So, all you are doing is coding KOMFORTSCHLIESSUNG FB and FA, changing it them from nicht_aktiv to aktiv, and after you FDL Code and read the ECU, it reverts back to nicht_aktiv? You aren't changing any Werte Values?

OK, I think I found the problem.
The Cheat Sheet says to change the parameter form nicht_aktiv/00 to aktiv/01, aparently after selecting aktiv the werte reverts to 00, I was changing it to 01, the parameter would remain aktiv, but at the time of saving the werte 01 would revert the parameter to nicht_aktiv (not visible until I reopen the module), I just changed the parameter, left the value alone and it worked. The cheat sheet confused me.

thanks for your guidance.

Coding on older models & questions

Question -- I'm brand new to these forums and coding. Just bought a 2012 E93... And was interested in Coding (i.e. Automatic Hardtop convertible movements via keyless comfort keyfob, etc)

I noticed the majority of this forum was dedicated to FXX models.

A) Could anyone point me in the direction of some E9X coding manuals, background info, etc.

B) Also, I know that BMW is coming out with a revamped iDrive/ConnectedDrive in the next year or two... What are my options to make this part of my current car (i.e. Software Update from BMW, BMW retrofit, Coding, etc)

Many apologies-- Really new to this BMW iDrive world-- had an old 2004 325xi that really required no modding... but looking forward to playing catch-up!

Thanks!

You are correct. Most of what is here is Fxx Chassis and E-Sys related, although some of the users here came from Exx chassis or still have an Exx chassis that they code with NCS Expert, INPA, Tool32, etc., and flash with WinKFP.

Your best bet though is to go here, and read this thread, maybe not all 193 pages, but at least the 1st post. This should get you going in the right direction.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=451145

The new iDrive is here now, as in 2013 F10's. Your 2012 E93 surely will be able to be retrofitted with the new new CIC Head Unit (HU_NBT), but it will be more complicated and more expensive than what it was to retrofit the previous CIC Head Unit (HU_CIC) into a factory CCC Head Unit vehicle. The new HU_NBT has Combox (TCU & MULF) built into it, so the Unit Cost will be much more, plus the hardware installation will be much more than just swapping the Head Unit as all the Combox wiring in the trunk will need to be relocated to connections on the CIC. On top of that, the FSC Codes in your current CIC will not work with the new CIC. So, you will still need to either buy and import and activate all your FSC Codes into the new Head Unit for Navigation, Voice Recognition, Maps, Sat Radio, BMW Apps, etc., or buy a Hardware Activation Module (CAN Filter) for Navigation and Voice Recognition, and FSC Codes for the others. This by itself will be very expensive. So, is it doable? Sure, if you have a lot of money to throw at it.

So essentially, in addition to actually buying the mod and having it done -- I would have to pay BMW for *new* access to the same services I currently have just with a newest Combox/CIC? Or I could buy this CAN Filter (which may fake them for me, etc?) I need a glossary of terms ha.

Learning slowly.... May just start with modding my ComfortAccess KeyFOB to open/close roof and mirrors automatically ....

Yes. The FSC Codes are VIN Specific. If you program your actual VIN into any new Head Unit, as would be the OEM way, the FSC Codes inside the donor CIC would not be any good, as they have the old donor VIN, so you would have to replace them. Your original ones from your old CIC can't be used in the new CIC either, so you would need all new FSC Codes. There some sellers though that sell a hardware activation module (aka, emulator or CAN Filter) that allows you to keep the donor VIN in the CIC and the FSC Codes, as it fools the CIC into thinking the VIN is the same as the car VIN. This though I believe only works on for the Navigation and Voice Recognition functions, so I am not sure about the FSC Codes for other functions such as Map, Sat Radio, BMW Apps, etc., and how they are made to work.

You can recode and flash update the firmware on any ECU with E-Sys and the PSdZdata. For reading codes though, you need ISTA/D.

So yes then because im having the hardest time getting my abs flashed due to they are only open m-f close early and all the shops are far away from my location it almost imposible asking a friend who works also and they want to keepn the car the whole day. If I can do this with the suppied information posted I might go this route

Well, I am working with another User on an E-Sys ECU Flashing Guide, which is very close to complete, so there will be an instruction for this soon.

Your 528i is an F10 correct?

First though, I would just try and VO Code ABS, but I am not sure which ECU specifically as there is no ABS Module by itself. Probably ACSM I guess, or CAS.

Um..wait. 2000, as in 12 years old? E-Sys only works on Fxx Chassis, so for 5 Series that would only be F10's, from Model Year's 2011 forward in the U.S.

If you do not have an F10, you need NCS Expert for Coding and WinKFP for flashing, but unfortunately, I can not help you with that. I don't deal with the older Exx Chassis.

Ok. Good luck. Just so you know, you have an E39 (19952003 5 Series) Chassis, so Google "BMW E39 Coding", and besides NCS Expert, if you end up needing to flash any firmware, you will also need WinKFP.

Also, you will need the proper Interface (cable) for an E39. I'm not sure what that is though.
