Some instructions I made for a PM to another member -



Just open the .trc (trace file) with notepad, and copy and paste it to the forum.
followed you process and was getting some error in NCSExpert only for ASK ECU but still was able to pull some data which i put in below location as it is too much

attached is the NCSExpert error and INPA results for ASK

erm its the coding index.

Your new ASK is running C05 (which i thought was only on facelift cars) and that is too new for your vehicle order so ncs expert doesn't recognize it.

You can change your build date to something newer (i dont know what personally, but ive read this is how you fix it) and it will open the file.

Hope that helps but i dont know how to change build date myself, maybe some else can help?

Mein Auto: 2002 745Li
I read with interest your comment concerning the tuner, and wondered if maybe you could give me some insight as to steps to take to make my tuner operative. I have a 2002 745LI with a bad tuner, and I found a replacement, no. 6526945203 made in 06-04. Installed the unit and the BMW dealer I used to program the system so it would work told me that I would have to get the VIN off of every unit in the optical system before it could be set up, naturally, the cost would have been prohibitive. I have a loop installed into the optical where the antenna is hooked up so all the rest of the system works. So, bottom line, just no radio to listen to. I have the analyzing discs and OBD BMW cable, so any information that you could give me whereby I might get this system working with this replacement tuner would be appreciated. Thanks! Semored

Since you can use the controls, and are getting sound, it should NOT be your ASK (the cd player in the dash).

It should be the tuner module (is this called a diversity unit? I'm not sure). I believe it is relatively common for there to be tuner problems and they are usually fixed by replacing the tuner.

If you are replacing the tuner, if the one you have bought is significantly newer / older than your old one, you may need to change a line of coding on your ASK to make it work - I can help with that.

Welcome to bimmerfest, and I'll let you off on the questions that may have been answered before as I can imagine a search would turn up a lot of different and irrelevant information.
