a quick update, all works now :driving:

I'll update.the guide with my findings and send it to you Dave
Any chance of a quick summary of how you fixed the issue as I am undertaking this soon and possibly before the guide is updated.

hi, sure

- I only used Expert mode profile to code all along (see above my request to Dave to send me his profiles)
- since I didn't have FRM I used NFRM to add the Vehicle Order
- after adding VO to CAS and NFRM instead of Process Car I re-coded every ECU listed one by one, somehow it felt that Process Car finished too quickly and also a guy suggested this in a post at another forum
- here exit NCSExper, turn off car, take out key, wait 10+ secs
- and I didn't have to use Tool32 to recalibrate DCS, because I didn't have any fault code at all (I don't know why it was like that, it might be that during my previous coding attempts I ran Tool32, but then it had no effect)

I ended up using Easy BMW Tools from here https://mega.nz/#F!YE82wDha!MTgUZTlrpxN ... g!5McjmQpK - lots of other good stuff there

I hope this helps, I'll try to update the doc asap, good luck

Cheers man....that's really helpful.

Just a quick question, possible for Dave - in the last step of the coding (before resetting the steering angle sensor) where the big list of modules are coded (to tell the car the retrofit is there), what is actually getting coded to these modules?

Is it information taken from the VO that gets written to the other modules?

It all makes sense to me up to that point, but this step I just can't figure out what is being coded.

it may be that specific VO codes trigger specific functions in different ECUs and that's the reason, so a new VO code is propagated all the way down

How-To - e89 Cruise Control Retro-fit

Post by Z4Sparky » Mon Mar 25, 2019 7:06 pm

Just a quick question regarding the stalks.

Just bought some from an E90 with part no. : 61319123041

I checked realoem and that says this is for a car with MFSW, rain sensor and Cruise control, so seems exactly what I need and a snip at £45, but just not sure if it will work as its a different part no. to the version for the Z4 (61319123049).

Anyone got any thoughts if this will be okay? Or should I just buy the correct part no.?

probably. there's enough commonality between those two vehicle lists for those parts, but sometimes its not obvious why there's a difference.. Give it a go. Its not too hard to take it out if thats the case.

Using the excellent guide on page one, I've successfully installed CC on my 2014 2.0 E89. It seems to work perfectly, apart from the minor detail of the error message "cruise control failure". :D

Would you have any idea where I have gone wrong, clearing the fault is only a temporary solution.

Right guys sorry for no comments back but for some reason I'm no longer receiving notifications for this thread, don't know why as I was before.

Right, I'm going to go through them as much as I can.
Firstly though the guide is made up of other information I found along the way, not all entirely my work.

tintoverano, you've done well :thumbsup: as you've spotted FRM isn't in the e89 list it's NFRM as you've spotted.
I'll be looking at another update on it again to rectify the problems you've noticed.

Z4Sparky, yes that stalk assembly should be fine as long as you have auto lights and auto wipers then it'll do the job.

sounds great :thumbsup:

also, please put a note to the beginning of the first doc: don't close the boot after disconnecting the battery :headbang: :D

not seen this message when I installed it. If its all "working" but producing an occasional error (does this happen every time you run it after clearing it?), its something a little more subtle than an installation error I would assume.

No can't say I've seen this before either.
As long as the physical connections are correct and the VO and the FSW_PSW.TRC are correctly written and you've run Tool32 correctly then it should be fine. the only other thing could be a faulty stalk, but I doubt that.
