BMW ICOM Using Tips (Questions and Answers)

 

What is ICOM B?

bmw-icom-rheingold-ista-d-ista-p-user-guide-001

 

BMW ICOM B is a diagnostic head unit for all BMW cars with MOST optical port. It is connected with USB cable to a ICOM A1, A2, NEXT A diagnostic head. Used for diagnostic faults, error clearing, coding and programming units.

 

On a side note, BMW ICOM A is a diagnostic head unit for all BMW cars and motorcycles. It is connected with network cable to a computer and by OBD connector to a car. Used for diagnostic faults, error clearing, coding and programming units.

How to connect ICOM B with car?

Put the ICOM B at the USB port from your ICOM main interface.

Open the optical port on ICOM B and connect it to the car. For example on a E92 it is a little bit more right to the diag plug under the steering stock (a black plastic plate should be removed).

 

Here you can see the optical plug, remove the lenscap before you use it.

 

The location can be found in ISTA and is depending on the cars type you are working.

 

How to use ICOM B for initial use:

 

Before flashing anything with a new ICOM-B for the first time, I recommend doing a stress test with Tool32.

 

Configure Ediabas to most async ab 625, open Tool32 and cicr.prg.

Then select job fs_lesen

and then from Tool32 top bar, select "play".

This will make the "read error memory" job run on repeat.

If it can do it for 30-60 minutes, then the head is probably ok.

 

Obviously the ICOM emulator must be connected to the CIC.

When you make a flashing , you can confirm data communication in task managers.

And, ICOM B, green flashes on and off.

bmw-icom-rheingold-ista-d-ista-p-user-guide-003

 

 

How to read LED info from ICOM B?

 

The ICOM B includes a (2) two LED display. These LED|s displays the following information

and warnings:

  • One 2-color LED label SYSTEM for the general status:

Off -------------------------------- no power or problems with power supply

Yellow ----------------------------- initializing ICOM B

Red flashing ---------------------- problems with booting/initializing

Green ----------------------------- ready

Green flashing -------------------- communication

  • One 2-color LED label MOST for the status of MOST communication Ethernet:

Off --------------------------------- no light at MOST

Red -------------------------------- no lockable light

Green ------------------------------stable LOCK

Yellow *---------------------------- no stable LOCK

 

* Yellow = the relevant LED lights up simultaneously red and green.

 

BMW ICOM Using Tips (Questions and Answers):

bmw-icom-rheingold-ista-d-ista-p-user-guide-03

 

Question: Super ICOM freeze when boot, what’s the requirement to the computer?

bmw-icom-rheingold-ista-d-ista-p-user-guide-04

 

A:  Requirements:

Reset the computer system date and time to the current time; set to achi mode; run at another computer, advise you use Lenovo or Dell with CPU 2.0 above and memory with 4GB.

 

Q: yes, I do as you advised above, my computer is Lenovo w700. Cpu - core 2 extreme, and 4G ram, I tried 3 computers and tried ACHI, ATA and compatible, but no luck.

bmw-icom-rheingold-ista-d-ista-p-user-guide-05

 

A: advise you use our special xp or win7. Download at:

win7: https://share.weiyun.com/59Noy7p  password: 0awk7b

win xp: https://share.weiyun.com/5VP1mxN password: 1zkboe

 

Note: Please do not update ICOM, otherwise it will not work, for example when I click “Diagnose” the system will get prompt saying “send email to obtain ISTA/D license, license warning.”, then the diagnostic function and programming not work. The solution is to send back main unit to the supplier.

 

Q: ICOM A2 (SP168-BA) hardware not work, when I use Ista NextSTART to program, communication failed, not communicate with the vehicle, I tried 6 vehicles and no luck, diagnose Mini Moris is working, then I tried BMW E60 failed. I use my friend ICOM to run my software and verified it can diagnose, I test cable and no problem, I reinstalled the firmware and tested it works.

 

A: Test the 39k resistance. If you find ICOM or ICOM A2 fail to work on old BMW or one system or new car, just disassemble ICOM and test this 39K resistance. Another reason is unstable voltage.

After open ISTA-P, click “Reset settings”, then close, open again ISTA-P, click “ Reset Settings” then reset “Resolution”.

Not all, better have obdstar DP Plus (has newest updates)

 

Here an example of X300M on Kia Sportage 2017 odometer.

Is it possible by obd2?

Answer: 

You can do it by OBD by Smok or X-Tool, but cheapest solution is ObdStar X300M. I am sure as I have all of them tools myself.
