    ANyone with a Touring and PASoft that can screen shot LCM coding screen?

    2000 323i wagon has an old LCM that im replacing with a DYN 3.56 unit. it works and ive coded VIn and mileage but the tail lights have errors.

    normally i go into the old LCM and screen shot the Coding dialog that has all the PWM values so i can duplicate them in the new LCM however this OLD LCM is so old it doesnt have those values displayed.

    this is the screen im looking for. hoping someone can get me a screen shot of their values.

    this one is from my sedan fyi.

    is the new LCM from a Touring?

    if not, that's your problem. BP helped me with this as i was trying to put my FW v4.5 LCM from my sedan into my Touring....and i got the rocket boosters.

    if i remember correctly, BP read the FA from the instrument cluster (in the Touring) and copied it to the LCM, and then reset the LCM to factory defaults? we did this with NCSExpert.

    i'm running on very little sleep lately so i can't really remember. it was something along those lines. hopefully he can chime in here.

    No, you can use one from a sedan. You just need to write the vehicle order to it; the instrument cluster stores this information.

    ok so I probably just need to change the chassis code from EV53 to AR33 which is touring chassis code. i can do that with NCS Expert in the LCM.

    i dont have the old cluster anymore since the wagon now has the m3 cluster in it.

    well it needs to be a late model one. your 323 2000 wagon will most likely be the same as mine.. where it doesnt show any PMW values for the tail light coding
    part.

    i think Slater may be on to something with the Vehicle chassis code though. I will try changing the chassis code from EV53 to AR33 and see if i get different results.

    thanks guys

    Just copy the FA from the IKE to the LCM using PA Soft, then use NCS Expert to reset the LCM to factory defaults.
    You should find the Copy FA function under LCM under either Coding or Reprogramming, I forgot what it's called. Then do a copy from IKE > LCM when asked.

    Then go into NCS, load up Expert Mode, select the LCM, and do a SG_CODIERREN on it. All done!

    Sorry I missed that.

    Shawn, do you just not have the cluster anymore or just not installed? If you still have it then it's be worth swapping it back in for this.
