1.How to use K+DCAN cable for BMW airbag ECU replacement

Step-by-step instruction on BMW airbag ECU replacement:
 
NOTE: 
Follow the instruction below AT YOUR OWN RISK.
1. Remove the battery negative cable.
 
2. To remove the rear cup holder lift up the rear vent (1) and pull the cup holder (2) out. 
3. Pull down the rear vent (1) and remove.
 
4. Remove the two screws and two nuts circled in red.
5. Remove the armrest and the tray under it.
 
6. Remove the two easily accessible nuts holding the airbag control module. 
7. The third is a bit tricky to get to. It can be access via the hole circled in red. In the first picture you can barely make out the nut. In the second I've pushed the rear air duct to gain access to the nut. Any of my sockets didn't fit through the hole so I had to put the extension through it and then install the socket on it inside the center console. A bit tricky to do, but not too bad.
8. Remove the Airbag ECU connector. This type of connector is used in number of places on your e39. You'll need to pull the green locking clip towards the rear of the car to release it. If you want to practice how to do it you can find similiar connector on Cd-changer, NAV computer etc.
 
9. Take out the old Airbad ECU and install the new one. Remember to put back the grounding wire under the nut (1).
 
10. Assemble everything back together. To install the third nut put a piece of paper between the socket and the nut so the nut won't fall off.
 
11. Code the new Airbag ECU. I did this with NCS Expert. A great how to code with NCS expert can be found at http://obd2-diag.blogspot.com/2016/06/bmw-coding-with-ncs-expert-user-solution.html
2.How to install BMW INPA on Win 7 Win 8 32 or 64 bit
How-to: install BMW INPA 5.0.6 software on Windows 7 or Windows 8 32 bit or 64 bit to get it to work with a K+DCAN cable.
 
Software version: INPA 5.0.6
 
Operation system:
Windows 7 32 or 64 bit
Windows 8 32 or 64 bit
 
Installation tips and guides:
STEP 1: INSTALLING BMW STANDARD TOOLS
STEP 2: INSTALLING INPA
STEP 3: INSTALLING NCSEXPERT IN ENGLISH
STEP 4: INSTALLING & CONFIGURATING DCAN INPA CABLE
STEP 5: CHANGING THE OBD.INI
STEP 6: SPDATEN FILES
 
 
In detail...
 
STEP 1: INSTALLING BMW STANDARD TOOLS
 
Download and install BST 212
Since BST (BMW Standard Tools) was designed for Win XP 32bit operating
Systems, users have faced issues with tools like WinKFP and NCSExpert since Win
7 64bit systems have been introduced. Running in XP compatibility mode just
wasn't enough. Presenting you with several errors or not running at all. Only
solution was to install on a XP system or like me... XP VMware. Well that all
changed with BST 2.12 which works on 32 or 64bit systems.
WIN 7/8, 32/64bit OS
 
STEP 2: INSTALLING INPA software
 
(will need it after coding certain modules such as DME for CAS
or EWS Alignment)
Download and install my version of INPA 5.06 with Fxx Support by simply
replacing the existing folders with the folders provided in the
Replace C:\EC-Apps\INPA
Replace C:\EDIABAS
 
STEP 3: INSTALLING NCSEXPERT IN ENGLISH
 
Download and install NCSEXPER32_ENG.zip
Copy and replace contents in the .zip file with contents in C:\NCSEXPER\BIN. Now
NSCExpert is in English but you will find the Hot Keys do not work. This is a bug a
fellow MHH member discovered and haven't really worked on trying to fix it so for
the time being just click on the F# key with your mouse.
Not done yet with NCSExpert. Need to import profiles to NCSExpert. How? well
download the PFL.zip and copy and replace all contents from PFL.zip
to [b]C:\NCSExpert\PFL. (you will also find a lot more PFL's by searching for
NCSExpert profiles in Google)
Now you have a working WinKFP and NCSExpert with profiles loaded on your PC
we can continue to Step 4.
 
STEP 4: INSTALLING & CONFIGURATING DCAN INPA CABLE
 
Configure your DCAN/INPA cable. If you followed my steps correctly than your
EDIABAS should already be configured to STD:OBD for use with the INPA cable. If
not you can download ediabas-konfigurator from here if it is not already in
your C:\EDIABAS\Ediabas-Konfigurator folder. This tool allows you to easily
change the ediabas.ini to your desired interface. So if you are switching
from INPA to E-Sys you could use this to switch from STD:OBD to ENET.
Now to set your COM Port we must first find which COM port is being used for
your cable.
Connect your cable to your PC (some may require a 12v supply to power the
cable)
Allow the device drivers to install (for best driver use the driver that came with
your cable. If not then let windows install the best suitable driver for it)
Navigate to Control Panel, Device Manager, and scroll to Ports (COM & LPT)...look at the pic
npa-windows-7-8-install-1
So in my case it's COM5. So we need to change this in the obd.ini file located in
the c:\ediabas\bin folder. But first lets make some changes to the cable.
Right click on your INPA cable driver for example mine is labelled "USB Serial
Port" and click on properties. Now in the property window click on the advanced
tab.
inpa-windows-7-8-install-2
Now every driver is different but the important part is the settings such as latency
timer and received and transmit bytes. See pic bellow for the ideal settings. You
may also change the COM port number here as well for tutorial I left it at 5. Once
your changes are done we can proceed by clicking OK to accept the changes. No
close all windows to return to the desktop.
inpa-windows-7-8-install-3
 
STEP 5: CHANGING THE OBD.INI
 
Navigate to C:\EDIABAS\BIN and find file obd.ini and open it with an editor such
as notepad.
First 3 lines will look like this...
[OBD]
Port=Com1
Hardware=USB
So we need to change the Port to reflect our INPA cable which in our case is COM
port 5. So change it to look like this...
[OBD]
Port=Com5
Hardware=USB
When done click File -> Save and exit out.
Very important to remember which USB port you connected your cable to as
plugging it into a different USB port will allocate the INPA cable to a different
COM port and neither tool will see the cable until the original USB port is used
again or changed in device manager and obd.ini as mentioned above.
Now to test if your cable installed correctly. Plug it into the vehicle's OBD port and
open INPA. You should look like this...
If not follow the above steps again and correct your error.
 
STEP 6: SPDATEN FILES
 
Download and install SPDaten files of your choice (always recommend the latest)
in this case it is 51.2. Once downloaded you can now follow the instructions
provided bellow labelled "How_to_start_WinKFP.pdf" this will explain how to
import the SPDaten files to WinKFP.
 
Edit to update:
For NCSExpert to install or update the daten files, copy the files from SP-daten-
E##\daten to the C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\E##\ (where E## is whatever chassis
you're updating). You will also want to copy the files from SP-daten-
E##\SGDAT to C:\NCSEXPER\SGDAT (they're not separated into different chassis
in NCS Expert, so you just want to copy and paste everything to that directory.
Overwrite everything it asks about). Then copy the files from SP-daten-E##\ECU
to C:\EDIABAS\ECU
After copying the daten files to c:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\E## copy the following files
to the following locations:
copy C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\E##\*.000 C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\
copy C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\E##\*.DAT C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\
copy C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\E##\*.ASC C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\
