Tired of searching the whole web for this, I now want to hear what the experts here say:
Is there any INPA Setup that works on F-Cars (in my case, F10).
If yes, which version? What Cable (E-Net, K+Dcan,...)
Links?
Yes, INPA works with Fxx Chassis, so long as you have the Fxx .IPO files installed.

It will use whatever interface you have defined in EDIABAS.ini, so ENET is fine.

Here is my INPA 5.06 with Fxx Scripts:

Hi togehter,

one general question to INPA. How can I update INPA??

For example at MINI R56 I only got the 'old' engine modules.
Is it possible to 'scan' the SP-DATEN and automatically update INPA?
I got the SP-DATEN package V49.0 but my INPA only contains very old stuff. :dunno:
I tried some things but didn't get it updated. :mad:

It would be nice if you can send me the files for the F-models, too. :thumbup:

Greetings,
Stefan
INPA is not updateable with SP=Daten as it uses only the .PRG files in EDIABAS and its own .iPO files.

Great Shawn!

I tried to connect E70 with ENET~ ODB, but failed.Is it possibale?

Probably because Exx and Fxx models, as used by the Different communication bus protocols ,so can not use ENET way, right?
For Exx, you cannot use ENET. You have to use a DCAN Interface cable.

I got the link and downloaded. My question is I have had a working inpa on my system before downloading this one. Is there a way to just copy some files into my current install or do I need to uninstall and reinstall this setup? Sorry for being such a noob.
What is in your current INPA that is not in the new one?

In any event, you can merge the two EDIABAS folders, and then just keep your old INPA folder and have this as a second INPA_Fxx folder, and you can run both INPA versions.

inpa version is 5.0

I have no idea how to merge them.

I have a f10 I need to clear some airbag codes. It had a deployed head rest and seat belt tensioners where blown no air back deployment. I replaced/repaired now I need to reset. I read I could use ncs expert and load f01 but that isnt a choice. When I run my current inpa f01 is a choice but I get error can find f01.eng
Copy new EDIABS folder on top of old EDIBAS folder, and overide any of the old files.

You cannot use NCS Expert on Fxx chassis, it is for Exx chassis only.

Use Tool32 to clear your fault codes:

Clear Fault Codes:

Assuming the fault condition no longer exists, to clear the fault code.

1) Launch C:\EDIABAS\Bin\TOOL32.EXE
2) Hit F3
3) Load C:\EDIABAS\Ecu\F01.PRG
4) In the "Select Job: F01" window, select FS_LOESCHEN_FUNKTIONAL
5) Hit F5
6) "Results" window should show "JOB_STATUS = OKAY"

Hopefully, Problem Solved.

Note: fs_lesen_funktional only read fault codes, FS_LOESCHEN_FUNKTIONAL will delete it.

Shawn thanks again. I did what you suggested and this is what I got.

EDIABAS Fehler 28 : IFH-0018: INITIALIZATION ERROR
Are you connected to the car, car powered up, and EDIABAS set for ENET interface?

Ok I think I know what the problem is but do not know how to fix it. I had the serial cable now i have the usb cable. How do I change my settings so my new usb cable can communicate?
Is this for your F10 550i Chassis?

yes K+dcan usb interface is the cable I have now is this the wrong cable?

If I remember correctly my old cable for my 2011 328i was a serial cable. I ordered the usb K+dcan for the f10/
Yes, it is the wrong interface cable. All Fxx chassis like your 2011 F10 require an ENET interface cable for use with all Apps using EDIABAS (e.g. Tool32, INPA, E-Sys, etc.). This is an Ethernet by OBDII connection.

Exx chassis like your 2011 328i require a K+DCAN interface. This is an USB by OBDII connection.

Hi Shawn,
this is my first post after presemtation.
May I have the link for INPA and scripts?
My car is an F11 525D produced in November 2011 (4 cyl, twin turbo).
Thanks for your support to all of us necwcomers.
P.S.
I have already succesfully used E-sys for coding and tool32 for errors canceling.
Regards from Italy.
