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 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 non expert mode should not be harmful for your vehicle (leave the expert mode button released)
The author declines all responsibility about a bad use of this tool. You are the only responsible. This tool is mainly aimed for 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 link, read more about here
  •  A laptop PC with Windows (tested with 7 and 10);
  •  The DDT4ALL software, which you will find at this link (version 5.3.5 updated to 20.01.2019 );
  •  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 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).

If you already see how the software is working, it’s time for going to the car with the laptop and connect the OBD ELM327 to the OBD CAN slot:

DUSTER 2019 ECU OBD LOCATION

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

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:

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 OverspeedWArning Preset line and insert the words “With Overspeed warning (GCC countries)”> click on Overspeed warning> click on the Reset SW: 11 box.

Important: To be able to send the command, press the top left button with Einstein’s smile and then, after changing the parameters from the drop-down menu, first press the “send command” button and then “reset”. Once the change has been implemented, the Duster framework switches off and then switches back on.

2. Display the clock on the on-board computer

For this change we follow the path:

Cluster / TDB> CMFB Cluster v6.08> [Cluster / TDB] CMFB Cluster v6.08> Ecrans Configuration> Conf_2 Prestations IHM> in the screen that appears we go to the Clock_CF line and set the “Clock displayed and set / RTC ON”> click on Clock button> click on Reset SW: 11.
Then Clock_CF and select the third item starting from the top down from the drop-down menu, first press the “clock” key and then “reset“. Once the change has been implemented, the Duster framework switches off and then switches back on.

3. Cornering activation

DUSTER 2019 CORNERING ACTIVATE

The Cornering function turns on the fog lights relative to the direction in which they are steered or when the direction indicator is inserted. This is the path:

UPC-EMM> T4 EMM VS v2.3> [UPC-EMM] T4 EMM VS v2.3> Cornering> Cornering – Configuration> in the screen that appears we go to the line Nbx_Cornering_CF and insert “true “> click on Send.

  • 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)”.

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

image-11 Hidden Functions activated with DDT4ALL on your Dacia / Renault Duster II Media Nav Hacks
Read DTC ERRORS

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:

  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);”
