Lonsdor K518ISE Key Programmer Operation

Read CEM security data

Volvo’s CEM is basically located behind the storage box which is in front of the co-pilot seat

CEM boxes may have the same appearance, but the back of the circuit wire location is different, can be called type A and B .

Type A: open the lid, pay attention to the black columns in the blue circle on the back of the circuit board, those are four positioning points, stably match them respectively with the white columns on RN-01 board.

Note: The circuit board is coated with insulating glue, it is required to use the washing plate water to wash it off the blue area of the insulation coating in the contact point (solder joint) , or power can not go through, if the needle of RN-01 board is broken, it will need to wire in the corresponding locations.

(First time to use the adapter, please bind it with K518ISE host, please refer to”Function”)

Type B: Its circuit is different from that of type B, it requires to wire to read immodata, please refer to below wire instruction:

Note: Connect power to read the data, it is required to separate RN-01 board to the motherboard to prevent conduction; welding line should not exceed 15cm.

how to connect install and use VAS 5054A USB

VAS 5054A manual, esp. for how to connect, install, use VAS 5054A via USB?

Look here:

When you use vas5054a via USB connection?

In special cases you can also operate the VAS 5054A using a USB cable connection:

– To configure the VAS 5054A in the Diagnostic Interface Configuration Utility program (Bluetooth settings, activation of the built-in buzzer, auto power off),

– For use in areas in which wireless communication is not permitted,

– For applications that require a high-performance connection to the vehicle.

How to install vas 5054a via USB?

If you want to install the VAS 5054A only via USB when installing the application software, do not yet connect the VAS 5054A to your PC. When the Select EDIC to install dialog box opens, click Cancel. The application software is completed without installing a diagnostic interface.

Plug the VAS 5054A into the diagnostic connector. Open the rubber cover on the front of the VAS 5054A and attach the mini USB connector of the supplied USB cable. Connect the USB cable to a USB port on your application PC.

The following description assumes that the diagnostic application has already been installed.


(Fig. 3-25 Windows Found New Hardware Wizard )

Windows automatically detects the VAS 5054A through Plug and Play. In Windows 2000 the drivers are installed without a confirmation prompt, in Windows XP the Found New Hardware Wizard launches (see Fig. 3-25). When prompted if you want to connect to Windows Update, select No, not this time (Fig. 3-25). Click Next> to continue installation. Select the Install the software automatically radio button and click Next> (Fig. 3-26). Click Finish to close the wizard (Fig. 3-27).


(Fig. 3-26 Automatic installation of the driver files for the VAS 5054A )


(Fig. 3-27 Completing the wizard )

Your PC is now set up for a USB connection to the VAS 5054A and ready for use with your diagnostic application.

Thread: Vas5054a USB not showing up on device manager


I have brought a ODIS VAS 5054A cable with ok cool, good board and good Bluetooth.

The problem is that I tried to connect it over Bluetooth, which I was able to in the manager. Then I opened odis and would try diagnostics but odis could not find the interface

So I would try with USB. But when I turn off Bluetooth and plug in the USB, then nothing happens. I have also tried on Linux and it does not seem like the interface gets an connection to the computer at all.

I have tried different USB cables and I have looked on the PCB, but everything looks ok.

What can it be?

Rely: you have to re-identify ur interface by odis it self in Car Diagnostic Tool option to the right side column when you wanna change the connection.

How To Solved Odis Engineering cannot be run under VMWARE

Question:VAS5054A Odis-E 7.2.2 can’t run under VMware?

When I try to run Odis-E 7.2.2 it says “This program cannot be run under VMWARE”


Close VMWare
Go to your virtual machine folder
Make a backup of your VMWare virtual machine file (.vmx) and rename it xxxx_backup.vmx or something like that
Open the original .vmx file in Notepad and add the following text all the way at the bottom:


isolation.tools.getPtrLocation.disable = “TRUE”
isolation.tools.setPtrLocation.disable = “TRUE”
isolation.tools.setVersion.disable = “TRUE”
isolation.tools.getVersion.disable = “TRUE”
monitor_control.disable_directexec = “TRUE”
monitor_control.disable_chksimd = “TRUE”
monitor_control.disable_ntreloc = “TRUE”
monitor_control.disable_selfmod = “TRUE”
monitor_control.disable_reloc = “TRUE”
monitor_control.disable_btinout = “TRUE”
monitor_control.disable_btmemspace = “TRUE”
monitor_control.disable_btpriv = “TRUE”
monitor_control.disable_btseg = “TRUE”
usb:0.present = “TRUE”
usb:0.deviceType = “hid”
usb:0.port = “0”
usb:0.parent = “-1”

Save it, close it.
Then it will work again. I’ve got ETKA8, Elsawin 6, ODIS-S 4.2.3 and ODIS-E 7.2.2 running in just one virtual machine at Windows 7 x86.

Warning: VMware Car Diagnostic Tool will not work anymore, so no easy/copy paste anymore. Be creative on that problem, for example use your automatic syncing cloud-storage or something like that.


This solution ODIS VAS 5054A  worked for me

I added this to my .vmx files and seems to do the trick
Odis 7.2.2 now running in virtual machine
monitor_control.restrict_backdoor = “TRUE”
