Review from our customers:
1) I purchased one and it arrived within 7 days, tracking was included. I thought I has to replay about this clone kess v2 kit. I tested it on Renault Megane III valeo ECU at the first day, ID read fine, Writing ECU fine.
Then I tested on a piaggio mp3 scooter using K-line.
ID read fine
Reading ECU was fine.
Writing ECU was fine.
See picture below..
So I am satisfied with the purchase.
2) I have installed the Software version: V2.13. Firmware version: V4.036 with the help of the video in the webpage. It’s important to strictly follow the instructions on the video. I have make a mistake at first install and got the EEFFACE error. I have send mail to vendor. Quick response by mail and now all works fine. Tested yet on EDC15C2 on table, read and write. Next week I will test on more ECU’s. The Kess is more userfriendly than FGTech galletto. I’ll buy also the Ktag from this seller. Good service and quick delivery.
3) I have done 15 cars without a problem and for 100 euro (V2.12). I think it is a steal. As for the trucks section if I remember right it is open but cause I don’t have interest in trucks. I did not pay attention to this section. But I will test and report back.
4) I have installed V2_13 KESS and already tested on EDC15C2 in boot mode. Reading was OK, writing was OK as well. Tomorrow I have to do a DPF off of a Touareg 2.5l from 2009. I checked it is in the car list.
5) I tested in 4 cars for the time being and everything worked fine. I checked the truck section and can confirm that nearly all of the trucks are grayed out, except for Vans. I have not had the chance to test on 24v trucks Mainly Fords, Mercedes Sprinters are enabled.
