Lishi 2in1 tool picks+decodes Mercedes HU64 lock

Lishi 2 in 1 HU64 Mercedes user manual:

The Mercedes HU64 lock is a straightforward pick and decode process using the lishi 2in1 tool , door locks being far simpler to defeat than boot locks .

The lock is a 10 wafer lock with 5 cut heights referred to as heights 1 to 5 , 1 being the highest lift and 5 being the lowest lift , all 10 cuts are found in the door lock and in the boot lock.



You will notice that the tool has the 10 wafer positions , in 2 rows of 5 , an upper row and a lower row and follows a traditional 1 up and 1 down format . the grid to the right is the cut heights which will be obvious in the decode section of this guide.

There are no proven picking sequences with this lock at present , so its a matter of finding the binding wafer and picking it until bouncing tightly, until all wafers are picked and the lock opens .

The HU64 lock picks easiest in the locking direction and is a double lifter design of tool, and requires the lightest of tension for consistent success .

Excessive tension and overlifting is the most common cause of failure with this lock , the more tension that’s applied the higher the likelyhood of overlifting and the more likelyhood of damage to your tool , so very light tension is required for this tool.

Picking the HU64 lock

Fully insert the Lishi tool into the lock , apply a light tension and move one of the lifters to the first wafer , gently lift the wafer half a mm , if it moves then leave it alone and move on , try the next , any movement in the wafer at all , then leave it alone. When you find a binding wafer, lift until it has free movement again, a tight bounce i refer to as slapping. Every time you find a binding wafer , pick it until it slaps . once all binding wafers are set , the lock will open.

It is not unusual for a set wafer to drop out during the pick process , so expect to find a previously set wafer to bind again even after picking already .

A picture guide of the picking process is below.

Insert the tool fully and apply a light tension


Position 1 is the first to bind and pick


Position 3 is the next to bind and pick


Position 5 is the next to bind and pick


Position 9 is the next to bind and pick


Position 4 is the next to bind and pick


Position 6 is the next to bind and pick


Position 8 is the next to bind and pick


Lock opens


With a light tension and minimal effort, following a basic picking process this lock picks generally in a few minutes, remember a light tension is crucial for continued success.

Decoding the HU64 Lock using the lishi 2 in locksmith tool

As the tool is of the double lifter design , this means that we decode in the same direction as we picked the wafer , so we use the same lifting arm to decode and decode in the same direction as picked.

In order to decode the HU64 lock , the lock must be held in the picked position , so after picking , maintain tension , holding the lock in the picked position , then lift the arm along each numbered line in turn until it comes to a stop, when it stops look along the height line to see the cut height required.

Follow the decode process below.

Position 1 reads as a No 3 cut


Position 2 reads as a No 2 cut


Position 3 reads as a cut No 3


Position 4 reads as No 2 cut


Position 5 reads as a No 2 cut


Position 6 reads as a No 3 cut


Position 7 reads as a No 5 cut


Position 8 reads as a No 5 cut


Position 9 reads as a No 2 cut


Position 10 reads as a No 5 cut


So the key for this lock read from bow to tip as 3232235525

Job’s done with a Lishi 2 in 1 HU64!


How to use Xhorse wireless remotes with VVDI Key Tool

This is the instruction for the wireless/wired remotes from Xhorse.

This remote is a Xhorse 3-button remote...there is no 'Panic' button.

3-button wireless/wired remotes from Xhorse:

How to use Xhorse wireless remotes with VVDI Key Tool:

Using the VVDI Key Tool, select Product Remote and select the remote you would like to generate.

Hold remote to ariel portion of tool during generation. Install proper blade for your application

Program remove to vehicle as you would an OEM remote

Note, the WIRELESS remote head key has the chip already integrated into the electronics board. No disassembly is necessary and no chip installation is necessary, unlike wired models.

How to use Xhorse wired remotes with VVDI Key Tool:

Open remote and remove battery

Connect data cable to white connector on remote PCB board and plug into VVDI Key Tool

Using the VVDI Key Tool, select Product Remote and select the remote you would like to generate

Disconnect cable, reinsert battery, and reassemble remote. Install proper chip and blade for your application.

Program remove to vehicle as you would an OEM remote

Cummins Insite works for INLINE 6 and INLINE 5

Cummins INSITE v7.5 and new versions are compatible with the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5

Note that INSITE versions earlier than this are not fully RP1210B compliant and may not work with these adapters. See the chart below for an example of the basic connections needed to hook-up to the vehicle data link

You should be at Insite version 7.6.2 to get the best performance out of Insite. Inline 6 just has new features. Here are the changes INLINE 6 Data Link Adapter. This new adapter is now the only genuine or HQ clone Cummins product on the market and is the only adapter available that Cummins certifies to be 100% compatible with all features of the latest Cummins ECMs and software applications. The INLINE 6 can communicate with your PC through a 9-pin serial connector. The INLINE 6 also can communicate with your PC over a Universal Serial Bus (USB) through a 4-pin standard connector. The INLINE 6 adapter connects to vehicle power, the SAE J1708/J1587 data link, and two CAN/J1939 data links via a 25-pin serial connector. With full compliance to the Technology and Maintenance Council's RP1210 standard, the INLINE 6 will work with the latest Cummins INSITE, PowerSpec, and Calterm III software applications. It will also work with any other software applications that are fully compliant with the RP1210 standard (note that while some non-Cummins applications fully support RP1210, others do not, so you should test each application in question with the INLINE 6 adapter to make that determination

That is fine, working on 2010 and older trucks. The inline 5 will work on all applications as long as Insite version is up to date 7.5 or higher is required. I would go with the Inline 6 because Cummins is in the process of testing an Inline 8 adapter. You will find on some older engines Inline 5 and 6 is too fast and you must drop down to a Inline 4 or below. But the Inline 5 will work for your needs.
