anyway on to the issue, i followed the setup on the first few pages. inpa works somewhat, i can few the engine live data and stuff, though thats the only module that works, the airbag test fails. ncs fails every time with a coapi-2020 error. any ideas? depsite that i'm afraid i'll have to buy another cable. thanks oh car is a 2003 M3, so little older then most in this thread. may have something to do with it?
Try using the latest daten files EXCEPT the files in the ECU folder. I've found that some modules on my car are only readable when using the ECU folder from the most recent daten, and some are only readable when using the original ECU folder that came with the NCS Expert package I downloaded.
