Maybe try 4800 then.
I probably won't have time to try the different baud rate for a few days. I do have a question though... Where are these error codes being stored?

If I understand correctly when I use the command

kw1281test.exe COM1 9600 15 ReadFaultCodes
I am requesting from controller address 15. The help doesn't mention this location

ADDRESS = The controller address, e.g. 1 (ECU), 17 (cluster), 46 (CCM), 56 (radio)
I don't mean to be a pain. Just trying to understand as best I can

thank you gmenounos! I got my new key working using kw1281test to retrieve the SKC. That was very easy to use. I'm not used to github things being straight forward :)

I used this cable with drivers found on the internet and windows 11


semi off topic but if the SKC does not work in VCDS, its not the wrong code. You have to clear the fault codes in the cluster with VCDS prior to inputting the SKC and it will work fine. My case it was a aftermarket head unit. The cluster throws a code because its not communicating with the stock radio.

New version: https://github.com/gmenounos/kw1281test/releases/tag/v0.79-beta
  • Added GetClusterId command to get the cluster Id (used by the radio to determine if it's been installed in a new vehicle).
  • Some 1J0919 clusters have an SKC so added code to work with them.
GetClusterId, which doesn't appear in the official list of commands and doesn't have much use unless you're a VW radio :), is used to retrieve the 16-bit cluster Id. Usage (note "3F" address instead of "17") :

.\kw1281test.exe COM1 10400 3F GetClusterId

I did everything I could using vag commander I cant retrieve my SKC key. When I connect to the car , select engine then read EEPROM
I get response saying cannot connect to device.

Ah, which car in your fleet are you talking about? Also, this thread is mostly about kw1281test, not VAG Commander, so it might be worth creating a new thread for the issue you're having.

Hello cordial greeting, I wish, first thank for this great program, and second please if you could put support for Immobox, 377 953 257 A, with memory 93c56, VW Pointer, (in Mexico) in Brazil, Parathi, and Valeo Immobox, (Vag PN: 6x0953257) With Memory 24C04, Derby, for thanksgiving, a hug from Mexico.:love::eek: And it worked very well in a Clasico 2013 VDO V75, to retrive Pin code (Mexico).

As far as I know, there isn't a known way to retrieve the SKC from dedicated immobilizer boxes via a KKL cable. You have to open the box and read the EEPROM with a hardware device. If someone knows differently, let me know.

Hello cordial greeting, precisely with the vagtacho, you can extract the pin code, attached a PDF, Vagtacho pin code Pointer, from how to extract it with the vagtacho, for the attention thank you.

That's good to know, but it's for a Kostal immo box, which I don't have and can't even find here in the US.
Thank you very much for answering, but it is also for immobox "Megamos", transponder (ID48), but if you can't, i appreciate the attention anyway, a hug from Mexico. :unsure::cry:o_O

I think so. The following command will read the airbag fault codes (Replace "COM1" with your actual COM port):

.\kw1281test.exe COM1 9600 15 ReadFaultCodes

The following command should clear the airbag fault codes:

.\kw1281test.exe COM1 9600 15 ClearFaultCodes

The current version (0.76-beta) of kw1281test has a bug so it'll give you this error:

Code:
Sending ClearFaultCodes block
Caught: System.InvalidOperationException ClearFaultCodes returned 2 blocks instead of 1
But it should still clear the fault codes and hopefully reset your airbag light.
@gmenounos It took me a lot longer to get back to this than I hoped. Everything worked great. Had to use a baud rate of 10400. Thanks.

It is possible to read and write MagnetiMarelli IAW4 ECU with this tool? Part number 036906034bb

You should be able to connect, read the identification info and read/clear DTCs, but that's about it. kw1281test only supports reading the EEPROM and getting the SKC from EDC15 ECUs. It doesn't currently support writing to any ECUs other than clearing DTCs and changing adaptation/coding.

There is no DumpBeetleMem command. Well there used to be, but it's now named DumpMarelliMem because there are other cars such as Audi TT that use the same command. So you should try:

.\kw1281test.exe COM2 9600 17 DumpMarelliMem 3072 1024

.\kw1281test.exe COM2 9600 17 DumpMarelliMem 14336 2048

and see if either of those commands work. Please report back if either one does.

Not sure what's causing the "System.UnauthorizedAccessException Access to the path 'COM2' is denied." error. Any chance you had the 2 programs trying to access COM2 at the same time? Or maybe ran kw1281test when the cable wasn't plugged in?

Hey! I have a new-to-me Audi A4 that has a rather rare 920 white background cluster. As far as I know, it's a VDO make. My problem is that it does not light up when I twist the ignition, only when I turn the lights on. I know this can be fixed by AudiDashEdit, but I can't seem to read (let alone write) the EEPROM of the cluster. I tried VAG Eeprom programmer 1.19 and kw1281test 0.79 but none of those can seem to read the cluster. Can you help me? I tried 8400, 9600 speeds as well, but they crashed even earlier. The only way I got a response was by using 10400. I also tried DumpMarelliMem, but that doesn't work either.

DumpMarelliMem won't work because your cluster is made by VDO: "ECU: 8D0920932C B5-KOMBIINSTR. VDO D12"

It's not likely that I can add support for that cluster because it seems different than any of the other ones that kw1281test supports. Maybe if someone sends me one, I could do it...

Your best bet might be to get an EEPROM programmer, take apart the cluster and physically read/write the EEPROM as described here: https://www.drive2.com/l/527235342923726903/
