Alejandro Formoso Romano What you mean with failed in calculate password? did you use the server?


Nick Pelletier After I uploaded the date I waited 2 minutes query results it failed.


Alejandro Formoso Romano are you new doing mercedes mate?


Alejandro Formoso Romano there is NO password calculation by server on w220 chasis mercedes….so if you tried data calculation you fuck up the key yourself …it lost sync


Alejandro Formoso Romano its a very easy car it will just give you the key pass by ir .
