Hi Terry, donīt forget about us with JB4 Stage 2 and with P3Gauge connected to OBD II:)

Yes, that does cause CANbus problems. The P3 takes up some of the bandwidth the JB4 would be using. So instead of taking in 10 samples/second it only gets 5 samples/second. Jason has a P3 gauge in his 435 so we have lots of first hand experience with it. Trying to work with Rick @ P3, an old friend, to improve that situation is also on my to-do list.

Thanks :happy

Hey guys,

I found some commands for the LED lights on the F80. Turning on and off the DRLs, etc. What sort of coding are you guys doing these days for lighting on the platform?

Also any interest in having the module open the windows if you hold down the remote, flash a light in the car to simulate an alarm, or stuff like that, one might normally do via coding?

Worked up some sample code to turn the F80 LED HALOs on max brightness at night vs. their normal dimmer setting. I have to admit it looks pretty trick. Some teasers. :)

It works great. It's actually a huge difference. Love it.

Is there a way to do this with the JB4 ?! please it will make huge difference with my car

Terry @ BMS 02-20-2015 08:36 AM

Not currently. The JB4 is on the PTCAN and to work this stuff has to be on a different CANbus. Down the road I'm going to work on finding a way to relocate the JB4 to the interior CANbus to enable these sorts of features. But it's tricky because the sample rate for engine data will be slower.

That boost/fuel guage is pure awesome, love how it defaults back to fuel and retains that functionality a dead fuel guage everytime you stop looks silly to anyone else, props on that logic.

I definitely would like to help test/buy one of these with v2 firmware on it.
Can you hook me up Terry?

Some things I cannot accomplish via coding on my F83:
-3 yellow led side marker delete (inside the headlight unit only visible from profile)

-Fold mirrors on lock with remote (works by using comfort close, putting your finger on the 3 bars in the door handle) but doesnt work over fob

-Disable the car putting itself into neutral with the door open & seat belt off (both conditions are required) but then it puts itself into neutral and gives a warning about securing the vehicle from rolling, then also refuses to let the car be secured or go into KL15OFF. It will sit on playing music all night if you don't walk up to the car and push the start/stop button. Kind of ridiculous. The factory behavior when pushing lock on the remote is to actually have the car honk at you twice. Even more ridiculous if you ask me. The honking at me--which made me want to kick my own car-- I disabled via coding, but it still wont go into park or be allow you to secure via remote until the start stop button is pushed (activating the parking brake) then it behaves normally again. I can't understand why they wouldnt make pushing secure on the fob when its in neutral do the exact same thing as physically pushing the start/stop button and activate the park brake and secure the vehicle.

currently my only solution is to get another seat belt (passengers) buckle and leave it plugged in... which fixes half of the problem, the car shifting itself into neutral, thus avoiding the second problem.

Just grab one along with a BMS USB cable and I can email you the test firmware.

I'm not sure if we can technically do any of those things but I'll keep them in mind!

gundal 02-20-2015 10:15 AM

by usb cable you mean this?

http://www.burgertuning.com/USB_Cable_Extension.html

and a standard usb -> serial com port adapter wont work?

Can it be flashed via odb dcann+usb cable?

Terry @ BMS 02-20-2015 11:08 AM

The $35 BMS USB cable in your link is the only method for updating it.

FC4 02-20-2015 05:09 PM

Terry, any difference regarding disabling Active Sound on the F30/F32 than the M3/4? I understand that 2014+ F-Series also have Active Sound although not as noticeable as the Ms.

Thanks

Terry @ BMS 02-20-2015 06:49 PM

I wasn't actually aware they had it. I'll poke around in our 435 next week and determine that.

Hey Terry, I still have a BMS CAN tool for the R56 mini that was since discontinued. Is there an upgrade path so that I can use it for my new M3? For example if I buy your USB cable, can I then upload the F8x firmware on that box?

No, it's fundamentally different, so you can't update it at home. It has to be flashed and a minor change made to the circuit board. We can update old systems for $100 + return shipping though. Just send in the box without the OBDII cable.

Terry @ BMS 02-21-2015 03:05 PM

Anyone out there ready to help test the new features & firmware?

kfardan 02-22-2015 08:31 AM

I have a ******** installed can this module auto clear the CEL just like JB4?

There is a code delete function but keep in mind removing emissions equipment is not legal unless you're talking about a competition race car used only in competitive events. Deleting the codes will NOT set readiness or anything like that.

Ive been waiting for this! Does the new firmware include the angel eye mod? anyways send me the update, ill be glad to test run it and report back!

Terry @ BMS 02-23-2015 03:12 PM

Yes! Email me and I can shoot it over.

Terry! ran into a big problem, i tried update this thing via jb4 software and once i connected to com3 (correct port for me) and clicked update firmware and loaded the hex, i got an error saying "unhandled exception has occured in your application. if you click continue the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. if you quit the application will close" i clicked continue and it just stayed at loaded hex forever. so i clicked disconnect and now it wont connect anymore saying failedcom3, even tho that the right port. the module not working at all anymore :( what am i suppose to do??
