Renault CAN CLiP China clone Reviews

So, has anyone bought Renault CAN CLiP China clone? Here comes the Renault CLiP diagnostic tool review for you to checking what CLIP can do successfully. Thanks to all users for feedback.

users need a laptop with a 1024x768 screen or higher, it needs XP to SP3 installed, all the extra updates shouldnt make any difference.
the reno applications all overlay over each other, so
I think the full package comes in a number of cd/DVD bundles for each model of car covered, so a dedicated laptop is probably recommended, and doing the installation would be fine.
I originally tried using a notebook but the screen res was too small. Also you will probably need a built in serial port, which does limit the laptops available, as usb serial port.
chinese prolific cheap knock off clone types tend not to work well, as prolific have boobytrapped their drivers to do a self test and if they fail they generate an error 10 in windows.
The serial port is needed if you have other plugin tools that need to be used on the car.

for key coding you really should go to a certified autolocksmith, or you could try contacting someone on another garage forum to buy one-shot pre-purchased licenced authorisation keys to do it.
though your still better off going to someone in the autolocksmith business. (at least that way you won
t get ripped off or sold dud keys.)

they are good for basic diags of what is a complex bit of kit, it really is a shame that the measurement unit is not available.

can reprogram the speedo to kmh from mph, by setting the country on the speedo options, but wont be able to revert it back. (I have been told it is possible, but I’m not holding my breath) it would be cheaper to buy another similar speedo off another car in a breakers yard(about 30 to buy) (either as the one to be initially reprogrammed or as one to fall back to when you get back to the UK.)

Yes,chinese can clip can do most of the functions,changing parameters,actuation,coding injectors, throttle body learning etc.The only thing you wont be able is reprogramming engine ecu and uch and retrieving pincodes to program cards and keys(replacing by new ones).To get pincode is very easy if u know your electronics,just read from ecu -not from uch ,much easier to read from ecu as eeprom is more easy to read than dump send to icc within hours youll recieve 12 digit pin,and use clip or sbb to program.There r ways to clone uch or ecus but u need right tool and gud at Electronics,noneed to go dealer,never,from myself 19 years working for Renault as technical coordinator.

There is a V4 of AUTOFORMATION but i didn't learn much from it although if you know nothing at all it's a start.
I've done some testing on Clio 1, 2 ,Lag 1, 2 ,meg 1, 2. Readjusted my xenons, it's good (a must) for bleeding abs brake systems with its actuator tests, tested egr valve with actuator test, entered new valves into TPMS, checked the turbo pressure (can record data off a couple of sensors and store those graphs so you can evaluate it after, for instance speed, rpm, manifold pressure, turbo pressure, throttle position) after new turbo exchange on meg1 dci.
Quite a nice toy.
For other tests like compression test, voltage and some others a secondary unit attached to the Clip is needed i guess.
And of course it works on windows XP only so if on vista or 7 make a dual boot. 

Yip, i've got one, it does every thing the dealer tool does, inc code keys and uch if you have the immob code, done every thing i've asked it to do so far, and thats a lot. Had it about a year now. Got it off ebay for 300 quid. paid for itself several times now.

I bought to that tool. It good for obd testing and quick multiplex diagnose. If you whant to reprog something it asks for a instrument code (7 numbers) and ... I don't know much. I heard that it also asks for other unit code like diesel injection,uchreprogram and radio code. If someone can help me I'll be forever grateful to him. I have Clip v74, v85, v95. Reprog v60 and v83.

its much better than alot of fault code readers out there i also say only use it as a starting point to read codes etc it will not do new key cards it all depends on what you want/use it for if you have a local garage thats cheaper than the main dealer id say use them first

I can see why the cloned Clip may look attractive for DIY work. They're made by illegally copying the hardware/software by deconstructing and remaking them in a similar way to how cassettes are copied. So, its much cheaper than the genuine. but some "Chinglish" can creep in during the process so you cannot be sure that the unit or the software will function properly.

The clone clips work very well with the genuine software. the Chinese software is loaded with bugs. I was fortunate to get a complete genuine set of software and a genuine can clip from a bust garage in another country, so tipped the software from the cloned unit, and used the cloned unit plus the genuine unit on my software.
It has proved invaluable to me with rebuilding Renaults, and both units allow me to do the full spectrum of work and reprogramming. I would purchase the clone from fleabay, but then try and get a set of genuine discs, from someone you know, and use that rather than the software that comes with the cloned unit.
I would be careful scratching around thought, as a wrong setting will immobilise the car, then you would have to re-flash the ECU or BCM unit.

There are four Renaultcan clip china clone versions. Some best-quality, some cheap... For anyone reading the can clip reviews now, youre advised to read the comparison of chinese can clip diagnostic interfaces if you wanna buy one:

Enjoy clipping!

How to Choose Renault CAN CLIP Cheapest & Best-Quality 

There mainly are four kinds of Renault CAN CLiP diagnostic tool from China, designed by different factories, that come with different printed circuited boards (PCBs), some good, some with connection issues.
Note: you are advised to read How to tell good PCBs first:
Type 1: CAN CLIP v162 for Renault - CHEAPEST
This is the NEWEST Renault Clip clone, released on Dec. 2016. It is only for $105, the CHEAPEST version, compared to others. Work no issues of the basic obdii functions.
Type 2: Renault CAN Clip diagnostic interface - HIGH QUAILTY
This is the BEST quality but most expensive CLIP with the AN2131QC chip, for $135. -So far no issues on reading all the information relating to the vehicle, diagnosing Renault cars models including automatically test all Renault models' computers, reporgramming, airbag test and other functions.
Type 3: Renault CAN CLiP V162 - the MOST Populous
CAN CLIP with PCBs designed as above is the MOST POPULOUS version of chinese copies.
Almost Renault models are tested by users and technicians, like Clio II, Laguna II, Laguna III, Scenic II, New Twingo, Megane Scenic, Spider, etc (both no issues of obd2 diagnostics and ecu reprogramming.)
So, it can also be the SAFETEST version to use on cars.
Type 4: Quality A+++ Can Clip for Renault because of the AN2135SC chip.
In the PCB, engineers add the high quality chip CYPRESS AN2135SC or CYPRESS AN2136SC.
The new chip AN2135SC/AN2136SC solved communication issues of old CLIP (esp. the most populous version sp19-b). That make CLIP work more stable and can be used for a longer time
Using other versions of Renault CLIP, the diagnostic interface will disconnect if users have no operation for 10 minutes around after successful communication to the car.
With this new CAN CLIP for Renault, the issue solved, with the chip AN2135SC/AN2136SC. This is the PCB with new design.
So that it can works no issues as the original. That is, it’s the BEST-QUALITY Renault CLIP china clone.
--> Conclusion:
All CLIP versions above only differs in PCBs and price. All have been tested without issues on Automatic test of all computers, Physical measurements, OBD diagnostic tests, Airbag test,Antipollution, MultimeterinEnglish/ German/ Brazil/ Denish/ Spanish/ Finnish/ French/ Italian/ Norwegian/ Dutch/ Portuguese/ Romania/Swedish.
Read the following tips if you decide to buy items from China.
Tip 1: Quality & Price
In China, you can get anything - at/for any price, problem is that you will have to accept the quality. "You get what you pay for" - And this is more or less true, there will be always someone somewhere "trying to" do it for less, but there are thresholds and once you step under them, you will have to suffer from the results. Quality of a product also depends on the material you purchase (You can't simply make gold out of wood)
Tip 2: Reasons for low costs
The only reason why the obdii diagnostic cables are made in China is because 90% of the materials (micro-controllers and ICs) come from there.That is, it's mainly about cost, most people would not be ready to pay 3-4 times the price just for the device being made in Europe or the US.
So, items are produced in high quantity and cost saving here
Anyway, good luck when but items in China.
