I don't know of a way to change the delay time via coding, but you can disable the display in the idrive settings without coding.

I turned it off the day I got the car and it hasn't been on since!

The only reason I've seen where FDL coding does not stick are:

1. Clicking on Code instead of Code FDL.
2. An error occured during FDL coding that went unnoticed.

Are you clicking the "Code" button instead of the "Code FDL" button?

"Code" codes the defaults based on the FA and ignores any FDL edits you made.

When you read the FSC via E-Sys, it's already in binary, so you don't need to b64dec it.

You should be able to feed the .fsc file to the generator directly.
