I already have a MS42 thread. That's not the point. Point is the MS43 map names we have are a translation, possibly incorrect translation, of a German original A2L (obviously not done well as it was not completely translated). The Maps, if it exists in another BMW ECU, with the unaltered German titles, might give better information. Or at the very least another clue to the use of the map. To me this is the same as looking at a MS430055 data dump trying to interpret a MS430037. Or looking at the S54 Data to get ideas on what MS43 data might have in it.

Forgive my error in bringing up other data beyond the one ECU.

Was INPA listing that in error in shadow or active faults?

I got no dtc in ScanMaster-ELM, but the maf code appeared within INPA
Because scanmaster is generic Eobd reader and INPA reads factory BMW codes only. This means you deleted generic codes but not the factory codes. Generic codes are not the same as factory codes, that is well known so I doubt you are german.

In Laws were visiting over the weekend so I had lots of time on my hands. So finished the MS430069 (and pulled a transmission and engine from one E46 and another engine from another E46.)

There is now a taylored A2L for the following versions on my google drive.
It now has A2L's for versions
MS430037
MS430055
MS430056 - Original A2L
MS430066
MS430069

As a BONUS. I uploaded the file I used to align the addresses. So this has the address & name of the item in the A2L (Value, curve, map etc) with up to the first 16 bits of data shown. All side by side. Makes comparision between versions pretty easy. I think most everything is aligned pretty good except the portion of the MS430037 in the 42000 range. It is either radically different in values or doesn't exist.

Screen shot from the .xls sheet below (sheet is ont the google drive)

Hope this is helpful.

Hello Hakan,

Thanks for your input. Might want to consider that Germans aren't born with a knowlege of BMW's. So I don't see how this factors into where he lives.

I've loaded the XDF against a MS430056 version I was adapting/working.
The map locations are perfect!

It loads directly into TunerPro and works immediately on partial reads with a 0x70000 offset

Yah I did a bulk translation of the A2L to XDF some time ago. Only had the MS430056 A2L though. And at the time didn't even realize that it was for the MS430056.

I haven't looked at the XDF in awhile. I'm not a tuner pro expert so wouldn't surprise me if there was a mistake in choosing which tuner pro thing to translate too or something. I know a bit more now so could look at it again. But ASAP2demo and the A2L's seem easier to work with at the moment.

I still have the .xls file I used to make the XDF. When I get some time I'll look over the changes Daniel mention. Making a new XDF isn't as easy as making my A2L updates, which once the change is made is simply is copy, paste and save. It's more like Copy, paste, copy, paste, copy, paste then save

Here's a link to where I shared the XDF in April :-)

My Ride: E46 and E53
I would like to be of assistance if possible. I swapped a M54B30 out of an 05 330i ZHP into a 02 325i. I converted the ZHP motor to MS43 and have tried a few factory software versions, currently running the EU2 program 7545671. I am no where near your guys level with deciphering the software but if anything I can do would be helpful then just let me know and I will do whatever I can.

I may be completely wrong here, but if we keep in mind the alpina engine doesn´t have a exhaust vanos...
Yah same here. Holidays and other projects been pulling me in other directions.

Interesting. Wonder what the best way to verify this would be? Have you tried Unpluging the exhaust cam sensor (will cause an error code) and then changing that setting and see if the error doesn't show.
