If you could do a video of how you set up the drivers on your computer, that would be awesome. I got this scanner and was excited about doing some changes just to find I can’t find a driver for the actual scan tool itself. I’ve got the software ready to go, it’s the scanner that keeps saying it doesn’t have a driver for. I’m not sure if it’s something I’m doing or the software and tool isn’t any good. Mine looks just like yours but doesn’t have the sticker showing a BMW on the front. Any advice?

Great vid. Finally got it to download but what now lol. Can you make a video preferable with a 2011 e90 with n52 engine or any bmw about INPA. How do we use the software to diagnose issues like fuel trim, maf , 02 sensor to find issues with the car? What should 02 sensors or maf sensor be reading how to get to each menu. There's nothing on youtube in regards to simple diagnosis. Thanks in advanced

Hi, I have a 2001 BMW 330i. I am told that my transmission needs to be changed because the transmission computer isn't working. By 2 BMW / German car repair shops. Is the transmission computer inside the transmission to where I have to change it or can I reprogram or purchase in transmission computer separately? I would really appreciate the help in clarifying this thank you. And thanks for your videos.

I bought the INPA k+dcan cable and I found that I need to bridge pins 7 and 8 together. There are two sets of 8 pins: one set on the motherboard, and the other on the plug. Which ones do I bridge together? UPDATE: I'm getting the error "IFH-0009: NO RESPONSE FROM CONTROLUNIT. PROGRAM WILL BE STOPPED!" What do I do?
3D_ Tech (1 month ago)
There is only one pin 7 and one pin 8. look closer at the boards and there will be labels for pins 1, 8, 9 and 16. Basically for the first and last pins on each row.

Hi Jason, I need help with my e60 M5. I’m trying to determine what code 279D is, it sounds like it has to do with my electric fan final stage. But I’m not sure. I’ve read online that it could be the relay. Or some electrical problem. Here’s why I think that, I just changed my gas tank vent valve because of code 273c. I cleared the code but it came back on. I also had code 2b52, for electric transmission oil pump, I couldn’t locate the unit next to my 6 speed transmission. So I clear the code and it didn’t come back on. I talked to the part guy at the dealer he said the unit is on passenger side of the transmission I checked but didn’t see it. Now, I’m not sure what to do. The car has 93K miles. I don’t mind changing parts but when the part is changed the code should clear out but it didn’t, I’m thinking it could be an electrical problem.

Andi Selaj (10 months ago)
Just to clear up the general confusion that surrounds the Fuel Trims: Adaptiv Fuel Trim - Low engine load - Low engine speed Multiplicative Fuel Trim - Medium engine loads - medium engine speed Both of these are long term and integrator is the short term fuel trims. As for WOT operation the engine doesn't use closed loop, but defaults to a pre-programmed map for WOT and runs the engine rich.

Hi 50's kid. I have the D-Kcan cable. I can use this on my 320ci E46, my 745li e66, and my e70 X5. I connected the cable to my daughters boyfriends 330i E46, and DIS could not automatically identify the car. When I did a manual scan, it only could communicate with the DME module. All other modules could not be detected or scanned. Same thing using INPA. Do you have any thoughts on the matter? Cheers.
Ivailo Dombev (8 months ago)
Make sure you are running Windows XP (You can make a virtual machine with WinXP and share your USB Ports). For the e46 the K+DCAN cables need to have their 7 and 8 pin connected so the software can communicate with the vehicle. Have in mind that this will make the newer models unreadable. (If you can make a switch which connects pin 7 and 8 and when you need to scan older vehicles just turn it on, if you need to work on newer cars switch it off) I am not sure if I explained it good enough.
Mihai Vlad (11 months ago)
inpa is not for bmw e36?
Ben (9 months ago)
INPA doesnt really program (from what I know). You need NCS Expert to change the parameters in the BMW computer systems. INPA can clear codes and check all kinds of cool stuff, but NCS Expert is for coding. Yes, to code E36 I believe you need a proper ADS interface (read, cable). Generally these are connected to real serial ports (not a USB to Serial converters).
Mihai Vlad (10 months ago)
Ben Wall i know cables FOR e36 is different, but the program is working ? On e36?
Ben (9 months ago)
Mihai Vlad INPA definitely is for E36. I use it on E36 and E46, but the cables are different. If your E36 has the Pac man connector under the hood, you need an ADS cable. Google for "tiny ADS" (https://openlabs.co/projects/Tiny-ADS-Interface) . Some guy makes a board for it that is like the obd2 port cable shown at the front of this video.

Natalie Jane (1 year ago)
Hi Jayson, im planning to take my e46 2001 for emission it has no plate yet. im suspecting that my 02 sensor might fail? (i just said it might fail cause previous owner didnt replace it and i cant put it on the road so im assuming it will fail no way to drive on actual road? i cannot put it on the road cause it has no plate...so i cant put 02 sensor to work that good. but i do have INPA do you think just by using INPA i could determine if my 02 sensor fails? correct me if im wrong but to test 02 sensor does it really need to put in the road? or could i just rev my car and warm it for a while in the garage and hook my INPA to test my 02 sensor? if possible? what are the thresholds of a good o2 sensor? thank you very much.
50sKid (1 year ago)
You don't have to drive it, you can just run it. Yes you can use INPA to see if the O2s are working. A good precat O2 sensor will cycle between 0.1v and 0.9v.

You can code it with NCS Expert. A lot of information on the forums - bimmmerworld, e46fanatics. It's easy if you know what you're doing. For the NCS Expert you will need the K+DCAN cable with the INPA software(They come in pairs)

cool. gotta get the inpa scanner. my fuel consumption suddenly increase. I threw in some new plugs and its still burning a lot of gas. about to replace the fuel filter. any other suggestions? no check engine light, no misfire. still runs fine, except for the increased fuel consumption
blackpassenger (1 year ago)
just replaced my fuel filter with your direction from another of your vids. the contents of the filter was filthy (pun intended) and gas mileage went back to normal. oh and i finally got the hidden obc to function properly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twM7NchxjXI

You probably have high fuel trims causing increased consumption.

bob campbell (1 year ago)
50s Kid hi,   I apologize but I could  not find  any of your videos on airbags, so I felt this area was closest to my problem.My wife took our 330 bmw (2001 with 81,000 mile, purchased new) into Center BMW in Van Nuys for the free airbag switchout required by the recall.  When she got the car back the radio light would not come on.   So she drove out the exit and right back into the entrance and complained but they refused to correct their error saying they did nothing having to do with the radio.  So we all know those wires run behind the dash and all over the place.   With something like this, how would you go about handling it?  What is the likelihood that this issue is just co-incidental? bob
bob campbell (1 year ago)
50s Kid hi... when your radio went dead, though in this case it is just the radio display light, how did you fix it.  Also the mechanic told my wife he never disconnected that battery when changing the new air bag.  This is a violation of bmw protocols.  What do you think?  bob
50sKid (1 year ago)
It kind of sounds co-incidental. The display on my original radio went dead at some point too.
bob campbell (1 year ago)
50s Kid Hi and thanks for being there in the o-zone.   I am going to need to update my DME program.  I live in the Lake Balboa area not too far from you.  Is there an INDY shop that can do the update instead of having to take it to a dealer.  Can you give me a recommendation.  2974 code problems...     Thanks bob
50sKid (1 year ago)
I really don't know of any shops that I can personally recommend, but I do see all sorts of "bavarian" places around here. Just do some searching and call them up and ask if they can update your DME and how much it'll cost. Most of them probably can.

They make an adapter for it. You can get them on eBay.
David Westernall (1 year ago)
Not sure if you are interested as this is an old video but some out of date stuff here. INPA, DIS, PROGMAN etc are very old and we do not use them anymore, ista/p and ista/d replaced them around 2011. The cable we use is an ICOM (several versions of these, newer models need newer versions) and they connect over IP. The cable from eBay acts as an ICOM emulator over serial, ISTA/D and /P are slow over ICOM, over emulated serial they would be really bad.
David Westernall (1 year ago)
Not sure how much fun you will have with ISTA, especially on the diag side; you're certainly a get stuff done no nonsense type of person and the people that wrote ISTA were the opposite. ISTA/D however does contain the full TIS documentation. ISTA/P however is far better than progman for programming and coding. For an ICOM the ICOM A2+B+C will be best, you only need ICOM Next if working on 2012+ cars.
50sKid (1 year ago)
Yeah a couple of people have told me about ISTA and I have yet to sit down and play around with it, but I will in the near future and do a video on it as well. Thanks for the info about the ICOM cable.
