BMCables INPA problems

Recommended Posts


Hi guys,

I’ve got a BMCables diagnostic cable that I've had for a while and haven’t had any problems with it in the past. I’ve just needed to use it on a new car (2009 E61) and can’t seem to get it working, I’m getting an IFH-0009 error running INPA.
  • Windows 10 64-bit
  • Windows XP 32-bit
  • Windows XP 64-bit
Have tried:
  • AV & firewall off for installation and running the software.
  • Running Windows without driver signature verification enabled.
  • The red light is on the cable
  • INPA is showing a black dot for battery and ignition
  • The cars ignition is definitely on
  • Used the DCAN software to make sure the cable is set to K-line mode
  • OBDSetup.exe comes back OK
  • Switch on silver cable to left hand side.
  • FTDI drivers were installed
  • The cable shows up as a ‘BMcables diagnostic cable’ using driver 16/08/2017 v2.12.28.0 in Device Manager.
  • Using the BimmerWorld (I think) version of INPA
Can anyone provide any pointers?
