In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through the step-by-step procedure of retrofitting your BMW F30/F18 with ID5/EVO without encountering CAFD missing. By following these instructions carefully, you'll be able to enjoy the advanced features and enhanced user experience of the ID5/EVO system in your BMW. Let's dive in!
Section 1: Connecting E-sys to BMW F20/F18 and Selecting F20
To begin the retrofitting process, you need to connect E-sys to your BMW F20/F18. Follow these steps:
Connect E-sys to your BMW F20/F18 using the appropriate diagnostic cable.
Launch the E-sys software on your computer.
Within E-sys, select F20 as the model.
Section 2: Changing Model to 8W31 and Year 0716
To ensure compatibility and a successful retrofit, you'll need to change the model to 8W31 and the year to 0716. Here's how:
Locate the model and year settings within the E-sys software.
Change the model to 8W31 and the year to 0716.
Section 3: Preparing the VO File and Including Necessary Parameters
Before coding the main unit, it's essential to prepare the VO (vehicle order) file and include specific parameters. Follow these steps:
Delete the VO file that begins with "6A" to prevent conflicts during coding.
Include the following parameters in your VO file: 609, 6NS, 6NR, 6CP, 6WA, and 3AG. These parameters are necessary because the main unit does not have an ATM and has a built-in GPS.
Section 4: Coding the Main Unit
Coding the main unit is a crucial step in the retrofitting process. Here's what you need to do:
Launch the coding section within the E-sys software.
Follow the on-screen instructions to code the main unit.
After coding, you may notice that the CID (Central Information Display) shows no signal. This is expected for BMW F30 and F18 models without the ID5 screen, resembling the G series.
Congratulations! You have successfully retrofitted your BMW F30/F18 with the ID5/EVO system without encountering CAFD missing. By following the step-by-step procedures outlined in this guide, you can enjoy the advanced features and improved user experience offered by the ID5/EVO system in your BMW. Now you can navigate, communicate, and access various multimedia functions seamlessly. Enjoy your upgraded driving experience!
