Alientech K-Suite Software

Next generation software

The first time you use KESSv2 you realize just how easy and quick it is to get updates, download operating manuals, start reading an ECU, manage files, and write the right file at the right moment. You never have to worry about the Checksum or how to make a connection. KESS Suite, the software supplied with the OBD Programmer, helps you choose the car, the bike, the truck, the tractor, or the ECU you want to tune.

Cars, Bikes, Trucks and Tractors

KESSv2 can use new communication protocols not only for cars and bikes but also for commercial and agricultural vehicles.

The main screen of the software gives you instant access to several protocols enabled on your tool, as well as to the best diagnostic systems. When you click on the desired button, the screen is replaced by a detailed list of vehicles and you can start working immediately.

Recovery and automatic functions

KESSv2 doesn’t waste your time: before beginning any writing to a file, KESSv2 corrects the Checksum, checks and removes errors in the ECU, tests battery tension, perceives whether there is the risk of losing injector codes and saves them, and only then starts the writing. You made a mistake? The Recovery function allows you to reset the ECU completely.
