Bimmercode App
 
TVPostSound listed some expert coding that I saved for a cheatsheet. I add to it as I find new coding procedures. This is what I have saved so far.

Bimmercode Expert Mode:

Add as you wish, but only tested and working functions.

NON UJ Brake Force Display BLINKING
https://www.northamericanmotoring.co...-blinking.html

Activate Rear Fog Lights:
3068 NSL_Verbaut = Verbaut

Code first, then cycle ignition, then restart Bimmercode for the below options
to show up

Activate Rear Fog Lights feature for lighting switch:
3064 Mapping_Nebelschlussl_L_output = nsl_l
3064 Mapping_Nebelschlussl_L_Function = nebelschlusslicht
3064 Mapping_Nebelschlussl_R_output = nsl_r
3064 Mapping_Nebelschlussl_R_Function = Nebelschlusslicht

Close windows, sunroof & mirror from key fob:
3056 KOMFORTSCHLIESSUNG_FB = aktiv 00

Turn off window roll-up door interrupt when ignition off, and door is being opened:
3050 FH_TUERAUF_STOP_MAUT =aktiv

Disable Active Sound Design
3000 ASD_SOUND_OFF = aktiv

Display Tire Pressure & Temperature in Vehicle Info:
3001 RDC_SAFETY = aktiv

enabling foglights with high beams.
BDC Module
3068 NSW_AUS_BEI_FL nicht aktiv

It translates to fog lights OFF with high beams (default is aktiv)
So you double negative the response to leave on.

Enable Illumination of Exterior Door Handle LEDs when in Reverse
3070 OVT_BEI_REUCKFAHRLICHT =aktiv

Change momentary turn signal to 5 blinks. - Unconfirmed if this works
3069
PIA_DEFAULT_TIPPBLINKEN =FUENFMAL

Enable JCW Tach in HUD (I found this on another site, so if you try it and it doesn't work let me know)
HU_NBT > EXPERT MODE > HUD_SPORTANZEIGE_ENABLE, HUD_SPORTANZEIGE_FES_ENABLE, and HUD_SPORTANZEIGE_MS_GASSE_ENABLE to AKTIV.

Code

Then
KOMBI > EXPERT MODE > FZG_Aussttang,HUD _SPORTANZEIGE_ENABLE, HUD_SPORTANZEIGE_FES_ENABLE, and HUD_SPORTANZEIGE_MS_GASSE_ENABLE to AKTIV.

Code

Rear Fogs as Brake Lights: (This hasn't been checked on a car w/rear fogs working)

BDC_BODY
3065 LceLampMapping4, ED
Funktionen
MAPPING_BREMSL_2_L_OUTPUT
Switch to this
nsl_l (this is the rear fog light choice)

You need to do this for right and left. Above is for left,
For RHS just change the l to r

MAPPING_BREMSL_2_R_OUTPUT
nsl_r__________________


When adding new Union Jack tail lights to earlier Gen 3 cars...

Coded the indicators in the basic mode - to not monitor and set to LED.

Then, Stephan from Bimmercode gave me the following to do in expert mode:

BL_R_IS_LED => aktiv
BL_R_WARMUEBERWACHUNG => nicht_aktiv
BL_R_KALTUEBERWACHUNG => nicht_aktiv

BL_L_IS_LED => aktiv
BL_L_WARMUEBERWACHUNG => nicht_aktiv
BL_L_KALTUEBERWACHUN => nicht_aktiv

Thanks for starting a new one!!

There are some that still don't understand how Bimmercode works.
Yes, there are pretty little switch graphics to change options, but they are limited, and do not always work. These are shortcuts, or macros, the author has chosen to give you. He tries to update that as best he can.

The basis for this app is buried in EXPERT MODE.
Expert mode is EVERYTHING that can be done to your MINI.
The app reads your modules, and lists ALL functions.
You need to understand German, as that is what the modules spit out GERMAN!!

I personally don't like the shortcuts, I like EXPERT MODE, as I have full control.
Thats why, I listed expert mode settings.

Thank you

I found this on another site and tried it out. It works! I'll post a picture

Rear Fogs as Brake Lights:

Finally! Man I’m such a slacker.

Rear fogs coded to work as another set of brake lights

Minnie.the.Moocher 12-13-2017 07:25 AM

First thing on my list to do is Rear fogs/brake light! F56

Wonder how do you code on a Justa F55 with only one rear fog? R/L ?

1200K 12-16-2017 02:26 PM

Just adding another data point on the addition of rear fogs as brake lights -- a few moments ago I successfully coded the function without issues on my '17 Clubman S All4. The update was made using a vGate Wifi iCar2 Elm327 OBD adapter and the bimmercode app running on an iPad.

The car is not factory-equipped to operate the rear fogs, and thus lacks a dashboard switch. I "activated" the rear fogs in a coding first-step, and then coded their use as rear brake lights, per the steps offered by Mini_Vinnie (and now included in the main thread entry above). All went fine, no error codes or other issues.

For the F54, I think this is a big deal. The low-mounted bumper brake lights are less than confidence-inspiring when you've got a truck tailgating on the expressway (all too common here, unfortunately).

On another forum, someone from the UK who made the same update, and whose car _is_ factory-equipped with the rear fogs dashboard switch, indicated that when the switch is activated, the fogs are steady "on," and when the switch is off, the fogs then function as brake lights. So at least the controller seems smart enough to differentiate. I won't be able to confirm unless/until I get the dashboard switch.

Anyway -- thanks, very happy!

Minnie.the.Moocher 12-16-2017 02:49 PM

I coded mine as well today on the F56. Bimmercode is a pleasure compared to ESYS.

On the F54 are the fogs just two sections on the bottom row of lights? And if so has anyone figured out how to code the tail lights on the doors to act as brake lights?

handn has done it. I think with ESYS.

There's this:

Yep, the link provided in the first post in that thread first planted the seed in my mind for getting that coding done.

Minnie, the F54ís fog lights are in the rear doors, between the tail lights and the reverse lights. Nicely higher than the bumper lenses. Thereís a photo in the thread at minif56.com.

Minnie.the.Moocher 12-17-2017 08:07 AM

On your F54 did you try one of the other settings such as, fra_h_l (I THINK this is for turn signals) ??

I would love to know if the large area lights up. Either way it is good to know that the F54 is capable of brakes at eye level.

Do you also have the fog switch?

Mini_Vinnie 12-17-2017 10:38 AM

Nope, just for my fronts

Id rather have rear brakes lights anyhow

No, I didn't try that. The F54 owner in the UK, who posted the thread on making the fog light update for his F54 (post #1 in http://www.minif56.com/forum/825-min...ts-coding.html), does mention that it's possible to run the rear tail lights in similar fashion. However, apparently they work as "brake" lights only if not already on (as when parking/headlights are on), much in the same way that the fog lights return to their normal function when activated by the dashboard switch. For me, that would limit their usefulness, and I suspect they would not be as readily visible, being much dimmer than the fogs. So I just focused on the fogs to this point...and was glad to get that done!

punkgeek 12-25-2017 01:42 PM

Hmm - I'm trying to get rear fogs to work as brake lights in my F56 (I have the bulbs but not the switch)

Are these only three things I need to change?
* 3065 LceLampMapping4 MAPPING_BREMSL_2_L_OUTPUT
* 3065 LceLampMapping4 MAPPING_BREMSL_2_R_OUTPUT
* 3068 NSL_Verbaut

Because I changed these three things and the fogs still aren't lighting with the brakes. Any advice would be appreciated.

Minnie.the.Moocher 12-25-2017 02:58 PM

Did you do the 3068 and cycle the car ignition off?

Also the 3065 change output to nsl_l or r

worked for me.

I did (I thought ;-) - I'll double check. Thanks.

When I did mine ( my coding is in the 1st post) I never did anything with 3068

3068 tells the module there is a switch present.
You might not need this..

To answer my own question - I just selected both L & R and changed them to nsl_l or r. It worked fine and I didn't do the 3068 on this car and it wasn't an issue.

Coded Display Tire Pressure & temp, works !

Coded Hu NBT Enable Video, works, not sure why we need this.

Coded Import routes into Navi_trip_import but don't have any idea how this works yet. Will leave it to wife to figure out if it does anything.

Couldn't find Speech_2_text , not sure if it is available on this car.

GooGoomuc 01-04-2018 06:47 AM

I just downloaded the Bimmer app. Connected and having a look around, I would like to try this code out . Where do l look for the first part of coding?

Activate Rear Fog Lights:
3068 NSL_Verbaut = Verbaut

Code first, then cycle ignition, then restart Bimmercode for the below options
to show up

Activate Rear Fog Lights feature for lighting switch:
3064 Mapping_Nebelschlussl_L_output = nsl_l
3064 Mapping_Nebelschlussl_L_Function = nebelschlusslicht
3064 Mapping_Nebelschlussl_R_output = nsl_r
3064 Mapping_Nebelschlussl_R_Function = Nebelschlusslicht

Is in under BDC_body? Sorry Im a newbie.
Thanks

Yep, most of the codes are in BDC_body but you might have to go into expert mode though.

Remember, if you dont have a toggle switch to activate the rear fogs then it is a pointless thing to code because it wont do anything

GooGoomuc 01-04-2018 08:52 AM

damn, I don't have switch. thanks for the info. What about making the rear fogs work with the break lights?

Mini_Vinnie 01-04-2018 09:01 AM

To get to expert mode, you need to buy the option. I dont remember the exact cost, less than $50 but it is completely worth it.

The app has a lot of great "free" features but to get to the good stuff that is mentioned in here is based on having access to the Expert Mode options

GooGoomuc 01-04-2018 09:05 AM

I have the expert mode options and looking to make the bottom fog lights work with the break lights if its possible, I don't have a toggle switch for the back but do for the front, is it still possible to code following the steps above?

It's been talked about in this thread above, but it is a simple matter of changing the output:

Rear Fogs as Brake Lights:

BDC_BODY
3065 LceLampMapping4, ED
Funktionen
MAPPING_BREMSL_2_L_OUTPUT
Switch to this
nsl_l (this is the rear fog light choice)

You need to do this for right and left. Above is for left,
For RHS just change the l to r

MAPPING_BREMSL_2_R_OUTPUT
