    Default Iprog+ first time user , wont read camry via denso uart

    Hi all,

    ive just picked up a Iprog clone and having a play with it..

    I have a 2012 camry cluster , wired up as per iprog instructions. Iprog certainly take a while to read and then say error.

    Is there something i am missing ...

    I have connected the same as picture but without the switch.. iprog instructions has no switch for camry and cant see what difference it would make anyway

    I have tried both ways but is dash supposed to be powered up while you do it or not?

    Quicker work doesn't mean better work. I always prefer to remove eeprom before reading.

    I can't see how desoldering chip is safer or better than UART? Please explain

    With the eeprom removed from the board, you stand less of a chance corrupting the eeprom than you do reading in circuit. Reading in circuit is fine if you know what your doing and know the risk.

    Agreed but is the risk the same as piggy backing eeprom vs UART communication?

    Hi I bought an Iprog clone too. Playing with it but can't seem to make it work. Do you need to power it up with an external power supply or just the USB?
