6WB Retrofit - Coding Required

I finally got around to installing my 6WB MFID Instrument Cluster.

Since mine was a brand new virgin Kombi, no EEPROM work was necessary to blank the donor car's mileage and VIN. Install was a breeze, and Coding was just a matter of adding 6WB to the VO, changing VO Production date to 1211, and VO Coding DKombi and HU_CIC.

Since my car does not have ECO Pro, I get just the Comfort and Sport mode displays.

Upgrading from the basic Kombi to either 6WA or 6WB is a dramatic improvement, and worth every penny. If I already had 6WA though, I personally would stick with it rather than invest in 6WB.

Thanks. It's about $2k for a new one. I got mine from an overseas BMW Dealer, but you can get it from Bimmer-Tech:

Yes, you can code it with E-Sys. If it is new and not used, you can do just as I wrote in my original post, which is add 6WB to the VO, change VO Production date to 1211, and VO Code DKombi and HU_CIC.

thats it? just plug/play and FA code and code Dkombi and HU_CIC? So i can buy car 2012 and cables will be the same? what if the 6wb will be used from another car?

If it is used, you must desolder EEPROM from Motherboard in Kombi, use EEPROM Programmer to Blank Mileage and VIN, solder EEPROM Back, and then install to car, flash DKombi, and the VO Code DKombi and HU_CIC.

Not on every DKOMBI you have to desolder EEPROM
first you can try do it without do that
at me it works fine with a soic8 clip
just for info

PS: First of all you have to check your connector to KOMBI
if you dont have optical fiber, then you cant use DKOMBI

I am quite confused....

I do understand, that the used 6wb clusters could have different milage stored.. so I have to sync the milage with othercurrent ECUs, but I do belive, that there is some master milage unit, which provide the actual value. Since If I buz some used parts/ecus, I have to syncronized them with some main /server unit?

Hi Shawn, can you give me steps by stpes instruction to code 6WB on F10.
You are gru of all this, I would really appreciate if you can send me each step to how to do coding,
I bought used cluster, but I do have eSYS for coding...

Those are Step-by-Step Instructions.

If you do not understand them, you need to read the Coding Guides included in E-Sys package.

And since you buy a used Kombi, I assume then that you have plan to blank VIN, and Mileage if needed, from EEPROM before installing.

Hi Shawn,

Regarding. blank VIN, and Mileage if needed, from EEPROM before installing.

Do you have details or steps to clean the EERPROM..

Thanks

48.3 was used though March 2013, so it should be fine.

Hi shawn,
I also installed the 6WB MFID Instrument Cluster.
But after FA coding, there is no cafd in DKOMBI at the SVT area.
So, I can not code DKOMBI module...

All I have done is as follows.
1) Connect E-Sys and Read FA from car at the Coding Function in Expert mode.
2) Save FA and Edit FA
3) Add 6WB to SALAPA and calculate FP with no error.
4) Save FA
5) Select Expert mode, VCM function and select FA.xml file at the Vehcle Order.
6) Select the VCM Master tab and click the Write FA FP button.
7) Select Coding function and read FA and Activate FA and Read SVT.

My cluster get error it should be updated when ignition on.
The Tachometer and speedometer does not respond when engine on.

I am very glad if you give me some advice...

Sorry, I forgot to attach the screen shot...

This is the E-Sys SVT screen with no cafd in DKOMBI module.

I coded the FA according to the instruction from this post.

But I got an message like this which was not described at this instruction and I clicked yes.

You need to try and inject CAFD into Kombi ECU:

Connect => Read FA (VO) => Activate FA (VO) => Read SVT (VCM) => Left-Click on DKombi => Click on "Detect CAF for SWE" => Select the CAFD from latest I-Level => Select OK => Right-Click on DKombi (the ECU itself not the underlying CAFD) => Select CODE.

And may I ask one more question just for my study...
After VO Code of DKOMBI, the SVT shows ECUs(28,1), the "1" font color is red.
And DKOMBI module font color is black while others are blue.
Please let me know this means something error?
Thank you very much in advance.

Your 6WB looks good.

This is normal. The different colors depict the different states of your actual ECU firmware compared to the reference firmware (PSdZData version)

The SVTs recorded in red letters indicate the reference system state of an ECU. The blue ones indicate the actual state of the ECU. Black entries indicate SVTs with identical reference and actual state.

I have brand new 6WB installed from 6WA on F30. I added VO but was not able to add e production build date. Not sure it matters?

I was also not able to inject the CAFD as the button for “Detect CAF for SWE” was not clickable. Pls help. I have attached a screenshot for reference. What steps did I missed ? I was not able to proceed further for DKOMBI coding...
