How to use JLR SDD do Passenger's seat calibration?

Jaguar X150 passenger seat will back will not sit up correctly. It appears to only travel about 1/3 of the driver, leaving the seat and passenger leaning back very far.

 

What to do?

Use SDD the software diagnostic tool to recalibrate.

 

Good suggest on how to do?

If you have a spare laptop, you can get set up yourself for as little as $50.

 

I have had my Mangoose (Chinese clone of a Mongoose) for 5 or 6 years and have been able to do most things dealers do, including updating firmware in various modules.

 

As you can see from the attached screen shot the seat calibration routines are in one of the menus.

Then where to find more info?

If you have a few hours to spare you could start with this thread:

Cloned dealer scan tool – Jaguar Forums – Jaguar Enthusiasts Forum

https://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/general-tech-help-7/cloned-dealer-scan-tool-66558

There are quite a few suppliers and some people have had mixed success with them but I think I bought mine from here:

 

jlr-mangoose-for-jaguar-and-land-rover

They also do a copy of the Mongoose Pro now as well:

jlr-mangoose-pro

 

The cable should come with a copy of SDD (Jaguar supplied diagnostic software). You may or may not be able to read the CD the software comes on and it may or may not work fully! SDD V131 seems to be the sweet spot for functionality and least issues and there may be a link to a copy in that thread somewhere.

You can buy the cable plus a complete image of a virtual PC from a few suppliers which means you don’t have the hassle of installing the diagnostic software yourself. I have not had many problems myself but some people have wasted days trying to get theirs working. Once you have it working though it is an invaluable tool and will pay for itself over and over again.

 

If you use it to update firmware you must make sure you have a decent (at least) 25 amp power supply connected to the battery otherwise you run the risk of bricking modules.

MB W220 S55 ESP Variant Coding with Star diagnostic

What is variant coding? And how to do on Mercedes S55 ESP?

 

Purpose: ESP module variant coding with Star diagnostic

 

Vehicle:2002 Mercedes w220 s55

 

Problem: I get a code under ESP module saying C1511-005 Coding Error Variant Coding is incorrect

 

Reply:

The variant coding in question is set by using factory data. That factory data is basically what chassis that engine control unit is bolted to. Things like weight of the car, yaw sensor and acceleration sensor parameters, moment arms, etc etc.

Once the engine control unit “learns” its variant coding, it is permanently and irrevocably locked down.

 

The ESP module reads the variant coding from the ECU. Once read, its ” soft” locked.

 

Your trouble code suggests that the ESP module has a variant coding that differs from that of the ECU.

 

Is this a recent occurrence? Did you perhaps have an third party ECU tune performed? Was the ESP module replaced ? Is the trouble code stored or current ?

 

Using STAR you can go into the ESP and check the currency of the error code and determine if it was 9 years ago or last Tuesday. If it was a long ago and a stored code, I would clear it and move on. If it is current, you can force a variant locking reset of the ESP module in STAR diagnostic and see if the code returns. If the trouble code returns, that would make it a current and ongoing error. If that turns out to be the case then perhaps the ESP module has gone “breasts skyward”.

 

Look here:

 

in STAR diagnostic

go to the ESP module under CONTROL UNITS

CHASSIS

ESP

Fault Codes

Select C1511-005

1. to the right it should say CURRENT or STORED

hit F8

It should show you how many time the car has ben started after the code was detected. “0” means the fault is CURRENT, any number greater than 0 the fault should be STORED and past history. The ( obviously ) higher the number of start cycles the longer ago it was.

2. Double click C1511-005

Read the pre conditions

hit F3

read the sequence and follow it to (hopefully) force a variant coding re-read/write.

It would seem that the ESP reads the ECU on every start up. Having a bad TCU MAY be contributing to the ECU variant coding being off kilter. I would think there would be some P2000-P2564 series codes displayed for that though.

 

 

The most important note: When you get into adaptation it shows 000000 zeros on the vin number section and ask you to enter vin to match it. tried but no success.

 

How to solve:

 

Bear in mind I am using Xentry-Sim.

Paramaeters: specified US D2B version 220.175

Control Units

Drive

Transmission: selected 722.6 as of 2001

Control Unit Adaptations

First stab in the dark, try F7 ( Perform Synchronization ) In other words.. ” go fetch me the VIN from the ECU ”

If that is successful ( something other than 0’s displayed) , then F5 ( confirmation of the VIN ).

If not successful, try entering VIN as it appears normally, then F5

If that doesn’t work try entering as internal FIN, 2201751Axxxxxx where xxxxxx is your chassis serial from Normal VIN. Then F5.

If none of that works…It maybe time for some of that professional help mentioned earlier up the thread.

Try that and see what happens

 

I have no training as a MB mech/tech and offer this as just a possible direction to proceed in. The ( very ) highly paid professionals at the Dollarship or the ( not so ) highly paid folks at a good independent shop should/would have the final say.
