How to: VVDI2 program key to BMW E87 2006 (CAS2)

Purpose: add a key to 2006 BMW E87


Tool: brand new VVDI2 full kit


Car: a 2006, 1 series, E87, with CAS2


Problems: I connected the VVDI2 to the OBD2 port, inserted the already existing key into the key slot, turned ignition on and clicked Connect on my VVDI2 4.7.0 app. I was surprised to get “AutoDetect Failed!” error so I checked connections and clicked Connect again, same error. Than I taught maybe it is not able to detect the CAS, no big deal, so I selected the “OBD2 KWP-E6X,E9X……..” and clicked Connect again, this time it was “Reading Data Failed!“, and so on for every protocol that I’ve selected. Than I went ahead and undated the software and firmware to version 4.7.5 that is the last version, but no change.



Long story short my VVDI2 can’t connect to CAS2


Solution: Checked and works. Even with last ftdi drivers. You have to check that drivers DON’T LOAD VCP DRIVER.


Attach photos

I made my own cable. I’ll upload photos of the pinouts, that way you can check your cable!

Volkswagen Group MQB platform

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

The Volkswagen Group MQB platform is the company’s strategy for shared modular construction of its transverse, front-engined, front-wheel drive (optional four-wheel drive) automobiles. Volkswagen spent roughly $60bn developing this new platform and cars built upon it. The platform underpins a wide range of cars from the supermini class to the full size SUV class. MQB allows Volkswagen to assemble any of its cars based on this platform across all of its MQB ready factories. This allows the Volkswagen group flexibility to shift production as needed between its different factories. Beginning in 2012, Volkswagen Group marketed the strategy under the code name MQB, which stands for Modularer Querbaukasten, translating from German to “Modular Transversal Toolkit” or “Modular Transverse Matrix”. MQB is one strategy within VW’s overall MB (Modularer Baukasten or modular matrix) program which also includes the similar MLB strategy for vehicles with longitudinal engine orientation.


MQB is not a platform as such, but, rather, a system for introducing rationality to different platforms that have transverse engines, regardless of model, vehicle size or brand. Thus MQB uses a core “matrix” of components across a wide variety of platforms — for example, sharing a common engine-mounting core for all drivetrains (e.g., gasoline, diesel, natural gas, hybrid and purely electric). As well as reducing weight, the concept allows different models to be manufactured at the same plant, further saving cost.


MQB-based models

MQB models may range from superminis to large family cars, replacing the current generations of models. The MQB architecture replaces the PQ25, PQ35 and PQ46 platforms.


All MQB cars will share the same front axle, pedal box and engine positioning, despite varying wheelbase, track and external dimensions.
