Ace, do you know which hex value to change to set the comfort access yet?

How far off are you from trying this out?

This is the hex value data for the coding options, the comfort access values that we currently know of are stored in line 3004 at position number 0:

Code:
CODIERDATENBLOCK : {00003004} 00000000 000B "PA"
PARZUWEISUNG_FSW : {00003004} 00000000 0001 0A81 {} (01) {h} {} // PASSIVE_ACCESS
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 0007 (01) // aktiv
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 000B (00) // nicht_aktiv
PARZUWEISUNG_FSW : {00003004} 00000000 0001 01EC {} (02) {h} {} // PASSIVE_ENTRY
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 0007 (01) // aktiv
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 000B (00) // nicht_aktiv
PARZUWEISUNG_FSW : {00003004} 00000000 0001 01ED {} (04) {h} {} // PASSIVE_GO
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 0007 (01) // aktiv
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 000B (00) // nicht_aktiv
PARZUWEISUNG_FSW : {00003004} 00000000 0001 0201 {} (08) {h} {} // PA_INTERBROADCAST_DELAY
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 0007 (01) // aktiv
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 000B (00) // nicht_aktiv
PARZUWEISUNG_FSW : {00003004} 00000000 0001 0202 {} (10) {h} {} // PA_CONFIG_FBDLONG
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 0007 (01) // aktiv
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 000B (00) // nicht_aktiv
PARZUWEISUNG_FSW : {00003004} 00000000 0001 0203 {} (20) {h} {} // PA_CONFIG_FBDREFCHECK
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 0007 (01) // aktiv
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 000B (00) // nicht_aktiv
PARZUWEISUNG_FSW : {00003004} 00000000 0001 0A87 {} (40) {h} {} // PA_GETRIEBESPERRE_VR
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 0007 (01) // aktiv
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 000B (00) // nicht_aktiv
UNBELEGT1 : {00003004} 00000000 0001 {} (80)
UNBELEGT2 : (00)
The bit masks are in the brackets, with this info you should be able to read your CAS, convert the value at position 0 to binary and decode what options are set, then add in the comfort access option.

DFEL750I has value 0x11 at position 0 on line 3004.

in binary this is: 00010001

From the table above passive access coding info is stored at bit 1 of the first byte(bit mask = 0x01), if its a 1 its active a 0 not active.

The 0x01 in binary is 0001, transpose this over the original hex value:

00010001 = orig value at 3004 pos 0
xxxx0001 = bit mask for comfort/passive access

The bits are identical meaning passive access is active in DFEL750I's car... but we already knew that!

The above info is from a .C03 file, the .C04 and .C05 look the same.

Hope this helps??? Im pretty confident just sticking 0x11 in pos 0 in line 3004 will work.

Stuart

This is great, we are all getting into it. I had a lazy day today. Too much chat on the fest so I didn't look at the CA at all except for the last hour of today. I have been working with the codes sent to my by DFEL750I....I am sure this will work

Hmm... Just checked my floor pan area on the front passenger side. There is no provision for the antenna!?

It looks like the plastic part can easily be replaced though!

Watch the video, there are two plastic clips holding it in place. Remove the clips and then slide the plastic cover out of the way and you will then see the mount in the foam under the plastic cover.

Sorry ACE! Its at the end of the I didn't watch all of the vid and immediately went out to have a look. Please accept my apologies! I saw the two clips holding the plastic cover on which forms part of the wire harness guide.

I hear your face lifting the exterior, so won't be completing the install till then. Great work keep us updated!

I will complete the Comfort Access in about two or three days. Facelift is not going to stop me getting the CA going.

Hey ACE, awesome! So it's working now? Does it work with the old key?

You just coded the bit in the first byte of line 3004???

PS: Did you watch the video in Post 77 yet? I am curious to know the result of what is under the plastic cover under the carpet These plastic cover shields are only in the front, not the back.
Sorry didn't see this post. All information I have supplied is from the CAS files in the NCS/INPA DATEN folders. If you disassemble the coding files it shows what bits and bytes change what options. It maybe very useful for you as your using dashsoft!

Ha ha! Well let's wait and see, how do you know it's now active?

I'm still very interested to know why there are two versions of the CAS. I know earlier versions of the light modules were specific to xenon or halogen, later modules LM2 for example can be coded for either. Perhaps it's something similar or a subtle hardware/functional change that differs them.

Great work so far! Any change of getting the key coded quicker! Lol

In this video I demonstrate the Comfort Access system is now active and that I just need to get the key coded.

I will be happy when I see it working fully with the standard CAS!

I'm going to start pricing this up soon, will double check wiring is in the doors etc...

Will most likely make the harnesses myself for the antennas, there is no way I'm going to be able to find it at a breakers! Nor will they remove it for me!

Tyco electronics are quite generous with the samples so hopefully should be able to get something put together properly!

Just checked again I have the mouldings as you say, just removed the plastic cover.

Even got a cheeky footprint too ha ha!

Is that Australian dollars? That a great price! I'm in the UK, we don't get many wrecked 7's around my way. There is a specialist breakers 50miles away but they are expensive and pretty difficult to deal with. They don't have any with CA in at the moment.

Video is great by the way! Looks like its definitely going to work! Glad we don't have to mess around changing the CAS, that was scaring me a little!

USD Stuart, I get all my parts from the States. There are no specialist BMW salvage yards here either. I have dealt a lot with Nabil and he is always fair, goods always arrive quickly and are always in perfect condition. I highly recommend him. He is dismantling a whole lot of 7's.
Check him on ebay http://stores.ebay.com.au/Esra-Motor...id=p4340.l2563
