F10 - Retrofit DEC switch for Normal/Sport/Sport+ modes

I really wanted to enable the sports control in my non-sport 520d F10 (4.2011).

Parts needed:

1x 61319202936 DEC switch with Normal/Sport label
2x 61130005197 Wire with bushing contact DEC switch side
2x 61131383776 bushing contact ICM side

The install is quiet easy, albeit one step which was a bit*h to do (see 8 below)

Dis-assembly steps:
1. Pry out rear seat ventilation cover, pull top 1st.
2. Pry out phone compartment lock cover.
3. Remove the revealed torx screw.
4. Pry out the middle console, starting from the rear and lift towards the front.
5. At this point you can decide to disconnect all connectors for easier installation/replacement of your DEC switch. If you do, the idrive controller connector is a clip-in, press the tab on the side to release. The 2 DEC switch connectors have a notch that fits into a tiny hole on the connector socket surface. I used a mini screwdriver to 'lift' the side of the socket and the connectors came out easily.
6. Remove the 2 torx screws that hold the current control module and remove it.
7. Remove the revealed screw that holds the phone compartment on its front side and lift the compartment towards the front. The ICM module to which you need to connect the 2 wires, lays below.
8. This last step of dis-assembly was accessing & releasing the ICM connector. The initial problem is that even when you release the connector lever, there are 2 plastic extensions/flanges from the side & in front of the connector that block it's complete removal. So after fiddling around in acrobatic finger movements in there without success - I can tell you that the easiest way to release it is to open the 2 central console rear screws which were revealed when you removed the rear seat ventilation cover in step 1. Once these screws are removed, it's possible to lift the rear of the console about half an inch which will be just enough to release the ICM connector as the blocking flanges are now higher...if you work alone, use a small piece of wood under it to hold it in place for assembly.

Connection:
Now that we have everything exposed and easily accessible, need to do the following.
1. Prepare the wires. The supplied 61130005197 wire with contact is long enough for the connections. Use a crimping tool to connect a 61131383776 contact to the bare end of the two wires.
2. On the ICM connector side, remove the connector cover. The connector is made of 2 parts that slide into each-other. a double & a single row. Identify the empty slots for pins 31 & 45 and slide your new wires in. Make sure they are fully inserted.
3. Channel the wires inside the center console towards the front and through to the same place where the DEC switch connectors appear.
4. Slide the new wires to the DEC switch connector slots 4 & 5, making sure ICM 31 goes to DEC 5, and ICM 45 to DEC 4 (see attached ISTA wiring diagram).

Assembly is a reverse of dis-assembly. The center console clips are very rigid and require quite a force to 'click' back in.

Next step is to activate the switch via coding.
Based on the various forum posts & my own experience, I suggest a full VO CODE of the car. after removing 205 & adding 2TB to the options list. This took care of adding the SPORT settings menu to the CIC, added the Kombi graphics and made the proper settings for ICM & EGS now shows S1-S7 when shifted left. Note if you do that, other personal coding will need to be recoded. Some I have include activation of BMW Online menu, the digital speed display, memory off for the A/C etc.

Edit: After VO coding of the modules, need to FDL code the SZL Lenkrad_Schaltpaddles -> nicht aktiv. Otherwise a fault error for the missing shift paddles will be registered in the module fault memory.

Result:
1. What can I say. I'm very happy now. I love that finally I can have a more accurate steering at highway speeds and I can't believe how better is the throttle response. In a way I find it a shame that people buy the 'hardware', and such minor 'software' settings can transform what is essentially THE function of the device they bought...

2. I'm yet to understand what exactly is the programming difference between this mod and an original 2TB purchase. Is there a way to actually identify this difference?

3. I have no ECO PRO functionality and while I tried to add 4U2 to the VO, It seems my KOMBI does not have the firmware to handle it, and I have a discrepancy in display wording. CIC shows COMFORT/SPORT/SPORT+ while KOMBI shows NORMAL/SPORT/SPORT+. The animation is also missing and coding the car with a later ZeitKriterium left me with the heater showing the residual heat logo all the time. So I dropped it for now and maybe if I figure out how to upgrade the I-Level, it will be an option..

Afterthought / additional suggestions:

1. The 1st dealer I went to only had the 2 wires, and didn't have in stock the extra pins. He sent me to a 2nd dealer that showed stock on the system. When I went there, the guy laughed and asked how many I wanted. He gave me a bunch for free and told me that while it's not clearly identified in realoem or told by the dealer, in fact the contact pins on both sides of the wires (the DEC & ICM connectors) are identical and widely used in many connectors and cars. They themselves don't use the outrageously expensive items from BMW...
2. Further info showed you can use alternative wires, ready with the same pins crimped, from an Audi dealer - item # 000 979 009 - Easy...
3. The DEC switch is phasing out to a 'modular' model. See realoem 61319267892...

If someone has any question about this mod please ask.

vo code your kombi to 09/11 will change your Normal mode to Comfort, alternately change the coding on your kombi.
KOMBI-> 300C ECO_FDS, 3C ->FDS_MENUE_TEXT_3->VERTE=04 (DEFULT VERTE=03)
KOMBI-> 300C ECO_FDS, 3C ->FDS_STATUS_TEXT_3->VERTE=04 (DEFAULT VERTE=03)

Or you can change the CIC to show Normal by change following code
HU_CIC -> 3000 HMI, 78 -> FDS_NAMING_MODE -> BIS_0711 (DEFAULT AB_0711)

Very nice right up miotoo, and thanks for the additional information Nison!

What is different about this new "modular" DEC switch? I can't tell from this picture:

http://realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?...61&fg=35&hl=33

Any one have a picture of the real switch in a car?

Here you go Shawn..I also have some pics from the assembly, need to check which are good enough for posting.

Edit: Note there is probably another edition of the switch, in case the car has surround camera too (3 switches at the bottom)

Thanks Nison. I did try to VO the KOMBI with 0911 but still didn't have 'Comfort'.

Checking in the CAFD file, I don't have a section KOMBI-> 300C... at all. I think it exists on from main version 8, requiring also a later SWFL..

I might go the opposite route you suggest, changing the CIC.

Thanks. I need to go look at mine now, and see how it is different.

Can this be swapped in place for the original version?

What did you pay for this kit?

I wish the chrome trim piece around it was offered in ceramic as part of the 4U1 ceramic option.

It may be in a different section on your CAFD.

Did you try just searching for FDS_MENUE_TEXT_3?

I looked at mine, which is a 10/10 build, and it looked the same, except mine has only one button on the bottom as I have only the backup camera.

This one though has room for two buttons, and looks like you can just put a dummy plate on the top button if you don't need it.

Other than that, it looks the same.

Yes, it's a direct replacement body, and a blank button is used in case the function is not installed.

These are the only FDS search results in my CAFD..

Edit: Forum didn't like a 3000+ pixel height image. Rename/remove the pdf extension for the original.

What switch part number would I need for my 2011 528i, no cameras, pdcs, etc. Would 61319202935 work or the modular one 61319267892. It looks like the modular one is $50 more?

Here I ordered the one I need, and given they didn't have it in stock any more, they sent the more expensive 'replacement' with no extra charge. But it's possible the one you need will be available and then you have a 'cleaner' setup ie. no blanks..

61319202935 seems correct for no-option except 2TB.

The potential of getting a different switch, what I was thinking anyway, if I will succeed in enabling ECOPRO in the future, I have the label..

Short update to this thread:

After install and VO coding 2TB on the entire car, the SZL module registers a persistent and repeated fault for Shift paddles open circuit, visible with ISTA D.

I think coding Lenkrad_Schaltpaddles to nicht aktiv in the SZL module (CAFD 33D) will solve this but I did not have time to check it yet nor to know what effect will it have on the DEC switch functionality if any..

Edit: ..and another one for EGS module (CAFD 23F) but with a significantly lower frequency (7 vs 127). For this one I think 'Sportschalter_alt' or 'Sportschalter' should be changed to nicht aktiv.

Hopefully it's not 'alt' because that's the one which enabled the S1-S7 display in the past in my car.

Any update? I have a switch to install but still need to pick up the wire and connectors.

Yes. I can confirm that after FDL coding the SZL module with Lenkrad_Schaltpaddles -> nicht aktiv, the fault error is gone and the DEC switch is functioning normally.

I guess it works, but I am not sure adding 2TB and coding SZL is the correct implementation of the DEC Switch when you do not have the Paddle Shifters.

My 2011 M-Sport with Adaptive Drive has factory DEC switch and no 2TB.

My current working assumption is that the switch enabler is embedded in the ICM for any of the dependent optional functionalities.

I remember your post about having a switch but no Sports Automatic in another thread, and it goes well with this working assumption, as adaptive drive is a functionality that supports user intervention for variable ride comfort via the DEC switch.

An initial alternative to VO coding the entire car with a modified VO, was swapping 205 <-> 2TB to aktiv in ICM. That in my testing already made the switch visually responsive.

Following that, FDL coding the CIC & KOMBI values manually -> if they are confirmed to be complete, will provide the KOMBI display info and Sport mode options.

However, the above did not give me the confidence that the steering wheel stiffness was changing in Sport mode even when chassis was enabled in CIC.

VO coding the entire car is the method I suggest as our 'science' in this forum is based on reverse engineering, not manufacturer procedures, so that is the potential to get to 'completeness' as much as possible.

As Esys is a factory floor tool, another assumption I have is that the coding procedure is based on the market option definitions. In the F10 2011 catalog for my car, Germany market, the 2TB option is Sports Automatic Transmission with Shift Paddles, and so VO coding 2TB into the SZL module does enable by default the shift paddles as expected.

The shift paddles however are not a mandatory option with 2TB in some markets. So either Esys would VO code the SZL Lenkrad_Schaltpaddles -> nicht aktiv if I change the VO SALAPA Element to such a market where the paddles are optional, or there is a follow-up Esys procedure that is not known. 2TE is not listed as an option in the Germany market for F10.

Official retrofits are only those available to dealers via ISTA-P and adding the DEC switch by itself is not there as an option.

FDL coding SZL Lenkrad_Schaltpaddles -> nicht aktiv solved the fault memory registration while keeping the best possible 'complete' coding

Interesting. I have never heard of 2TB being available without the Paddle Shifters. Everything I read shows the paddles as being an integral part of 2TB, although of course most everything I read is U.S. market based.

A requirement for 2TB in the U.S. is either ZSP (Sport) or ZMP (M-Sport), which I assume relates to the fact 2TB is more than just the paddles in that it has different shift points. So is 2TE then just Paddle Shifters for the non-sport cars?

In relation to the 2TB shift points, all information I discovered indicate that there is no programming difference between 205 & 2TB. If ordered, 2TB on my car would include the sport steering, shifter & paddles.

I can't say for other models/engines but on my car where I retrofitted the switch, equipped with N47D20 engine & 8HPxx transmission, there is no difference what so ever in software programmed to the EGS (transmission), GWS (shifter), DME (engine manangement) or ICM (chassis management) when converting from option 205 to 2TB. I could verify now that I-Step analysis & flashing with E-sys has proven successful.

The only programming change is to accomodate the 2TB shifter hardware (GWS), which is still being flashed with exactly the same SWFL & CAFD (Application software, data & coding parameters db) albeit having a different Hardware ID.

I'd say the behavior characteristic of 2TB vs 205 as far as the transmission & engine are concerned require only the related VO coding.
