Try to pick only one cafd which has a little green icon on left, right click on it and see what options you get. If you have installed the psdz data correctly, you should see Read Coding data or the button on the right will be enabled. Focus on the issue, dont skip and proceed further unless this issue is resolved.
Which car are you coding and what did you pick up targetSelector as? Investigate properly, no need to hurry up. You will definitely succeed, have patience.
I am new to coding and following the information in this forum I have successfully managed to connect to the car and read the coding data .
I am now looking forward to programming.
Thank you everyone for your valued contribution and knowledge.
I have my cable, i have read most of the threads but I am still unsure about specifically what and how to download the appropriate files. Can someone point me specifically what I need to download and from where. thank you!
A Big "Thank You" to April1 for all the work he did and I benefited!
Exactly one week ago today, I PM April1 asking about cable and software for coding. On Monday, he shipped the package via USPS Priority Mail and I got it on Wednesday.
The package was professionally done, with labels on the flash drive and cable. Very nice!!
I followed this thread and others about coding, and finally decided that it was time, but links to the software was no where to be found. Fortunately April1 was the one-stop-shop for all my coding needs.
Last Sunday after April1 confirmed he had everything I need, I started preparing my Windows XP laptop computer and read up on the instructions.
Wednesday night I copied Apirl1's flash drive onto my hard drive, installed the software, studied the instructions, made some notes to get ready for Thursday night's connection to my 2013 X3.
Thursday night came, I was careful to disable anti-virus software and Windows firewall, and turned off my laptop's WiFi and Bluetooth. I also made sure I turned of all lights (automatic headlights, daylight running lights, and dome lights) in the car to conserve power. I followed the instructions to connect to my car. I was able to read the CAF file from my car and did a backup.
I had originally planned on doing just that on Thursday night. However, the process was so easy that I went on to code.
disabled iDrive legal disclaimer during iDrive startup
disbaled camera legal disclaimer
added pressure and temperature readings to the TPMS screen
enabled DVD in motion
I tried but wasn't able to enable turn signal on HUD.
April1's cable and software bundle, detailed instructions and screen shots in the "E-Sys - Getting Started Coding" PDF files paved the way to my quick success.
I greatly appreciate the contribution of all who went before me and so generously shared their knowledge! :thumbup:
