MB Star diagnosis C3 and MB SD C4

Category : Uncategorized

The difference between MB Star Diagnostic Tools C3 and MB SD C4 is vey complicated, so i collected some data about them to let you know. Here we take one of my customers’ case as an example to share with you about how to find a right way to deal with MB STAR diagnostic system.

Hello, I am new to STAR diagnosis field. I have been considering all of these questions:

1. All MB STAR system are look similar (Super MB STAR C3, MB STAR C3, SD Connect C4), are they all different?

2. Is the MB STAR diagnostic tool can operate on a Virtual machine? The shops sell Star tools with T30 and Dell 630 are running on Virtual Machine?

3. Can we order a MB STAR (C3 or SD C4) multiplexer + cables and install DAS/XENTRY alone (ie not buy everything HDD)?

4. What is the difference between MB STAR DAS and Xentry software?

That’s a lot of questions, but it is difficult to find clear and precise answers. So I leave it to you! I’m interested in explanations, information, links etc, in French or English, Thanks!!
And following are the vipprogrammer.com customer’s clear & precise answers:

First.
a. All STAR system shares the basic diagnostic software, like DAS, XENTRY, WIS, ST Finder etc. Super has much more software than other star diagnostic systems. Super MB SATR C3 has Develop Mode, Smart TAN code etc software etc that other Star tools does not have.

b. Super MB STAR C3 multiplexer can be updated online.Autonumen.com MB SD C4 and MB STAR C3 do not support update.

c. MB SD Connect 4 is the newer and most respected Star tool for Mercedes models.

d. Best price MB SATR C3 version cannot support Benz trucks. Other Star multiplexers work both cars& trucks.

Second. Yes, MB STAR external software HDD can be loaded on Virtual Machine. If you get T30 or Dell D630 format HDD, you can only loaded it on T30 or Dell D630 laptop. If you buy external HDD, you can install it on Virtual Machine. But internal HDD runs faster than external HDD.

Third. If you need to buy Star Multiplexer without HDD, then go for this: Best quality MB STAR C3 without software HDD. The better suggestion is that you get the MB SD Connectand Dell D630 laptop which software in pre-installed, you did not need to install software by yourself.

Forth. MB STAR DAS: the automatically Diagnosis Assistance System
Xentry: New software released by Benz Company to diagnose new cars.

DAS in old software

XENTRY is newer software
The Star diagnostic tool it self determines which software you are going to use. That means STAR diagnosis will read your vehicle and enter into Xentry first, if your vehicle has to be done via DAS, it will go into DAS, otherwise it will stay in XENTRY)

Multiplexer STAR Compact 3 (Auto-Link Blue STAR) realizes all the functions of official factory BENZ Star2000: reading out and erasing trouble code; reading the real-time data of sensor and actuator; coding and programming. It applies the latest high-tech central gateway system of car model 221/211 and 203 with software version updated to October of 2006, can enter all the Benz cars, such as autobus truck, saloon car, sports car, smart car and so on.

How to DIY MB Star Diagnosis

Category : Uncategorized

This is a post I read on the forum and find that it get lots of good comments, so I think there may be more people need and post on the blog for sharing.

I would help out a few Autonumen.com MB brothers with a couple star diagnostic tutorials…

Note: this is DAS/XENTRY Software with mb star diagnosis.
Free download: http://down.mbstarsgop.com/download/xentry.zip

First, Lowering the car.
Get to the 211 Section.

You will get to the main menu

Then go to Function performed by more than one control unit.

Then Chassis

Then Level adj

Then Suspension

And here is where people have problems, they just go to actuations and then lower it, IT WILL NOT STAY LOWERED this way, you have to go to initial startup

Then Initial with manual settings

Then F2

Here you will see a screen that shows the voltages which correspond to the height of the vehicle. they must be within the given ranges in the left hand column. use the + and – buttons to lower the car (In my screenshot I am in the car with a friend in the back seat, so that is why it is at 3.27, it should not exceed 3) Then hit F2

Enter in these inclination angles and if the car is within the voltages supplied in the page before, the car will accept the new lowered setting, if not it will reject it.

Now, how to activate the unlock and lock beep (honestly, one of the best mods to do if you have an older model e55)
First Control units

Then Body

Then rear SAM

Then Control unit adaptations

Then national version of ATA function

At this screen you will see a pull down menu with a list of different regions on it. The only ones you need to worry about are USA with buzzer and Netherlands. If you choose USA, i will give you three short quick beeps when you lock the car and one short when you unlock it. Netherlands will give you three longer beeps when you lock the car and one long when you unlock it. Personal preference on which one you like. Then hit F3

Then F3(YES)

Hope this helps out some people. I really did not find a good DIY for Star Diagnostics, so I thought I would help out!
