voltage

Hi.

Icom web gui showing

Klemme 15 voltage: 11905 mV
Klemme 30 voltage: 11905 mV

Ista/d showing

Important!
Vehicle voltage only 11926.00V.

I have a 10A charger connected in supply mode, thought this would be enough just for initial read etc. Any suggestions? anyone know about the mod to show 15v? any issues using this / url for it & instructions how to use?

(update.. I've got the mod which makes ista/p believe both 15/30 are 15v but Ista/d still showing lower voltages..)

thanks
(2011 F11)

Hello!

Using the voltage mod for ISTA/P is on your own risk. To check the voltage is one of ISTA/P most important safety features and it avoids a damage of the ECUs during flashing. With a 10A trickle charger you will not have enough power for an update with ISTA/P. The result could be some nice destroid ECUs.

Yes, exactly, damage can happen. Just to add something .... The people are likely not invest money into 70 Amps charger, you can use one with lower amperage as consumption during flashing depends on the equipment of each car.

If you are going for instance flash fully loaded F10, 70 Amps charger is a must.
If you will flash F10 just with basic equipment, my experience is that car consumption is some 18 - 21 Amps during complete flash.

So, as said milkyway your choice ...

Thanks Guys,

Any budget but stable recommendations for the average home user? My F11 does have a few "toys"

Hello!

In America the Schumacher INC-700A is popular and not so expensive. I don't you know if you can get one also in UK. I for myself use a CTEK MXTS70, a good choice but you have to pay nearly 1.000 Euro for it (or a little bit more). Some dealer sell older equipment of some BMW service station. May be you can find there an used one for a good price.
