You can code one ECU, all ECU, or any number of ECU's in between. Make sure if DME / DDE is being coded, motor is not running.

It seems like you need 4 posted replies in threads and then wait 1 hour for PM-functions to be updated.

Thats what I get for just lurking all these years.

This DIY is intended for F-series BMW's alone. I'm sorry but I just received word the E-series work in a complete different way that the F-series. The E-series us INPA and NCS Expert to do their coding. This requires a different cable as well. The E-series needs to communicate with a CAN network, where as we are talking across a TCP/IP enabled network with the F-series. For the E-series, please see this thread: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=451145 and in particular, this post: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...8&postcount=15


What you need
- An ENET cable.
- E-Sys program, datafiles, token and PIN
- A laptop (a PC would work too but it wouldn't be comfortable in most cases lol)

Now, you could go overboard and get a power supply cable for constant supply to your car but if you minimize your coding sessions to 30 minutes and have your car running for at least 15 minutes in between, it should go a long way. Also, it's advisable to do the browsing in the code offline and only do the coding while being in your car (more about this later on).


ENET Cable
There are basically two ways to get the ENET cable. You can buy a complete cable, or you can simply build one.

If you are not interested in building one and want to spend a little bit more money to get a working cable, then this is a site that has been confirmed working by some of our F10 friends: http://codecard.lt/electronics/tools.../prod_651.html ..I wouldn't recommend other sites, although they may work, problem is that they have not been confirmed working yet.

-> You can also buy a cable from ImSW1, a fellow coder and he's also the one from who I, indirectly, received my own cable. His cables are great. He builds and ships them for $25 USD. Usually, after he receives payment, he can have the cable ship the next day and arrive with you only two days later (that's for the 48 contiguous states, Alaska and Hawaii might take a few days longer due to the distance (cost stays the same due to it being shipped flat rate with USPS)).

The other way is to build a cable yourself. Cost for this would probably range anywhere between 10 to 20 bucks. You will need to solder a bit but it's nothing too serious if you follow the instructions to the letter.

To build your own cable, you will need the following:

- OBD2 or OBDII connector
- RJ-45 cable and connector
- 510 ohm .25 watt resistor

The schematics of the official BMW cable can be found below in the attachments and how to solder your cable can be seen in the photos directly below (thanks to Sean [ImSW1]).

Attachment 698264

Attachment 698273Attachment 698274Attachment 698267Attachment 698268

An even more comprehensive DIY for the ENET cable can now also be found in the attachments: http://www.f30post.com/forums/attach...1&d=1339310785


If you cannot find the OBD2 connector, please look on ebay. A lot of the connectors are being sold there.


E-Sys program, datafiles and such
I currently work with E-Sys v3.18.4 in combination with the v46.3 datafiles, which work like a charm for me. I have read reports about newer builds but also read about a lot of install problems and such with those builds so it seems best to stick with these for now.

You can find the link to E-Sys in this text file:
*** Link removed, see below ***

For the datafiles, please download this text file for all links (24 in total):
*** Link removed, see below ***

Little advice regarding the datafiles: It is over 10GB in total and rapidshare is VERY slow. Unless you like to spend hours and hours to download it all, I recommend buying a one-time PRO account for 10 bucks. Most of the people (including me) did this and it makes a LOT of different (up 3 hrs versus 10 minutes per file).

For installation on how to install these files, please the attached PDF file called "E-Sys Installation.pdf"


Programming Versions vs. Vehicle Data Status
Here is a worksheet that covers what data set (psdzdata) lines up with what chassis code (for example, the F30 lines up with the F020 datasets).


Getting Started
Please see the 'E-Sys - Getting Started' PDF files below at the attached files to get started with coding. These are the same files I used the first time to code and should be self explanatory, just follow everything like they state there and you'll be ok (of course, where they talk about the F10/F010, please change that into F30/F020 respectively).

Mac Users: Download the E-Sys - MacOSX installation and configuration.pdf file below.


Making a Back Up
It's quite easy to make a backup of the CAF files from your car. Basically, as soon as you start reading the CAF files from your car, the E-Sys program automatically stores the files into "C:\ESysData\CAF". All you basically need to do is to copy these files and store them somewhere safe. The best is to make a new copy (and keep the old!) every time you want to code, this way you always have a copy of the last working version (just in case you break something lol).

Here are the instructions that were given to me the first time around:



Once you have done the above, simply copy those .ncd files and store them somewhere safe.


Cheat Sheet
You can download the F30 cheat sheet with things I have done so far below at the attached files. The cheat sheet is called "F30_Cheat_Sheet_XXXXXXXX.pdf", where the X's are is basically the date I updated the cheat sheet (year,month,day).

Please also see a more complete cheat sheet for the F10 below at the attached files to get a general idea of it all.

Please note that the F10 coding is slightly off from the F30, meaning some of the functions are named different or located in different named modules and, of course, some things are not available to the F30 (such as the automated trunk closing). Just use the F10 cheat sheet for the F30 to get an idea, to see what might be possible and such.


The rest...
These things have been coded and confirmed working by me so far:

- Video in Motion
- Turned the Seatbelt Gong off
- Side View Cameras on at all speeds
- Change DVD region code
- Remove disclaimer
- Remove PDC + cam disclaimer
- Tire pressure + temperature in TPMS
- Mirrors close by pressing doorknob (comfort access only)
- Mirrors open automatically when closed with comfort access
- Disable A.S.S. by default (can still be enabled but starts with setting 'off')
- Remember last setting of A.S.S. (works only when not disabled by default)
- Change ringtones
- More to come (or already there, check the cheat sheet!)


Little note: after coding someone else's F30 tonight (6/7/12), I noticed that some of the modules might have a slightly different name. The functions were still named the same, just the module name was a little bit off.


Even more...
I added some more files that I just picked up elsewhere that might be of help:

- E-Sys Editors and Viewers.pdf (this will help with backing up, restoring and reading the CAF files).
- E-Sys_Coding - VCM_UserManual_v1.4.PDF An E-Sys usermanual. It's a bit dated but still pretty good for overall use


Anyways, bottom line is that the coding for the F series works. Instead of paying 155-170 USD for Video in Motion, it only cost me the cost for a cable (which you can make yourself, the cost for that could be anywhere from 7-20 dollar).

(For those living in Hawaii who need help coding their F10 or F30, or help with the install, just send me a PM and perhaps I can help you out (I wont charge but you will have to come to me, and everything I do is done at your own risk, of course.)).


Disclaimer: coding is pretty simple to do, but it's also very simple to brick your car if you make mistakes or by other unexpected circumstances.. everything you do on your car with coding, like with everything else, is all done at your own risk. Also please keep in mind that I am doing this for educational purposes only and that I am not making any money out of it.


Credit and thanks goes out to Shawn, Andy, Sean and DreamCar. They have helped me in many ways to get this far! Without them, I wouldn't be able to show you guys all this





I'm sorry guys, due to some recent developments I figured it would be safer to remove the actual links to both e-sys and the datafiles from this post.
I have had real issues trying to get a link to an ESYS version and token for coding my F30. The last one i downloaded had a visrus and am now very nervous about just trying any old link. Does anybody have a link they could PM me that gives the best versions for f30 including token and pdsx files please? thansk in advance for assisting.

LAN Adapter should be set for DHCP. You do not manually configure the network settings.

Coding Auto unfold mirror on engine start

Hello,
I wonder if there is a coding possible on auto unfold mirror when we start the engine. Mine just set the 0 km/h (expert mode tab) so after i drive or backward the car a little bit the mirror is auto unfold.

i think is more convenient when the mirror is auto unfold after we start the engine.

sorry for my bad english, appreciate your answers, thank you.

Hey Shawn
I have a 2014 328d and looking to:
1) Code in general beyond bimmercode app
2) I urgently need to replace a fuel injector and need to code it. Dealer wants $950 to replace injector #1. It's $216 from getbmwparts, so that's $700 in labor at BMW dealership.

Can you share link to esys and whatever else I need? I've tried reading all the documention on bimmercode.com but I can't open it because I get my account to work over there. I've messaged the mods atleast 8 times but no one ever replies. I'm able to log in but I can't post, reply, send PMs, or view and documents. So the wealth of coding info over there is useless to me. I've basically given up because there's no way to contact anyone over there without having a fully enabled account.

Thanks
Tom

Edit: I bought a BMW ENET interface cable 2 years ago when I first created that above mentioned account. OBD to ENET. I can give model number if required. I also have OBD to USB from when I used to code my old Volvo S60R. Not sure if that would work or not.
Edit 2:it's **************. Had it wrong. And for some reason 2 years later I can now post.

PM sent. Although, I am not sure fuel injector need coding. I think you need to do some routing in ISTA.

My understanding is that you need to code the timing to the car. I could be wrong but there are high and low limits and when you exceed the threshold is when the car throws a code

Does dealer know there is a change in coding?

Hello,
I want to know if dealer knows that we made a change on coding when we code via bimmercode?

I wonder if ISTA+ is getting connected there will be an error or coding change notification

Thank you,

Thank you,
Question is far to broad. For general FDL Coding, there is no issue. If FA has been modified, than that can be issue for ISTA.
