ML350 W164 2006: Read EZS, add key, write BE key all done in 17mn.

Really fast and i’m happy with the first try on car. Use late software 2.0.0.0
I just plug in the OBD, put key and turn ignition ON and read.

After this step, CGDI will ask only put in EZS and in CGDI.

Just all. PSW query is more longer than 209, about 12mn to get PSW.

2009 W164:

2009 W164 ML450
Key add work
Cgdi 15min
Very good speed!!

 

2009 W164:

w164 after 2009
I did for testing 2 types of programming _ have got EZS with both programmed keys because customer claimed somethimes EIS works sometimes doesn’t – I have found that connector for immo aerial was desoldered from PCB so when I fixed it – EIS became fully working again – and then I started testing CGDI and made 2 types of programming (all programming on bench – EZS + GATEWAY EMULATOR)
1) programming in case one key is available and adding spare key – ALL OK!
2) programming in case of ALL KEYS LOST – ALL OK!

spare key programming was pretty fast
AKL scenario takes circa 80minutes to get data from EIS and You have to plug in and out emulator key every 5 seconds – I have bought VVDI POWER ADAPTER to pass all hassle on to adapter so You don’t have to watch whole process and move key in and out manually – but it doesn’t work with CGDI – seems adapter works only with VVDI MB and software drives it by addressed pin to switch connection off and on between ezs and key emulator – maybe CGDI TEAM could write a code to their SW and make VVDI POWER ADAPTER useful for all their customers.

 

2010 W207:

C300 W207 2010 spare key without problem and in 2 minute

(exiting key is BE, so no need server query PSW)

 

2010 W204:

W204 2010 adding key on bench
Total time about 15mn.

 

2014 W246:

W246 2014 FSB3: Add key successful in 15mn

 

2017 W906:
generate a password in Sprinter W906 2017 year.

 

 

Part 3: CGDI MB and Mercedes FBS4

 

No tool can do FBS4 key?

No.  With genuine xentry and daimler fbs server.  Makes FBS4 every day via OBD very fast and easy.

Diagspeed announced the dates of FBS4 solution. But not confirmed yet. The Diagspeed has the reputation of being the best in the Mercedes world to make keys, Reset ECU’s and trouble shoot problems that a normal scan tool can not.  It is worth to take a gamble.

 

CGDI MB can read FBS4 keys and knows if it’s in a working status or key is damaged

Conclusion:

 

CGDI MB is a good Mercedes key programming tool, as good as VVDI MB TOOL.

It can do a lot for Mercedes like key programming, EIS/EZS functions, key data generation, infrared key abilities, etc.
