• T1N Sprinters 2004 diagnostic tools review: Autel MD808 Pro or Autel MD802. Here we go for details.
    Good Review 1. sdconnect C4 Clone & Autel MD802
    I have both a very good mb sdconnect C4 Clone and the Autel MD802….have I ever used them?….yeah long enough to find out that they do connect to my Sprinter, and will run live data, etc, but since I’ve had no issues to diagnose, I just have it serviced at Sun Motor Cars and enjoy the ride!
    Good Review 2: Autel MD808P for 2006 T1N
    I bought the Autel MD808P for my 2006 T1N I will let everyone know my experience.
    BTW there is a seller obdii365.com that is taking best offers I got one.
    The 808 pro read all the systems even ones like the radio that the snap on scanner did not access. I also was able to clear the oil change interval with it. I am happy with it so far the live data is very nice.
    Objective review 3: Autel MD808 Pro has deeper diagnostic function than Autel MD802
    My Autel MD802 worked just fine on my NCV3, T1N, Jeeps, Infiniti etc.
    It was lacking in function, and I would get the Autel MD808 Pro if I still had a need for it.
    Good Review 4: Autel MD808 pro for 2018 Sprinter
    I just purchased the Autel MD808 pro and just used it on my new 2018. I can say that it cleared my SRS code. It was my own fault for the code, I took the driver seat out to access underneath for a trailer brake controller and turned the key on before re connecting the seat belt and air bag wiring. Anyway, the 808 pro did the trick. I hope the future uses will prove just as easy.
    Autel MD808 Pro review on Sprinter 906.155
    I just purchases a MD808Pro to help with an ABS/ESP issue on our 906.155.
    This is my first time wrenching on the 906 infrastructure.
    So far the MD808P has been very helpful. Linked google drive includes a number of photos of the unit in operation and the online interface you get access to once registered, along with manuals and spec sheet. I’m happy to answer questions to my knowledge base, which is admittedly limited.
    Some specific notes:
    Creating an account on Autel, registering the scanner, and downloading scan updates were all incredibly easy.
    The unit uses a standard micro-sd, which can be removed and updated seperate from the unit
    Alternately, the unit can be updated via a USB cable.
    Power is supplied via either the USB or OBD cable, there are not batteries.
    Feel is generally good. Lighter than I expected, but quite reasonable.
    The screen is non-touch, but is clear, and easy to read.
    Currently only covers pre 2016 sprinters.

    Review: Autel MD808 for 2007 Sprinter 2500
    I purchased the MD 808 “non pro” in December 2017, after several visits to the dealer to clear my oil reset after I did my last oil change service, my 2007 Sprinter 2500 has never been able to reset the mileage reminder without a scan tool, even though the manual says I can, I couldn’t and everyone else who tried couldn’t either. So after 11 visits over the years, the dealer would clear it for me, took em a few minutes, I’d thank em and be on my way till the next year or so.
    Well for some reason this last time I couldn’t get anybody to clear it for me, I’d show up, call, pop in when I was told a tech would be in, but it never panned out. Finally I thought I’d try some other dealers in the city, the nicest was Mercedes-Benz of Farmington. Quite a drive from my town but hey, I got to get this reset, down to about 400 miles left on the nag screen even though when I changed the oil it was around 800 miles left. Tried another Sprinter service Co that’s a little closer and he wanted to charge me $125.00 to reset the computer that I’m supposed to be able to do myself? I told him really? Where’s the savings in doing my own service if I need to pay that kind of money? It cost me around that much for my MB approved oil and filter? Plus I like doing everything I can do myself on this van then I know what’s going into it, plus I enjoy it.
    Well the service adviser said bring it in and he’d do it this time for free, but next time he’d charge me, I brought it in and the tech had just left for lunch, apparently no one else had the knowledge to do it so I waited over an hour and the tech showed up, yes! Finally! I shared my situation with him and told him I hate begging people to reset my code around once a year but couldn’t see spending 5 grand on a scan tool, he said you can buy one like this for about $150 bucks, he proceeded to pull out the Autel 802? He said he preferred using the Autel over his Snap On? He cleared the oil reset in about 3 minuets, I tried to tip him for his help but he wouldn’t take it? Great tech that I’ll always remember. Got home and started searching obdii365.com for Autel scanners and for a little bit more $ decided on the MD 808, mainly because of the DPF feature it had, sorry for such a long post but I think this scan tool is the cats pajamas, I’d buy another in a heartbeat if needed. Just used it again last week when I went into limp mode & cel came on, scanner told me egr Position fault, I went around 30,000 miles since I cleaned my egr valve, my bad, I won’t wait that long again!
    Autel MD808Pro VS Autel MD802 for 2002/2006 T1N’s:
    1). Today I talked with an Autel tech that said for the 2002 to 2006 Sprinter the 808P cannot do anything extra that the MD802 can and that the 808P was designed to also work on newer vehicles.
    2). As far as I can tell the main difference between the 808 and 802 series is that the former is bidirectional and can execute some subset of manual test procedures (such as DPF regen, etc.) What would be even more useful than a list of what Autel says the 808 will do is an actual Sprinter owner confirming that the functions actually work. That will determine how much value the 808 really has over the 802 for our application.
    MD808 PRO VS Autel MX808:
    Just got off the phone with a tech from Autel, here’s what he said:
    – MD808PRO is not a replacement for the MD802 Elite, but just a higher end product. He said it can do everything for Sprinters that the MD802 can do, and more.
    I.e Autel The MD802 cannot activate the ABS module.
    – MX808 is an Android tablet based tool, with a significantly faster CPU, more flash, more RAM and wifi connectivity for updates/downloads. It can do everything the MD808PRO can do, and more (can program key fobs, has more live gauges). He expects the MX808 family will see more updates and more added functionality as time goes on.
    The one big downside to the MX808, aside from initial price, is that after the first year, additional updates will require a $125/year subscription. MD808PRO updates are free for lifetime. His recommendation, which seems reasonable for us single vehicle end-users, (from their product line) was to go with an MD808PRO.
    This is the function list of Autel MD808 Pro / MD802 All system / MX808:

  • 2003 Benz Sprinter T1N loss of power solved with Autel MD802’s assistance.
    Here we go for details.
    Car model and symptom:
    A loss of power in my 2003 Benz Sprinter T1N with no CEL (aka MIL) illumination.
    Sprinter scanner to use and fault code:
    Scan with my Autel MaxiDiag Elite MD802 scanner:
    Read fault code: P1470-4 Charge pressure control valve – Cable has Short circuit to Positive.
    What I did:
    Testing with a multimeter showed 12 Volts on the Brown wire which I always thought was Ground on a Mercedes.
    I inspected the harness as far as possible and could see no evidence of any damage.
    I got to thinking that if it wasn’t a wiring fault how could the fault code report “Short to Positive”. The answer seemed to be that if the valve had too low a resistance it would then draw too high a current and hence may flag up the “Short to Positive” code.
    I then found a thread… and in Post Dr A said ” A functional 612 vacuum solenoid will read approx. 14.0 Ohms when using a quality multimeter, zeroed to compensate probe resistance.”
    A final check of the wiring was to disconnect the valve and clear the original code, scanning again gave a new code…
    P1470-8 Charge pressure control valve – Cable has Open circuit or Short circuit to ground.
    To my way of thinking this confirmed the wiring as being OK.
    I purchased a new valve (Genuine MB) and this measured 14.3 Ohms so in line with Dr A’s figure. After fitting I was finally able to clear all codes!
    I have yet to road test my Sprinter but am confident I have found the fault.
    So if you have a code P1470-4 try unplugging the solenoid, you can just reach it below the air filter box, then erase the code and re-scan to see if the code changes to P1470-8. This should confirm that the wiring is OK and the valve has failed.
    Finally the easiest way to replace the valve is to remove the RH headlight after removing the grille.
    This write up is only applicable to T1N’s with the OM611 or OM612 engines with the Vacuum Solenoid controlled Turbo where the solenoid is located under the RH headlight. (NOT the OM647 with electrically controlled Turbo).

    If vvdi prompts “Partition information error, please select the partition size manually”
    Select the partition size EEE:0 sector, DFlash: 128 sectors (32K), press OK
    Read and then save Dflash, i.e E71 xe
    Step 2: Dflash to Eeprom 
    Open Dflash to EEE for FRM3 Software, upload Dflash data just read
    Then convert Dflash to eeprom.
    (You can use free online FRM3 D-Flash to EEPROM converter here as well:
    Save eeprom, i.e: eee_L508991.bin
    Step 3: Write EEPROM
    Back to VVDI Prog software, select Type 8-Others->BMW->FRM E-series XEQ384
    Click Write Partition (will erase Dflash and eeprom data)
    Write EEPROM partition to 16 sectors (4K), DFLASH: 0 sector
    Open EEPROM data just converted from Dflash.
    Click Write tab to write eeprom
    Reset FRM success.
    Install FRM module back to vehicle.

    Check the data. If reads D-Flash as 32K, the FRM module data is corrupted.
    If reads EEPROM data as 4K , FRM module data is not corrupted.
    Uploading data
    Auto saved D-flash to Yanhua Mini ACDP file folder
    Show programming data
    Verifying data
    FRM data recovery completed.
    CG PRO 9S12
    CG Pro repair BMW FRM: confirmed
    1: Check car model
    Car model: BMW E series
    Module: FRM
    Chip: 9S12XEQ384
    2: Turn off the ignition switch and remove the FRM module from the driving left foot of the car
    3: Disassemble FRM module and confirm the SN, type and chip
    4: Open CG PRO software
    Select type, car make and model
    Follow the corresponding wiring diagram to connect FRM module to CG PRO 9S12 programmer via DB25 adapter
    5: Read EEPROM data and save
    6: Write the data has been read or new data after partition operation
    After finishing repair the data, install the FRM module back to the car, and set code for FRM by CGDI BMW key programmer.
    HexTag repair a module FRM3: confirmed
    You don’t have to buy AutoHex, you can buy HexTag separately.
    Step-by-step procedure:
    Go to Microtronik HexProg main menu, software 1.0.6 for example.
    Click on “On Bench Programmer”-> “BMW”-> “FRM”-> “FRM3 E Series”
    Click on “Wiring” to follow it to connect.

    Click on “Read” and get message “ Error on reading EEPROM shows the files in FRM3 is corrupted”.
    Click on “P-FLASH” and then “Read”.
    To check the communication with FRM you can try to read the P-flash.
    Click on “EEE” -> “Read” again, Click on “Repair” and get message “This function is used to repair corrupted FRM EEPROM data. It will try to recover the original data from D-Flash, if it failed please contact Microtronik for help”, go on click on “Repair”.
    FRM EEPROM data has been repaired.
    When it shows the FRM Repair prompt again, just close it.
    Now we can read EEE shows FRM is back to normal state.
    You are advised to code FRM using AutoHex after repair.
    Xprog M repair FRM3: Need Luck
    Xprog M box (UPA as well) is the cheapest device to read fault FRM3 data. But it is not stable as other programmers.
    Some will have these kinds of issues a lot when use Xprog clone to repair FRM’s.
    You can hook the frm back to the xprog and made a backup of the EEE and pflash. Then perform coding using WinKFP/Ncs expert.
    Check guide here:
    There are several devices you can used to perform FRM coding job:  BMW ICOM Engineering software Ncs expert, Launch X431 V,  VVDI BMW, CGDI BMW, Autel Maxisys Pro MS908P etc
