Mercedes SDS Star Diagnostics - C3 Mux - Xentry/DAS 03/2015
I am selling my Mercedes Star Diagnosis kit, used only a few times. It comes with the Dell laptop with a very recent version of the Mercedes Xentry software from 03/2015. It also comes with the C3 multiplexer which allows you to connect the software to the car. The RS232-RS485 cable connects from the laptop to the C3 mux. Then a cable from the C3 mux to the car via OBD. If you have an older Mercedes that doesn't have an OBD port (prior to mid 90s), there are also a bunch of extra wires to connect to the proprietary Mercedes connector on your car. I haven't even removed these from the packaging.
The software on the Dell laptop has Xentry. Xentry links you to a program called DAS for diagnosing problems by reading codes, performing actuations, and reading actual values from the car, etc. Xentry also links you to another program called WIS (workshop information system). This lets you obtain step by step instructions with pictures on how to perform literally any repair on a Mercedes.
The few times I have used this tool, it has been extremely helpful. Great tool for any DIY work on your Mercedes-Benz!
Selling for $650 shipped. This is a great deal considering it has barely been used
Battery on the Dell laptop lasts around 3 hours.
