Kmoy2002 - BMW Diagnostic Scanner PA Soft 1.4 Settings
 
Received my PA Soft Scanner today and decided to do some testing. Here is my contribution. If you have any technical difficulties with the scanner itself, direct them in this thread:
http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=893444

Keep this thread strictly related to settings. I read through all 45 pages of the Official PA Soft thread and it is 95% discussion on how to install it on their computer of which I got working on Windows 7 64bit.

ZKE Options:
To do any of the functions in the ZKE section:
- select "Coding data"

To activate the alarm optics without having a physical alarm:
-check DWA
-check the options with "optics"
*note if you have bits and pieces of the oem alarm, you may enable those options

To activate a OEM alarm:
-check DWA
-check DWA interior sensor
-uncheck DWA interior sensor, rear (unless you have a convertible which has a front and rear interior sensor)
-check DWA tilt alarm sensor
-check the options with "optics" and "acoustics"
*note you must have all 3 (4 for convertibles) pieces to the alarm otherwise your car will throw a code. e.g. you have the siren and motion sensor but no tilt; your DWA will show a fault and will not arm. Siren will still go off if doors are breached.

To enable remote closing windows:
-default "Opening (remote control)" is checked and "Locking (remote control)" is unchecked
-check "Locking (remote control)" to enable closing with remote
*note the lock button closes and unlock opens the windows upon holding of the key

To enable one click to unlock all doors:
-default "Selective" is checked. This allows one click of the unlock button of the remote to unlock the drivers door. A second click unlocks remainder passenger doors
-check "No" to unlock all doors with one press of the unlock button
http://i.imgur.com/LRBFH.jpg

To change the tilt of the passenger mirror when in reverse:
-default "Memory" is unchecked
-set mirror switch to passenger. The mirror will tilt to your personal position.
-to set your position, have switch on passenger side, and adjust your mirror while in reverse gear.
*note if "Memory" is checked mirror switch must be set to passenger for option to work. Switching to driver will disable the auto-tilt.
**note if "Memory" is unchecked mirror switch must be set to driver for tilt to work (by default it tilts to the maximum amount). Switching to passenger will disable the auto-tilt.

You might want high beams for the alarm as well. My settings:

I like the idea of a settings thread. Just so you don't get bombarded... You may want to explain how to get into those screens to change the settings... I don't have my setup with me or I would try to list them.

Keep this thread on track and all will be well.

*updated

Went out today to play around with the software and took some better screenshots. This should direct enthusiast in the right direction.

I am very interested in changing the tilt of the passenger mirror when in reverse, this will be very useful. when i put the car in reverse it tilts all the way down and it's difficult to see when you're parking close to the curb. does that really work? anyone else tested it? i dont have the software yet, also please post how to activate the signal flash with keyless unlock and lock. thanks.

You can adjust the mirror with the mirror switch, first put the car in the reverse, wait till the mirror goes all the way down, then adjust the mirror with the switch.

Im surprised how I could not do Euro Hazards on my friends 04' m3 but did it on my 01' non-m

BigDRick323 07-30-2012 04:28 PM

When I scanned to find out what was wrong with my AC somehow now my Angel eyes don't come on. Thoughts?

lakedude90 07-31-2012 08:52 AM

Do you think you could show how to clear all the adaptations? I have been thinking about wanting to clear mine just to see how the car runs when it needs to start "learning" again

Yes, PLEASE someone post how to do this.

I'll paypal you $5 if you can.

Adaptions relearn from driving and have nothing to do with DRIVER Behavior doing so will not gain any long term benefit. I have not looked at PA Soft but if it could do it it would be in the DME under functions

Well if the driver changed his driving habits, or there is a new driver altogether, there would be benefits.

I only stated the above because PA Soft cannot reset adaptations. At least not with the algorithm it uses for my car.

Hmm odd I figured it would. The adaptions are constantly changing again resting them will gain you NO long term benefit as they will go to the same spot there were at over the next 200 miles.

Placebo effect at its best :)

Long term you're correct. However people add various performance altering mods which benefit from resetting adaptations sooner, rather than waiting the car to adjust over 200mi.

Flashing the DME yeilds another requirement for this feature, otherwise the car will be basically undrivable.

When you flash the DME adaptations are reset.......

Might be best to start a new thread about this rather than clutter this one?? I would be happy to add the technical data on this topic.

Not for me and anyone else who did it themselves they weren't.

I guess you'll try to argue that I don't use the right tool, or its something pirated, or another reason along those lines, am I right? Yes, this is thread clutter.




Anyone can feel free to copy/paste my screenshots from the other thread, most of what there is to be done with the BMW Scanner 1.4 has already been posted. Just need someone to write that one post to sum it all up.

No not arguing about that your reason to do the DME update is faulted. I would think PA soft could reset this if you wanted. I suggested a thread to discuss the merits and how to do this.

whoaaa sooo

If I use this, and uncheck the "HOT check" and "COLD check" for the front turn signals, does this mean I can install LED turn signal lights, not use resistors, and still not throw an error? That would be awesome. If somebody has done this, please let me know.
