KT200 Review

Here is a customer’s review about KT200 ECU programmer.

I have KT200 ecu programmer. It’s a very good tool, no need to open ecu. EDC16 full in bench, EDC17 too. It can make BDM, JTAG, VR read offline dongle in full kit. You can buy HT-prog too. This is an additional tool that works with KT200. With this, you can clone a lot of ecus, read CAS, etc. I have both, and very happy to buy them!

2. My hands-on experience with KT200 ECU Programmer

I’ll walk you through my experience using KT200 ECU Programmer to read and write ECU data on a VW-EDC16 U31 ECU.

Step 1: Obtain ECU Information

Launch the ECUHelp Software and access ECU INFO.

Enter HW No. (0281011982) and retrieve ECU details.

Note: Ensure a network connection is active.

Launch the software and access the Manuals section to obtain ECU information.

Step 2: Prepare for Connection

Access the ECU U31 query and select VW.

Obtain the wiring diagram for proper connections.

Step 3: Connect to ECU with Bench Pinout

Follow the wiring diagram to establish ECU connections.

Go back to KT200 ECU Programmer Software and choose “Select Driver”.

Opt for “VOLKSWAGEN” > “MPC563/4” > “EDC16 U31.”

Click “BENCH MODE” and then confirm with OK.

Click “CONNECT” to establish communication.

Step 4: Read ECU Data

Build a new folder on the desktop.

Connect the device and press “Read All”(Ensure voltage is 12V+).

Specify the save path to the newly created folder.

Turn on the power before initiating ECU data reading.

Reading ECU data ok!

Step 5: Write ECU Data

Swap to a new ECU for connection.

Choose Write All to clone ECU.

Note: If you do some ECU remapping or chip tuning, and in the event of modifying ECU data, please opt to write separately by selecting Write Int Flash Micro and Write EEPROM.

If the original ECU data remains unaltered, you can directly choose Write All to clone the ECU.

Step 6: Checksum Correction

Upload the initial file to perform checksum correction.

Verify the accuracy of the checksum correction.

Allow the writer to complete the process patiently.


So I share with all of you how to use the KT200 in bench mode. I think it is a good value to buy for the following reasons: KT200 ECU programmer offers exceptional value with its versatile communication modes (OBD, BDM, JTAG, VR, etc.), extensive vehicle brand support (BMW, Mercedes, VW, Audi, Ford, etc.), compatibility with various ECU types (EDC16, EDC17, MED17, MEV17, etc.), offline functionality via dongle, and reliable performance ensured by high-quality cables and connectors.
