Byte 0, the first hex value in line 3002, if you tell me what value you have there now I will tell you what the value needs to be to activate the TV function

I see, well the byte of data that holds the TV function is one of 6 other options, so you need to enter the correct value to ensure you dont disable your CDC, DVD or change your ASK type etc...

If you tell me which of the following options you have I will tell you what should be at position 0 and what you need to change it to?

ASK type: CD, Minidisc or Tape
AM/FM Tuner?
CD Changer?
DVD Changer?
Logic 7?
Dual Climate Controls?

Hi,

You should have 0x7B at position 0, you need to change it to 0x7F

Im not sure, there may be another parameter to change, there is an option to disable video in the front, I can dig that one out for you if you wish?

If yours is working then do we all need to change out the oil level sensor or something to a post facelift e65 e66?

Thanks,

I enabled the oil level display in my C04 MMI, but I too only get the perpetual updating message as seen in the attachment. If anyone knows what else needs to be updated, please post accordingly.

I had someone check things for me and it looks like my DVD Nav Player in the trunk is the older model. So I need to change it out for a newer model to achieve those upgrades. I haven't decided if it's worth the extra dollars... Maybe someone else has a better answer...
My Logic 7 amp just went out, so that's a priority now.
Correct, you need the NAVI03 (from 03/05) navigation computer to shows clouds and have "ABC" moved to the top of the New Destination menu. The navigation computer outputs it's own graphics for the entire Navigation section of I-drive.

================================================== ===

I have also noticed the C04 MMI doesn't allow me to select "intensities" within the Climate Control section of I-drive. I cannot change it from "Low". As a result the fan speeds are too low for my preference. Anyone else notice this with their pre-facelift HVAC unit and a facelift MMI? See attachment.

Hi,

The oil level is a tricky one, I am sworn to secrecy! I notice it has been disclosed on a similar thread. It's far beyond a simple coding change, I'm pretty experienced with this stuff and I won't even attempt it!

I too have a similar issue with the IHKA, although I did see it pop up with 'medium' yesterday while fiddling! It does do some strange things, the AC comes on whenever I press auto, that's a coding change so will look into it later.

Stuart

I used the SEARCH function and combed through the first 100 hits for "oil level", but didn't find it... apparently I need to look harder.

=========================
As for the IHKA I noticed C05 has a couple additonal Functions, one being:
0D9E AUTO_TOGGLE
000B nicht_aktiv
0007 aktiv

NCS lists the following in the history file (E65AEDOC.000):
IHKA_E65.C05 E65SGET E65SGVT E65CVT E1E65S 03/05 -IHKA_E65.C05 neu hinzu

My guess is you need a coding index 05 from a MY2006+ with Auto Toggle enabled for the "intensity" button in i-drive to work. I looked at updating the software in my C04 IHKA. Despite the history file (IHKH65.HIS) showing my IHKA ZUSB 6953186 being upgradable to 6955071, WinKFP wouldn't let me do the update. I have more to learn about WinKFP and will report back if I ever get my IHKA upgraded to C05...

Here you go Ayman


This is the same link i used
http://www.ecutool.com/BMW-DASH-Inte...J8zsWgQPCCBA#6

Click on software,
Download 2.1
its a rar. file
i had to download winrar(download.com its free) for it to install.
This is the one with MMi on it.

Like i said i coded mine this weekend. I added tv aux and dvd in motion. All on the front MMI.


No one would tell me that it comes with 2.0 but you ll need 2.1 to do the coding ACEFX does.
Once i figure that part out and downloaded the winrar. I hooked it to the car and everything registered just fine.
You can do its actually pretty easy.
I ll add some pics a lil later

Now i want to see if there is anyway to find the bluetooth pk number with dashsoft.
