Glarefree Highbeam -- front camera error

I've had no success getting the "no dazzle" aka "glarefree" highbeam working after reading various threads.

I have adaptive Xenons and the Driver Assistance package with the KAFAS2 camera. I've coded my FRM and KAFAS2 modules as recommended in this thread: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=644297 and my high beam assistant works if I manually turn the headlights switch on/off. So I can get the HBA to turn the highbeams on/off.



To enable the glarefree functionality, I removed 5AP and 8S4 from the VO in my 2013 (07/12) build F10 M5, carefully following the directions in this thread: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...=660719&page=2, especially #46.

Unfortunately I get a "Front Camera Error" if I select the KAFAS2 => 3050 => GLAREFREE_HIGHBEAM_ENABLED => glarfreeHB_on_F010. When I read out the fault using the Bavarian Technic software it says that there's a communication error between KAFAS2 and FEM.

Note that I recently re-flashed my ECUs so my I-Step is a very current 13-11-503 (using PZsData v.51.2). There is no FEM module listed.

Anyone have a solution? Could it have anything to do with my car not having fog lights?!?

What modules did you code with the modified VO?

I do not have fogs on my F30 and it has no affect.

I coded KAFAS2 and FRM. I assume VO coding HU_NBT isn't necessary.

Also, can anyone tell me what the FEM_BODY module is? I don't have it.

FEM_BODY is the "Front Electronsics Module"in F30, and has mostly what F10 has in FRM, CAS, and JBBF.

You could try coding KOMBI too, or just try coding all of the modules with the updated VO minus the obvious ones like ACSM and AMP and CAS. Double check that you removed the correct option codes from your VO file. I almost removed 5AC by accident.

Good suggestion. I confirmed that I have 5AC and not 5AP and 8S4, and then VO coded KOMBI, KAFAS2, FRM and JBBF again tonight for good measure. (I might try other modules tomorrow.)

Still get the "Front Camera" error in the instrument cluster when I code KAFAS2 => 3050 => GLAREFREE_HIGHBEAM_ENABLED => glarfreeHB_on_F010. Attached is the error diagnosed by the Bavarian Technic software.

Any other suggestions?
