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:

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

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.

EWS Options:

To check the number of keys you have used:
-select key status
-you may also disable keys if you lost them from this menu as well
note* as you can see, I have two keys out there in the world from the previous owner as I only own two of them

To view live data:
-select live data

To DISABLE the clutch switch:
-select "Coding data"
-select "Settings and manufacture settings"
-select Manual transmission
note* only for manuals
note** this allows you to start the car without having to depress the clutch

SRS Options:

To view live data about your airbags:
-select live data

To DISABLE seat occupancy sensor:
-select "coding data"
-select "Equipment"
-uncheck "Seat occupancy recognition"
note* I haven't tired this as I don't need to nor have I installed aftermarket bucket seats

To DISABLE seat belt light:
-select "coding data"
-select "Equipment"
-uncheck "Seat-belt buckle switch"
note* I haven't tried this myself as I always wear a seat-belt nor have a race harness

IKE Options:
In the IKE menu you can change items such as service intervals frequency (ie. km/mi until next service), etc

LCM Options:

To enable or disable your DRL:
-select "coding data"
-toggle the options for "running lights"
