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:

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)

VCM2 manual: NEW module programming using Ford IDS

VCM2 manual: NEW module programming using Ford IDS software

 

You need Ford IDS software, original or crack

You need a HQ VCM2 clone SP177-C or SP177-C1

(VCM2 genuine definitely is the best solution, but a high-quality one should work great, not  cheap crappy tools)

 

When installing a new module, the configuration data must be transferred from the old module beforeit is removed. The new module will then be programmed using this information. Use the followingsteps to download the data from the existing module and program the new module:

 

Step 1: Select the toolbox tab at the top of the screen

Step 2: Select "Module Programming"

Step 3: Select the tick mark or the Enter key

Step 4: Select "Programmable Module Installation"

Step 5: From the fly out menu, select the type of module to be installed

Step 6: Select the tick mark or the Enter key

Step 7: Make sure that an Internet connection has been established and then select "Confirm"

Step 8: Follow the instructions on the screen. These instructions vary depending on the type ofmodule being installed.

 

NOTE: Be sure to follow these instructions in the exact order that they are given. Do not remove or install any modules until instructed to do so. Failure to follow the instructions correctly may result in the configuration data received during vehicle identification to program incorrectly or not at all.

 

Step 8A: If Ford Module Programming was unable to retrieve the configuration data due to either

a non-functioning module or a module which was removed before the data was retrieved, the

application will request that the user obtain information from the Module Build Data (As Built)

database. Access to this database is included in the Ford Module Programming subscription. The

data can be obtained by doing the following:

  • Go to the Motorcraft website (www.motorcraft.com)
  • Go to the Technical Resources area
  • Log in using the User ID and password set up when the subscription to Ford Module

Programming was purchased

  • Select "My Subscriptions"
  • Select "Ford Module Programming"
  • Select "Module Build Data (as Built)"
  • Enter the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and select "Submit"
  • Write down the information that was requested by the Ford Module Programming

application

  • Return to the Ford Module Programming application and enter the requested information

Step 9: If necessary, apply the reprogramming label to the PCM

If an emissions recall has been performed or a required emissions-related TSB has been completed,

an Authorized Modification label must be placed on the PCM. These labels can be purchased at the

parts counter of a Ford or Lincoln/Mercury dealership.

 

NOTE: It is the responsibility of the technician to inform the customer that Ford Motor Company will not reimburse the vehicle owner for field service actions that are not completed at a Ford or Lincoln/Mercury dealership.

 

Step 10: When the "Programming complete" screen appears, select the tick mark or the Enterkey. If PATS initialization is required, Ford Module Programming may automatically link to the PATSparameter reset and/or key relearn procedures. Two ignition keys may be required to complete the

PATS initialization procedure.

Step 10A: If PATS initialization is required and Ford Module Programming did not link to thatfunctionality automatically, go to the Toolbox tab and select "PATS". Detailed instructionsare provided in Section 6.

How to: VCM2 clone reprogram Ford PCM/ECM modules

VCM2 manual: Ford IDS reprogram PCM/ECM modules.

 

What is a reprogram engine control module?

The Engine Control Module (also called the Powertrain Control Module or PCM) is the brains of the engine management system. It controls the fuel mixture, ignition timing, variable cam timing and emissions control

 

What is the PCM on a Ford?

A power-train control module, abbreviated PCM, is an automotive component, a control unit, used on motor vehicles. It is generally a combined control unit, consisting of the engine control unit (ECU) and the transmission control unit (TCU).

 

What is flashing a ECM?

ECM ECU PCM TCM FLASH – ENGINE COMPUTER VIN PROGRAMMING FLASH & REFLASH. “Flashing” refers to reprogramming automotive engine control modules (ECMs). Almost all new vehicles today are now flash programmable. Flash reprogramming is an important part of repairs and tune-ups on most 1996 and newer cars.

 

What is PCM reprogramming?

To reprogram a PCM or other vehicle module, you need a factory scan tool, or an aftermarket scan tool with reprogramming capabilities, or a J-2534 compliant “PassThru” interface tool (or J-2534-1 for 2004 & newer vehicles) that can connect a PC or scan tool to the vehicle’s diagnostic connector or module.

 

How to do Ford module reprogramming?

 

When a module such as a PCM is reprogrammed, it is not removed from the vehicle. All programmingis done through the communications network.

 

You need Ford IDS software, original or crack

You need a HQ VCM2 clone SP177-C or SP177-C1

(VCM2 genuine definitely is the best solution, but a high-quality one should work great, not  cheap crappy tools)

Step 7A: If no later calibration is available, a message will appear indicating this. Select the tickmark or the Enter key to return to the Module Programming menu.

Step 7B: If a later calibration is available, a message will appear asking if you want to reprogramthe module with this calibration. If you do not want to reprogram the module, select “No”. You willbe returned to the Module Programming menu.

Step 8: If you want to reprogram the module, select “Yes” in response to the question “Do you wantto program the vehicle with this calibration?”

Step 9: Make sure that an Internet connection has been established and then select”Confirm”

Step 10: You will be presented with a screen that recommends that you carry out Self Test. If youchoose to complete this test, you will receive a list of Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC’s) that havebeen set on the vehicle. When finished viewing this list, select “Exit”.

Step 11: Follow the on-screen instructions to prepare the vehicle and turn the ignition key off and on.

Select the tick mark or the Enter key after each one.

Step 12: If necessary, apply the reprogramming label to the PCM

If an emissions recall has been performed or a required emissions-related TSB has been completed,an Authorized Modification label must be placed on the PCM. These labels can be purchased at theparts counter of a Ford or Lincoln/Mercury dealership.

Step 13: Select the tick mark or the Enter key to return to the Module Programming menu.

 

 

a very important note:

Ford VCM2 IDS Error Code:11.0×0 851082 when PCM reprogramming

 

It’s aimed to help how to reprogram/reflash Ford PCM via IDS software esp. for those with  Error Code:11.0×0 851082 will be shared here by other users.

 

Error message:

“The operation cannot begin because the PCM failed to complete a service procedure. Perform PMI on the PCM to resolve the issue.”

 

Possible scanners working with:

 

Customer solutions:

Customer A:

Turnoff your firewall

 

Customer B:

Uninstall fmp and reinstall it. I have had this happen before.

I have had some new pcm be un programmable.

And just for reference. Fmp doesn’t like Google. Use 32 bit processor as well.

I had to slow my computer down from 64-32 because fmp would not work correctly with 64.

Good luck.

 

Customer C:

If you are checking PCM for up-dates, Ford will advise on 6.0L powertrain if there is a reflash avail for TCM, FICM or PCM, if it states there is no update then all three modules are at latest level, no action required, I am aware it states to remove FICM relay prior to reflash FICM, this is a carryover note from when we used PDS or WDS to reflash the FICM, if you are using IDS with VMM interface its not required to remove the FICM relay, I have reflashed over 1000 of them this way over the last 7 years, as always make sure the battery stays in the sweet spot @ 13.5 volts, make sure your laptop has sufficient power, I always plug in, make sure cables to veh and laptop are safe from accidental disconnect, Good luck!

 

Customer D:

If you try to VCM2 genuine or clone to make reprogaming well you need IDS V98.01 or higher.

It would be good to check if during initiation programming interface output 18,5V on pin 13 in OBD connector.
