Espace 4 key card used Programming Guide

Car key type: a Espace 4 ph2 with keycard 3 buttons with keyless PCF7936.

Purpose: to program a used key card (Same Buttons and chip). I am trying to learn an used oem key to the car.

Attached the picture. The left one is mine and the right from the other car.

I meant I have the Pin. But only for my car. Not from the other key.

What to do next?

Replace PCF or unlock old PCF, then precode for your car and finally learn to car.


With keydiy KD-X2 or Xhorse mini key tool you can unlock the PCF (the installed transponder) –> Virginize it.
Then you need to create a so called dealer key out of it and learn to your vehicle with renolink. Do you already have the login pin?

When the key is already adapted to another vehicle, you cannot add it to yours. You have to unlock it first. Google “unlock id46 chip Renault”.

Both are very cheap (about 150€) and or only for generating and renewing keys. I own both of them.

I would suggest you to buy the keydiy KD-X2 It has everything on board (renewing cables) and can also clone many transponders 4D/46/48

Both are token free as long as you don’t want to online calculate id48 keys (VAG vehicles).

You can also pay with the collected points.

Which programmer to buy to learn Espace 4 keys to cars?

VVDI2 is only for bmw, vag, Porsche and Peugeot.
If you want to buy from xhorse, buy the the big tablet from them. VVDI Key Tool Plus.
For resetting the transponder you have to solder wires to the pcb. It doesn’t work by remote.

What about VVDI Key Tool Max?


That’s the one I have and it can renew keys but does not come with the cables. You need to buy the renew cables separately.

Why all this trouble about one used key? A new one doesn’t even cost 10€. Where can I buy a new key at 10€?

Good to know:

7936 is only the basic ID46 transponder without any remote information. PCF794x only means that remote information of the central locking system is also stored in the transponder chip alongside with the anti-theft system. These transponders never belong to a single vehicle model or even brand. When you look for pcf7947 in aliexpress you will finde hundreds of vehicles using that specific id46 transponder type.

So you received a lot of information and device suggestions. Now you have to get your stuff sorted and decide how you want to proceed with your key adding challenge. Any locksmith with proper tools would do job for under 90€ within 20 min.

Tool Recommendations for Truck Immo All keys lost

Recommend good tools for trucks Immo / All keys lost, particularly Euro trucks – Benz, Scania, Volvo.

There is no universal tool that will do all. I do repairs on all european truck excluding Iveco, and I can share some experience if it comes to immo.

MAN – Any tool to read/write by E-GPT protocols or by BDM (EDC7) or Boot (EDC17 Euro 6) will be okay for engine ECU, and You would need EEPROM programmer and Macaca for FFR/PTM (FFR only EEPROM). With such tool You will be able to disable the immo (but I’m not sure if there is any Immo off option for EDC17 currently). Or You can get MANCATS II and III with developer software and You will be able to programm keys in truck to about 2016 year production. Newer are blocked and harder to bypass.

Volvo/Renault – Get Vocom with PTT, You can easily disable Immo in V2 trucks, change two parameters and You have no Immo and no error on dash. Fast and easy. For V4 trucks, never had to learn yet, as there was no client that needed new keys, so can’t tell much. But PTT will let You disable the Steering Lock that tend to fail on those trucks very often.


DAF – Euro 5 DMCI, Get Davie XDCII with DAF MUX-560, You can program keys, change ECUS, change Immo boxes no problem. For Euro 6, Davie will be ok up to 2016. Newer only Davie 4, but if You’re not authorized DAF Dealer, no Immobilizer programming. It’s totally blocked.

Scania – Get VCI3, install SDP3 and XCOM. Learn how to modify SOPS files and erase Immo with XCOM, and You’re good to go with S6 and S7 Ecus. With S8/EMD1 it’s more complicated but doable. With SDP3 You can teach new keys, delete old ones and with few tweaks to SOPS files, You can also disable the Immo. Still, EMS and COO need to be paired, but it’s easy procedure with SDP3.

So… A lot of money to invest if You want to do every brand. If You want to start cheap – go for Scania. VCI3 is quite cheap, all the necessary software You can find on forum (or bought reliable source sdp3 software). MAN and DAF have the most expensive interfaces right now. There is no do-it-all software, like the ones for cars, that will let You program everything unfortunately.

2020 Top 4 BMW Key Programming Tools Review

Put together all the best buy for BMW key programming tools based on real users’ reviews, incl. yanhua mini acdp BMW, vvdi2 for BMW, Autohex, Autel IM608 etc.

1.Yanhua mini acdp BMW


I am using yanhua mini acdp. Tested very much times, never failed for me. Very comfy to work from phone, now I always read eeproms by yanhua just from phone.

And with yanhua 0 soldering. Even though it’s easy to folder to cas, it still takes 3min. With yanhua its 30 sec.

2. VVDI2 for BMW

1)  I use vvdi2 for BMW and used to remove eeprom off the board to read, until i had an accident with one!
Have since been reading in circuit using vvdi prog and dropping Vcc down to 3.3v for reading.
So far so good…

2) I have VVDI2 and use this for BMW FEM keys. I was desoldering 95128 chip from FEM and had an accident with one. Managed to get it sorted in the end when someone with Autohex unlocked a used FEM (without key) for me.

I still used my VVDI2 but read the 95128 in circuit using VVDI Prog (dropped the Vcc down to 3.3v) and even Carprog original (again read at 3.3v), read multiple times, verify and compare files. Everything went fine.
It was so much easier and quicker.

3) I have VVDI2 but I used it only once on Mini to read ECU EDC1722 ISN by OBD because autohex fail to read it.
2 days ago I programmed F30 AKL without desoldering with autohex

4) Last week I did F20 akl without desoldering with VVDI2

 3.Autohex for BMW


1) Depends how many BMW you do. Autohex works great on them but its not cheap.

2) Autohex it’s a good tool to invest!
I don’t use it much but I know if something goes wrong autohex will save my assess?

3) If you have only locksmith version and you try to program petrol CAS3+ with Continental ECU by OBD you will be very surprised

4) I’ve started with Autohex II BMW Lite Locksmit  but been forced to update to AutohexII BMW Full Version.
If don’t have full, it’s a bit useless!

5) E70 AKL is the same! Cannot be done even if they are saying “all e and f series”.
Also fem/bdc, 99% of them need update before unlock. Can be done from advanced functions but not always!

But worth having full!
Many BMW on the road and are not the best cars..


Good think about AH – it will notify you when clip is not connected. You won’t go any further without that. I use AH a lot and since 2 years now never fail on me so far.
Only bad but I can say is CAS4. You won’t do even spare key with OBD if you don’t have ISN.

4. Autel IM608


I bought im608 few weeks back..
So I’m testing this tool on bmw..
It has a lot functions…so I’m testing as I go…
Waiting on for the g-box2 couse cant work on bench without it…
Trying to read ISN on edc17c06 by obd ..cas3+..
Cas ok but it takes long for ecu to read isn so im not sure does it work or is just take longer…

More operation guide on Autel IM608 BMW(CAS1/CAS2/CAS3/CAS4/FEM/BDC)

To be upgrading…

Thanks to all users of DK forum.

Scorpio-Lk Tango Pros:

1). 100% Original Scorpio-LK Tango
2). Free update online
3). Latest Version: V1.115
4). Supports Daihatsu G Chip Function (Need to pay)
5). After generating a new transponder with TANGO Programmer, you will not need any additional diagnostic equipment to program the generated transponder to the car! It will start the car directly, even on new FIAT CODE 2 system, also used in PSA Group vehicles! Only you have to write the new file back into the immobilizer system!
6). With Free TANGO OBD Cable.

7). No token limitation.

8). You can check Tango user manual in the menu after software installation

9). you can buy extra modules from Skorpio-LK no problems

Scorpio-Lk Tango Cons:

1). Failed: I reprogram a BMW key, I can’t delete the reprogrammed key with Tango.

2). To have Scorpio-Lk Tango full Autho, it is not cheap.

Scorpio-Lk Tango using tips:

1). Connect TANGO to computer with internet, start the software to [help]>>[check update], then you can update Tango to latest software.
2). Please visit Tango official website and update within 28 days, or it will get locked
3). If you want to get authorization for special functions or cars, please refer to official website too
4). If your Tango already get G chip authorization, it can only generate G chip 10 times per day.

Scorpio-Lk Tango –  a must have key programmer

It is modular like AVDI or TMProII, with limited free functionality for each manufacturers. The whole BMW package is free, so you have to get it if you have to deal with Beemers. To be honest it has lots of weak points, but the documentation what is included makes it worth to pay for: pictures of the devices what you have to look for, sometimes with location and unmount pics; list of the transponders what you can use to the chosen task; the name of the chip what you have to deal with. Packages are from 50€, you get the activation code in e-mail very fast, but can depend on your dealer. So much from the good side, let’s see the weak points: It comes often, that you can’t open the .bin files for their name, just have to find out where the program accepts it. For example: Yaris as Corolla, Insignia as Camaro, Cordoba as Polo, Picanto as C’eed, aso. It gives some well-known problems: can’t do anything with the RB8 controllers, also. It is a bit uncommon, that it wants to be updated always, but who cares, it goes fast enough via smart phone too.
However: you have to buy this to be able to do your work, so take a deep breath, and pay: 959 dollars for the basic sw + hw.

Clone Tango Cons:

It has many bugs and sometimes goes faulty for no reason:
I have tried new Fly tango V1.111, it does not work. Before update it worked little bit. For example I could red Skoda 1998 iD33 key. But after update nothing works. Except for documentation, that works. I am using it on windows XP, no yellow flags. When I check Fly tango software says everything is ok, but last line says some errors. I think I have to buy original Tango.

Switch Activation Function

(Today many instruments or audio of vehicles activate secondary power supply to go into power-on status by relevant module CAN communication on the vehicle, but sometimes an instrument or an audio is separated from vehicle CANBUS network, causing startup failure when it needs to be repaired by an auto technician. This function can simulate CAN communication to activate secondary power supply, so the instrument or the audio enters into power-on status. In this way, it not only can test and verify the instrument or the audio, but also save an enormous cost for an auto technician to purchase a large number of startup platforms of various vehicles and wiring harnesses!)

Xhorse VVDI2 full – A good alternative of AVDI

A good alternative when you don’t want to pay for the AVDI modules.
It has VW (Audi, Seat, Skoda, Porsche, Bentley), Beemer and PSA support with key learning and so on. I don’t know how other peoples think, but AVDI is and was a good tool – but is damn expensive. The modules what this machine can do were cost more than 10.000.- euros. This alternative is good enough to do the allday work, and costs only $1600 from the official web page. From this year the ID48 cloning is free for all users, don’t imitate – innovate! There is only one thing with this toy what irritates me: you have a prompt in the program, that you have to update the software, but if you push on update button, nothing happens. To update the program you have to download & install the new sw as usual VVDI Prog, only the firmware update needs the official update manager.

Sometimes some functions aren’t activated, then you can ask for help.

Top 11. TMPro 2 Original Transponder Key Programmer


– TMPro2
Expensive alternative of Tango. The original hardware is cheap – and that’s the only thing what’s easy to get. The tool has lots of modules (208 at the moment) and the cheapest ones costs €100, but gives lots of modules over 1000 euro. It gives some modules that are able to use such binaries what no ther tool can, but they are insanely expensive. If money doesn’t matters, then this is the best choice what you can make; otherwise depends only on your customers what is what you have to build up: Tango or TMPro. The main software without modules and hardware is free to use, but is only able to tell about a binary file when that’s good or not. The main hardware is between 89-150 euro. I think I won’t pay for this nearly €30.000.- to have the full version. (Maybe cheaper if you buy the whole package together…)

What is TMPro2?

Transponder Maker Pro (also known as TMPro keymaker or TMPro2 keymaker) is a programmer and softwares for transponder key making, transponder key programming, transponder key copying and PIN code/ security code calculating. Programmer has to be connected to USB port of computer, it does not require external power supply. Main software user interface supports 14 languages – Bulgarian, English, French, Portuguese, Polish, Hungarian, Spanish, Serbian, Italian, Czech, Chinese, Greek, Turkish and Romanian. Programmer and all softwares are auto-updateable to latest version available on server.

TMPro are organized as modular softwares. At beginning you can purchase TMPro programmer without any additional softwares and use it only with main software. In the future when job comes to your workshop you can very fast and easy add new softwares by simple software purchasing system.

TMPro2 works with immobilizers eeprom dumps. You must have electronic knowledges and to know how to use soldering-desoldering tools and memory devices programmers. It is your choice what programmer you will use for reading memory devices – TMPro2 memory device programmer or other programmer. In order to program transponder you have to remove immobox/BSI/UCH unit from car, open it, desolder memory device or solder wires on testpoints, and read it. Depending of vehicle memory device can be serial eeprom, Motorola MCU, Microchip PIC MCU, ST10F269 MCU, Texas Instruments MCU etc… Next step is to program transponder. Last step is to solder back memory device, reassemble immobox/BSI/UCH and fit back to car.

That’s it for now, will be updated if I know anything important.
