E-Sys To Disable Headlight Washers

I am needing to disable my windshield wipers for various reasons.

I am new to the E-sys environment but I have an ENET cable on hand and have been doing some research on how to use the E-sys system. I am noticing that there is chatter about TokenBuster creating a program that generated tokens for free E-sys usage but that seems to have been taken down by now. I also cant seem to find a place to download the system and launcher to begin with.

My question is this. Can someone please briefly tell/explain to me if there is an easy/free way for me to get E-sys/launcher if I am just going to use it to disable the headlight washers? Maybe an old version that has this capability that is readily available. I have found the code to disable the washers I just need to get into the E-sys program if possible. (3080  WW_SCHEINWERFERREININUNG set to: nicht_aktiv)

If not, has anyone pinpointed which fuse to pull to disable the washers? Id be willing to atleast give it a try to see if it throws a code and if not that would be a sufficient enough solution to my problem.

Thanks in advance!

Here you can get E-Sys, Launcher Pro 2.8.2 and current psdzdata Lite (see Point 2: Software Installation):

Great, thanks!

Still would love to hear if anyone has pinpointed which exact fuse controls the headlight washers as well

There‘s no fuse for the headlight washers.
It‘s controlled by the FEM ecu and in there‘s a problem the output will be locked.

I doubt that the headlight washers can be disabled, as they're a safety feature, required for ECE approval with low beam headlights of more than 2000 lumens output. The main reason for the requirement is that dirt can impair the optical features of the headlamp and cause glare.

This thread suggests that the code mentioned will do the trick. Can anyone confirm?
