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

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.

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.
