Mirror auto folding success! Two modules have to be recoded in order for it to work. Very different than other models

Hold keyfob 'lock' for 2 seconds and mirrors fold up (if you didn't already have comfort access, windows will roll up at same time)
Keyfob open door or comfort access touch door handle and open door > mirrors fold down

I'd like to get involved in the group buy, but in the UK. Is that ok, and i'll just cover the additional shipping direct with the vendor?

I've asked the seller to just send us an eBay link to place our orders.

You should be able to place your order directly on eBay once the oreder link is established for us and just pay the additional shipping fee to UK.

First of all thank you zerorocks1 for the great DIY. I have a few questions that I hope someone can help me with. This cable will work with E60 correct? If you are using bootcamp and have XP installed on a Macbook can you use all the programs needed? If not then I have a XP laptop available but it would be easier to use the Mac as its my personal computer.

ON ORDER: 2011 BMW 535i, Imperial Blue, Venetian Beige Dakota, DW Trim, Premium Package, Cold Weather Package

2008 BMW 528i, Space Gray, Premium Package, Cold Weather Package, Black Dakota Leather, Dark Poplar Trim, Steptronic.

First of all thank you zerorocks1 for the great DIY. I have a few questions that I hope someone can help me with. This cable will work with E60 correct? If you are using bootcamp and have XP installed on a Macbook can you use all the programs needed? If not then I have a XP laptop available but it would be easier to use the Mac as its my personal computer.
The cable will work with an E60. The modules and where some of the line of code reside are different. There is also a slightly different method of using NCS with the E60. When you get your cable, I can advise you what those differences are. Its just a few steps in the DYI that are unique to the E63/64's.

I'm going to work on the Light Module today. For some reason it wont read two modules. The LMA is one of them. I'm going to try it with the car actually started. In NCS Expert, (f you've already loaded it), there is a file folder called DATEN. It contains multiple files for each module to be able to confirm/read/ and writer that particular module. There are some newer versions of those DATEN files a few months newer). I d/l those via an entire program called ISTA, which is the same program used at the dealership only written in a different user interface. I found it on a Russian site in English

Within that 36Gig program there are more zip files than you can imagine; are within, newer DATEN files. Going to replace the E60 files with those, to see if that works

Will report back

(and yes, NCS will work in the MAC with XP running underneath it. I tried it on WIN7 using parallel, under a MAC OS. However I have read aboutr problems with that. I only tried reading a module not writing, so I stick with my XP Netbook which I use for the car diagnostics and internet access when I travel)

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...
