    I'd liked to know what fault code 72 in the General Control module is(It at least looks to be code 72 from your pic), did they not say anything about it?

    Yes, it says 0x0048 (72)

    I asked about it but was told it was nothing. Tried to push for an explanation but got nowhere.

    Think it maybe cos they coded cluster but then loaded old settings back into it, overwriting the new coding and causing the error

    Oops!, should have updated this.

    In short i have become deeply illusioned with the BMW dealers aftersales policy.

    Car was booked back in for them to check their initial coding, however they wanted another £100 to check what they did first time although they still insisted it was coded correctly.

    I refused to pay this and insisted they told me what the error showing was. They wheeled out Tech who did the coding who said it was coming from the interior lights (which all work fine and dandy) and to find out what was causing it they would have to strip the whole system and check it bit by bit.

    At this point i lifted my keys and walked out

    Hi Ronnie
    I plan to install indicator stalk with BC button instead of the old one with no BC.
    My mechanic says he is got the latest Bosch diagnostic equipment. but he is not sure how to code the new part..
    Can you please advise what menus he needs to go to?

    cheers

    Have you had a read through this thread, unfortunately I wouldn't have a clue if a Bosch machine could recode the Instrument cluster e.t.c.

    I'd think not though

    DIS is Stealer equipment more, but you may find a Indy that has it or can use the Autologic to do it, I've never done it so it's new to me, if you do get it done then update us and we can safely say that this will be a very good guide

    It will be "a bit" like the "coding" shown later on in here, http://www.bavauto.com/Assets/inst_pages/ins229.pdf

    This is the MODIC coding menu.

    1)Go to ZCS Coding
    2)Select E46 Series
    3)Select Recode or retrofit
    4)Select Kombi
    5)Select Turn Signal
    6)Enable OBC

    If you get an error touch the OBC button to complete the procedure.

    The dealer should charge you around half a hour.
    Hi Ronnie, i am italian and new in this forum, i hope that you can help me.. i ve an 2002 BMW320d e46 whit OBC, my problem is that the hidden menu function 20 (fuel consumption correction) in not available.. i can see only a "------" (instead a value 0750-1250), do you know if i can to activate this function via DIS v44 that i ve installed on my laptop and work fine to coding..i ve request in many many forums but i ve not received a solution... my idea is that the function 20.0 in enable from 1998 to 2001/09 e46 models and after it is disabled, but is only my idea that i ve supposed after read many many forums in the web germany, can you confirm this idea?....because i know that any e46 has this funcion 20 active, and other not has this function..
    thanks and sorry for my bad english

    Well finally, nearly 2 years on from starting this thread i've managed to get my OBC working!!!!!!!

    Despite so called "Professional" BMW dealers looking at the car and charging £100 an hour to code the OBC they could''t activate it.

    On reading many threads online I got interested in the self diagnosing and coding software, and after battling my reservations about a lack of knowledge and fear of bricking the car I purchased a Diagnostic cable and software on ebay for £20 on thursday.

    After a long installation to my laptop of the software, i used Progman SSS v32 and was able to activate it in 5 mins.

    Sorry for reactivating this thread but just thought i'd post on my success.
