    DIY: How to Code new/used ABS module

    I just replaced my ASC ABS module and wanted to give back. I will be posting more in how I diagnosed the problem, ASC and DCS differences, and ASC dis assembly.

    Special thanks to:

    • bluebee: for "Making sense of INPA, EDIBAS, NCSExpert, NCS Dummy, DIS/GT1, Easy DIS & Progman" posting.
    • nutterdog: for the basic steps in the process
    • revtor: for his program/document on NCS Dummy
    • randomy: for how to use my CarSoft cables with INPA / NCP Expert

    Attached is my first draft of how to code the ABS module using NCP Expert. It is really easy, and takes 20 seconds!

    Please let me know of any clarifications or corrections.

    Note: These steps worked for me and if you follow them you do at your own risk.

    You dont need to code the ASC module, just only the DSC module need to be coded........

    And I'm not sure using NCS-expert, the swiss army chainsaw of the BMW coders, is the best tool for the job. DIS -> select module -> code. No accidental recoding or bricking of the whole car.

    In my case, after installing the new module, my abs gave error "23 Equiptment ERROR (Automatic / Manual)" After it was coded it never came back.

    I think the abs (asc or dsc) module still needs to know tranny type, engine type, slip thresholds, etc from coding.

    I couldn't find a working vmware rar, so I went with NCP Expert using carsoft cables.

    Later today I hope to have DIS running.

    the best and safe way to do it is in Progman
    under decode section decode DSC ( or ABS ? dont remember ) module

    When decoding, if require , it will update automatically all the rest of components

    I know NCSExpert is faster but not as safe us Progman
