Try running ISTA and see what comes up as fault.

In ISTA, under "Vehicle information"->"control unit tree"->"display fault memory" shows nothing?

Pin 1 front pdc to pin 48 rem
Pin 2 front pdc to pin 36 rem
Pin 3 front pdc to pin 53 rem
Pin 4 front pdc to pin 40 rem
Pin 5 front pdc to pin 41 rem
Pin 6 front pdc to pin 52 rem

is this correct?

Have you checked for errors with ISTA?

DIY says:

Connect branches A2–A7 as follows to plug A174*14B

SW 54-pin socket casing, on REM A174:
- Branch A2, GN/WS cable, to PIN 48
- Branch A3, BR/WS cable, to PIN 36
- Branch A4, BL/RT cable, to PIN 53
- Branch A5, BL/SW cable, to PIN 40
- Branch A6, BL/BR cable, to PIN 41
- Branch A7, BL/GN cable, to PIN 52
Connect plug A174*14B to REM A174

hi checked data and no faults in any of the ecus which I find surprising. Looks like the pins are wired correctly too!

Just did the retrofit. As a note for others, you need to connect both of the following wires for the PDC on/off switch to work.

CC PIN1 to ICM PIN28
CC PIN2 to ICM PIN6

My (new) center console switch has the buttons for traction control, sport/eco up down buttons, and the PDC button.

If you have rear PDC, the PDC button will work without having to code front PDC. This is a nice check to perform before moving on to other parts of the install/coding.

Thanks jkwhar,

Does anyone knows the length of this wire and which pins are required to make it myself?

The lengh is short, less then 12" since the ICM right next to the ebrake. Can't seem to find the pin size for it though.

Hello,
greetings everybody! Half a year ago I bought a 2014 F20 (CIC navigation)- sadly without PDC front and combox. I got into the PDC retrofitting a month ago, this is by far the best How-To i could find, i hope it works for the F20 as well


I did some research and in my opinion I need the following parts:
66202338070 retrofit set front PDC for M sport 0337 and M aerodynamic 0715
61129357958 cable set for F20 front bumper, no problem here as well
61319252911 fun fact: I checked this part on ebay, you can buy one of these for like 30€ - if you dont need the PDC button
66209261617 well, ultrasonic sensor colored in blue. The original BMW would set me back 170€/piece, I checked at ebay and found these: https://www.ebay.de/itm/NEW-OEM-BMW-...QAAOSwODFaXJCJ what do you think?

51117324343 as far as I get it: I glue this things on the inside of my bumper? Sadly, I didnīt find anything for the F20. Possibility 1: I am too dumb to google. 2: it doesnt exist. 3: they are the same for the F20 as for the F30

Besides the parts, I have three more questions:
a) some "How-To" do list a ECU in the parts list, do I need it or not?!
b) quote starting post: "On the guides for the PDC holders, drill the holes carefully to 18mm." Iīve checked some front bumpers online, I didnt see any guides on the backside, can someone confirm there are guidelines?
[not really related to the topic, but well:
c)I plan on retrofitting backup camera and combox as well, do it all together or split it in 3 different tasks? There are a lot of imformation about the backup camera, but not so much about the combox).]
(i have no experience working on my car, thats why i want to know everything in detail before i start working on it)
sorry for the bad english :S

The pdc mount is under the retrofit catagory. (I picked a random f20 so select your correct vehicle. Also, there are two types of mount. One is for m-sport and one for non m-sport)

a) If the ECU you're speaking of is the REM, it depends if you have the pins for the PDC. When I checked mine, I didn't have the pins and needed to replace and code the REM.

b) This also depends, I believe most, if not all OEM bumper should have the markings on the bumper. Mine did.

c) Do them in steps. My final was to have surround view but to have surround view, I need front and rear PDC. I did the rear PDC, then did the front PDC and then added surround view. This way if something didn't work, you know its only within what you were working on.

Goood luck!

I found one ebay auction where you could see the markings (and 20 where you could see... nothing), i ll just go with a "there are markings".

The Combox will be a lot more work, not like doing it, but gathering all the information. Every How To i find is for E60 or E90 or in combination with installing the whole CIC system and... weīll see...

Which VO did you use?

Back PDC works but the front doesn't? Have you tried running ISTA/D and if theres any error?

My ISTA isnīt working...

This is the link to my VO
https://picload.org/view/ddpriidw/esys.png.html

I put 507 and 508 in it
... Afer removing the 507 the PDC Rear and Front are Working. One Problem is that the PDC is just Beeping. Maybe the sensors are to deep in the Front?

And my Middle Console Button isnt working too. is there any solution?
