BMW CAFD ID Cheat Sheet

For the one other screwball besides myself out there that might find this useful, here is my BMW CAFD ID Cheat Sheet.

Click image for larger version

Name:	BMW_CAFD_ID's_v.53.0.jpg
Views:	190
Size:	259.7 KB
ID:	449960

BMW_CAFD_ID's_v.53.0.pdf

The data is based on the latest 53.0 PSdZData, and the way I mine the data, which is very complicated, uses only the latest CAFD version, so older CAFD's would not show, and in some cases an ECU won't show. For example, Combox_eCall CAFD is not shown under any F10 targets except F12 as latest cars now have TCB instead of CMB_ECALL.

It is not perfect, but pretty damn close.

I browse CAFD files in my spare time, just for fun.

So for example, if I want to check the FDL Codes for an F15 BDC module, I look at the CAFD ID Cheat Sheet, and I know that its BDC_01 module uses CAFD ID 000017BE, and then I can open cafd_000017be.caf.005_218_003 in CAFD Editor, and see what makes it tick.

Nice work.
Looking at CAFD, it will tell you a lot of things that are hidden by E-Sys. For example, KOMBI and KOMBI MID, where as in E-Sys, it's all KOMBI. That document will help in figuring this out

No, that won't work. It is the CAFD ID that links a CAFD to a specific ECU.

The CAFD Name Syntax is as follows:

cafd_000000f9.caf.005_002_009:

000000f9 = CAFD ID
005 = Major Version
002 = Minor Version
009 = Patch Version

Searching only for 002_009 would produce these 4 CAFD's from 4 completely different ECU's:

cafd_0000090a.caf.003_002_009 (ACSM_4C)
cafd_000011b3.caf.001_002_009 (ZBE05TC)
cafd_000000f9.caf.005_002_009 (HU_CICHB)
cafd_0000000f.caf.005_002_009 (CAS_04)

Of course, only HU_CICHB is correct one.

I think something is screwed up for the F20 column...
Kombi is 9c8 not 760...

Also if those could be sorted alphabetically by module name like the rest would be great too

For F20, there are two different Kombi's and both are shown:

KOMBI L7_MID = 000009C8
KOMBI L7_BASIS = 00000760

I forgot to sort F20 and F15. Sorry.

Basis is the basic Kombi. MID is Option 6WA Extended Info Kombi.

is there any easy way to see the folder of every single .ncd file exploded so that searching is easy?

If you mean to search across multiple CAFD or .NCD files, then no.

Well you know when you wanto to search some options it is pain in the ... as youhave to open the single .ncd file and then scroll every single item that drives me crazy. Better would be a list to look at ;-)

Actually i think you can...

You can open each of the CAFs and save as FWL to a folder... then just use Windows search to "search in files" and should highlight the FWL that has the keyword

Yes, that should work, but it is rather cumbersome having to open and save every CAFD, as there are over 2k CAFD files in PSdZData.

If you narrow it down to say the 35 or so in a particular chassis, it could be manageable though.

I would just open every ECU FDL in the FDL editor and "Save as FWL" there are probably 20 files....... at least for your vehicle.... not saying of doing it for every single CAFD

I thought that is what I wrote...

"If you narrow it down to say the 35 or so in a particular chassis, it could be manageable though."

Incidentally, my car has 35 unique CAFD.

My question: does this refer to the last set of three digits or the next to last set of three digits of CAFD name -- i.e., in the above example CAFD is it 002 or 009?
Thanks

Look at the example given:

cafd_000000f9.caf.005_002_009:

000000f9 = CafdID
005= Major Version
002= Minor Version
009= Patch Version
