That's right ACE, there is another module though, look up A214 in WDS.

It sits on the CAN bus and has the level sensors wired to it. It then communicates with the headlight modules on the LIN bus.

Another simple system by BMW! Lol

That is the PA wiring coming from the food module.

It is from the four door connectors on the body that you pick up pin 3 and then run them to the connector block behind the fuse panel behind the glovebox. Then you run a wire from the connector block to pin 17 on the CAS.

Thanks ACE. Where did you get the new contact crimp for the door connector? An old harness?

Yes, I had parts from an old wiring loom so it made it simple. Looking at diagrams now. The part number of my LM2 with adaptive headlight control is 9153273

Hey Stuart,

A214 is the adaptive headlight module for pre-facelift cars.

With the facelift headlights, the LM2 incorporates the adaptive control within it and A214 does not exist.

FACELIFT....... no A214, now controlled by LM2




PRE-FACELIFT....... A214 instead of LM




Ace

Odd, I have different diagrams!? Are you using a CD or online version?

That's right come to think of it, I had to buy the LWR version just for vertical aim control.

Sounds like you have it all under control! There is a wire change by the way, for the led output to the light switch that indicates automatic lights are on.

Spaghetti or BMW planet?

Yeah it's the wire that drives the LED in the light switch panel, someone cocked up on the LM2 I think!

You need to move wire is pos 17 to pos 60.

It's detailed in BMW TIS 61 35 285

Odd I know! I can confirm it works though!

Think I will use spaghetti from now on, BMW planet must be out dated or schematics linked incorrectly!

So you have retrofitted Adaptive Headlights to your pre-facelift car?

Hey, no.

I bricked my original LMA when coding the VO.

I just upgraded it to an LM2 because I wanted to have welcome lights. My LM2 is just the standard version for headlight levelling and not the adaptive version. Mine says E6X LMII LWR, yours should be the AHL version I think, I can't remember off hand.

Go back to Tool32, select 'load SGB File' navigate to your E65 daten folder and load the .prg file NCS chose to use.

In the list on the left (it's all in German I'm afraid!) find fg_lesen and double click it. A window should pop up and it should return the incorrect VIN.

Now go back and find fg_schreiben and enter your 18 digit VIN in the arguments box, at the top bar is a button with an arrow, hover the mouse over, should say execute once or something along those lines, click it.

You should now get a window saying job processed ok and the new VIN will be shown, go back to fg_lesen to check.

Some modules need to be powered down and back up for the changes to take affect, I remember the NAV being a pain, it may have had something to do with me not doing it properly at the time!

Do the same for your CDC.

By the way you have a lot of modules returning FF?

Stuart
Hi Stuart
I tried this today and loaded up NCS to read the EHC and it used EHC_E65.PRG (from C:\EDIABAS\ECU I believe), so I went in to Tool32 and used the c_fg_lessen and attached is what it returned..

It seems INPA is seeing one VIN and Tool32 is seeing the correct one..wtf

Anyways, please switch this to PM as I don't want to hijack Ace's thread any further
(it's just I couldn't attach the image to the PM lol)

Cheers

Hey Burger, does your car have your LM coded for two stage Brake Lights?

I am trying to work out that code too.

Here is what I bought on eBay



http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/170784562...ht_2635wt_1180

I got this from the same seller that sold me the Dashsoft.

Cool

Are you talking about the Brake Force Indicator? If so, then I think it's standard on facelift 7s (isn't it).

Yes, i wasn't sure if it was standard or not. But I do know that it is coded on the LM.

Can you provide a dump of your LM?

My LCM was partially bricked , everything worked except the turn signals .
The reason it got partially bricked was cause the battery on the car died
as I was coding the LCM . I didn't realize I had been in the car for over
4 hours reading & experimenting with production dates for some members
on this site . My car light came on & said low battery in the middle of coding
& the LCM was affected by it .
