Bmw Icom A2 interface

Topic:

I have recently bought the new BMW Diagnostic Tool Icom A2 interface with Isid 3.1, Ista/d 2.36 and Ista/p 2.49.2 software and i would like to ask if anyone knows if it’s possible to connect wireless to the car’s obd without the LAN cable since it support’s WLAN option or what else needed to make it possible? The Icom A2 interface is a clone.

Replied by shawnsheridan

I don’t think any of the A1 ICOM Clones had WLAN card inside, and I would be surprised if A2 ICOM Clone did. If it does, I am pretty sure you need a special Access Point connected to ISIS Server to use WLAN mode.

Replied by TroyE60

Thanks mate for your answer. Actually the ICOM A2 supports Wireless lan. As you can see from the below pic which I have already uploaded (Icom A2 connected in my car’s obd slot) with the system light green (turn on – operational) it has 4 lights. One for communication, one for wireless lan, on for LAN (RJ 45) and one for the operation named system. I was wondering if there is some kind of emulator or something to “trick” the interface so it thinks it is connected on an ISIS server even running from VMware.

how to distinguish the original bmw icom A2 software and fake ICOM A2

BMW ICOM A2+B+C is the best diagnostic tool for BMW car.
1. Super version BMW ICOM A2 is compatible with many kinds of computers.
2. Once insert hard disk into your computer it can automatically install.

Method to Solve BMW ICOM A2 WinKFP Error 211 on Flash Programming

If you met the problems of BMW ICOM A2 software Winkfp flash programming error 211, you can have a look at the methods provided by forum members. Maybe they are useful.

problems

Both modules from the BMW dealership comes With VIN & Part Number already programmed in them but when use INPA to read the UIF block, the Part Number only showed up but not the VIN. Number, in its place is all yyyyyyy.

How to use WinKFP to program both the CAS & DME to facilitate a starting the engine for BMW E60?

40-1 40-2

Tools used here: BMW ICOM A2

Laptop with windows XP

Possible solutions from forums:

Note:

Opinion 1

You only need to code both units and then align. This can be done via NCS and INPA. When units are virgin chassis is written at time of coding.

Opinion 2

Just code both modules to default. You can use any profile which has manipulation disabled.

Opinion 3

Modules on the MOST bus should be reprogrammed with an ICOM interface and not a K+DCAN cable.

Opinion 4

You should be able to successfully reprogram it with ISTA/P and an BMW ICOM interface.

Opinion 5

Check your Winkfp configuration, make sure it looks like this

How to Solve BMW ISTA+ 4.1 “Programming is not possible”

BMW ISTA+ for BMW diagnostic & programming function, BMW ISTA+ software compatible with BMW ICOM A2ICOM Next & Enet cable, recently some users to help those with error “Programming is not possible” when using BMW ISTA+. Eobdtool.com share How to Solve BMW ISTA+ 4.1 “Programming is not possible” as following.

Rheingold ISTA+ BMW Diagnostic Software BMW ISTA D/P software 2018.03 Version

Here obd2tool.com share lists possible solutions as follows:

Sw version: Ista+ 4.10.30
Hw: Enet cable

25-1

Error message: I get message after reading all ECU’s
“Programming is not possible”
If I click this message away I can just continue.

I have: bin, binx64, host, hostx64
But which files/maps must be located in map PSdZ?

Solution 1:

Try it with the BLP data so the folder “data” under C / Rheingold / PSdZ / data ..
Of course, in the Reg also specify that the data is available but still as you have made everything on “false” ..

you unpack the BLP under C / Rheingold / PSdZ / and you get the folder “data” ..
So C / Rheingold / PSdZ / data ..

Reg:

“Product Version” = “4.10.30.15635”
“Main Product Version” = “4.10”
“Data version” = “10/04/31”
“DataVersion_en-GB” “04/10/31”
“Logistic Base Version” “10/04/30”
“SWIData” = “04/10/30”

“BMW.Rheingold.Programming.ExpertMode” “True”
“BMW.Rheingold.Programming.Enabled” = “True”
“BMW.Rheingold.Programming.PsdzDataPath” = “.. \\ .. \\ .. \\ \\ PSdZ data_swi”

If it doesn’t work, try the following solution. It works for bmw a2 in earlier version.

Solution 2:

In earlier versions this worked:
“BMW.Rheingold.Programming.ExpertMode”=”False”
“BMW.Rheingold.Programming.Enabled”=”False”
“BMW.Rheingold.Programming.PsdzDataPath”=”..\\..\\PSdZ\\data”

Have not tried on latest.

P.S. BLP must be installed normally into data folder. No need to create any empty folders.

Still had psdz path set to data_swi. You must adjust it to be data instead of data_swi when no sdp installed. Then it should not complain and work. BMW ICOM BLP data MUST be installed in all cases.

Solution 3:

Create empty folders
С:\Rheingold\PSdZ\data
С:\Rheingold\PSdZ\data_swi

BMW E-Series Programming with ICOM ISTAP, not ISTA+

There are different systems for vehicle diagnosis (ISTA) and programming (ISTA/P) used. This means it was necessary to change systems several times when repairing a vehicle using software.

ISTA+ has been expanded so that all the required programming functions for the series F, G and I are integrated.

E-series vehicles still have to be programmed using BMW ICOM ISTA/P!

The functions relevant for programming can be accessed via the following menus:

17-1

Vehicle treatment

1.Software update o Comfort – as per the suggested measures plan
o Advanced – with broadened scope
o Additional software (range of functions is not active yet)

2. Control unit replacement o Before exchange (preparation) – control unit read-out for the exchange
o After exchange (subsequent evaluation) – control unit configuration after exchange

3.Vehicle modification o Retrofit
o Conversion
o Conversion (only coding)
o Backfitting
o Immediate measures

17-2

So, what for E series coding/programming?

For Exx- Series:
Interface = K+DCAN Cable (OBDII to USB) or ICOM
ECU Data Files = SP-Daten
NCS Expert = Coding Software
WinKFP = Programming (Flashing) Software
EDIABAS = Low-Level ECU Communication Software used by NCS Expert & WinKFP

For Coding, you need NCS Expert / SP-Daten for E-Series
All Diagnosis and Coding can be done with a cheap K+Dcan cable

For Programming (Flashing ECU’s with new Firmware), then you need ISTA/P for for E-Series, or you can use WinKFP for it. And you will need a BMW ICOM cable (ICOM A2/ICOM A3 or ICOM Next)

YOU HAVE TO KNOW before you buy ICOM A2 or ICOM A3 or ICOM Next:

ICOM Next vs the old ICOM

-> much faster in BMW F and G series ..
-> supports gigabit Ethernet too to be future proof, there currently is not gigabit Ethernet protocol defined yet for autos. Also it has USB3.0 instead of USB2.0 and a better wifi card.

So, Icom next a works much better.

BMW ICOM A+B+C vs ICOM A2

-> more stable during programming
-> be necessary for the future Gbit cars
-> faster start-up times and high throughput
-> through high-performance,low-power ARM SoC
-> improved handling
-> more flexible OBD cable
-> lighted button for logs

In sum, Icom next wins!

ICOM A3 vs ICOM NEXT

Both of these have the same hardware. None of them are clones of anything also. A3 is fully china version of ICOM, there is no original version looking like this crap. NEXT is just looking as genuine NEXT, but with old A1/A2 hardware inside, like A3.

I recommend buying an Icom next. It is priced roughly at 500 euro. Take in consideration that you will probably work on cars that are worth 30-40k euro or maybe more and if your chinese icom fails you even once, you will be spending a lot of money on a bricked ecu.

ICOM A vs ICOM A2 vs ICOM A3

Modified ICOM A2 for vehicles with OBD access receives a significantly more powerful processor and more storage capacity. And robust aluminium case will help to avoid damage when using in harsh environments. It works better in cooling, runs faster and works more stable, not easier broken than older ICOM A.

ICOM A3 can program all units for all BMW series expect media system, and work more stable and has stronger compatibility than ICOM A2, A1.

In short, ICOM NEXT A+B+C works perfect; it’s the best option.

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?

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
