Customer Feedback for Fgtech, Ktag or Kess V2 to Unlock and Flash PCR 2.1

Customer Feekdbac for Fgtech, Ktag or Kess V2 to Unlock and Flash PCR 2.1

This is a thread- “100% tested /worked bench unlock and flashing (read and write ) on pcr2.1”.

Good information, so i share this thread again.

No one but yourself should take responsibility of what you will try.

Big thanks to gzk in France did the following write-up of reviews of pcr2.1 bench unlock and flashing. Here you go.

i have past last week trying many thinks on pcr2.1 and bench flashing .
everything wrote below is tested and confirmed working by me on 4 ecus /cars, only on Chinese clone not reworked unit : fgtech v54ktag 6.070kess v2 4.036, ksuite up to 2.15

pcr 2.1 need to be as you know unlocked before writing .

I prefer ksuite to work on this ecu (kess or ktag) , ksuite seem to be more stable than fgtech on pcr but work too : i get error with fgtech on one pcr2.1 , i don’t know why , and no problem with ksuite .
Same day i try another pcr with fgtech and no problem , the one fgtech don’t want to work with work flawlessly with ksuite and car run ok .

So if you have both tools , prefer ksuite seem to be more stable .

After you get you ecu unlocked in boot mode , with fgtech just remove boot and left pin connection , and read or write on bench .

On ksuite tools , you can’t read or write with ktag , only unlock . (alientech need to work on it…)
with kess it’s ok , BUT , you can’t use the tricore module !

The problem is that the harness is plugged in the tricore module . so you have to build your own bench cable : just get a obd female plug on a scrapyard , and wire +12 gnd and can h/l (kline is not used but you can wire it it will make a universal bench cable) .

The trick to get communication error free on both fgtech and kess cable is to use a strong external psu .

when the tool id or read or write the ecu , the ecu will perform a kind of reset , and the big cap inside the ecu will go charging , causing a drop in voltage if your psu isn’t strong enough to handle it . THAT WILL CAUSE THE COMM ERROR . That’s the only thing you have to take care .

when i made test with many little psu (like one you get with your tools) i have seen 7 volts drop some time , so the ecu is shutting down and no comm .

you can use computer atx psu modded to work on bench (green wire plugged on ground to power on ) i think anything that can provide +12v 2A will be ok . i didn’t need more than 12v just a stable 12V . 14v unstable will not be ok

that’s why on the car you have no problem , car battery can handle the cap charging current .

There is no immo caused comm error on this ecu , psu is the problem !!

So in conclusion : good psu and obd home made bench cable , remove tricore module on kess = 100% tested bench flashing solution for pcr2.1 .
