    E39 Indicator flash on unlock

    yes you need to connect to the car, there is no setting up bct will tell you what to do, you dont select anything in bct you select and read the module in ncs then open it in bct, shoulden't get any errors connected to car, if you are then need to know what they are to be able to help, as said above GM3 module, lighting is LCM module, plug into car and try its very easy to follow.

    E39 Indicator flash on unlock

    Use expert v3 (4.01) profile along with bct250, open both and you will see in bct window how to open ncs and read the trace file you need, then go back to bct and load the trace file, then click on translate and you will see all options available just double click it then tick box from not active to active, save file then back to ncs, check its correct job (sg_coderin) and process job, thats it, you cant go wrong if you follow bct direction on screen.
  5. Ok so start from the beginning, have you installed the cable drivers? when you plug cable in check lower right task bar and see what usb is doing, it maybe searching for driver from update and can take a while to do so.
  6. It wont show unless you have the cable plugged into your pc, once plugged in it will load driver and show in com/lpt ports.
  7. will run on windows 10, make sure you have set usb serial port, settings or device manager, com/lpt ports/usb serial port /properties/com/advanced, set comport and latency timer both to 1 and try again.

    Which diagnostics for a beginner

    Hi, You can use either the K+Dcan or E-net cable of your FXX, There both available on ebay for pennies now, my E-Net are £24.99 delivered ebay you can get probable half that price, unfortunatly I had to pay import duty and vat on my where as most ebay ones dont, make sure if you go ebay/amazon route that they supply the software with the cable. either way do some reading on ista and e-sys before you start playing with your car as a beginner. all software is windows based and will run on 7 8 and 10.
