OK, here is my status - I have NCS Expert working.

I coded the current LCM and the new to enable bi xenon with halogen for highbeams and to NOT turn off fogs when flash to pass or high beams…this thing is going to be a space ship with high beams on…

I reactivated the euro flashers

And on the new module the three blinks - BUT, I HAVE THE TAMPER DOT with the new LCM and couldn’t figure out how to get rid of it…I tried to go in through Progman to code a replacement but I couldn’t get progman to see more than 12.4v at pin 30…even with my huge/consistent charger with various settings for volts/amps (and this charger has worked with another persons progman before)

So, I have my original LCM in there right now.

Further…

I coded key controlled roll up of windows and folding with key mirrors and changed the max speed for which I can fold the mirrors - I can now do it while on the road instead of dead stop


I need to remember to turn off NAV accept (I had it before but with my meddling tonight I lost it)

So, left to do (that I can think of) is NAV accept, tamper dot removal (and checking coding on that LCM) and then hope that none of the automatic trans coding has seeped back in…ugh….

hey stu, is it possible to code rolling up the windows when lock the car and pushing the lock button second time, they will close? or how do you have it?
because now I have to hold the button until it closes..

edit: because I was told that this is not possible to code..

I have mine (and I think the only way) where quick push of lock button only locks doors...holding lock button rolls up windows and folds mirrors (you have to hold the button the entire time until windows and sunroof close to your liking or fully)

If you learn there is a way to press lock button twice and get "one-touch" rollup - let me know

My Ride: station wagon
yea there is a conception that wider is better but lets face it, in US from factory, all our wagons came with smaller 6 engines, 8" and 225//235 tires are more than enough to handle the furious 180hp.

I have 235 on 8" all around. Offset can be adjusted with spacers

Hahahaha...that's awesome!

I have 225/45 on 17x8.5 which is a slight stretch and although I don't like it using my precious almost new pilot sports from my stock sport wheels was a no brainer than spending copious amounts on new 235s
