Hi,

I have another question about coding. My previous car (E91) has been "chip tuned" Most tuners act as if they tweak and tune all settings for your specific car. But I suspect them to just upload a different map to the motormanagement unit. But the results where fine: drove a lot better, more power and even less consumption.

But what is the main difference between "tuning" and "coding"? Both happen using OBDII interface. So can we also code engine parameters? (not that I want to change stuff there, except uploading an improved map if available)
I'm just wondering...

Thanks!

Coding is adjusting parameters/settings within given software.
Tuning is changing firmware.

You have Trimmed PSdZData, which means either you do not use E-Sys Launcher PRO to open E-Sys, or E-Sys has Incorrect Target Connections, or this CAFD is not mapped in Launcher's CAFD Mapping Database.

Hello, which value need to change in E-sys to change inside trunk button to open trunk? Not it's open just that small hatch on my 2010 gran turismo. On key fob trunk button also open just small trunk and only diamond button opens big trunk any advise?

If possible...what I want is --> Key Fob trunk button open/close Big Trunk, Diamond Button (holding) opens small hatch. Inside button open/close big trunk.

E-sys Launcher Premium v2.8.0.143 Car Series Choice

I have just installed v2.8.0.143 and want to be sure that I choose the correct car series. I have an F36 (2016 435xi GC): do I still use F020 as in the previous launcher? Or is it now F036?

That is not correct.

E-Sys Launcher PREMIUM = F036 (AS IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN)
E-Sys Connection Target = F020

Thank you Shawn! I hadn't used it for awhile and appreciate the refresh.

A really odd one - Only one side affected

Ok guys, this one is damn peculiar. I'm coding the angel eyes to be fully bright with headlights on. 2015 F33. I tried the cheat sheet and additional hints from the forum but no luck.

I then found the info for changing both "Standlicht Modus 1" and "Standlicht Modus 2" in the two TMS entries:

00, 03, 00, 00, 64, 03, 00, 00, 64, 03, 00, 00, 2E, 04, 00, 00

Changing 2E to 64.

Here's the thing - only the passenger side gets brighter. I undid and redid the changes and still only the one side affected, both rings. Definitely did Modus 1 and 2, in both TMS. Also cycled the ignition stopping and restarting the car. Thoughts or ideas?

I'm a little confused about cheat sheets. Maybe someone can clarify.

Are they specific to specific chassis? If so, are there any for the G01?

There is no Gxx Cheat Sheet. Use builtin E-Sys Launcher Cheat codes, which are ECU specific.

I can edit FDL on all modules except for FRM. When I try to 'edit FDL' I get an error and cannot proceed.

Any suggestions?

"An error" is meaningless.

Maybe details of the Error might help someone out here help you?

Make sure you are using correct connection target and use E-sys 3.27.1.

Guys - any ideas on this? Or do I just experiment with some of those other byte entries?

Why do you need to merge? They can already display at same time.

There is some redundancy. That would be an impressive script to be able to automate merge.

So I'm having some issues. I installed new seats so I'm trying to VO code them. I'm following the "E-Sys - VO Coding Guide" and I can get to the Page 9 (the part where under SALAPA you can add 3 digit codes) and I'm afraid to put codes in. I've been reading the post below which has the 3 digit codes and I'm pretty sure I need to add one of these (711 4MA 459 456 <-My guess on the one I need) but I'm not sure which one. If I add the wrong one what will happen? And if I add the correct one is that all I need to do to reset the seats?

https://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=966607

The seats I put in are the 18 way adjustable ones.

Thanks!

Bummer...just bought a G01. I prefer "old school" coding, circa 2012. You have a cable, a VM running on a Mac, and a marked-up PDF with the changes you wanna make.

I get that some people might find integrated cheat sheets in eSys easier. I don't. Now, I have to download the XML, install it and manually find the codes from the description tags. Two-parters are gonna be especially cumbersome.

Just my $.02.

For F30, you need an ENET Cable not K+DCAN Cable, and E-Sys & PSdZData, not NCS Expert and SP-Daten. PM sent.
