Back from the dead! Im trying to get all the wiring for this install but 1. having issues finding the door and 2. can't find the mirror wire for a good price (only new about 70$) 61129281712.

Question is. Would the eBay seller be able to make the wire for the outside mirror? What is the length of that cable so i can try that.

I found a guy who made the wires for his F10 and doesn't seem too hard but i would rather get it right and order the 61119281258 Surround view HSD. Has anyone tried the before?

When ordering has anyone had any issues? I told them the same thing "eBay seller rfbat - This can be ordered custom from several sellers on eBay. The exact terminology used for my order and for another forum member was “FAKRA HSD LVDS Straight Female to FAKRA HSD LVDS Right Angle Female Dacar 535 4-Core 1M”, with a pin chart of “1-4, 2-3, 3-2, 4-1”.
and he said its about $20 a wire.

Any other parts i will be needing? How is coding? Im looking into picking up the coding cable and software for about $20 but idk how to use it. If its easy to use ill get it if its not then it ill charge me a bunch for that. I also need to code my new LED fogs and anything else i get

Cable type

Hi,
Does anyone know what type of cable is used from the control unit to the passenger side door hinge pillar?
I think it's female to male straight through but I'd like to confirm.
Mine got damaged and I found a supplier on eBay that can provide any length and type needed but I need detailed specs.
The one I'm looking at is FAKRA HSD LVDS Straight Female to Male

Hello, can somebody please indicate the lenght of the reverse camera cable (blue connectors) that is part of 61119281258 kit? I have a F31 and that kit is for F30 so I'm not sure if it could be ok the same. Specific kit for F31 (61119281259) is almost double price, don't know why, the only difference should be in that cable lenght.

I saw the picture, I suppose that is cable part of 61119281258 you didn't use because you already have rearview camera. Can you please tell me the lenght of that?

At the end I bought the harness 61119281258, hope it fit on the F31 chassis. For whom who may be interested, the rear camera cable included in the kit is 5,6 meter long. Next Sunday I will try it and I'll post updates.

So, finally, I've installed the camera and everithing worls as it should, even on my HU_ENTRYNAV with 6.5" display. Only the HSD cable is little bit shorter (about 50/60cm) to be routed in OEM way and I had to find an alternative I didn't wanted to, but no alternatives. Now ahead with surround view....

Hi,

I have an issue with my rear camera install. I have the parking lanes and the obstacle identification which works, however, I get a rear camera failure error. After checking with Rheingold, it says the cable might be damaged. The problem is, the camera pinouts are the same as what roxxor quoted as this is an OEM cable which I bought from a scrap yard. I tested the continuity and all is fine. Basically all works fine except there is no image from the camera on the iDrive.

Did you correctly code all the modules? Did you initialize rear camera?

Hi, I added 3AG, coded all modules just to be safe. Also, I coded the actual ECU's and not the underlying CAFD. Here are some pictures.

Can you please confirm all the modules? I have a F32. I know this is the F30 thread but its the same retrofit pdf. When I calibrate/ Initialize the camera it does nothing or maybe I'm doing something wrong. I t also says no camera installed.

You need to code at least REM, HU, FEM BODY and TRSVC then you need to initialize the camera with ISTA. If nothing happens check the cable again to see the correct pin alignemt and/or perform a troubleshooting with ISTA.

Hi all,

I have a question for those who did the retrofit. Why must the car have PDC front? If it has only rear, would it not work?

Not sure exactly why other then cars that came with surround view from factory came with front PDC. Its probably one of those things that can't be coded out so you're not always getting a PDC error.

Anyone in the NYC/tri-state area able to do this for a fellow member?

I'm not much of a DIY person nor do I trust myself doing this. My wife has been wanting this feature forever. I have a 2016 340i with Rear View and PDC (front and back) already.
