Marathon Coding Session

Ran my first marathon today - but it was an E91 Coding Marathon spent parked in my driveway, sitting in my driver's seat with a laptop. This was my first coding attempt since finally getting a cable that worked. Every time I clicked "Execute Job," I held my breath... but everything went well.

MIRROR FOLD VIA FOB LOCK/UNLOCK didn't work. I will try that again next time. Tried CAS > KOMFORTSCHLIESSUNG_FB > aktiv + NFRM > SPIEGEL_KOMFORT_EINKLAPP > nicht_aktiv [but it already WAS nicht aktiv??]

And AE "full bright / full time" didn't seem to make any difference, but I read someone said it doesn't work on a pre-LCI anyway. I also don't seem to have an "LMA" module and no module that I DO have, includes the entry "PWM_AN_SL_V_AL_1_34" to try that either.

On my 2008 pre-LCI E91 I successfully coded the following today:
(one at a time... over a period of a couple hours, including backing up EVERY module I have)
  • Digital Speed (KOMBI > BC_DIGITAL_V > aktiv)
  • Driver Seatbelt Gong Disable (ABG > SBR_FAHRER_1 > nicht_aktiv)
  • Passenger Seatbelt Gong Disable (ABG > SBR_BEIFAHRER_2_CD > nicht_aktiv)
  • Unlock doors on key eject/power off (CAS > ER_KEYOUT_AUTOVR > aktiv + CAS > KOMFORT_EJECT > aktiv) [note: I have CA]
  • AE as DRL (NFRM > VERHALTEN_DRL_TFL > drl_s)
  • AE full bright full time (didn't work) tried: (NFRM > PWM_RL_BL_1_FKT_BL >wert_01 + wert_01)
  • Correct digital speedo (made no difference) (KOMBI > BC_V_KORREKTUR > nicht_aktiv)
  • Fogs allowed with High Beams (NFRM > FL_UND_NSW_NICHT_GLEICHZ > nicht_aktiv) [note: Fogs w flash is seperate, and I left mine unchanged]
  • Fogs with Welcome + Fade (NFRM > WL_NSW > soft_einschalten)
  • Hazard Double Blink (NFRM > DOPPELBLINKIMPULS_CRASH > aktiv + DOPPELBLINKIMPULS_WARNBLK > aktiv)
  • Wipers finish their job (2JBBF > ZYCLUS_VOLLEND_KLR_AUS > aktiv)

Kudos to e90post/coding forum, Junior's NCS DIY which helped me through the first one, and "bmw coding dot com" (user: morello... or something I think, sorry) for their lists and posted tips I also referred to. I think I've got it now, and I'm hooked, hungry for more! Next thing to learn is VO coding.

Pleased with the results.

SAFETY TIP:
** Plug your laptop into a power source when coding. DO NOT rely on your laptop battery!

** Turn your headlights off. Ha. I left my HID's on "Auto" (didn't notice they were on as the sun went down) until the car complained the battery was running low.

You make this script value to aktiv to make it work! lol It is default nicht_aktiv which make it not work with the fob.

lol. Ok thanks!
The list I had said to MAKE it nicht, but then I found it was ALREADY nicht... which I thought that was a little odd, but didn't bother screwing with it. Ha.

Question regarding step 53:

Are you always selecting CAS, even if you want to code to the FRM(NFRM) module (ie. for lights?).

Select cas when doing the zcs after selecting chassis. After when clicking process ecu, pick the computer you want to read. I think you are just selecting which computer (that has the vin inside) you want to get the vin from

As a novice, I didn't know half of those things were even possible!

There are a couple of coding lists out there (BMW_E9x_Code_List_v1edit and BMW E Series Coding) - Excel spreadsheets - with dozens of things you can code, the ones I did are just the ones which caught my eye! Mostly just codes for customizing for fun and personal choice - unfortunately no codes for more practical things like "be_more_fuel_efficient" or "rub_my_belly_when_i'm_tired" however.

For what these cars cost, they better have a belly rub feature, or I'm going to be really disappointed!
