IM608 Pro II Clone Mercedes ME2.8 ECU Method

Learn how to effortlessly clone your ME 2.8 ECU for Mercedes vehicles using Autel IM608 Pro 2, avoiding the renew procedure. This guide is applicable to the cylinder V6 ME 2.8 ECU found in Mercedes W203, E-Class, W163 module models, and W164 ML500.

Step-by-Step Guide: Cloning ME 2.8, M112, and M113 ECU (C240, E320) using Autel IM608 Pro II

Upon identifying the precise IC, it becomes possible to read the specific chip in place, eliminating the need for physically removing it. A convenient approach involves utilizing the APB103 clip adapter for establishing a connection. Simply position and connect it with the XP400 Pro key programmer.

Navigate through the IM608 II interface to access the programming functions.

Navigate to programmer Function – Chip Function – Chip Read & Write – EEPROM – ST – ST95XXX – ST95P08 – EEPROM – Read.

Find the chip named ST. After that, move down and pick XT95. When you’ve done this, you’ll see it transition to EEPROM. Now you can read its contents.

Read and store EEPROM data.

Transfer the EEPROM data to a new ECU unit

The cloning process is simplified with the IM608 2. Just click on the “Write” option.

Browse to the previously saved EEPROM file and confirm the writing process.

Ensure a successful write by verifying the process completion. Double-check that the data has been accurately transferred to the new ecu.

Reinstall the newly cloned ECU back into your vehicle.


By following these straightforward steps, you can effectively clone the ME 2.8 ECU for your Mercedes vehicle using Autel IM608 Pro 2. This procedure not only simplifies the process but also eliminates the need for a renewal procedure.
