Silca M-Box problem snooping 2009 Chevrolet Aveo


Recommended Posts

I have had a P-Box since they came out so I am familiar with the process of snooping.

No-one from Silca available to assist so maybe a member has had similar problem

Non remote key detected by reading.

Snoop reset

Go to car

Despite trying every position on the key, I cannot get any LED indicator readings.

Sorry for last 2 pics, locked in vertical position by camera

 

Any help appreciated

Hi Graham,

Thanks for link.

Unfortunately copying to a T33 was not an option, only to T48 (2nd pic) and then resetting snoop.

That makes sense as to why I was not getting a reading, but does not explain why the unit is fixed to the T48 route.

I powered it down a couple of times, but still got the same sequence.

The M-Box was turned on, just wondering if it needs to be switched off for ID48-A copying, just a thought.

Regards

To be honest i have not tried to do a t33 chip since recieving my M-Box, it may be you have discovered a major bug in the RW4 software.

 

I will be speaking to Lee or Matt at Silca tommorow so i will ask about it, i may have an old chip i can try cloning to see what my box suggests.

 

Have you tried upgrading the firmware on the RW4 since connecting the M Box, i switched mine off at the weekend and when i switched it back on there was a firmware update so i ran it no need to connect to a pc anymore.

What other problems ??.

A lot of writing errors when writhing the chips

And when the calculation is done and the RW4 asks for the original key it's say verify key position and then says it's the incorrect transponder even though it's the customers key.

Did one yesterday at it took just shy of 1 hour. 28 mins of calculating and then writing errors and verify key.

Not had any problems at all when programming ID48 chips so far i think i have done about 18 so far.

 

The only issue has been time with the longest taking 1 hour to decode which was a vw caddy last week, did an iveco and a punto yesterday and both took approx 10 minutes.

 

Habe you upgraded the firmware on all devices ?. I had to do my P box firmware late last year and you need the little orange 9 pin serial adapter to do it.

Done over 30 since I got the box everything is upto date checked it last night before leaving the shop. It's annoying cause it works and very happy with it great addition to the business. P-box and M-box all on the latest software. It's mad I must be the only one with problems.

Initially reading the key.

I have a 2009 VW Caddy that I tried it on when it first arrived.

I find that you have to read and ESC the key 3-4 times before finally it says to remove the key, and reset snoop.

Did this with both of my keys.

When the calculations had finished on both which only took 3-4 minutes, showed write error to new T48 chips, but both worked perfectly when tried.

Just put it down to beginner user error.

Went back this morning armed with more tools.

Still reading the key as yesterday and wants to copy to T48

Turned off PBox and MBox, re-read key, still says its a ID48

Read the key in my Miraclone and confirmed its definitely an ID48 and not an ID48-A as "WR" is missing next to CR2 (1st picture)

The 2nd picture is from a spare Chev ID48-A key that shows the "WR"

Just to make sure the snoop hadn't gone faulty, tried it again in my VW Caddy and it worked fine.

 

So back to square one, why can't the snoop get a reading.

Finally got to the bottom of this mystery.

Had a very interesting chat with Lee from Silca, and now it makes sense.

We have concluded that this was originally a lost key job, and that a normal ID48 chip in a non remote key, was programmed to it, just to get it up and running as the 2 button remote keys are very expensive.

It wouldn't sniff because the system is a ID48-A.

The RW4 detects the ID48 chip in the key and assumes its a ID48 system, and continues the snooping process.

The learning curve continues.
