X-Drive Transfer Case Reset

Hey,

I posted in the x-drive sub but couldnt get any definite answers (http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=933141)

Anyone know how to reset the transfer case settings? As in what software would I use and such? I have a k-dcan cable that I know works, along with a mess of software that I need to sort through, but a step by step thing would make it so easy.

Thanks in advance

I am in the same boat as you. From reading around, there seems to be no k-dcan procedure to do this at home. I guess I will visit BMW Monday.

You can do it with DIS.

Bmw Diagnostic Information System. It's a virtual machine that you need to setup and run with a k+dcan cable. It does pretty much every service function excluding flashing and coding modules. Search for it, I have version 57 and it's great. I think the torrent is on pirate bay.

I just fixed an old laptop, installed XP SP3 32 bit, installed DIS, VMWare, OBD cable... Click a few things in DIS, it asked me if I wanted to do the calibration reset. Heard the motors move, took about 10 seconds. Then cleared the code again in INPA. Drove it and the fault code stayed away and my transfer case is good to go again.

Spent 6-8 hours getting DIS working, dragged it out over 2 days. Would have been quicker to go to dealership but glad I was able to do it myself.

From what I've read, its hit or miss when you change your transfer case fluid, the computer complains loudly with the cluster lighting up like a christmas tree and the xdrive not working.

Plently of people have done it without the reset, but I want to be sure before I do it.
