The Abrites diagnostics for Mercedes/Maybach/Smart is a diagnostic software application meant to be installed on a Windows based computer and used together with the Abrites Vehicle Diagnostics Interface (AVDI).

Abrites diagnostics for Mercedes evolved into a world leading advanced diagnostic system providing its users with the ability to exchange electronic modules by adapting all DAS related modules (EZS/ EIS, ESL/ ELV, TCU, ECU, ISM, etc. The software gradually evolved to include the options to read, save and write the DAS/ FBS data(FBS2/3), to read and write the module's coding, key preparation for BGA (Mercedes chrome) and NEC MCU (plastic) keys  and allow the customers who use it to perform tasks often unimaginable to the OEM workshops. Our team has spent thousands of hours and worked on hundreds of different vehicles in order to be able to bring you our product. The Abrites diagnostics for Mercedes is a constantly evolving systems with numerous new additions almost every month. In its core lays the DAS manager - a function that allows the long feared DAS system to be placed under the user's full control. The Abrites team also developed our own keys to suit the key learning for all possible types of keys for the supported cars. We are constatly making new breakthoughs in the DAS system. This means that there are always newer models and options included giving our customers the sharp blade of excusivity and the ability to constantly be one step ahead of the competition by being the only ones who can help the end customer in a cost effective way.

The Abrites EM001 ESL/ ELV Emulator is another example of a simple yet elegant solution to an age old annoying problem with the fragile ESL/ ELV system. The Emulator replaces the fragile ESL/ELV giving your end customer the sense of security that their car will not end up on the back of a tow truck in the middle of the road.

Abrites diagnostics for Mercedes/ Maybach/ Smart is designed to perform standard and advanced diagnostics for Mercedes-benz, Maybach and Smart vehicles.

In terms of standard diagnostics, the Abrites diagnostics for Mercedes/Maybach/Smart provides a variety of functions dedicated to:

In the field of advanced diagnostics the Abrites diagnostics for Mercedes/ Maybach/ Smart allows for a dealer level and beyond that versatility. With its help the users can perform module exchanges, software updates, key learning, mileage calibration and much more.

In relation to module exchange, the Abrites diagnostics for Mercedes/Maybach/Smart allows for modules to be exchanged with new or second hand modules, thus reducing costs and time for the specialists using it. Some other features that the software provides are model specific, for example the repair of the SBC (Sensotronic Brake Control) system, typically located in the W211 and W219 models. A software update and renewal of the 7G–tronic units in the vehicles equipped with it. This allows the replacement of the electronic unit which is well known for its common failures.

The Abrites diagnostics for Mercedes/Maybach/Smart allows mileage recalibration in order to complete the module replacement. Some other features are more service shop oriented – such as the calibration of the service intervals and ASSYST plus intervals. The software provides the options for reading and updating of the flash and EEPROM from most modules installed in these vehicles as well as an easy and thorough key learning procedure for most models of the brands listed above.

Everything the Abrites diagnostics for Mercedes/Maybach/Smart provides is always tested, improved and further developed, allowing the software to stay at the top of all the aftermarket diagnostic solutions for these vehicles.

As stated above the Abrites diagnostics for Mercedes/Maybach/Smart works together with the AVDI in order to help the user to perform standard and advanced diagnostics on Mercedes, Maybach and Smart vehicles.

Abrites Diagnostics for Mercedes/Maybach/Smart combines high level software with unrivalled technical support from the development team of technical specialists and software engineers.

Abrites Diagnostics for Mercedes/Maybach/Smart is a genuinely competitive alternative to "Star Diagnose", providing quicker diagnostics, coding and programming than other Mercedes/Maybach/Smart diagnostic tools.

In addition to the standard AVDI Interface software coverage, highlights of Abrites Diagnostics for Mercedes/Maybach/Smart also include the following functions, many of which are unique.

Diagnostics is performed via the OBD-II connector or via the Mercedes-Benz proprietary 38-pin connector (only older cars, pre-2001). Also support for vehicles with a 14-Pin diagnostic link connector (these vehicles are accessible when "Trucks/Buses" is selected as "Chassis Type") has been added. Our PC USB diagnostic interface supports over 26 multiplexed K-Lines and Mercedes-Benz diagnostics CAN-BUS interface (also known as CAN-D).

DAS Manager - The DAS Manager special function allows many modifications to the different units within the vehicles. Using this function the ECU, TCU, ISM, ELV and EZS can be returned to a virgin state, adapted to a vehicle, personalized, activated and coded. This function is extremely useful when using the DAS Manager to exchange used electronic modules in Mercedes – Benz vehicles. DAS manager has a very intuitive user interface. The procedures are as simplified and filtered as possible. The processes and procedures it could be used for only require your input when it is needed. Reset(Virgin) and adaptation for the greatest variety of EZS/EIS, ESL/ELV, ECU, ISM/DSM/ESM, TCU modules currently available. Complicated module selection steps have been eliminated thus removing the possible issues this may cause.

Infra Red and NEC password reader

You can program an EXTRA key if you have an existing key for the vehicles with a NEC MCU. Supported existing keys should be NEC v. 51 or v. 57. The operation itself is quite simple and straight forward - read data from EIS (through IR cable without removing the EIS), read the data from the existing key with ABPROG, software will then generate the online content of the new key for you and you should then program it with ABPROG.

DAS 3 Key learning (Infra-Red Smart keys)

Key learning for the Infra- Red (IR) Mercedes keys. Reading EZS (EIS) Configuration data dump by IR connector or by OBD (Please note that the password is not read and needs to be acquired by reading the NEC MCU of a working key). Once the Dump is read (either by OBD, IR or programmer) and the password is obtained the calculation can be performed online with the Abrites servers in order to generate key dumps or it can be performed offline using the Abrites PROTAG programmer which needs to be connected to the computer and the Abrites diagnostics for Mercedes/Maybach/Smart.  The calculated key dumps can be written onto IR keys (Original or Abrites IR keys) using the PROTAG programmer's IR port or using an ABPROG V4 PCB to which the NEC MCU needs to be soldered.
