ASD not working with latest update

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi,

The dealer updated my software (to v58.3) last week and since then I can't get ASD to work. The car is so quiet now compared to the setting I had it at (M4/S55).

I changed the following settings which worked before but no longer do anything:

ASD module
Model Range to F080
Engine to S55B30

Does anyone know what else I can try to get it back? I checked ASD_SOUND_OFF and it was set to nicht_aktiv, so looks ok.

Thanks

Its so not the same anymore. I feel like it's even quieter than it was when I bought the car. Anyone have any ideas I can try?

This thread might give you some ideas

Active Sound gone after latest software update?

OP wants to get the M4 sound on his 340.

I initially had the same issue where ASD wouldn't work at all.
I managed to get it to work with the original settings, but wasn't able to get it to work with settings other than car defaults (like M3/4 sounds).

Here are a bit more details of what I had to do:

Good point. Since OP said

Quote:

I assumed (possibly incorrectly) that he had tried with the default settings.

Thanks for your input guys.

I bought my 2016 340 in December (Manufacture date 8/15).

It originally came with v58.0, and changing the ASD to F80/S55 worked.

As of the latest version v58.3, it no longer works (even with the b58 setting, it still sounds extremely quiet so I reckon that ASD is not working at all).

I will try your suggestion to match the power classes between the two modules.

Where is the power class located in FA?

Also, the other option was to install the older version of ASD, but it seems too complicated for me and I don't want to risk having my car towed to the dealer. Doesn't seem like anyone with an LCI has rolled their ASD module back yet and I'm not advanced enough to attempt it on my own.

Before you change anything in your FA, you might want to try to VO code your ASD module (right-click on it and select "Code") so as to reset it to the default settings: see if it works after this step.

The other option was never to install the older version of ASD, but to install the latest version. This is however a more advanced procedure than coding and you should not try it if you are not comfortable with it.

Here's the location of FA power class.
Make sure the ASD matches what you have in the FA and see if it works for you afterwards.

Do you mean right click on ASD and select "Code" before reading it / Edit FDL?
If the dealer installed new firmware (58.3), wouldn't it have worked when I left?

Do you think the dealer updated one module and not another?

Here is what mine looks like (see if you can spot anything odd):

Hmm, everything seems ok...

Can you try and clear all the errors.

(http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=877896)

I saw someone say that it might not start if the error is not cleared.

If this doesn't work, the only solution I see, is to reflash the ASD.

Yes: just read and activate FA, read SVT and then do this before doing anything else.

Yes, it should have. I was going along with stormlv conjecture that you might have recoded ASD to get the M4 engine sound (your original post was not very clear on this point). It is still worthwhile to try VO coding: it takes no time.

Quote:

The dealer always updates all the modules that have newer firmware. However, sometimes things can happen during flashing, as witnessed by the other thread. If VO coding does not solve the issue and you feel uncomfortable re-flashing ASD yourself, I see no reason to not bring the car back to the dealer and let him sort it out.

Thanks a lot for your help guys. I've tried the VO coding and ran the app to clear the codes, but it still doesn't do anything. Not sure what can be done at this point. If BMW decided to turn off ASD with the latest update, then there's not much I can imagine the dealer can do about it.

One last thing, if you have Rheingold, can you check if the ASD is still throwing errors after having cleared them?

If so, you'd have an argument to go to the dealer and tell them that ASD stopped working.
They'll be forced to solve it with BMW's involvement.
You should know more after this.

Drove the car again and I really wish I never coded it to sound like an M4. It sounds so bare right now. I can barely hear the engine unless i really push it, at which point it is only slightly noticeable. It definitely sounds quieter than before I coded it to sound like an M4.

I haven't checked for errors yet, but even without it, can my dealer tell me if the latest update removes the ASD that I had before (i.e. b58 sound not s55)?

Sorry to hear that man.

The only DIY attempt left that I see is to update the firmware yourself.

Other than that, the dealer, with the help of BMW should be able to fix it.
I think the dealer will have to open a PUMA case and see what BMW's input on this is.

Either way, keep us posted, and good luck!
