I got a little confused as this thread built with your comments and those of luckyfrederic .

My question is does that the heat distribution feature work? If so, what are the value, functions and modules to do so?

Appreciate your help

Thanks
Seat heat distribution works, and the values you need to change are in the original post. With that said, the behavior is a little odd. I haven't played with it enough to figure it out, but I frequently end up with only upper or lower back being warm even though the slider isn't all the way to one side.

siegester ,
Just coded what you had in first post. How do you access the Seat Heating Distribution -- in other words, how do I get to it on iDrive?

Thanks

Owner's Manual in Motion

Hi,

When I coded Video in Motion, it worked for videos, BUT it didn't seem to work for the on-board owner's Manual. I did some digging in the HG_MGU module of my M340 and found the following functions which I changed from Aktiv to NichtAktiv to allow use of the on-board owner's manual:
  • SL06_IBA1
  • SpeedLock_IBA_Access_CCM
  • SpeedLock_IBA_Short
  • SpeedLock_IBA_Index
  • SL20_Contacts_Note

While the last function is not part of the manual, I found it useful to also make it available while in motion

These menus change a bit based on what is enabled, but it should be either in the same place as the auto seat heater configuration, or in a stand alone seat heating menu under the climate control menu (I believe there is even a third menu configuration, but I cannot recall what it was).

siegester ,

Hmm, I just checked and can't find that menu in either place or anywhere. I coded the two BDC & one SM2 functions in your original post, but I suspect some function has to be coded in the HG_MGU ECU -- perhaps:
  • HVAC_SeatHeat_Distribution_Fond to Aktiv
  • HVAC_SeatHeat_Distribution_Front to Aktiv
Is that correct?

Got a few questions. Has anyone heard from tokenmaster? I have been waiting since December with no response. Also is any of this coding possible with just Esys alone and not the launcher? Trying to get lane change assist and the auto heated steering wheel working on a g20. Everything else I’ve done with Bimmercode. Thanks in advance for any info.

My apologies, yes I have coded both of those. For now I just use the Front since I have not yet been able to get anything but the driver's seat to work. I will update the original post. Also I checked last night and I currently have a seat and wheel heating option when I push the AC Menu button on the dash.

Did you email him and follow the instructions he sends you exactly? If so he usually responds within a few days to a week. If you don't get a reply after that, you most likely did not do something exactly as he asks. It sucks that he just ignores incorrect ones, but I imagine he gets a crap load of requests so I somewhat understand.

You cannot really code without esysx or launcher pro as they provide the mappings which make the trimmed values make sense to a human

Thanks siegester. I figured as much in the esys. I'm pretty sure I did every thing correct for tokenmaster. I paid him directly. He had no problem taking my money! I've been looking to see anyone acknowledge talking to him or getting the latest launcher but I haven't come across anything past December.

siegester ,

That did the trick! The driver slide seems to work fine, bu I see what you mean about front passenger -- can't get it to save slide setting; oh well!

THANKS!!!

@Basti@G20 320D,

SM2 is the ECU that handles seat items; on my M340. its CAFD is 2259.

FYI, when using E-Sys (and I think also for Bimmercode), the ECUs are listed alphabetically on the SVT (again in E-Sys)

Hope that helps!

when changing to werte 2, however, a separate ntc sensor for backrest and seat must be installed in the seat. this is only the case with climate-controlled seats, isn't it?

Thank you very much for sharing. May I ask the URL of the code you gave, there is no script encoded file, where can I find it? thank you very much!

It probably is since people have coded it in but it doesn’t work on the G20.

Which file are you looking for? Esys, Launcher Pro, cheat codes? The cheat codes are in a format that launcher pro understands and brings into esys. You just download the code file, and put it in the esys directory (see first post for exact location)

Hi guys, new to coding and have a couple of quick questions please:

1) I've seen a few cheap Enet adapters on eBay that say they are for the F-series. Presumably they would work on a G-series too wouldn't they? The pinouts for the ODB2 port are the same for both series I'd have thought?

2) I'm slightly confused whether I need Launcher for G-series? From the 1st post links I've downloaded Esys 3.27.1, PSdZData Lite 4.21.32 and the Launcher Pro that Tokenmaster was giving away in his blog, 2.8.2 build 162. But the Launcher token is only valid till 20th of this month and I haven't got my enet cable yet. But I'm only wanting to code one or two things so I don't really want to pay the £50 to get the token for a newer version especially as some people seem to have difficulty with him responding.

3) Between 1) and 2) above will I have everything I need? (Obviously I have a laptop.)

Thanks.

hottroc ,

Let me give your questions a go.

I have an ENet cable that I used on my F30 and have also used now on my G20.

On your laptop, you need the items listed. If you want to get the long term token, there are instructions in another thread on this forum or go to BimmerFest coding forum and get them there. From what I gather from posts, you must follow instructions EXACTLY and TokenMaster is notalways quick to respond.

Hope that helps!
