NCS Expert BMW Coding for Window & Sunroof Remote Control

Here is the “comfort closing” option that is not available here in the US. It is a matter of programming one option in the footwell module.

 

So here is an update to the additional changes I have done to my car in the mean time : I was able to retrofit the IBOC tuner with NCS as well. The dealer cannot and will not be able to do this for you! That was best done via modifying the Vehicle Order and resetting the radio module (since I don’t have NAV).

Also retrofitted the factory bluetooth & usb kit with NCS, also by changing the VO and defaulting the RAD2. Works perfect.

NCS Expert Change BMW Vehicle Order (VO)

The nice thing about modifying the trace files in NCS is that you forget what you have changed and something goes wrong, you can “default” the module back to factory specs (and the default is based on your Vehicle Order [VO] which defines the region of your vehicle [like how Canada cannot turn off DRL from the BC on the stalk] and the modules installed in the car).

The following are the changes I have made.

Comfort closing via the remote fob (also can be done via the metal key in the door cylinder). In the CAS module

Code:

KOMFORTSCHLIESSUNG_FB

    aktiv

Seat belt chime is in the Airbag ABG/MRS module. Driver and passenger is set separately. CC_GURT stops the seat belt message at startup.

Code:

CC_GURTWARNUNG

         nicht_aktiv

SBR_BEIFAHRER

         nicht_aktiv

SBR_FAHRER

         nicht_aktiv

And now the two-touch open and two-touch close sunroof is working, in the SHD module

Code:

SCHIEBEHEBEDACH_TIPP_AUF

        aktiv

SCHIEBEHEBEDACH_TIPP_HEB

        aktiv

SCHIEBEHEBEDACH_TIPP_SENK

        aktiv

SCHIEBEHEBEDACH_TIPP_ZU

        aktiv

No A/C engagement when pressing the AUTO button! In the IHKA module

Code:

KLIMA_MIT_AUTO

        nicht_aktiv

Digital speed always shows in the top window (so I can see instant miles per gallon and the speed at the same time, word has it 2011 models this is default) in the KOMBI module

Code:

DIG_SPEED_PERMANENT

        aktiv

Enable fog lights with the high beams. In the FRM module

Code:

FL_UND_NSW_NICHT_GLEICHZ

        nicht_aktiv

Double-Blink Hazard flashers. In the FRM module

Code:

DOPPELBLINKIMPULS_WARNBLK

        aktiv

Here are some additional changes that can be made:

Auto unlock doors when you remove the key. Only unlocks when the autolock is programed in the BoardComputer! In the CAS module

Code:

ER_KEYOUT_AUTOVR

        aktiv

Added the code to enable the alarm light on the top of the tach. In the SPEG and KOMBI change the following:

Code:

DWA_VERBAUT

    aktiv

Nav users can remove the legal warning upon startup. CAPPL Module

Code:

LEGAL_DISCL

         nicht_aktiv

To change your DRL mode to using just the front City Lights (the top bulb in the fog housing) and no other lights change the following two settings in the FRM module:

Code:

VERHALTEN_DRL_TFL

              drl_s

DRL_TFL_MIT_SML

              aktiv

To turn off bulb checks you will need to disable both warm and cold testing of each of the bulbs you modify and the appropriate check control message. I highly recommend running the NCS DUMMY translations to find the settings you need, there are way too many to post here. All of the lighting is in the FRM module. The abbreviations for most of the lights are in the translations. In the Cooper we do have dual dual-function rear bulbs in the tailights and they are controlled independently (if you turn off your car and turn on your parking lights you will see only one of the bulbs lit in the rear). Those are RL_BL_1 and RL_BL_2. KZL is license plate light, NSW rear fog, NSL front fog.
CC_MELDUNG_BLK_V is an example of the “Check Control” in your tach display for warning.

I wanted to get the BFD (brake force display) to work by flashing the rear fog light or flashers under hard braking, I never could get it to work. Be advised we don’t have BFD lights like many BMW assemblies have. But it looks like BFD_2 is what we would use.
