Read EEPROM MCU ( Airbag IMMO BCM Dash ), VVDI PROG or XP400 pro or Orange5?

XP400 pro,Autel XP400, VVDI prog, UPA prog, Orange5, Batronix, xprog...all programmers
are very good at reeding eeprom mcu ( airbag, immobilizer, bcm , dash ).

Purpose: Looking for a best programmer to complete my workshop job: reed eeprom mcu ( airbag, immobilizer, bcm , dash ).


The possible working ECU programmers:

VVDI PROG or XP400 pro or Orange5


Any actual test reports:

  1. VVDI prog…UPA prog…Orange5…Batronix…xprog…all that tools are very good…



  1. I use both VVDIPROG and Orange 5 .
    Personally I like VVDI PROG because it has clear schematics, usual updates.
    The down size of VVDIPROG which I countered so far is problem writing 24cxx eeprom but you can do it with everything.



  1. Both Autel XP400 Pro and XP400 work ok in PC , Autel have software “ATProgrammer” for pc too download in home page and works perfect.

Just follow this article on Where to Download Autel XP400 Programmer Software?




  1. I make order for VVDIPROG ( on the ways ) I buy it only for Mercedes and some Eeprom.
    Autel XP400 pro work whit Pc and cover more Eeprom/MCU/Immobilizer that vvdi (check the picture ), for me its a powerful tool ( it will be my next purchase )



Keep on updating for the reviews…


As you read above, so far many users are using Xhorse VVDI Pro. In the near future, increasing number of ECU tunners will choose Autel XP400 Pro since it is a much more powerful programmer.


Toyota RAV4 2019 odometer correction ok with Iprog clone

 Question: which mcu or eeproom on odometer RAV4 2019? Can I read with VVDI Pro?



processor, don't think VVDI can do it. Carprog original and iProgPro will do them.


Test Reports:

iprogpro clone work 100% pinout is in

2. Iprog clone will do it. I did similar
job same cluster. You must remove needles to access but it is easy. Can do
in one hour or less. If you wondering how to remove needle use two plastic
spoon to pry evenly both side. Work like a charm every time
. You need
confidence and experience to do it and know how much pressure.

CusTomer FAQ:

Q : How can I Know where is my OBD2 port?

A: The On-Board Diagnostics II (OBD-II) port is used to access the vehicle's computer for various tasks, such as emissions tests and diagnostics.
The OBD-II port is where the Hum System is installed so that the network can communicate with the vehicle directly.
After activation, the vehicle owner receives an alert email if the OBD reader has been plugged back in after being unplugged from the port.
For additional assistance in locating your particular model vehicle's OBD port, consult the OBD locator.

The OBD-II port is usually located under the dashboard, beneath the steering wheel column (1 - 3 in the diagram below).
Note If not located beneath the steering column, look for the port in the areas indicated by numbers 4 - 9.

OBD-II port

In this cause,  the SKODA OCTAVIAOBD port is underneath the panel

Review:FLY SVCI j2534 ,vxdiag vcx VCM IDS ,IDS3


Today, I start a topic: FLY SVCI j2534 vs IDS3 vs. vxdiag vcx vs. VCM IDS, thanks to all users’ feedback, they used them to diagnose or program old or new Ford cars.


  1. FLY svci j2534 reviews

it’s their in-house designed and manufactured tool that’s supposed to work with bunch of manufacturer’s software, like Ford’s IDS, Mazda IDS, Toyota TIS, etc.

SVCI J2534

Image source:


1). It’s a powerful tool and works with official. latest ids software


2).I just did a PCM/TCM Module programming on a 2014 fiesta with the svci j2534 today. Honestly I was surprised how well it worked. I would suggest a USB cable. I was having issues before because my laptop USB port did not supply enough current.


3).svci j2534 work good I tested many times program keys, sync immo , remove speedlimiter etc. and work OK.


  1. Rotunda VCM with IDS software review

Let’s start with one customer’s question:

Tried programming an older eec-v pcm 2000 f150, these are j1850 and require 18v feps on pin 13. I keep getting an feps error. When prompted to turn ignition on before it starts programming I see 18v being applied for 5 seconds then 0v and then the error. I tried bench programming it as well.

I ordered another svcij 2534 to see if it was an issue with mine but I haven’t had a chance to test it. I’ll just return it now. It’s weird because it work to diagnose j1850 just fine. And it does apply 18v to program. I haven’t had a problem with CAN vehicles.


Thanks to @sazimam who recommend Rotunda VCM with IDS for the Ford pre 2002:
As for the old, pre 2002 Ford cars – you need to have a Rotunda VCM with an old IDS like version V92 and it’s appropriate offline flash files database installed in a VM since the serial number of the clone device will be 99% blacklisted. See the forum for the VM that works OK, best knowledge about this has a user “scott…” if I remember this great guy well.


  1. Fly IDS3 user bought a replacement from VXDIAG VCX Nano Ford /IDS

Just an info for FLY company. I had an IDS3 from this company and worked well for just two years. After this period it became not supported and the module programming was impossible at all, confirmed by the FLYobd stuff with a sorry and with recommendation to buy SVCI that it’s supported nowadays. Of course I quit and bought a replacement from VCX that works like a charm work the recent SW version of IDS. Having 4 VCX devices now – the oldest one for 6years already and still working well with online updates I have to support them and recommend to buy their products!

In a word, vcx it’s the best quality, three vcx nanos, working as a charm !!

One more time, big thanks to all users’ test reports.
