Exclamation Check engine light after coding

Hi,

I recently did some coding on my car and when I code FEM_BODY I am seeing a check engine light. Has this happened to anyone else ?
How do I remove it. My car is still under warranty but I dont want to take it to dealership since it might appear on my car history.
If I reset the check engine, will it sill appear on some logs ? Can BMW find out I did this ?
What are the risks wrt warranty and all these things appearing in car history.

Any suggestions, comments welcome .

It happens often. Clear it and forget about it.

Click "External Applications" in the left menu.
Click "External Application"
Double-click "Transmitter"
Scroll to the bottom and double-click "... Clear all DTCs ..."

Thanks ShawnSheridan

Thanks ShawnSheridan

You are awesome man... So much information and so much help without expecting anything ($) in return... Amazing. Hats off to you !!!

With your help & directions, and a $3 connector from ebay, I was able to add EBT to my 2014 328d and also added some cool features using coding. Was really scared when I saw check engine light, but you had a solution for that as well. Amazing!

this isn't so old so i'll bump it up again. same thing here, have the CEL light after coding/flashing. ISTA shows nothing (just a headlight module mismatch after flashing FEM_BODY, but that won't cause CEL), tried to reset all DTC using transmitter and clearing fault memory using ISTA but the light still stays.

any ideas?

Try clearing with Tool32:

Launch C:\EDIABAS\Bin\TOOL32.EXE
Hit F3
Load C:\EDIABAS\Ecu\F01.PRG
In the "Select Job: F01" window, select FS_LOESCHEN_FUNKTIONAL
Hit F5
"Results" window should show "JOB_STATUS = OKAY"

Note: fs_lesen_funktional only read fault codes, FS_LOESCHEN_FUNKTIONAL will delete it.

Yea sorry forgot to mention I tried that as well.

Nothing seems to work. I'm not 100% sure it's related to my coding but it is coincidental.

I had the same thing happen to me after flashing the entire car. It went away after driving some miles (10+ miles)

This just happened to me. Double clicking clear all DTC doesn't seem to do anything. Am I doing something wrong?

Drove for a bit either and it still didn't go away. Any suggestions?

Getting EDIASBAS Working

I was able to download and extract the .RAR and have EDIASBAS copied to C:\.

After running TOOL32.EXE, I hit F3 and try to load F01.prg, but I can't get it to load. The cursor just spins. Are there installation instructions? Maybe I missed something.

Is Firewall and Antivirus disabled?

Got The Tool32 to run

I ran tool32 as Administrator and was able to get the tool to work. The job status showed as "ok" but the drivetrain malfunction error will not go away. Any other suggestions?

DME2 [13] is for engines with 2 DME's - does DME 1 [12} also show up correctly programmed and coded

Here are the two DME2 [12] doesn't have a CAFD. DME2 [13] has a CAFD called CAFD_00000B0A_000_040_000.

I don't have DME1, I have DME2 [12], but am not able to code it.

I have a 2015 550i xDrive.
