Yeah the process is confusing, I spent all last week scouring the forums on how to do some of this stuff. EDIASBAS, INPA, and NCSExpert ( as well as a few other tools ) are typically part of the same install package.

Since the Package requires all the folders to be in a certain place on Windows I actually had to create two separate virtual machines, one for INPA 4.4.7 and one for INPA 5.0.1 . I would recommend just running NCSExpert and INPA from the 4.4.7 and not even bother with 5.0.1.

To update this a little...

BBA re manufacturing is now repairing the ATE TEVES MK60 abs module for $250.

Plus shipping there and back with insurance. It cost me $300 total with a lifetime warranty.

The repair order shows the solder joints to be cracked and a component that was changed. I would like to know which component that would be. To just check the module is $50 plus the 2 way shipping totaling $90.

You should not have to recode your module since it is the original module.
They started repairing them the first of this year.

It's not back in the car yet. Ill update when it is

The instructions on the link you posted are for coding options. He starts out explaining everything, however, when it comes to coding module he explains that its too complicated for an amateur. I would like to know exactly how to recode a used module.....I found this

http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum....php?t=1765680

Going to try it today

This problem has been solved. Used abs modules for the e46 can be recoded.

With the help of dwoodland I was able to get this fixed. The hours he spent figuring this out paved the way.

The link in the above post followed exactly will recode the module.
Then you will have the 5e1f code after that. Meaning steering angle is not recognized.

You then calibrate the steering angle. I used dis v57 to do this. I found 1 video in Spanish that showed this working and the steps. I will try to find it and post it.

Inpa 4.4.7 does this as well. Inpa 5.0.1 DOES NOT calibrate steering angle. But it does usually include dis v57 which does

After that. You are done. Total time was 20 minutes

Hi! I am having same exact problem! I tried to recode yesterday using the same method as http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum...e-w-NCS-Expert except that I selected mine as E46. But, I do not get the option to program DSC module. Check out the screenshot. It does not show DSC at all :/

Update: I figured out that DSC is also MK60. I did code MK60 and it went thorugh, but my KMB for some reason still shows a different VIN, my DSC light is still on and I still get the code 5e1f.

Recalibrate steering angle sensor to remove 5e1f

If you did the steps above. Read the code and recoded. The vin should match your car

So it has to be read first and then coded? Hmmm, I think I just pressed on code right away. I'll try again today.
Also, my INPA is 5, so can I do the recalibration with GT1? Thanks a lot for responding.

Yes you can with gt1 but its buried in the software. There isnanyountube tutorial in Spanish that helped me. I didn't understand it but the steps made sense.

On the recode. The link above when followed exactly will recode the module.

Thanks! I found couple of youtube videos, but they don't show the process from the very start, which is connecting it to the car. I hope I'll figure it out.

Guuuys!!! I f**kin did this!!!
It was not as smooth as I expected, but it is gone! After a year and a half having this stupid light in my face, it is finally gone!

Anyway, my situation was different from this one: http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum...e-w-NCS-Expert

I did have to recode the MK60 just in case with that method above (just in case). After I did that, I opened GT1 immediately, did the quick test. It still showed that the VIN is not matching, so I though, whatever, I'll just give it a try, so I continued with the angle sensor matching. That completed successfully. I restarted the car and BAM... the stupid lights still there. So I completed the whole procedure once again, but this time, I noticed that the test results were different. Specifically, the VIN non matching code said - currently not present. So I did the sensor matching again... Restarted... Lights still up!
I connected my CRP123 (kudos to jfoj for recommending that), went into my DSC and cleared the codes and BAM, the light turned off!
Maybe it was possible to clear the codes from GT1 (probably was), but this is my first day working with that soft that's why I did not want to play around too much
Thanks to all of you fanatics! Wouldn't be able to do it without you!

I know how you feel. Mine was there for a year and a half s well. This job has been said on numerous occasions that it can't be done.... and we are finally able to fix ours and help others as well. Hopefully we can get a 100% success rate out of this.

Some of the replacement part numbers are unclear unless you get the exact part number that came with your car. Some from other e46 cars are compatible.

We need a list with modules from different years that will fit.

On ebay there is a Russian who sells the package cheap. If you ask.....he takes over your computer and sets it up for you. I have a dedicated laptop for the car. He set it up and it worked great

That's great to know, do u remember how much it cost? Did u have to get a cable and solder 2 of the pins together? Or did the Russian guy hook you up with a cable? I saw that some people have done this but I don't really understand why yet...

I need to clear off my laptop then I will b dedicating it to bmw software, as this seems to b the norm..
