VVDI2 vs Tango: VVDI2 Wins in OBD, VAG, BMW

Topic: VVDI2 or Tango? Which is better for auto key programming?

Program keys: VVDI2 via OBD, Tango from dump

If you are going to make keys from dump and reading with a programmer buy Tango.
If you are looking to make keys over OBD buy VVDI2 is a good tool for BMW CAS/MB EZS. (read and write MB IR key)
Tango more features, VVDI2 good for OBD
Better buy VVDI2 with VVDI Prog
I personally prefer Tango good support and more features, xhorse it is also a very good for obd.
If you buy VVDI2 i also recommend complement with VVDI programmer.

Tango has guides with pics, free with standard tool

I don’t know VVDI2… but I have tango and it’s excellent so long as you have good programmers too like xprog etc. Most makes/models have guides with pics. Also many makers are free with standard tool and you can just add when you need

VVDI2 + Tango better than Zed full

If you mean original Tango and VVDI2 full…than this group will be better than zed full, thats my opinion…but there is a lot of car that you will need to remove BCM’s, immo’s…etc because vvdi2 and tango are more eeprom based tools, except vvdi2 making bmw and vag over obd2, skp900 and obdstar are obd2 tools but cant help you with fiat, opel, renault and with some few brands

VVDI2 + VVDI Prog good for VAG + BMW

If you looking only for VAG + BMW , then VVDI2 and VVDI prog is way to go. No need any other tool. In VVDI2 you have also programmer similar to Tango that you can make keys buy dump, but 90% of VAG and BMW can be done by OBD in VVDI2.

VVDI2 = VVDI + Tango + …

VVDI 2 includes all the VVDI functions, the function of Tango…. has improved remote control generation and chip identification, and also enhanced the coil’s stability
Moreover, you don’t have to connect VVD2 with a computer or other devices to identify chip or detect remote frequently.

VVDI2 wins! Wins in OBD making keys! Wins in VAG + BMW key programming.

How to renew BMW remotes with VVDI Prog:

This is a BMW remote review from a customer who has good success.

I did renew 2 keys! Renew BMW series E 868 key – 100% OK usingvvdi prog v4.6.0Both worked and now are programmed to cars! 

Only thing you need to disconnect from PCB is battery while writing the renew file.

I think that is only for those who have older version of that adapter. Older version came with 33 ohm resistor and later they decided that it is not needed and newer adapters like mine came with 0 ohm resistor that is just connecting both sides together without resistance.
If you have that 33 ohm resistor then remove it and short-connect it.
If you have 0 ohm resistor, then don’t mind that first box in connection diagram. It’s not for you.

I did it in circuit.

VVDI2 make a dealer key on VW Transporter UDS System

If you have Xhorse VVDI2 VAG key programmer to add dealer key on VW Transporter/Caravelle T5 2011, but not work, you must read this post, the problem is finally solved.

Problem description:
VW Transporter/Caravelle T5 2011. Had an existing working key and used Xhorse VVDI2 to make a dealer key on a UDS cluster but something went wrong or more likely I did something wrong. It says 2-2 on the cluster and lights go off as if programmed but once cranked it starts and dies and the glow plug indicator light flashes. I stripped the cluster and tried with putting the cluster in to service mode but still much the same. With AD100 it says 2 keys coded and cluster in Mode 7. A friend came with his Zedfull and recoded in both keys and it said precoding ok but still the same issue. The dump of the original 24c64 and the backup I first made are attached and I’d appreciate any advice or help on this. Thanks everyone

Folder: Transporter T5

Config: This value contain car manufacture, key number, immobilizer status (new, learned, closed), keyless or not etc.

Your immo status is likely changed, did you press the reset immo button.
When did you made the 24c64 backups.
After entering service mode true obd, or after your keylearning procedure?

The initial backup (small file)was made before I made the key but I read the 24c64 only after it wouldn’t start. Any idea how to change the config from o7 to 06 again?

Instruction guide by senior:
go in to service mode by obd.
read immo data.
change the conf 7 in to 6.
press, write immo data.
press, reset instrument.
that should do it.

Finally! Solved
Thanks everyone. Yes it was me being stupid, I think I actually wrote the 24c64 complete file back instead of the smaller immo file. Did as advised and problem solved.
