coding

hi there, ive been trying to set up ncs expert and inpa for over a week now without success....so i hold my hands up and in need of help.....

didnt know how a bit of software could really start to do your nut in....

ive followed a lot of different tutorials and have all the files....but just cant get this to work...

i can get inpa to work and read the airbag modules....

when i start up ncse i can read the vin but not the fa ( vehicle order) i get an error "COAPI-2000, BIP-0001 error "

any ideas where im going wrong?

You are probably missing daten files or have daten files that are too old. What daten version do you have?

I just tried to pm you the link to v47, use total commander to update your ncs folder. Let me know if you don't get it I've been having connection problems on this site.

thanks for the pm much appreciated.....

ive got the files....i followed the guide through and made a folder called e89 in the daten folder (as this didnt have a e89 folder)in ncse and used total commander to put all the files across. same for the other files in the ecu, cfgdat and sgdat folder. double click laden.bat , it creates files in the daten folder.

i get an error.... when pressing f1 and f3, select e89 then i get error

chassis is faulty or something like that......cant say exactley as im not at home at the sec

The first cable I ever bought worked just fine so I'm not really sure what a bad cable does. I had the exact same issues you have had until I just took every single ecu, daten, and sgdat file I could find on my computer and on the net and ran it through total commander. I pretty much started over and copied files starting with the earliest versions and after much tedious work I got NCS to code. Just keep at it, it took me a few days and lots of research.

if your cable works fine, you'll get two black dots when you connect it with your car using the inpa software

Change the latency of your cable settings from 16 to 1.

well just to let you know, it wasnt the cables or the software, it was a faulty car lol.....the vehicle order was corrupted by the dension enabler tool. i took my car to a recommended coder and got the problem sorted....
