CGDI work not on all by OBD
W906 Sprinter don't work (CGDI Supports W906 only CAN BUS not K-line)
W230 SL55 AMG 2006 dont work (CGDI supports W230 CAN BUS, you can send EIS and CGDI MB tool to factory to add K-line)
CGDI MB Prog FAQs:
Q1: need to know more info about yellow cable, its to kline but where to connect it when using obdii and when using on bdm?
A1: When using OBD, need disconnect ESL connector and look for K line pin to connect Yellow clip. When using on bench: look for EZS-ELV wiring and plug the clip to kline pin
Q2: What about mileage correction (reset to 0)? vvdi vs cgdi
A2: CGDI can show mileage from EZS, new software come out, updated
Q3: When we have CGDI tool working all by OBD why lads want the tool to work on the bench???
A3: For example if car is some further from workshop and you must spent time driving to the car or customer is just TOO far to drive, so then he can sent EIS or drive by himself bringing EIS it with him at workshop. It's time saver and what if tool will not work via OBD? You will loose many time driving ex. 30 miles x2. If you have on bench, you can work at your place without risk of wasting time. Also calculating psw at the place of car might last 30 minutes, 1 hour in all keys lost? It's much time to sit in the car + you have to take care of battery charger. If you have on bench, you can drink a coffee or a beer if you want and enjoy the waiting time. Still no tool which can do all merc by OBD anyway.
