Airbag Module Coding NCS Expert

Post by colb » Sat May 14, 2022 11:40 pm

Ongoing problem with Youdy's 3,0l Z4 2003 that had an internal fault code for the centre airbag module, have put a used module in this afternoon and coded it using NCS Expert, airbag light won't go out despite clearing codes. We are getting a code on the replacement module for incorrect Vin Number which is surprising as it appeared to code ok using NCS Expert. We are coding the SIM85 module with NCS Expert. Using the same sequence as I did when I coded a Z3's airbag module and that coded ok first go.
Have read some of the old posts on here and can't see why we can't get the light to go off it seems we are doing it right from the details seen in the old posts. If anyone has any suggestions we are all ears.

2-You'll see a list of all control units with their ZUSB number and VIN
3-Print to PDF the report.
4-Identify the ZUSB numbers without your VIN and copy from the PDF and close INPA

WinKFP: Edit VIN and Flash Module
5-Open WinKFP (Load SPDaten files google it)
6-Select comfort mode
7-Then click find ZUSB
8-Paste the number you copied
9-this will go straight to the right ZUSB
10-Then enter your full VIN and then click on done
11-Double check that the module your going to flash it's safe to flash with your cable and the battery needs to be connect to another power source
12-Click on update ZUSB (this will flash the module with SPDaten files and re-write the VIN)

NCExpert: Code to Default
13- Open NCExpert
14-Load profile -> Expertmode -> F1 -> F3 -> choose E60 from the list -> choose any module you want from this list -> now click F6 Back -> select F4 Process ECU -> choose Module -> now click ReadECU -> close the notepad window that showed up after the module was read.
15-Press F5 for basic functions -> Select "coapiReadSgGetFswPsw" and click Ok -> Select F2 "job" select SG_CODIEREN and press ok -> Press F3 Execute job and wait for the buttons to become active, when active it's all done.

INPA: Identification Report and Clear Errors

This is what I did when I had to recode my airbag module. I followed the same guide I think but found a couple of differences on my e85:
