Do u have obd to usb cable? I can do it remotely

CCCP,
I bought the software and cables..installed the software and thought I was ready to take a shot at coding.... I stopped when this didn't seem right... Although the plug looked like it may fit, what am I missing? The plug doesn't look like it's the right one... or is it?

Looks like the one I have. Just looked weird when you look at the picture that I took of the port on the car.

The photo of the port on your car, thats a "CAP or PLUG", you need to remove it, (Pull it out) then you will see the port.

I did the following coding tonight..after the auto lock feature..

CAS
VER_AUT_X_MIN_SENDER_1 - Auto lock after 2min if door not open
KOMFORTSCHLIESSUNG_FB - Comfort closing with remote - windows, sunroof, or convertible

HKL
FUNKTION_TOEHKI - Close trunk with switch on dash
KOMFORT_SCHLIESSEN_HKL - Close truck with fob by holding the lock button (5-8secs)

WIM
STANDRUECKSCHALTUNG - Wipers return to interval when car is stopped

I'm looking for help with the following, help appreciated

1. Welcome lights - when I hit the unlock button on the fob the park light and angel eyes illuminate for a couple if minutes.
2. Engine Oil level - OELSTAND - which module would this be located?
3. Disable Legal Disclaimer - I found a lot of posts regssrding this... but I couldn't find the one place (module) to edit

Also, for the Sunroof module (SHD) - I got an error, missing file... blah blah - I should have taken a screenshot... I'll run it again another day and get the error.

Yep, afraid so, if you have a pre-facelift welcome lights are not codeable.

I have replaced my original light module with an LM2 from a facelift LCI E60, I now have welcome lights and activated lights on via key fob.

You can pick an LM2 up for around 90-150 here in the UK.

Legal disclaimer coding is in the MMI, oil level is also in the MMI, although with a pre-facelift the oil level data is not broadcast on the K-CAN so it will continually say 'updating' there is a way around it but its not simple coding!

Hi, can you post the contents of the error file in the NCS directory? That usually gives more info. I don't know the exact code to remove the legal disclaimer, I'm in the UK and we don't have that, a lot of the warning messages in the kombi for seat belts, key in ignition aren't used in the UK either.

Stuartjohn24, any negative that you can see of going to a LM2 on the E65/E66?
How did you determine what parameters to use for each keyword? NCSDummy doesn't show any E65 settings...

There are no negative side affects, the LM2 was used in the later E65/66's anyway.

If your car was produced before march 2003 then a minor wire change is needed, it's just swapping a pin in the connector to the light module.

Keyword parameters? Are you referring to the coding values? That's correct the LM2 does not have any coding values for chassis type, when I first fitted it the lights didn't work properly because it still thought it was in an E60!

I re-flashed the LM2 using winKFP (I'm not sure this was actually necessary, at the time I thought there must be chassis specific software installed as there were no coding parameters) this was successful and allowed me to ensure the VIN number had taken.

You then need to copy the vehicle order from the CAS and write it to the new light module, then code the light module using the expert profile, this automatically configures the light module based on your vehicle order, like if you have xenons etc....

Do not use the cowboy method of deleting the contents of a .MAN file and writing it using a coding manipulation profile, your asking for trouble. There is a correct method for doing automatic self-coding, there are loads of PWM values for the LED brightness that are coded automatically too.

You then read the trace file and edit it a you wish once you have it all working and activate the welcome lights, home lights etc.... And remove the bulb checks so you can install LED indicators etc....

Very worth while upgrade in my opinion!

No worries! Once you have it coded and working you can just play around with the settings.

Interestingly NCS expects to see an LMA when you go to read/code it, but then automatically changes to the LM2, it does not do this for the MMI, if you fit a facelift one for example. So you don't have to dummy change your production year in NCS to code it.

Download 2.1
its a rar. file
i had to download winrar(download.com its free) for it to install.
This is the one with MMi on it.

Like i said i coded mine this weekend. I added tv aux and dvd in motion. All on the front MMI.


No one would tell me that it comes with 2.0 but you ll need 2.1 to do the coding ACEFX does.
Once i figure that part out and downloaded the winrar. I hooked it to the car and everything registered just fine.
You can do its actually pretty easy.
I ll add some pics a lil later

Now i want to see if there is anyway to find the bluetooth pk number with dashsoft.

So you can have RES and not have the DVD changer? So basically the RES is a single DVD player but some people purchase the DVD changer in the rear as an added option? Am I correct. I am bit confused. If u have RES then you have to have the screen between the seats?? Right. There is one guy who claimed he got VIM to work on his 2002 -E65 using the navigation player in which he put his DVD in and it worked. I find that hard to believe though.

If u have screen between seats u must have 6 dvd disc charger in the trunk. And other way around. Plus u have an idrive knob in ur armrest in the rear.

As quoted
"i dont have a rear entertainment unit. i dont even have a cd changer! i do have dvd navigation though. the trick is to insert the coding blocks in the correct order. read the mmigt and look for the tv video function that you just inserted and disable that. i had problems reading the mmigt after inserting the code blocks cz i was putting them in the wrong place. a member here helped me out with that and it worked right away. i just disabled the tv-abschtung function (set it to nicht_activ) and ur done. i can provide u with a video if you want."

Little does he realize that most of all navigation player says DVD on it doesn't mean it can play a movie dvd

Interesting. Like i said i dont know much about it so i dont want to say anything to support the idea or go against it. So that means he cant have navigation anymore?
What navi it is in his car 02 or 03? I really want to see that video where it works. I dont really care much i have RES so my VIM works perfect. Just out of curiosity. I know that u can integrate ur iphone to mmi and it will play movies/music etc.

There was no such mention of integration. He said he he did what I normally coded for a car with RES and I got VIM to work. This Person is stating that he got his to work doing the same codin I did and he stuck a DVD movie into nav player and it worked. I did this to a members car First 745LI and it couldn't read the movie DVD in the nav player. It just doesn't work but this guy is saying otherwise which I also want to see a video of this. The guy had no cd changer no RES yet he can play a DVD movie on his navi screen!! Cmon

Bluetooth pass key? Tool32 will allow you to read the pass key, NCS is for coding.

I doubt dashsoft will allow you to read the pass key. It really depends on what memory locations it reads.

You can edit the Bluetooth ID so you can use your name or something instead of the standard VIN etc... And what emergency number the car calls in an accident. This is all done in Tool32.

It's much easier just to pull the boot trim and read the BT PK off the TCU! You would have it by now!

???

Where did he say he put a DVD in the NAV drive?

What he was explaining was the process to enable VIM using the method shown on BMWcoders.

You DO NOT need rear entertainment or DVD multichanger in the boot for VIM to work!

I have coded this to my pre facelift and facelift MMI's I have the hybrid video module only and no DVD or RES.

You must have made a mistake with the coding or editing of the files.

All he comfirmed was that he does not have a DVD changer or CD changer but he does have a DVD navigation system.

He didn't say he put a DVD in the NAV drive, (unless I missed it!) he just said he has coded video in motion, which means he must have a video/TV module.

Which is the same as me, I have a digital video module which is now enabled to work while I'm driving. I don't have a DVD changer. (But I do have a DVD NAV! Lol)

Well there might be some confusion then as I don't know the location of the person who posted. Correct there needs to be a source to play the DVD and he stated he used the navi player And it worked. I tried on two cars with no RES and put DVD into navi player And nothing. In fAct it wouldn't even read it as a readable source. US models don't have DVD navi in which it can read and play DVD movies. Maybe there needs to be module installed, I don't know. Need to find out where he lives to confirm its a Euro spec vehicle


If it was my coding that was the problem, I wouldn't have been Able to code 2 cars that had RES and allow video to show in the front Navi screen, so that confirms my files are correct

I think you have just misunderstood what he was saying, there is no way on earth that the NAV drive will play a DVD video disc, that's not what it's intended for.

I bet he has just the video module like myself.

This is mine, fitted it yesterday!

Have you been trying to code a car with no DVD or video module to play DVDs from the NAV drive?

All this coding does is removes the warning message on the MMI when you engage drive or reverse.

Basically saves you the hassle of installing that cheap Chinese crap to the MMI CAN bus interface to alter the CAN messages. And is free of course!

He said he has DVD navigation, but never said he put a disc in and played it. I think that was just extraneous information.

And, no, there is no TV option in the USA. The digital broadcast signal is different and no module is available to support it in a car.

That's right, I didn't realise the US spec models didn't have TV, I recall someone saying you could get analogue at some point? We have loads of analogue tuners over here in the UK, they are 100% useless now as the transmitters have been switched off.

Hence why I got the hybrid module, they are scarce and expensive!

How does the DVD video interface connect to the MMI? I'm sure it has to route through the video module?

With no rear entertainment it's a CVBS signal to the video module, then switched to the NAV, with rear entertainment it's CVBS to the video module then RGB to the MMI, also NAV now outputs CVBS signal to video module instead of RGB to MMI.

Anyway, glad we got that cleared up!

Based on my research, 2002 - 2005 North American spec E65/E66 with RES were built with an analog TV tuner built into the video module. Hence the owners manuals list TV as a source for the rear seat passengers. For 2006 - 2008 the TV tuner was removed and RES cars were built with a video switch.
I do not have RES, but I retrofitted a Euro analog TV tuner / video module and can watch video in motion... though it's mostly static as analog signals are rare in NA.
Later I added the DVD changer and now video in motion has more purpose.

I'm sure, it's the original MMI. Let me look thru my notes later. There was another member that had helped with this as well.

Okay, I refreshed my memory this morning and think I might know what's going on.

In facelift models, you can modify the TOUT_LEGALDISCLAIMER code, but you have to change the values for wert_01 or wert_02. Wert_01 is 00, which means the disclaimer is displayed until you click the button. Wert_02 is 64, which is, i think, 10 seconds (hex 64 = decimal 100, value is in 10th of second). You have to change one value (or add a new wert_03) to 01, which will display the disclaimer for .1 seconds at startup.

For all models, I believe, you can change the FAHRZEUGTYP_MMI from us_ll to ece_ll. This makes the MMI think it's in Europe where the disclaimer is not displayed at all. However, I'm told that this will cause the MPG display to be inaccurate (due to a difference in the gallon measurement) and, if you have a DVD player, you won't be able to play NTSC DVD's. There are probably some other changes, too.

Can you check these two codes to see how your car is configured?
