Can the CAN Flap Module be purchased in California?

joec1101 04-26-2018 08:24 AM

Hey Terry,

So I received my CAN Flap Module and installed it yesterday in my 2018 F87 M2 - the exhaust flap functionality works perfect, but when I go into the menu, the tach needle wiggles erratically back and forth instead of stopping at each menu option. Is this a firmware issue maybe? How can I check to see if it has the latest firmware?

Thanks for your help, Terry :)

We'll have to update the firmware for the new dash types.

Hi Terry,

Any new firmware update for this yet?

Thanks...:)

"Many more feautures to be added" ......
Have there been any updates to this Fxx Can Flap module since release back in 2015 ? Maybe i just missed them or cannot see them. Can u help out ?

joec1101 09-25-2018 08:07 AM

I haven't seen any...Terry? Any updates for this? The new dash doesn't work correctly with the CAN FLAP firmware...

Terry @ BMS 09-25-2018 03:16 PM

No updates at this time. Once we crack the digital dash we'll update the CANflap at that time.

Hey Terry!

I found my old CAN Tool that I bought from you back in the N54 days (2010), is it possible to reflash it and reuse it as a can flap tool for my F80?

Terry @ BMS 02-14-2019 10:53 PM

Yes! Send it in and we can reflash it for you.

Great! :) Is it possible to flash it myself via USB? Otherwise I still have the EEPROM programmer from the JB3 days...

If not, I'll send it in but since I live in Sweden it would be easier to do it myself!

Terry @ BMS 02-15-2019 09:58 AM

No it's not. But, we could ship you a 2580 chipset for it for $25 + shipping. Just email in to sales to inquire.

Curious to know being that its about a year later, is there any luck with this?

I bought this a while back for my F80, and now have an F32 440i with the 6WB option (Digital Cluster).

Terry @ BMS 08-27-2019 09:31 AM

Sorry no digital dash support yet for menus although the CANflap operation should work

Hey Terry,

I have an CAN Flap Module whichs works fine in a M3 competition. Now I have a 2019 F33 440i with gasoline particulate filter (german version, no digital dash) and found out, that the flaps are no longer working with my car. The indicator in the dash works like expected, left - activated, right - deactivated, but not the flap itself.

Has there been probably any other firmware update since July 2016 (this was the last version I found mentioned in the forum) which can solve the issue?

Thanks
Micha

We have made changes to the in dash part but the flapper commands should be unchanged. It's possible for 2019 440i they have changed the exhaust command for DRF cars, since there is no car local here, it's difficult to determine. But I'll see if any other DRF customers report a similar issue.

Hi Terry,

To revive an old thread, I also have installed this on a car with an OPF/GFP (2020 M4).

I had the same issue as BomberF33 - no matter what setting (open/closed/OEM) the flaps remained closed. Even stranger, once removing the module, the flaps remained closed regardless of engine mode until I had shutoff the car and come back later in the day.

Playing around yesterday evening I found that it might be related to the ASD settings: I had enabled option 1 (ASD mute when flaps open), but after disabling this, the flaps seem to work as intended given the basic settings (open/close/OEM).

Will dig a little bit more.

Hi BomberF33,

Did you have any luck solving this issue? I also have a 440i and mine is having the same issue as you had, the indicators work as expected but the flap doesn’t actually change. Any help is appreciated.

joec1101 08-16-2021 01:43 PM

Hi Terry,

As you can tell, I'm bored AF not working anymore :rolleyes2

I purchased for my 2018 F87 the CAN flap Module from Etek in April 2018 - At the time the firmware did not work correctly with the new dash, but the flap control works.

Any updates to the firmware for this device? I can't seem to find any info on it.... If so, can you send me a link to download?

TIA

Terry @ BMS 08-16-2021 02:39 PM

No changes on that front

ashmostro 11-11-2021 05:10 PM

Hello Terry. I have a 2022 F90 M5 and was advised the can flap module will work on my car, but I'm not sure if it does. I can't enter adjustment mode through the BC stalk. Is it incompatible?

EDIT: I purchased the module direct from BMS in October, and as advised I ordered the F-chassis variant. Should I have gone with the G-chassis variant instead given the non-M 5-series is a G chassis?

Thanks

Terry,

Bought a Canbus unit for a 2017 BMW 340 with the MPPSK package. Unit flashes the blinker as expected but exhaust valve does not open or close. Can you send me the latest firmware update?
