How to enable Basic Features in BMW ICOM ISTA software

Enable basic features in the latest ISTA:

Add to ISTAGUI.exe.config file:

<add key=”BMW.Rheingold.VehicleIdentification.BasicFeatureIdentEnabled” value=”true” />

where to put it in the config file:

<!– OperationalMode –>

<add key=”BMW.Rheingold.CoreFramework.PrintingXpsPath” value=”..\..\..\Print” />
<add key=”BMW.Rheingold.VehicleIdentification.BasicFeatureIdentEnabled” value=”true” />

That comes very handy!

Here all models work in Basic features! Good job.

Btw, it does not work with the very latest models like G05, G07, G29.

Why do you need “basic features” & What it is:

If the vehicle identification number is unknown, you can alternatively use the “Basic features” tab.

How to identify a vehicle via ISTA basic features:

* Click the “Identification” main menu. The “VIN” tab will be selected.

* Click on the “Basic features” tab.

*  If required, choose another basic feature from the left-hand

“Basic features” selection list.

*  Define the contents for the basic feature by selecting an entry from the central list.

*  If necessary, repeat the entry with other basic features (the predefined sequence does not

have to be observed) or click the “Accept” button.

After the individual basic features, the workshop system only offers items that are compatible with

the previously selected ones. This excludes contradictory entries.

There is no need to enter all available basic features. However, you must define at least one. The

more completely you specify the basic features, the more precisely the workshop system can select

the matching documents.

NOTE

Without specification of E-designation and in some cases the model year and month,

vehicle-specific searches for the function structure, component structure, or service

function structure cannot be performed!

NOTE

It is not possible to manually select the features for security vehicles.

Security vehicles can only be identified via the VIN.

After entering the basic features a check is performed to see whether an operation with the

specified features is already present in the operations list and a selection is offered. If the selected

basic feature combination is unknown, a new operation is automatically created

Incomplete entry of basic features:

If you click the “Accept” button without having defined all “Basic features”, a popup window

appears containing a system message. Acknowledge the message with “Continue” to end the

vehicle selection procedure or return to selection of the basic features with “Cancel”.

On completion of vehicle identification, the display switches over to the “Operation details” menu

Password: NOT required!

Security: Unknown – TRY ON YOUR OWN RISK!!!!

Suggestion: you need luck with ISTA+ 4.09.33 as it’s not tested yet by professionals that safety is unknown. And luck also is needed because of the uneasy installation. Hope the installation guide is helpful but note that it would be kind of different from versions, in terms of steps. If you’re not good at this, just buy a cheap HDD or SSD with software inside. A lot of Chinese have crack software with internal disk. Jus buy it with relief.

(SOLVED) ICOM can’t read out E46 vehicle order VIN

I have a BMW ICOM clone and trying to connect to my E46 with ista D, but it says it can’t read out vehicle order or VIN. Here I offer two solutions, just for sharing.

ICOM-can-not-read-out-E46-vehicle-order-VIN-1

Error: the vehicle could not be identified. Please check the access to the vehicle and check whether the testing-analysis-diagnosis has been activated.

ICOM-can-not-read-out-E46-vehicle-order-VIN-2

I find a solution, just like with K+DCAN connect pin 7&8 with a switch that you can shut off when connecting to newer cars. I mean that I just connect 7&8 pins of BMW ICOM A2 connector ??

Even with the K+Dcan it won’t connect, once i did this trick it connected well, with Ista and INPA ??

But, someone in forums say they cannot solve it with this solution, and think it might be the K-line problem. They put forward another solution as follows:

Dissemble the PCB board of your Car Scanner ICOM clone
Test the resistance (marked red in picture below) to check if the voltage is 39K with a multimeter, if it is, it’s normal.

Otherwise, the device is damaged. You’ve to send back for repair.

ICOM-can-not-read-out-E46-vehicle-order-VIN-3

NOTE:
The solutions above are for BMW ICOM clone, not for USB interface, so it is helpless to get an OBD2-adapter where PIN 7+8 is bridged. And you are at risk to try, please be responsible for what you do with BMW ICOM A2+B+C.
Good luck.
