Users test: VVDI MB on W210 W203 W639 W220 W215 W169 before 2008 year

Did a user experience survey and found many users feedback they use VVDI MB tool to program key for old Mercedes Benz models successfully. By obd or not? Go on reading.

Topic from Facebook:


Here are the results:


1 . W639 worked perfect 2008 and 2009


  1. I tested vvdi mb with W203 work perfect, year: 2001, 2003 & 2004

but not by OBD , Only by IR. The CGDI MB claims to be able to be done via OBD (For example: W203 with W209 EZS all keys lost, done in the car about 70mn: Successful.)


  1. W210 1998 year CLK all key lost power adapter 17min boom 😉 password calculation perfect.


  1. 2004 W639 all keys lost. Used VVDI PROG to get dump and VVDI MB for key program.

PS: If you are looking for cheaper option: CG-Pro and CG-MB can do the same job.

Instruction: W639 new key programming with CG-Pro and CG-MB


  1. Never had any fails read with prog and calculate with mb prog.


  1. Mb tool is always on point. it has never failed. ts a great tool.


  1. I make key on w210 and 203 before 2005 read eis on PIN OUT OR DESSOLDER mcu


  1. Read password on EIS W169 2009 FAILED. Must read it on pin out or vvdi prog adapter.


I’ll have a ongoing update for what VVDI MB can do for old Mercedes Benz models via OBD.
