Solution:
It means KESS V2 can’t read and write this type of ECU, ECUs on the same car model in different areas are sometimes encrypted in different ways, and therefore the tool cannot always work on the same car model.

How to solve KESS V2 Wake up error?

If you get “Wake up error” when running KESS V2 V5.017, please format the TF card firstly and then copy the whole software again back to TF card, finally to reflashing the CPU program.

Details as follows:

Tips on how to copy files to TF card:

Step 1: receive the “kess v2 up” compressed file from us online.

Step 2: decompress it, and you will find 4 files: File, Log, System and Update, choose them all, copy and paste to TF card. (IMPORTANT NOTE: Don’t directly copy the “kess v2 up” compressed file to TF card; Don’t create a new folder in TF card and copy the 4 files into the new folder.)

Possible reasons and solutions:

Possible reasons:

Kess v2 ecu chip tuning tool fails to read out TF card program or the program in the TF card is not working.

There are 2 reasons result in Kess v2 fails to read out TF card program.

1) The four pins of chip are not firmly soldered on the main board.

2) The chip is disconnected to the main board for a long time use.

2-4

Solution:

Solder again the chip; make sure it is tightly connected to the main board.  If it is not the chip problem, do the following jobs.

Use brush to clean up the shrapnel on the card slot.

Maybe the card slot shrapnel is not flexible enough; use something like a needle to lift it up, to make sure the shrapnel and the TF card is well connected.

Remove the TF card and clean up it, then insert back to the card slot. If it is still not working, format the card and copy the software back to the card.

2-5

Finally, reflash the CPU program, after finish reflashing, copy and paste the software to the TF card again.

5 ways to switch KM to Miles on a BMW e39 M5 2000

22-1

This post is to offer 5 optional approaches to help how to switch KM to Miles on a BMW e39 M5 2000 year by OBD2TOOL.

Car model and year:

BMW e39 M5 2000 year

Problem:

The car is in KM, not miles. It was sold to him as having 122,000 miles. Carfax is in miles, registration is in miles, maintenance history is in miles… It’s was a Canadian car and the first owner was in Canada. The second owner was in California, and it was assumed to be switched at that time. It was in too good of shape to have 122k on it. They assured him it was miles. Well, I got a chance to put a couple hundred miles on it and noticed I was racking up miles way to fast, and the trip was displaying KM so, I set the trip when I hit a mile marker as the odo was rolling to I could see. Sure enough, it was KM. The car only has 76,000 on it.

Tools to use to switch KM to Miles:

Option 1: You can probably change it through one of the modules (IIRC it’s KOMBI) using NCS Dummy / Expert. The following first paragraph tells you how to do it with NCS Expert. I highly recommend NCS Dummy which has English translations for the German parameters, and lets you tick boxes to activate / de-activate various features.

Option 2: For a simple change like this, I recommend BMW Scanner 1.4 (a.k.a. PA Soft). Around $17 on worldobd2.com. Last I checked, you will need a 32bit Windows computer use it because the software is old, someone say they can use it on 64 bit-Windows as well, you just need to do a few extra steps to get the cable driver working properly. I got BMW ICOM A2+B+C running perfectly on my old Windows 7 64-bit laptop.. It also allows you to change many other dealer settings like auto locking and enable/disable daytime running lights. Google BMW Scanner or PA Soft for screenshots and DiY instructions.

Other approach: The following second paragraph is on how to access to the hidden OBC if u dont have 1.4 PAsoft, this also tells you that test #12 in the hidden menu will let you toggle between them (miles and km).

Another good option is to find a good list person w/ good setup who’ll do it for beers. Not everybody is cut out for the fun & good times that is setting up INPA/NCSexpert etc. PASoft is far easier but can be a bit more dangerous but is also a great scanning/diagnosis tool to have around. If you find somebody around you to help it can be actual real fun times too to hook up and check out some other E39s…

On the other hand, is there a red dot near the trip mileage? If so, someone tampered with the instrument cluster. But that’s unlikely given that you say the car is in fabulous shape.

Procedure:

– How to use NCS Expert to switch KM to Miles?

Part 1 – Steps to read miles using NCS Expert

Connect your cable (BMW INPA K+DCAN cable or BMW ICOM A2 emulator) to your vehicle’s OBD II port and to your computer. Your vehicle’s ignition should be in the ON position, but your engine does not need to be running.
Launch INPA and verify that it reads Battery: ON and Ignition: ON. You should also have a program called “EDIABAS Server” running in your task bar. If everything checks out, close INPA.

Leave the server running.

Open “C:\NCSEXPER\WORK” and create an empty text file named “FSW_PSW.MAN”. I just use NOTEPAD for this.
Launch NCS Expert. Go to File -> Load profil and select “Revtor’s NCS Expert Profile”, click OK.
Select “VIN/ZCS/FA” then “ZCS/FA f. ECU”. This will tell NCS Expert to attempt to read your VIN from your vehicle’s ECU so you don’t have to type it in.
Select your chassis from the list and click OK. Then select which module you want NCS Expert to read your VIN from. Usually the first choice is fine. Click OK again to have NCS Expert read your VIN. You should see the CHASSIS, FG, and FA fields populated in the top part of the NCS Expert window.
Select “Back”, then “Process ECU”. You will be prompted to select a module. Select the module you want to read values from(in this case KOMBI OR AKMB) and click OK. Click OK again on the window that appears to return to the main NCS Expert window.
Select “Job” and choose “CODIERDATEN_LESSEN” from the menu. This will change the job from one that writes to one that only reads data. Many of the job names look very similar. Always read job names carefully to ensure you select the correct one.
At this point NCS Expert is relatively harmless, as all it can do is read from your car. Select “Execute job” to begin reading from your selected module. When you see “Coding ended” below the module name, the process has completed.
Once NCS Expert has read data from a module, it stores that data in a file called

“FSW_PSW.TRC” (called a “trace file”) in the “C:\NCSEXPER\WORK” folder. This file contains some general information about your car, as well as all the values currently stored in the module you read from.

Part 2 – write odometer from miles to km using NCS Expert

Open “FSW_PSW.TRC”(you can use NOTEPAD) and find the field you wish to modify. Trace files are formatted as:

FIELD_NAME

field_value

Change the field value(s) to your desired settings(this is where you look for the WEG_EINHEIT field name, and change value to “km”), then save this file as “FSW_PSW.MAN”, overwriting the empty one you created earlier.
If you closed NCS Expert, follow steps 1-6 in the section above to get back to the correct screen. Otherwise, NCS Expert is ready to code your module as soon as the job is changed back to the default, “SG_CODIEREN”. Do this by selecting “Job” and then “SG_CODIEREN”, then click OK. Verify that the correct job appears in the “JOBNAME” field.
Click “Execute job” to have NCS Expert write the information from FSW_PSW.MAN to your vehicle. When you see “Coding ended” below the module name, the process has completed.

Depending on what you coded, you may need to turn your car off and back on again to verify the desired feature/behavior has taken effect.

Open “FSW_PSW.MAN” and delete its contents. Save and close the file.

That’s all about BMW E series odometer change, from miles to km, using NCS Expert coding software.

– Procedure how to access to the BMW Diagnostic Tool?

if you have 1.4 PAsoft you can do it.

if u dont have you need to open the hidden OBC secret (cluster) with the code and then go to test number 12

1) Press and hold “R” down for 5-6 seconds

2) You’ll see TEST NR 01

3) Momentarily press “L”

4) You’ll see your vin ID, for instance, mine is 08685

5) ADD THE DIGITS :: 8 + 6 + 8 + 5 = 27

6) press “R” again until you reach TEST NR 19

7) Press “L” to select

8) You’ll see “LOCK: ON”

9) Press “L” until you reach “27” (the number that was the addition result)

How to make a Backup of CAF file from BMW F series

This is the instruction on how to use E-sys program to make a Backup of CAF file from BMW F series, shared by a forum member. Quoted here, and hope it helps someone out.

What you need
– An ENET BMW coding cable
– E Sys program, datafiles, token and PIN
– A laptop

It’s quite easy to make a backup of the CAF files from your car. Basically, as soon as you start reading the CAF files from your car, the E-Sys program automatically stores the files into “C:\ESysData\CAF”. All you basically need to do is to copy these files and store them somewhere safe. The ICOM A2 is to make a new copy (and keep the old!) every time you want to code, this way you always have a copy of the last working version (just in case you break something lol).

Here are the instructions that were given to me the first time around:
17-1

Quote:

1) Connect the Laptop to Car and hit the Connect symbol on the top left.

2) Pop up will appear , now select F20 not “F020 direct” and click connect (You should see your car VIN in this pop if not, close the pop up.. wait for few seconds and repeat the step 2 )

3) If step 2 is successful you will see a small popup telling the same …close that pop up (You will see these pop ups in most of the steps just read and close).

4) Now e-sys program should switch to coding mode (if it didn’t then go to expert mode and click on coding icon on the left vertical pane)

5) Now you will be in coding prospective… Click on Read button under the VO pane.

6) After step 6 you will see FA appearing in the VO pane

7) Now Click on Read VCM or Read button under VCM pane….you will find it it will be on your Right hand-Center

8) Once you click that you will see all the ECU’s populated below VO pane and left of VCM pane

9) Now expand the ECU’s… all most all ECU’s will have a file starting with CAF (With green indicator) right click on the CAF file and select Read coding data

10) You have to do the step for all the ECU’s. Some ECU’s will not have CAF’s, you can ignore them.

11) Easier way to perform step 9 and 10 : on your left hand side bottom there will be a drop down which should show “ALL” change that to “CAF” and you should see all the CAF’s in the ECU pane now you don’t have to dig in each ECU to find the CAF.

Note: You can use Ctrl+Click to select more than one CAF and then read coding data… Don’t click on all the CAF’s just do four or five at at time max.

12) Once you have complete reading all the CAF’s go to c:/esydata/CAF . You will see the folder CAF has all the .ncd files generated.

Once you have done the above, simply copy those .ncd files and store them somewhere safe.

ICOM A2 ISTA-D not registered (solved)

Several months ago, I got BMW ICOM A2 emulator from China, and I’ve installed ISTA-D and ISTA-P like this video tutorial shows:

BMW ICOM A2+B+C install Process Question

ISTA-P seems to work(via Loader) but ISTA-D won’t.

If I open ISTA-D I’m getting the message
Code:
Attention – This device has not been registered

If I change the following line from “true” to “false”
Code:
<add key=”BMW.Rheingold.CoreFramework.ILeanActive”
value=”false”/>

I get an other window than the not registered:
Code:
License warning!
Unfortunately your local copy is not activated yet or has expired.
It’s necessary to activate your local installation via an
authenticated license. Please follow the steps in the next dialogs.

If I continue there are fields for Name / E-Mail / Comment, after that it shows an key, which should be sent via mail to them. Below there is an field for a license. I also copied the license from an other and earlier version(3.44.30 which seems to be update only) in this field but still can’t click on the next button which is greyed out.

The ISPI Admin Client shows all installed.
Code:
ISPI Admin Client: 1.1.808.3
ISTA: 3.48.20.13322
ISTA/P: 3.55.0.300
HDD-Update: 2.2.5449.17449
KSD: 2014.12.1.0

After I’ve read it never would activate in a VMware VM I’ve installed it on a physical machine but same problem there.

I don’t know if you need any more information, here are my system information:
Windows 7 x86 in VM, x64 physical, 4GB RAM, 180+ HDD, .NET Framework 4.5, newest Flash / Shockwave (…), “ISTA_SYS_3.48.20.13322.msi”

Solution:
The only thing you need to do is run the “ID.reg” file so it will add some info to the registry. After this, ISTA/D should work fine!
