E83 NCSExpert Daten V53 - Vin is faulty

Hello everyone. I have searched everywhere for the solution to my problem but so far no luck. Any input will be appreciated.

I have performed various successful Ex codings, however I am trying to code an e83 X3 using NCSEXPERT but I can't connect, I get a "Vin is Faulty" error.

In INPA both dots are black.

I updated the daten for the E83 to V53 using BMW Coding Tool.

This is a 2008 BMW X3.

Really frustrated and any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

For E83 internal pins 7&8 on the cable have to be bridged.

You'll either need to solder them or bridge them some way to code the X3.

You could also get a cable with a switch like That way if you ever need to unbridge the pins for E9x, E6x chassis you won't have to open the cable back up.

First of all thank you for your quick reply.

Does it make sense that I can go into INPA and do functional jobs on the x3?

Also I thought that was for early model x3. This is 2008.

I will try soldering today. I have the cable from onestop electronics.
If you have the one stop cable, you should have the adaptor then.

If you can run functional jobs with Inpa & get a proper ECU list,

Go into device manager, select your cable & make sure the latency is still set at 1 and hasn't reverted back to 16.

Funny thing, I lost the adaptor that came with the cable. I'll order a new one asap.

Everything else checks out, that must be the reason.

Thank you for all your help dstrickland, greatly appreciate it!
