By the way do you know where I can find the meaning of these figures

SA number:1CA, 205, 224, 249, 255, 2VB, 350, 354, 399. 430, 438, 441, 459, 470, 493, 494, 520, 521, 522, 534, 540, 550, 5GA, 639, 645, 662, 677, 692, 704, 785, 823, 845, 853, 876, 838, 548, 896, 302 ($302)

Thank you all for your help
I got the software ( NCSExpert, INPA, DIS and SSS) and coded the alarm myself with NCSExpert + an OBDII cable .... after an incredible learning curve.

the FA number/VO is the code for all the options on your car that came from the factory. "$302" is the alarm code that needed to be added to the FA/VO in the AKMB and ALSZ ECUs.

after adding $302 and processing the car, the DWS options show up in the list of configurable options.

i beat the dealer! cost of my alarm... $100 ... bonus: i can now change whatever i want, whenever i want... no dealer scumbags needed. i can reset airbag lights and more... my car!

on the 5er it's standard, but I paid extra for the lo-jack. cheap insurance.
HA! cocky lunacy
I like my 2003 Z4 2.5i... but love my smelly old rusty 2002 Wrangler SE, 2012 Dyna Wide Glide 111ci and evil 2007 HD Sportster 883/1200 Stage IV !
