New Code: Active Cruise Control (ACC) Car Ahead Distance Default

A minor pet peeve of mine is that when I set the Active Cruise Control, the system defaults to the maximum distance setting for the vehicle ahead (4 bars). Every time I seem to struggle to rapidly reduce this to the minimum (1 bar).

With a simple change in coding you can now have the ACC system default to the minimum distance (1 bar).

Change the following:

ICM->3000 Daten, F8->LDM_Abstandsstufe_init->Werte=01 (the default is Werte=04)

This is a werte change. The simple edit box only offers 3 or 4 bars.

It can also be set to Werte=02 (for 2 bars default) or Werte=03 (for 3 bars)

(Note, any errors/or malfunctions will clear up after a complete car shutdown.)

Now when you turn on ACC it will default to your favorite setting.

I changed it from Werte=04 to Werte=01, but it changed my wert_04 to UNKNOWN. Is it ok or I am doing something wrong?

That's normal. Anytime you use a custom Werte value, the drop down value changes to Unknown because it has no corresponding setting defined to go with the custom Werte value.

Thanks. Nice to hear that one of these old code changes is still helpful.

Just an FYI. This was slightly different in my 2013 F01. Found it eventually and it worked flawlessly. Thanks again man! I use ACC daily so it ranks as one of my top favorite codes. Below is how it looked in my car before changing.

ICM->3000 Daten, F8->C_Abstandsstufe_init->Werte=04

ACC following distance code reset

To shawnsheridan: From discussion 1/7/2013, how do you set werte=1? What software/hardware do you need? My dealer/repair shop says they cannot do this. Help, please! Defaulting to 4 bars every time is extremely annoying because I always want 1 bar.
