And idea what line in the TRC file? Was it PWM_?

Dude I already told you, instead of wasting time just come over and I'll bang it out for you. You're 15-20 minutes from me.

You were right.

PWM_SL_1_FKT_BL_TFL is altered by 0B, 05 in line 21.
PWM_SL_1_FKT_PARKL is altered by 06, 21 in line 21.


Code:
B 00340600,0010,04,7C,06,21,0B,05,06,21,1F,FF,1F,FF,1F,FF,0B,8E
I changed 0B, 05 to D7, 0A (12.2 volts) and no change in brightness. Should the 06, 21 be changed to the same value? The only reason I didn't is because according to the PDF which explains how to convert the voltage to the hex, 06, 21 = 1.xx volts (doesn't sound right), whereas 0B, 05 refers to 5.xx volts.

Sorry for being annoying I am just trying to understand how it works.

In my car (2009 E90) the AE brightness when headlights on was PWM_RL_BL_1_FKT_SL

No idea where about this value is in FRM3, shouldn't be too hard to find it.
Can you please tell us which value it is for the welcome light length and welcome light AE brightness?
I got it. It's WL_DAUER and brightness equals the settings of parking light brightness.

Any idea what FKT or TFL means?
I don't know exactly what the difference between 1 and 2 is but sincle I am from germany I can help you translate the cryptic letters.

BL = Braking Lights ("Bremslicht") (these often are AE undimmed - so the abbreviation in fact is misleading
SL = most likely parking light ("Standlicht") (AE dimmed)
FKT = most likely refers to the FUNKTION DE or FUNCTION ENG as which the light is being used. E.g.: NSL_FKT_SL is the fog lights when being used as parking light.
TFL = daytime running light (AE bright)


In germany we differ between Parklicht (PARKL) and Standlicht (SL). Both is to be used when the vehicle is stationary in germany. The Parklicht in fact is the Standlicht when only activated either on the left or the right side of the vehicle. Technically, as you know, it looks the same except that one side is dark

I write the german translations in just to complete this.
AL = low beams (Abblendlicht)
FL = high beams (Fernlicht)
WL = welcome lights (Welcome Light, no german here)
SL = parking lights (Difference between 1 and 2 is front and back) Standlicht in GER
NSW = fog lights (Nebelscheinwerfer)
POL = corner led (pretty sure)
KZL = license plate LED Kennzeichenleuchte
FRA = ambient light? could be "Fu▀raumausleuchtung" - ambient light in the inside on the ground where your feet are
TFL = daytime running lights Tagfahrlicht
NSL = rear fog lights Nebelschlussleuchte

Is this the brightness settings for the AE when using as DRL (PWM_SL_1_FKT_BL_TFL) and when using parking light (PWM_SL_1_FKT_PARKL)?

Normally it's 'Bremslicht' oder 'Bremsleuchten', this is the only case where it differs (das war zumindest immer meine Meinung...)

Bremsleuchten = breaking lights

I found out how to change brightness on my 2011 E91, with a NFRM / FRM3_E89.C32

i coded:

Code:
PWM_SL_1_FKT_BL_TFL
 => changed from 0A,D7 to 0C,2C
PWM_SL_1_FKT_SL_TFL
 => changed from 06,38 to 0C,2C
sometimes you have to switch the bytes in order to get it working porperly. Just watch at the layout of the bytes first.

Hint: It's much easier to change the values with NCSDummy instead of coding/reading/recoding them to the car.

Thanks to onebadmofo, I googled around to solve this problem for me and found this topic. Usually I am on ********* forum.

ciao,

Andreas

Yep, I think you are right.
When coding HEX values to change voltage I am pretty sure it should be xx,1x for percentage of maximum (relative) and xx,0x for voltage values (absolute) in the NETTODAT file. I never heard of anything different.

In NETTODAT it reads for example 8D,0C
The first character of the second byte (=0) indicates this value is written in voltage rather than in percentage.
To decode the voltage simply put the second character of the second byte (=C) in front of the first byte and calculate

Ueff * 4095 digits / 18V = [C8D in dez]

I think you can calculate the rest for your own.

So I guess LED dimming does not apply with LUX angel eyes? I noticed that they don't dim at all from DRL to low beams on?

Sorry to dig out this old thread.

I am going to to put what I understand and later ask 1 question.

On FRM3, these values should be changes to have 13.7V

PWM_SL_1_FKT_BL_TFL
=> changed from 0A,D7 to 0C,2C
PWM_SL_1_FKT_SL_TFL
=> changed from 06,38 to 0C,2C

On FRM2

PWM_ANSTEUERUNG_RL_BL_1
changes to OC, 2C

Now I am referring to FRM2. Since it is for BL (Braking light = undimmed AL), how do I change for SL (Parking light = dimmed)?

What string should I look for in FRM2 to change voltage of SL (Parking light = dimmed)?


Or is there any other way of coding Angle eyes to max brightness when they are on as parking lights?

Thanks.

Values with ANSTEUERUNG should be FRM3 if I am correctly.
I dont have the exact value on hand for parking light angel eye brightness in FRM2, but search for PWM_...._FKT_PARKL

I believe it was PWM_RL_BL_1_FKT_PARKL

You have to differ between the two parking lights (_SL and _PARKL)

The SL value sets the brightness for the angel eyes when low beams are on, too. This can't be edited seperately becuase parking lights always turn on when low beams are activated. No way to seperate this.

i Have got FRM3, and I have been trying for sometime now, i get the TRC file, add new values using NCS dummy OC,2C for both:
PWM_SL_1_FKT_BL_TFL & PWM_SL_1_FKT_SL_TFL

but when i try to code the car using nettodat.MAN file it doesnt work out.
1. i use revtor expert mode in NCS expert as a profile
2. i go through CAS module, then NFRM afterwards

is that right? can you review through this thread and let me know if you got any ideas
