7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Coding new DME on E65

I have just fitted a brand new (remanufactured?) DME in my 2003 E65. The unit was supplied by RPM Motorsport ($800) with the correct software and vin number programmed in. A friend with Carsoft 7.3 performed a CAS / DME synchronization, as instructed by RPM Motorosport, and hey presto! the car started and is running fine. I performed a full quick test with DIS v57 and got the following error message:-

"DME 28D6 - No DME coding - DME not yet coded - Fault currently present - Fault does not cause warning lamp (MIL) to illuminate."

I got back to RPM Motorsport and they replied that the DME needs coding with SSS Progman or Autologic. I was a bit put out by this revelation as their website stated quite clearly that the only additional process required for their new DMEs is synchronization with the vehicle CAS.

I have a friend who has access to a fully working SSS Progman v32 installation (with the yellow head OPS interface) and we would like to have a go at coding the DME but are afraid of 'bricking' my $800 investment.

Help from any experienced SSS Progman user out there would be much appreciated(a Progman screen by screen run through would be great).

You can perform these functions with SSS, but it is not the fastest method to code a module. If you have access to NCSexpert I can walk you through coding the module that way. Otherwise you can code the DME through SSS and it will determine what needs to be done and present you with a measurement plan before any action is taken on the vehicle.

You can perform with SSS. It takes about 25min and make sure you hook the charger. Battery need to between 13V and 14V. I did it and it was fine.

Coding new DME on E65

Thanks to all you guys who replied to my thread about coding my new DME. In the end I decided not to risk voiding the warranty by trying to code the DME myself. I found an independent BMW specialist who performed the coding with his Autologic setup, for a very reasonable 40.
