Oh, and yes to setting them to aktiv.

If you want the new digital display to show actual speed vs tire rotation speed, make the korrector line of code nicht_aktiv

That's very clear - thanks so much for spending the time to explain this

The PDF steps were:

76. We need to change that to a coding function because we want to write the changes to the
module.

77. Select F2 “job” select SG_CODIEREN and press ok

I was wondering if I can skip the above since you mentioned execute job..


On a separate note, if I ever wanted to revert back to factory settings, would I have to load each module and restore a blank .MAN file? Is there an easier way to restore my master in one go?

The first acts as a backup for key files for all the modules. When you write a blank .MAN file to reset a module to factory state, it retrieves the proper code for that module from this partition on the CAS. The other partition is the Comfort Access Support ( or Sequence. Forgot the exact nomenclature). That partition controls the comfort access features of the car. Same for the LMA or NFRM. Like having two partitions on a PC with two different drive letters.

So to change code In a functional module, the code has to be written to that module specifically. There are some exceptions to that, but that's the basic answer to get you coding

Additionally, the first time you read a module, I believe a full car read is required and NCS does that automatically no matter what module you may have chosen. Then you can choose individual modules once the full car read is completed

Hope this helps

Step 77 is the execute job command

And yes, writing a blank .man to the entire car will reset every module to factory specs. Getting late. Will pick this up tomorrow. Or later today your time

Ok thanks - and am I right on the restoring to factory settings?


Also I've got folding external mirrors but dont have comfort access. I was hoping to get the code so that when I lock the car, the mirrors also fold - would this work on my car?

- Auto Fold outside mirrors and windows **Note E64’s have the auto window rollup/roll down already enabled
Module KGM

Yes you are right it will restore if you code a blank .MAN file to a module. What I would do though is read it, and copy a version to another folder and rename it so you know which module it relates to. You may find a factory reset will lose some things you currently have setup.

You can fold up the mirrors without comfort access, not sure if it relates to that line. I have coded mine with comfort access but it was a while ago. I do know that it's definitely possible. Back the module up, and try some different things. Good luck!!!

Thanks zerocks1 reesy_csl - woohooo!! Managed to get the following coded:

folding mirrors on lock/unfold on unlock
Acoustic alarm (menu also enabled like the US models)
BC speed (got the speed showing too)

Zerocks1 this is awesome!!!!!!!!!111

I was hoping I could:

1) Enable the panic alarm - heard that this is triggered by holding down the boot unlock button for a few seconds. I changed the following but it still didn't work - have I got the right module?

Module: CANS
PANIK_ALARM
aktiv


2) Would like to use the fold mirror function at any speed - currently limited to 20mph or below - I found:

SPEED_AUTO_UNFOLD
wert_01

SPEED_MAX_FOLD
wert_01

FOLDING
aktiv

But didn't know what to change it to?

3) Turn on the low beam headlights when unlocking the car - I tried changing the LMA module:

WELCOME_LIGHT_ACTIVE
aktiv
WL_AL
hart_einschalten


Have changed WL_AL to soft_einschalten but this still doesn't work. I changed to aktiv but this brought up an error during coding.


Appreciate any tips on the 3 points above.

Cheers,

reesy_csl beat me to the punch. His post is exactly what you need. You can also search the web for a program called NCS Dummy (make sure its ver 4 I believe it still shows as beta). That will allow you off-line to compare a module's file you have already read, and provide you all possible settings for each line of code to experiment with. It will also allow you to compare two modules files for differences. Normally when the car will not accept a change of code, it is because it senses a mismatch with available options for that line of code. All changes do not necessarily change the function of what you may think it will.

BMW often uses a single module for multiple car lines with code that exists but does nothing for that particular car line. And in some cases an additional piece of hardware may be required for certain functions. Blue tooth as an example. Lines of code exist in CAPPL/CIC module, but the car must have a BT module. That's just an example. Rear Cam, Side CAM, Night Vision are other examples

Anyway, glad you got this going. I had my doubts the 635 will work as it has. You're a patient man

Cheers

Thanks Guys. Yes 635d and with Pin7-8 untouched

So is it just a case of finding out what the settings are on a module that has the panic alarm as an example and comparing it to my module?

I had a look through the useful docos from Reese_csl and had a play but still not having much joy on panic alarm, dim headlights on unlock and autofold speed limit threshold.
