User feedbacks on OBDSTAR X-100 PRO, SuperOBD SKP900 and Tango:


Very good for Asian and American cars is SKP-900. But I also use Tango. Tango is excellent, but can’t do cars remote locking for example and is all for off car programming (needing XPROG etc)


I use X100 pro OBDSTAR. I'm very happy with it. Not perfect but very good!


I have x-100 pro and it’s nowhere near as good as SKP900, also Tango in my opinion is much better for off car programming. SKP900 has very good OBD coverage especially American cars. Tango is superb for all difficult and on the bench. Moreover Tango is very good at EEPROM Applications.



There is no a perfect key programmer that can do all car keys in all occasions. But you can find a better one which is good and useful for your own usage. Hope this blog helps.

FORScan scanner solve P1622 error code on Ford Focus 2008 EDC16
Category: General
Tags: Forscan scanner obd2 scanner

Actually I was a beginner of FORScan scanner, recently I got problem when using Forscan, I asked help on the forum and some kind friends offer me these answers.


My Question: My Focus on a P1622 Immobiliser ID wrong and engine start but in safe mode. What are the often cases that exists on my ford car?

Forum member Answer: Instrument cluster (IPC) is primary PATS module for PATS on Focus Mk2, PCM is secondary. If IPC is replaced, keys should be programmed and IPC should be matched (paired, synchronized with PCM). If PCM is replaced, IPC new keys should not be programmed, just synchronized with the new PCM. So typical scenario is that user replaces IPC or PCM and has to program PATS after it. However, as usually, P1622 should not appear after IPC replacement. This sounds like a more serious problem with immobilizer. So it would be good to know what was replaced in PATS and why.


My Question: Can Forscan do the job?

Forum member Answer: FORScan should be able to program keys to IPC and pair IPC with PCM in case of normal ignition key PATS.


My Question: I have had an ELM327 adapter. Is it ok for working with Forscan?

Forum member Answer:

*Any good ELM327 should be ok.

* I bought a modified elm327 to work with forscan and it works well.


My Question: Is the P1622 code can be cleared with Forscan with pin code?

Forum member Answer:

Most likely the code cannot be erased unless the problem is resolved and source of it is removed.


Finally I want to confirm that if you have some troubles with Immo or CAN on focus TDCI 2008, you should VERIFY the cable behind the dash!!

It was defective and made troubles on CAN when in certain position…

Fix it with glue and start…. Good soft forscan works very well in HS/MS with elm modified.

BMW ICOM A2 NCS Expert change miles to km on BMW Z4 M3 X3
Category: General
Tags: bmw icom a1 bmw icom a2

Found lots of threads about BMW changing miles to km. Here i would share my experience of odometer programming.


I did a few changes on my Z4, M3 and X3 through ICOM A2 emulator running with NCS Expert.

Worked great!

I did on the Z4:
– open/closing Top with key
– Open/closing top doesn’t stop when start driving
– disabled belt beep.
– blinking lock/ unlock car
– LED in mirror
– disable Miami setting (locks close when faster than 15 km/h)
– full moon brake light when hard braking
– Brake-Force-Light. third brake light flashes when ABS kicks in.

As I remember there was a setting for miles and km/h. I need to check the SW_PSW.trc file.. I might have it in an old email

I have researched here and there for a great functional car diagnostic tool, finally I choose XTOOL X100 PAD, now I have received and I will tell you why I purchase it. Hope it offer reference for you.
These are photos of x100 pad:
xtool-x-100-pad-tablet-key-programmer-1 xtool-x-100-pad-tablet-key-programmer-2

Let’s begin to talk about it from the function. According to my research, X-100 PAD is a tablet with the latest technologies to perform key programming and you can use it to do these things:
*key programming
*Mileage adjustment
*Oil service light reset
*Timing belt service light reset
*Tire pressure warning light reset
*Reads keys from immobilizer’s memory
* PIN Code Reading
*EPB reset
*Throttle body reset
*DPF reset
*Battery reset
*Steering angle calibration
*OBD-II diagnosis
*and more
Very comprehensive function, according to some forum friends, these functions work well on Europe& US cars such as Audi, VW, Ford, Porsche etc. The price $449 is affordable for me. To think that most garages charge $400.00 just to scan my car, at the price I can scan my car and do much more job with this intelligent diagnostic equipment.

Next I will share my experience with you:
This tool should be activated before using, so you should input activation code, product serial number, nickname, login account (email address or cell phone number is OK) and password to activate it.
Note: each device has a serial number and activation code, like this:
Then the system will then save it and the diagnostic application will start after activation, you need to study these function for some time.
This is special functions interface
Exhaust Gas Treatment (DPF) Features interface
EEPROM Adapter Features interface
And I find an interesting function–-remote diagnosis
I no longer have to worry about how to operate, once I encounter problems and not able to solve them, I can open this application and ask for remote assistance.
If you need to use this, you should click Remote Diagnosis and open the TeamViewer interface. Generate and display device ID. Notice that your partner will also need to download and install TeamViewer. Finally inform your partner of your TeamViewer ID and password to enable them to begin remote access of X-100 PAD.

A summary, I am satisfied with this X100 PAD diagnostic tool, it helps me a lot on mileage adjustment oil reset, thanks it!
