KEYLESS GO function :
If you want to use KEYLESS GO function: the key used to make key must be new and blank key, it can’t be used key. New key must be as the same type and frequency as the original keyless go key. Otherwise it will cannot support keyless go function.
AK500 do ESL: read out original ESL data, generate new key data, write new data .binw back to ESL( now must use that 32GB hard disk database then can renew ESL)
When you deal W203 ECU, if your ECU is simens, it do not have eeprom. Resolution: Read flash of ecu, then make renew. Then use MB STAR to do doing.
