Can you program DSC to be OFF by default? MK60

Was wondering if DSC could be programmed to be off by default and to only have it on after pressing the button?


While we're on the topic of programming - is it possible to program the seat heaters to be on by default, instead of having to turn it on every time I get in the car in the cold months

The seats are on a timer so that's a circuit restriction which makes it impossible. You definitely don't want them on everytime because I feel like the timer would have to be disabled. You could possibly rewire the system to be on with ignition on and a basic on/off push button. That sounds like a headache though and you'll most likely destroy your seat because unchecked, the heating element will get to 400F.

DSC might be possible with the program the software was written with or ingenious coding skill. The ABS would have to be rewritten probably recoded from scatch. The switch isn't a mechanical on because it resets when vehicle shuts off and is turned back on. Because of this, I believe a BMW engineer could do this...
