BMW Coding Error

Hi,

I'm new to coding and am getting some errors. I've followed step by step in the DIY guide that was posted by xxxjecxxx. I am getting an error on INPA when doing the airbag test. I've attached a screenshot of the error. Anyone have an idea why I might be getting this error or trouble-shooting ideas?

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!

Do you get the battery and ignition dots on the first INPA screen?

yes, the battery dot is on immediately and then about a minute later the ignition dot comes on too.

Most of the time you can ignore the airbag test
As long as you have the 2 black dots on then you are ok to code

Kind of related...and new to coding here too. I get the battery dot (sometimes even when the car is off) but I've waited about 5 minutes and don't get the ignition dot. I'm doing some searches on why this would happen but does anyone have any ideas?

Maybe your OBD is wrong configured or some files are missing.
Which INPA version do you use? Your INPA is able to diagnose your car anyway?

I was finally able to get it. Saw a lot of people talking about the obd.ini so I got that created and put it in the right folder. All is well, I try coding my first thing tomorrow and see how that goes. It takes some screwing around to get the black dots (i.e. plug in/unplug a few times). I'll report back and hopefully get it figured out.
