    Rapidshare down

    Hi! First post, I'll be brutally honest; I made this user only to post in this thread since I'm quite desperate.

    Does anyone here have the files from the first post in the thread? Since rapidshare is down, and I need E36 M43 1.8 files for INPA.
    If it helps, it's a 1992 E36 with a M43 1.8 from a 1996 E36 318i convertible.

    Thanks in advance

    04 545i active steering

    HEY FAL

    FIRST TIME EVER POSTING ANYTHING ON A FORUM. I HAVE 2004 545I THAT I CANT GET THE ACTIVE STEERING MESSAGE TO GO AWAY.
    IF I GO IN AND TRY TO RESET MY STEERING ANGLE MY CUMULATIVE ANGLE STAYS AT -8000
    I DO HAVE A CODE STORED THAT CANNOT BE CLEARED IN THE ABS/DSC 5F62 Signal Exchange AFS-DSC Invalid
    MY STEERING WHEEL IS STRAIGHT AND MY NUMBERS FROM MY STEERING ANGLE SENSOR LOOK GOOD IN LIVE DATA
    ANY IDEAS? THANKS BRANDON

    I came across this site in the hope of finding a decent coding place for E-series models, and the quality of this OP really put my hopes up, but by the looks of the latest posts in the thread and his own profile, FAL hasn't been active in a while. It's a huge shame, he seemed very knowledgeable.

    It is true to say, that I haven't been active here on BFi (or any other forum), for a good while now. Whilst, in my humble opinion, BFi is still the friendliest and technically knowledgeable BMW forum out there, work and family commitments have meant that I haven't been able to respond to questions in a reasonable time frame. Also, the relatively cheap and easy access to "one-click installations" of BMW ISPI Next and BMW Rheingold, is rapidly changing the amateur diagnostic community. This is slowly making my knowledge of the BMW Standard Tools package and associated software, redundant. Having said that, is there something I can help you with Hashim?

    Ah wow, you're still around after all. That's so good to see.

    Interesting what you're saying about those new programs, and kinda worrying, actually. I recently started delving into coding for friends, family and local area, and have been primarily focused with the Standard Tools. I've heard of ISTA-P and D, but what exactly is ISPI Next? I've also heard of Rheingold, but what exactly does it do? Do these two programs make the process of coding Exx series BMs easier than the Standard Tools do? Am I focusing my efforts in the wrong general direction, do you think?

    As for my original, more specific question. A friend has asked me to work on '02 E46, and I wanted to ask a few questions about coding it. Firstly, wich OBD port are these coded via? Is it just the OBDII in the footwell, or is the OBDI under the bonnet present on these models as well ?

    Secondly, a while back when doing some general research into E-chassis coding I seem to remember coming across a webpage or forum post that brought together all the Google Docs spreadsheets that listed all possible coding options for each chassis model, but I can't seem to find that link anymore, and I currently only have links for the E9x and E9x spreadsheets. Do you have access to those, or something better, by any chance?

    Thanks if you can answer these questions for me, it's really appreciated. I've done a LOT of research around these subjects in the past few months, and I'd welcome some direct input from an expert as opposed to the usual gameplan of piecing together information from a hundred different disjointed forum threads.

    ISPI Next (Integrated Service, Programming and Information - Next Generation) is just an all-encompassing term, for the current software/hardware used within sales and service, at BMW Group dealers. Thereís a whole host of both strange acronyms and programs, but the ones that will be of most interest are: ISTA-D a.k.a. Rheingold (Integrated Service Technical Application - Diagnostics) is the current dealer program for diagnostics, tests and actuations. Itís the successor to the old DIS (Diagnostic Information System) program. ISTA-P (Integrated Service Technical Application - Programming) is the current dealer program for flash programming and coding. Itís the successor to the old Progman program, that you may have heard of.

    It is easier to code a car with ISTA-P, when compared with NCS (New Coding System) and E-Sys. The simple user interface and English language option, do make the process simpler. However, NCS and E-Sys offer a wider range of possible coding options. Youíre not necessarily focusing your efforts in the wrong direction, but if you want to explore all of the possible coding options, then NCS and E-Sys are the way to go, albeit with a fairly steep learning curve and the potential German language barrier.

    If the car has both the J1962 16-pin connector under the dashboard and the BMW proprietary 20-pin connector under the bonnet, then use the 20-pin connector. In this case, the pins on the 16-pin connector wonít be fully populated and are only used for emissions-regulation based diagnosis, with generic diagnostic testers. Using the 20-pin connector, gives you access to all ECUs on the vehicle's network.

    I assume that youíre referring to the so-called ďcheat sheetsĒ found on some of the American forums, for use with NCS and E-Sys. Iíve never really used them myself and donít have a source for them. I donít know have far youíve progressed with your coding, but I assume that youíre already using NCS Dummy by Revtor? Are you only coding single ECUs or have you progressed to complete vehicle coding, via ZCS and FA?

    I hope this helps!

    Kind Regards,
    FAL

    Greetings FAL, do you know where I might find the inpacdh.h header file? I would like to call coding data functions from my PABS (INPA) scripts. Thank you.
