the OBD is just an extension of the MAX
it is a wireless OBD vehicular interface that provides diagnostic reporting and manipulation as well as containing immobilizer programming capabilities.
if a key cannot be cloned or all keys lost then OBD is used
it also has some other functions like odometer corrections and adaptive resets
The underlying goal here is to provide you a single system which will guide you through creating a functional key and get it programmed to the vehicle.
Step 1: Read the vehicle data (VIN & immobilizer) via OBD utilizing the Mini OBD Tool and Key Tool Max (required)
Step 2: View the remote and transponder chip information for the vehicle you’re plugged into, directly from the Key Tool Max tablet. Utilize that information to instantly generate your chip and key.
Step 3: View the proper keyway (on the Key Tool Max) for cutting on the Dolphin and cut your blade (once you’ve Lishi’d to determine your cuts).
Step 4: Take your completed key back to the vehicle for immobilizer programming with the Mini OBD Tool and Key Tool Max.
Step 5: Profit!
