Tips on TIS2000 disc for ECM updates

I used the tis 2000 disc for ecm updates.


since the TIS200 has all the firmware needed for cars up to 2009, and does not need to connect to GM to pull them down.
As for the 2010 to 2013 cars, need to have a working account with GM since it will need to pull these firmware files from GM over the web, since these needed files will not be part of the 3 discs that come with it.

Hence in 2010, GM switch over to web base programming from computer based Tis2000 , and was the end of the TIS 2000 having the needed files internal for the cars from that point forward.

So if you have a 2010 or later vet, then just get a $40 subscription to TDS SPS for 2 years, and the Tech II will be used in pass through mode for over the web programming instead .

Myself, have a Auto Scanner Tool TIS2000 built into a VM shell on full working XP software on a win 10 machine so it can connect to the internet, have a GM account, so will pull any firmware that is needed/it does not have for later 2010 cars, from GM over the web.

What do you personally use DTS Monaco for

DTS Monaco is really a program for softening. Mercedes-Benz is dealing with some corporation for establishing some some software’s for the handle units fixed on the cars. verify the web side of this corporation and you will fully grasp what they are doing. My advise to you if you wish to play with this program you must be specialist together with the cars application and programming other wise you might destroy it.

For a lot of, Star Diagnoses will be the ideal application utilised on automobiles.
Coding performs incredibly great a simple, because for all coding-points it shows a “coding description”. With Vediamo you can not sort the list and have to make “right click” on any coding-point to read the description.
So, in case you look for specific things or “browse” by way of the functions in the ECU, Monaco is much more comfortable.

Btw, vediamo unlocks units similar as dts. Monaco can save codings in one particular click and upload them in one click also specially on MVCI smr-d units, which vediamo cant handle. Rather useful, but requires really powerful program

Attachment: DTS-monaco vs. Vediamo

Where do icarscan reset the service intervals?

The ICarScan Launch software is not as intuitive as one would think. Where do you go in the menu to reset the service intervals? Do you know if it will reset brake pad warning? My pads are fine-if so, do you know where that reset is?


The brake pad warning is automatically reset when you have a working warning sensor. ONCE triggered the sensor MUST BE REPLACED to turn the light off. It is worn through by the brake rotor when the pad backing gets close to the rotor. Your pads may be fine – but if the light is on – at least one sensor isn’t. The sensors are usually replaced with pads – they’re difficult to remove intact once the pads have some heat/time on them, so replacement is considered SOP.

I’m not sure how intuitive you would think the software should be – I personally find it easier to use than the Durametric. The only annoying thing I find is the action of your phones (Android phones) back button is inconsistent. But that’s true for almost any Android app or website, so nothing new there. At least this asks you if you’re sure you want to exit the program before doing it, and reminds you to take the OBD-II dongle when you’re done.

I’ll have to take a look at where the reset functions are for service reminders – I seem to recall them being fairly high up in the menu hierarchy, not difficult to find.


I recommend that you buy icarscan on Obd2 tool website. They are cheap, shipping is fast, and after-sales service is also very good. I have been using it for a year and there is no problem with the quality of the product.

Engine Vacuum Leak Symptoms and Solutions


If your vehicle has an engine vacuum leak, the air-fuel ratio in your engine will be higher than 14.7:1, also called a “lean” mixture. This ratio means that there is too much air in your engine, and as a result, the engine will run poorly or not at all. If you suspect that your vehicle has a vacuum leak, read on to learn the most common symptoms, as well as how to fix them.

Common Symptoms of an Engine Vacuum Leak

Engine vacuum leaks are commonly associated with the following symptoms, but keep in mind that this is not an autel diagnostic scanner.

Engine Running Problems

An engine with a vacuum leak could potentially run normally, but it may idle faster than usual, idle roughly, misfire, hesitate, or stall. You may find your vehicle doesn’t accelerate as well as it typically does. Major intake leaks might prevent the engine from starting at all.

Fuel Economy and Emissions

The lean air-fuel ratio will burn hotter and increase the generation of oxide emissions, such as nitrogen oxide (NOx) and sulfur oxide (SOx). Even if the check engine light isn’t triggered, the vehicle may still fail emissions testing. Drivers would also note reduced fuel economy as the engine controller attempts to compensate by adding more fuel. The evaporative emissions control system (EVAP) also depends on vacuum to function, so a vacuum leak in an EVAP valve or tubing might set an emissions diagnostic trouble code (DTC).

Check Engine Light

The engine control module (ECM) continuously monitors the environment in the engine. Using the manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor or mass air flow (MAF) sensor, among others, the ECM modulates fuel injector pulse, spark timing, and valve timing. If there is a vacuum leak, the ECM may be unable to compensate. Short-term or long-term fuel trim, STFT or LTFT on a scan tool Car Repair Software, might show something like +10% or +25% as the ECM attempts to compensate for unmetered air. P0171 and P0174 are common Fuel System Lean DTC.

Engine Damage

At its worst, long-term driving with a vacuum leak, elevated temperatures generated by running a lean air-fuel ratio could result in engine damage. Lean mixtures can detonate, damaging pistons and bearings. Higher than normal exhaust temperatures can also lead to catalytic converter meltdown.

Other Issues

Depending on where the vacuum leak is located, it could cause a variety of other problems. Some fuel pressure regulators are vacuum modulated, and so would jump to high pressure when vacuum is lost. This could result in fuel trim problems and a check engine light, possibly with Fuel System Rich DTCs, such as P0172 or P0175. Some older power steering systems idle-up the engine using a vacuum switching valve (VSV), but a vacuum leak might stall the engine during a parking maneuver. Many vehicles use a vacuum-actuated brake booster, reducing braking effort, but a vacuum leak here might make it harder to stop your car.

Identifying an Engine Vacuum Leak

There are several methods you can use to identify a vacuum leak. Start with a vacuum hose diagram, which you can find in a repair manual or sometimes on a sticker under the hood. Using one of the following methods, finding the vacuum leak might manifest itself as a change in engine speed or idle smoothness. Smaller leaks may only manifest themselves as fluctuating STFT readings on a OBD2 vehicle scanner.

Visual Check

A visual check is a good way to start, particularly with vacuum hoses and tubes. Exposed to extreme under-hood temperatures and oxygen in the atmosphere, rubber vacuum hoses and plastic vacuum tubes can become stiff or brittle, easily cracking or breaking. Similarly, rubber engine intake tubes can also become brittle, cracking and opening a way for unmetered air to get into the system. Physically manipulating these components with the engine running might reveal the leak.

Water Method

This is the simplest and cheapest method, as it utilizes just a simple spray bottle of water. With the engine running, spray water around suspected vacuum leak areas, such as vacuum hose fittings, intake manifold gaskets, and throttle plate bushings. A vacuum leak will suck in water, temporarily “sealing” the leak. This tiny amount of water won’t do any damage to your engine.

Carb Cleaner

Another method is to use a can of carburetor cleaner or intake cleaner spray. Please note that carb cleaner is flammable, so caution must be exercised and a fire extinguisher must be kept close at hand.. Sparingly spray the cleaner to suspect vacuum leak areas, while the engine is idling. If the leak is found, the engine will likely smooth out as the flammable mixture makes up for the lean air-fuel ratio.


This is a time-tested method for finding vacuum leaks, working on a principle similar to using carb cleaner. Use a small unlit propane torch, such as used for brazing or soldering, and a length of rubber hose. Poke the end of the hose around suspect vacuum leak areas with the engine idling. If the leak is found, the engine will probably speed up or smooth out as the flammable gas “compensates” for the lean AFR. Again, please note that propane is flammable, so caution must be exercised and a fire extinguisher must be kept close at hand.

Mechanic’s Stethoscope

Using a mechanic’s stethoscope with the probe removed and a length of hose, poke around suspected leak areas while the engine is running. Don’t forget to check around the vacuum brake booster, both in the engine bay and behind the brake pedal. Smaller leaks might be difficult to pinpoint, but a trained ear can pick up the distinctive hissing or whistling sound emitted by a vacuum leak.

Bubble Test

If you have access to an air compressor with a good regulator, introduce no more than 2 psi air into the intake with the engine off. (Under 2 psi is critical, as you can damage sensors or valves or create new leaks with higher psi.) Seal off the throttle body and exhaust, then use a soapy-water mixture to spray down the engine. Vacuum leaks may be revealed by the mixture bubbling up at the site of the leak.

Smoke Machine

This is the most expensive and safest method, but usually yields the best results. Not everyone has access to these expensive tools, but it may be necessary if the vacuum leak eludes you. With the engine off, plug the intake and exhaust and start the smoke machine injecting smoke into the intake. The harmless smoke, vaporized mineral oil, might take a couple minutes to fill the system, and will then start looking for ways to get out. A tiny plume of smoke will reveal vacuum leaks, so it’s best to do this test in an area free of drafts or wind.

Once you’ve identified the source of the leak, the obvious solution is to repair it, but it isn’t always a simple fix. Vacuum hoses can be replaced easily, as can sensor or tube O-rings, and some valves are also easy to replace. Other vacuum leaks might be more difficult and time-consuming, such as intake manifold gaskets or a faulty brake booster. As always, if you feel like the job is beyond you, check with your local trusted mechanic for professional assistance. Don’t forget to reset the check engine light when you’re done making repairs.

How to Diagnose BMW MSD80 DME with INPA software

Purpose: To see the BMW Diagnostic Tool options is working or not, on 525i with an engine N53.

Diagnostic tool: BMW ICOM A2/ICOM Next with ISTA

Important: compare possibilities of ISTA D with INPA.

Vehicle information:
Car: BMW 5 series E60 sedan 525i
Year: 2007/09
Engine: N53

The test:

ISTA-D is identifying the vehicle


and reading FASTA information


the basic menu is available.

Service procedures and data, intended for the engine, are available in two groups:

a) basic menu: Vehicle management/Service function/Powertrain/Engine Electronics
b) Call up ECU functions menu of the engine management unit

In the basic menu you can choose:

a) viewing data correction of cylinder Rough run and Stoichiometric mixture;
b) coding the injector data;
c) coding new NOx catalytic converter and NOx sensor, activate Desulphation session;
d) delete adaptations;
e) perform misfire/Rough run test for cold engine and view the “opinion” of DME, which engine has problems with smooth running.

In DME Call up menu you can choose:

a) view live data;
b) perform activation tests for several knots.

Now, start the review with DME Call up menu.

To enter it, click with Mouse on DME icon on the “tree” of units and press the button “Call up ECU function”.


Call up menu contains three basic choices:

a) identification: basic data of ECU unit;
b) diagnosis scan: live data;
c) component triggering: activation/test blocks.


“Identification” menu is very clear, so we move to diagnosis scan menu – content of it is seen in the image above.

The content of Component triggering submenu :


Unfortunately, the amount of test blocks is tiny. As can be seen, it’s possible to test the pressure of the low-pressure pump, in the injectors menu: switch off any of cylinders, switch on the water pump and electric fan.

Blocks of engine performance modes, Lambda probes, generator, VANOS, EGR and many other important knots are not available.

Diagnosis scan submenu.

a) fuel pressure (high pressure);
b) fuel pressure (low pressure);
c) idle;

allows to view exact values of the parameter and are not very interesting. Only remark (it refers to all analog/live data values, displayed by ISTA):

a) data representation is in small size, it’s hard to see the data, for example, during the driving session;
b) main part (with rare exceptions) of data have no reference value, no min/max limits displayed; no explanation for specific data;
c) bar type indicators are not used – they would ease the viewing of variables.


The content of Diagnosis scan submenu, choosing ”Motor operating values”:



To read the required parameters, they have to be chosen (it/they will color in blue) and press the button ” Read status”.

Example, how does a viewing of live data look’s, using ISTA D:


Unfortunately, data are opaque – there is no visible separation, no ref/min/max limits, no bar indicators.

Several disadvantages of menu:

a) oil pressure – no required oil pressure displayed;
b) no PWM for keeping up the pressure is displayed;
c) data of detected pressure are displayed with an offset of -1000hPa.

The content of submenu, choosing operating values of the N53 series engine:

Live data of these parameters:


This submenu has “several” disadvantages:

a) the engine performance mode is displayed, but no Lambda values, with which the engine works, can be seen;
b) no possibility to overlook data during the desulphation process;
c) no PWM both for the low-pressure and high-pressure system can be seen – no information of system’s ability to hold the pressure;
d) no Offset values for NOx sensor data are visible, no reported Lambda values (wide-band and narrow-band).

Data of “Operational smoothness values” submenu:


In this menu, Rough run value min/max values ( +/-200) are displayed. According to the software release, in case of the normal engine performance, the values fluctuate in limits of +/-0.2, for some releases – only within limits of 0.02. It means, 0.1 or even 0,01% of max displayed! Conclusion – these indicated values are just confusing the user!

It’s not even worth to mention, that math, which would describe the coefficient ”engine order 0.5/1.0/1.5”, is not even present.

Content of ”Oxygen-sensor control” submenu:


This submenu has “several” disadvantages:

a) multiplicative adaptations are not displayed at all;
b) Lambda value for wide-band probes is not calculated/displayed; no description, how to interpret “voltage” indications;
c) PWM of probe heating is not displayed, from the status description it’s not clear, is the probe being heated or is already heated;
d) no Nernst resistance for probes is displayed, chemical activity of probes cannot be seen; no manual control of probe heating is possible;
e) the engine performance mode (requested/confirmed) is not displayed;
f) required Lambda values and their conformity to measured are not displayed.

No data available about:

a) injectors: learnbits;
b) injectors: real time values (opening time; multiplicative adaptations; voltage; energy, etc);
c) injectors: mechanical and chemical tests/results.

Submenu ”States” contains some of the status bits:


Unfortunately here the viewing of engine Live data ends. As you can see, the amount of displayed data is many times less than with INPA, and displayed data cannot be viewed easily.

Vehicle management/Service function/Powertrain/Engine electronics menu,


Idle speed/Idling quality submenu:


Rough running values:


Rough run values for correctly performing engine display lasting disbalance, therefore it’s not clear, what are these data. Possibly – applied Offset type corrections for each injector to reach smooth performance.

Stochastic irregular operation data:


Also regarding these data – no information. In ideal scenario – all values are targeting 0? Or, most probably: all values are targeting 50; increased value – decreased mechanical efficiency.

We can only pay our condolences to a specialist of the dealer center, who has to work with such “data”.

Delete adaptations submenu:


Unfortunately – no information, which menu deletes which group of adaptations.

Also, information regarding stored error messages is more than modest:


For example, in the existing situation, INPA freeze-frame will additionally display:

a) engine performance mode (Homogeneous/Homogeneous lean/Stratified charge);
b) engine status (work or heating up);
c) offset, multiplicative adaptation and integrator values, etc.

Data for separate knots can be seen into appropriate functionality blocks, as an example, we will view test block of VANOS:


After choosing this test module, the menu opens:


The detected position of VANOS can be seen:


It is possible to perform test block, which tests the ability of VANOS knot to maintain the required position in one, fixed position:


After performing such tests, the diagnostics specialist has to take the decision by himself, does the VANOS performs correctly – ISTA displays following menu of suggestions:



As you can see, this menu doesn’t give exact answers.

Additionally, there are no possibilities to choose the position of camshaft manually, evaluate the PWM of the valve, it’s jittering.

The situation with, for example, checking the oil pressure is even sadder. There is no possibility to compare the inquired and measured oil pressure, no possibility to evaluate the PWM of oil valve. No test block, which could be started. Only testing option, offered by ISTA: evaluation of PWM of the valve with an oscilloscope. And, if rectangular impulses are observed, ISTA reports, that everything is in working condition!
