  1. I stupidly bought the OBDSTAR X300 PRO4 and it is rubbish – don't waste your money. A real struggle to get support in clear English and the unit failed on most of the cars we've used it on (all the cars were listed as supported), I will avoid all OBDSTAR products in future.

  2. Do these machines match the key to the cars immobilizer? My 2002 audi tt immobilizer light keeps blinking and some times the car won't start but for a few seconds. Mechanic gets it running but hard telling how long it will last.

  3. i lost the key fiat ducato 2.2 visteon ecm a delphi bsm. I cut the second key, so what can I program, otherwise I have svci 2020

  4. I would like to reflash or virgin used keyless entries. I would like to know if there is a tool that can do this job for me, especially on GM and Ford Prox keys. Thank you

  5. Zedfull 100% safe my arse – tried on VW Caddy 2015 1st time use and corrupted dash!! Been using Abrites for 6 years and never damaged a VW once. Will say an email to manufacturer and i did receive a fix.
    Nothing is 100% safe esp with Chinese kit – your on your own with a potential 2K bill down dealership

  6. There was a zed full on eBay being sold and the guy said he was selling because he’d bought another machine. I was told the zed full was amazing. So if he’s selling it whats he bought that’s better do you think

  7. Hi dr I’m new in this job I’m from nz Auckland what is your Advise to buy good tools to star my own Business I have knowledge about the mechanic and programming and Diagnostic I really like to do Programming key please if you can help thanks bro

  8. I've watched so many videos and did a lot of research and cannot find one that will work for me. Your video is 2 years old, so things might have changed.
    My key cylinder was damaged. I ordered a new OEM key cylinder for my 2018 Nissan Versa S Sedan. The new key cylinder came with 2 transponder keys with a tag on the key ring. The tag has a 5 digit number. I cannot find one that will do foreign cars or they don't do 2018. I need one that does work on transponder keys (I don't have fobs – just black plastic coated transponder keys). PLEASE advise!!!

  9. So can any of these machines work for volvos? I can't even find a locksmith that can make a key fob. Don't wanna pay the dealer 500 if I can spend a little more and make my own. Thanks for responding!

  10. @Dr.Lock which program can I use on 2005 and newer Audi Mercedes Benz and Bmw that reprogram all lost key fobs and will read all modules for mechanic Diagnostics and fault codes. I also wanna be able to enable and disable modules and systems like steering wheel lock seat belt chime etc????

  11. Warning, dont use this SKP900 to try and copy the Range Rover smart remotes as it will lock up the KVM unit and you will end up with a car that will not recognise the keys anymore and will not start, this has happened to me a few time so i dont use it on Range Rovers now, it works ok with the earlier flip type keys, but not push button start cars

  12. Lonsdor K518ISE Latest Update Policy:

    Menus are divided into two parts: free menus and subscribed menus.

    1.Free menus are free for lifetime.

    2. Subscribed menus can be used for free for 90 days. You need to pay for them after the trial period. After the trial period, subscribed menus will not work properly if you don’t pay. And the menus will disappear after updating the device.

    THIS IS WHAT IT SAYS so you cant use some brands later

  13. 98% of the time I don't mind ads on YT videos because I know that it supports the creator directly by doing so. However, having an ad after every single 5 minutes review? That's beyond greedy. The information you listed is helpful due to the fact that it is concise and well put together. But I'd rather look it up on my own than be forced to sit through 30 minutes of ads on an already 60 minute video.

    Not cool, man. I wanna support people like you, but you shot yourself in the foot.
