Good ECU Programmer Tool to read EDC17

Which EDC17 Reader works well for a good price?

BDM100, FGTECH 54, MPPS v16, kess v2.06 or any other tools/ solution is optional?

Let’s hear from some experienced ECU tunners.

–          For EDC16 iam using BDM100 from china.

–          I USE FGTECH 54 AND IS OK. no problem.

–          I read one EDC17 in Audi A4 with MPPS v16.

–          Another EDC17 I read in boot mode with galletto v54 good china clone… Do job perfectly.

When you have problem, just try this way: uninstall all fgtech software. Install basic version. Connect tool and give drivers. Unplug tool. Remove basic. Install Win7 version. Plug tool + drivers. Done.

–          I use the kess v2.06 reworked pcb and fw updated, like 2.08 what is available…is great tool, recently KESS FM V4.036 available, haven’t test it, but I think it will do. As told by customer service, the older fw kess v2 is available to update firmware by returning back the main unit to them and charge $89, but the QC number has to be ended with 015.

–          I use byteshooter does most ecus obd2, inclusively edc17 first models until 2009, first generation. For late edc17 byteshooter reads very good on table, only resistor adding is needed. If you want good tool go Byteshoter. Never had issues with it. Galetto v54 reworked pcb works good too.

–          CMD CAN Flasher dont can read write all edc17 by obd, only a few.

Cheap MPPS V16 for EDC15 EDC16 EDC17 from China

I bought a very cheap MPPS V16 for EDC15 EDC16 EDC17, and of course a clone one from China recently. The tool cost me €109 and arrived at my garage in 5 days. It came with a cable and a CD, which contained the MPPS software. I have been used the tool for a few weeks, and I’d like to say something about it.


About installation
The supplier provided me with an installation tutorial video, so there was no problem for me to install the software. One thing I do not like about it is that the driver for the MPPS software should be installed manually. Hmm, not smart enough. By the way, like most Chinese OBD2 tools, the software is only compatible with Windows XP SP2 system.

About using experience
According to the manual book, the tool can program more than a thousand of ECU chips. But I doubt if the clone one can work that well. So I have tested it on 10 cars with different chips, and here is the result:
Audi A4 1.8 Turbo Bosch ME7.5 K-Line, worked OK.
Audi Q5 2.0 TDI Bosch EDC17CP14 CAN, worked OK.
Bmw Series 3 320 2.0D Bosch DDE3.0 K-Line, worked OK.
Bmw Series 5 530 3.0D Bosch DDE4.0 K-Line, worked OK.
Ford Focus 1.6 TDCI Bosch EDC16C3 K-Line\CAN, worked OK.
Volvo S80 3.0T Bosch ME7.0 K-Line, worked OK.
VW Passat 2.0 TDI Bosch EDC16U1 K-Line, worked OK.
VW Golf 2.3L Bosch M5.92 K-Line, worked OK.
Peugeot 308 1.6 Turbo Bosch MED17.4 CAN, worked OK.
Mercedes CLK CLK 2.7 CDI Bosch EDC15C6 K-Line, worked OK.
Mercedes Klasse-B B200 2.0 CDI Bosch EDC16C32 K-Line/CAN,
worked OK.
Honda Accord 2.2 CDTi Bosch EDC16C7 K-Line, worked OK.

About language
This obd2 tool I bought is a French version, very easy to use.

The tool is good overall considering the cheap price. But it would be better if it can program Toyota chips. No Toyota ECU chips are listed on the support list. I tried to use it on a 08 Camry, and the tool would not work. Anyways, the tool is worth the money. No issues happen to my MPPS so far.

Nice shopping experience with MPPS V16

I have ordered a MPPS V16 ECU chip tuning on And this time, I would like to share my real shopping experience here. Of course, the reason why I want to share the experience is related to the fact that the tool indeed performs well on my car.

In fact, a MPPS V16 may cost so much. I heard from my friend who bought one from Amazon, which cost almost US$450.00. This tool on Eobd2 only needs to pay €169.00 (i.e. US$213.00). To my surprise, I find that my MPPS V16 work as well as his tool.

2. Good comments on MPPS V16

While I was still worried about the deal at that time, so I tried to have a look at the customer comments. Almost all the customer feedback is not bad. Of course, I also have good understanding of the device itself. The ECU chip tuning tool for EDC15, EDC16 and EDC17 inkl checksum is a professional one that working though obd2 port, easy operation, high efficiency and multi-language are all its highlights.

3. Nice service

And now, nice service is no doubt, what people attach great importance on. When I test it for my car, I was confronted several questions that all well solved by the seller with patience. I am very enjoyable for a nice shopping experience here.
