PCMTuner Tested as Renault Clip Passthru

Renault Can Clip pass thru goes good with pcmtuner. Followed Renault Clip passthru Configuration guide from Mhhauto forum.

Pcmtuner Renault Clip Passthru

‘You need to trick Clip into believing your passthru (j2534) vci is an Alliance VI probe.

There might be multiple ways of doing this, but the simplest that I have discovered is to set “Vendor”=”79B” and “Name”=”1B” on your passthru registry settings in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\PassThruSupport.04.04\<VCI>.

We recommend creating a new vci entry by exporting from the registry and editing the reg file.
People have used DrewTech Cardaq Plus, Ford VCM2, VAS5054, Daf VCI, scanmatik and PCMtuner. Communication with some ecus has glitches, but most work alright.
Renault has the multimedia CAN bus on OBD pins 12 and 13, so you most likely will not be able to access ecus on that bus, unless your vci is able to route a second CAN channel to those pins. If you really need access to that bus, you can make yourself an adapter cable and redirect the CAN pins by intercepting the passthru api calls.

This might be very useful to a lot of people.’
