How to Reset BMW E90 Battery with INPA in 3 ways

I have been interpreting the text in E90 clubs in Japan.

The battery reset is said to be in the inpa … (There are 3 different methods of vehicle,

Battery (IBS) reset can be done withBMW INPA K+DCAN cable.


1. First Method

1 Select your car model

2 Select your engine type (MS or MSV in front of the engine type)

3 Select Status (F5)

4 Select PM-IBS (F5)

5 Click B Exchange (F5)

6 Popup (OK) should appear if job is done.

2. The second method

Step 1: select BODY from the left hand pop-up menu

Step 2: select POWER MODULE in the right hand list

Step 3: select ACTIVATE from the next menu

Step 4: Select ACTIVATE2 from the next menu

Step 5: Then select F7 – Register battery replacement. Almost instantly you get the message: "Register battery replacement Activated properly.”

3. The third method

In that case you open up Toolset 32 ​​(under EDIABAS folder):

1. Open MSD80.prg

2. Look up steuern_batterietausch_registri. (near bottom of job list)

3. Go to Jobs menu

4. Select Run Job

Use ncs expert to change the ampere to 70ah -> 90ah in the CAS module.

Battery reset is available only inINPA.

After clicking STATUS button, click PM-IBS second state B, and press amperage and battery old

You can see the current charge.

Press B change to change the battery and press reset to reset the IBS intelligent battery system.

If you look at status B, the old status is changed to 0 and the battery run is reset.

I have not tried it yet … You can try it yourself.

Guide to Add Parameters to Ncs Dummy

In order to code the DMB driving lock in the E series, I added the parameters and modified the data value to FF, so I added the parameters many times, so I applied the additional method.

When replacing a battery with an amp that is higher than the original amp, sometimes I need to add a parameter to set the proper ampere .... I do not have to .... But, I want to ....

I can not see the 100 amperes parameter in BMW coding softwareNCS Dummy.

first

If you search for KLASSE_BATTERIE to set the battery

(First picture) KLASSE_BATTERIE - Select BATTERY TYPE, right click on it and select Add parameter to modify the added parameters .... (second, third picture)

Edit the data (fourth picture) .... The modification here seems to be the menu order. 01, 02, 03, ....... 09,0A.0B, 0C.0D, ......

In the DMB lock, I modified the setting value to FF ..... It seems that the order is not so important here. So it makes sense that some people do not need to set it up.

I think the battery should be reset.

Finally (in the fifth figure), press the Module Functions button to select the Update Module.

When you start to update the module, you will be notified that you can not revert anymore.

Now go back and load the modified module and you will see the modified 100 amperes.

I have added two parameters: 100 amps in general and 100 amps in AGM batteries.

Diagnostic Yes Yes Yes
Coding Yes Yes Yes
Programming No Yes Yes


In summary,

It depends on your purpose (diagnostic or coding or programming) and model (Exx or Fxx or others).

 

For Coding, you need differentTools,NCS Expert / SP-Daten for E-Series and E-Sys / PSdZData for F-Series.

All Diagnosis and Coding can be done with cheap DCANCablefor E-Series and cheap ENET Cable for F-Series.

 

For Programming(Flashing ECU’s with new Firmware), then you need ISTA/P for for both E-Series and F-Seriescars, or you can use WinKFP for E-Series and E-Sys for F-Series.For E-Series Programming, you will need anICOM, but for F-Series Programming, you can use ENET Cable.

 

ForExx- Series:

Interface =K+DCAN Cable(OBDII to USB) or ICOM

ECU Data Files = SP-Daten

NCS Expert = Coding Software

WinKFP = Programming (Flashing) Software

EDIABAS = Low-Level ECU Communication Software used by NCS Expert & WinKFP

 

ForFxx- / Ixx- / Gxx-Series, Mini, & Rolls-Royce:

Interface =ENET Cable(OBDII to RJ45 Ethernet) or ICOM

ECU Data Files = PSdZData

E-Sys = Coding Software

E-Sys = Programming (Flashing) Software

 

About:BMWICOM

ICOM A(alsoICOM A2,ICOM A3,ICOM Next A): main interface

ICOM B: adapter for programming multimedia in E series

ICOM C: adapter for old BMW with round 20 pin diagnostic plug

ICOM D: adapter for motorcycles

ISTA+ (AKA Rheingold or ISTA-D)

DIAGNOSTICS for All Vehicles

PROGRAMMING for F/I/G/RR & MINI, butrequiresan ICOM

ISTA-P

PROGRAMMING traditionally for all chassis, but is being phased out by August 2017, except for legacy E-series.

Replacement ECU’s must beNEW

 

YOU HAVE TO KNOW before you buy ICOM A2 or ICOM A3 or ICOM Next:

 

BMW ICOM NEXTvs the old ICOM

->muchfaster inBMWF and G series ..

->supports gigabit Ethernet too to be future proof, there currently is not gigabit Ethernet protocol defined yet for autos. Also it has USB3.0 instead of USB2.0 and a better wifi card.

 

ICOM NEXT A vs ICOM A2

-> more stable during programming

-> be necessary for the future Gbit cars

-> faster start-up times and high throughput

-> through high-performance,low-power ARM SoC

-> improved handling

-> more flexible OBD cable

-> lighted button for logs

 

ICOM A vs ICOM A2 vs ICOM A3

Modified ICOM A2 for vehicles with OBD access receives a significantly more powerful processor and more storage capacity. And robust aluminium case will help to avoid damage when using in harsh environments. It works better in cooling, runs faster and works more stable, not easier broken than older ICOM A.

ICOM A3 can program all units for all BMW series expect media system, and work more stable and has stronger compatibility than ICOM A2, A1.

BMW DME/DDE module initialization problem solved

Here is the expert solution to BMWDME/DDE module initialization problem

 

(Note: The document was translated from Korean. Credits to Mr.JIHUNX)

Background:

TheDME(Digital Motor Electronics module of theBMW automobile isa very important module that controls the main operation of the engine (Diesel vehicles include DDE and Digital Diesel Electronics modules).Unlike other modules, the DME / DME2 / DDE module must be coded with the power turned on (ACC On) without coding while the power is turned on at the time of coding.If theinitialization is done by pressing the button with theignition onCode,or the coding is done, the DME module will be blown and various warning lights willappear.Most of the beginner coders initializeECUs it, and after selectingall,Code it seems that these problems are caused by pressing.CodeIf you need to initialize by pressingCode, select the individual module and press to initialize it for each individual module.

bmw-DME-module-initialization-1

If the DME module is blown, the starting will be turned off while coding, and if you try to start, there will be a phenomenon that the driving device error will not start.Then, various warning lights are turned on as shown in the figure below.

bmw-DME-module-initialization-2

Solution

By default, the preparation process is the same as theBMW ENET E-syssoftware coding procedure.I am going to tell you about the theory, not the actual experience.Please note that the names and numbers of the coding files are different because they are synthesized by combining all screenshots.

  1. Read SVT (VCM) Activate FA (VO) => Read SVT (VCM)),then proceed to the process(ACC ON state).
  2. SVT With theDME module selectedin the area,Detect CAT for SWE clickthebutton on theright.

How to set up BMW ICOM DHCP server on external router

I made a definitive guide of how to set up DHCP server on an external router for BMW ECU flashing withBMW ICOMdiagnostic tool.

Why is this necessary?
When flashing specific modules (KOMBI, NBT,..) on F and G series, the
ICOM switches between different IP addresses and therefore loses sync with the computer. In order to resolve this issue, there needs to be a DHCP server between the ICOM and PC, which redirects any traffic on the selected MAC address (in this case the ICOM’s MAC address) to a specified IP address.

All three connected devices (PC, ROUTER and ICOM incl.icom a1,icom a2,icom next) need to be set to DHCP.

In this tutorial, I used an old D-Link DIR-300 router. You can use any router that supports setting its’ netmask to 255.255.0.0 and has the capability for DHCP server.

Step-by-step instructions:

Before this, you need to turn off your Windows Firewall !

Step1:Configure your PC to DHCP

Go to Control Panel > Network Connections > Ethernet>Properties
control-panel
 
Select: Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and click Properties.
Both tabs need to be as follows:
internet-protocol
 
When you now connect something with LAN cable, your Ethernet card under Control Panel > Network Connections > Ethernet>Details should now show DHCP Enabled Yes.
show-dhcp-enabled
 
Step 2: Configure your ICOM to DHCP

Connect your ICOM to the car’s OBD2 port, wait for it to power on and connect it to your PC via LAN cable. Wait a minute or two to be recognized by the PC.
In iToolRadar or Dr. Gini take a look at your ICOM’s assigned IP address. Copy it into your web browser (I use Google Chrome) and at the end add :60080 (this is the port fort the settings).

Example: http://169.254.97.140:60080/
You will then be asked for a Login username and password.
Username: root Password: NZY11502
enter-user-name-and-password
 
Under LAN settings make sure your ICOM is set to DHCP. Make a note of the ICOM’s subnet mask.

Step 3: Configure your router for DHCP server.

Disconnect ICOM, power up your router and connect it to your PC via LAN cable. Use the router’s LAN ports.
Open Command Prompt (CMD) and type in ipconfig.
You will see a list of your Connection Cards configurations. Under LAN you will see your router’s IP addresses. Copy the Default gateway IP address into your internet browser. This time you do not add any port number at the end. P.S.: If there is no Default gateway listed, make a hard reset of your router with its’ physical reset button.
Type in the username and password of your router. The default username is usually admin and the password is either nothing/blank or also admin.
Now go under advanced and turn off your router’s firewall. In my case it is under ADVANCED>Firewall&DMZ. Disable SPI, save settings.
Then go to LAN settings and assign 192.168.0.1 with subnet mask
255.255.0.0 to your router.

Important: The subnet mask of the router needs to match ICOM’s subnet mask. Enable DHCP server.
Set the pool to be between 100 and 199.
Save settings and reboot your router.
The DHCP Client list should now be populated with your PC’s address. If not, physically power off and on your router (maybe also PC), then check again.

Settings should look like this:
dhcp-client
router-settings
 
 
And your PC listed under DHCP client List.

Step 4: Connect everything together

Power off your router, disconnect it from your PC, disconnect your ICOM from the car and LAN. No device should be connected via LAN to anything at this point and both router as well as ICOM should be powered off.

Follow this exact order:
 Power on your router. Wait 2 min for it to fully boot up.
 Connect ICOM to the car’s OBD2 port and wait for it to fully boot up.  Connect ICOM to the router via LAN cable. Use the LAN ports on the router (port number does not matter). Wait a minute or two.
 Connect your PC to the router via LAN cable. Use the LAN ports on the router (port number does not matter). Wait for the PC to recognize the router.
 In web browser connect to your router’s settings menu as described in step 3. Take a look at the DHCP Client list under LAN settings. Your ICOM and PC should be listed.
 Open iToolRadar or Dr. Gini and you should see your ICOM listed with an IP address of 192.168.0.x, where x is a number between 100 and 199.

This is it. You can now openISTA/Dand run a vehicle test with yourBMW ICOM. If ISTA/D recognizes your vehicle fully, you are all set. If not, there is a problem and you should not attempt to flash anything.


Good reference may help you out:

bmw f series coding tool:

For coding only:BMW ENET cableis ok

There are basically two ways to get the ENET cable. You can buy a complete cable, or you can simply build one.

DIY an ENET cable BMW with the help of the how-to’s (Google "DIY enet cable”; it’s easy to find guides you wan)- it’s a piece of cake for you if you’re equipped with technique. You can have a try and then decide to whether buy a complete one.

Don’t spend too much on it- that is, just buy a cheap knock-off online:
http://www.obdii365.com/wholesale/bmw-enet-interface-cable-e-sys-icom-without-cd.html

I wouldn't recommend other sites, although they may work, problem is that they have not been confirmed working yet.



For coding & programming: you must have a BMW ICOM emulator (ICOM A2orICOM Next). Also, if you have a new BMW or wanna use the tool for future cars, you should have bmw icom.

f30 coding manual:

The steps of BMW F series ECU flash.... Just remember to identify the dependencies and select appropriately in step 15 in the below procedure.



When flashing involves ZGW it is widely said that the ZGW module should be updated BEFORE other

modules. The TAL (transaction list) generated by E-Sys should take care of this. But if you want, you could

flash the ZGW all by itself and then restart and do the rest. The steps remain the same.

Flashing all modules at once is also as easy as flashing individual modules. Just select all the modules in step

15 (still blFlash, swDeploy, cdDeploy, and ibaDeploy columns)



HU_CIC Depends (PreRequisites) on: 38 + 14 (BOTH ZGW)

KOMBI Depends on: 38 + 10 + 14 + 53 + 57 (ZGW + HU_CIC + ZGW + CMB_MEDIA + HU_CIC)

CMB_MEDIA Depends on: 57 (HU_CIC)

ZGW does not have dependencies.



How to identify dependencies inE-SYS interface:

Open TAL IN TAL Editor, and it will show you under ECU (TalLine_ID) if it has any PreRequisite ECU (TalLine_ID's).

As you can see here, TalLine_ID=13 (Kombi) has a PreRequisite of TalLine_ID=11 (HU_CHAMP):





HU_CIC:
hu-cic
KOMBI:
kombi
CMB_MEDIA:
CMB_MEDIA

ZGW:
ZGW

Here are the basic steps:

Go to Comfort Mode => TAL-Calculating
- Read and Save FA
- Activate FA
- Read and Save SVT Actual as SVT_ist
- Create an SVT Target
Under KIS/SVT Target Calculation Strategy, select Complete Flash
Select I-Step (shipm.) to match your original I-Level as read and shown in VCM I-Step (Shipment)
I-Step (target.) will be unselectable as it is fixed based on current PSdZData I-Level
Do a KIS/SVT Target Calculation and Save as SVT_soll
- Do a TAL Calculation and Save as SVT_tal

Go to Expert Mode => TAL-Processing
Load TAL (SVT_tal)
Load SVT Target (SVT_soll)
Select "Read FA" button.
Check radio button for "read VIN out of FA"
On ECU Tab, uncheck let top box in column "All" (All checked boxes should toggle to unchecked)
On ID Base Row for Kombi, make check boxes in blFlash, swDeploy, cdDeploy, and ibaDeploy columns.
Press Check software availability
Press Start and it will proceed with processing TAL to flash Kombi with new firmware.



Please go on your reading for details.



1. Connect external charger (at least 50AMPs, preferably 70AMPs) to the car battery. Connect laptop to power supply. This step is essential!

2. Turn lamp switch to parking light – this will keep the ignition on beyond 20 minutes.

Turn light switch to Parking Lamp On - first position/stop to the right.



Please refer to Appendix B for further info regarding the light switch and the 20

minutes.

3. Connect via "Connection via Gateway URL”

In the Connection window, select the 'Connection via gateway URL' instead of via VIN, and use the car's IP address with the default port number 6801.
Passed with flying colors



(else flashing ZGW will fail)

4. Select Comfort Mode TAL Calculating
comfort-mode

5. Read and save FA
read-fa

6. Activate FA

iv. Integration Steps boxes above will be populated with the data. Note down the IStep

(Shipment).
data

c. I-Step (target.) will be unselectable as it is fixed based on current PSdZData I-Level. Select

the appropriate level in I-Step (shipm.) as obtained in step above
PSdZData

d. Do a KIS/SVT Target Calculation and Save as "SVT_soll”
kis-svt

e. Do a TAL Calculation and Save as "SVT_tal”
tal-calculation

9. Go to Expert Mode TAL-Processing
expert-mode

10. Load TAL [SVT_tal) created in step 8.e
load-tal
11. Load SVT Target ("SVT_soll”) created in step 8.d
load-svt

12. Click the "Read FA” button
read-fa
this will result in the FA_aus_VCM.xml file:
fa-aus-vcm
13. Check radio button for "read VIN out of FA" and click the "Read VIN” button
read-vin-out-of-fa
14. On ECU Tab, uncheck let top box in column "All" (All checked boxes should toggle to unchecked)
uncheck-all
15. On ID Base Row for HU_CIC, CMB_MEDIA, KOMBI and ZGW check the boxes in blFlash, swDeploy,

cdDeploy, and ibaDeploy (please see Appendix C) columns.
Appendix-C
16. Press Check software availability (this, among other, ensures that you have the correct PSdZdata

and the FULL version of them)
check-software

17. Press Start and it will proceed with processing TAL to flash Kombi with new firmware
click-start-tab

18. Cross your fingers and watch it work

BMW ICOMISTA-D 4.07.13FAQs:

 

Q:I tried it out, and it works fine. But after deleting some error codes, it froze, but after I restarted the program, the codes were erased, is there any specific reason why that happened?

 

A:If you are using aINPA k+Dcaninterface, you might need a Voltage Control tool in order to properly close the operation.
If not, you might have some issues with your local installation and/or software environment and/or prerequisites needed for ISTA D.

 

 

Q:my question was: is fw-03-15-02 an officially update for icom? Or is here something modded, like "03-15-00-unprotected” or so? Because there is only one file different to 03-15-00. In the past there was always two different files.

 

A:Official.

 

 

Q:Does anyone have License for ISPI Admin Client 5.1.6.181?

 

A:Check here:

https://mega.nz/#!NNZEhSAZ!EL142xuK8Hnaq_QFXuXbVleGt5Is-QO4mMUQELXUaMc

New Firmware for Icom Next

https://mega.nz/#!vopC3IAI!MfacbUE8DR-q192YpyahvlrThH5FFLsjqpzHSJFT-Bk

For people who want to use the web interface instead.

 

 

Q:I just wanna ask about the difference between the ISTA\D or P , ISTA+ and ISPI_ISTA ?? because I have a BMW E60 535XI 2008 and I wanna choose the best option for my car to diagnose or program , and also can I use that program with a K-DCAN OBD II cable which is the same I use for coding or I need to use another one ?

 

A:ISTA/D is for diagnostics of all BMW’s, Mini, and RR. It can only program Fxx/Ixx/Gxx-series BMW.

For E-series, you can use K+DCAN USB cable with ISTA+ for diagnostics, but you need ICOM and ISTA-P or Winkfp for programming.

 

 

Q:can’t I for examle update my ECU with sp-daten files using K+DCAN cable using Winkfp ? since it can be done using the same method but with another adapter like "iCarly’ ? I mean why acn’t I program using K+DCAN cable with ISTA P since ICOM is more expensive

 

A:Carly is a bluetooth device. K+DCAN cable will not work for two reasons; it cannot communicate over "most” interface (multimedia ECU’s) and would potentially take days to program with higher rate of likely failure. AnBMW ICOM A2emulator is less expensive than replacing an ECU.

 

 

Q:Now can you please guide me on what and where to buy a good quality of ICOM as I read that ICOM A+B+C is good but I really don’t know how much does it cost and from where to buy it since I saw some on AliExpress but I don’t trust Chinese quality.

 

A:

ICOM A: main interface
ICOM B: adapter for programming multimedia in E series
ICOM C: adapter for old BMW with round 20 pin diagnostic plug
ICOM D: adapter for motorcycles

You can purchase directly from dealerships; though not sure they are still selling A2’s. If you read the ISTA-P release notes, you will see that next does not always work for E-series. Or, have a try ICOM here:http://www.obdii365.com/wholesale/Icom-a-module-bmw-icom-diagnostic-tool.htmlso far, this HQ ICOM worked no issues for years. Bought when they are obd365.com

 

 

Q:I’m trying to update SDP but from all files only German language was updated.

I’m doing that all the time but now I have problem and I can solve myself.

What I’m doing wrong?

 

A:It does not look like anything is updated. You must have xml’s and istapackage for it to work.

 

 

Q:I have now installed and changed old ISTA with new 4.07 but now ISTA says that data are incompatible?

 

A:It is normal, you only update databases, you have not updated ISTA APP
Current ISTA version should be the same as thread title after you apply Reg fix included with standalone.

just install new ISTA and solved
