Hi guys,

So I just received my cable this morning. Kinda excited to using it to program some things for my car for example folding my side view mirrors when I lock the car.

I got a really stupid question, I only had my car for 2 weeks and wondering were is the computer that I plug this in? Driver side or Passenger Side?

Is the links on the first post the ones I should use on my 2011 328xi? I have the DIY PDF and the application. Also is there a file with all the hacks that people did?

Driver side. If you sit in the driver's seat, it's roughly around where your left foot is, next to the hood release - look for a plastic cover that says "OBD" on it, remove it and the plug is there.

You may need to update your DATEN files for a 2011. As for the file - look for the spreadsheet on Google Docs in the first post, that lists all of the possible modifications.

I tried to download the PDF in the OP, but the file is no longer on RapidShare.

Also when trying to select my chassis there is no e90 listed only an e89.

Works fine for me. If you're at work try it later when you get home. My work network doesn't like Rapidshare either.

As long as you update all the files correctly, yes. That is the most recent version I believe.

Is there a good wiki I could read regarding that will help me with this instead of me reading 155 pages of threads?

NCS isn't like normal software; you can't just grab updates from somewhere. However, yes the link there is a sufficiently new version of the app, all you might need to do is update your daten. The modules to select are covered between the DIY and the coding spreadsheet, but basically always select CAS as the master ECU and then after clicking Process ECU, select whatever module has the value you wish to code.

hi,

I received my cable yesterday after waiting for 3 weeks. I did some reading and downloaded what I think is needed. I have the NCS DIY pdf file, NCSEXPER.rar which contains 3 folders, INPA, EDIABAS, and NCSEXPER.

I unzipped them to the C:drive as per the instructions in the NCS_DIY pdf file, followed the instructions until i got to step number "9". Currently i dont have a "COM1" when I look into the device manager after I plugged in the cable I got "K+DCAN" and went through the "Found New Hardware".....I have COM6 though is that an issue I mean I can change it to "COM1" through the properties COM1 on my PC is not in use anyway. I just want to know if it matters if it is COM1 or COM6 or COM##. I presume there might be a *.ini file maybe hardcoded with COM=1 and I might have problems????

Also step 9b in the NCS_DIY pdf file says ensure to use fifo uffer option, where is that I cant find it anywhere

On the other hand under the advanced settings of the COM6 I changed Latency Time to 1msec under BM Options instead of the default option 16msec

Also I got an adpater with my K DCAN USB interface cable.....do I need to use it or is it for older model. I have a 2009 335ix (E92)

Thank you in advance

Use the device manager advanced settings to change it to com1. it matters.
Forget about the fifo buffer. Just make sure your Latency is 1

Thanks for the quick response. I actually went ahead and changed it to COM1 and already did the latency time to 1ms.

Another question, I got an adpater with my K DCAN USB interface cable.....do I need to use it or is it for older model. I have a 2009 335ix (E92)

I plugged the cable into the OBD without the adapter and put the key in and pushed the start/stop button of course without starting the car.
I opened INPALOAD....I had black circles one for battery and the other for ignition (I guess thats good).

So there is no E92 (09 335ix coupe) for me to choose my chassis what do I do?

Thank you

Choose E89. The E90 family is within the E89 umbrella.

There is no E89 to choose.

I was referring to the INPALOAD, I can only chose E87, E46, E60, E65, E85, E83, E53, E90 and END..

I am trying to follow the instructions on NCS_DIY.pdf.

Step 14, calls for "Select your chassis" and I dont see E92, in the instructions E90 was chosen followed by selecting Karosserie, airbag, etc...

What if I ignore setp 14 and jump to step 17

Thank you

Thanks for all the responses I been recieving so far. So I opened INPALOAD and chose E90 (F9). I then chose Karosserie just as the instructions calls for. I chose "Airbag". I pressed the F5 on my keyboard nothing happens. So I went ahead and double clicked on "Airbag" and I get the below message.



Variant Checking
Group File: D_Sim
SYS 0012- Identification Error
Program will be stopped

I dont know what am I doing wrong. I am following the instructions and I believe I got the right cable (I think so).

So what do I do now?
