1. EDIABAS Error Messages

1.1 Driver Error

Message comes along with an ADS or OBD connector.

This error occurs if another program or device has taken the COM1 port of your PC.

If you want to work with EDIABAS or INPA, please make sure that the COM1 port is not

taken.

1.2 DirectNt.sys can’t be opened

This error only occurs with an NT computer if the ADS driver hasn't been installed.

The instructions for installing the ADS driver can be found in the “Installation Guide/Update

Guide” ADS_DOKU.pdf in the directory C:EDIABASHardwareADS or on the Intranet page

http://www5.muc/ti4-web/ti-430/german/themen/Diagnose.htm.

1.3 IFH-0002: Interface isn’t connected or doesn’t respond

Reason: In the Ediabas.ini file, the interface is set to STD:FUNK. However, you have

connected an ADS or OBD connector.

Solution: Modify the interface setting in Ediabas.ini.

1.4 IFH-0003: Data transmission HOST/Interface failed

Reason 1: In the Ediabas.ini file, the interface is set to STD:OBD. However, you have

connected an ADS connector.

Solution 1: Modify the interface setting.

Reason 2: The data transmission failed when sending (e.g. short circuit in the line).

Solution 2: Get rid of the short circuit, for example.

Reason 3: Connector not connected or no power supplied.

Solution 3: Check whether the connector is connected and is supplied with power.

Reason 4: The device manager has been used to disable the FIFO buffer for COM1.

Solution 4: In the device manager (Windows XP: Enter “Start” à “Control Panel” à

“System” à “Hardware” à “Device Manager” à Ports (COM & LPT)), and then

select COM1 from the ports. Then under the “Port Settings” tab, select

“Advanced”. There must be a check-mark by “Use FIFO buffers” and “8” must be

selected for the receive buffer and transmit puffer.

TI-430 Andreas Schandl Release date: 29.09.2006

1.5 IFH-0010: Data transmission to control unit disturbed

This problem can occur with XP computers with the OBD interface.

Reason: With Windows XP, it is not possible to automatically set the receive and transmit

buffers using OBDSetup.exe, like in Windows NT.

Solution: Set the receive and transmit buffers to 8 as shown in the following:

Use Start à My Computer à Control Panelà System à Hardware à Device

Manager à Ports (COM & LPT) and then click with the right mouse button to call

up the properties of the COM port that is being used. Under the Port Settings tab,

set the Data bits of the receive and transmit buffers to 8.

1.6 IFH-0013: Command not implemented

Reason: The error was caused by another programme that accessed the COM1 interface.

Usually, the “HotSync” programme is installed on the computer for the organiser.

Solution: Check the programmes that are started automatically when Windows is started.

1.7 Error: EBAS32.EXE not found or illegal version!

This error occurs if the path variable is set with the path C:EDIABASBIN in the system and

user variables (Start à My Computer à Control Panel à System à Advanced and then in

the "Environment“ tab).

TI-430 Andreas Schandl Release date: 29.09.2006

1.8 EDIABAS error: Error (95) SYS-0005: OBJECT FILE NOT FOUND

Reason 1: No SGBD in C:EDIABASECU

Solution 1: Copy the SGBD into the Ecu directory.

Reason 2: No group file in C:EDIABASECU (for group call)

Solution 2: Copy the group file to C:EDIABASECU

Reason 3: No path definition C:EDIABASBIN

Solution 3: Set the system variable (see 2.1)

Reason 4: Incorrect path definition in EDIABAS.INI

Solution 4: Set the EcuPath path in Ediabas.ini to C:EDIABASECU

Reason 5: The SGBD name contains reserved characters or is too long. Only 8 characters

are allowed (a-z, A-Z, 0-9, "_").

1.9 Createfile_error: OPEN CONNECTION; IFH 0018- INITIALIZATION

ERROR

ADS Interface:

The following error appears when Ediabas is started: Createfile_error: OPEN

CONNECTION

OBD Interface:

The following error appears when Ediabas is started: Error 28: IFH 0018- INITIALIZATION

ERROR. (Also see Section 3.3)

Reason: Ediabas is attempting to access port COM1. However, the port doesn't exist, or it

has been taken by another programme (e.g. HotSync from Palm, infrared).

Solution: Install a COM1 interface or free it.

1.10 Battery and Ignition not recognised

Reason: With a Dell Latitude D600 laptop, pin 9 has no function and it is therefore not

able to correctly recognise the battery status.

Solution 1: Use OBD via USB, see C:EDIABASBININI.PDF Chapter 2.2 for this.

Solution 2: The laptop is connected to the docking station.

Solution 3: Workaround for the OBD driver as of February 2004: A file “OBD.ini” must be

created in the directory C:WINDOWS for Windows XP, or alternatively

C:WINNT for Windows NT, with the following entry. This is because with

UBATT=OFF, the battery status is not determined via hardware, but is

permanently set to “Battery voltage available”. Also see OBD_DOKU.pdf in the

EdiabasHardwareOBD directory.

Entry in OBD.ini:

[OBD]

3 Tool Set Error Messages

 

3.1 EDIABAS error 100: SYS-0010: INITIALIZATION ERROR

Reason: This message comes when an SGBD has an automatic concept switch between

multiple diagnostics logs and is not connected to the controller.

Solution: Connect the controller.

3.2 EDIABAS Error 126 (only up to Ediabas V6.4.x)

Reason: This error message appears if you start the Tool Set while an INPA script is

running. This is also true the other way round. The reason for this is that only one

programme can access EDIABAS at a time.

Solution: Therefore, before you start the ToolSet, you must exit INPA!!!

3.3 IFH-0006: Command not accepted and IFH-0018: Initialization Error and

IFH-0038: Interface Command not implemented

Errors IFH-0006 and IFH-0018 occur if any SGBD is loaded in the Tool Set. Error IFH-0038

is generated when loading the utility file into the Tool Set.

Reason 1: The error was caused by another programme that accessed the COM1

interface. This programme could be “HotSync” for Palm or “ActiveSync”

for lpack.

Solution 1: Check the programmes that are started automatically when Windows is

started (see Chapter 4.1).

Reason 2: The COM1 interface is taken by a serial printer.

Solution 2: Uninstall the printer.

Reason 3: The infrared interface is active.

Solution 3: Deactivate the infrared interface.

Reason 4: There is no COM1 interface (COM3 instead, for example)

3.4 IFH-0006: Command not accepted

This error occurs if a SGBD is loaded in the Tool Set when the OBD connector is being used.

Reason 1: ODB has actually been set as the interface in Ediabas.ini, but the Tool Set uses

the multi-instance with another interface, e.g. K-Line. The setting for the multiinstance

and the interfaces used here is made in the file Tool32.ini in the

directory C:Windows (for Windows XP) or alternatively C:Winnt (for Windows

NT). Then, the entries in Tool32.ini, or alternatively the interface apply and not

the ones in Ediabas.ini. The use of multi-instance in the Tool Set is identified in

the title bar, for example with “Tool32:1”, for single multi-instance.

Solution 2: Enter the interface that is being used in Tool32.ini or disable multi-instance with

the entry “No”.

Reason 2: A SGBD is loaded in the Tool Set when the diagnosis protocol UDS is being

used. For UDS-SGBDs You have to use the interface OMITEC but in the

EDIABAS.ini the setting fort he interface ist „STD:OBD“.

Solution 2: Change the setting for thr interface to „interface = STD:OMITEC“ in the

EDIABAS.ini file. The OMITEC connector has to be stressed by the voltage (blue

blinking). If the connector can’t be stressed by the voltage and You want to load

the SGBD yet, You will use the simulation mode. You can activate the simulation

mode e.g. with the menue „configuration -> EDIABAS“. Notice, if you want to use

the simulation mode, a simulation file for the interface will have to exist in the

simulation path.

4.3 How can I find out if the serial interface COM1 has been taken?

There is a way to find out if the serial interface, for example COM1, has been taken, but it is

not possible to find out what programme has taken the interface.

As described in the respective sections of Chapter 3, the programmes that most often take

COM1 are HotSync for the Palm and ActiveSync for the lpack or a Nokia software. In order

to establish whether these programmes are automatically started when you start the

computer, please check your ‘Autostart’ settings. Do this by making sure that these

programmes don’t appear in the following directories:

- C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersStartmenuProgramsAutostart

- C:Documents and SettingsYour QX NumberStartmenuProgramsAutostart

Another way to check the utilisation of COM1 is to look in the system information. The

system information can be run with the DOS command winmsd in an input prompt (Start à

Run… à enter winmsd à OK). Here, it is important that you only run winmsd if the Ediabas

server is closed. Under the path System Summary à Components à Ports à Serial, the

information about the active serial ports COM1, COM2, and so on will be shown if they exist.

The current value can be seen in the element “Busy”. If this value is “No”, then the interface

is free, and if it is “Yes”, then the interface has been taken by a programme. You can’t find

out what programme it is here.

Frequently Asked Questions

BMW Group about

EDIABAS, INPA and the Tool Set Page 26 of 32

TI-430 Andreas Schandl Release date: 29.09.2006

4.4 How do I start INPA?

Start Inpa using Inpaload.exe in C:InpaBin or alternatively C:EC-AppsInpaBin or use

Start à All Programs à EDIABAS INPA ELDI NCS NFS à INPA(_.IPO) to start the general

reworking programme. This corresponds to calling Inpaload.exe under

smuc0900sgInpaBin or alternatively C:InpaBin.

4.5 How can I switch between OBD and ADS interfaces?

Prerequisite:

The appropriate driver must be installed for the interface that you want to use. In the

installation guide for INPA (http://smuc0900/TI-430 or http://smuc0900/TI-430 under Subjects à

EDIABAS /INPA à EDIABAS or INPA), you can look up how a driver is installed.

Now, you can change the interface directly in the file Ediabas.ini (C:EDIABASBIN). You

only have to make the appropriate change to the line where the interface is entered.

Interface = STD:OBD, i.e the OBD interface will be used.

Interface = ADS, i.e the ADS interface will be used.

Frequently Asked Questions

BMW Group about

EDIABAS, INPA and the Tool Set Page 27 of 32

TI-430 Andreas Schandl Release date: 29.09.2006

For the case that OBD is being used via USB, an additional entry is necessary in OBD.ini.

See C:EDIABASBININI.PDF for this.

4.6 In which directory structure is OBD.ini saved?

If the OBD.ini file exists, then in order to not run the interface via COM1 by default (compare

to 1 i), then the OBD.ini file must be saved in the directory C:WINDOWS for Windows XP

or in directory C:WINNT for Windows NT up to the Ediabas Package 1.3 and as of Ediabas

Package 1.4 in directory C:EDIABASBIN. The current version of the Ediabas Package can

be seen in the files C:EDIABASversion.txt or C:EDIABASpackage.pdf.

4.7 How can I find out what interface I installed with INPA?

To do this, you have 2 possibilities:

  1. Call Start à All Programs à EDIABAS INPA ELDI NCS NFS à EDIABAS Tool32. In

the configuration menu, select Ediabas. There, you will find the desired information in the

interface line.

  1. However, you can also check in the Ediabas.ini (C:EDIABASBIN) to see what

interface you have installed. For the OBD interface, you will find the line ‘Interface =

STD:OBD’ and for the ADS Interface the line ’Interface = ADS’.

4.8 How do I find out what EDIABAS package is installed?

The version of the currently installed Ediabas package can be seen in the files

C:EDIABASversion.txt or C:EDIABASpackage.pdf.

4.9 How can I uninstall EDIABAS or INPA?

You uninstall INPA by deleting the Ediabas and Inpa folders under C:.

Reason: No registry entries are made during the installation.

4.10 How can tell if the EDIABAS server is running as a 16-bit or a 32-bit

application?

Under Windows 95 and 98, the EDIABAS server runs as a 16-bit version. The can be

recognised by the yellow in the task bar.

Frequently Asked Questions

BMW Group about

EDIABAS, INPA and the Tool Set Page 28 of 32

TI-430 Andreas Schandl Release date: 29.09.2006

Under Windows NT4 and XP, the EDIABAS server runs as a 32-bit version. This can be

recognised by the green in the task bar.

Note:

As of 2003, there is the EDIABAS Version 6.4. This can also run as a 32-bit application

under Windows 95/98 and XP.

4.11 What is the difference between EDIABASbinToolSet.exe and

EDIABAbinTool32.exe?

Tool32.exe is current and when it is started, the Ediabas server will start as a 32-bit

application. ToolSet.exe is an old version and is required under Windows 3.11.

4.12 What is an SGBD and what is its connection to EDIABAS?

The controller description files (SGBD) contain the controller-specific know-how. Each SGBD

contains the order telegram of the respective controller and decodes its reply telegrams. In

the process, the raw data (bytes) is converted into directly useable variables (Data types: int,

long, real, string), i.e the error code is converted into error text.

For each controller variation, there is exactly one variation-specific SGBD.

The SGBDs are loaded and interpreted by the EDIABAS runtime system by an application

programme when the order is issued. The file name of the SGBD (without extension) is the

name with which the application programme addresses a controller variation or controller

group.

4.13 Where are the individual SGBD names and their meanings given in

plain English?

Click the “Show” Version List SGBD button on the ”Dienste Tool” interface. There will be a

list of all SGBDs by name with the current version number, the person responsible at BMW,

and the name of the associated controller. It is only possible to access the version list when

the network is in operation or it can be viewed at \smuc0900ReferenzReferenz.sgbd.

4.14 What is a Job?

Jobs are services that EDIABAS provides. They aren't hard coded in EDIABAS, but are a

main component of each SGBD.

Each job has a fixed name and any number of results. Jobs are independent of each other.

There is no data exchange between jobs.

A job corresponds to a function with one complete order. It usually reads data from a

controller, analyses it and returns results that can be used directly by different applications.

A job normally works with one diagnostics telegram (multiple in exceptional cases).

Frequently Asked Questions

BMW Group about

EDIABAS, INPA and the Tool Set Page 29 of 32

TI-430 Andreas Schandl Release date: 29.09.2006

4.15 What do SGBDs with the name _xxx mean?

SGBDs that begin with “_” (e.g. _LWS5), contain jobs that are only intended for development

(e.g.: writing the ident data). These SGBDs are not used in production or in customer service.

4.16 What is the group file used for?

Among other things, INPA uses group files to select the respective SGBD. The group

identifies the controller and starts the corresponding SGBD. The choice is made using the

diagnostics, and as of E65 using the variation index in addition.

The group files are located in C:EDIABASECU and have the following naming convention:

D_00xx.grp were assigned up to the E65; xx = the controller address; For example:

D_0032.grp = transmission. The name D_??????.grp is assigned after the E65 and is

legible; for example D_KLIMA.grp or D_MOTOR.grp, etc.

Updating the group files as of the E65 has changed since February 2004. The table with the

information about which controller must load which SGBD, depending on the diagnostics and

variation index, was moved from the group file to an external table. At runtime, the swappedout

table C:ECUT_GRTB.prg is used. Therefore, it is now only necessary to update this

table and not D_??????.prg.

Additional Information for SGBD Developers:

In the file STD_GRTB.b2s, the diagnostics and variation indexes of the individual SGBDs

can be seen as well as the group file to which the respective SGBD is assigned. You can

find the file STD_GRTB.b2s on drive smuc0900sg in directory ReferenzEdiabasInclude.

4.17 Diagnostics Index

  1. a) Who creates it? Reinhold Drexel, TI-430
  2. b) What is it used for? Identification of the controller
  3. c) When does it change? When a new SGBD is due

4.18 Variation Index

  1. a) Who creates it? Data handling team
  2. b) What is it used for? Identification of the ECU
  3. c) When does it change? When the SGBD and/or the PABD changes (PABD, if

something in ECU programming changes), e.g. if the

authentication changes or a timing has changed).

4.19 What is the meaning of the file EDIABAS.ini?

Ediabas.ini is the configuration file. Normally, no changes must be made here after the

installation. One reason for a change to Ediabas.ini is, for example, if you want to work with

a simulation file, i.e. there doesn’t have to be a ECU.

The Ediabas.ini can be found in the EdiasbasBin directory.

EcuPath:

The group files (d_*.grp) and SGBDs (*.prg) are found in the path given for EcuPath. In the

developer versions, it also contains *.b2v, *.b2s and *.txt files.

SimulationPath:

Frequently Asked Questions

BMW Group about

EDIABAS, INPA and the Tool Set Page 30 of 32

TI-430 Andreas Schandl Release date: 29.09.2006

The path given in the SimulationPath is where the simulation files are located for groups

(d_*.sim) and for SGBDs (*.sim), which are only relevant to SGBD and INPA developers.

TracePath:

If ApiTrace and/or lfhTrace are activated, then the traces will be stored there with api.trc and

ifh.trc.

TraceSize:

You can set the size of the trace files ApiTrace and IfhTrace. If 1024 is set, then the

maximum size of the file is 1 MB; for 512, it is a maximum of 500 KB.

ApiTrace:

The ApiTrace file is activated by replacing the zero with a number from 1 to 7. The api.trc file

contains the job and result names with their data. If ApiTrace is not needed, this should be

set to zero to increase the performance of EDIABAS. You can find information about the

trace level in the Ediabas documentation.

IfhTrace:

The lfhTrace file is activated by replacing the zero with a number from 1 to 3. The ifh.trc file

only consists of the telegrams that have been sent (INPUT) and received (OUTPUT). If

lfhTrace is not needed, this should be set to zero to increase the performance of EDIABAS.

Simulation:

Simulation is used to check the SGBDs and INPA scripts without being directly connected to

a ECU. This function is activated by changing the zero to 1.

Interface:

You can directly change the interface here. You only have to make the appropriate change

to the line where the interface is entered.

Example:

Interface = STD:OBD, i.e the OBD interface will be used.

Interface = ADS, i.e the ADS interface will be used.

The prerequisite is to have the appropriate driver installed for the interface.

Frequently Asked Questions

BMW Group about

EDIABAS, INPA and the Tool Set Page 31 of 32

TI-430 Andreas Schandl Release date: 29.09.2006

4.20 How is the simulation file connected to the trace file?

There is one simulation file for each ECU. In this file are the ECU’s request and reply

telegrams. This file has the same name as the ECU description file, however it has the

ending “*.SIM” (e.g. DME31.SIM).

There is also a separate simulation file for each interface that is to be simulated. The

filename is made up of the name of the interface with the ending “*.SIM” (e.g. EDIC.SIM).

The setting of the EDIABAS configuration element called Interface will be used as the

interface name. The interface-specific return values are in the interface simulation files.

The trace file records the telegrams that have been sent (INPUT) and received (OUTPUT).

The recording of such traces can be enabled in the Tool Set in the menu bar under

“Configuration” as well as in the Ediabas.ini configuration file.

A simulation file can be automatically created from the ifh.trc trace file by using

trace2sim.exe. This tool is found in \smuc0900sgEdiabasSim trace2sim.exe.

4.21 Why have an XBD Generator?

Before the introduction of the SGBD generator, the source code was edited with a text editor

(up to 40,000 lines). For this purpose, it was necessary to learn the special, C-based

programming language BEST/2 (description language for ECU). Manual programming is

known to be very prone to errors (copy & paste), and it is very difficult to implement the

guidelines specified in the diagnostics specification sheet part 5 as the SGBD becomes

larger.

Now, the SGBD Generator is to be used to create an SGBD by means of menu-driven input

of the data, in which the BMW guidelines are kept. This should result in less effort for the

developer, but it definitely requires a certain amount of practice in working with the SGBD

Generator. A major advantage is the automatic integration of standard ‘include’ files,

whereby new standard ‘includes’ can be added without further ado (new sample XML).

4.22 What are the prerequisites for remote access via TCP/IP?

EDIABAS for WIN32 makes it possible to access the diagnostics interfaces and the attached

ECUs that are connected to another PC. The prerequisite for this is a network connection of

locally and remotely controlled PCs via TCP/IP as well as a WIN32 operating system that is

supported by EDIABAS.

Applications and EDIABAS run on the local PC and the interface handler (IFH) as well as the

IFH-Server run on the PC to be remotely controlled. Before accessing the remotely

controlled PC, the IFH server IFHSRV32.EXE must be started. The remote control is

activated, or alternatively controlled using the EDIABAS configuration file EDIABAS.INI. The

EDIABAS configuration must be performed manually on both PCs.

The EDIABAS configurations TracePath and SimulationPath are not transferred from the

local PC to the remotely controlled PC, rather the respective configurations of the

EDIABAS.INI file that is on the remotely controlled PC is used.

The network protocol TCP (NetworkProtocol entry) as well as a freely selectable port

number must be given on both PCs. The port number must be identical on both PC and

must not collide with other TCP applications (1000 < port number < 30000).

EDIABAS, INPA and the Tool Set Page 32 of 32

TI-430 Andreas Schandl Release date: 29.09.2006

4.23 What is the VC Tool and when is it used?

VC Tool (version check) can be used to check the versions of the files that are created

during the installation of EDIABAS. When it runs, the tool compares the files specified in the

files BMW_bin.pid, BMW_hw.pid and BMW_rest.pid with regard to their creation data and

creation time. That way, changes made incorrectly in the EDIABAS files can be detected and

corrected.

After running, the VC Tool creates a text file called VC.log in which the comparison is given

with the specific results. This file is stored in the directory where the VC Tool is found

(C:EDIABAS).

4.24 What is the KVP Editor?

KVP stands for continuous improvement process. The KVP Editor can be called when using

the INPA Tool. This is mainly used in reworking and in the plant. Here, the user has the

possibility to enter his name and telephone number and then enter an error description and

improvement request and then to send the form directly to the person responsible at BMW.
