Getting Hi-Scan Pro Software for Hyundai and Kia

These instructions no longer work!

In a very unfortunate decision, Hyundai/Kia as the only major car manufacturer publishing technical information for free has decided to follow the model of other vendors and charge for access:

For many years, Kia Motors America has provided no cost access to www.KiaTechInfo.com as a complimentary service to its customers, although most other competitors charge for access to their service support websites. Because Kia vehicles have advanced technology requiring specialized training, tools and equipment, the information contained in this website is largely tailored towards the professional technician and effective October 17, 2014, the site has been changed to a subscription-based, pay per use site.

The information presented here is kept for reference only.

Hi-Scan Pro software for American-market Hyundai and Kia vehicles up to about model year 2007 can be downloaded free of charge from the manufacturer’s service web sites, which only require free registration.

For Hyundai vehicles:

  • Go to Hyundai Motor America Service Information and register. (Note that the website is rather broken, and signup only works using Internet Explorer.)
  • Once you have received your credentials, log in and go to “Diagnostic Tools”/”Software Updates”.
  • Download the file under “System (SOL) Card” (S-System 2009-07-2007.exe) and copy it to the “roms” directory of your CASCADE installation. The file will automatically be unpacked when loaded by CASCADE.
Alternatively, you can download the file directly: https://www.hyundaitechinfo.com/pds/BOARD_CUSTOM/S-System%2009-07-2007.exe

For Kia vehicles:

  • Go to Kia Global Information System (KGIS) and register. (Note that the website is rather broken, and signup only works using Internet Explorer.)
  • Once you have received your credentials, log in and go to “Software Downloads”, then “Downloads for Hi-Scan Pro”.
  • Download the file under “Standard Software Card” (KP640_20061214.exe).
  • Run the EXE file you have just downloaded to install the software on your computer. Ignore the “Important Instructions” and just press “Continue”.
  • Close the console window that opens after installation.
  • Browse to C:\KP640_2 and copy the file “KP640_USA.DAT” to the “roms” directory of your CASCADE installation. The file will automatically be unpacked when loaded by CASCADE.
