I think that might be the cause. I originally bought a TCU with part number 9224422, took quite a while and couldn't get it to work, checked and found out that was for E70, so I searched for another one based on the info from RealOEM, and bought one with part number 9149615, and it worked straight away. If you can find another for reasonable price, I would say go for it.

Hello

does the '06 TCUM module work on '02 E65?

I retrofitted one, added option $633, then deleted $630, i can see the TCUM in the list of modules, and I can code it, the problem is when I code MMIGT it doesn't show the bluetooth menu, it shows the old menu for $630 option menu..

Maybe the MMI it's too old and doesn't have a bluetooth menu for TCUM ?

What can I do?

You have to change MMI if your car is before 03.2003 for newer

I changed MMI with new one 06.2003 , I have bluetooth option in Settings, but when I try to click on it, it doesn't do nothing, doesn't work.. I changed also the year from VO to 0904 and coded MMIGT but bluetooth button in settings doesn't do nothing when I press on it.


what is wrong ?

BLUETOOTH TCU modul must be named TCU 1.5 MOST ECE NO EVEREST
You need change TCU if you have other one

Mein Auto: E65 750i
Hey guys,

the informations in this thread were very helpful to me! After reading all of the posts several times i did the retrofit and succeeded!!
I just wanna tell you guys all of the steps i was going through, including some new coding-settings i discovered to deactivate the SOS-System-Failure-Message, maybe it helps someone...

So my car is a facelift e65 750i with the very early production date of February 2005. It also had the option $638 with the bluetooth-telephone in the cradle.
The TCU 1.5 i purchased has the BMW number: 84109149615 with the production date 26.03.2007. this tcu was previously installed in a bmw e60. My MMI-Firmware was luckily already up-to-date.
So here we start with the steps i did:

Mechanical Replacement

1. Because i have a facelift e65 i just replaced the old tcu with the new one. I had to cut the edges of the plug so it could fit in the new tcu (see Post #554 - very good summary of necessary steps!!). I also had to cut a notch into the mounting-plate, to give more space to the antenna connector. I did not disconnect the cradle in the center console! So this was the easy part.

Software Modifications

2. At first i changed with ToolSet32 the VIN of the module with the command "c_fg_schreiben" (mentioned often in previous posts). I did not change any production date.

3. By using NCSExpert i replaced my VO $638 with the VO $633 and coded it into the ECUs CAS and LMA by using the job "FA_WRITE".

3. After that i coded the MMI with NCSExpert with the following options (mentioned often in previous posts, for example #297, i'm sorry if i don't quote correctly )
TEL_BLUETOOTH
AKTIV
BLUETOOTH_HANDY
AKTIV
ECE_TELEFON
aktiv
HARDKEY_ASK
aktiv

4. Then i coded the new TCU-module (TCU15MOS.C13) with NCSExpert and changed the following options:
BORDNETZ
e65_bordnetz
BACKUP_ANTENNA
nicht_aktiv
BACKUP_LOUDSPEAKER
nicht_aktiv

5. After that i could successful pair my iphone 4s and had full bluetooth functionality. BUT i still had the SOS-System-Failure - Message!! The source of the failure-message was located in the SIM-ECU (NCSExpert)
So i read with NCSExpert the trace-file the SIM-ECU and found some interesting options to deactivate. I set the following options:
UBERWACH_TELEFON
nicht_aktiv
VERBAU_TELEFON
nicht_verbaut


After coding and restart of the car the SOS-Failure-Message was gone!! Maybe this information helps someone out there

Thank you again for the very useful information!!
