Coding in general (and rear LED lights specifically)

Recommended Posts

Looks like I'll to come to grips with the procedure for coding. I have recently replaced the non-OEM LED rear lights on my coupe with OEM LED units, mainly because of the messy appearance inside the boot, and being not a big fan of aftermarket bolt-ons, especially when BMW OEM parts are available. So, I now have the light fault on the dash and the taillights flicker. Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to code the car for LED lights to correct both of these issues? I have INPA which I've use for code reading and I believe I also have the software for coding.

Cheers for your help.

Have you checked any loose wiring on the back lights???

 

mine was flickering when I pulled the ignition key out with the lights switch still on.. My rear brake lights would flicker like a Christmas tree.. Found this fault to happen when I cut into the  back lights loom for my rear reversing camera.

Nope, definitely not a wiring fault.

Anyone have any pointers/help with coding for led lights?

Ok, got this sorted now. After lots of reading, I waded into NCS Expert after only having used INPA previously. 

As per the various guides, I updated the VO by adding the +LEDH and writing that to the ALSZ and AKMB modules. Then, reinitialising the ALSZ module by writing a blank file to it. Worked a charm! No more flickering, no more bulb-out indicators.

I didn't have any luck trying to set the individual warm and cold checks to inactive.

Sometimes persistence pays off!
