Sometimes when the check engine light goes off, the fault is still there. An OBDII reader will tell you what it is, even if the light is off. It's the best way to know and I have had this on my 535 when after a tune I installed and the gasket around the air box was not installed correctly. I got a mass air flow sensor fault. Even though the light went off, I still read the code. Best to find out what it is.

In some cases you can get away with using an older PSdZData version if none of the ECU's on your specific chassis / vehicle options received an update in the newer ISTA/P version on the car compared to the PSdZData version you are using.
Hmmm, I think I get it. Are you saying if the module you are trying to code was not updated, you can code it with an older version of PSdZData?

That is correct. With the latest large update of the 5-series to 48.2 many cars actually left their dealerships with 48.3. The difference between 48.2 and 48.3 was minor and the majority of the ECUs could still be coded with 48.2 because 48.3 didn't update them.

Thanks. Now, am I correct to assume if the module you are trying to modify has been updated, then you may not recognize or find it?

If you are trying to modify an ECU that has been updated to a later i-step which is higher than you have, E-Sys will throw an error at the "read coding data (from memory, may not be exact wording)" stage (see attached picture). You won't be able to modify that ECU until you get updated psdzdata.

I see. So, if you have a fully updated PSdZ file then you shouldn't run into that problem. If you do get that error, do you get an irreversible error, or do you just fail to change the code and all is well?

If you get that error you wont be able to code the car and nothing happens as no codes are written to FDL and all is well..

No. You need NCS Expert and a K+DCAN Cable for Exx Coding. You can get that cable too frone One-Stop Electronics.

To determine your I-Level, go to VCM Module => VCM Master Tab => click Read under I-Steps. The I-Step (current) is the one you want to match when you select the CAFD from the "Detect CAF for SWE" options (e.g. F001-08-09-550).
Dont want to be a PITA but i would appreciate if i understood what i did earlier so that I can avoid this in the future and help others..

so whilst programming, i lost the CAFD for kombi.
1) why did i lose the CAFD? is it normal? did i try to programme something i was not allowed to programme to my car?
2) by adding the CAFD back to KOMBI, what was I doing? was I taking an offline binary file and flashing the ECU of the speedo?
3) when i could choose the CAFD file, I had a list of lots of CAFDs to choose from? where are these files from? are they from teh psdzdata? why are they historically saved on my computer? or do the latest versions of psdzdata contain all teh cafd files from previous versions?

I would appreciate if someone could help me understand this a bit better!

thanks a lot!!!

Okay, thanks for this information, but where can I get the NCS Expert ?

With NBT, you can get USB Video by coding the following:

HU_NBT > 3003 > API_USB_VIDEO > both
HU_NBT > 3000 > ENT_CODEC_XVID > aktiv
HU_NBT > 3000 > ENT_CODEC_VCD > aktiv
HU_NBT > 3000 > ENT_MC_VIDEO_SUPPORT > aktiv
