If you get the following problems regarding BMW EWS3 with Autel IM508/IM608 XP400 Pro, here is the solution.
There is no way to do ews3 with IM508 XP400 Pro. I have done everything but it tells me the same thing: programmer not connected (communication error).
I failed to read BMW 2004 model EWS3 immo data with Autel IM608 Pro. Follow the instruction but gives a response timeout error.
Please do following. (need xp400pro)
1. Enter the BMW EWS3 path of the programmer to try to read and write;
2. Check whether the adapter board pins correspond to the EWS3 slots accurately;
3. Operate in strict accordance with the operating instructions.
Step 1: Connect the matching board and EWS3 module first.
Step 2: Connect the board and XP400 PRO.
Step 3: USB connect XP400 PRO and tablet.
Step 4: Connect the 12V power supply to the XP400 PRO; note that the power of the IM508 must be more than 30%.
Step 5: Open the menu and execute the read function.
Step 6: If the 12V is not connected, and the function is executed directly, the USB port will hang up and cannot be used. In this case.
Step 7. If still do not work with above step. try to connect the xp400pro to PC programmer and do the functions.
please restart the tablet, the USB port is enabled, and communication can be performed normally.
If still do not working with above steps. Try to connect the xp400pro to PC programmer and do the functions.
If all no luck, send data log to Autel technician.
