[SOLVED] Is it possible to code rear turn signals as welcome lights?

I have a 2007 E92 with a production date of 04/2007. I have been trying to code the rear turn signals on as welcome lights WL_BLK_H but I've always run into an error writing the NFRM module back to the car.

I could have sworn I was able to code this before. Everything else in the NFRM I have been able to code as I just recently coded the LCI Taillight retrofit.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

UPDATE SOLVED: WARNING I WAS COMFORTABLE ENOUGH TO DO THIS TO MY CAR.

Quote:
So I was able to program WL_BLK_H finally. I had to use NCS Dummy to disassemble the FRM2_E89.C09 module file. I then opened the disassembled text file FRM2_E89.C09.txt and looked for WL_BLK_H. Here is the before and after the added values are in red:

BEFORE:

PARZUWEISUNG_FSW : {00003405} 0000000B 0001 0E52 {} (C0) {h} {} // WL_BLK_H
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 0009 (00) // nicht_aktiv

AFTER:

PARZUWEISUNG_FSW : {00003405} 0000000B 0001 0E52 {} (C0) {h} {} // WL_BLK_H
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 0009 (00) // nicht_aktiv
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 0492 (01) // soft_einschalten
PARZUWEISUNG_PSW1 : 0493 (02) // hart_einschalten


After changing the disassembled text file. I made sure to save a copy of the original FRM2_E89.C09. I then used NCS Dummy to browse for the disassembled text file for assembly and saved. I then copied the changed FRM2_E89.C09 into the location in the NCSEXPER\DATEN\E89

I then proceeded to code the NFRM module and changed the WL_BLK_H to either soft_einschalten or hart_einschalten. NOTE: It did not seem to matter if I set it to soft or hart. The rear blinkers will just turn on to full.

Did you set it to aktiv? If so that's not an option. WL values are defined as nicht_aktiv, soft_en**** (sp?), or hart_en****.

(FRM 3 uses wert values as well).

Copy another WL line value and use that.

I have FRM 2. I have tried soft_en*** and hart_en*** and I get errors for both. I have looked on NCSDummy and the only value listed on there is nicht_aktiv. But according to the shared Excel file, that value works on 2007 model cars.

Have you ever tried coding this value Grant?

Not on my own 2007. I also have FRM2.
I can take a look the next time I get a sec.

Alright cool. But are you saying that you have coded the value on other E9x?

No. For welcome lights it's usually adding in front and rear fogs.
Never had the request personally.

I'm wondering if it is possible to just disassemble the module using NCS Dummy and add soft_xxxx and hart_xxxx as additional values; reassemble the module; then try to code it? Sounds like it could end up bad though.

Ummm... interesting.

Thanks for posting. I wonder if this same logic can be applied to other features.

That's what I was wondering as well, but I don't know what would happen if the module isn't able to take the value. I just happened to take the leap and just try it. It's been 2 weeks and so far my taillights have been working. And no issues.

If someone could chime in if this could cause issues; please do so and I'll recode mine back. But so far I've had no issues.
