  1. @Willys Your version of MBSTAR already has TAN free coding
  2. I believe that the dealer can cut you a blade with just the VIN. Just pop the blade out and swap. As for the FOBs, you can recode an used one without any issues.
  3. Now that I've started comparing my stock map vs the tuned map, I'm sure that the map that I got is stolen from somebody rather than the OEM Brabus. The EGR sections have been modified/deleted - I'll post a pic later, but essentially there is no "dip" (compared to the above pic) meaning the EGR valve does not open at all in any rpm/IQ. With the EGR "tuned" out via this method, the valve body will still need to be connected as the ECU will still do a self check. Next goal is to find the EGR self check and turn it off!
  4. HA! I jump the gun last's the OEM EGR map that I've finally found. For those who are nerdy, the location is a 16x12 map 6D724.
  5. Making a little bit of progress though just like the general consent online, WinOLS has a very steep learning curve. From my limited experiences and research, I believe that's what the EGR map looks like 2D mode. Found the above map by searching for the "001 000 001 048" string. @toslen The damos file on your link seems to just add a bunch of German folders, but no physical location or definitions. Most likely that I imported them wrong though. Back to hours of YouTube researching!
  6. @smartdriver thanks for the info and contact! @tolsen interesting...maybe it was labelled as Brabus, but actually stolen from somebody? FlyingTiger, Smart142 or some European tuner? I have smart142’s map on an old ECU that I should be able to pull out, but kind’a should ask for permission....maybe then I can compare the differences?
  7. @Willys I think your car already has smart142 tune, but better safe to ask him. The "map" is where the ECU stores all the parameters necessary for the engine to operate. Basically all ECU takes all the information from the sensors => consult with the map => output to effectors (injectors, timing, fuel solenoid...etc). Where these parameters are stored can be retrieved and overwritten by certain communication protocols such as the KWP2000+ that I mentioned above. MBSTAR is a different communication tool that runs on a different protocol. So to speak, MBSTAR makes changes to the setting of the "program" whereas KWP2000+ changes the coding of the "program." I did back up my map, so if anybody is interested, pm me and I can send it to you. I'm currently running the Brabus diesel map (at least what I believe it is from my source). @tolsen I know somebody near Edmonton that has a copy of the legit WinOLS (will go beg and pled to use it)...will download your link and see if I can lean anything from it. Thanks again for the driver and now the definitions! @smartdriver You were mentioning when we talked in TO this summer that your EGR is tuned out. Any chances we can take a look at your map?
  8. So I'm hoping that we can use this thread to collect and share information on the EDC15c5 ECU particularly with regards to EGR off. With my KWP2000+ finally working, I was able to pull off the ECU my map which according to smartzuum may be actually the FlyingTiger tune light version as I noticed a quicker shift, but no increase in power. What I would like to do is to tune out the EGR section of the map eventually and possibility make some tweaks for a bit more power. From what I can gather so far: 1) the EGR section of the EDC15C5 map contains a string "001 000 001 048" when setup in a given layout (8-bit view) 2) the 1st set of "001" acts as a switch that turns the EGR map on/off (say 001 for on and 000 for off) 3) an alternative way of removing the EGR map is to edit the parameters at which the EGR is turned on (say to edit the temperature requirements...etc). But I do not have the address location for those parameters. Does anyone have a legit version of ECU Titanium/WinOLS/Swiftec that they would like to confirm this or do checksum for me? I know that I can probably pay someone to do the editing, and some ECU software even has modules that automatically deletes the EGR function. But I believe that gaining knowledge doesn't hurt, but my wallet does. I think we can all benefit from learning and understanding how it all comes together and work. Izzy
  9. Took Red Pxl out of storage yesterday and took it for a rip out of town. Was driving it most of today and put on about 200km in just 2 days! Got my new KWP2000+ work finally (thank you tolsen for the driver), so I remapped the car. Plan to drive the Canada1 for the next month or so just to get it out of my system before storing her again for winter.
  10. Pulled Red Pxl out of storage and went for a nice 80km drive in the country side. Man I missed driving my Smart.
  11. Between the EGR valve body and the EGR cooler (has 2 coolant hose connected to it, a silver-ish pipe that connects to the turbo on the other side).
  12. @Sydney you will be in limp mode (can't rev past 3k, and engine is gutless) if you don't have the emulator. As Wilys pointed out, its easy to make and the schematics for the emulator is found here on the CsC wiki section. Good Luck!
  13. Remove the 3 hex bolts to separate the electrical solenoid part of the EGR valve. The plunger should move freely and spring loaded. If its stuck inside the solenoid, or does not pop out smoothly, it maybe the issue. Good luck!
  14. Sweet! Another Edmontonian! Welcome to the club!
  15. Let me know...I'm always up for a smart car meet!
