No dash warnings/errors but tons of errors being reported by Tool32

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I haven't done a ton of coding but just the usual stuff that most people are doing with disabling disclaimers/warnings, TPMS temp/psi, enabling A/C setting memory, disabling LED warm/code checks, ... just cosmetic stuff

I ran the EDIABAS/Tool32 tonight and was a little surprised to see 9/21 ECUs having errors (no errors show up on my dash though). The ECUs are (along with Satz#)): ????(4), FRM(6), ZGW(7), ????(8), FAS(9), IHKA(1), DME/DDE(18), ICMQL(19), CAS(20)

I don't recognize any of them as far as ECUs that i've actually coded. But the one that worries me a little more is the DME/DDE with 7 errors and i haven't done any coding on that for sure, although it make sense what Shawn said about some modules having dependencies on others.

I ran F5 on "fs_loeschen_funktional" which i guess clears the error. But what worries me a little about just clearing the error is... does it really fix the error? or are we just telling it to stop reporting it?

Its almost like when you take a car apart and put it all back together again, then you find a whole bunch of extra parts left over, then say, "forget about it, because the car is all put back together already." or maybe a better analogy might be, after doing work with plumbing under the sink, you find a pool of water on the floor, so you just throw a towel down and call it good because now the floor is not wet anymore

I hope i'm worrying about nothing But it would be interesting if others out there with no errors on their dash ran this tool to see what kind of results they get and maybe compare notes? I attached mine ...

BMWs tend to throw random phantom codes. Clear them. Ones that come back are potential problems. Others are nothing.

out of curiosity have you ever flashed your car?
i dont use tool32 to scan my car since i have ista
but every time i flash a module i get a crap tonne of codes that show in ista but car says everything is fine.
After I flashed the entire car i had about 7 thousand error codes in ista.
cleared them out and never came back
but every time i flash a module atleast 30-50 codes show up per module

wow.. that's a ton of errors lol

i'm still relatively new to coding, so i'm not sure what you mean by flashing. I do simple (cosmetic) coding things like I mentioned in my OP. I've not done anything more advanced beyond that.

What is this ista tool you mention? Is that something I can download? and how does it compare to INPA?
