KESS3
The Ultimate ECU Tuning Tool

KESS3 - ECU Programming & Remapping

KESS3 is a tool used for ECU programming and remapping, allowing users to modify the engine control unit (ECU) of a vehicle in order to improve its performance. This is typically done by adjusting various parameters such as the fuel-to-air ratio, boost pressure, and ignition timing through ECU remapping.

The KESS3 tool is also capable of TCU programming and can be used for OBD programming, making it a versatile option for mechanics and car enthusiasts looking to fine-tune the engine of a vehicle for better power and efficiency. KESS3 can be used in both OBD mode and bench mode, making it a convenient choice for ECU remapping and performance tuning.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How can I interface and program the control units?
With KESS3 you can program the engine control units (ECU) or transmission control unit (TCU) in three different ways:

OBD – With the OBD mode, you can easily access all the ECU data through the diagnostic socket.

BENCH – With the Bench mode you can access the ECU data directly from the connector

BOOT – With Boot mode, with the engine control unit opened, you could connect directly to all the memories of ECU/TCU.

2. What is the difference between Master and Slave?
As a Master user, you can read the files in clear. This allows you to operate independently in order to remap and reprogram the ECU with modified files. As a slave user, only your master will be able to decrypt your files. (Recommended choice for taking the first steps in chiptuning, supported by your Master)

3. What types of vehicles are supported?
Alientech supports hundreds of thousands of vehicles. Not only engine control units, but also transmission control units equipped on cars, motorcycles, tractors, trucks and boats. To know all the vehicles that Alientech supports, you can easily consult our vehicle list.
