Register BMW 7 series Battery with INPA and Toolset32

The battery needs to be registered when you replace it on BMW 7 series (5 series, 6 series etc). Here is the guide to show you how to register new battery with INPA or Ediabas toolset32.

Note: This is just for REGISTERING THE SAME SIZE BATTERY. You are at your risk.

First with BMW INPA software:

inpa-register-battery-1
inpa-register-battery-2
inpa-register-battery-3
inpa-register-battery-4
inpa-register-battery-success


With Ediabas toolset32:

ediabas-register-battery-1
ediabas-register-battery-2


first go to file then click F3 then select POW_E65.prg

in the second pic double click the command (steuern_batterietausch_registrieren) just ones and you are done .

remember this is for registering the same size battery not for retrofitting another size , if you want to retrofit 90AGM battery you need to register the battery with DIS/ISTA because DIS/ISTA well register only 90AGM battery , if you want to retrofit another battery size you have to use NCS expert.


FAQ about register BMW battery:
Q: We always used inpa. Should i use both or registering with inpa is enough
A: registering ones is enough , some ppl have problem with INPA registering there battery so i put toolset32 .

Q:  what is this battery thing ( registration ) with what? the car computer ?
So if you take out the battery and say get a sears diehard gold . what happens can someone
explain . will another battery work ( doesn't it just see a 12 volt power supply?

A:You need AGM battery. It must be registered. Otherwise it wont charge properly. Our cars are very sensitive. If your battery is low or doesn't get charged properly u will get different errors and faults. Your car need to know how it needs to charge battery thats why u need to register it. You can go to dealer, or u can set up bmw tools and do it yourself.


Q: Where do i get the software and cables to register my battery??
A: BMW ICOM Next or BMW ICOM A2 with ISTA and engineering software INPA, Ediabas, Ncs expert etc. Check here BMW ICOM NEXT A+B+C with V2017.05 Software ISTA-D 4.05.20
 ISTA-P 3.61.4.002 etc. You can also download ista torrent on forums and use with INPA K+DCAN cable. Better go for INPA. If you are not good using software programmers, you can buy Foxwell NT510 BMW multi-system scanner that can be directly plugged into the OBD II port. It is located by the drivers door Behind a little flap near the lower hinge area. It is more expensive but can do more things and is specifically programmed for BMW/Mini.


Q:
The error above should be with INPA (using INPA ) I get "group file: D_POW.SYS-0012: Identification error" with no space between D and : but the system is making it an emoticon.

A:You might need to Update your Daten files . Better buy newer software package.

Reset BMW E90 series Transmission by INPA

I am trying to reset automatic transmission adaptations on BMW E92 335i 2007 via INPA K+DCAN cable and software, but i am stuck at the step as indicated by the picture.

inpa

I downloada gs19.ipo file to do my reset as I have the alpina and it wouldn’t work so now it does but I got this message:

“nicht zusammenpassende versionen fehlfunktion ist moglich” which translated says

“Mismatched versions malfunction is possible”

 

I search around forums and finally get some clues from Alex Fiehl. Big thanks to Alex who helped solved my problem.

 

There are reset jobs/functions in Tool32 that I find is more reliable. Just be prepared to follow the proper “re-learning” procedures afterwards. Check detail guide below:
Automatic transmissions are fickle beasts which can be astronomically expensive if not maintained. Throw in the fact that it’s a BMW, and the need for regular maintenance becomes quite clear. Unfortunately, a fluid and filter change is not as easy as it used to be.

When hard parts are replaced in a transmission or the fluid is changed, resetting the transmission’s adaptations may become necessary to restore shift quality. The ZF 6-speed automatic used in many E90-based vehicles like the 335i, X1, and 135i (among others) is an expensive transmission, and fluid replacement w/adaptation reset can be a great way to extend the life of it. This article should apply to any E-series vehicle that uses the ZF 6-Speed “Steptronic” Automatic.
When should I reset adaptations?
-When the fluid is changed
-When the software is updated (i.e. Alpina B3 Flash)
-When hard parts are replaced inside the transmission
Warning: If you have the capability of resetting transmission adaptations with INPA, I urge you not to do it unless you have the time and roadways to complete the relearn process exactly as described. This procedure will cause the transmission to shift poorly at a detriment to the gearbox if the relearn is not performed immediately and properly. It is better to change the fluid and NOT reset adaptations, than to reset them and not perform the proper relearn procedure.

To interface with your BMW you will need a BMW INPA K+DCAN Cable, which is a USB to OBD-II interface cable. We won’t be coding any modules or doing intensive flashing, so even a budget cable is likely to work, though.

 

Software Installation
To get INPA (as well as other coding features not needed in this article) BMW Standard Tools must be installed. Here are details instructions on how to install it:

How to Set up BMW Standard Tools 2.12 on Windows 7

 

Resetting Adaptations
Turn the vehicle’s ignition on but do not start the car by pressing the start button twice. Plug in the K+DCAN adapter to the vehicle and laptop. Execute INPA. When INPA is loaded, the battery and ignition bubbles should be filled in to indicate it has established communication with the vehicle.
Press shift+F8 for E90 based vehicles:

reset-bmw-transmission-inpa-1

Select Transmission, then select GS19:

reset-bmw-transmission-inpa-2

Press F6 Activate:

reset-bmw-transmission-inpa-3

Press F3 to reset transmission adaptation values:

reset-bmw-transmission-inpa-4

After pressing F3 the software should confirm the adaptations are reset and you can begin the process of relearning.

 

Relearning Adaptations
The most important part of resetting transmission adaptations is the re-learn process. Refer to the chart below to see which re-learn procedure your vehicle needs after its transmission adaptations are reset. Your vehicle’s build date will be on the sticker in the driver’s door jamb.

Download and use INPA to do BMW Fxx coding

Yes, INPA software works with BMW Fxx Chassis, so long as you have the Fxx .IPO files installed.

It will use whatever interface you have defined in EDIABAS.ini, so BMW ENET cable is fine. Also,ICOM A2 is definitely ok.

Here is my INPA 5.06 with Fxx Scripts:

inpa-bmw-f-series

INPA is not updateable with SP=Daten as it uses only the .PRG files in EDIABAS and its own .iPO files.

Here is a full INPA with F and E series for you to download, but no one holds the responsibility for what you will do.

If you don’t wanna take any risk with INPA K+DCAN, here is a tested version for you:

BMW inpa cable

Basically, there are two methods for users to get the INPA K+DCAN usb cable, to buy a complete one or simply build one yourself. Read the following to get it.
One way is to build a cable yourself. Cost for this would probably range anywhere between 10 to 20 bucks. You will need to solder a bit but it’s nothing too serious if you follow the instructions to the letter.

Its actually very simple that any average person can do that has access to a drill and a soldering gun.

Tools needed..
1. Small philip screwdriver to take the D-can cover off
2 Radio Shack micro on/off switch (can be two prongs or three) and some wire 24 guage.
3. Soldering gun
4. Some type of glue gun or glue adhesive
5. Drill bit 5/16 to make hole in the D-can cover

Locate pin 8 which will have a number on the side of the board. One side will have the digit 1 and the other digit 8

Once you locate pin 8, thats the pin we will be using as well as the next one over. Connect each pin 7 and 8 with a separate wire and then use the soldering gun and connect each wire to the micro on/off switch… If you bought a 2 prong on/off switch connect it to each side, but if you bought a switch with three prongs, connect the middle and one of the ends, doesnt matter which one. At the end there will be one prong end not used…Neatly place the wires snug so that the D-can cover can be closed without anything preventing it to make a closed seal and your done. Screw in the 4 philip head screws in their respected holes. Note which postion is on and which is off by some type of label on the outside of the cover…SImple! Note on my first pic, I have a switch with 3 prongs, but I snipped off the 3rd one just to make it easier to solder…

Modified-k+dcan-cable

I modified my cable with a switch and have 7 and 8 bridged to work with a 2004 E46. INPA and Dis 44 work perfect but I cant get Progman to work. Progman starts to reads the FA/ZCS after you choose the car model and then after awhile it says it requires an Edic/Icom cable connection. What needs to be done to make connection with Progman SSS V32?? Do I need to change anything in the Ediabas configuration. I know my modified cable works fine now that I modified it because Dis 44 and INPA wasn’t communicating before I modified the cable. Thanks for the help. I am stumped as I want to code the car for my brother-in-law. I actually can use Dis 44 as I already went into the CKM coding menu, but Progman is much better to help him choose his features he wants as its pretty much offers a checklist with dots!

 

Took a pic of my success with my modified D-can cable connected to E46 using Progman. My brother-in-law had no idea he had so many features that were not turn on…He also turn off his daytime running lights which he hated!

(NOTE: this diy guide is from cn555ic at e90post.com, the professionals have not tried, put it here )
But if you are not interested in building one, buy a dedicated BMW cable instead. This is a site that has been confirmed working by some of E-series friends:http://www.obdii365.com/wholesale/bmw-inpa-k-can-with-ft232rq-chip.html .. I wouldn’t recommend other sites, although they may work, problem is that they have not been confirmed working yet. Functions of k+dcan cable at obdii365 has been tested for years (many discussion in forums).
The version 2016 cable is great, designed with the FT232RQ chip and a switch to turn LEFT is for 7 pin or RIGHT for 8 pin (8 pin for K-LINE communication (old DCAN cables cannot do it) for BMW from 1998 to 2008)
the chips and switch on the cable….

How to install inpa on windows xp

Inpa installation video made by obdii365.com officially

I’ve used this install method without fault on umpteen machines now and not had to amend any registry settings or anything, its worked first time every time this way..

 

there is a myth you have to use com port 1 with INPA this is total cobblers! you can use any com port number you like as long as the INPA OBD.ini file port selection matches your actual com port setting on the vagcom interface you have set..

 

First things to do is Download the 326MB version of BMW INPA from a torrent site or anyware you can get it ( and extract it to a folder on your machine..

 

you also may need to download the FDTI VCP (virtual com port) driver for windows XP for the Vagcom USB interface from the FDTI website, unzip it to a folder and copy this folder to the 326MB INPA installation software folder so you know where it is and for any future installations…

 

Virtual COM Port Drivers

 

  1. Insert your modded OBD-II-USB vagcom cable into your usb-port

-once it is detected by windows and prompts for the driver (at this point windows may find the drivers for you depending on the vagcom type) point it towards your FDTI vcp driver folder in the INPA folder if windows fails to find the drivers…

It will then install the drivers (it will probably go thru this process twice just repeat the process)

In the windows Device Manager, you should now see [Ports COM & LPT] ->> “USB Serial Port (ComX)

right click this and click properties/port settings /advanced.

at the top change your port number to your selection( if you do not wish to move or force a device on COM1 to another port because its already being used just select an unused port usually COM2 is unused) just remember your port selection for the INPA\install.

Now change the transmit and receive settings in the drop down boxes to 2048 for both transmit and receive

Now change the latency setting from 16 to 1

Ok the changes and exit

The usb vagcom cable is now setup.

 

  1. Always use SAME USB-port from now on.

 

  1. Installing INPA

you must copy and paste your downloaded complete INPA installation software folder to your C drive.

in your INPA folders click programmisation then double click setup.

It should default to English so ok this.

Click next till you get to the selection for software to install.

Select or deselect in options boxes but as a minimum select INPA ,EDIABAS and NCS expert if you want it.

Click next you will be asked to backup and restore (I declined this , unticked the box and skipped it all)

Make sure quick launch and desktop icons are ticked.

Click next.

Now select STD-OBD in drop down box (should be by default).

Click next.

Now select the com port number you selected earlier from the drop down box and tick the USB to serial adaptor box.

Click next and install (if it ask for backup and recovery just click skip to these prompts if you wish)

Finish install

Reboot

Now go to C/ediabas/hardware/OBD/OBDsetup.exe

Double click OBD setup.exe

If all is well you should get a black DOS box up with various settings shown with a full house of ok’s on them, you may get the start one saying warning instead of an ok if you have selected an alternative com port just ignore it)

press any key to exit if the list is ok.

Reboot

Go to C/ediabas/bin..

Find the OBD.ini or OBD file and double click

Your settings will be dispayed make sure they read as below

PORT= COM? (your com choice entered and set earlier)

HARDWARE=USB

RETRY=ON

UBAT=OFF (type this command in manually in this position)

Exit and save

Right click andCopy the amended OBD.ini file and paste it into your C/windows folder

Now go back to the INPA \install folder on C drive.

Open C/INPA folder/REFERENZ/INSTALL.

Double click instprog.exe

Ok the german writing page

Select English and continue.

At destination drive page make sure C drive is selected and continue.

Now select BMW “GROUP RECTIFICATION PROGRAMME UK” from the list and click continue

Now select the following:

Ediabas tick update box

INPA tick update box

NCS expert expert tick complete box

click continue

Tick the box “delete the old NCS expert “

Click install

double check that C:\EDIABAS\BIN has been added to the path string in enviromental variables (right click my computer/properties/advanced/enviromental variables and select path in the list, click edit check its there and exit without changing anything)

 

That’s it. you should be done and ready to get diagnosing

 

Always use the SAME USB port on your laptop when using the software…

 

PS if you want to do recoding with NCS expert (highly doubtful like its in german and impossible) you need ignition sensing which you dont get with a Vagcom but you can flip the FDTI chip (FT232RL chipset) on the interface with Mprog software to fake the batt and ignition sensing so you can encode…

 

 

bmw inpa windows vista 32bit

here is my successful INPA install method for Vista (i have been told it works for WIN7 32 bit too)….

 

  1. Firstly again open up your £7 Vagcom interface by removing the 4 x phillips screws on it

Get yaself a fine soldering iron and with a blob of solder,solder pins 7 and 8 together on it and put it back together…

 

there is a myth you have to use com port 1 with INPA this is total cobblers! you can use any com port number you like as long as the INPA OBD.ini file port selection matches your actual com port setting on the vagcom interface you have set..

 

First things to do is Download the 326MB version of BMW INPA from a torrent site or anyware you can get it or just PM me If you want a known good working version to download, i have uploaded it zipped with WinRar with the FDTI drivers included just extract it to a folder on your machine…

 

IF YOU HAVE YOUR OWN COPY you also may need to download the FDTI VCP (virtual com port) driver for some windows OS’s for the Vagcom USB interface from the FDTI website, unzip it to a folder and copy this folder to the 326MB INPA installation software folder so you know where it is and for any future installations…

You can now test INPA on your car it will work with the INPA diags only and you will get error warnings with Ediabas running because of the OBDsetup command errors earlier,to address this copy and paste the following below into a notepad folder, save the file to your desktop and name the file “serial.reg” and select all files and save…

 

  1. COPY and PASTE all registry data below…

 

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Serial]

“ErrorControl”=dword:00000000

“Group”=”Extended base”

“Start”=dword:00000002

“Tag”=dword:00000001

“Type”=dword:00000001

“ForceFifoEnable”=dword:00000001

“RxFIFO”=dword:00000008

“PermitShare”=dword:00000000

“LogFifo”=dword:00000000

Go back to to C/ediabas/hardware/OBD/OBDsetup.exe

Double click setup the blackbox should be clear of errors (you may get 1 if you have selected an alternative port number other than COM1 ignore it)

 

You now should be good to go with full functions and no error messages when using your INPA…

 

 

inpa installation windows 7 32bit

This DIY was tested with Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 (SP1) running on a circa 2008 Lenovo S10 netbook with a K+DCAN cable from one stop electronics.com. My netbook is used solely for coding and as such this DIY assumes that your computer is dedicated to this purpose as well.

 

I recommend starting with a fresh 32-bit Windows 7 installation in order to collect the necessary INPA 5.0.2 configuration files that you will need after installing BMW Standard Tools 2.12. I suggest disabling Windows Update automatic updates during the Windows 7 installation process. After entering your product key, the following screen will pop up security message.

 

Select “Ask me later”, this will prevent Windows 7 from automatically installing any updates.

If your installing from pre-SP1 Windows 7 media, I highly recommend that you manually install two Microsoft updates:

System Update Readiness Tool (KB947821):
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl…s.aspx?id=3132

Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (KB976932):
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl…s.aspx?id=5842

During testing pre-SP1 Windows 7 no longer displayed a mouse pointer after successfully installing EDIABAS & WinKFP and rebooting the system.

INPA 5.0.2 can be found here:

INPA-EDIABAS full English Edition

Installation Guide

Follow steps 2 through 6 of the installation guide. During the EDIABAS & WinKFP install (step 3), select Windows XP (this is not mentioned in the installation guide.) For all other selections, accept the default and click Weiter which is German for “further.”

 

The very first time you attempt to install EDIABAS & WinKFP (step 3), regsvr32 will fail to register two Windows ActiveX controls. This is normal, upon re-installation everything will work properly.

 

Click on OK and then click on the large red circle with a white X at the bottom of the screen to see the second regsvr32 error.

 

Click on OK to acknowledge the second error.

 

Press any key to exit the EDIABAS OBD setup program. Don’t be concerned about any registry key warnings, this installation of EDIABAS will never be used.

 

When prompted to reboot, select Nein for “No” and then click on Beenden or “End” to exit the installation program. Go to Control Panel and uninstall the program.

 

Once you have uninstalled the program, reinstall it. On the second attempt, the ActiveX controls will register properly.

 

This time, select Ja for “Yes” and reboot.

 

Even with SP1 installed, on occasion the system will no longer display a mouse pointer after rebooting the system at this point. If this happens, depress the Windows logo key (on some keyboards it may have an icon of a house instead) to display the Start menu. Depress the right arrow key once and then depress Enter to initiate a proper shutdown. When powered back on, the system should have a functional mouse pointer.

Continue with steps 4-6 in the installation guide.

At the completion of step 5, the Windows Program Compatibility Assistant may appear. Click on “This program installed correctly.”

 

At this point you could optionally install the latest EDIABAS/INPA update (ES-76) from FAL’s EA-90X distribution. I don’t recommend doing so as the latest INPA scripts are in German and not necessary for coding. Installation of the ES-76 update is outside of the scope of this DIY.

You now have the base INPA scripts and configuration files that you’ll need to get the latest version of INPA (5.0.6) up and running. Copy the the INPA CFGDAT and SGDAT folders to removable media for safe keeping. They are located in C:\EC-APPS\INPA.

If your curious, INPA 5.0.2 is operable at this point. If you were to install the K+DCAN drivers from Windows Update, set the cable to COM1, etc. the battery and ignition clamps are working properly.

 

That’s cool, but INPA 5.0.2 and friends are not totally compatible with the latest SP Daten files (i.e. 50.2), so let’s move on to installing BMW Standard Tools 2.12.

Links to BMW Standard Tools 2.12 and NCS Expert profiles can be found in this post:
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo…postcount=4476

SP Daten 50.2 can be found in this thread:
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=882353

Blow away your previous installation of Windows and start over with a fresh install. INPA 5.0.2 and friends made changes to the Windows registry, etc. Now that we have the two folders needed to bootstrap INPA 5.0.6, it’s best to reinstall Windows. If your installing from pre-SP1 Windows 7 media, don’t forget to install the System Update Readiness Tool (KB947821) and Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (KB976932.) In addition, because this will hopefully be your final re-installation of Windows  I suggest that you manually install one additional Microsoft update:

Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1:
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl….aspx?id=40779

When the K+DCAN cable is initially plugged in, Windows will indicate that the device driver was not successfully installed.

 

Click on the white box circled above when it appears to change the driver update settings.

 

Click on “Change setting.”

 

Select “Always install the best driver software from Windows Update” then click on “Save Changes.”

 

Windows Update will install the latest FTDI drivers needed for the one stop electronics.com K+DCAN cable. Notice that the FTDI driver has defaulted to USB Serial Port COM3. You need to change this to COM1. Click on “Close.”

 

Click on the Windows Start button to display the Start menu. In the Start Search box type the following command and depress Enter to launch Device Manager:

Code:

mmc devmgmt.msc

 

When Device Manager opens, click on the arrow to the left of “Ports (COM & LPT)” to expand the Ports device tree. Double-click on “USB Serial Port (COM3)” to open the device properties.

 

Click on the “Port Settings” tab and then click on the “Advanced” button to display the Advanced Settings for COM3.

 

Change the COM Port Number to COM1 and the Latency Timer to 1 msec and click “OK.”

 

The USB Serial Port should be set to COM1. Close Device Manager.

Install BMW Standard Tools 2.12. Accept the defaults and click “Next.”

 

When prompted to select additional tasks, de-select the “Execute backup and restore wizard” selections under Data backup. You don’t have an existing installation of BMW Standard Tools to backup. Click “Next.”

 

Click “OK” to acknowledge that the backup wizard has been deactivated.

 

When the Hardware Interface Settings screen appears, select “USB to serial adapter” then click “Next.”

 

Click “Finish” to complete the BMW Standard Tools setup and restart your computer.

Please note: This section of the DIY could be improved for neophyte Windows users. It assumes that you understand command line syntax. In this context, X: denotes an unknown drive letter (i.e. the USB thumb drive that you saved your INPA CFGDAT and SGDAT folders to.) For example, if in Windows Explorer under Computer your USB thumb drive is denoted as Drive E:, then you should use E: instead.

Code:

C:\Users\808>copy E:\CFGDAT\*.ENG C:\EC-APPS\INPA\CFGDAT /v14 file(s) copied.

If you chose to store the CFGDAT folder in another folder named MyStuff, then you would have to include MyStuff in the source path.

Code:

C:\Users\808>copy E:\MYSTUFF\CFGDAT\*.ENG C:\EC-APPS\INPA\CFGDAT /v14 file(s) copied.

The drive letter and path to the source file(s) is dependent on where you stored the files.

Click on the Windows Start button to display the Start menu. In the Start Search box type the following command. Right click on the Windows Command Processor (cmd) under Programs and select Run as administrator.

Code:

cmd

When the User Account Control dialog box appears, select Yes to allow the Windows Command Processor to make changes to your computer.

Copy the Windows ActiveX control MSFLXGRD.OCX to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 and manually register it.

 

Copy the Windows ActiveX control RICHTX32.OCX to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 and manually register it.

 

Overwrite the INPA initialization file in the C:\EC-APPS\INPA\CFGDAT folder with the INPA.INI from your saved CFGDAT folder.

Code:

C:\>copy X:\CFGDAT\INPA.INI C:\EC-APPS\INPA\CFGDAT /v /y1 file(s) copied.

Copy the INPA scripts and configuration files from your saved CFGDAT and SGDAT folders.

Code:

Copy the group files from the SP Daten E89 folder to C:\EDIABAS\ECU.

Code:

C:\>copy X:\E89\ECU\*.GRP C:\EDIABAS\ECU /v80 file(s) copied.

Import your daten files into WinKFP using this guide (steps 2-8):
WinKFP Import.pdf

Create a C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\E89 folder and copy the contents of the E89\DATEN folder into it.

Code:

C:\>mkdir C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\E89C:\>copy X:\E89\DATEN\*.* C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\E89 /v430 file(s) copied.

Copy the contents of the E89\SGDAT folder to C:\NCSEXPER\SGDAT.

Code:

C:\>copy X:\E89\SGDAT\*.* C:\NCSEXPER\SGDAT /v224 file(s) copied.

Go to the E89\DATEN directory and execute the LADEN.BAT script.

Code:

C:\>cd X:\E89\DATENX:\E89\DATEN>laden.bat

You’ll receive errors at the end of the script due to the missing C:\EC-APPS\CARSERVER directory, ignore them.

bmw inpa windows 7 64bit

  1. Buy a cable
    I purchased a USB cable from china, it came with software but I didn’t use it and instead used online resources that I downloaded for which I’ll provide links. The cable I purchased is a USB to OBD2 connector that plugs into your BMW to the right hand side of the steering wheel, in the foot-well area.This is the specific cable that I purchased and that I can confirm works:

http://www.obdii365.com/wholesale/bmw-inpa-k-can-with-ft232rq-chip.html

 

  1. Download the software

There are many sources on the internet for INPA/EDIABAS, some seem to work, others do not – I used these specific downloads and they worked perfectly:

 

** UNFORTUNATELY THE DOWNLOAD LINKS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE – BUT I WILL SEE WHAT I CAN DO **

 

If for any reason the above links are missing/broken, PM me and I’ll see what I can do. Thank you to whomever is hosting the above files and I hope that you do not mind me providing these links.

 

  1. Setup/Configure your OBD2 USB Cable

Put the DVD that arrived with the cable into the DVD drive on your PC.

Plug in the cable into a USB port on your computer, you must ONLY use this USB port from here-on for this cable. If your computer is connected to the internet it should automatically search and install in the USB cable drivers. If your computer does NOT automatically detect the cable, you may need to use ‘Device Manager’ to manually update/select the driver.

Once installed, go to Control Panel -> System -> Then click on the Hardware tab, then click on Device Manager.

Locate the entry ‘USB Serial Port’ in the ‘Ports’ section of Device Manager. It should read ‘USB Serial Port (COMX)’.

Right-click on the above and select ‘Properties’, then click on the ‘Port Settings’ Tab and then click on ‘Advanced’.

Change the ‘Com Port Number’ entry to ‘COM1’.

Change the ‘Latency Timer (msec)’ to ‘1’.

Click on ‘OK’ and close all the windows, restart your PC to confirm all the changes.

 

  1. Install INPA/EDIABAS 6.4.3 and 4.4.7

Extract the contents of the downloaded file ‘INPA-6.4.3-full.rar’ and you’ll find a .NRG file. This is a CD image that you’ll need to either burn to a CD or extract to a folder using a tool such as ISOBuster.

Once extracted, go into the following folder ‘/REFERENZ/INSTALL/’, right-click on ‘INSTPROG.exe’ and select ‘Properties’, click on the Compatibility tab and change the dropdown to Windows XP SP3 as the Compatibility Mode, also tick ‘Run As Administrator’, then click ‘Ok’, then double-click the file to run the installation.

Select ‘English’ as the language and click ‘Next’.

Select ‘Next’ until asked for ‘Configuration’, scroll to ‘BMW Group Rectification Programs UK’, click ‘Next’.

Tick the option ‘Complete’ for all of the options shown.

Select ‘Next’ and allow the installation to start.

After a minute or so, installation will complete, close the Window.

 

  1. Verify environment variables

Go into Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings.

Select ‘Environment Variables’ and then verify that the System Variables ‘TMP’ and ‘TEMP’ both contain the path ‘C:\EDIABAS\Bin’ within the ‘Value’ string – for instance “C:\Windows\Temp;C:\EDIABAS\Bin”.

 

  1. Prepare Installation Files

Extract the contents of the downloaded file ‘INPA_502_Updated.rar’.

You’ll use the contents of this archive during the next three steps.

 

  1. Install BMW Tools

From the above extracted file set, find the file ‘Step 1_ Install BMW Tools.exe’, right-click on it and select ‘Properties’.

Click on the Compatibility tab and change the dropdown to Windows XP SP3 as the Compatibility Mode, also tick ‘Run As Administrator’, then click ‘Ok’

Double-click on the above file to start the installation.

Set the Destination Path C:\BMW Tools (Don’t change this path) -> ‘Install’ -> ‘OK’.

Select ‘English’ -> ‘Continue’ -> ‘Continue’.

Select ‘C:’ -> ‘Continue’.

Select ‘Skip’ -> ‘Next’

Accept the defaults for programs to update, then click ‘Next’.

Select ‘Com1’, ‘OBD’ and ‘USB to Serial Adapter’ -> ‘Continue’ -> ‘Continue’.

The installation will begin and complete.

 

  1. Install INPA/EDIABAS 6.4.7 and 5.0.2

From the above extracted file set, double-click the file ‘Step 2_ Install INPA.exe’.

The Destination Path should be ‘C:\temp’, leave as it is and click ‘Next’.

Choose ‘English’ and select ‘Continue’ and ‘Continue’.

Select ‘C:\’ and then ‘Continue’.

Select ‘BMW Group Rectification Programs UK’ and click ‘Continue’.

Tick ‘Update’ for all options where not grayed out, then ‘Continue’.

Select ‘OBD’, then ‘Continue’ and ‘Continue’.

The installation will begin and complete.

 

  1. Install OBD Setup

From the above extracted file set, double-click the file ‘Step 3_Final Update.exe’.

The Destination Path should be left as it is, then select ‘Install’.

Select ‘Yes to all’.

Once completed, the window will close itself.

 

  1. Complete Installation

From the above extracted file set, double-click the file ‘serial port.reg’.

When prompted, select ‘Yes’ and ‘Yes’. You will receive confirmation that your registry has been updated.

Locate the file ‘C:\EDIABAS\Bin\obd.ini’ and copy this file into your Windows folder.

Edit the file ‘C:\EC-APPS\INPA\CFGDAT\INPA.INI’ in Notepad, locate the section that starts with ‘//F3’, remove the slashes at the beginning of the three lines of text, and amend any instance of ‘F10’ to ‘E46’.

bmw inpa windows 8

writing this to help others achieve INPA on their Windows 8.1 64bit laptop.
I’ve done it, verified it works.

FYI The installation of the first package will be in C:\ so you know

I’ll be hosting it on my dropbox for a little, if someone can mirror it, I would be grateful.

First download this INPA package.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/mn6n4bhej8…_INPA.rar?dl=0

unzip, go to programinstallation\setup.exe , run it in xp compatability mode press next all the way through then reboot
once rebooted go back into the unzipped folder, go to referenz2006 and then run the exe in that folder. choose english and then UK preferences , only update the first two. complete it.
No need for reboot

Next you need the e39.eng and e39.ger files to place in your INPA\CFGDAT

https://www.dropbox.com/s/ufov0h935y…FGDAT.rar?dl=0

this is CFGDAT zip , take the e39.eng e39.ger from this and place it in the folder above.

here is the e39 sp daten files. replace the ECU folder in the ediabas folder , replace the daten CFGDAT and SGDAT in the NCSEXpert folder with the ones from the zip.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/w8v1b8ysm2x7t5v/E39.rar?dl=0

Go into INPA\CFGDAT and double click inpa.ini , change any of the lines you wish to represent which F button it corresponds with “E39” for all three lines . FYI our S62 engine is hidden nicely under shift + f9 for old models under e52. You can also use the e39 profile under Shift + f9 for old models if you don’t want to edit your INI file
Example :
F6 = E39
F6_Text = E39
F6_ARCHIV = SGBD_E39

save it close it run inpa enjoy!

Feedback needed incase i missed a step, thanks!

Edit: If i’m missing any files let me know, i sort of want to revive the whole INPA tutorials since there aren’t any written for 8.1

SOLVED…

just in-case someone else stumbles upon this with the same problem.

Check your settings, in device manager, set com port to 1 and latency to 1. check your ediabase.ini is set to Interface =STD:OBD

check your obd.ini is set to Port=Com1

Hardware=USB

 

then reboot. I had all those setting correct and the cable was communicating through IPNA. The reboot fixed it. the alpina b3 flash is the titties!

 

 

bmw inpa windows 10

Note: It’s a customer solution! Try on your own risk

install the drivers for INPA K+D-CAN cable (version with FTDI FT232RL chip only)

disconnect from the Internet because it is possible that the drivers are installed from Windows Update (if you want to use the latest home FTDICHIP then disconnect or reinstall)

why run the executable CDM 21216_setup.exe; It is compatible with 64-bit versions of Windows 7,

If necessary, you can download the latest version according to the OS on the site FTDICHIP
http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm

This is an interface / cable VCP (Virtual COM Port) so there are two features and therefore an installation in 2 phases if done manually

1 – Cable driver
2 – VCP driver

if using the automatic executable (.exe) offered on the site, then the 2 self install a result it’s easier and without going through the Device Manager =>
then plug the INPA cable into a USB port

NOTE WELL PORT IDENTIFY THIS CAR ALONE WILL WORK AFTER SETTING IT WILL THEREFORE ALWAYS CONNECT THE CABLE ON THE PORT

in Device Manager there will be a new entry: “COM and LPT ports” / sérial USB Port (COM3) eg for now

Then you must configure the port that will emulate the virtual COM port 9 (eg. Default for Ediabas 7.3 patched) but it’s tune to your install

Open Device Manager, choose COM Ports / USB serial port / port settings / advanced / set “COM 9” and the latency to “1”

finally install BMW Standard Tools, all versions are not compatible with win 7 and 64-bit architectures, so use the BMW STD Tools version 2.12, which includes a recent version INPA 5.0.6 and 7.3.0 Ediabas.

BMW INPA K+DCAN and 16 Pin to 20 Pin Connector

Here has a question to BMW 7-Series(E38) owners that when they manage to diagnose their precious car, they will find some modules’ obd2 port are 20pin, while some are 16 pin. So ask for help on the forum if there has a tool To access to all modules to diagnose.

The 20 Pin obd2 diagnostic connector:

bmw-e38-16pin-obd2-port-1

Here, obd365 engineer will recommend INPA K+DCAN interface with a 20Pin to 16Pin connector. This is the cheapest combination to achieve your purpose. The INPA interface is $15.99 and the connector is only $4.99, total cost less than $25 with free shipping!

INPA K+CAN Interface + 20 pin to obd2 16 Pin Connector for BMW

inpa-20pin-16pin-connector-2

Why choose this combination?

If your car has a round BMW 20pin diagnostic port under the hood and pin 15 of that port is populated and has voltage, then an 20 pin to 16pin connectorwill be required in order to access and code all available modules without issues.

An ADS interface works best with a computer with a true serial port. A modified VAGCOM KKL interface with emulated ignition signal will also provide similar access, however where coding procedures require toggling of the ignition signal, there will be an issue due to the inablility of these interfaces to detect a true ignition signal. If the 20 pin diagnostic port of your car does not have pin 15 populated, interface options would be an EDIABAS compatible OBD2 interface. The INPA software is free, developed by BMW for their own use, fast and accurate.

inpa-interface-3

20pin-16pin-connector-4

Look at the port closely, each pin is individually identified with its pin number and looking at your configuration it appears that your car has 11 pins of the 20 pin port populated, namely

Pin 1 (TD Engine)

Pin 2 (TXD2 Diagnostic data link)

Pin 4 (Terminal R -Voltage hot in accessory, run and start position)

Pin 7 (Service interval reset)

Pin 12 (Generator charge indicator)

Pin 14 (Terminal 30, voltage hot at all times)

Pin 15 (RXD- L data line)

Pin 16 (Terminal 15S – Ignition switch voltage in run and start position)

Pin 17 (TXD2 – K data line)

Pin 19 (terminal 31 – Ground)

Pin 20 (TXD – K data line).

 

FAQs about BMW INPA with 20 Pin connector:

 

Q1: How does this Interface work?

A1: It can be setup as STD:OBD2 Interface in OBD2 mode or as ADS in ADS mode.

 

Q2: I have seen other auctions from other vendors for a higher / lower price, what’s the difference ?

A2: Usually the price and the quality – Since our Interfaces are assembled and tested to the highest quality standards, It’s up to you (the customer) to compare price, product and terms and make your decision according to that.

 

 

Q3: I have an older BMW that have an 20-pin OBD1 connector under the hood, is that the right interface for it?

A3: Yes, this Interface is the perfect choice for 20 pin OBD1 vehicles – only with this interface all modules are accessible in certain 20 pin OBD1 vehicles.

 

 

 

Q4: I have an newer BMW that have an 16 pin OBD2 plug inside the vehicle compartment, is that the right Interface for it?

A4: As long as that BMW does not require DCAN yet you can use this Interface in OBD2 mode and it will cover all functions.

 

 

Q5: Can’t I simply use the cheaper OBD2 interface sold by you and many other sellers together with some adapter cable for my 20 pin OBD1 vehicle?

A5: You can, however if your 20 pin OBD1 vehicle requires real ADS mode not all modules will be accessible.

BMW INPA K+DCAN UBatt and Ignition Fix

Here is the customer solution to the BMW INPA K+DCAN USB cable UBatt and Ignition black always black issue.

So, got my self a high quality INPA K+DCAN Interface from China.
Interface looks very well designed and has a nice PCB, all components soldered properly on the board.

Installed BMW Standard Tools 2.12 as per instructions of our friend Bimmer with all software he provided in his thread.

While connecting and testing the interface I found the UBatt and Ignition dots were always black. Interface connected to OBD2 or not.

Decided to try to fix this and started to read.
Found that RI from TTL-USB converter is used to indicate UBatt and DSR/DTR is used to indicate Ignition ON.

Traced back the tracks from OBD2 pin 1 and found 2 resistors mounted on the board as voltage dividers. However the values and connections were as:
Pin 1 -> 1K -> 47K -> GND.

These were not the proper values to get ~5V at the junction between both resistors. Changed them to 47K and 22K. That solved the Ignition ON indication problem. See picture “Ignition.jpg” resistors R5 & R6.

Then moved on to the UBatt problem.
Seems the RI pin on the FTD232RL is directly connected to GND on the board. That is why the UBatt dot is always black.

So, I lifted the pin (UBatt_1.jpg) and used a transistor BC547/1K/10K as inverter to pull this pin to GND if the interface gets +12V on pin 16 of the OBD2 connector (UBatt_2.jpg).

Now both indications work as intended.

You can easily find out if it is the K+DCAN interface or soft setup the reason for the black dots.

Just start Inpa software without the interface connected to the OBD2 in the car or the USB. Dots should not be black. Must say that I have not found any entry yet in Ediabas.ini which will cause the dots to be black without an interface connected. There are entries to instruct EDIABAS to flag an error or not if the Ubatt/Ignition are not sensed by the soft.

I expect the software requires the info that power and ignition is on, hence the option to have the error detection ON or OFF in Ediabas.ini.

I’m not an expert in BMW, but for Mercedes the software instructs to switch ignition OFF at a certain moment, detects that and starts a timer. After the timer expires the instruction is given to switch Ignition ON, detects that and the program continues. Expect BMW soft has similar functions like that. May be some one more experienced in BMW diagnose can shed some light on this.

Please find my handmade sketch for the circuit attached.
Blue: existing components on board
Red: new components to be added
Green: wires to be soldered

Transistor can be any low power NPN type.

I expect that the circuit also will work without the transistor, but then the RI pin must be inverted in the FT chip configuration with Mprog and the junction of both resistors connected to the RI pin. How ever, I did not test this yet.inpa-k-dcan-UBatt_3

The modification is not required to communicate with the car. I did diagnose an E46 succesfully before these mods.
If yours does not communicate with your car then check:
– if you have 20pin connector at engine bay. If so, you should use that one for diag and not the OBD2.
– If you can get data from engine ECU but not from other controller then you should bridge pin 7&8 in the interface.
– if ediabas.ini is set to std:obd
– if the right port is set in ediabas.ini (expect this is correct)
– if port latency is set to 1 in system hardware

If all is set ok and you are at the right diag connection at your car then download Free Serial Port Monitor to see what is going on between PC-interface-Car. You can actually see the requests and replies.
This free software also shows you the status of the RI and DTS/CTS signals, very handy while testing with the resistors and transistor.
