shouldn’t be doing complex things with the newest vehicles), then it is completely affordable.

If you want to work on older cars, then most independents seem to use a clone machine and use it for limited things.

The EU competition commissioner has previously taken a good look at this market and enforced rules that mean diagnosis equipment (for newer vehicles) is available at sensible prices. This is not true in the rest of the world. Mercedes diagnosis systems in USA are more expensive, and in the far east (and I think Australia) are not available at all to independents.

Sorry to be so contradictory, and in summary, but without SCN coding there would be misconfigurations and un-reliability – possibly dangerous to life – occurring quite regularly. And if you are going to need to work on newer cars, there are very affordable Xentry diagnostics systems – you just need to talk to Mercedes.

SDconnect C4 DAS Fault (1.2)-2.503.9901 (customer solution)

Phingoc in trouble:

The laptop is a Dell D630 with a china SD Connect 4.

Delete the 3 “update” folders in C:\program files\SDconnect toolkit (or rename them).. then perform a repair of your SDNetControl by pressing Start\Programs\Service\Setup SDNetControl .. it will start up and ask what you want to do, select repair.. let it do its thing and then go back and delete/rename the update folders in C:\program files\SDconnect toolkit then REBOOT when its done… that should get you up and running.. it is VERY important to REBOOT after deleting the update folders!!!

Phingoc feedback:

Thank you verry much! Big Grin that fixed the whole problem.

start laptop
Rename update folders
Run setup SdNetControl
The “repair” option wasnt displayed, but it went straight into instalation. No options, but it went automaticaly to instalation :S
Reboot after instalation

Re-delete or Rename update folders after running SDNC setup

Delete setings from the MUX
Reconfigure SDconnect
Start Xentry/das and it worked straight away. Big Grin

Benz eCOM DoIP vs. MB SD Connect C4 Diagnostic Scanner

Look here: What’s the difference between Benz eCOM DoIP diagnostic tool and MB Star diagnostic Mb Star C4 multiplexer?
Benz-eCOM-DoIP-vs-MB-SD-Connect-C4-Diagnostic-Scanner

In summary,

New car: eCom DoIP
eCom – laboratory\development tool. Most cheap and light. Can’t be used with DAS\HHT vehicles. Need luck with kline communication. Need to be specially setup on any diag sw installation.

Normal: Clone SDConnect C4
SDConnect – workshop\robust tool. Most universal in use. The only limitation is kline communication in Vediamo from ver5* Easy to setup. In most cases work as is.

Good to know:

Actia eCOM DoIP Box Multiplexer Kit supports DoIP for the latest E and S series, and it’s perfect for Mercedes COMAND NTG5, NTG5s1, NTG5s2, NTG5.5

ECOM is the diagnostic and swipe communication interface used by daimler-benz’s production and r&d department. It supports the after sales diagnostic software Xentry, Vediamo, and the Monaco DTS, the exclusive development software, with higher access rights than SDconnect (C4).

ECom supports the CAN/DoIP network, which CAN be used for the diagnosis and brushing of new car audio and video entertainment systems. Vediamo for Mercedes engineers is an engineering software used by Mercedes engineers to develop diagnostic software, that is, Xentry and DAS now in use is developed based on Vediamo and delivered to general after-sales dealers. For this reason, using the Mercedes super engineering version is open to all diagnosis /coding/retrofit/flashing programming features. It is possible to add or reduce SA codes freely without going through VEDOC(the process of the original factory applying for modifying the equipment code), so as to achieve the purpose of modifying the vehicle equipment, such as adding SA500 electric rearview mirror.

Xentry and DAS Developer mode, commonly known as: exploit data engineering version after 2010, has added many restrictions on functions. Therefore, people may encounter that the vehicle version is too new to enter the control unit, or they cannot make any special modifications after entering the control unit. For example, the w204/212 2012 meter may need to be configured in the regional language, or turn on other convenience functions.

The database of diagnosis /coding/retrofit/flashing for the Mercedes engineer version USES the Xentry database, so the Mercedes engineer version is dependent on the Xentry version. As long as the database is new, the Mercedes engineer version can use the V4.00 version on the new model, and compact3 & SDconnect does not support the ODX document. The latest V5.00 supports ODX files with eCom. It is recommended to use eCom with DoIP function, which is faster and more stable.
