MB Star C3

Hello, I'm having a hard time with this Star system I bought. Topbest MB Star C3 Multiplexer Professional MB Diagnostic Tool with All New Relay 2014.12 C3 Software installed in CF 19 Laptop-in Diagnostic Tools from Automobiles & Motorcycles on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group

It is connected but when I go to run the Xentry diagnostics it immediately disconnects then when I exit the diagnostics and go back to Xentry it shows connected.

Does anyone have experience with this issue. The seller is telling me that it could be incompatible with my car 2001 CLK 320.

Thanks The Actor

The seller is telling he/she does not know anything about the tool.

Which diagnosis cable did you use? I guess you mean DAS quits, not Xentry? A 2001 CLK would be tested with DAS (you can get there from Xentry too though).

Show us the CAESAR self-test results.

Should you consider asking your money back?

The doc file is not uploading correctly. It drops connection when DAS goes to establish a connection after I confirm left hand drive. When it gets to the screen for VIN input the connection has dropped. The seller said I need the Red Multiplexer. I'm about to send the whole thing back. Has anyone had luck with one that does work on 2000 and up MB?

Going way back, there is a change that can be made to a .ini file that tells your software you are using a C3 and then you would see green at the bottom instead of red.

This link may be of some help.

I decided to send it back and go a cheaper route. I looked at this thread http://www.benzworld.org/forums/r129...nostic-12.html I'm going to go this route already bought a D630 and waiting for a credit from seller to purchase the new C4 from link in this thread. The one I had may or may not have worked but the seller couldn't give me any solid answers which got me even more frustrated.


Thanks The Actor

That is more than understandable.
