Cable works on one car, but not another?

Hey so i have a weird coding problem. I have the full coding setup (NCSExpert, inpa, wool32, winkfp) and its all working fine on my 2011 e87, but i tried to code a mates 2008 e82 yesterday and i couldn't get it to work (connect with the car). I get the message "VIN is faulty" when i try to read the cars VO from CAS or FRM modules.

I double checked on my car to make sure it was working and it was. Any idea what the problem is?

I tried doing the airbag test in INPA, but INPA couldn't see the car as Battery: ON or Ignition: ON. I think i remember reading something about pins 7 and 8 in the OBD cable needing to be soldered together? Would this need to be done on slightly older model cars? If i did this would the cable stop working on my 2011?


I have the one stop electronics cable and am fairly good with coding things. Any help would be awesome

I have heard of some early 2008 models and older needing pin 7 and 8 soldered together on some cables, I would try soldering them together and see if it helps, it won't hurt anything to try it, it will probably stop it from working on your 2011 - you could take a small switch with 2 leads on it and solder those to pin 7 and 8 then just flip the switch depending on if you needed connected or not connected (or just solder and unsolder as needed, only takes a minute)

Cars manufactured before March 2007 need the pins bridged.

I don't think any 2008 models were produced before the 8th or 9th month of 2007.

In addition to the JB4, make sure all your TRC and MAN files in the Work folder are empty. This can cause connectivity issues on many occasions.

Yeah i cleared those. Does the JB4 just need to be turned off? or Does it need to be removed?
