Coding ? - comfort access and folding mirrors

I was wondering what would happen if I coded the following:

Close windows/fold mirrors when holding lock on Key Fob:
FEM_BODY/3053/KOMFORTSCHLIESSUNG_FB to aktiv

Fold mirrors when holding lock on Key Fob or Comfort Access:
FEM_BODY/3110/ASP_BEIKLAPPEN_BEI_KOMFORTSCHLIESSEN to aktiv

Will these two codes conflict with one another?

What I definitely want to do is to have the mirrors fold when I press and hold the door handle in Comfort Access. My manual says this should happen by default but my car only locks and closes the windows.

Just the opposite, they are needed in conjunction to fold the mirrors with the fob.

You also need to code FEM_BODY / 3110 / ASP_AUSKLAPPEN_NACH_KOMFORTSCHLIESSEN to aktiv to unfold the mirrors and windows via CA or the fob.

Thank you Frogman. I read on another post of yours that if I code the following, the mirrors will fold with just normal locking from the key fob and comfort access?

FEM_BODY 3053 KOMFORT_SCHLIESSEN

FEM_BODY 3053 KOMFORT_SCHLIESSEN
Yes.

The KOMFORT_SCHLIESSEN value (werte=xx) is the amount of time you have to hold CA or the fob before the mirrors will fold.

The default value is 0F (in hex) and the units are in 100ms (1/10 of a second). That's 15 in decimal, or 1.5 seconds. That's way too long for most people.

I code this for people one of 2 ways:

1. If you want the mirrors to fold every time you lock the car (people use folded mirrors as the verification that the car is locked), then set the Werte value to 00 (no delay).

2. If you don't want them folded every time, but want a shorter delay, I usually set the value to 02 (200ms or about 1/4 second). A short touch/click will still lock the car, but holding it just a little bit longer will fold the mirrors.

To roll the windows up or down (and the sunroof), you have to continuously press the fob button (probably a safety feature). There is no one-click windows up/down feature as far as I know.

Hi,

I know this thread is quite old now, but I have been told that to get the auto folding mirrors using the keyfob you have to have the comfort access. By default I understood that with comfort access, this would be the case by default (without needing to code).

So based on that, I dont believe you can code it unless you have the comfort access?

I have in the past got someone to code the mirrors for me, but it never worked. Whether this is because I need comfort access or whether the code change just didn't apply properly I am not sure.

I paid for what I thought would do this, but all I get is the button inside the car that I can press to fold/unfold, and therefore you actually need 2 options in order to have the auto folding mirrors :-(

Now, I have also heard that for security reasons, they have disabled the auto folding part of it, so I am now not sure whether buying comfort access will actually allow the mirrors to fold/unfold with the keyfob...I am still trying to find that out, but to be honest, half the BMW staff don't seem to know either, so maybe the functionality is available with the comfort access pack, but you may still need to code it (to override it being turned off)?

I am so confused with what actually is needed these days to get half of the features, and am going through a battle with BMW dealer at the moment because of half the things that they said was included and later established is part of a pack/option which I actually asked about in the first place. I think the problem is that they change so frequently that it is hard for the staff to know what things actually do....and then because of everybody suing for the slightest of reasons, this then explains why they turn everything off to save them from a law suit!!

Sorry for the rambling, but just wanted to mention what I had been advised of regarding the comfort access. Not sure if this helps or makes things worst! lol

I just tried to fold mirrors with CA and it worked. Didn't even know that it would do that..guess it's obvious since closing with CA is the same as with fob.
