2) lock? how? what if not?
3) so ibaDeploy only for HU_CIC/HU_NBT? what if it will be checked for other ECUs?

Check SVT.
  • blFlash: Flashes new Bootloader (BTLD)
  • swDeploy: Flashes new Software (SWFL)
  • cdDeploy: Encodes (e.g. VO Codes ECU, CAFD)
  • ibaDeploy: used to update the Owners manual for HU (IBAD).
You will only find IBAD under HU. But, as ShawnSheridan said, no harm in selecting for all.

Have you tried reflashing it and the other modules too?

Hello!

I think you flashed with the latest i-step (17-03-505). What is the current i-level from the rest of the car?

Here is my reply from another forum to @tomago, just to help the community help him... You need to provide more information, if your DME previous Istep was way too old relative to the new one you flashed, in some cases, some users reported issues where they lost certain functionnality (CC) but that has nothing to do with the three top errors.

Quote:
Ok, those first two errors tell you that you need to teach your Gear sensor. If you execute "test measures" in ISTA, it will show you procedures to remedy those two faults. If you don't understand any of this, then you need help !

The short circuit error could be related to the above two or not...

The 2TB was a mod where you opened your HU (radio), or just hooking it up in the USB port? Hard to say, but I don't think it is related.

Now why these 3 errors popped up after you flashed, no idea, there is as always a piece of information that users don't provide...

Olivier and Aboulfad,

This was my original i-Step (updated one time per BMW)


I have flashed ECU DDE with F025-17-something

Is this an issue ?

As per the other forum, you also previousely added 2TB option few months ago, can't tell for sure if there is some incompatibility between other ECUs stuck on 2014, and now DME on 2017.

Normally when you flash DME / DDE, you should also flash EGS. I would flash both modules with original unmodified FA.

I second @shawn's suggestion, although i have updated my DME alone but with a smaller software version difference (55.3 to 58.3, roughly 1 year apart) and no mods to my EGS.

Ok, so to summarize :

- Remove 2TB Sport Auto option
- Add 2TE (the original config)
- Flash DME
- Flash EGS

I did it and it's works !

aboulfad and shawnsheridan i love you :-) Thanks for your wonderfull help and disponibility.
Thanks also to everyone else who participate

I have replace 2TB option by 2TE as it was at the factory, then flash EGS, then DME, clear the errors 2 times, et voila ! I think that the issue was because of the 2TB option.

EGS and DDE Flash (2 and 2 minutes) :


Good news :


I have to do a test run to confirm but it seems to be ok, i'm so happy

Thanks again !!

I would never update any ECU without good reason, especially ZGW. Either you are fixing a bug or adding a new feature. Other than that, there is no reason to udpate.
