I use Bavarian Technic along with my other diagnostic tools to perform various functions. Bavarian Technic gives me Real Time Analysis where as my Dashsoft is only a coding tool
Hi Ace,

Ok thats great, what tool are you using for that? I had a feeling the DME rolling code set cannot be changed and only re-aligned once originally programmed at the factory (we have heared this before! you and others have proved otherwise! VIN on the TCU for example )

I went through this saga a few years ago when I done an engine conversion in my E46, ended up having to buy a new KEY, EWS and DME from a breakers, and align the two with carsoft!

Yeah the info read back is definitely for the PDC, software could be a bit flakey!

Do you know how the BT tool 'detects' modules? does it list all possible modules in the left pane? or does it read the vehicle order from the CAS to determine what modules are/should be fitted?

I see, fair enough.
