Partial success on my first programming attempt! Cable finally came from Hong Kong (was stuck in US Customs for over a week) but it appears to be well-made, works just fine, and only cost $29.

Since I'm taking the car to the dealership this week for its annual maintenance and possibly some software updates (hesitation issue, slight pull to right, etc.) I didn't want to go nuts today given that I've read that software updates by the dealer will wipe out my altered settings. So I'll do more next weekend, after I get the car back.

What I did do successfully was program it in module CAS so the key fob will allow me to close the windows & moon roof -- functionality, I might add, that my 2007 328xi had standard. Interestingly, it doesn't seem to fold my mirrors, though. Now I did not notice that I should have also changed the related item in the FRM module, so maybe that's why the mirrors didn't fold …... just a guess .. and something I can honestly live without, anyway. I rarely fold them in except when parked long term at the airport, anyway. I also changed the TPMS settings in the HU_CIC module, though it did not add tire pressure and temperature to my display. Big disappointment, as that was the one change I really wanted ... and I'm pretty sure I have the TPMS since I have metal valve stems, not rubber. Oh well, maybe someone can figure that out since the "cheat sheet" says that change works for some people but obviously not all. Darn. Finally, I also changed the Speed Limit Info settings in HU_CIC but didn't change the related setting in KOMBI, so that's not working yet (and I have the rear-view mirror cam, as I have Lane Departure and Automatic High Beams) but should be when I fix that.

Two questions from today's experience, though. I ran the batch file that is posted elsewhere on this site to back up my CAF files after reading them in E-sys. After I was done making my changes above, I went to look for the original files, and though I found a folder My_CAF_Files with a sub-folder date & time-stamped properly, that folder was empty. What might have gone wrong? I'm not too upset that I don't now have an original unaltered set of files, but I'd like to make sure it works going forward. Second question is that I didn't even see the HKFM module so I could code the inside button and key fob to close the trunk when pressed. Is that because I only had the v45.1 psdzdata files to work with? Should that module appear if I upgrade to the v46.6 files I see on here now?

Anyway,. I wanted to share my experience today so that other newbies might not feel so intimidated by the process of programming the car. It's really not too bad if you follow the step-by-step instructions given in the Getting Started document. Really!

CAF files will be copied to a date time stamped folder if:
1. E-Sys is installed at the default location else you need to edit the batch file
2. After making the changes to cafd files, they are saved.

Hi I'm new here. Do not speak English so I have to work with Google translator and I hope it works.
I encode for some time and have the V46.6 work load but not, or are too old.
Does anyone have a link for 47.4?
Would be very grateful.

Is there a Esys the German experts speaking?
Would have access to a 750iL F02 and F10 M5 both have no more VMAX limit. NOT made ***8203;***8203;by Dynan.
Is it interesting?

Fixed, copied files per directions. Had to create "e-sysest" folder on "C" drive as it did not exist. Will try on vehicle soon.

If you are able to read at least few cafd files, it's then just psdz data set issue. Change to 46.3 or to next higher version.

Please read the manual installation steps and see if you have followed correctly. Also have you assigned the key to E-Sys?

Coding CAFD files:
9.Select the edited CAFD file on SVT box and Click on "Code FDL" in coding box on right.

Are you getting an E-Sys Error? If so, what exactly is the error?

Is your problem just with HU_CIC? Are you able to FDL Code other ECU's and save the coding?

After I make changes and "code FDL", I read the file again and it does not show my changes it shows the previous values, is this normal? Does it take time to update the values also?

It's immediate as soon as the FDL Coding is complete. You are hitting the Save Icon after making your changes and before FDL Coding? After you FDL Code, does it show that it was successfully processed in the Pop-Up Window?

yes, save changes, back green arrow, select module, code fdl , goes through no errors, but the change is not reflected when I read the module from the car.

What E-Sys version are you using?

Is this happening on every FDL Code you make, in multiple ECU's, or have you tried just one ECU, one FDL Code?

This is mainly happening on the CAS Module 3003 FH MASTER, trying to code the fold in mirrors, this is on a 09, 750 I beleive it is F002 chasis, using the F10 cheat sheet.
