Guys, I'm new to the forum and hope to become a regular here. I posted this on another forum and was told I should share it over here as well. I've been developing software for BMWs for a while now and I'm finally making some fun applications available to you guys, the enthusiasts. In doing so I've made some FREE options available to everyone, covering a very wide range of BMW vehicles.
These free features currently include:
Check Prominent and Shadow DME Codes.
Clear DME Codes.
Clear All DME Adaptations.
Register A New Battery With IBS, as easy as choosing Register New Battery in the special menu.
No INPA/EDIABAS/DIS required, it's a standalone application. This works on Windows XP and newer or Mac OS X 10.5 and newer. All you need is a supported FTDI based USB K-Line for Pre-03/2007 MY or K+DCAN cable for Post-03/2007 MY, and you're good to go. Check out the tutorial video to see how to setup the software to use your cable. Enjoy!
Here's a link to the version that supports E90/1/2/3
To register your battery
Make sure you have IBS on your battery.
Make sure the vehicle is off.
Put the key in.
Press start with the foot off the brake, so the engine does not start.
Choose to register your battery in the software.
To clear adaptations
Turn the vehicle off.
Insert the key and push START without starting the engine.
If you clear adaptations
and your next startup is extremely rough or has a surging idle follow these steps:
1. Never touch the brake pedal & leave the key inserted the entire time
2. Insert key and push START Button
3. Press and HOLD accelerator pedal for 30 seconds.
4. WITHOUT RELEASING THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL, push the START Button (remember without touching the brake, so the car doesn't really start yet.)
5. Release accelerator pedal
6. Wait 30 seconds
7. Start car normally
If you have questions about the free features I'd be happy to respond here... If you have other questions please use email as this is not a commercial post.
