BMW Programming Webinar FAQs

Why not include from dead sector script to prevent from damage before starting any programming?

permalink

This is a very good question, and this is something we can put over to our development team.


2 must be under 20a would you mean above 20 amps?

permalink

Ideally the current input to the car needs to be less than 20 amps, this is so the charger is not working too hard. We want a low, stable input.


From what year do you call late m power?

permalink
F-series M-power cars like the F82/83 M3/M4 and the F90 M5 2014 – present.

Is there a charge for each car programmed?

permalink

No, your subscription includes programming if you have PRO software or a DrivePRO. DriveRAP does incur a charge for programming Volvo, Peugeot and Citroen vehicles.


Can you program second-hand control units?

permalink

There are some control units which can be re-used/coded.  You have to check in the initial report (E-series cars) or vehicle status report (F/G-series cars) and check for errors stating that a control unit is incompatible. Later F/G series cars are the biggest issue as most of the control units are chassis protected. EGS (mechatronics) on cars with the later GWS (fly by wire) gear lever cannot be fitted as a used part to another car, you will not be able to select Drive. Additionally, any control unit connected to the immobiliser system cannot be fitted as a used part.


Do you need pass-thru box for coding?

permalink

No, coding files can be installed directly from the Autologic device.

Why not put an option to save the FSC from the old module first before fitting the new module?

permalink

This is a very good question, and this is something we will put over to our development team.


Why am I no longer available to code second-hand airbag control units using Blue Box?

permalink

This is fully dependant on control unit compatibility and whether or not the control unit in question is locked to a specific VIN. We have not added any blocks to prevent the coding of second-hand airbag control units.


Can BMW refuse you these codes?

permalink

They should not because the codes really belong to the customer/car owner. If you look at the BMW parts system, it states that the FSC codes should be supplied to the customer. The challenge is identifying and engaging with the correct person at the BMW dealership!.
