The following picture is the package of Nissan Consult III plus I ordered from China.
In the case box, it contains: Nissan Consult 3 plus, 16pin Cable, Nissan 14PIN cable, USB cable, Bluetooth adapter, Power Supply. And no contain Battery registration card and monitor as some friends expect.
I have one additional Panasonic toughbook to have the software be loaded, and reinstall the windows system Windows XP as uobdii.com engineer suggest (wish they will have software compatible with win7.) By the way, during I copy the software, the driver is lost, and then I am asked to download the software from: http://www.chinaautodiag.com/html/nissan-consult-3-plus-v3211-software-free-download-460.html
Next step is to install and set Bluetooth, consult iii plus is easy to install as long as you follow the instructions or the video demo (like uobdii.com, they create user manual in the file and take video), therefore I have nothing to say here about installation.
The following parts are all about the test result about Workable car models, functions and update.
1)Workable car models test result：
Nissan Consult-3 plus is the best and newest Nissan diagnostic tool, Up to 2013 year Nissan Consult 3 plus work with the car (Nissan consult 3 is cheaper, but it can only do Nissan cars before 2011) and it can do a part of Renault cars before 2011, but I mainly use it to work with Nissan.
2)Function test result:
A)Nissan Consult-3 plus is mainly used to diagnose Nissan car electronic system , it works with obd-16 connector for the new kind of car, work with 14 pin connector for the old kind of car.
B)I tested successfully it can calculate pin code for key programming, it can also make key but need to get one additional Nissan Consult-3 Plus Security Card, otherwise the button “Immobilizer key” is gray color and is unavailable, Nissan Consult-3 Plus Security Card is expensive to me, so I didn’t order one, but borrow one from my friends and use together with consult3 plus.
C)Also I borrow one GTR card to work together with consult3 plus and successfully diagnose, ECU program and immobilizer program for Nissan GTR cars.
D)I used it to program ECU for Nissan Altima 2.5L year 2012 and not satisfying, so I suggest not use Consult-3 plus to program ECU, it cannot work as well as the professional ECU programmers, although some users said it can programming ECU without additional card.
E)Consult-3 plus can support Leaf.
F)It can’t change an odometer reading with Consult-3 plus mainly a diagnostic tool, if you need to change your odometer, you can refer to Digimaster 3,Digiprog 3,Tacho Pro 2008
G)I heard some people say it can program TCM and DCM, and I confirm with UOBD2, the engineer answer yes, but I have to get one additional programming file from other suppliers, wish someone can tell me where to get?
3)Update test result:
I can update consult3 plus, when the newest version software release, I will receive an email attached with the newest software, I download and update it, the update is free of charge.
The last and not least suggestion, I think after-sales tech support is very essential, therefore, you have better confirm the seller can provide you tech support if you buy this tool when you have problems, so far the Chinese sellers I know have tech support, such as: uobdii.com and Chinavasion, etc.
Wish my personal experience with Nissan consult III plus will be helpful if you are considering get one.
