Some time ago I’ve heard about the legendary  software, thanks to which many users were able to make improvements to their Duster … the display of the clock on the CdB, the consumption in km / l or more in l / 100km, cornering activation and other useful things.

DDT4all is an open-source program with a friendly graphical interface. With this program and a CAN network with a cheap ELM327 interface, you can access various control devices and change parameters via the OBD interface. For example, functions can be unlocked that are actually withheld from other models (eg comfort indicators, permanent tacho lighting).  Using the application in nonexpert mode should not be harmful to your vehicle (leave the expert mode button released)
The author declines all responsibility for the bad use of this tool. You are the only responsible. This tool is mainly aimed at CAN ISO_TP network study.

ATTENTION

The devices discussed in this manual, software, and methods for working with them are not released by the car manufacturer.

The potentially unrestrained use can lead to work interruptions or failure, both individual units and components of the car, as well as the car as a whole, they can also be a reason to reduce the level of vehicle safety and reject the warranty service.

Anyone who chooses to do experiments on their car needs to understand all the risks and only take them on board.

I am not responsible for any damage caused to users of this manual and third parties.

And now if you are ok, we can start with basic changes that we will cover in this article:

Preliminary operations

What will we need, first of all?

  •  An OBD2 interface ( ELM327 V1.5 mandatory with PIC 18F25K80) compatible, whether it is USB, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, you can read about the versions here;
    • The correct driver for the interface in case of USB can be Prolific USB – SERIAL and can be download from the ℹLINK
  •  A laptop PC with Windows (tested with 7 and 10);
  •  The DDT4ALL software, which you will find(version 5.3.5 updated to 20.01.2019 by Zmiterm) or the official owner Cedricp GitHub release ✅DOWNLOAD ℹLINK HERE for all the DDT4ALL + DACIA database last tested + PYREN and driver necessary for USB ELM OBD SCANNER
  •  A minimum of computer skills, otherwise it is better to leave it alone …

Once the program is downloaded we need to install it in our PC as we do for any software, then double click on the icon, click on the English language, click again on next, next, at this point we check the box “create an icon on the desktop and then on go ahead, and then install, then finish Now we can get familiar with DDT4ALL trying to modify the various parameters in the “DEMO” version (so we will not change anything and we can do it even without attaching the OBD2 to the machine). Click on the icon that we find on the desktop after its installation. A white window will open that we will leave alone and shortly after another small window with the various connection selection options, we just click at the bottom and center of the box on the word “Demo” (Figure 1).

In the database we will find different types of control unit:

Now, we need to choose our Duster model car by:

  • X79 – Duster (which corresponds to the first model released, ergo from 201 to 2013);
  •  X79Ph2 – Duster Ph2 (relative to restyling, ie from 2014 to 2017);
  •  XJD – Duster II (current model, which is what we will be working on today).

Now it’s time for modifications:

  1.  Display the temperature on the on-board computer and change the consumption reading from L / 100KM to KM / L + Overspeed warning alarm
  2. Make the clock appear on the CD;
  3.  Cornering activation;
  4. Deactivation of seat belt warning (the author of the guide has not personally tested this change);
  5.  Automatic rear window wiping deactivated with reverse gear engaged.
  6. LIGHTS WELCOME AND GOODBYE
  7. Rain Sensor for auto wiping
  8. Start & Stop Disable
  9. Doors auto blocked
  10. Disable/Enable Keyless Go Horn (Duster2)
  11. MultiView Camera Shutdown Speed ​​Change (Duster2)
  12. Auto window closing
  13. DISABLE FREESHIFT
  14. HSA ENABLE
  15. ANTI HIJACK and other parameters of the central locking
  16. Disabling DRL when turning on the turn signal
  17. The inclusion of rear dimensions in conjunction with DRL
  18. The sound of the alarm when you turn on / off the standard security system

1. Display the temperature on the on-board computer and change the consumption reading from L / 100KM to KM / L + Overspeed warning alarm

For the modification of KM / L (Trip computer – mileage / volume) follow:

Cluster / TDB> CMFB Cluster v6.08> [Cluster / TDB] CMFB Cluster v6.08> Ecrans Configuration> Conf Prestations VEH> in the screen that appears go to the TripComputerType_CF line and insert the word “mileage / volume”> click on Computer Type> click on the Reset SW: 11 box.

For temperature (External Temperature) follow:

Cluster / TDB> CMFB Cluster v6.08> [Cluster / TDB] CMFB Cluster v6.08> Ecrans Configuration> Conf Prestations VEH> in the screen that appears we go to the ExternalTeperature_CF line and insert the words “External Temp Measurement and Display”> click on Temperature Exterieure> click on the Reset SW: 11 box.

For Speed warning alarm follow:

  • As far as Cornering is concerned, to have a better and more functional result, we need to enter these parameters and each time we have to click on the “Send” box:
    Cxx_A1_angle_CF => “60”
    Cxx_A2_angle_CF => “15”
    Cxx_CorneringSpeed_CF => “40”
    Cxx_dimming_time_CF => “300”
    Cxx_MAX_power_PWM_ratio_CF => “100”
    Cxx_min_power_PWM_ratio_CF => “50”
  • Cornering may not work on some ECUs.

10.Disable/Enable Keyless Go Horn (Duster2)

In the Handsfree control unit (T4_VS_HFM_2_DDT …) under HornJungle, HornJungle – Configuration, set the parameter “WAC_JINGLE_CF” to “false” and press “Send” on the right.

The horn can also be shortened by reducing the values ​​of the parameters “FEEDBACK_WAC_1_TM_CF (ms)” (first horn) and “FEEDBACK_WAC_2_TM_CF (ms)” (second horn). Less than 5 ms does not sound.

The time between the horns can be changed with “WAC_MUTE_TM_CF (ms)”.

11.MultiView Camera Shutdown Speed ​​Change (Duster2)

The shutdown speed can be set between 0 and 50 km / h. How to connect to the MVC controller is described here: Configuring MediaNav (Evolution) .

In the MVC control unit (HJD_MVC …) under Diagnostic, 2_MVC_Configuration, change the parameter “Deactivation speed” and at the bottom right, press “Write Configuration”.

12.Autowindow closing

DDT4ALL PATH

13. DISABLE FREESHIFT

Cluster / TDB> CMFB Cluster v6.08> [Cluster / TDB] CMFB Cluster v6.08> Ecrans Configuration> Conf_1 Prestations IHM> in the screen that appears we go to the FREESHIFTMANAGEMENTCF line and set the “WITHOUT FREESHIFT”> click on FREESHIFT> click on SAVE.

14. HSA ENABLE

ABS / ESC> ABS ESC v3.8> 1.Configuration> 11 – ECU CONFIGURATION> in the screen that appears we go to the FREESHIFTMANAGEMENTCF line  the parameter “HSA function act./deact.” set to “Activated” and press “Write HSA CONFIG“. .

15. ANTI HIJACK and other parameters of the central locking

If you activate the ANTI_HIJACK_CF function , then the following will happen:
1) when you press the “unlock doors” button on the vehicle keyfob once, the standard security system will be disabled, while the doors will remain locked, when this button is pressed again, the doors will be unlocked.
2) when one of the doors is opened from the inside, with the central lock turned on, only the open door will be unlocked, and the remaining doors will remain locked to open them from the outside.

BCM/UCH> T4 VS BCM DDT v29> [BCM/UCH] T4 VS BCM DDT V29>DOORLOCK → Doorlock – configuration in the screen that appears we go to the ANTI_HIJACK_CF (-)  set to “TRUE” and press “SEND“.

EXTRA: Disabling DRL when turning on the turn signal

UPC-EMM> T4 EMM VS v2.3> [UPC-EMM] T4 EMM VS v2.3> ExternalLighting_Generic> Nbx_DRL_closedto_ID_CF set to “TRUE” and press “SEND“.

EXTRA 2:The sound of the alarm when you turn on / off the standard security system

EXTRA 3:The RES (REMOTE ENGINE START) system for automatically start the engine by programming the car from MEDIANAV

BCM/UCH> T4 VS BCM DDT v29> [BCM/UCH] T4 VS BCM DDT V29>REMOTE ENGINE START → REMOTE ENGINE START – configuration – NOT TESTED YET

Important: After you changed everything is mandatory to: Read error with Read DTC (heart icon from top)

Most control units must be reset after parameter changes by means of a software or hardware reset for the changes to take effect. You should then read the fault memory of all ECUs, as it can lead to error entries when certain data in the CAN bus are unavailable while the controller reboots.

This can be done with the “Read DTC” button (orange heart) and then clear the errors with “Clear ALL DTC”. You have to do it separately for each controller:

I hope that you like our little hacks and if you need more assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

  1. hi, the link you put on just goes through to google translate… any way you can update it please?

    “The DDT4ALL software, which you will find at this link (version 5.1.6 updated to 09/23/2018);”

  2. dove trovo [EMM] EMM_EDISION_DDT2000_SW13 → EMM_Lighting → EMM_Lighting-Configuration → Nbx_DRL_closedto_ID_CF → modifica da 0 a 1 → fai clic sul pulsante “Invia”

    ??? grazie

  3. Grazie..! C’è possibilità di diminuire la luminosità della DRL quando si inserisce indicatore di direzione? Grazie

      1. Yes i have a Duster 2..it would be nice to be able to lower the brightness of the DRL when using direction indicator, not turn off completely but decrease intensity

      2. Hello. I turned the dial lighting of my Stepway 2017 model car. Thank you. But when I open the parks, the screen light doesn’t need to double, how do I fix it.

    1. Hello,
      If i understood well you deactivated the drl and is not enable only on auto? on the 2nd position is working or in 3rd?

      You can check if NBX_DRL_ACTIVE_CF and NBX_DRL_WITH_LED_CF is TRUE

      1. Hi…
        Position 0 ( auto.) = DRL not work. Light sensor ok
        Position 1 = DRL low light ok work with rear light
        Position 2 = DRL work with bulb Light ok

        1. Perfetto, Please share with us what you modified wrong in order to not make the same mistake also others ;). Thanks for feedback!

          About new modifications I will put here everything new that I will find ;).

        1. Freeshift means the indicator that shows you when to change the gear up or down in the cluster. HSA is hill assist assistance and is the system from abs that helps you by blocking the wheels for ~5sec in order to not go back. I hope that now is clear for you what are this facilities.

    1. Hello, Usually it supposed to close the windows when you push more than once on the clossing doors button, or hold it. Unfortunately on my Dustet is misssing some automation modules so the function is not doing anything. I hope that it was helpfully.

      1. Thank you. Then I will disable it again.

        Another question. I have activated the time presentation on tacho display. But I had to set up the time manually. I thought the time is automatically taken from the source media nav is using too. Is there a way to connect the time information so tacho and media nav show the same value?

        1. Unfortunately i’m not sure that you can do it automatically to change the hour based on the medianav. If I see tomorrow something new I will come back later with the update. Thanks for feedbacks!

  4. Hello, I am very interested in your works. Big thanks for sharing. I have one question about RES (Remote Engine Start) I tried to activate it on hidden medianav menu, i see settings in medianav, but it do not work, I have all required states (Petrol, keyless, free gear position, but still do not work. Even try to activate like there is guide for Renault Captur. RES activation using keyless key works, but to start engine remotely do not work. Maybe you can give me some advise what I am missing? Do I need any FUSE maybe or it should be activated using DDT4All? Thanks!

    I have Dacia Duster II Prestige 1.6 Sce Manual.

    1. Thanks for all your support. About this topic I’m not tested until yet because is not so simple to activate it. Usually the activation only from MEDIANAV is not giving you a real deal because it seems that some computer parts are missing, especially for the EUROPE part (especially activated only for Russia and the UAE). I’ve speaked with some mechanicals/specialists from the services but nobody tryied this functionality ever. ASAP as I have some new I will puted here. Also i’ve updated the modifications list with extra 3 with the functionalities from DDT4ALL that can be activated regarding this topic. If someone tryied them, please share the result with us.

  5. On Duster II it is normal to be on all the time. You can only reduce the dimmer light when you are switch on the headlights but the dimmer can’t be putted on off..

    1. to all other duster ii available in my country (Greece). the tail lights only turn on when you turn the switch to position 1 and 2.

      1. Sorry, I’m was thinking that you are speaking about the dimmer.
        Regarding the taild lights also in romania all the cars are on only when you put in 2 and 3 position. If you modified something you can check UPC-EMM> T4 EMM VS v2.3> [UPC-EMM] T4 EMM VS v2.3> ExternalLighting_Generic> Nbx_SCANDINAV_RUNNING_LIGHTS_CF or Nbx_CANADIAN_CF or NBX_SWISS_CF to be on FALSE and Nsx_rear_tail_with_DRL_CF to be FALSE. If you find something else .. please tell me.

  6. I’ve 2018 Duster 1.5 dci EDC Prestige+Blind Spot Warning+Media Nav+Rear Camera+Keyless Go+Automatic Climate Control etc. in Turkey and like it very much.

    I tried number 3,5,7 and 10 succesfully. I hope Automatic Wiper Works in real rain well. Thank you very much.

    I really need Automatic Window Closing (AWC). I also tried AWC but couldn’t run it. Has anybody tried with prestige package?

    RES (REMOTE ENGINE START) also seems very good but couldnt run it. In 2019 Duster it has special button I think. (

    ) Would it be possible to run RES for 2018 Duster and with which button?

    1. Thanks for feedback my friend and I’m happy for you. Unfortunately regarding the automatic window is not working because are missing some elechtrical parts intalled on the circuit and regardin the starting remote I think is not developed for our hot countries. Maybe we need to learn and follow the russian websites in order to see some updates about it. Keep in touch!

  7. Congratulations for your great work.So far I have tested 4 points and all worked perfectly. Could you please provide some more info regarding point 9. (Doors auto blocked)? What is the exact functionality? Also the command provided seems to be the one for point 8. (StartStop activation)

        1. Unfortunately I didn’t test it but I want to remember you that there are some parts wehn you don’t have access with ddt and cand be irreversible. After this you need to go to service and activate only with licensed interface and software.

  8. About that temperature and clock setting on instrument cluster – is it always that CMFB Cluster… or it can be that Cluster_L1… in case i have that full (which comes in PRESTIGE version of Duster)
    instrument cluster ?

    1. On my ddt4all when I’m selected Duster II HJD on TDB I have only CMFB cluster. I think that if you selected ALL the cars and you will choose another cluster it will work also. I remember that I used at some time the GB CLUSTER and it works to put the temperature in the new prestige black computer of board.

      1. Ok, that was in DEMO mode. Unfortunately I’m not able to connect neither via Chinese ELM327 bluetooth interface (it connects and works fine from some mobile app), neither via DELPHI usb device.
        DDT is trying some speeds and then shows something like ‘No ELM found’ or something.
        Dunno how to troubleshoot 🙁

  9. Where can I turn it on the GPS based speed, and height showing function in Medianav? And in the Vehicle info the total fuel usage showing function?

  10. Hello. I turned the dial lighting of my Stepway 2017 model car. Thank you. But when I open the parks, the screen light doesn’t need to double, how do I fix it.

  11. Hello, thanks for your manual. I’m from Hungary. After installation and running of program “ddt4all Dacia” my problem is:

  12. Szia, nekem megy szépen, magyar nyelvű win7 alatt. Csatlakozni kell bluetooton és nem a demó módra menni hanem a csatlakozási módra! Emailban megtalalsz amibe tudok segítek.

  13. Szia, köszi, megoldódott. Vettem egy új wifis obd-t, ami kapcsolódik az ecu tweakerhez telefonon. Be tudtam állítani, amit kell 🙂

  14. hello, when drl is on automaticit light 100%, but when i turn on the lights it dimmer it maybe on 70%. can i make it work 100% all time?

  15. Salut am descarcat și eu ddt4all am un cablu usb OBD v1. 5 luat de pe techstar și nu reusesc sa îl conectez la mașină.. Mulțumesc

    1. Daca nu il vezi in meniul de ddt4all ca si com disponibil inseamna ca driverul nu este cel potrivit. Trebuie cautat mai mult. Eu am reusit cu un driver de “prolific” daca imi amintesc bine

  16. I changed the instrument panel and now I have a button to activate the hill descent control function. However, the function does not work! Can I activate this feature somewhere with ddt4all Dacia?

    1. The additional activations like temperature, hill or 4×4 and others needs an additional multiplexer to be installed. If this hw is missing you cannot use them. It is already written in the article.

  17. Hello. I try to activate sound when turning on/off alarm in Duster II (2019). Without success 🙁 . I have Falcon 9152 Alarm. Is this hidden function sure and tested in DD2? When i scan ECU it shows that my version is T4 vs BCM BIS v13. Software is ECU Tweaker. I didnt tested ddt4all yet. Is it important? Another functions work (rear wipper, temperature & clock on main display too). What did i do wrong?

    Adam

    1. You mean about bip bip or alarm after service ???

      I activated all of them but the sound of hor bipping is activated only on keylessgo (card). In my case of DUSTER with key is not doing anything regarding sound but, if you close the car and getting out from inside the urgency blips are activated like an alarm.

      I speak about: EXTRA 2:The sound of the alarm when you turn on / off the standard security system . If the answear is not what you are looking please tell me.

  18. I think about beep sound when i close/open car with remote standard key (no keyless). I have got optional perimetric alarm mounted. Handsfree/keyless has low tone horn, beep is a high tone sound.

  19. Wich dashboard do you have?? Blue small screen or big black screen. On blue is appearing only an indicator that is opened but nut which one. In the latest version black one and especially from 2020 i’ve seen that is showing you wich one is opened.
