    Hi Guys,

    Now I have my car running I'd like to check it over using INPA but I'm having problems talking to the DME's. I have the correct ADS interface and Serial port settings on my laptop, I can connect to other modules on the car with no problems.
    When I try to connect to a DME I get the following message:

    SYS-0002:ECU OBJECT FILE NOT FOUND. Program will be stopped.

    followed by:

    REQUESTED CONTROL UNIT: 'DME17_2R, DM17_2R1' not found. Control unit found: "program will be stopped!

    I'm assuming this is down to my DME having a slightly different firmware than the standard M70 DME? or is it because the actual file INPA/EDIABAS needs to decypher the data is missing ?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I found this on the web which states the S70 uses a 1.7.1 rather than a 1.7.

    BMW DME M1.7, M1.7.1, M1.7.2, M3.1 and M3.3

    The Motronic 1.7 and subfamilies, and the M3 and it’s variants are the next generation of BMW ECUs. The M1.7 was used on the M40, M42 and M70,

    [U]the M1.7.1 was used solely for the S70, used in the BMW 850CSi M1.7.2 was used for the M42 and M43 4 Cylinders. The M3.1 is a 6cyl ECU, used on the early M50 24v engines without VANOS. The M3.3 family were used to run the later 3.8 litre S38b38, the S50 3.0 M3, and the M60 V8s. M3.3.1 included VANOS control, and is used on M50 engines with VANOS, introduced to the E34 and E36 in 1992.

    The answer was the iPo in INPA was looking for the EWS.
    A non EWS iPo has just been released which allows you to view both ECUs at the same time .
    Info here
