How to choose a good BMW motorbike diagnostic tool?

There are three diagnostic tools mostly used to diagnose/program BMW motorcycles:BMW Icom a2, BMW moto diagnotic tool and gs-911 BMW motorcycle diagnostic. Here, take the best choice for you all to share: BMW ICOM A2 + ICOM D.

What can BMW Icom a2 + Icom D do for bmw moto?

1Supported BMW and MINI complete system diagnostic and offline programming.

2Supported to BMW vehicles up to year 2016

3Support Vehicles including BMW cars, BMW motorcycle, rolls-royce, mini cooper

4Support BMW all series diagnose and programming

 

Actually, ICOM A2 + ICOM D… is kind of expensive but most people use this kit. So far, it is the TOP 1 in the BMW motor diagnostics list, with the most powerful & stable function and the best reputation. ICOM A2 and ICOM D do well in diagnostic, coding and programming. A cool BMW motor deserves the best diagnostic kit.

 

Here is a successful case of bmw moto diagnosis via icom a2 and icom d.

 

Managed to do flash programming on BMW motorrad k1300s:

icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-1 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-2 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-3 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-4 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-5 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-6 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-7 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-8 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-9 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-10 icom-a2-icom-d-BMW-motorrad-k1300s-11

 

But, if you really cannot afford to ICOM A2 + ICOM D for diagnosis, we suggest you try the cheap kit – K+DCAN cable and BMW Motorcycles Motobikes  ICOM D. Attention!! The kit is for diagnosis only, not programming!

 

Here are the steps that I followed:
1. I cut all the big wire

icom-d-diy

  1. I used a multimeter in order to get the relationship between the pins and wires. I used continuity function.
    3. I ordered a female OBD2 (k+dcan cable and Vagcom cable both ok) because I broke mine trying to eliminate the plastic housing
  2. Then i used this configuration below:

Universal K-Line & CAN BUS Adaptor (K1600)

Signal OBDII Socket BMW 10 pin Plug

K1 15 (Ignition On) 1————————————————–10

Ground 4&5————————————————-4

CAN Hi 6—————————————————–7

K-Line 1 (BMS) 7—————————————–1

K-Line 2 (ABS) 8——————————————2

CAN Lo 14—————————————————–9

KL 30 (Bat+) 16—————————————————–6

 

 

How to setup K+Dcan inpa cable

Notes

1/ Dependant on the software, model & adaptor cable used it may be necessary to invert RI #

and DSR signals to for detection of battery and ignition as per the VAG KKL cable.

2/ This cable & access through the diagnostics port is yet to be tested

 

INPA software Installation

1/ If the cable is supplied without drivers & utilities download them from FTDI

2/ Install driver

Plug in cable, WinXP will find cable,

point to directory with drivers, windows installs.

3/ Set the USB Serial port parameters

/MyComputer/Properties/DeviceManager/Ports(Com&LPT/SerialUSB/Advanced

Set the Latency timer from default 16 msec. to 1 msec

Check USB Port No matches Port No set in INPA/EDIABAS (OBD2.ini)

4/ Install Mprog & modify the programming of the eeprom FT232RL

We need to invert RI # and DSR # signals to fool the detection of battery and ignition.

After programming check your I/O Control settings, they must be :

#C0 = RXLED #C1 = TXLED #C2 = POWERON #C3 = PWRON

#C4 = SLEEP Invert RI ticked Invert DSR ticked

Save settings

 

How to setup ICOM D adapter

8 pins fitted but in wrong pin No’s

Pin 01 – Vi/Sw

Pin 02 – Sw/Rt

Pin 04 – Ws/Ge

Pin 05 – Ws/Bl

Pin 07 – Ws

Pin 08 – Gn/Ws

Pin 09 – Br

Pin 10 – Gn We need pins 1,2,4,6,7,9,10 (Pins 7 & 9 are K1600 CAN Bus)

Plug with bike socket

How to install Toyota Techstream v12 on Windows 7 Pro 64bit

Fair warning: I would not consider this a good investment for someone who does not have a fair degree of tech skill, both when it comes to understanding computers (particularly manual driver installation and USB-based communications) and the Toyota TechStream software itself.

First and foremost: The mini vci cable worked perfectly well for me on a 2017 Sienna SE, using TechStream version 12.x.127(the current release as of the date of this post), based on a Lenovo ThinkPad T500 running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. However, in order to get to that point, I found myself using a different interpretation of the instructions another buyer (‘DuckDivesInWater’) provided in their review. I have no doubt the difference was caused by the fact I’m using a late version of TechStream.

PLEASE NOTE: The instructions below are based on a 64-bit OS. THE PROCESS FOR A 32-BIT SYSTEM WILL BE DIFFERENT.

1). Do NOT try to install the software on the CD directly if you’re running a 64-bit OS! I guarantee it will fail. Horribly. Also, my antivirus software (ESET Smart Security) threw a fit about several files on the CD being contaminated with a trojan. I believe this to be a false positive, caused by the type of anti-hacking application packager the device’s manufacturer (XHorse Electronics, out of China) used to bundle the software together, but be careful no matter what. Google search is your friend!

I will add that, after manually unpacking and installing the device driver, I had no other problems and no sign of virus or trojan infection.

2). Start by installing whatever version of Toyota TechStream you plan to use. Plenty of info on the Internet to help you out with that.

3). Copy the file “MVCI Driver for TOYOTA.msi” from the 10.10.018 folder on the CD to a temporary directory of your choice.

4). Open a command prompt window and change to said temporary directory. Extract the contents of the .msi file with this command (be sure to INCLUDE the double quotes where shown):

msiexec /a “C:tempMVCI Driver for TOYOTA.msi” /qb TARGETDIR=c:tempmvci

5). Once that’s done, delete the ‘MVCI Driver for TOYOTA.msi’ file so it doesn’t get run by accident.

6). Close your command prompt window. In Windows Explorer, go to C:Program Files (x86) and create a new folder under it called “XHorse Electronics”. Change to that folder and create another called “MVCI Driver for TOYOTA TIS”.

7). Next, copy the whole content of c:tempmvci (or whatever temp directory you used to extract the .msi into) to “C:Program Files (x86)XHorse ElectronicsMVCI Driver for TOYOTA TIS”

8). Plug your Mini VCI cable into a USB port. Windows may complain that it couldn’t install the driver. Ignore any such errors for the moment.

9). Open Device Manager and locate the failed item in the hardware list. It should be easy to spot, as it will have a yellow exclamation point overlaying it. You’ll probably see it under ‘Other Devices.’ Right-click on the device, select ‘Update Driver’ and ‘Browse my computer.’ Point the wizard to the folder you created in step 7: C:Program Files (x86)XHorse ElectronicsMVCI Driver for TOYOTA TIS

10). Note that you will likely need to do this twice, once for the VCI chip itself and once for the USB-to-serial-port translation. Point the second prompt at the same folder. Once the process finishes, you should see the two new devices in your hardware list.

11). In order for TechStream to recognize and use the Mini-VCI cable, you will need to add a registry tweak. Some Internet searching will probably turn up a pre-written file, called ‘mvci-x64.reg’ or you can create the file yourself with a text editor as follows:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodePassThruSupport.04.04]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodePassThruSupport.04.04XHorse – MVCI]

“Name”=”XHorse – MVCI”

“Vendor”=”XHorse ELECTRONICS Co.,Ltd.”

“ConfigApplication”=”C:\Program Files (x86)\XHorse Electronics\MVCI Driver for TOYOTA TIS\FirmwareUpdateTool.exe”

“FunctionLibrary”=”C:\Program Files (x86)\XHorse Electronics\MVCI Driver for TOYOTA TIS\MVCI32.dll”

“APIVersion”=”04.04”

“ProductVersion”=”1.1.0”

“ProtocolsSupported”=”J1850VPW:1, J1850PWM:1, CAN:1, ISO9141:1, ISO14230:1, ISO15765:1”

“J1850VPW”=dword:00000001

“J1850PWM”=dword:00000001

“ISO9141″=dword:00000001

“ISO14230″=dword:00000001

“CAN”=dword:00000001

“ISO15765″=dword:00000001

“SCI_A_ENGINE”=dword:00000000

“SCI_A_TRANS”=dword:00000000

“SCI_B_ENGINE”=dword:00000000

“SCI_B_TRANS”=dword:00000000

12). Finally, run Techstream. Go to Setup | VIM Select menu and select the “XHorse – MVCI”

You should now be able to connect to your car’s OBD port and use TechStream just as your dealer’s tech would. Be careful not to change anything you’re not familiar with! It’s too easy to screw something up.

My thanks to ‘DuckDivesInWater’ and ‘JHood’ on the ft86club dot com forums.

Happy tweaking.
