Who has Star?

Who has the Star Diagnostic System and is willing to help fellow members? If so, add your name here and where you are located.

If you are trying to trouble shoot a problem or would like a feature setting changed, I can help. I am located in Virginia - in the northwestern part, a little west of Manassas, Virginia. PM me and we can set up a time. The equipment is Star C4, 5/2014 version, with Developer mode. If you have a lot to do - bring lunch. ;>}

Damn son, you are still looking for someone? Sorry I was on the west coast instead of the east coast this summer Well, maybe once we build a list of people from those who register as owners of DAS we can see if there is one on the east coast.

...And if there is not if you are willing to fly me down here I would be more than happy to help you out!

My airfare would be less than Akonion's, but I would prefer to come down in January/February.

What exactly are you wanting to do that will require developer mode?

Jerry,

I can not, but Sean may be able to. He should be along in a bit and hopefully he will chime in here.

Do you also have the hardware located in the trunk area that reads the signals from the tire sending units and passes that data to the rear SAM?

And, based on how much help you have already been to many members, is it safe to say that you are willing to help if someone needs a hookup to SDS?

Also, Jerry had a question in post #9 that you may be able to answer.

Das/Star in S. Fla?

I too am looking for someone in Southeast Florida with DAS who (at the suggestion of mchild) might be able to help me get my window control module working.

Any advice would sure be appreciated.

In addition to your post here you should also get yourself listed in the Official DAS/Star Owners List. It is a separate topic heading in the same subsection of DAS/Star.

Thee is no official user manual but we have a topic in this section that has common tasks detailed. And of course you can always ask a question if you have something specific you would like to do.

Thanks for volunteering to help fellow SLK owners.
