This guy has a US phone but is in Austria I think. Apparently, he is an authorized dealer for the company that actually created the BUDS system, which is used by a number of manufactures. I got the Roadster license, there are others available. There recently has been talk about disabling the DESS module because of the problem not being fixed yet.
This takes the MegaTech license which few if any CanAm dealers buy. The Megatech license from Powersports-diag. The address appears to be a vacant field near Portland, OR. I emailed with this guy, that I think is actually in Australia. He sent me a one week trial Megatech license, but couldn't tell me how to install it. He more or less said that it worked for him figure it out.
I then emailed diag-systems. I'm sure there are other stuff too. So I hope this info helps. Does the KEY then work like in the good old days Originally Posted by cuznjohn. Just to clarify "The Megatech license from Powersports-diag.
Regards Paul. This is all pretty neat information. But my "Spyder-Senses" are tingling. I can't help but think about Pandora; and the box that she opened I have not done that yet but have the option. Bill the cable and software is necessary and the Austrian company cheaper option doesn't give you access to all of BUDS. I already have the MPI2 as that was all that was available last year.
I was told by the Austrian guy, who I think is also legit, that the MPI3 is "faster and more secure, no need to upgrade".
As others have said you need the interface which comes with the wiring to connect your computer and the bike. The BRP software is free, version 3. As far as some being bootleg, the Austrian guy did say that the other two are bootleg, however, when you get a license from them, it is for your interface module only and it expires.How To Pull the P-Codes on a Can Am
Jet Ski Plus. The key code is a 20 digit alpha numeric string that is generated by a key code generator. This information is processed by the generator and it outputs the 20 digit key code. Entering this key code into the BUDS software unlocks the functionality. The secret ingredient to the recipe is the key code generator. They would then be given the key code to enter into the BUDS software. I assume the BRP answer desk entered the information into the key code generator while the dealer was on the phone with them.
This was the process for BUDS version 2. They now provide key code generation via their dealer access only website BossWeb. Here is the rub.
The key code is only valid for a specific MPI. It will not work on a different MPI. Additionally, the key code has an expiration date built into the code. The key code will not work beyond the expiration date.
BRP typically sets this time to one year. Once the key code expires, the dealer must go on line and generate a new key code that again will expire in a year. So, every year the key code must be changed for BUDS versions 2 or 3.
If you do not enter the key code within the 24 hour period, it becomes invalid. The main difference with this change is the BUDS version 3 security features makes the BUDS system no longer transferrable to a new or different computer once the key code expires.
I am not suggesting you purchase a BUDS system. The software is licensed to BRP dealers only. Again, either BUDS version 2 or 3 typically expires in a year and with version 3 you must enter the key code with 24 hours of key code generation.
Now, for the type of access granted. However, the key code is generated in such a way that only that portion of the software that the dealer is authorized for by BRP is unlocked. The software for the other product lines are present in the BUDS program, the key code simply prevents the dealer from accessing them or even seeing that they exist.
There are a couple levels of BUDS access beyond what the dealers can access. As you might guess, these access levels provide more functionality in the BUDS system and are not available to dealers.
The Megatech level has the most functionality. Hence the level name Megatech. Similar to how the key code controls what product line a dealer has access to, the key code determines if the above levels are accessible as well.Welcome to world's most trustworthy automotive forum.
