Live demonstration using KESS to read/write data to car.
KESS V2 chip tuning kit (latest 2017v) let's you quickly, easily and safely tune car performance and modify it's systems behavior in 4 easy steps as shown below...
It let's you download vehicles ECU chip data (even if it's encrypted, like on new cars) - which you can then modify using a car map editing software.
Once edited, upload the data file back to car and see immediate changes with performance, dynamics, component behavior, etc.
Here's how it works in 4 steps...
STEP 1: Plug KESS into car's OBD-II port
STEP 2: Plug KESS into laptop's USB port
STEP 3: Launch KESS software
STEP 4: Read/Write data to vehicles EEPROM ECU chip
What's more, tuning/remapping is completely safe because you can backup and restore original ECU data back to car in 1-click.
Who's it for?...
It's either for home car owners who'd like to save on fuel, improve horse power, adjust driving comfort (like RPM to gear change)...
Or for high-tech advanced car technicians/tuning shops who already tune for customers and need a tuner with a much larger vehicle support. Or even if you'd like to start tuning for money... since it's a highly profitable business... and you can easily charge up to $1000 - $2500 per tune.
WARNING: Please keep this in mind...
Step 1: Disconnect internet/WIFI before installing software for first time. Also internet/WIFI MUST be disconnected everytime, before launching KESS software.
Step 2: Make sure hardware is NOT connected to computer when installing for first time.
Step 3: Install KESS software from download link. Say "Yes" to all components it asks to install, including: Microsoft Visual Library & Drivers.
Step 4: Exit software after first installation.
Step 5: Plug in KESS Hardware to your USB port. Windows will now install drivers automatically.
Step 6: You may now launch KESS software and connect to car.
You MUST be disconnected from internet/WIFI everytime BEFORE launching KESS software.
Q: Is this a master or slave version?
A: Master version.
Q: What's the difference between KESS V2 and K-TAG?
A: KESS V2 has OBD function, while KTag does not. Meaning KESS can also diagnose/read/clear cars fault codes.
Q: Can I update KESS V2 via internet?
A: No. DO NOT update it else you'll brake the license. We'll send you an email when upgrades are available.
Q: What's the difference between KESS V2 and FGTech V53?
A: They both have large support for many cars, but they do tuning via different method. FGTech V53 has BDM function, whole KESS V2 does not. KESS V2 has Anti-mediation lock module, and it can do new and encrypted cars better than FGTech V53.
Q: Customer told us that KESS V2 can not do EDC17 well, such as Bosch EDC 17 (cp04-CP14-CAN-Med17.X ) and Bosch Bosch EDC 17 C54 (Passat, Golf, Crafter, Octávia, Yeti-VW). EDC16 all ok.
A: Correct, Kess V2 can not do EDC17. However it can do EDC16 well, but when you do it, you need to connect the Anti-mediation lock module to read and write data for vehicles. Because new style vehicles have new encrypted techniques.
Q: How to do checksum for KESS V2? Does the KESS V2 automatically re-write it? Also, can Kess V2 can do trucks like Mercedes MP1/MP2/MP3 or MAN TGA?
A: Device will automatically do checksums.
Q: Can Kess V2 can do trucks like Mercedes MP1/MP2/MP3 or MAN TGA?
A: It can't do trucks.
Q: If I encountered problem for checksum error when reading the ECU - dow to I solve it?
A: Install these 3 modules to solve the problem: Microsoft Visual C++ 2005, 2008, 2010.
