Safety Recall: Supplementary Restraint System (SRS) Warning Lamp Illuminated
Fault code: P046: Update Occupant Classification Sensor Control Module software

Range Rover Evoque (LV)
Model year: 2012-2013

LR2 (LF)
Model year: 2010-2015

AFFECTED VEHICLE RANGE:
MARKETS: NAS

CONDITION SUMMARY: 
This Service Instruction may be performed on all affected vehicles from SDD-DVD139.00 v184 software release.


Situation: 
A concern has been identified with the Supplementary Restraint System (SRS) passenger airbag which may be totally or partially disabled as a result of physical cell wear out of the Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory (EEPROM) within the Occupant Classification Sensor Control Module (OCSCM). When this condition is detected by the SRS system self-test, completed at ignition on, the OCSCM will shut down. This condition results in Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) U0154-00 being set in the Restraints Control Module (RCM) along with continuous illumination of the SRS warning lamp on the Instrument Cluster. Range Rover Evoque vehicles will also illuminate the Passenger Airbag Disable indicator (PADi) lamp in the overhead console. The condition may clear on the next subsequent ignition cycle.


Action: 
Retailers are required to HOLD all affected vehicles that are within your control and refrain from releasing the vehicles for new or used vehicle sale pending completion of the rework action detailed in this Technical Bulletin. Unsold vehicles should have this performed as part of the Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) process but must have it completed prior to vehicle handover to the customer. Affected vehicles already in the hands of customers should be updated at the next available opportunity.

PARTS: 
No parts required

SPECIAL TOOLS:

NOTE: this document is an ‘Active Bulletin’ that will display a functional programming shortcut if accessed within a diagnostic session using JLR SDD diagnostic interface.

Where to get a decent wiTech Micropod 2 clone?

This is for those who are looking for a decent wiTech Micropod 2 China clone.
witech-micropod2
It’s the best quality of Micropod 2 clone SP271-C1, quality as good as VCM2 clone SP177-C1.
BUT, WHY IT IS THE BEST QUALITY MICROPOD 2 FROM CHINA?
First, this Micropod 2 SP271-C1 can be connected to the NETWORK and NEVER LOCKED!
You could use the clone for ONLINE DIAGNOSIS for NEW CHRYSLER CARS.
If you have an account, you also are able to do ONLINE PROGRAMMING.
Second, the wiTech Micropod2 SP271-C1 is confirmed to WORK NO ISSUES WITH DRBIII EMULATOR as well as the original Micropod 2.
This is a test report from our customer @rcompart and it’s verified to get DRBIII with the clone Micropod 2. And, it’s kind of him share the tutorial in detail with you guys.
All can be found here:
With DRBIII emulator, you can have your Micropod 2 for old Chysler the year 1997 – 2004 (2005)
Without DRBIII, Micropod 2 clone only works for Chrysler made after the year 2003
That is, you have a way for old Chrysler with a cloned Micropod 2 unit.
Third, wiTech software is confirmed also no issues with this Micropod2.
It’s tested 100% by real professionals working for obdii365.com
Note: what is DRB3 and what’s wiTech? What’s the main difference The DRB3 emulator is part of Chrysler’s Witech software. The Witech software supports two different pass-through devices, The VCI pod which is sold with the Witech system and the Chrysler Starmobile. The DRB3 emulator is a convenience item for dealerships to allow the use of their current witech scan-tool on older non CAN bus vehicles. It is not by any means a cost saving option.
The last, PCB talks a lot
That’s all. Hope it’s helpful to you all.

How to Activate BMW F45 Cruise Control by VO Coding

Car model: BMW F46 (F45/F48)

Purpose: Enable Cruise Control

Coding device: BMW ENET cable and E-sys coding software

enet-cable-review

Why?

Once you have your car Cruise Control switch physically installed, you will need to activate your Cruise Control feature in your BMW through “VO coding”.

Note that the procedure is also applicable to enable “Enhanced Bluetooth” feature or other VO code procedure.

The modules that are required to be coded will be different though. For example, “Enhanced Bluetooth” will require HU_ENTRYNAV module only.

In order to avoid any VCM update errors (this does not affect your coding), go to the top of E-SYS and click Options > Settings > Options tab. UNCHECK both check boxes ->  “Update VCM after TAL execution” and “Update MSM after TAL execution.”

 

How to: VO Code 544 to enable Cruise Control

1) Run E-Sys coding sofware, Click “Read” button and then “Active FA”:

VO Code 1

2)  Go to “SALAPA-Element” and right click and select “Edit”:

VO Code 2

3) Add the value “544,” into the SALAPA-Element and click the “Save” button on the right as highlighted.

VO Code 3

4)  Click the “save” button to save the file into a XML file with your desired file name.

VO Code 4

5) Go to “VCM” section and load the same XML file that you had saved.

VO Code 5

6) Right click “calculate FP” and you will see the Vehicle Profile generated.

VO Code 6

VO Code 7

7) Click the “Write FA FP” button which will writes into your ECU memory.

VO Code 8

8) To enable Cruise Control for BMW F45/F46/F48, you will need to E-Sys VO code these 4 modules:

1) BDC_BODY

2) HU_ENTRYNAV

3) KOMBI (or  BKOMBI)

4) DSC2

9) Go to “Coding” section, click “Read ECU” button on the right and then right click on the above-mentioned modules and select “Code”. This will enable the settings required for your Cruise Control. Note that the engine need not be switched off for this operation to work successfully.

10) Test your Cruise Control switch to ensure that it has been enabled successfully.

11) It is recommended to remove the VO Code after the coding has been performed.

If VO code is something that you don’t prefer to modify, you can perform FDL codings only as such to enable Dynamic Cruise Control:

BDC_BODY

PfLinSteeringWheel -> 3140 > LIN_VARIANTE_MFL = DCC_Sports_SLD

HU_NBT 

EXBOX 3001 > DCC = aktiv

KOMBI  :FZG_Ausstattung -> 3003 > LDM_VERBAUT = dcc

DSC2

DSC_FAS_CODIERDATEN 3009 > C_Fahrfunktion = DCC

How to install Ford IDS V86 software:

IDS 86 Windows 7 64 bit

IDS 86 Windows 7 32 bit

IDS 86 Windows XP

 

In detail…

 

running Windows 7 64bit(suggestion from users)

 

using vcm2 with software version v86

without freezing or otherwise was as follows
Install v86 reboot
patch ids reboot
install calibration files reboot
install extended programming reboot
when installing I just installed in compatibility mode for windows xp sp3 and don’t have a problem, I did have an issue with the wireless because windows wanted to take over everything, its on a dell d531 with 4gb ram, which I use to run a vm image of ids 106 which chris one of the members on here posted, also running on a dell e6320 with 8gb ram, v86 in windows 64bit native and the 106 in vm. ids driver version 5112, only real problem I had was when I tried to upgrade the firmware through vm which left the vcm2 locked, used the bosch manager inside my v86 to reflash back in windows native, took about 25 min and saved my unit.

 

running Windows 7 32bit(suggestion from users)

 

Just Installed Version IDS V86 onto fresh laptop running Win7 32bit. The Patch within the the IDSv86.partXX.rar files did not work. But Loaded IDS_v86_patch worked perfect. Had to kill detection manager and probetickhandler in task manager before it worked. Checking IDS Software license Type Evaluation. Days Remaining on Licence Unknown
Question
Will the programming feature expire after 60 days or does it need a fix or does the patch fix that?

Tested it with Ford PCM on the bench with using 3x different VCM’s.
First VCM
1. Original VCM Ver79 => V86 Worked Perfect + Programming PCM .PASS
Second VCM
This one had issue running on V53 not stable, but works great Now
2. Clone VCM Ver53 => V86 Worked Perfect + Programming PCM. PASS
Third VCM
3. Clone VCM Ver79 => V86 Work ok for diagnostics but fails to Programming PCM. FAIL

 

running Windows XP: (Tech support from obdii365.com)

 

1 Install a new fresh windows

  1. Make sure o firewall activated no antivirus
  2. Install the Ford IDS V86 Software, then reboot PC
  3. Update it if you have the upgrades files till v86.04 ( the last one )
  4. Then reboot
  5. Apply the patch and choose to be for VCM 86.01A and for what kind of tool do you have.
  6. Reboot and start the IDS V86 software for use

 

Hope it’s helpful.

Ford IDS 109 FAQs:

 

It VCM 1 is compatible?

Yes, it can work with Ford VCM 1 clone

 

Works good with VCM2 clone?

I have Chinese clone VCM2 SP177-C1 and it works great with impressive speed. I would definitely recommend this guy.

 

Hi how about Online ? It will be work with cloned VCMII ?

can do online , work with original and clone VCMs

 

So just to confirm the testman.exe and other DLLs in the Runtime folder are all v109? I’ve found that many other hacked versions are build using v106 and not all features work with 2017+ vehicles. 

i know , some softwares can not work with 2017 cars , i know what to do for supporting 2017 cars .
i will change some files for it .

 

What is the price??? and where to?

$79.99 with free shipping, installation & activation service

Someone please test 2017 f150 key programming north america model

For F150 2017 need minimum IDS and NASTF account !!!

 

I have a vmware version of IDS 108.07, that appears to be built on 106 based on the file versions of a lot of the DLLs in the Runtime folder. Using a genuine VCM II with the 2.4.73.49 firmware, I canNOT do TCM module programming on a 2017. 

Never tried TCM on 2017+ but that’s a possibility.
All hack I’ve seen are based on v86, v101 or v106.
Never seen a hack based on v109 executables and DLLs .. that’s why I’m asking but he won’t answer that question.

 

What vcm2 firmware are you using ??

My point is.. all “good” clone can upgrade firmware to 2.4.73.49 no problem.

On newer vehicle’s BCM replacement, the procedure requires to get configuration restored ( looks like JLR process ). After you done PMI of the said BCM you must complete that configuration restore or the BCM installation won’t be completed and so DTC will show up and/or the bcm won’t work correctly. I’m not talking about PATS functions which do need a dealer login or other tools to complete.

Once again my point is you do require firmware 2.4.73.49 for this procedure on most newer cars like 2015 + focus or escape and probably other model too. Running this procedure with 2.3.85.7 or older firmware will show error in the process.

Now that being said, if your software allow the use of 2.4.73.49 firmware, and has the v109 testman.exe and other executable files, then it should be working. But if you are using v86 testman.exe and other executable files and DLL with odler firmware, I strongly recommend not trying to install BCMs on newer car. And so other functionality might not work too.

 

Here is a bcm replacement failed with firmware 2.3.85.7 and IDS 107. Same I’d happening with v108 and v109. You do require newer firmware.

How to troubleshoot Porsche 996 airbag with Foxwell NT510

Customer solution:

I picked up a Foxwell NT510 multi-system scanner in December,2017, I ordered the Porsche version (you can get one model). Their spec sheet says it works with my car year and model-Porsche 2002 911 Carerra.

I just got around to trying it last night, and it is pretty interesting, lots of good stuff in a small handheld unit.

One if the first things I wanted to do is resetting airbag lights – both of my cars have them on (one because I replaced the seats with the battery connected, and the other because it had racing seats in it before I put the stock seats back in).

The unit works fine, it reads codes, can track real time values, etc. But I can’t figure out how to see the airbag stuff, and I think I’ve looked at all of the menus.

When I google this, the YouTube video shows a guy whose NT510 has a Porsche logo on the home screen, in addition to the OBD II icon. Mine doesn’t have a Porsche (or any other manufacturer) icon, so I’m wondering if I have to install, configure, or download something to activate it.

I do have an email out to their support people.  They replied very quickly and suggested me registering my unit. Users can register and then download/upgrade the software for a specific automaker.  That was exactly what the issue was.
For posterity:

  • I needed to register with Foxwell, get an ID
  • Once I registered, I needed to login to their portal and register my NT510 using a serial number and password that is on the help screen in the device
  • I needed to install their desktop software
  • Remove the microsim from the side of the unit
  • Plug the microsim into the microsim/usb adapter (supplied)
  • Download the Porsche software (select Porsche and click download – the first car brand is free, subsequent car brands are an additional charge)
  • Hit the update button, it updates all of the software OBDII, Porsche, etc.
  • Eject the USB adapter
  • Put the microsim back into the side of the NT510 Foxwell
  • The Porsche icon is now on the home screen
  • The unit updated

I was able to read the airbag codes and reset the airbag light. Mission accomplished.
This information isn’t anywhere on the box, in the printed manual (that I can find).
