    Hi,

    I have a 1999 E46 320d and I can only see the round connector (OBD1) on my car. I am interested in getting the codes scanned my self but all the readers found on the web (except the dedicated BMW ones) are either only OBD2 or OBD1 via the serial port. I havent owned a computer with a serial port in atleast 5 years :(

    So I'm really curios (sorry if I'm asking something obvious, but I cant figure it out), can a OBD2 scanner work with the "short connector" technique to read data from an OBD1 port ?

    Cheers,

    Follow the guide in post 1 step by step using a VAGCOM lead with 20 pin convertor and you will be able to use INPA with your vehicle.

    Hi

    Asking for a friend who is looking to buy an adaptor.

    Has anyone managed to get INPA working on a 2007+ K-CAN car?

    If so, do you set the baud rate to 100kbps in a file somewhere and use a K-CAN adpator?

    Thanks

    Yea, I'm pretty sure I have, with the usual OBD lead.
    The dual can bit is only for some programming, but code reading is fine.

    I've got an OBD regular lead I use all the time, a dual can one which works the same but I've only used once or twice, and never needed it, and an ADS/OBD one, but never got the ADS bit working right.


    The regular OBD lead works fine on most stuff after 1995, 328s etc, I don't think I've had any problems getting into ABS systems etc

    Yep, the reset rarely works, in the real one, it'll bridge wires for a few secs, it's not really a data thing.

    You should be fine doing the paperclip grounding of what I think is pin 7 for a few secs

    Mate there is a SI reset pin (7) on the diagnostic connector you just need to GND it for a count. 5-8 seconds service lights, 9-15 seconds Fluids service (the little clock icon). Google BMW SI reset htttp://www.unofficialbmw.com/repair_faqs/sil.html.

    Don't fluff it up by getting the pins wrong, as the neighbour pins 17, 18 are populated with stuff you really, seriously, don't want to GND. The connector is marked with pin numbers but it's not always clear, so double triple check by counting and checking populated pins lien up with the diagram.

    I don't know how to reset it with INPA.

    TheEnd> Good to know, cheers . I think the 1996+ M3 ABS is new-gen K-line but the 328i etc still needs ADS. I've also bought recently a J2534 "passthru" adaptor for MrsJL's Toyota and will one day try hooking it up to the BMW to see what happens.

    Guys,

    I'm battling through this process to get INPA/EDIBAS working on Windows 7 (64bit) and need 6.4.7 and 5.0.2 - I have tried to download it from this site, but the password 'bimmerforums' no longer works? Has anyone any idea of the new password?

    4shared - An EasyDis Machine - shared folder - free file sharing and storage

    I have to say, I've spent hours digging through many many posts to get this to work on Windows 7 and can't find anything absolutely accurate and definitive!

    If it's Ediabas v6.4.7 and INPA v5.02 that you want to run, then i can help you with this. Drop me a PM, for a link... (I’m not sure how the administration and moderation team feel, about direct links.)

    Windows 7 32bit has only been officially supported since BMW Standard Tools v2.10.0 (19th October 2009), but all of the older versions will install and run, under XP SP2 compatibility mode. All post-2003 programs can be made to install and run on a 64bit Windows OS, with the exception of NCS, but you're better-off running a 32bit OS (and patching it to remove the 4GB RAM limit) - it's just easier.

    Thanks very much Well I finally found a download that seems to have correctly installed 6.4.7 and 5.0.2, it runs in native Windows 7 or XP compatibility mode but I am yet to test it actually connected to the car - however I notice that there isn't an E46 option on the front INPA page? Should I not have upgraded INPA to the latest version>
