Possible to Read Benz w164 08 EIS All Keys Lost Password with VVDI MB?


I have a 2008 donor w164 eis that I need to be renewed to install in another 08 car

Those 08 can’t be read by vvdiprog. Board isn’t listed.

Can’t use power adapter . Only 09+

So my only hope is to insert IR a million times in eis to get password. But I always get error data acquisition failed 258 after a few inserts. See picture.

Any idea what that means ??



It is possible to do all key lost with that type of EIS.


Easy job for 30 minutes with little reinsert IR plug.  After every error reconnect usb cable and go again.

 Soon will be available automatic method in VVDI MB tool.
