How to Renew BMW FEM/BDC by Auro OtoSys IM100

This post focus on how to renew BMW FEM/BDC by Auro IM600.

 

Two options are available when accessing FEM/BDC Renew:

#1 Copy Data Update: When the immobilizer information of the vehicle can be read from the original FEM/BDC module, perform this function to read the information
and write it into the replacing module.
#2 Calculate Data Update: When the immobilizer information of the vehicle can not be read from the orig inal FEM/BDC module, perform this function to generate
the information via the input VIN code, vehicle frequency and engine ISN codeand then write it into the replacing module.

 

#1 FEM/BDC Renew via Copy Data Update

Preparation
1.Attention: If there’s an ELV in the vehicle, the ELV may not be unlocked after performing FEM/BDC Renew. You’ll need to solve the locked problem yourself, so please start the operation with careful consideration.
2.To perform the Copy Data Update function, a working key or the engine ISN code is needed.
3.The hardware version of the original and replacing modules can only vary slightly. Otherwise, the DTCs of the vehicle may not be cleared.
4.Remove the FEM/BDC module from the vehicle.
5.Conduct ECU preprocessing on the replacing (used) module and the original module to make them able to learn keys. No ECU preprocessing is needed for the replacing module if it is a brand new one.
6.Prepare a blank key.
