There seems to be a lot of confusion in which cables work with which cars... and this is the only thing holding me back from getting a cable.

cable for E9X pre 07: ...?

cable for E9X post 07: ...?

Here is a copy of the post:

I was looking through my fsw_psw and saw something called welcome lights. So I enabled it and when you unlock car now you can select any light (parking, high beam, brake ) to turn on when unlocking. Its cool because the lights turn on slowly and turn off slowly when you lock and unlock the car. Now when I unlock the car my Angel Eyes, rear license plate and tail lights turn on, (great feature at night)

I had to modify the following

WELCOME_LIGHT_ACTIVE
aktiv

you also have to make

WELCOMELIGHT_CKM_0
aktiv
WELCOMELIGHT_CKM_1
aktiv
WELCOMELIGHT_CKM_2
aktiv
WELCOMELIGHT_CKM_3
aktiv

I think these are for the different keys so my wife can turn off welcome light feature and I can leave them on.

You also have to enable which light you want to turn on so for high beam I made

WL_FL
soft_einschalten

soft means come on slowly and hart means come on fast.

I'm curious if this will work with the e9x platform, I found it on e60 forum...Would be pretty cool for 06 since we don't have "Welcome Lights"

I have disabled light errors on my car because I am using a light control module that has cornering lights but my car doesn't have them.. so far i get an error every once in a while and it will go away.. should be the same concept for fog light errors.

I would go for it. It looks like the exact cable I have, I didn't think of ordering from Ebay. nice thinking

I will be meeting up with a member this monday that has 2008 so i report back if the cable only works with cars up to 2007 or if it works with others

If anyone can meet in orlando, kissimme, st. cloud whatever let me know so we can figure out this cable issue

If I understand it, this is what you need for a cable, and please correct me if I'm wrong:

pre-03/07 build: KCan cable
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-E...ht_4223wt_1360
Will also need a USB to serial connector if you are going to use a usb port on your computer if you don't have a serial port on your computer.


03/07 build and later: DCan
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/_W0QQ...#ht_7117wt_981

Heartpumper cable (the usb to OBD that says KLine and DCan) should work for all cars, both pre and post 03/07 builds. Some of the ebay cables may not work with later (03/07+) cars as it isn't made for DCan cars. I can't certify any of the cables I linked will work, but I think they will for the stated cars.

Honestly, I'm glad someone finally posted info using DIS/GT1, etc. on this forum as I've been trying to get info on this from bimmerforums for months and they don't have a lot of info for e90's as that forum is more focused on older bmw's.

This is also my understanding about the cable I bought that it is pre and post 3/07 compatible as the seller of the bay linked cable posted this info for "Newer Models" I would guess that is 2010 or 2011 that is now using this pin 8 for ethernet connection?

This picture below is useful for people with the latest BMW models which got Ethernet available on the OBD2 plug, BMW uses pin8 to enable this Ethernet connection, unfortunately this pin is (was) also used as 2nd K-Line for a couple of older BMW models, we do connect the K-Line to pin8 as well to be fully backward compatible to those older models, if you have such a new model with Ethernet and experience "communication disturbed" as soon as the diagnostic begins we advice you to remove pin8 by soldering it out.

I have a suspicion that neither BT cable will work, either because of the pinout or the VIN-checking code in the EEPROM. It would be nice if someone could give a BT cable a shot, as I'd rather just purchase one cable with a nice piece of datalogging software as a bonus.

For '11 e70 this cable would be the correct one then right?

Just sent donation for your time compiling the diy and necessary programs to make it happen. Hopefully I can get dvd in motion working soon!

That cable should work, the only thing you might have to do is desolder pin 8 as shown by seller if you have communication error...
