If you plan to provide coding services for friends and family, consider using this Liability Waiver. I drafted it quickly and with haste so you should double check =]

I don't know but on your first video that you're coding your cluster speed 'v=' looks like you had an invalid code and you still coded it in however your guages aren't working -- your gas and mpg. You need to fix that.

coded entire car instead of module, car coded up to a module then got error, and this method is not advised anyway, just provided an example.

Hey guys I'm new at BMW and I have a 2010 e92 335 and I got 2011 e93 bumper and so on for my car. Now the headlights work fine but the angel eyes and turn signal blink. Does anyone know how to fix it? I heard coding would do it is that right? Can I do coding from the dash or I need this cable and so on?

The cable from one-stop-electronics.com worked perfect for me as well. Its more expensive than some listed in ebay but it worth its value/. It comes also with a converter to work with older cars as well.

So I have an OBD CAN cable I used on my other car. Would it work with the BMW? I see that this cable is K+DCAN. The one I am using is ELM327, if that makes any sense on determining if it's ok to use. Basically I am still unable to communicate with my BMW. I've changed the Latency (from 16 to 1) and Ports (to COM1).

1. im trying to connect to a 3 series e90 LCI 2009 as iv had issues with lack of power im off on holiday with the car Monday and wanted to find out what was wrong before i go i have read every post i can find over the last week but cant find the solution

2. i have tried pin 7-8 linked unlinked

3. i have pins 1, 4, 5, 6, 9, 14 and 16 in the obd socket

4. I have tried xp SP3 32 bit. Firewall disabled, no anti-virus. No other software is installed. (I've had the same problem using Win 7 and Vista).

5. C:\Ediabas\bin is in the path.

6. Installed the USB cable and set the COM port to 1. Latency is set to 1ms. There is no option to use FIFO buffer.

7. Ediabas.ini has STD:OBD as interface. It is also set so loadwinxp = 1

8. OBD.INI is in C:\ediabas\bin and \system32. COM port is set to 1 but i have tried every other com port too.

9. When loading INPA, I get black battery and ignition when plugged in and starting car.

10. I can not read the ECU. or read errors. just get ifh-009

11. When trying to read any other module, I get the IFH 0009 No Response From Control Unit.

12. i have tried 3 different leads all supposedly kline and dcan compatable

13. i have tried 3 different laptops

14. i have tried to run dcantools but i get interface not found when trying to set dcan

15. i have installed the software from 3 different CD that came with the leads and 3 downloaded sources reported working

What has happened to the speadsheet, loads of information has been removed from it?!

I really need to know how to get the sidelights as DRL, anyone know which this is?

Edit:-
The spreadsheet is fine, it's just that it goes to the translations quick reference tab when opened instead of the E9x codelist tab like it used to!
