I tried again (with a blank .TRC file) with the same results. The TCM_ALIVE_MONITOR error dialog keeps coming up and I never an active F4 button. Rats, no more attempts today for me.

Mark,

Did you empty the text out of the .man file and also the .trc in notepad and then save them both? It's unusual that your getting exactly the same frustrating error I had, and that solved it for me.

reesy_csl is correct

delete the contents of both the FSW_PSW.TRC and FSW_PSW.MAN Save the FSW_PSW.TRC as text file using 'all files' below the save as. Do the same with the now blank .MAN file saving it as FSW_PSW>MAN (you have to type the .MAN in ) and save it as 'all files' name.

Remove all but these files that may have the exact same name in the work folder. Only one FSW_PSW.TRC and only one FSW_PSW.MAN. Close NCS and close the EDIABAS that had been minimized

Car on and retry one more time

Mark, if the empty files do not work, use the ones I attached. They are from a 2010

First delete the extension .TXT, then save as FSW_PSW.TRC and FSW.PSW.MAN respectively. Remember to save as type 'all files'. Place them in the work folder overriding any files with the exact same name

Afterthought: And, since I never asked where you got the cable from, verify that pin#8 is not there. If it is you will have to unsolder the shunt between pin #7 and #8.

and one more time check any of the profiles for the correct boxes checked. Open NCS>Load Profile>Edit profile>password is REPXET>FSW/PSW>from CVT checked>FSW_/PSW trace checked>FSW_/PSW-manipulate with FSW_PSW.MAN checked. all others unchecked>OK>consistence check>OK close and restart NCS

The dreaded pin 8 contact

Hi James and Alan,

I just checked my cable. Yes, my cable has the dreaded pin 8 present too. Sucks.

I will open up the connector backshell soon, desolder wire going to pin 8.

Do you folks recommend just desolder the wire going to pin 8 and leave the contact alone or do you recommend removing pin 8 contact completely off the connector after I desolder the wire going to it?

Thanks in advance.

BTW, vacation was great but its good to be back home. No place like home.
We came back last night.

I miss my Betsy big time and I will taking her out for a long drive soon!

Here's a quick vacation photo for sharing.

So I am assuming on all of the working cables Pin 8 does not exist at all? Alan, would it be possible to put a picture up of yours, so I can be certain before I unsolder this one.

Thanks a lot!

James

welcome home Dan. The pix looks like Charlotte Amalie, St Thomas? If so I'm jealous. If not, I'm still jealous

As to the pin#8,. just desoldering the wire to it should be sufficient. No electric, no longer live. Give it a try, it's working for most.

Regards

Looks nice Dan!! Always a good feeling to return from a break, batteries recharged!

You'll find the desolder fairly painless, the pin will drop out as its held in position by pin 7, and the solder joint. After this the cable works perfectly, and you'll find yourself tirelessly reading modules for fun!!

Enjoy your reunion with Betsy bud!

I'm in!

Deleted the contents of the .MAN and .TRC files in the work directory (files exist but are zero length - no content).

Now to the fun stuff!!!

Allen you are

and thanks to reesy csl also.

UPDATE: (in more than one way) - I now have no legal disclaimer on start-up. That's all for tonight, but it's a promising start.

I could not locate the module where it was, so I went to the original.TRC file that I saved when I first got in. That file is 193K and I assume has "everything". I found the disclaimer as "LEGAL_DISCL" at line 5669 (about 83,475 bytes in) and changed it to "nicht_activ", etc.

I know it is better and safer to do atomic vice macro changes, but it did not find the LEGAL_DISCL per the instructions as I don't seem to have a CAPPL module on my 2010 M6. I will eventually load and save each module as a separate .TRC file and then search for particular strings. Once found, I will then know which module to load and make surgical strikes (loading changes via smaller .TRC files) from then on.

My wife can't understand why I'm so happy that after $95 for the cable and too many hours of fooling around I can now start the car without the disclaimer screen. She does not "get' why this is epic...

BTW - she does not drive the car (by her choice) which says a lot about her not being a "car person".

I need the item names and settings for a couple options if anyone has them:

1) I want to have the seat belt gong stop after 2 gongs

2) I want to enable DVD video in motion (for my passenger, I know better than to watch while driving)

In my single large .TRC file I have located and changed the following 3 options:

LEGAL_DISCL
nicht_aktiv

BC_DIGITAL_V
aktiv

BC_DIGITAL_V_KORREKTUR
aktiv

As I said in my previous post, when I hunt down the which specific (2010) module these can be accessed from, I will post that info.

Now, I'm off to load in the BC_DIGITAL_V and BC_DIGITAL_V_KORREKTUR changes - then I'm really done for the night!
