Re: Coding the i3

Sun Jan 07, 2018 3:00 pm

Hi,

I cannot disable seatbetls chimes on 2017 i3 REX US version as the following values are not in the list:
SeatBeltReminder_Fahrer
SeatBeltReminder_Beifahrer
SBR-Prewarning_Fahrer
SBR-Prewarning_Beifahrer

ACSM2 section has the following: CAFD_000011AB_007_002_002 which almost all section under 3001 marked as Gurtwarnung_X_Y_Z / "Trimmed function".

I use:
ESYS 3.28.1
v.63.3_PSdZData_Lite

The only idea so far is to check CAFD_000011AB_007_002_002 from full psdzdata. Can somebody send it (psdzdata\swe\cafd\cafd_000011ab.caf.007_002_002) to me (as archive is way too much to download)?

Are there any other ideas?

Vasso,
I am having the same issue (options not available), did you ever figure out a solution?

Thanks

Got the passenger airbag update/recall on my 2015 and I can't code off the seatbelt chime anymore as well. Anyone know what the new parameters are? Can't adjust the alarm lock/unlock beep either.

Anyone in the NYC/long island area have the tools necessary for this coding? Would love to do some of this coding on my i3

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you have an iOS or Android device, you could code your i3 yourself. Download and activate the BimmerCode app and order a Vgate iCar 2 or 3 OBD-Wifi dongle from Amazon. For less than $50, you would be able to code the changes that you desire now and recode these changes after they're deleted when your BMW dealer updates your car's system software.

Any progress on bimmercode with setting 2.4gal? I have a 2014 and it keeps reveringting back to 1.9gal, and I can only enable Rex at 70% and below. Thanks

Hello,

1st time poster here, but I'm sort of at a loss for what I should do. About a week or so ago I coded my car via e-sys to enable TJA using an addon module. The coding went fine, and the TJA worked as intended. The other day, I decided to code my car to disable the freeway requirement and allow for higher speeds. When testing the coding, the TJA functionality still required me to use "the expressway."

I decided to revisit the coding over the weekend, in the meantime I used the BimmerCode app to recode some of the "essentials" (since it's quicker) - ie, folding mirrors when locking, door handle light up in reverse, etc...

Well, the next morning, I received 3 errors when I started my car:
    Brake System. Drive Moderately
    Cruise Control. Keep your distance
    Front-end collision warning restricted
    Pedestrian alert restricted

I used BimmerCode app to restore from backups. No change. I then went into esys to FA code from the TJA backup file that I saved prior to all of this. When I checked the codes, none of the changes I made were present. So it looks like everything is back to the original state....with the exception of the error codes.

I'm at a loss, other than removing the module to see if that helps. I'd like to learn and fix it myself, but I have no idea what steps to take next (other than just bringing it to the mechanic to fix)

Any advice is _greatly_ appreciated!

Ever since the dealership took my car in for the airbag recall I have been unable to code my car at all. I get messages that the CAFD file was not found when I hit click "read coding data" on ESYS. I'm currently using ESYS 3.28.1 and V.62.4 Pszdata_lite. Is there possibly a newer version of Pszdata available that would make coding possible again?
