The star pro gadget is just an eeprom with a basic IC that resembles a 327 IC.

It will store and retrieve pin#'s/

I delved into this in another thread, but forum members said I was going to fast to far. SO, I decided to dial it down a few notches.

Members here either thank god I am not around as much or miss me.

Either way, I don't care, I always come here to give free advice and as much of it as I can.

I believe in a free world where hard work and honesty is compensated. Regardless the form of compensation.

So, on another note, maybe this would be more future proof for your investment.

Will do key programming/pin retrieval and WAY more.

Interesting read. I have a bit bit of a hobby going on.

At work I am lucky. I have access to pretty much some nice toys. Frequency readers and such. All our scan/diag tools are up to date and dealer ready. But things may change even worse than before.

Late getting to mid and northern canada, but yeah, legislation is passing without further ado. https://www.realclearpolicy.com/art...o_repair_is_inherent_in_ownership_110391.html

I'm already working with hydrogen cell tech today for heavy duty semi trucks. We won't see diesel go away in my lifetime. I'm just in design and testing mostly software.

Nickb2 thank you great reads, but I'm not spending $500+ to program one key but it could do so much more later on.
I agree with the second read and that is what I am battling now I just want to fix my own car but am hamstrung by proprietary BS. At least there are ways like all programming and information out there.
A tech 2 cost 6K but a clone is $300 but you take a chance it may not work at all and probably will not get a refund, throw the dice friends.
I might get the obd star x100.
More to come.
Thanks

Ok update I bought the OBDSTARX100 pro $300, and guess what? The tool would not pull the pin code no matter how I tried. I tried several different ways but no luck there. I'm going to keep trying but will more than likely deal with Amazon seller to return it.

E Prom might be a way to go but any video I find isn't much help. I am sure this unit is capable of much more but right now it is a $300 paper weight.
Any of you guys know anything about Eprom?
LOL seller wants to refund $50 and let me keep the tool so it would be a $250 paper weight.

On a side note my SBB programmer worked great for Mitsubishi.

As the owner of a vehicle I should be able to get the pin code for FREE! This is a regular key not FOBIK
Thanks
