Through years of development we at Abrites proudly present to you the Abrites diagnostics for Mercedes. The standard diagnostic capabilities of the ABRITES Diagnostics for Mercedes, Maybach and Smart are insdisputedly at OEM-level. It is one of the most advanced diagnostic tools in the world combining pure diagnostics with the latest in advanced functionality - module replacement, key programming and calibrations. Here is what we can offer you in terms of diagnostics:

  • Read and clear diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs)
  • Monitor live values
  • Perform actuator tests 
  • SCN coding (e.g. DPF regeneration)
  • Service interval resets both for Assyst and Assyst Plus for most current models. With this you can service Mercedes vehicles and have the documentation to confirm this withing the car itself. This allows anyone with an AVDI to be able to be at the level of a Mercedes dealer at just a fraction of the cost.

The Abrites diagnostics for Mercedes/Maybach/Smart provides its users the ability to perform dealer level diagnostics for almost 100% of the model range. Starting from the W202/W208/W210 and reaching all the latest models. We are also happy to let you know that we will very soon be able to present support for the Mercedes Actros Trucks!

Vehicle Identification
The first step of any diagnostics is the identification of the vehicle that is being diagnosed. The online version of the Abrites Diagnostics for Mercedes/Maybach/Smart boasts 3 different identification methods - automatic vehicle identification, identification by VIN number or manual selection of the vehicle model. You can even select one or more separate electronic control units to scan.

Module scanning and reading/erasing of DTCs
The online version of the Abrites diagnostics for Mercedes/Maybach/Smart has an extremely stable solution for identifying ALL available modules in the vehicle and reading their DTCs. The user then has the option to view more details about the DTCs and/or delete them. The detail of the DTC description is unrivalled and can help out any diagnostician when performing vehicle diagnostics.

Live data
One of the strongest advantages of the online version of the Abrites diagnostics for Mercedes/Maybach/Smart is the ability to show live data from various sensors at the same time both as a list value and on a graph. The extensive list of measured values is one of a kind and something that an OEM tool can compare to.

Custom session
For more advanced users the software also allows to open a custom session with each of the modules. This means that the user can send custom diagnostic requests to the modules and receive their respective replies. (Please use this function at your own risk! We cannot guarantee the well-being of the control units during the use of custom requests as it is 100% user controlled.)


The ABRITES automotive solutions for Mercedes-Benz vehicles allow programming keys when in need of additional ones or in all keys lost situations. It is compatible with ABRITES very own infra-red (IR) keys and PCBs, good quality 3rd party keys and PCBs, and original keys (renewal, ABPROG used).

EZS password extraction by OBD or on a bench allows IR key programming for vehicles up to FBS3. DAS 2/DAS 2B transponder key programming for W163 ML/ R170 SLK/ VITO/ Sprinter is available. Most DAS 3 is done with relay also, even 164, 221 before facelift. (ABPROG used)

Key programming


Load Data...
(1) Extraction by IR-adapter
(2) Very slow so recommended is extraction by IR-adapter
(3) Should be manually inserted IR-adapter
(4) Average password extraction time 40 minutes
(5) Password extraction requires ESL connection

Instrument cluster calibration



With the help of the Abrites solutions for Mercedes-Benz, you can adapt modules and perform instrument cluster calibration procedures and replacement.
Our team is glad to announce the launch of the latest Abrites functionality for Mercedes-Benz, which enables users to perform odometer calibration by OBDII for FBS4 vehicles with IC213 and IC222 dashboards. This functionality is accessible with the latest version of the Abrites Online Diagnostics for Mercedes-Benz.

The cluster calibration capabilities of the ABRITES Diagnostics for Mercedes, Maybach and Smart are versatile and useful. Using ABRITES products allows calibrating the dashboard, replacing dashboards, perform retrofitting, EZS/EIS module (no CAN filters involved), performing Service interval reset, as well as service functions for regular maintenance purposes. ASSYST and ASSYST PLUS support is available, and assistance when the ESL/ELV module contains data. The ABRITES software solutions for Mercedes, Maybach and Smart support 93 % of FBS3 vehicles, colour and monochrome displays.

When coding and programming is concerned, the ABRITES automotive software can be only compared to an OEM tool. We provide full SCN coding opportunities, which is extremely helpful when it comes to module replacement and adaptation, as well as enabling and disabling various features. For example, DPF (renewal, regeneration, replacement, running time and mileage value reset), seat and seat belt calibrations, speed limitations, Video in Motion, AMG start screen, Apple car play, sunroof, 360 degrees and front camera, including SVS calibration. Users are also able to perform SBC (Sensotronic Brake Control) repair, airbag and DAS module coding.

Proprietary 7G Tronic and ISM (Intelligent Servo Module) flash database available.


In coherence to the philosophy of ABRITES, we optimise all procedures by implementing the ecosystem we have developed. While programming keys for Mercedes, Maybach and Smart using the ABRITES Diagnostics, ABPROG extends the key programming capabilities of the AVDI, making the extraction of the EZS/EIS passwords possible via the IR adapter. Renewal of the original Mercedes key’s NEC MCU version 51 and 57 is also possible with the ABPROG.

Abrites Programmer



The Abrites proprietary flash database is used for 7G tronic transmission and ISM (intelligent Servo Module) adaptation and re-programming. The database contains flash files and is used together with the Abrites Diagnostics for Mercedes-Benz offline (without the need of any special function) in order to assist with the adaptation and re-programming of Transmission modules (a.k.a Conductor plates) and ISMs. The database can also be used when reprogramming a transmission module to operate as a module from a different car.
