I trust this is keeping your interest...
I finally accessed the Light Module (LMA module). No small feat. In short, after reading and some experimenting, I d/l one huge file known as ISTA ver 39. (this is a similar, if not the same, set of files used at dealerships), to extract one 1.5M file we need from a 36G d/l.
The attached file is needed 'LM_AHL_2.PRG'. It needs to be added to the following directory after you have extracted (Unzipped it), and loaded NCS Expert per the instructions in post #1. RENAME IT TO ALL CAPS. I JUST REALIZED I NAMED IT LOWER CASE> IT MAY MAKE A DIFFERENCE, SO RENAME IT TO LM_AHL_2.PRG all CAPS. Sorry.....Move or copy it to C:EDIABAS>Ecu folder (which would have been created from the instructions in post #1). It does not replace any existing file in that directory, its an additional file. Its the file that recognizes our LMA module and is the latest.
I also attached a readout of my LMA trace file (.TRC file for the LMA specifically). Its an example of what these files look like. This one has plenty of code you can activate or deactivate. Example, where you see the lines KALTUEBERWACHUNG_XX_X and WARMUEBERWACHUNG_XX_X. Where X, refers to various lights; from parking lights to brake lights and everything in between. There's even a Welcome Light option to choose what light you may want when unlocking the car I suspect.
Changing the KALTUEBERWACHUNG (Cold Monitoring) from aktiv to nicht_aktiv, tells the module NOT to cold check the bulb. So, no more resistors when you add LED's. I deactivated the Cold Testing of the side directional lighting, and since that was the only LED I did not use a resistor with, it does not blink for the first few seconds as it used to. I left the WARMUERBERWACHUNG setting as aktiv, to alert me if it actually burns out. I'm using the largest Amber LED I could find that physically fit in the housing. It's a 9 LED amber.
If you open the .TRC file in Word, (It should open that way when you d/l it below), you can see all the options available. It's easier to search for a specific function by Edit>FIND> enter what you are looking for eg: KALTUEBERWACHUNG, it will move to each line of code that has that word in it. Saves time. It's just an example. You do not use word documents in this process, it is only for this post for viewing purposes
Files attached. Paste the LM_AHL_2.PRG into the C:EDIABA>ECU folder. I will update the master instruction list once I have other possible changes to access other modules.
More to come...
