How to Configure Nissan Consult III+ with Passthru Devices?

Here are tips to configure Nissan Consult software for J2534 Passthru devices (vas5054a, openport, vxdiag, pcmtuner, sm2 pro, godiag j2534, jbox2 etc).


Here comes a free Nissan Consult iii+ V75.15 software. Free to test with j2534 devices.


VAS 5054A:

Install the driver for J2534 VAS5054

Connecting VAS5054 custom program Manager to manage devices J2534.

Install the program, as an example, Consult 3 plus v.46.11.00 or fresh.

Append the following lines to the file C:CONSULT-III_plusSystemApplicationApplicationDataCommonSettingDiagnosticTool.ini

………….[device]vi_device_name=VAS5054#(here should be the serial number)


;vi_device_name=PassThru+ XS


– no need push the “connect” button inside the programm settings
For vas5054, pin 8 is empty.
For this reason the ignition key can not detect the position.

You need to replace the vas5054 1-pin peg with the 8-pin peg.

and don’t forget about the adapter, according to the scheme below, in order not to burn.For older (before 2000 (approximately) – it will not work!! only for fresh. Just in case – pinout OBD II VAG & Nissan.

Some also contacted nexiq usb link and tested it on the car. You can get communicated with the vehicle. But if do not make the 8 pin change, so you will get a “ignition error” error.



Old FVDI 2014 also tested working with Nissan Consult+

FVDI J2534 Possible to work with Nissan Consult? How to?

both KTS and Jbox2 (cardaq plus2). Both works. Just change the INI file to the name of the exact name of your device. Following is the setting for J-box2. So change the device name to your device name.

[current_channel]channel=0[system_management]access_mode=1[device]vi_device_name=J-box 2[mode]debug_mode=TRUE

“tab_index=1” seems the key to make jbox2 especially. Another thing is that you don’t need change the name of Jbox2 folder to nissan_VI2. Just copy the name of device (in this case “J-Box 2″) and paste to the vi_device_name in INI file. so it gonna be vi_device_name-J-Box 2”.

the R2R version it like Xentry passthru for nissan cars, cardaq tested, support all Consult 3 plus functions



Scanmatik Pro

In C:CONSULT-III_plusSystemApplicationApplicationDataCommonSettingDiagnosticTool.ini
you need to add exactly two lines with the name of the adapter :

For USB connection :[device]vi_device_name=SM2 USB

For BT connection :[device]vi_device_name=SM2 Bluetooth #Axxxxx

Start the program and go to adapter selection, if
the adapter appeared – select it and click “Close” (“Connect” do not click!) Be sure to connect the adapter to the car, the real CAN bus must be present!




it is the same as Scanmatik pro. It has been tested working with Nissan software.




VXDIAG can be used as a j2534 passthru. Nissan Consult+ v75 has been tested working no problem with vxdiag vcx se.


Renault Interface:

Renault Interace is same nissan V13, you can test any nissan C3+ any version latest then you will know or here the tip u can replace it at

You modify registry and diagnostictool file to add your interface name exactly as it is in the registry. When your interface is connected to the car, then the laptop, then open c3+ and most likely your interface will not show as being connected. So you go into the program and select vi/mi. DO NOT SELECT CONNECT. The program will freeze up. Just click on the interface that shows up serial number 1234567 and then select cancel and you should now see your interface showing as connected in the home screen of c3+. You should then be able to use the program but if you back out to the home screen you will see that your interface does not show up as connected. Seems like it disconnects itself but as long as you follow same steps and NEVER select connect when you are in the select vi/mi menu because you do not want the program to freeze.


Nissan Consult+ works with many j2534 devices but not fully function. A few other j2534 devices with no problems other than the live data issue and sometimes will not read vin number or it will read vin number but it will not decode it correctly.


The bottom line is that any j2534 does not work properly for C3P. You can not do programming.  If you just trying to do scanning, j2534 works for C3P. If you are looking for another function such as programming and bi-directional test etc, forget it about it. There is no way other than genuine C3P VI2. If you are dealing with 2018 up car, R2R software from nissan will works for both programming and scanning. R2R software works with J2534.
