I came across the ELM327 adapter and the Android application Carista. It was the application that really interested me. I decided to test it and finally I want to talk more about it.
ELM327 Bluetooth OBDII scanner for no two years in the car, and Torque has been installed on the smartphone thanks to which it is possible to take readings from the sensors installed in the car (temperature, speed, engine speed, acceleration, etc.). A cool application, there are a bunch of plug-ins, but I did not really like it, I played it a couple of times and that's it.
The first thing we need is the adapter ELM327 . In China, such an adapter costs about a couple of dollars. The adapter has built-in Bluetooth. Somebody said Carista does not recognize the ELM327 version 2.1, however the ELM327 version 1.5 no issue, if you recognize them and make the diagnosis. So better choose ELM327 1.5 interface.
The adapter is extremely simple to use. First turn off the ignition, and then:
1). Find the diagnostic connector.
ELM327 BT adapter into the socket. If you can not stuck - turn it upside down and try again (like with a USB stick).
Here's a free version to try:
5). The first time you connect the adapter to the phone via Bluetooth, you need to pair them. On the smartphone, turn on Bluetooth and look for available devices for pairing.
ELM327 scanner adapter and smartphone are interfaced and the next time you plug the adapter into the connector, it will automatically connect to the smartphone.
- Doors / Windows / Remote ( Doors / Windows / Remote control );
- Instruments / Display / Dings ( Tools / Display / Signals );
- Lights ( lighting );
- Other (Other );
Going into each of the sections we see separately each function that can be activated or deactivated. Here is a list of what is available from me. The list is actually much larger, here is a list of what is activated / deactivated from me:
Doors / Windows / Remote ( Doors / Windows / Remote control ):
- Auto-lock doors when moving;
- Auto-unlock doors when key is taken out of ignition (Auto unlocking of doors when the key is removed from the ignition lock);
- Auto-lock trunk when moving (Automatic luggage compartment lock when driving);
- Unlock trunk when the doors are unlocked (unlocking the luggage compartment when unlocking the doors);
- Blink turn signals when locking / unlocking with remote (Flashing indicators when setting / removing from the signal);
- Beep when locking with remote (Horn by a horn when signaling);
- Beep when unlocking with remote (Horn by a horn at removal from the alarm system);
- Beep when alarm is armed (Horn by a horn when an alarm is triggered);
Instruments / Display / Dings ( Tools / Display / Signals ):
- Instrument cluster language (System language, voice control);
- Instrument cluster region;
- Time display format (Time format format 24H / 12H AM PM);
- Multi-Function Display ( Multifunction display );
- Lane-change turn signal auto-flasher (function of comfort turn signals)
- Lane-change turn signal auto-flasher count (Number of flickers of comfortable turn signals);
Lights ( Lighting )
- Cornering lights (Backlight turns with fog lights when the dipped beam is on);
- Turn on the interior lights when the key is taken out of ignition (Turn on the interior lighting when the key is removed from the ignition switch);
Other (Other )
- the Activate side by mirror heaters are the when REAR window defroster is on (mirrors heating, when the heated rear window);
- Speed-dependent windshield wiper speed (wiper speed, depending on the speed of the vehicle);
- Auto-enable rear wiper when front wipers on and reverse gear engaged (Turn on rear wiper, when reverse gear is on);
- Horn works even when ignition is off (the horn works with the ignition switched off);
This is what I got to activate / deactivate. Still available, but it did not turn out to activate the daytime running lights (those that are installed in the fog-lights, I do not have one), the Coming / leaving-home functions (but you need a light sensor) and a couple of small things.
In general, for those who want to read errors and without activate / deactivate hidden functions - ELM327 + Carista are ideal thing. I recommend!

Here are handy tips and guides for you guys who are trying to do immo off by kess v2 ecu master.
What is immo off? And what is partial immo off?
IMMO off is simply a modded dump of the ecu flash or eeprom or separate immo box to tell the car no immobilisers function
In some immo files you see the letters T or P . T means total, so immo off/disabled. P stands for Partial that one is used to make the ecu virgin and to reprogram new keys (if I am not wrong). the car is drivable only if the immobilizer is connected and running.
used when diagnosing non start car problems not a good idea but helps in trouble shooting.
another place is used when key matching messes up to determine if it is immobilisers or something else playing up
Immo off: should you use kess v2 or ktag?
First. Look here. I have collected some questions and answers from users.
Q: I was wondering if it’s possible to immo off a read or backup read done by a kess v2. need ktag to read separate files?
A: Ktag should work, almost impossible to separate file read by KESS
Q: Flash read by ktag will be full flash and not only maps as kess ?
A: With ktag you have full eprom and maps.(flash).
With kess you read only maps.
Q: Don’t i need full flash for immo off and not just maps ?
A: Most you need eeprom read. You need ktag for that
Q: when i load a ecu file with kess v2 via obd? Can i turn off the immo in this file ?
A: Some ecus you can’t because you need desolder eeprom some others you can’t no immo off and others immo in flash you can turn off
Q: Any chance to do immo off with Kess?
A: Either you have bad read or its a slave file, nothing we can do with this file …
and you need Ktag or Galletto to make full read, OBD read can’t do immo off.
So, for immo off, Ktag is confirmed to work and Kess yes or no is a question.
Reason why some people think Kess V2 is not for immo off:
KESS that is ecu programmer, you can read and write ecu , but it does not modify files.
But actually, is it possible to do immo off using Kess V2?
It Depends; on the vehicle make and model!
Because some vehicles have an EEPROM which runs the security function while others which only have a flashfile with a rolling code embedded there in, depending on 2 or 3 other member but mostly gateway Ecu on transponder or drive authorization mechanism.
So you need to know how vehicle security of the respective vehicle ecu works. Some vehicle you can use Kess V2 (can only read and write part of flash(at times not everything therein)) then you need a hex editor to edit the sectors therein either to make key(if you know key ID) or immo off.
There are too many old ecus with immo off in flash, you could do it with kess, but too many others need work in eeprom so will need another tool or even desolder, for those in mcu need proper tools.
Tested vag edc15vm! Able to write immo off with Kess V2!

Here are tips and guides of cloned VAS5054A software ODIS Service 4.3.3 Error ODS9004E.
odis 4.3.3 error ods9004e
Infrastructure VW online connection. Mirror server 2: cannot connect to mirror server 2.
Solutions: (credits to kmaverick and sunaj )
Run program as ADMIN!
Check in Program Files\ODIS Service xyz\log for ENGINE.LOG
Check if green file exists….
Your path could be too long, so change to short path like C:\PostSetup\ODIS\Trade-Retail with correct folder structure!
Then try a copy of these two main files odis.main.service_51.0.10.jar and 51.0.20:
And also install 540 fine and 550 is only a small update mainly Bentley
Seems the local copy of odis.main.service_51.0.10.jar was good, now it upacks ok
With ODIS, if you do a clean install then get errors like pp had with 550 and missing file(s) but now you have a database loaded, update to 550 with no problems now… go figure!
ODIS is working finally
