Q: I want to do these two functions: Read and write NEC KEY via Infrared and Fast erase NEC CHIP via socket, can AK500+ do it well
A: For the function " Read and write NEC KEY via Infrared ", it just can old keys for this function, can do new keys.
For the function " Fast erase NEC CHIP via socket ", the key chip should be NEC chip, and can be renewed.
Q: I have just tried to renew nec chip,this time without any chip on the socket,but it is still trying to erase,should i not get error message because there is no chip on socketwhy is it still trying to erase when there is no chip on socket
A: AK500 can not renew NEC chip via socket. You must remove the key chip, and put the nec chip to chip dashborad to renew it.
Q: I can not find 95xxx from A500+. Because I don't have 95 adapter to connect to 95xxx on the AK500+ main unit, i can not read the ECU and ESM data. From the video, there is someone telling that the 95xxx is on the package box, but i have not found it. Please provide me a 95xxx chip adapter, or i can not use it normally.
A: Now AK500+ SKC does't have 95xxx chip adapter, you don't need to remove ECU with SKC. Only old AK500 has 95XXX. It is easier to use for AK500+ with SKC calculator than AK500 with 95xxx chip adapter.
Q: How to write keys with AK500+ KEY Programmer
A: You can write keys step by step as following:
3.Connect the EIS according to the connction picture
5.Save the data
6.Open SKC key bulider file
7.Download EIS Dump File
8.Generate Key file
9.Put blank key to IR socket
Q: How to make new Benz key
A: It is different for making new benz keys and old mecedes benz keys, please do it as following steps:
-Desolder CPU 1 from EIS
-Read data from EIS - CPU 1
-Open SKC Calculator
-Dowload the bin file
-Select keys for calculating result
-Calculate keys (About 7-10 minutes)
-Close SKC Calculator
-Open AK500+ again
-Click Step 4 to write the key option via IR
-Insert the key
-Load key dump file
-Click on programming
Q: AK500+ key programmer can do used benz keys how to erase the data from the old mercedes keys can AK500+ do this
A: There are some old keys which can not be reused again. If your old benz key can be reused, first you need to remove the chip from the key, then you can erase the data by renewing the key.
Q: How to read EIS DATA
A: First you need imopt EIS data to SKC, then get the key information, after writing the key data to the new keys, then you can start the car.
Here are the customer solutions to Mercedes Benz AK500 key programmer not running smartkey.exe problem. Hope it help if you are looking for the solution. YOU ARE AT YOUR RISK.
When I install software everything was work properly. After some time, I try open and write key, but not starting smartkey.exe or which can’t write nec I.C, just in this moment I hear a beep windows error sound… any ideas?
I install ak500 software on Windows XP SP3 without any anti virus program.
The first attempt:
Still have problems with smartkey.exe
i installed it on win7 ultimate 64 bit and everything works as it should, but cann’t get it to work on xp sp3 32bit, installed the xp fresh and the ak500+ software when it starts doesn’t even search for the hardware.. but smartkey.exe when started from installatin folder works now.. The main window pops right up and only firmware update is availible. Drivers are correctly installed and in device manager is also everything ok, tried com 1, 2 and 3.. same
I struggleed with this issue for a quite of time. Ok you can make a few things here. A forum member helped me to solve that. I had to use win xp SP2, and he sent me the software for ak500, not ak500+ !! The installation is different and when you install the ak500 software it adds some files wicj the ak500+ install didn’t. So after that smartkey.exe did work and when i started ak500+ also. So it was something missing in the install that i got with my device. BUT i figure it out that i need smartkey.exe ONLY for writeing the nec in the zif socket. But what i did not try and what sure has to work also without smartkey.exe was soldering the virginised nec on the key pcb and write the key via IR port !
So try that mate but the install of the old ak500 software should solve your issue.
(If you need the old AK500 software, please contact your dealer)
Install fresh xpsp3 black edition, apply all patches of this xp, install ak500 software, install drivers and smartkey will work.
All Ak400 and Ak500 software work, but
1. SmartKey program start only on IDE hdd, no any other work!
2. have problem with comport some time not found, this come after clear driver installation
3. for ak500 ESL 203 use any drive (local, usb) but Volume must be AK500
Program new key on MB w203 with AK500 key programmer
Step a) open eis if the mcu is hc07 familly then desolder the first one .
Step b) Put it in the ak500 holder , be carfull with the point of the chip .
Step c) Choose the correct mask in software for the mcu .
Step d) Read the mcu and save the file .
Step e) Open the skc and load the bin file that you read .
Step f) Choose the key number that you see free.
Step g) Solder the mcu back in eis .
Step i ) Write the key if is new by infarent holder .
Step k ) Put the key in eis and start the car
