I can live with that. Should I back out all of the changes I made to the LMA module? They didn't seem to impact anything.Correct. You will have to live without cornering lights unless you want to venture into the retrofit described.
That's what I thought as well, but mine didn't have quite a lot of different things enabled that normal EU version would have (welcome lights being one of them)...secik, usually a euro model has cornering lights standard, as I understand it. If that's not correct, post your LM2 trc file ( the last read). And what us your model year?
I will look at it once the US holiday weekend is over and I'm back home (Wednesday)
Credit for this DIY goes to member JAFF who figured this out when I became stumped. Using both nettodat and NCS settings, Jaff triumphed!
Thank you on behalf of all the other Board members. Great work and excellent intuitive coding.
This is for E63/E64 models.
So what are cornering lights? In EU models, while turning the steering when the headlights are on, either the Fog Light or Inner lights (brights/OEM AE's), will illuminate at full brilliance on the side of the car in conjunction with the direction of turn, thereby lighting up the road. The changes below will allow these cornering lights to remain on for the duration of time that the wheels are turned.
- Light switch in auto position
- Dark enough that headlights are on (you can block the light sensor behind rear view mirror to test)
- Steering wheel turned left or right
- Directionals do not need to be on
- Additional; while reversing and wheels turned, cornering lights enabled
- All speeds (including stationary), other than within 65-70km/hr (40-43 mph), cornering lights will be enabled
This can be modified to require directionals on, reverse gear enable/disable, speed changes to accommodate when you want them to illuminate and when you don't.
The settings below refer to the conditions above
1. Using NCSExpert, read your LM (light module) in the usual way (File size should be approximately 34kb, not 192kb). The 192 kb is the LM partition that holds the VO codes. Read it twice to insure your c:/ncsexper/work/fsw_psw.trc file is approximatley 34kb.
It should start with;
2. Modify that file as follows:
V_E_LO_KRV (Cornering lights minimum switch off speed in curves)
V_E_HI_KRV (Cornering lights maximum switch off speed in curves)
EINLENKEN_RKW (Cornering lights in reverse only when turning)
ENTGEGENGES_RKW (Cornering lights in both directions when reversing and turning)
PWM_FL_NSW_FKT_ABBLIEGELI (Pulse width modulation control of cornering lights-voltage setting)
ALC_SCHWENK_BEI_S_FLC (Cornering ligts enabled with light switch set to automatic)
DEF_ABBIEGELICHT_CKM (Default car/key memory for cornering- turns on the fact that any fob you use will enable the cornering lights)
UNP_ABBIEGELICHT_CKM (Unpersonalized car/key memory for cornering lights (for use with key fob as well-necessary with above line)
ABBIEGELICHT_CKM_0 (car/key memory 1 for cornering lights-enables first fob that is registered with CAS-necessary)
ABBIEGELICHT_CKM_1 (same as above for fob #2)
ABBIEGELICHT_CKM_2 (same as above for fob #3)
ABBIEGELICHT_CKM_3 (same as above for fob #4)
3. Save the file in the usual manner; save as FSW_PSW.MAN (all files). Yes to overwrite
4. Write that new .MAN file in the usual manner to the LMA module
5. Car off; car on, test new cornering lights
I am going to upgrade the H7 high beams (pre-LCI) bulbs to the picture below, so they are as white and bright as my AE's and LED strip AE's
Enjoy everyone, and again cudos to Member JAFF for uncovering this excellent lighting mod.
Thanks Mr. Jaff!
What ECU's did you code to get your cornering lights functioning on the E91? Do you have the LM module, or NRFM like I do in my E90. I have played around with the coding, but have been unable to get inner headlights or fog lights to work on cornering. I have the option Cornering Lights in my i-drive screen, but they are not working. They do work on pulling back the stalk as flash to pass. I am in Australia.Hi,
I have E91 LCI bixenon AHL (cornering light are in the inner headlight using H3 bulb).
I would replace H3 bulb with led light, so I need to disable canbus check.
Anyone can confirm it's sufficient do it:
KALTUE_FL_M2_6_M1_04 - COLD MONITORING OF HIGH BEAMS
canbus check of cornering light is related to high beam? or to angel eyes?
