Question: My Kess V2 firmware 4.036 fails to read truck ECUs. Why? And how to rework?
I bought a KESS V2 CLONE, runs on cars and motorcycles, but the protocols are disabled TRUCK. LISTEN TO BE CHANGING NXP and change the firmware to operate in trucks. Could anyone help?
I LEAVE MY DATA KESS.
FW version: 4.036
Serial number: K10033818
Customer Code: C7514
Group Code: C7514
Reply: I guess you bought the wrong type. There are are many kinds of Kess 4.036.
Some cannot support trucks at all.
You should have a small part of kess supports lots of trucks and motorcycles (called truck version)
In the item list, only SE87-K, SE87-CK can work for trucks.
Look at the chart below…details attached
|Kess v2||Kess V2 v4.036
|Kess v2 v4.036
|Firmware||Kess V2 v4.036||Kess V2 v4.036|
(V2.22 version can not connect internet, V2.08 can works with internet)
with a renew button to add tokens
|With 30 tokens,|
|Vehicles||For Cars only;
|Best for Trucks !
If you dont want to buy a new kess v2 programming tool. You can change the firmware to v3.099 with a new nxp LPC2478, new serial and new update with trucks.
Also your china PCB must be preapred to handle the 24v
Personally, You are not advised to do so because of high risk and I hold no responsibilty.
