DRL's changed to halos and got them brighter!

First, I want to say thank you to all the guys that took their time to upload all of the info.

I, like many others did not get the xenon package. I tested out DRL_MODUS and changed the brightness to 100%

Here are the results...

More testing is NEEDED

For brightness though, you changed HELLIGKEIT_DRL I presume.

Yes I changed DRL_MODUS to DRL_S_ohne and HELLIGKEIT_DRL to 100%

They are still not as bright as the xenon equiped lamps but I guess its a start.

I just coded my 2011 528i (halogen lights) and now I have angel eyes for Daytime Running Lights. Not as bright as Xenons, but it is something.

I have tried to code my 2011 528i (Halogen Lights), I was able to get into the other module to code the trunk close from key fob settings etc, but I couldn't change anything on the FRM module, so for lights it's giving me this error below

It says

Report - "1" Errors
Transaktions-Report: Aktion: Codierdaten lesen

File for "cafd_0000012f-011_010_012" not found1 [C012]


I am using E-Sys Version 3.18.4 Build 30168 - 2011-06-29
PSdz Version 4.4.0

Please let me know if I need a different file or what I am missing. thanks.

What PSdZData version are you really using?

That 4.4.0 you have listed as your PSdZData is from the E-Sys help screen, but that has nothing to do with your actual PSdZData version. What you see there is the version of the supporting java files used within E-Sys, not the real version of the PSdZData.

What Integration Level is your car on, or do you know when it was last programmed (month / year)?

I have psdzdata version: v.46.1

Last time I took it to the dealer for an oil change was about a couple of months ago.

They might have done an update around April 0f 2012 I am not sure. How can I find that out?

What suggestions do you have?

Your PSdZData is pretty old. In E-Sys, go to the Expert - VCM module, click on the VCM Master Tab, and then read your I-Steps. What does it say is your current I-Step?

Where to get the newer PSdZData?
I've got mine via torrent..

(I am the guy who is helping him with the coding)

My car - 2011 550xi Canadian - and the I-steps are:
Current: F010-11-09-505
Last: F010-11-03-512
Shipment: F010-11-03-511

I don't think that would help with his case directly - since his car is 2011 528i and it is imported from US; and I don't have his I-steps.

So I think newer PSdZData would help..

Hi, can anybody shed some light on what needs to be coded in order to get the brightness settings like in the before and after pictures. I checked the options listed so far in this thread and all are set already at 100% by default but the brightness is like in the before picture so there must be another setting.

On f30 there are PWM values that need to be changed for higher voltage of the halos but I couldn't find those PWM values for f10.
