How to test old Benz car before 1996 year with MB SD C4 C5 Star

Many customers contacted:

Why can’t MB SD C4 C5 test the old Benz car?Especially the old Mercedes Benz using the 38PIN diagnostic joint before 1996.

We checked and found that customers used the xentry software in MB STAR C4/MB STAR C5 to test old Mercedes Benz cars.It is wrong.Because the old Mercedes Benz cars before 1996 can only be tested by HTT software which is in DAS.And sometimes we also make a shortcut on the desktop of the computer.

xentry software

  HTT software

For example,In V2019.07 software of the MB STAR C4 / C5, HHT is made as a shortcut on your desktop.

Just click on the HHT icon on your computer desktop to open the software and test your old Mercedes Benz car(before 1996).

If you use V2019.07 software,you can lick and open the DTS icon on your computer desktop图片3.Then choose the old Benz car(before 1996) you want.HHT software will automatically pop up.

MB STAR HHT Internal Fault Diagnosis Multiplexer Code 10766

Problem:

I bought the Mercedes Star Diagnostic SD connect C4 diagnostic system. I have installed the XDOS 2015.12V DAS Xentry on Dell D630 laptop, but it gave me two errors:

Error 1:

HHT-WIN display error “Internal fault Diagnosis multiplexer Code:10766”

hht-inetrnal-fault-code-10766

Error 2:

Fault (1.2) Initialization of diagnosis multiplexer failed.

multiplexer-of-diagnosis-failed

Possible reason:

1: HHT error: 2015.12 or newer 2016V Star diagnosis software does not come with HTTWIN software. If you need to troubleshoot old Mercedes, better go for Star software pre-2015.09V.

2.Multiplexer failed: We can see from the error screenshot, MB star Compact C4 icon didn’t show on the status bar which indicates you have not set the SD Connect C4 correctly, so the MB SD C4 is not well communicate with vehicle.
