However, BMW has not offered this feature in the US market until just recently, even though many recent models with active cruise control already have the software and most of the hardware required. Specifically, BMW adds a capacitive steering wheel, sensor module, and wiring that is used to detect hands on the steering wheel and presume that if the driver####x2019;s hands are on the wheel, the driver is in control of the vehicle. The hardware isn####x2019;t commonly available in the USA, and requires airbag removal, etc. The Quidzel Hands On Detection test emulator communicates with the car as if you had retrofitted the capacitive steering wheel. This small module installs in minutes, allows you to test the TJA functionality by coding the car for the new functionality, and is fully reversible.
It is easiest to apply the code as a one-shot VO FA change across all the modules, as different cars have different modules. The initial hurdle to coding your car is a little steep, so you might ask for some help from someone advertising BMW retrofit coding services. ####x200B;####x200B;####x200B;####x200B;####x200B;####x200B;####x200B. It must be said that you must remain attentive and in control of the car. You are responsible to monitor and correct your car####x2019;s driving ####x2013; you will find that TJA is not autonomous driving and its technical ability is limited.
To take advantage of this feature, you already must have active cruise control and are aware of its limitations ####x2013; this adds steering assistance/control with similar limitations. Our HOD test emulator emulates the capacitance measurement, enabling BMW Traffic Jam Assist on your BMW vehicle with ACC (option code 5AT). Will you code this for me?If you are local, we offer installation and coding services at our facility in Anaheim, CA. What do I need to code my car? You####x2019;ll need a laptop, E-Sys and an Ethernet-OBDII connection; check forums for details and tutorials on setting that up. Can I use the Bimmercode/Carly app & V-gate dongle?
No, Bimmercode/Carly are limited in features and do not perform VO coding. How do I VO code option 5AR with e-sys? There####x2019;s two basic steps to the coding procedure, and this assumes you have gained familiarity and are comfortable working with e-sys. Modify your Vehicle Order to include 5AR 1. Under Expert Mode-> Vehicle Order -> Read FA and save in known location, and make a 2nd copy for backup 2.
Under Editors -> FA Editor, open saved FA file and expand all in left hand pane. Find SALAPA-Element field and add 5AR, (include the comma, and make sure that you####x2019;ve just entered those 4 characters after another comma).
Enter the data with the arrow box (lower right) above the text box. You should see 5AR listed as an option now in the right hand pane. In expert Mode-> VCM, open the saved FA file using ####x2026; under the file tab near the bottom.
Calculate FP again to ensure the 5AR option is shown on the right. In expert Mode-> VCM, Write FA FP to write the saved FA file in the master tab near the bottom. Now your Vehicle Order has been rewritten.
If you read your car####x2019;s vehicle order, it should have 5AR TJA as an option on the right hand pane after activating. Go back to expert mode->Coding, read ECU on the right. You should see all your ECUs populate on the left. Then go save all the current FDL coding to a different folder for backup. This will update all modules CAFD for the new FA.Generally all modules need to be updated with the new FA, even if the 5AR change only affects BDC_Body, Kombi, & ICM/SAS.
