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 is also 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 ZN036 IR adapter and much faster.

Renewal of the original Mercedes NEC MCU keys (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.
