Mein Auto: X3, 2.0i, Manual, 10/06
Finally some X3 coding

Hi there

It took me longer than I anticipated but it is worh it at the end. The OBDII cable took longer to arrive, it took me longer to set the computer up and communicating with the car and it took me a long time to find out which ECU modules have which option and which ones I needed to change.

Anyway, I did finally manage yesterday to enablethe 3-blink indicator signal and also enable alarm beep when locking or unlocking the car ! The interesting thing here is that I don't have an alarm... as far as I know, since I bought the car used and nobody told me about an alarm! Is it possible that there is an alarm in there and I don't know... anything that I could look for that would suggest an alarm present or not??

In any case, since I'm at the beginning of learning the coding options in my car, does anyone have a list for the E83??? I haven't been able to find one out and have been trying to use one from an E46, which in most parts is similar, but there are differences.
