Need Coding HELP SCREWED UP

I had everything done and decided to make one last change. I wanted to change the close delay between the windows up and sunroof when using the fob. Somewhere along the line I did something wrong. When I hit the lock button the windows start to go up but the alarm goes off. Anybody have any ideas? I can drive it. I just cannot lock my doors.

or - How do I reset the codes from a previous backup. I did a backup before the start of each new coding session. They are .xml files.

Before you go changing any coding around, plug your PC back into it and re-establish the connection. Then make sure you hit the disconnect button in E-Sys before you unplug the cable.

Usually this is caused by the Ethernet still seeing activity/open comm port caused by the computer being still plugged in or the connection not being properly terminated.

Sir, if you are ever in Eloy, AZ I will buy you dinner. You can see the current temp in my garage. Add 30 degrees for nerves and that would cover it. Your suggestion worked. Thank you.

No problems man, glad it was an easy fix. And I know the feeling, after I coded my car successfully I began coding my wife's car. When I was done I brought her out to show off her new features, and couldn't make the alarm stop going off...the things we learn!

E-Sys is to my knowledge the only program capable of changing coding flags in the i3 models(or any F/I/G chassis) currently.
