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.


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.
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__________________

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

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 ?

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!

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?

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 F54’s fog lights are in the rear doors, between the tail lights and the reverse lights. Nicely higher than the bumper lenses. There’s a photo in the thread at minif56.com.

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.

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!
