Question Coding "Speed Limit Info" and "High Beam Assist"

Dear coding experts,
My F20 is equipped with Lane Departure Warning and Anti-Collision Warning, so: Kafas2 camera.
As my F20 is older than June 2012, I have read that I can enable SLI ("Speed Limit Info") and HBA/FLA ("High Beam Assist") without any FSC code, but I have not been able to.

Has any of you successfully enabled any of these features?

Thank you!!

What exactly did you do to try and enable SLI and HBA?

For HBA, you will not have the proper Stalk with HBA Switch to toggle HBA on and off.

Thanks for your answer!
Those are the parameters I have modified:

KAFAS2
SLI_ON_OFF F15_to_II01 = 01
COUNTRY_CODING_DISPLAY ECE_white = 00
UNIT_DISPLAY km/h = 02
FLA_ON_OFF FLA_on = 01

KOMBI
SPEED_LIMIT aktiv = 01
KI_PIA_SPEED_LIMIT aktiv = 01

HU_CICHB
HIGH_BEAM_ASSISTANT aktiv = 01
SPEEDLIMIT_INFO aktiv = 01

FEM_BODY
FLA_AKTIVIERUNG LDS_in_A_oder_2 = 02

I am able to toggle HBA on and off from the "Lights" menu in "Settings".

Why are you attempting to FDL Code these two which require many settings? You should add both option codes to FA and VO Code car.

I know, but I have never coded to FA.
I prefer to FDL code and control each parameter I change.
Do you think I am doing it the wrong way?
I have also read what VO coding changes when coding SLI and it seems I have not forgotten anything... it seems.

Yes, I do. HBA, and SLI in particular have not only many FDL Codes that need to be set, but exactly how they need to be set varies base on Country Controller and other variables. Something this complex should be VO Coded to ensure all FDL Codes are set and set properly.

I would add 5AC and 8TH to FA, and VO Code those same 4 Control Units. It will take you 5 minutes, and you will know with certainty when you are done that it was properly coded.

I think though for SLI, since you have KAFAS2 and not KAFAS, you will still need FSC Enabling Code, even for your pre 0612 Build Date.

I rely on you as an expert and will do my first VO coding!
Will it overwrite other settings I have FDL coded such as Connected Drive, showing digital speed in Kombi, use of fog-lights when turning,...?

THANK YOU!!

Yes, it will wipe out all previous FDL Coding, but it is simple to come back afterwards and FDL Code them again.

It is the "FLA always on" function which can be turned on and off from the idrive, and only from the idrive.

I have VO code and I just get "---" in my kombi display. Nothing happens.
I got no error when coding!
How can I know whether I need a FSC code for my F20 or not?

Thank you.

If SLI is not working after VO Coding, you need the FSC Code. Again, you have KAFAS2.

Ok, no problem.
Where can I purchase it? My local dealer has always told me I can upgrade NOTHING.

By the way, FLA is also not working after VO Coding.
I though having Kafas2 was better than just Kafas

KAFAS2 is newer, and probably is Technically improved over KAFAS, but added security came with it.

You cannot purchase the FSC Code as far as I know. BMW AG won't sell it.

It will show ---- after coding. After coding lock your car, let it sleep and try again after an hour.

Hi, ap90500, today it stil showing "--- ---".
As shawnsheridan says, perhaps I need a FSC code, although I have seen some other members to enable HLA and SLI without it.
Anyway, if I cannot purchase the code... how to get it? Is it impossible to update this features?

Thank you, experts.
