good luck with it i tend to use multi meter ie a good one cover resistances etc a must have tool, also good diagnostic and promise anyone the best value for money is that autocom cdp plus off ebay..put it this way it will on most stuff do more than the snap on one we have at garage ie snap on one s over £2000 plus monthly fees for updates etc, also a good value but more money around £100 is bmw mini own dealer software insta d but its a mission to learn it,,, can take hours to find what you need to do etc,, i have psa groups dealer level software for Citroen and Peugeot and i still have to think about it when using it,, where the autocom is easy after a few goes with it,, but sometimes you need a full details diagnostics, i pout some pics of live data on the psa diagnostics bmw one is sort of same complicated ,I hope it's not something as elusive as that. I'll update if/when I find the problem. Fingere crossed. Thanks again Mike.
i have one work well on bmw products that said dont tend to use it unless i get a issue that snap on or autocom wont run with,, think i have run mine once in about 2 years so rusty on how and what works on itMike. What do you think of this?
Genuine USB DCAN & ENET Lead f. BMW ISTA /D Version 4.20.31 DVDs (2019 November! ). BMW ISTA/D Diagnostic Software Version 4.20.31 - November 2019 release! This is the very latest version covering all up 2019 manufactured BMW's including G (diagnostics only) series.www.ebay.co.uk
the autocom will program some stuff ie injectors and bcm and keys on some stuff.. as you would also need to reset adaptations when replacing a cat or 02 sensors or even timing chain or throttle body say,, a lot of people dont realise just how complex these system are and timing they take to use the diagnostics hence why some go online to vent their anger at a £200 maybe for such work done,, takes a good hour to reset most things and program on some stuff its a couple of hours or more just because some of the software is slow and runs on windows xp or win7 only so processors are slow out of date etc.. hence why autocom works well for me ie got it on a windows 10 with 8gb ram and i5 processors so really fast no waiting for things to connect etcIt doesn't look very user-friendly. I just want something that'll show me that vanos positions. The fact that that one can 'programme' things is a bit of a worry.
thats ok bud not a problem, that diagnostics covers nearly all cars on road from 1998 to 2015 ish and will do most things as well work brakes and airbags and all controllersThat looks ideal! Thank you so much. I've ordered it. Hopefully it isn't coming from China and it won't get delayed. Thanks again for taking the time to look for that.
