Cheap BMW coding software, definition and function

A lot of cheap and power coding software for module coding, module updating, basic scanning etc has been penetrated into BMW market. Following lists some of the coding software and definition/function.

INPA (interpreter for test procedures) is older factory floor diagnostic software, designed to run test procedures. While INPA can be set for English User Interface, most of the Test Procedures, which can be difficult to find, are in German. It is distributed with BMW Standard Tools that implements EDIABAS to perform a host of functions related to testing/reporting/troubleshooting.


BMW Standard Tools – The software suite distributed by BMW Group that contains several interoperating applications and drivers, including NCS Expert, WinKFP, NFS, INPA, and others.


Datens – German for “data sets”. In this context, the term refers to various file types that contain information about the modules found on a given vehicle and how to code them. Datens are distributed as part of ISTA-P software releases, and are typically referred along with the version of ISTA-P they were distributed with. For instance, datens from ISTA-P 2.38 are informally referred to as “v38 datens”.

K+DCAN – subset of the K-line and CANBUS standard. This is the bus standard used by all the systems in BMW (and other late-model) vehicles to communicate with one another. Analogous to a LAN comprised of several computers which all communicate via a standard protocol. A K+DCAN cable is able to connect to an OBD II port and allow another connected device to communicate on the vehicle’s network.


EDIABAS Toolset 32 – Electronic Diagnostic Base System – A proprietary communication protocol/command set developed by BMW and implemented in all their vehicles. All proprietary BMW software uses EDIABAS to communicate with the vehicle.


Module – A standalone computer that performs one or more related, specialized functions in the vehicle. Modules are not centrally located; they are found all throughout the vehicle. Modules communicate with other modules and systems on the CAN network, and implement the EDIABAS standard.


NCS Expert – Software application distributed with BMW Standard Tools that can communicate directly with any module on the CAN network. NCS Expert can, among other things, read the configuration codes from modules and write new configurations to them.


WinKFP— WinKFP is for flashing/reprogramming modules. It will be able to update modules manually, but again, try to avoid it unless necessary. Updates usually contain only minor changes you’ll never really notice in most cases.


E-sys— BMW Coding software for F series. Come be work with BMW ENET (Ethernet to OBD) cable and ICOM emulator.

ISIS–(now known as ISPI) has multiple components to the workshop system. The main server is IBASE (or ISIS). This is the central repository and installation point of all the data.

ISSS–is Integrated Software Service Station. This facilitates the programming sessions and stores the programming data. ISTA/P invokes an available ISSS for a programming session.

BMW Rheingold— a new system for the diagnosis of BMW. Works with E and F series. Come to replace ISTA/D.

ISTA/D (aka Rheingold) is current dealership diagnostic software for all Exx and Fxx cars. ISTA/D is the replacement for older dealership DIS diagnostic software.

ISTA/P–is the replacement for older delaership SSS Program programming software.

ISTA/P & ISTA/D are designed to be used with an ICOM Interface emulator, and with full ICOM A+B+C, you can connect to older cars. The ICOM “C” Connection is for the older BMW ADS 20-pin round “Pacman” connector in Engine Bay. You can find versions of ISTA/D with an ICOM Emulator builtin, that allows you to use it with an ENET Interface for Fxx cars and a DCAN Interface for Exx cars. I don’t know for sure, as I do not do any Exx work, but I doubt ICOM Emulator would work for older ADS connector.v20154-rheingold-ista-d-for-bmw-icom-new-hdd-1BMW Scanner V1.4.0 BMW Scanner V1.4.0 PA-Soft intended to work with BMW 3, 5, 7 series, X3, X5 SUV and Z4 roadster cars.

SP08-C Lexia 3 PP2000 Diagbox fails to communicate issue

Lexia 3 XS Evolution Peugeot Planet PP2000 Diagbox item no SP08-C is the best quality lexia PSA diagnostic tool with original 921815C chip that works excellent on Peugeot 307. But recently one of SP08-C customers reported that his lexia interface cannot communicate with vehicle. engineers have worked out the solution. The solution fits all following 3 situations.

Occasion 1: Connect lexia3 cable with computer but there is no communication with the computer

Occasion 2: Change many vehicles but still cannot read ECU after plugged the lexia cable

Occasion 3: The device can be detected for 1 or 2 times at the beginning, but cannot be detected later.


You have to change the lexia 3 PCB chip marked red below


Please contact customer service and order the SP08-C lexia 3 chip to replace the old one.

Reset 2002 Astra-G ECM Using OPCOM 2010V

OPCOM 2010V Can OBD2 is mainly designed for almost all Opel vehicles diagnostics, even new cars with CAN-BUS based diagnostic, such as Vectra-C, Astra-H and Zafira-B.

OPCOM 2010V Can OBD2

The following part is about how OPCOM 2010V Can OBD2 Opel reset ECM (Engine Control Module) for 2012 Astra-G. You need to set ECM back to its factory default state prior to have a replacement/resetting. Under this case, you can install it into another car.

Hook up OPCOM scan tool to your vehicle and laptop;

You can check that the vehicle is immobilizer equipped – the Immobilizer Function Programmed is grey or not;

Open up the Immobilizer;

Go to “IMMO2 Special Functions”, and you will see “Reset Engine Control Module” function is available;

Click on the button and the swap will start.

Important Note:

  1. After using this function, you may not be able to start the engine.
  2. Each factory default state Engine ECU has some limited running time without immobilizer (max 10 attempts to be exact). After that number, the Engine ECU will lock itself, and no more start is allowed without a fully functioning immobilizer.
  3. before you swap or replace any immobilizer related component (Engine ECU, Immobilizer ECU), you have to reset them first.

The arming of the immobilizer has some delay (usually 5-10 min), so within five or ten minutes, you may be able to start the car. But after this delay expires, you won’t be able to start the engine at all, as the immobilizer will lock the vehicle. An indicator light (SVS, or MIL) will be flashing on the dash, showing an immobilizer related problem.

Kindly Note:

Never Update OPCOM Online, Otherwise Cause Damage!

Only €20 you can get OPCOM serial device back home, additionally offer 2 related products as below:

Autel Maxidas DS708 Diagnostic Scanner views

Autel Maxidas DS708 is not only ascanner tool but also a diagnostic tool. Autel Maxidas DS708 OBD Scanner can reprogram keys after getting the key code from the dealer and providing proof of ownership for free.It can also reset ABS and reprogram certain module on some cars although not all.

Autel Maxidas DS708

How to project Original Autel Maxidas DS708 complete reprogramming capability? This function can’t leave a J2534 tool. However, is it worth to pay the money? Look at below:

Autel Maxidas DS708 complete reprogramming can do idle relearns, calibrate the right seat Occupant Classification System module, and do deep body scans of your entire car/truck. It will be amazed how many items you have for it to scan. The radios on the new cars are VIN coded and this can re-program a replacement to work.A basic OBD2 scanner tool will not do the job anymore.

It does what it needs to do.For some cars/trucks older after 2010 it sometimes needs you to tell it what car it is, yet other times it finds it automatically. Not much problem of issue, but some things don’t work on some cars, because they are still working on the software and updating it a lot. For the Maxidas DS708 software price, however everyoneis getting a smoking hot deal. I just wish it was cheaper than $500 per year to update. The first year is free. The fact that Autel Maxidas DS708 vehicle diagnostic scanner comes with all the connectors needed to work with after 1996 vehicles is awesome. You get basic OBD codes easily displayed with this Autel DS708 scanner.
