BMW ICOM ISTA-D 4.07.13 FAQs:

Q: I tried it out, and it works fine. But after deleting some error codes, it froze, but after I restarted the program, the codes were erased, is there any specific reason why that happened?

A: If you are using a INPA k+Dcan interface, you might need a Voltage Control tool in order to properly close the operation.
If not, you might have some issues with your local installation and/or software environment and/or prerequisites needed for ISTA D.

Q: my question was: is fw-03-15-02 an officially update for icom? Or is here something modded, like “03-15-00-unprotected” or so? Because there is only one file different to 03-15-00. In the past there was always two different files.

A: Official.

Q: Does anyone have License for ISPI Admin Client 5.1.6.181?

A: Check here:

For people who want to use the web interface instead.

Q: I just wanna ask about the difference between the ISTA\D or P , ISTA+ and ISPI_ISTA ?? because I have a BMW E60 535XI 2008 and I wanna choose the best option for my car to diagnose or program , and also can I use that program with a K-DCAN OBD II cable which is the same I use for coding or I need to use another one ?

A: ISTA/D is for diagnostics of all BMW’s, Mini, and RR. It can only program Fxx/Ixx/Gxx-series BMW.

For E-series, you can use K+DCAN USB cable with ISTA+ for diagnostics, but you need BMW ICOM A+B+C and ISTA-P or Winkfp for programming.

Q: can’t I for examle update my ECU with sp-daten files using K+DCAN cable using Winkfp ? since it can be done using the same method but with another adapter like “iCarly’ ? I mean why acn’t I program using K+DCAN cable with ISTA P since ICOM is more expensive

A: Carly is a bluetooth device. K+DCAN cable will not work for two reasons; it cannot communicate over “most” interface (multimedia ECU’s) and would potentially take days to program with higher rate of likely failure. An BMW ICOM A2 emulator is less expensive than replacing an ECU.

Q: Now can you please guide me on what and where to buy a good quality of ICOM as I read that ICOM A+B+C from Obd2tool.com is good but I really don’t know how much does it cost and from where to buy it since I saw some on AliExpress but I don’t trust Chinese quality.

A:

ICOM A: main interface
ICOM B: adapter for programming multimedia in E series
ICOM C: adapter for old BMW with round 20 pin diagnostic plug
ICOM D: adapter for motorcycles

You can purchase directly from dealerships; though not sure they are still selling A2’s. If you read the ISTA-P release notes, you will see that next does not always work for E-series. Or, have a try ICOM here:

Q: I’m trying to update SDP but from all files only German language was updated.

I’m doing that all the time but now I have problem and I can solve myself.

What I’m doing wrong?

A: It does not look like anything is updated. You must have xml’s and istapackage for it to work.

Q: I have now installed and changed old ISTA with new 4.07 but now ISTA says that data are incompatible?

A: It is normal, you only update databases, you have not updated ISTA APP
Current ISTA version should be the same as thread title after you apply Reg fix included with standalone.

just install new ISTA and solved

BMW Motorcycle Diagnostic Tool Suggestion

20-1

Which BMW diagnostic tool is best for BMW motorcycles/bikes? ICOM A2? ICOM D? MOTO-1? GS-911? MOTO 7000TW? Here, Obd2tool.com engineers share the professional ideas here.

1- BMW ICOM A2 + ICOM D interface (BEST)
20-2

ICOM A2 is the best BMW diagnostic tool and ICOM D is the professional BMW motorcycle diagnose cables.

According to customer feedback, ICOM A2 + ICOM D is the most ideal tool for BMW motorcycle coding.

20-3

If ICOM A2+ICOM D is too expensive for you, try K+DCAN cable with ICOM D. Some bmw owners managed to use this kit for their bike coding. Most use this to cycle the ABS pump to bleed.

2- MOTO BMW Motorcycle-specific diagnostic scanner

20-4

BMW C, F, G, H, K and R series vehicles test of engine, ABS, instrument, and body system of motorcycle

3- GS-911 scanner for BMW motorcycle (POPULAR)

BMW F25 Auto Start-and-Stop Coding with E-sys Interface

15-1

Here are tips/ intructions of coding auto start-and-stop for BMW F25 with ENET cable and E-sys interface by OBD2TOOL.

Purpose:

To code the ASS to off as default with esys…

Model:

BMW x3 f25

Tool suggestion:

– Best is to have psdz data that corresponds to the i-level of your car.

– Technically, you can use any version of E-Sys with any version of PSdZData, so long as that version of E-Sys is Patched, and has a .EST Token with current Validity. The issue is that BMW made changes to the PSdZData beginning with 48.2 for F20 / F30, and then in 48.3 for all other chassis, that required an updated Patch / Token, which rendered the E-Sys 3.22.5 version most everyone was using, aka “the free version”, needing a new Patch / Token, and continue to use the newest BMW ICOM Software.

Instruction:

Add “OMSA” to FA (in Ho-wort folder), write FA to car (not forget about backup partner) and code CAS.

E-Sys read I-Level steps:

E Sys Read

15-2

I-Step current is what you have.
In most events, just use the PSdZData 49.4, and you will be fine.

If you do not want to modify VO by adding the HO-Wort, you can FDL Code one of these in CAS module depending on your BMW ICOM A2:

TC_MSA_DEFAULT_OFF = aktiv (Turn Auto Start/Stop OFF by default)
TC_MSA_MEMORY = aktiv (Sets car’s Auto Start/Stop function to start in the last used setting (e.g. Off) when the engine is started)

ICOM A2 ISTA/P ISPI Next Expired, Not Started & Closed

What to do if BMW ICOM A2BC ISTA/P ISPI Next has expired, or could not be started or closed? Here’s the useful solution offered by OBD2TOOL.

Emulator:

ICOM A2 with ista-p v3.56.1002

Symptoms:

ISTA/P ISPI Next

ISTA/P n’a pas pu être demarre

Un defaut est survenu

Un demarrage d’ISTA/P est impossible

(ISTA / P could not be started

A default has occurred

A boot of ISTA / P is impossible)

ISTA/P ISPI

ISTA/P n’a pas pu etre ferme

Possible reasons:

Restart ISTA/P ISPI for two many times

Solutions:

(SOLVED) ICOM can’t read out E46 vehicle order/ VIN

I have a BMW ICOM clone and trying to connect to my E46 with ista D, but it says it can’t read out vehicle order or VIN. Here I offer two solutions, just for sharing.

5-1

Error: the vehicle could not be identified. Please check the access to the vehicle and check whether the testing-analysis-diagnosis has been activated.

5-2

I find a solution, just like with K+DCAN connect pin 7&8 with a switch that you can shut off when connecting to newer cars. I mean that I just connect 7&8 pins of icom A2 connector ??

Even with the K+Dcan it won’t connect, once i did this trick it connected well, with Ista and INPA ??

But, someone in forums say they cannot solve it with this solution, and think it might be the K-line problem. They put forward another solution as follows:

Dissemble the PCB board of your Car Scanner ICOM clone
Test the resistance (marked red in picture below) to check if the voltage is 39K with a multimeter, if it is, it’s normal.
Otherwise, the device is damaged. You’ve to send back for repair.

5-35-4
NOTE:
The solutions above are for BMW ICOM clone, not for USB interface, so it is helpless to get an OBD2-adapter where PIN 7+8 is bridged. And you are at risk to try, please be responsible for what you do with BMW ICOM A2+B+C.

Good luck.
