deneyer is correct. In the 2nd generation(LCI) Parking Assistant, the extra 2 side Rear Sensors are PDC type, not PMA sensors. PMA sensors are only the front 2 sensors.

Hello guys,
I have retrofitted surround view, pma gen 2, lcw and heated steering wheel with the amazing roxxor tutorials. I had problem with flex relay port in lcw but I used tool 32 to open the 5ag port. But now I am ending the pma retrofit but I have a problem with front left ultrasonic pma sensor. The fault in ista is short on positive. Anybody know what is the meaning? does the sensor need to be activate?
Thanks.

Hi, I made PMA2 retrofit on my bmw f31 with 2 PMA sensors on the front and 2 PDC on the back, this is all working but I was wondering if it is possible to activate the Active_pdc and side PDC. Side PDC appears on NBT but does not work. Its possible Coding for activate?

It will work, I did not have to re-change out the Pulse Generators after I added the extra two for the Gen 2 upgrade I did.

Correct. However just as a reminder, gen 2 uses 2 regular PDC sensors for the rear sides, not 2 additional PMA sensors.

But on my rear bumper only PMA sensors fit correctly into hole, I tried to put regular pdc on side parking sensor holes, but they are differently shaped.

My apologies, I am not familiar with the 1-series, which is why I mentioned on page 1 that my parts list may vary for other vehicles. It looks like the 1-series uses the PMA type all around except for 2 sensors on the front bumper. Find the correct part number for your rear bumper sensors here:

PDC sensor holder

Are the guides (51127384465 & 6) really required to install the extra PDC sensors on the rear bumber?

Iím considering using normal PDC holders to hold the sensors.

Might be a silly question but how easy would it be to retrofit the rear camera on the G20?

PMA2 Retrofit

Hi, i retrofitted PMA2 sensors.

No error on sensors scanning ecu.
NBT shows only the 4 sensors on side in red, no other.

Only error in pma is

ICM Interface (steering angle , front axle , effective 56.1.2) probably caused from ABS Sensors still not changed)

Can someone help me? i checked and checked again the cable, is everything ok.

Maybe DSC Still not coded?
