For unlocking all doors, go to iDrive settings.

Coding Help for Legal Disclaimers

First day coding. Somewhat painful but I solved my big issue which was turning OFF the Auto Off. I also made some other changes in terms of changing the Werte 00 to 01 for a few of the items that were on my hot list!

I am having some problems removing the legal disclaimers. Specifically, I am getting an error when i try to change ld_mit_timeout to kein_ld. It says invalid input when I try to save it.

I am also having trouble locating the remove Seat Belt from the ACSM module files if anyone has input on this as well.

Thanks!

Are you changing the Drop Down selection choice, or the actual Werte Values?

What is the name of your ACSM CAFD file?

I didn't see a drop down box, so i just changed the values when it was 00 to 01, then saved it, etc. This didnt work when it was text ... how do I get to the drop downs?

What is the name of your ACSM CAFD file?
i wont be able to check on this until tomorrow.

Thx

You should only rarely be changing the actual Werte Value. Only for DVD in Motion, and very few FDL Codes where you change the Werte Value when it represents an actual value (e.g. milliseconds, volts, etc.), not when it represents a state (on/off).

To get the Dropdown box, right-click on ld_mit_timeout, and select Edit, then change it to kein_ld.

Mein Auto: 2013 650xi Gran Coupe
Completed my first successful coding session last night! I would like to thank everyone on the forum for all of the great information and especially thank April1!!!

I coded the following after a FULL BACKUP:
DVD in Motion
Auto Start/Stop to start in the last used setting
Unlock doors when engine is stopped
Close mirrors, windows and moon roof through key fob and comfort access
iPhone ringtone is transferred to car
Opening doors (front and back) does not stop window operation
HUD Turn signals
HUD Entertainment List
HUD Phone List
iDrive legal disclaimer
Camera legal disclaimer
TPMS Add pressure and temperature
Digital Speed in BC

Once I got going it was extremely easy! Now to help the festers out here! I will be experimenting with some other functions as I spend more time reviewing all of the files, settings and translations.
I am in Lincoln, NE if anyone is in the surrounding area and wants to come to me for coding.

My 5 Series satisfaction level went WAY up after disabling start / stop and enabling door unlock! Did you disable the seat belt warning? For some reason I could not find the file.

Random input, but I did not see this posted in any of the instructions, so I thought I would pass along:

The follwing is translated from the enet_doku.pdf found in the C:\EDIABAS\Hardware\ENET folder cable build manual:

Quote:
Documentation to ETHERNET Diagnosis Plug

Shield RJ45 to pin 4 and pin 5 OBD connector

Instructions for Operation Connection sequence for ETHERNET diagnostic connector for running from a computer:

First, the computer, and then connect to the vehicle.

Due to discharge static charge on leading ground pins
(Pin 4 and pin 5 on the OBD plug)

Because activation of Ethernet when connecting to the vehicle
(Pin 8 and pin 16 on the OBD plug)
So to be safe, we should be using the shielded cable with pins 4 and 5 grounded to the RJ45 (shield) and we should plug into the computer first and then into the OBD II port...

While this probably hasn't been an issue for anyone using a shielded cable or not, I would hate to be the unlucky one to transmit a static shock to the car / ECU .

Well, number me guilty. I have coded over 50 cars, and my own car probably more than 50 times by itself, and not once have I ever connected ENET to my laptop first. Every time I connect to OBDII first, then I get in the car and sit in the driver's seat and then connect my laptop. I Guess I've just been lucky.

Laptops usually remain floating even if 3pin power adapter is connected. In such cases its all the same if you connect the cable first to laptop or to the car. Car is also not connected to earth though its huge mass acts as an artificial earth but it can't discharge it's accumulated charge on its own.

I agree in a perfect and ideal coding conditions, laptop/ testing m/c and car should be earthed and cable should be discharged for any static before its use.

Main purpose of a shield is to protect external noise entering into test setup.

The simple act of touching your laptop and touching any part of the vehicle chassis for a few seconds is more than enough to neutralize any electrical differences before connecting cables. Making sure the laptop touches the car (either directly or through your body) will do the trick. During dry weather the risk will be a little more.

If you buy a cable you should be able to get going pretty quickly.

Really interested in this, but also really worried about messing up my new X3. This seems a little intimidating, but I work in IT so I'm fairly confident I could succeed with patience. As long as I have adequate backups I will be able to fix anything I could mess up, correct? Thanks all.

It is pretty safe, but on rare occasion, I have seen people mess up their VCM so bad, it had to go to the dealer. Of course if you move from coding to flashing firmware on modules, you could brick an ECU. Again, this is rare, and I would not let it discourage you from coding your X3, but I am not going to lie to you and say it is 100% risk free either.

I must admit - from NCS Expert and WinFPK on E vehicles back when no one was doing it was so tough. I have had DIS working and SSS Progman working as well.

Esys is so damn easy! No text editing, no complicated EDIABAS set ups, etc etc.

I will continue to investigate modules and post up new info for F01 drivers. Mostly F10 in this forum!

Big thanks to Shawn for the software.

Thanks for the reassurance! Maybe I will feel brave enough to give it a try!

How taboo is this really with BMW? What do you do when you take the car in
for service given this 'may' invalidate the warranty? Would they know that you've made changes and would they give you a hard time about it?

Also for a leased vehicle would you restore to factory defaults before turning back in?
