– W207 on bench OK, 11 minutes
– W203 2004 spare key making takes about 13 minute when begining to programming new key. Read pass NEC key by IR and calculate PSW
Key still working after get PSW.
– Test with my W209 545 31 08 on bench as add key: 15mn all done
Trying all key lost, failed. But a friend do with W209 545 05 08 succes PSW by IR without gayeway
– W246 2014 FSB3: Add key succesful in 15mn

Car from Japan
– W221 2008 with key v57 from Japan:
Add key success after 30mn, get PSW in the 2è upload.
W221 2010 Facelift Work too
ML350 W164 2006: Read EZS, add key, write BE key all done in 17mn. Really fast and i’m happy with the first try on car.Use late software 18.104.22.168
I just plug in the OBD, put key and turn ignition ON and read.After this step, CGDI will ask only put in EZS and in CGDI. Just all. PSW query is more longer than 209, about 12mn to get PSW.
2007 w221 from Japan: Add key on bench
First try I use VVDI
But 2 time upload also failed cannot get pass
So I was change device CGDI from VVDI
1 time upload successful
Good and very fast 10min got pass
Add Key on W221 2007, i was complete in ~12min. CGDI is very fast
Upload collect data after 2 or 3 min show me PW
Class C W203 2005 adding key on car.
Spare key made in under 10 minutes.
make new try with CGDI, add key on bench with old Moto key:
I have spare W209 + original BGA key, i have dump key calculated by CGDI before.
Moto key with Rom read as: 74, use format 051 (MA567.880.051 – 0F82B)
Write dump to Moto and test with EZS, it work and can turning key with Chinese EZS tester.
So connect EZS to CGDI, start read EZS and key info. All OK.
Before starting collect data, software ask if it is old generation key, so YES. Tool running and running after 5mn, ask it the key it’s loose.
If I click No, software stop. If YES, it continue running and the same tip go on.
If I choose other type 051, the same happened. So conclusion, with Moto key, CGDI cannot add key on bench.

Part 2. CGDI MB programs new key when all keys lost.
– test all keys lost on w164, need gateway.
– Tested w212 ALL KEY LOST !!! In car, done by OBD
Work really good!
W212 is from 2012
Read ezs About 30mins
Read eis info
Paste key password
Then key calculation
– CGDI MB tool works good to do W207 W204 lost keys on bench.
W204 get data: About hour
PSW W204: 11minute all key lost in bench with VVDI cable
had VVDI and CGDI,CGDI is faster and no problem to get PSW:
Question: when we have CGDI tool working all by OBD why lads want the tool to work on the bench???
Answer: For example if car is some further from workshop and you must spent time driving to the car or customer is just TOO far to drive, so then he can sent EIS or drive by himself bringing EIS it with him at workshop. It’s time saver and what if tool will not work via OBD? You will loose many time driving ex. 30 miles x2. If you have on bench, you can work at your place without risk of wasting time. Also calculating psw at the place of car might last 30 minutes, 1 hour in all keys lost? It’s much time to sit in the car + you have to take care of battery charger. If you have on bench, you can drink a coffee or a beer if you want and enjoy the waiting time
Still no tool which can do all merc by OBD anyway…
– W203 with W209 EZS all key lost, done in the car about 70mn: Successful.
– Calculation PSW always the first time, never fail.
-Plug USB to computer, software recognizes at once. So I take 2 used BE key put in and read. Software say need 12V.
So I plug 12V and read and reset to unused quickly. Will test on bench W209 as key lost later.
2018 CGDI Prog MB feedback:
1. generate a password in Sprinter W906 2017 year.
2. Password calculation for w212 – done.
3. CGDI reset very well BE key,BE key is after market chinese key.
4. CGDI Mercedes Benz Programmer can work to any car FBS3. Procedure:Read EZS, choose with or without key, query for key password, save. Load dump with psw, calculation key dump, write key with unused key track.
5. W211 2004 YEAR add key ,10 min job!
6. W164 EIS type all keys lost possible only after 2009
7. I did key x164 GL 2012.
All done in 10-12 mn.
8.Actual CGDI cannot work with old Kline ELV, only 204 207 212 ELV or emulator.
Processing, read, get erase PSW, renew. 204 need read ezs data, erase psw, and wipe ezs. After load data EZS and sync
9.Can renew ELV for w212
Yes 204 207 212, but if fatal error, not possible for now.
Need change NEC chip or use emulator
10. Question: Can cgdi program new key for w202 with ir?
You need Remove EIS/EZS desolder Flash inside and Read with Programmer 🙂
After that you can generate New Keys!
And solder the MCU again back to EIS/EZS 🙂
