Connecting VAS5054 custom program Manager to manage devices J2534.

Install the program, as an example, Consult 3 plus v.46.11.00 or fresh.

Append the following lines to the file C:\CONSULT-III_plus\System\Application\ApplicationData\CommonSetting\DiagnosticTool.ini

;vi_device_name=PassThru+ XS


and don’t forget about the adapter, according to the scheme below, in order not to burn.For older (before 2000 (approximately) – it will not work!! only for fresh. Just in case – pinout OBD II VAG & Nissan.


For vas5054, pin 8 is empty.
For this reason the ignition key can not detect the position.
You need to replace the vas5054 1-pin peg with the 8-pin peg (shown picture below)

CarDAQ-Plus with Consult 3+

Try this. I tried both KTS and Jbox2 (cardaq plus2). Both works. Just change the INI file to the name of exact name of your device. Following is the setting for J-box2. So change the device name to your device name.

vi_device_name=J-box 2

“tab_index=1” seems the key to make jbox2 especially. Another thing is that you don’t need change the name of Jbox2 folder to nissan_VI2. Just copy the name of device (in this case “J-Box 2″) and paste to the vi_device_name in INI file. so it gonna be vi_device_name-J-Box 2”. That is it. At the first time, I changed the name of the folder in regedit, and errors showed. Now, automatically consult3 recognized jbox2 and vin number now. Only DTC and clear codes were detected though so far. I did not dig deeper yet.

You can either choose original or a OEM clone VI2.

Only tool that works 100% is OEM Consult 3 plus VI2.

consult3 vi2 is the newest-released Nissan diagnostic tool  supporting Nissan up to 2018 year.


Diagnostic: confirmed!

ECU programming: confirmed! ECU Programming without card

Key programming: confirmed! able to program new smart keys with a immo card


I tested successfully it can calculate pin code for key programming, it can also make key but need to get one additional Nissan Consult-3 Plus Security Card, otherwise the button “Immobilizer key” is gray color and is unavailable, the Security Card is expensive to me, so I didn’t order one, but borrow one from my friends and use together with consult3 plus. Also I borrow one GTR card to work together with consult3 plus and successfully diagnose, ECU program and immobilizer program for Nissan GTR cars.

Nissan Consult 3+ with FVDI J2534 (SVCI J2534)


You need modify “DiagnosticTool.ini”

Try with this:







Note: if it gives you “Connections failure to VI
Touch show detail and confirm the detail”


That is,

the “vi_device_name” is not correct, I was have the same problem with vas5054 and actia xs as passthru.

You need check your correct device name, It’s very important because consult need’s “call” your device driver.

Try on device properties to search the device name.
