Lonsdor K518ise Volvo key programming FAQ

Question: Somebody tested Volvo key programming? Interested fact is te calculation data has ‘it’s term of validty’. I mean if we calculate data from CEM Lonsdor accept calculated file but if we try it next day, then device say wrong file and we need to calculate one more time. I havent chance to test on real car yet, now just plyaing with CEM units. But I wonder how they calculate those datas and why they expire

Answer: If you use other key programmer to read out the data, then K518ISE Key Programmer need to transfer, and it will have ‘it’s term of validty’. If you directly use K518 + KPROG to read out and automatically save into K518, then it won’t have the validty.

Hardware Advantages:

1.  Built-in VCI box
2.  8-inch touch screen


3.  Chargedirectly via OBD interface
4.  Practical and high-end gift box
5.  Industrial design with silicone case
6.  Back bracket design:prop on the steering wheel or stand on the table
7.  With 4 Toyota simulation keys (the fifth is coming soon)


Simulated key 1 applies to the vehicle with 94/D4 type of smart key;
Simulated key 2 applies to the vehicle with 98 type of smart key;
Simulated key 3 applies to the vehicle with 88/A8 type of smart key;
Simulated key 4 applies to the vehicle with A9 type of smart key;

8.  P001 programmer: EEPROM adapter + RFID adapter+ Key Renew adapter


9.  Add the clip of reading SOP 8PIN EEPROM


10. C001/C002 circuit board to read and write chip data with weldingC001 circuit board


Image 1: C001 circuit board is compatible with old NO. 3 and 4 circuit boards, applying to EEPROM chip dismantling and reading, Tianjin FAW and VIZHI immobilizer coil initialization and other functions.C001 circuit board


Image 2: C002 circuit board is connected by W001, W002 or W003 without welding the chip.

11. IMMO induction coil to detect the key induction coil failure of the vehicle.


12. Add wiring harness of ECU reading by OBD (for ECU cloning and switch activation)


ECU Programming/Cloning

ECU cloning means copy ECU, that is the OBDSTAR X300 DP Plus copies the data from the original car ECU, then write it into another same ECU hardware, so that it can achieve the same function as the original ECU.

When you want to change the new ECU or the second ECU, if you use X300 DP Plus to clone via OBD, you won’t need to go to the 4s store to do the online programming or dismantle ECU to weld, read & write.

ECU clone Pros :

No need to go to 4S shop, convenient, fast and save money.

Simplify the operating steps, even the amateur can also operate.

No need to dismantle and weld the ECU to read & write, it is zero risk to clone ECU via OBD with the X300 DP Plus.

Switch activation function

Nowadays, many car models’ accessory power supply of the dashboard or audio equipment needs to be activated to enter the boot status through the related module CAN.

However, when the car technician maintains the dashboard / audio equipment, the main unit is out of the CANBUS network so it maybe won’t boot.  OBDSTAR Scanner X300 DP plus” switch activation function” can emulate the CANBUS communication to active the power supply of dashboard / Audio so that it can enter the boot status, then it will test and verify the dashboard and the Audio, also the technician can save money avoiding to purchase many the boot platform and cables of kinds of car models

13. Adds the “Help” functionincluding the testable car models, update notice, special features, help instruction, wiring diagram etc.

Testable car models: The user can read the testable car models and year.

Update notice: The user can read all of the update content.

Features: The user can read all of the special features and the functions that only X300 DP Plus supports.

Help instruction: Built-in the guide and instruction for each car model or function.

Wiring diagram: Built-in ECU wiring diagram, more intuitive and convenient.

Pictures mean a lot:

OBDSTAR X300 DP Plus program Toyota 888A All Key Lost with simulated card

This article show a guide on how to use OBDSTAR X300 DP PLUS to perform all keys lost programming for Toyota 2016,It is tested 100% ok.

What you need?
OBDSTAR DP Plus (Any of A package or B package or C package is ok)
Which contains P001 programmer and the simulated card in Red  (applies to the vehicle with 88/A8 type of smart key)


Main Procedures:
Make simulated card
Add Smart key
Erase smart key

Connect OBDSTAR DP Plus (OBDSTAR X300 PAD2)to the Toyota OBD port (Directly charge via the vehicle)

Press the “Start” button and you can see the yellow warning light flashes for 3 times (Means detecting no keys).



Enter into DP Plus function menu, tap “Toyota / Scion / Lexus”


Initializing MCU data


VCI is upgrading.. (VCI is built-in)



Initializing diagnostic data


* 5 seconds done… DP plus is running fast

Tap “Smart key system”


Tap “Type 5 (All smart keys lost)”


Tap “Read eeprom”.


Read in on-screen guide :

This function can read (backup) vehicle EEPROM data;
After read (backup) of vehicle eeprom data, the simulated card is generated with this data;
Using simulated card attach start button to illuminate instrument, and instead of original car key to [Add smart keys].



Reading data…

Please reenter the file name to save.



This vehicle EEPROM data backup was successful. Please execute the [Make Simulated Card] function!


Tap “Make Simulated Card”.


This function can generate an simulated card with all keys lost.

Use this simulated card instead of the original car key to approach the start button and turn on the instrument, and perform the [Add Smart key] operation.

Make sure the simulated card is fully charged, otherwise the [Add Smart key] operation may fail.



This function is available by connecting the server, please ensure the internet connection is normal.


Connecting to the server.

Connect P001 programmer to diagnostic tool.



Put NO.3 simulated card (Red) into P001 programmer.


Insert the battery and turn on the switch.



Put the simulated card (88/A8 type in Red) into OBDSTAR Scanner P001 programmer.


Only one seconds later, get message:

Generating simulated card successfully.

Move the simulated card close to the start button and try to light the meter. If you can light up the meter normally, use the simulated card instead of the original car key for the [Add smart key] operation.




Go on [Add smart key] operation.
